I have been lurking the forums for years and finally had an opportunity to join the club as a new owner.
I picked up my 2013 JKU Sahara from Kahlo Jeep in Noblesville, IN the other week. After only 1000 miles I know why this vehicle has the most loyal owners. The mod bug has already bitten and I have a list of parts on order (and some already on). I can't wait to take it to some of the off-road parks in the state.
On a side note, I am a little frustrated with the dealership and was looking for some advice. I traded in a 2011 Chrysler 300 Limited and purchased the JKU using green-slip (employee price). Kahlo gave me the best price on my 300 and went all the way to Kentucky to find the exact JKU I wanted. My frustration came in the finance office and afterwards when I realized I was lied to.
I asked the finance manager to submit our application to Chase because our mortgage and personal checking was done at Chase. She told us that the best rate was with Wells Fargo and stated that Chase was nearly 2% higher. After talking with our local branch, I found out that my rate quoted was higher than what it should be. I asked again if that was the best rate available and she said Wells Fargo was over 1% LOWER than everyone else. I found out today that she never sent my application to Chase and that only Wells Fargo and PNC ran my credit.
Does anyone on the forum know if it is illegal to lie about my finance options? I am appalled that she lied to my face on three different occasions. I plan on calling the owner of the dealership tomorrow but was looking for advice from members. Thanks in advance for any help!
I am going outside now to take a few pics. Stay tuned...
