New JKUNLIMITED Sport

ok well after 3 weeks of my local salesman & the sales manager trying to find exactly what I wanted they called me up and made me a deal. 2012 dark forest green, hard top only, 6 speed, 3.21 diff. I took the deal and have everything in writing. My 2013 order is placed and the price is set barring any incentives that might open up. They agreed to give me everything I paid for this jeep back when my custom order comes in. They were trying to make a quota and had to move a vehicle today. Basically I get to rent one for 3 months. I'm excited to be in A jeep even if it is not my order just yet.

Wait.. So they are giving you a Jeep to drive temporarily? Like a short lease?

No I bought it, but they are giving me full price back when I trade it in on my 2013. I will have to make 2 payments and lose the interest on 2 payments. I have everything in writing from the sales manager and general manager. They said they will take a small hit, but worth meeting the sales goal.

Never heard of any dealer doing that. Congrats! Sounds like the perfect deal for someone who is impatient(like myself lol).

Are you paying $45K for your 2013 JKU Sport? That is the only way I could possibly be seeing this happen

Not $45,000 or even near that. They gave me the tread lightly discount and $500 Chrysler loyalty something or another on the 2013 as well. They were supposed to close at 6 and stayed until almost 9 to finish the deal. They really needed the sale and I got a great deal. I'm happy now, but I'll be completly satisfied when I get my order.

Ok just got home from our road trip. I now have 1653 miles on the JKU I picked up last Friday night. Saturday morning we left out of Huntsville Al at 6:30 am and pulled into the drive in McHenry Il at 5:30 pm. Ran all over northern Il & southern Wisconson. Spent one day at summerfest. Other than it being 105* the entire time we had a great time. Every tank I got 21.??? MPG checked by hand at the pump. 6 speed with 3.21 gears was not bad on the hills in Ky & Tn as long as you were doing 70 MPH. Below that she would bog down and I had to downshift. First thing in the morning I will mow the yard and wash the jeep to get the bugs off. The accord would have been cheaper on gas, but nowhere near as fun to drive. Ok going to bed.

That's a crazy deal from the dealer. Sounds like the money they made by hitting quota was greater than the hit they'd take from the depreciation of one jeep they'll take back in.

Works out for both parties, so why not? Enjoy the jeep!

Metonymy, that is exactly what happened. I got it all in writing and could not pass it up.
