Real cost of buying a jeep ... Need your opinion...please

K, here it goes

Ordered a jeep 2dr dozen sports s (loaded)last December
It is being delivered to the dealer this week. I can have it by Friday
Problem is the following

1.im in Canada
2. I bought the jeep through the fleet program (pricing as of December was 32,100 mrsp they gave me dealer pricing plus $1500 off .. So the end price was $29,100

For the month of February jeep had an incentive fleet program for $2250 ..plus I saw jeeps invoice to the dealer
So now the price is $27,900


So out of curiosity , I called another dealer , telling them I wanted the same jeep and options .. They priced the jeep at 26500.. And I have no clue how they went so low.

So I went to the original dealer and they said it was impossible .

I saw the dealer invoice that jeep sent them and it was at 28500$ -750

So am I getting ripped off ?
Is 27,900 a good price for. (2dr, dual top, connectivity pkg, power pkg, anti slip diff, 3.73, rubi wheel and performance suspension , sirius , side air bags,6speed,

If I was to go with the new dealer I would have to wait another10 weeks

What do you guys think...?

Thanks

There will be a lot of opinions on this one....you can keep running around and try to find a better/ the best deal...in my mind you already have..it is better than the deal I got on my 2012 Sport that was sitting on the lot. But I got what I wanted..when I wanted and for the price I agreed to pay...I could have fought argued and shopped around but felt it was "fair price at the time".

A lot of the time when people go jumping around trying to find the best "deal" they end up getting "burned". Extra costs pop up, original dealer won't have anything to do with them, (service/ recall questions) multiple credit hits not good, etc.

To me If I agree to something order and agree to take said deal it is mine...but that is just me.

If you only went to ONE dealer in the first place, this is your mistake, not theirs. NEXT time you buy something, shop around BEFORE you buy it, not after.

Unless you are willing to alienate the original dealer and have THEM want nothing to do with you, better just but it..... after all.. it is only $750 .... not like it is 5% or something...

Just to give you some numbers to compare, I am in Alberta and bought a 2-Dr Sport last week.

It has all the options of an S (Hard Top,17" alloys, sat radio, connectivity group, minus the A/C (-1125) and Power Group (-1000). But mine is an auto (+1400). The 32" tire and wheel group (-400), side airbags (-400).

The invoice was $26,850 (from CarSaver.ca)

The MSRP was $28885. I got the $2000 consumer cash, plus another $1000 in showroom credit from the dealers loyalty program. So I got $3000 off of the MSRP and paid $25,885, which was $1000 below invoice.

The MSRP on yours should have been about $32K? -3K in my deal would make it $29K. So I'd say $27,900 is a good deal...if my math is right.

So $4700 off of MSRP. That's sounds great, and must be well below invoice.

Good luck.

Ah okay that makes sense.

To others posting prices, myself and the OP are in Canada, so our numbers will be higher, just like everything else.

I just ordered a 4dr Rubicon in Ontario.
I ended up getting a -$2000 jeep incentive and -$1100 discount off of invoice pricing. No admin fees, etc as well.
I'd say you did pretty well for Canada.

I worked at a car dealership for 8 months and my grandfather has been selling cars for over 50 years, and my cousin is a finance manager at the jeep dealership where i bought mine. I can tell you with confidence that you are getting a good deal either way. The more technology you get the more mark up but wranglers have an extremely low mark up compared to the 10 grand off you get when you buy a ford truck. And wranglers keep their value better than any other vehicle, you can't hardly buy them at auction because they go for so much. my jk msrp was around 25,500 and i got it for 22,500 so you are definitely getting a deal my friend. My only advise is make sure you get the color and options you want.

I track every fill up and average $311.90 a month in gas. With an average 2,562 miles per month. 2 drive thew car washes a month and any other cleaning supplies so be sure to add that to the cost of a new jeep as well. I spend close to a mortgage payment a month on my jeep lol.
-JKU Sport bout $28k loan new.

It's not the buy-in price...(Seems about normal BTW) I was ~28ish also. It's the Mods that get you....

It's all the places you go and stuff you do with or to the Jeep. Gas, fluid are some.... but, stuff you upgrade or break in doing the fun stuff. This is where the cost creeps up.

The base price is just that... starting. Its the lets go here now, lets try this, I want better tires, lift.....etc....etc.

Good luck

I know this is an old thread but this type of question makes me wonder what someones word is worth. You make an agreement, you give your word that you are taking the vehicle. Live with it.

I always wonder what someone would be posting if their Jeep came in and they went to pick it up and the dealer said "well the one we ordered for you came in but there was someone here that wanted it and was willing to pay $800 more than you and I agreed on so we sold it to that party".

My word is my bond. If I say stand by it.
