Did I get a good price?

Hello all,

Well I'm really excited because I bought my first wrangler yesterday. I've wanted one for years but could never find an appropriate time to buy one. I can't wait to take the top off and drive it around when it gets warmer.

Was wondering if you all think I got a good deal. I paid $13,300 and here's what I got:

2004 Wrangler X
54,500 miles
4.0L I6 - Manual
4 brand new tires (looks like they had just been put on)
Soft top
Excellent condition (inside & out) - looks almost new

The deal has already been made but I was wondering how you all thought I did.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

--Steve

Based on what they're selling for in my area, that's a pretty good deal.

Jeeps seem to hold their value really well. That would go for about 16-18k around here.

For what you saying, around here maybe it will be $14k or so.
Also it deppends on many factors & what kind of dealership too.
Did you run the carfax report??

I did run the carfax report and everything looked clean.

I showed the car to one of my co-workers today and he thought it was new. He was shocked when I told him it had 54,000 miles on it. Maybe he was just trying to be nice.

I like good deals i got my 04 rubi auto with dual tops (1615) miles for 19,500, private party but i just dropped another 9200$ into it :-( and im still not done! Sometimes i wish i left her stock! That sounds like a very good deal,it is stick though but some people rather have stick. If i was never to go rock crawling id rather have a stick!
i bought a 99 sahara with hard top and 74K miles for 12500 and sold it for 13500 3 months later with 77K miles. It had black rims and 32 mtrs on a rustys 3in sa lift when i bought it.

It boils down to this, if you got what you wanted, at a price you are happy with, then you got the best deal going! For example, I wouldn't have taken the same Jeep I bought in either Blue or Yellow even if it were $5K cheaper, I still wouldn't have been happy!

Go Buckeyes!

I bought one of my 97TJ's for $3K about 3 years ago, it's an SE 2.5L 5 speed and had 69K on the clock, needed a new top, really needed a new top, no windows in back, but it came with slider side windows. Drove three hours to conn one way on a sunday in january from PA but drove it home, tad on the breezy side though, especially when the sun went down, good heater, sweaty feet and frozen ear lobes.
