Fair Price?

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum, so please excuse the typical newbie question.

I've wanted a Wrangler since high school; and now ten years later I'm finally searching for one to buy. I found one I really like: '04, fire-engine red, Sport model, 20K miles, hard top, FLAWLESS exterior/interior, one previous owner, clean title throughout, no mods whatsoever (yet!). Test drove it this afternoon and it drives just like I thought a Wrangler would! After about an hour at the dealership the sales manager made a final offer of $16K before he got angry and kicked me out of the lot. Do you think this is a fair price? Please keep in mind I'm from NYC and everything out here seems to cost more.

Thanks!

i think its a little hight atleast around here he would be around 1500 to high plus you are going to have to pay taxes and lot fees try to find a nice used one from an individual you can save alot of money probably at least 2500 less than a dealer

He got angry and kicked you off the lot?

How did he get to be a sales manager?

Keep lookin, but don't ever go back there!

No, no... I exaggerated a bit, I was more aggressive than he was. He was actually pretty nice. He simply told me 16 was the absolute lowest he'd go

16 is def. top dollar!!!! 20k is low, but that Jeep is now 5 years old. Id say 13,500-14,000 would more reasonable. Plenty of fish in the sea, don't settle. I was in the same situation 5 years ago when i bought mine: almost settled for a red sport for 14,000. Then my black sahara (my dream Jeep)fell into my lap!!

Print out the Kelly Blue Book page for that Jeep and offer him a firm $14,000. If he doesn't want to take that wish him the best of luck selling it and keep looking. The $14K is a Private party Price which should leave him a decent profit margin of about $2K if he only put the trade in value into it.

Regards,
Richard

The Jeep dealership here just sold a 04 Sport , hardtop, Automatic, 4.0, AC, 34,000 miles, for $12500. I think the dealership your lookin at is to high. You can find a better price else where.
