Arizona Jeep Dealers

I am moving to Arizona this month. Before leaving I ordered a jeep through my local dealership and long story short they messed up my whole order and now I am jeepless. I was wondering what are some great jeep dealers in the state thats honest and will give me a great price. I will be living in southern Arizona near Sierra Vista and Tuscon. As soon as I arrive I will be ordering a new jeep...again. Any help would be greatly appreciated guys!

I plan on sticking to my original build plan of:
Granite JKU
3.73
Manual
Premium Soft Top
Connectivity Group

Welcome to Arizona! I am a bit north of you up in Scottsdale (Phoenix) so don't have any good recs for particular dealers down that way, but we seem to have a pretty active contingent here on WF from Tucson that hopefully will chime in.

Make sure you do your homework. If you go into any dealership armed with information and discounts you can get (Tread Lightly membership for one) you can get some good deals. The 2 main Jeep dealers here in Tucson are Jim Click and Larry Miller. Jim Click is a long time car dealer and he sells lots of makes and models across town so Jeeps for hi, is an after thought. Larry Miller bought out a local dealer last year (Tucson Chrysler/Jeep) and I'm glad he did because T C/J had real crappy service. The jurry is still out on how good Larry Miller is but so far not too bad and they seem to be trying hard.

If you are willing to travel, I've heard you might get better deals in the Phoenix area, Specifically in Scottsdale, Mommymallcrawler's neck of the woods. If you want local, I'd go with Larry Miller.

In the Phoenix matro area, finding a dealer you'll be pleased with is a gamble. I refuse to deal with the Van Tuyl auto group, so that leaves out Airpark Jeep. I don't care for mega-dealers and their inflexibility, so I avoided Power/AutoNation/Larry Miller stores. Tex Earnhardt doesn't have a great reputation locally - he turns and burns customers for volume.

I bought mine at Moore, based on my wife's positive experience and once I signed the paperwork, I got treated badly... really badly. I would never recommend Moore for anything.

For warranty work, I have reluctantly used Larry Miller and have been pleasantly surprised. No high pressure, no over promising, no over charges, etc. I may just buy my next vehicle from them, but the only thing that would prevent me from doing so is the municipal sales tax where they are located is one of the highest in Arizona [Surprise, AZ]. Their store in Avondale, AZ has a cheaper tax rate. I don't know the tax rate for Tucson, so it may just be simpler to buy down there.

I don't mind traveling for a better deal. Can you explain to me the tread lightly membership?

I bought used so I couldn't get the new vehicle discount but I caved $100 on my Duratracs with the membership. I suggest you go to the Tread Lightly web site and see what info they have and maybe post in the JK forum area and see what folks have gotten. I think its something like 1% below dearler stock price or something like that.

Had the worst car buying experience of my life at Larry Miller tucson. They had the used vehicle I wanted and ended up getting a deal they didn't want to give me (took 2.5 months), but just continually acted in a shady manner until I got to the finance guy...

Just my experience, but I will not be returning to that dealership... Stinks because click isn't very knowledgeable. Think to get the combo of knowledge and straight forward need to go to airpark in scottsdale, they will make you do the dance too, but I believe them to be the best option in az (granted I don't know some of the details of ownership alluded to above).

I had no issues with Airpark-I live literally right around the corner and bought mine there. The sales guys and finance guys are well sales amd finance guys-so long as you are armed with information, they cant hurt you. You always have the option to walk. So far my limited dealings with their service have been ok too-installing factory steps and oil changes. And they do an annual Jeep run with free food. LOL

Same here, shady dealings @ Larry H Miller in Tucson. Many promises and flat out lies( the salesman even had the gall to tell me that any mods not done there, would void my warranty).
They also seem as if everyone was new at their job and really didn't know what they were doing or talking about.

Moore Jeep in Peoria and Earnhardt both agreed to do 3% under invoice with me when I was looking to build one. I found one on the lot at Moore that had what I wanted so went with that dealership.

I live in Sierra Vista and the local Jeep dealership treats us offroaders pretty good. I don't know about the sales departments but being that it is a military town they seem to be pretty legit in dealing with people. Of course do your research, arm yourself with financing before arriving and all that other good stuff. Good luck.

I had very good luck with larry H Miller. What they told me is that MODS not done there may void the warranty on certain things - not the ENTIRE warranty.

For Example if a aftermarket part was installed incorrectly by someone else and it damages another component - your not covered.

Your salesman probably didnt have his story straight. Knock on wood - all my mods have NOT been done by larry H Miller and they have taken care of an oil sensor under warranty.

My stereo installer broke the vent on the tailgate behind the tire carrier installing the sub box they mounted to the tailgate - Larry H miller replaced it under warranty.

Righ now my jeep is there - went in to Limp mode...transmission is slipping and not shifting out of 4th.....covered under warranty.

I bought my Jeep from them also.

Do you plan to upgrade the tires to a bigger size? If yes maybe get the 4.10 gears.

I ordered my Jeep through Tucson Chrysler Jeep, then while waiting for it to arrive it became Larry H Miller. Personally I found that no dealer in Phoenix even gave a rats a$$ about me.
The experience was good overall. The only issue I had was that the paperwork from TCJ was sent to a remaining group dealer in Avondale to process the paperwork. They were overloaded and my temp tags were expiring and I hadn't received a plate. My paperwork was sitting in a box. Luckily, a nice lady at the Avondale dealership dug through, found it, and had plates to me the next day.

The service manger at Larry H Miller understands the offroad community and has a built jeep himself. So as long as you are not trying to pull the wool over his eyes he'll likely not ding you on warranty work unrelated to mods.

Welcome and good luck finding your jeep.

On the purchase of a new one in the Phoenix area, Auto Nation, and Air Park are very high priced, and just don't want to deal. I tried working with both of them off and on for about a month, but just couldn't get them to come down on pricing, (Air Park was the worst), but it is also located in high rent district!

I got my best deal from Moore, over on west Bell Road. They just blew everybody else away on pricing. I purchased mine at about $5,500 less than MSRP, and that was the OTD (out the door pricing), all other costs included!

We live in Golden Valley, just west of Kingman and we just bought our 1st Jeep, Dune JKU and we bought it at Bill Luke JCD. It is our 1st new vehicle purchase and we felt like we got exactly want we wanted and were able to stay within our budget. We looked online for a year to research and figure out what we wanted and how to get it.
We wanted a new Sport, single digit on odometer, light colored, power group, connectivity group, Max tow, hardtop, auto trans, premium sound and Bluetooth. Lastly, our max budget was $30,000... With a 2003 Ford f-150 with 160,000+ miles for trade-in... Paid $29,890.
In 3 weeks we have put 1300 miles on it, 100 miles off-road, only mod we have done is 2" wheel spacers, for looks, completely stock otherwise, for now. Bill Luke is who we recommend. And our salesman explained the Jeep Wave! :: wave ::
