Merlin75 so at 10:30am I talked with the sales guy and he told me the Jeep went to get emissions done and whatnot and it'd be available "early afternoon" .. it's now 3:30pm and I haven't heard anything despite attempted contact at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.... *anxious*

Thanks for all the input, I do agree it sounds decent I just haven't bought a vehicle in 15 years and never from a dealer of any kind
(ok that's not true, my last truck went through a dealer but I know the prev owner and what he got in trade so there was no haggling or test dive)
Ya, I have not used it, it's build in with the standard cd player and I think it's stock with the rubicon. Nav would be an option.

There's a contact form on the jeep site, just ask for it with your full VIN, they should email it to you in 24-48 hours

Also I suggest making an owner profile and adding your VIN so you can see service records.

That seems like a decent price.

It's hard to say--I would not pay what it's valued at. Maybe a few thousand less ??
26,998 is asking. It's with Carmax and I'm pretty sure they don't wiggle at all but if it indeed is missing Bluetooth they said it had it so maybe I can get something dropped.

Merlin75 Got my hands on the build sheet!!!!
This seems to sat no Bluetooth (don't see connectivity group) am I wrong?
And I think I only see two skid plates on the sheet, I remember seeing there's supposed to be three?
Only has the hard top now even though sheet states dual top...
That said, this with 35k what's it worth? Kbb says 32k, edmunds says 30... Thanks!

Also, that extended warranty quote from Carmax doesn't seem too bad. Since you will still be under the factory warranty till 36K miles, and under 36mos old, you can still pickup the Chrysler extended warranty from online or just about any dealer. Shop around.
Yes..

I picked up the extended warranty for my 07 from Chryslers. Good or bad I don't no yet. You can look into EW's more if you like--there not for everybody. Argue the price, don't let them overcharge you. I got mine for around $1700, originally wanted to charge $2200 financed in with loan. Even you don't file a claim--it is refundable or transferable to the next owner for $150. Was told a great selling point but not too sure bout that

The dealership I bought from said I could take it for the night and bring back the next day and that is what you want

I'm gettin kinda excited! But anxious and nervous at the same time.. I haven't EVER spent this much money on a single item in my life!

Awesome, congrats

"highway miles" which means it was a street queen. Good for a off road vehicle. Unless he took daily trips to the Moab

I realized you did check out the Carfax in your first post

Post pics when you get her home

kjeeper10 How bought Car fax?
Not all info sometimes but it's worth a look.

Mine did show periodic state inspections and dealer services records. Went in for the Fender snip (recall I think for brake lines) and shifter boot (TSB) along with the right wheel bearing or something like that replaced. Also all the dealer oil changes.
10-05-2011 07:32 PM
NMRubicon All I can say is........Congratulations!! I bought a used 2010 in July, only had 1900 miles on it, sold in May of 2011, traded in the end of June 2011. I love my Jeep!
