I do know that Sahara does advertise no market adjustments or addendums, so that would sense on the sticker pricing.

I would say that on any purchase it will require a little shopping around. A car dealer is a car dealer is a car dealer, they aren't in business to give cars away without making some money.

County98 I've heard good things about Adam's, but unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) it's a 2013 with only 6500 miles or so. Warranty work for me, or I'd probably tackle it myself.

Just can't stand the dealers here I've dealt with. Sigh. I just KNOW I'll be there all day, and be irritated. Makes me sad I have to feel that way about service.

rockey8279 03 4.0 automatic. I searched every dealership in the valley. This one has leather interior which I found odd, but its nice. Paid $8000 for it. A week later, I installed a 2.5 lift, rims, and tires. The next week, I intalled all new stereo and speakers. Next is exhaust and intake. I just cant leave anything stock...lol

You can look back at posts on this thread and get a pretty good idea. My gist is that Chapman Henderson is less bad than the rest.

Even with them, and for sure all the others, the tip seems to be to use some kind of buying service. I forget the name that kept coming up - something Jeep related, like a club or something. Though maybe not strictly a buying service, I think Consumer's Reports is good for buying a Jeep off the lot. They know about the dealer incentives and such that you really know where you stand when making an offer, including a few hundred$ margin for the dealer. Yeah, you have to join Consumer's Union or something, but what's $78 or whatever when you're talking about saving hundred$ or thousand$ on a $30k purchase?

I'm not sure how well Consumer's Reports works for ordering from the factory. I used AAA or Costco and went to Chapman Sahara. The deal was straightforward with no hassles (except the alarm installer, Karr, treated me like dirt). I'm not sure I got the absolutely best price ever, but I got exactly the Jeep I wanted with confidence I wasn't getting raked.

Now, if your purchase is going to be the start of a relationship, I have to warn you away from Chapman Sahara because of their bad service administration. But if you're just looking for the best purchase price, use a service and find a dealer that will honor it.

The most important thing is to know the difference between Chapman Sahara and Chapman Henderson when it comes to after-sales service.

Willson Speaking of Chapman those asses put some aftermarket wheel package on my jeep after I told them not to. Long story short they said they weren't in the computer so drive off with them, there yours. Taking the bite of the hook I spend the next few weeks getting bombarded with phone calls and threats! Needless to say I returned them and got a better wheel package from discount tire. Woot! I should add this is not the one in Henderson I'm talking about, but the one on Sahara.

rockey8279 I went to Chapman about a month ago. I stood next to a jeep I wanted to look at and nobody wanted to help me. Finally , a girl walked up to me and asked if ive been helped. I told her "no" and she asked 3 guys walking out if they could help me. They all said "nope, we're out of here". Thats when I left. About 2 years ago, I was trying to trade in my Nissan Titan for a Miustang Mach 1. They offered me $7000 for my Titan. I told them my truck low blue booked for $14000 (my truck was flawless), they told me that the're not here to help me but to make money and pay their electical bill. That day, I went to Findlay Acura and got $14000 for my titan for a Mustang. I would never do business with Chapman.

I'll never go back to chapman or prestige

Mopar Man Thanks Xodus,

We try to be as upfront and honest as possible here at Chapman Jeep in HENDERSON! As it is imposible to make everyone happy in all circumstances, we all know that it is not possible. What I do is try to make the best out of every situation. I know you through the WarMachines702 club but I don't think we have met in person. Next time you are in the area look me up. I would love to put a face with the name.

Xodius I actually thought of this post last weekend. I drove by that junk dealership last weekend and saw the gecko there. It was up for sale and 39k, this is the one with the gecko rock rings.

I do not have any animosity towards prestige other than that they screw people and lie but with that said, they are a dealership.

Of all the dealerships that I have dealt with only two stand out to me as good. One is back in Milwaukee and the other is Chapman. I have probably talked to the guys at Chapman before but I do not think they ever knew it was me. Although in hind sight they might now. I only had that one issue and I am sure it was just some guy screwing around and even though I wasn't happy about it there was no harm done.

I am a very satisfied customer and will always come back for my service and for other Wranglers in the future since I'm a Jeep guy now that I own one. Good luck with your purchase and ill see you on the road.



So because I like to beat a dead horse... I came across some stuff today that made me remember this post. While I can say that Bmoney here did not lie... If what I think happened, he did not disclose everything either. I am not saying that he did not buy a Jeep from prestige or that they did not give him a good deal. I honestly believe that he got a great deal on his wrangler!!!

I have come to the conclusion that Bmoney is actually Prestige's finance manger Brian Castaneda ( Prestige Chrysler Jeep Dodge | New Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram dealership in Las Vegas, NV 89149 ). Which would fully mean that Prestige was up to their usual shady stuff in this thread.

I am not saying that this is 100% true, but I am convinced of it. I know that there must be 100's of gecko green wrangler unlimited's with Rubicon take off wheels in the valley . This is proven in both his avatar and his Bio on the prestige page. But then you look at the user name Bmoney... Brian in finance . Then you consider that this guy has only made 2 post so far with both of them being in this thread .

Just seems a little too shady for my liking!!

And the icing on the cake is... I just got to use some smiley faces finally.
