Good time to buy?
Hey, everyone, I've been cruising this forum a lot lately, because I've been obsessing over finally getting a Wrangler. Always loved the little beasts, and after switching from a Cherokee as my daily driver to an Acura TSX, I'm starting to lust after the 4-door Sahara. There's a lot of things I'll miss about the TSX, but my eye starts to wander every time I have to struggle to fit something in the trunk or swap out for the Cherokee to tow something (still hanging around seeing light usage at my mom's place in Jersey).
My question is this: has anyone seen any good deals from Jeep dealers trying to unload them? I've heard Chrysler's sales are down across the board, and I imagine gas prices can't be helping the Jeep line. I'm also wondering what the status is on the '09s... I'd imagine the prices on the '08s will go south a little once they '09 is on the lot, but is there anything that'd be a must-have in the '09 trim?
I've got a year left on my TSX lease (ugh, will finance next time), but I might talk to the huge all-brand dealer up here about an early buyout if possible and they can put together an attractive deal on a Wrangler.
Anyway, apologies for the long post, but I guess I had a lot to say. Looking forward to hearing what you all think.... Thanks!
