Is this a good deal or can dealer wiggle a little more?
 
Special ordering a 2013 Unlimited Rubicon with following options...

Hardtop
Automatic transmission
Tow package
4.10 gears
Connectivity Group

MSRP is $38,390

I've been quoted $34,390 plus tax title license.

I feel like I could get them to $34,000 or get something else thrown in.

Thoughts?

Thanks

looks descent. But never hurts to push a tad bit more. The dealer we bought from had a 'spin a wheel for a deal' after you bought a vehicle from them. most prizes on this wheel were lower budget items/services. But one was $500 off your deal. So I told them if they'ed through that in as our spin, we'd sign on the dotted line. They agreed but still had to have us spin.. amazing what some added weight on the opposite side of the wheel will do for your luck at hitting the $500 prize :rofl:.

I'd push a little and if they say no, walk out; chances are they'll call you shortly agreeing to the deal.

i'd say you are WELL below invoice at $34,390. I didn't take time to run the numbers but my gut /experience tells me your invoice is right around $36,000... so you're at about 4-5% under invoice...that is an area few get to....
and i'm sorry but you're pondering over $390 ? ? Dude, thats like $7 a month...... you can move more then that by having your interest rate shift a fraction of a point...and you wouldn't even know it.
Honestly, if you are like 99% of us, the finance guy is gonna walk up and say "hey i got you 3.1%" and you're gonna say "OK". . . or is he gonna say 3.3%, and guess what...there went you $390

JUST GO GET IT.! ! ! !

ask him to throw in some oil changes if thats something that interests you.

Check out the invoice pricing on Edmunds.com, Kelly Blue Book and NADA car pricing guides. -- all free on line. If the price with accessories is at or below invoice, then you are getting a decent deal Take whatever price you then get from that dealer, again at or below the invoice level, and then go to other Jeep dealers in the area and see how much they are willing to beat that price by. Also, dealer processing fees, which here in Virginia are as high as $ 500, are also often negotiable. In neighboring Maryland, the fees are capped at $200. So, bottom line is to shop around. Sounds like you are being appropriately cautious. Good luck.

What's the invoice price on that? You can find it by going to someplace such as cars.com or Edmunds.com and build it. It shows you the MSRP and the invoice at the end. Then use 1% below invoice as a starting point in the negotiations and try to go down from there.

Be careful if you negotiate a good deal and you have something to trade. They'll probably try to make up the difference there.

Can I add something... maybe save you a little more. I'm not still sure if this is true.

The Max Tow packages price seems inflated for what you get. When I ordered mine with intent to tow stuff sometime, the dealer told me that the springs in the rear are much better equipped. Also included with the hitch.
However, browsing through the forums has made me come to a conclusion that you can buy an aftermarket one for ~$100 compared to what.. $350 factory?

Anyway, please confirm this though or veteran members can chime in.

Invoice is $36,061. I'm waiting to hear back the Internet Sales guy on my cost breakdown because he said out the door I will be at $35,759.70. That includes North Carolina 3% highway tax, then title , reg, but I want to see the breakdown for doc fee, etc.

According to TrueCar.com, that's a spectacular price:

Just ordered the Jeep!
My breakdown with tow, 4.10, hardtop, connectivity group and auto transmission.
$33,890 Jeep
$599 doc fee....would not budge
$1,019...state and local tax
$254...license fees

$35,759.79 total to my door step, as they are delivering it from Georgia to North Carolina.

Up Hill Bill 05-11-2013 05:39 PM

That's a real bragging-rights price!

Congrats on the new Rubi!

sparsons79 05-11-2013 05:44 PM

Thanks! I'm glad the wife talked md I to a 4 door as well.

Went with White even though I really liked Dune, but couldn't find one close enough to me to view in person.
