New (potential) Jeep owner from Indiana, I have some value questions...

Hello! I am looking to replace my current Mazda 3 with something a little more fun. I looked at a TJ Rubicon at a local dealer the other day, and loved it. Unfortunately, I think the dealer has it way overpriced.

The Jeep has 10300 miles and is an 04. It has some minor cosmetic issues that would slightly devalue the car, but its a Jeep, so I would say it is to be expected. My major issue is that it has 4 previous owners. Kinda make you wonder why none of the owners kept it very long...

Anyways, they have it listed at 15,500. The book value averages to be about 13,200 through KBB, Edmund's, and NADA. I have talked the dealer down to 13,755 plus tax and fees.

What do you guys think? Is that a good price for a ten year old TJ Rubicon? If so, I can't believe how well these hold their values.

-PS: Thanks for having me here!

Figured there would be a better location, but I didn't want to be that new guy who posts a bunch of BS on their first day.
