Jeep vehicles

What your take on the Jeep brand of vehicles? We are looking at new vehicles and I am looking at a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Elite. I want a Trailhawk model for the off-road capability around here. Do you know someone that owns a Jeep?

Too small for a growing family (of 4) vehicle IMO. Unless you don't plan on traveling and just stick to the immediate area. Just my two cents. I would opt for something a little more practical for lugging the family around. And before you say you don't want to pay $50K for a vehicle, keep in mind, you don't need the top trim level in every vehicle.

We really liked the vehicle, but the salesman doesn't seem to want to deal. Don't they normally call you and want to make a deal? I have had to call him 3 times now. I asked him to check on something small for me and he said he would call me back and that was 2 days ago. I am on the border of making a deal, but not with service like that. I am now looking at other dealers. I don't get customer service these days, or the lack of.

Yes normally they do call. I like putting a couple dealers against themselves to compete for business.

Since when do you need more than a 4-5 seater for a family of 4? Why doesn't everyone just go back to driving sedan's and pickups can go back to being a 2-3 seater meant solely for work purposes? Maybe you should just get a VW Atlas instead...

They are rated good, but we have no VW dealers around here, and while the quality is suppose to be good (German Engineering), when a parts breaks your going to pay out the ass for a part.

Parts for anything are spendy. You think a Jeep is different? I've never heard of a cheap fix for a Jeep. The 2019 Atlas had a whopping 6-year / 72k bumper to bumper warranty. Their 2020 model will fall to a 4 year, more in line with GMC/Chevy/Ford. I've had a few co-workers / friends do some shopping around of the mid-size SUV ranges. One co-worker just leased a Trailhawk, but he is single, short and just wanted something to get around on winter roads. Another had purchased a trailhawk and returned it within a week.

I'm not saying to buy a Suburban. But after looking at the dimensions of the Trailhawk Elite, (cargo smaller than a Ford Escape), I would forgo some of the limited options that a person doesn't need and use that money to bump up the size to something else.

 

You don't need skid plates for those manicured Montana trails.

We took the Jeep for a test dry last weekend. We both really liked the way it felt etc. Then we test drove the Forester. It was nice as well. Probably swaying towards the Forester. I would prefer the Jeep but the reliability from reading on the internet scares me away.

I don't know what is going on with Jeep vehicles lately. But I looked a couple of weeks ago, and dealers did not have any in stock. Then I read a post yesterday that some people have had models on pre-order since February with no delivery date yet, so they were going to cancel, and someone else replied that theirs has been in the shop for two months waiting on parts. Must be having problem importing parts into the country or something?

Seriously? There is a huge supply shortage with all vehicles right now. Can't get chips for new vehicles, can't get parts. Used vehicles are in high demand, good luck finding one and prices are high. Where have you been?

My sister just traded her Honda straight across for a new one, payments the same etc. she said, is that because used vehicles are worth a lot? Should I look at trading in?

 

Well that's kind of interesting because although trade-ins are fetching higher prices, they increased new vehicle prices as well. Just looking at new F150 prices for example, they really went up from last year. So I would be pretty shocked that a person would be able to trade basically even up on a new one. Maybe they performed a little voodoo with the loan payments?

She said she had about 30k miles on old one, put her in new 2022 model, payments are still the same. You know car dealers, they will extended your payments 100 years if they can get you in a vehicle.

Yup that's what I meant by voodoo. Keep the same payment, just make more of them......

This is kind of crazy, but a guy just left work here about 5 minutes ago, and somehow we started talking about vehicles. He said he has a 2021 Toyota Tundra coming in, and he just took his older Tundra in and they gave him 5k over what he paid for it 6 years ago. he said they were desperate for used trucks, he said he didn't believe them so he pulled up KBB and sure enough it was listed for the price they told him. He said he had it for 6 years and came out 5k richer. Crazy times.

While the world has been dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic, the tech industry, like it, has also been dealt with a huge blow of its own due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage. And perhaps the industry hit hardest as a result of this is the automotive industry.

 

According to an estimate by AlixPartners, a company specializing in business consultancy, the whole of the automobile industry could be losing around $210 billion in revenue this year. This estimated figure has actually been raised by nearly double since May, as earlier it was thought that the lost revenue could be amounting to around $110 billion. Naturally, the number of forgone potential vehicles to be produced has also shot up proportionately as now the firm predicts 7.7 million car units lost whereas back in May, the figure was 3.9 million.
