Jeep Buying

A Jeep is pretty much green-lit now. Just gotta nail that pricing.

I test drove a JK and a JL. The JK was a used 2018 with 18,000 miles (30,000km) for $25,000CAD. It showed signs of abuse and had 2 owners already.  I knocked them down to $23,000 but....ehh.  Maybe for $20-21.

The JL was brand new and was $31,000CAD and a pleasure to drive. Also a manual. The dealer was kinda icky, so I bounced. Not wishing to talk straight up on pricing but wanting very much to talk about free BBQs and shit like that.

I think, with current incentives and financing, a new JL looks quite competitive, even at such a significant price delta. JL will have higher resale and drives better. Plus has modern stuff like a backup cam and android auto.

Also, they offered me $8500 for the Kia.  Which is $1500 less than I paid two years and 20,000km ago, but I kinda wanted higher.
