Forgive me if this has been hashed around to death but…

I stopped by one of my local Central Florida Jeep dealerships to see if they had a 4xe for test drive. Nope. They had four recently but sold them almost as quick as they came in. They had another that they swapped with another dealer in the area, who said they would bump up the deal by 15k because they could sell it for at least that much. (That might just be some BS the sales guy told me)

I was hoping based on the order-to-delivery times I had seen recently that maybe the parts shortage wasn’t affecting the 4xe as much, but I guess it is.

Is this what everyone else is experiencing? I’d really like to test drive one before I commit to ordering one.

What dealer did you go to?

I'm out of town right now, but if you fancy a little drive up to the DeLand area next weekend I can show you mine.

Vehicle inventory for all brands is pretty lean these days. Not much of a buyers market

I've seen at least 2 dealers with them in the course of the last few weeks so they are out there. First dealer had 2 of them and they weren't sold at the time. Second dealer had one, not sure but I don't think it was a customer's order either.

I'd give the name of the dealers, but since it was over a week ago I'm sure the info would be out of date.

Advantage in Mount Dora. Supposedly Napleton has one but I haven’t called yet.

I might have to take you up on that! I’m actually just over in Leesburg.

Isn’t Advantage the dealer with the $3,000 clear coat and the $30,000 markup on a Wrangler 392?

Seems like “Advantage” is short for Taking Advantage.

That’s actually a sticker from Central Florida Chrysler Jeep Dodge. The last sales manager I spoke to there was an A$$hole.
They have a fancy multi-story dealership on an expensive corner to pay for…

Advantage in Mount Dora did have an SRT Hellcat Durango on the floor though. For $115k.

I realize this is a free market, but adding markups is not a way to earn trust.

I would go elsewhere.
