    I would stay as far away from the Roseville Automall Jeep dealership as you can. Can't speak to their service staff but their sales staff would rather be playing Tetris than helping customers. Additionally, they have zero inventory on their site and have to drive you to other offsite parking areas to see vehicles. Just bad experiences at that place and nothing else, hopefully others have had better times there.

    I bought mine at the Folsom dealership off 50 and they had a huge inventory of 4dr JLURs to choose from. No joke, 15-20 and those were loaded 4dr Rubi's. I got a great deal, no hassle, was in and out in 90 minutes.

    My experience back in December was the exact opposite Folsom didn't have anything and Roseville did. I know they keep their stuff a lot of it offsite I just called in advance I told them what I was looking for and to have it on the premises which they did. When I got there they had 3 jeeps waiting for me and I got my Sahara at a great price

    I live in El Dorado Hills and will never set foot in the Folsom Jeep dealership again. Will be taking my JL to Placerville instead.

    Went to Thompson's Jeep in Placerville for an oil change and to get my track bar replaced. What a great dealership! friendly, clean, prompt. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

    All of the Bay Area dealers are a pain in the ass to deal with. I purchased a 2019 Rebel from South County last year and pretty much had to twist their arm the entire way. Not on price...just to actually call me and sell me a truck. It was bizarre. But they have the best price for on-lot vehicles.

    Anyway, this year when shopping for a JLUR, I of course checked them out and they are at $6,000 'dealer discount' on the stickers which works out to right at about 6% below invoice. They didn't have what I wanted though this time around and said for a factory order they do $2500 less DD and that ($3500) works out to about 1% below invoice.

    So it was shopping time. That is about when I found this site.

    Did the reading and ended up getting a quote from Dennis Dixon in ID for 7% under invoice as expected. Just couldn't pull the trigger on the drive back over the mountain in the snow armed with only my wife and carry on luggage. I think there was 6% available down in LA...but lol LA. Not happening.

    But armed with the knowledge and quote for 7% made the cold calling a lot easier....and still none of the South Bay dealers would come close to matching it.

    Ended up talking to Brandon at Auburn Jeep (cold call prior to seeing above post). Cool guy and super easy to work with. Said best he could do was 4.5% under invoice which works out to about $5,300 under sticker MSRP. Close enough to the 'Dealer Discount' for an on-lot at South County for me, so I ordered.

    Ended up at about a $1200 premium over taking the flight to Boise. Knowing myself I would have done it on a weekday too, so would have cost a PTO day as well (internal justification) :)

    Stevens Creek ended up calling me back after I had reached out to the locals I had previously received quotes from and where willing to match it, but not beat it. Very nice of them to be willing to grab that sale with no work at the cost of others who did the leg work. So nice. I politely declined. lol. (actually, I did, I go there for service, haha)

    So anyway, if in the market, especially if factory ordering, either go to Idaho for the deal, or get a quote from them prior to shopping. Build a spreadsheet from the Ordering Guide and include the FWP pricing and % targets. Show them the 7% you have already and let them know you will accept less for convenience (if you will).

    I believe they changed the law on tax rate..it use to be you could go to another county where taxes are less and save the difference...like LA county is over 10% but Ventura County is like 7.5%...somebody on here might have more recent knowledge..but here is the 2020 tax rate by county and city. If they did change the tax rate then make sure you are taxed (sales tax) accordingly. https://www.cdtfa.ca.gov/formspubs/cdtfa95.pdf

    I'm pretty sure California has been like this for several years (since 2017, maybe more.) When buying a vehicle the tax rate is charged by your home/registration address, not the purchase location.

    BTW, I second all the opinions on Auburn Jeep. We've purchased both our Ram and Jeep there. It's about a 40 minute drive for us, but having they are one of the few dealers that put a real price on the web site.

    Steer clear of the dealership in Davis, Hanlees Jeep. I called looking for information and they only emailed me about one Jeep they had on the lot, with all the dealer addons (+$10,000) and wouldn't answer my direct questions.

    I thought I had posted here already. I got mine at auburn. They were pretty easy to work with and made for an easy transaction. It was a good, no pressure deal.
