It is very difficult for any business to continually stand by such an offer. If a dealer is still offering it then by all means go for it - 8% under invoice is a good no-hassle price.Normally I would agree with you but the forum friendly dealer and his salesman had a conditional, yet flat 8% under invoice pricing for placing an order.
Specifically, 5% was for being a forum member here, 2% for financing thru the dealership and 1% came from tread lightly.
I didn’t see the need to negotiate any further as they took all the hassle, fighting and guess work out of it. For this reason, I strongly encourage anyone seriously wanting to purchase or order new, reach out to a forum friendly dealer thru this site via a PM.
8% under invoice?? OTD - without outrageous fees?* Totally!!! GET it immediately!!!! Anyone who does not do that will have me come and throw some dunce pie at them!!!It is very difficult for any business to continually stand by such an offer.

It's worth the waitI've been researching this evening, looks like there's a forum-friendly dealer in town that's at 7% below invoice for orders with tread lightly. Will probably reach out to them. With that, can get a Rubi with everything I want at the same price of the Saraha @ invoice. (still less than what either of these other dealers want for the 2020 on the lot or the 2021 already ordered). Guess I'll be waiting another 3 months for a wrangler :-D
imo, sell your trade in independently or to carvana. more power to you. Trade ins at dealers will almost never work out to your favor. Go there with cash, or with your own financing. Chances are they will match your financing. And if you do go with cash, dont tell them you are paying cash. Get their financing, with huge interest rates and then just pay off the loan as soon as you can.
Thats what I did. When I took their massive 7% interest rate loan their eyes shined. Gave me a massive discount on my Jeep. Then I just went home and paid off the loan.
"gentleman's agreement" lol. Then why don't they make it clear on their website that you need to finance through them to get their discount....Did this a couple months ago buying a volkswagen for my daughter. They wouldnt match their own internet price (with ZERO disclaimers) unless I financed. Fine, I financed 50% sales manager told me I had to sign agreement to keep the loan 3 months. Got to finance, noticed their was no prepayment penalty and it was "a gentleman's agreement" (Yeah he literally told me that). Bought the car, got my login to finance site a few days later and paid it off.
When you say you got 4% below invoice, was that a cash sale or dealer financing? What was your DOC fee? What other dealer fees did you pay? Did you have a trade-in?My local dealer (not a large volume) gave me 4% below invoice. 51,560 MSRP , 48,860 invoice, 46,865 out the door. Just for a reference from a non volume dealer. Three other dealerships around me were all above invoice in July when I ordered.
