Trading in a 2022 Jeep Wagoneer Series 2 . 3rd parties are low balling the trade. These people giving me 59k which will still have me owing a little under 12k for it since it’s being rolled into the new one.
Yea those numbers are rough. Idk how to get them better.
It’s a lemon. They won’t do the buyout. Been in the dealer for the past 3 months on and off up to 3 weeks even. Just got it last October. It’s left me dead 3 times. Not to mention all the other mechanical issues.
As someone who has had lemons - what have you done to get compensated from Jeep? Have you contacted them? Not the dealer but Jeep corporate, what have they said? In my state, if you can’t drive for 30 days it’s a lemon. I had one like that recently got full refund. Take care of that car separately.
Next let’s talk about this deal. Unless you’re just rolling in money, paying around 1K/Month (after removing bad equity) for a GCL for 48 seems like a terrible waste of money. Doesn’t make sense. Do a little research on that car, I’ve seen better deals posted here. Or look at another. I test drove the GCL and went with a super cheap pathfinder instead, I liked it better (YMV).
I don’t mean to be harsh but before you financially commit yourself into this bad situation there are much better ways forward.
If you believe the vehicle is a lemon and the dealer or manufacturer isn’t helping, why would you lease the brand again? If I took a $12k loss, I certainly wouldn’t give that $12k to the people I felt caused it.
You have a choice and the best choice is consulting a lemon law attorney for free.
