I'm in the market for a Steel Blue Compass. I've test driven it twice & I like it. (Even my father likes it). Has anyone been able to negotiate the price, or, is this still truly too new a car for any real haggling?
I am in Canada and paid about $600 over invoice which is below MSRP. I bought Nov 29 and Compass' were in short supply. Jeep Compass with Power Options are hard to comeby and the dealers will not budge easily on pricing. You can get them to about US$ 400 over invoice if they have a few Power Options equipped models on the lot.
I was also very firm in declining all the frills and fancies they try to add on like - etching the glass, providing theft and GAP insurance etc which they portray as almost mandatory.
If the Compass does not have Power options you can negotiate.
I'm new to the site. I'm seriously thinking of buying the Jeep Compass Limited Edition in 4x4 in Jeep Green because I live in Ontario and can have some bad winters. I'm going to test drive one on Tuesday.
I priced one out on the Canadian site and with all the options I wanted, it came to about $29,000 before tax. Also, there is a $1000 off recent graduate program, so that helps a bit for me.
Just wondering if you think there is any room for bargaining, or if I should possibly wait for a demo and save a couple thousand with like just under 10,000km on it.
Also, I was interested in navigation, but at almost $3000, it doesn't seem worth it. Does anyone know if I can put one in aftermarket that will fit properly?
Thanks for all your help guys!! I managed to get $500 over invoice... i think I'll finalize the deal tomorrow I just have to decide on colour... white or green..... im more towards green Oh ya and I also get an additional $500 off for being a recent grad.
I'm getting limited 4x4 with lots of options and was able to bargain... I think they just tell people that so they think they can't bargain....
There is a Jeep dealer called Smith Jeep. I believe its in the state of Washington. They are the largest Jeep dealer in the WORLD! Get the phone # off google and call them for a price then go to or call several jeep dealers. There is about $2,000. on a $23,00O Compass that they can dig into IF the dealer is hungry and sales are not good. Good luck.
