2006 Vehicle Closeout Deals

lots of advertising going on for "employee pricing" and 0% financing for 72month deals from Ford, Chevy & Chrysler/Jeep...

love to get into a Jeep Commander or Jeep Liberty...liking the 5500lb towing capacity of the Jeep Liberty Diesel with 26mpg...

anyone know of any good sites to compare what dealer costs really are as well as where to find best financing deals???

Thinking about pulling with the Liberty would be great, stopping with it may be a different story... How much do they weigh?

liking the price and size of the commander...plenty of room for at least one childseat and the grandparents, 4.7L v8 has decent fuel mileage 12-18mpg in the city, and between 16 and 22 mpg on the highway...same price point as the cherokee but so much more room with the rear seats...

If You Would Like A Commander, Maybe We Could Work Something Out About Getting You One To New Hampshire. Or Maybe You Could Just Come And Visit Me In Kansas. We Have About 25 In Stock Right Now With Employee Pricing.

Not too knock the Commander but that back seat is almost useless IMO. And I thought that thing was supposed to resemble the old "Woody's" To me they really dont seem much bigger than a Cherokee.

the son of a friend is a salesman at a local jeep, says they are practically giving away the "loaded" models...selling for less than used ones...

any recommended tips, PM me...

any suggestions on what to look for...trust this kid, but in looking for a decent tow vehicle (horse/livestock trailer, boat trailer and landscape trailer on occasion) but better yet comfort level for child seats and gear...

Consider the 5.7, look at the mpgs across the board, when towing with the little motor, anything you saved with the 4.7will have gone out the window. IMO..... I am sorry I did not get the 5.7
