Custom ordered a 2015 Jeep GC Overland diesel via the Costco purchasing program. $1300 under invoice + a $200 (max) gift certificate for aftermarket accessories since I'm an executive member. Highly recommended for ease of purchase.

I have used Costco before for other autos and the dealer told us Costco gets the best pricing for autos compared to the other buying services.

Post your experience with the 2015, particularly if you have issues. Seems the 2014 have a few. Still on side lines.

Hello Hayasa. I have been trying to order a 2015 diesel Grand Cherokee diesel Overland model. I have an order in, but they have now postponed the possible build date until sometime in November due to lack of diesel engines. I tried pricing through several channels, including Consumer Reports, Car Connection, and a locally-based service, CarTelligent. The best pricing I have been able to get is at the dealer invoice, certainly not $1300 under! I would like to do better. I am in the San Francisco Bay Area, and wonder where in the country you are located, or even the dealer you worked with, if you don't mind providing some of that information. Also, what have you heard about when your new GC will be built? Thanks for your reply.

I'm in the Los Angeles area. For the Costco discount, you have to start by filling out an online request via their website. (Don't want to give free advertising by linking, but a Google search can find it.) They then assign a dealer to you. In my case, the dealer I was initially assigned was pulling all sorts of tricks on me including BS like the Costco discount does not apply to car orders. They were also refusing to give me the Costco price and kept adjusting their price when we complained.

We re-contacted Costco and they "took it for action" so to speak, and assigned us a new dealership. We went there and filled out the paperwork (still no build date, BTW.) Everything is all spelled out for a legit Costco-participating dealer. We could have been in and out in 15 minutes (took a bit of time for the dealer to punch in all my details), but we ended up spending an hour or so exploring their Jeep demos, the "Italian coffee bar" filled with rows upon rows of FIATs (and coffee), and the "Hall of SRT" which was AWESOME. Almost changed my mind at the last minute and bought a Viper, but the evil stares of my wife killed that idea.

I asked the dealer if the Costco stuff was worth their time since their profit was pretty small. Their response surprised me - they said that yeah they might be able to eek out another grand or so after 4 hours of negotiations, but in that time they could service a bunch of Costco customers like me. No stress for either party, super efficient, and it helps the dealership up the raw number of cars out the door. They happen to be one of the few dealers who can sell the Charger/Challenger Hellcats, but they unfortunately won't be at the Costco price. :)

Have 21K miles on my 2014. Love this beast. I use it for local and x-country driving and lots of towing. Fuel consumption is incredible and so far no issues. Some minor software bugs which were fixed with flashes when I had the dealer change the oil. Jeep hit the nail on the head with this one. Feel free to PM if you have any questions.

Well, got an email from my dealer who said my Ecodiesel was set for completion on Nov 20, with a delivery date around Thanksgiving. Whether or not this is true remains to be seen. However, once delivered, I'll let everyone know if they have made any changes to fix the design flaws of the 2014 Frail-Rated versions.

I just heard from my car buying service (CarTelligent) that my 2015 diesel GC Overland has been built and will ship on Nov. 15. Hope it's got all the features I ordered. Hope it works! Wish I'd checked out the Costco option earlier.
