Welcome! Cape Cod here - Barnstable/Sandy Neck area. Currently researching/planning purchase. Been checking out dealers online on the North Shore - any opinions/experiences with dealers in your area?

Hmmm North Shore huh?

Kelley Jeep (Rt. 1 Peabody) has inventory but they are hard nose/pressure sales.

Grava in Medford is a small family business. If you check it out ask for Tom Quinn in sales.

I've heard good things about Lawless in Woburn. Never been though.

I ended up buying from Herb Chambers Jeep in Danvers. Good inventory, Mike Doucet was my sales rep. Great looking service center. Overall good experience, good deal. No pressure sales schpeal.

Thanks for the feedback regarding dealers north of Boston. There are two Jeep dealers on Cape Cod, both with truly frightening online reviews of their service departments, and only one dealer between Cape Cod and Boston. I am really interested in the new Cherokee, but carefully monitoring current owners service issue experiences because I will likely have to travel 1-2 hours to obtain service, if the vehicle needs to be towed under warranty, I assume they'll want to tow it to the nearest dealer, whom according to online reviews tacks a $150 "diagnostic" charge to all repairs, including warranty repairs. What model Cherokee do you have? Any service issues yet?

Funny, I live in Midcoast Maine and was laughing at the self-professed nickname! I'm sure we'll see a lot of tricked out Cherokees from MA this summer

I'm in Boston. Got my latitude at Bay State Jeep in Newton. It's been a great winter to have a Jeep so far.
