Does choice of vehicle have anything to do with it? Jeep Cherokee is popular vs Dodge Journey is not so are they more willing to entice more risky customer with a lower rate in one vs another to move metal. Actually my Journey has been reliable with a whopping 380 bucks in actual repairs in 4 years. So.much for consumer reports.

If a vehicle had a larger cash incentive than another similarly priced vehicle, then naturally the ultimate LTV should be less, and should result in a more favorable call.

It is rarely wise to put much stock in CR ratings...they are based largely upon the squeaky wheel.  Those WITH issues will whine a lot while those who are happy with the car tend not to be vested in returning surveys.  Further, remember that CR has also been known to downgrade the vehicles like Mustangs, Camaros and Corvettes through the years because they weren't fuel efficient...never mind that the buyers of those sorts of vehicles tend not to give two hoots about fuel mileage. 

 

If a specific dealership has more of a model in their inventory sucking up various funds from the ownership group, then yeah, you could expect them to be more motivated to try and make a deal work.  If the vehicle, on the other hand, is flying off of the delivery trucks, then they don't have to cater to the sub-prime consumer...

Did one last ditch effort before I give it a rest for a few months which I am going to do. Contacted dealer where I purchased the car, told me a vehicle such as a Grand Cherokee base model would work better as far int rate goes due to my  negative equity and payment would be much less.  Bigger issue is LTV on car looking to purchase rather than my credit.

Either way you end with more. Maybe one vehicle holds value better so you are not as buried. 

Not really. No vehicle holds their value. Oh the devaluation curve might be steeper on some cars vehicles than others but there still is quite a devaluation curve on all vehicles, excepting classics and exotics.

A few things to remember about a 'base' model...1) you have to live with it for several years, so if it lacks things that WOULD have been on a better equipped model, you will regret the purchase, 2) future purchasers typically prefer those options that are not on the base model and 3) I would guess that trade on a base-level fleetmobile will really suck (it almost always has in the past). 

 

The dealer is going to make you a sweet deal on that base model because nobody ELSE wants it...meanwhile, it sits and sucks up floorplan funds. 

 

Oh, and do you REALLY want to be sucked into FCA for the next four years (because nobody would really want to finance longer than that if they have a choice).
