The Tesla is a really cool and different concept, which is what intrigues me most about it. It really is very different from any other car on the road.

I figured that my constant whining and lack of resolution would drive most people away, and it appeared that way given the lack of responses at times.

I'm glad that a few people are still interested.

Hopefully this whole thing blows over soon and this thread can go back to being fun.

While I would never want to be one of those on 'Buzzard's Roost', just watching for the blood, I truly hope this can evolve positively for YOUR sanity and future enjoyment of your GC!

I just like checking in to see what the next problem you encounter is, you seem cursed. I also get a good chuckle out of the bragging about what car to buy next for your 17 year old.. really...............

Isn't it fun? It's kind of like a game, wondering what will go wrong next. If you thought the Jeep is bad, you might die if you heard about my house...

Sorry that you are interpreting it that way. It is definitely not HIS car, it is MINE. Let me make that clear. He only drives it sometimes because it saves him and his brothers a ton of time in the morning going to school, and he behaves very well and maintains great grades and fantastic test scores. If any of that changes, he won't be driving the Jeep, or anything, anymore. He is also not the only one driving the Jeep. However, because he does drive it, I have to get a car that would be suitable for him to drive.

As soon as he goes to college, he will be getting an old Jeep Cherokee off of eBay for a few thousand bucks, and he will pay for some of it. He doesn't have one now because it wouldn't make sense to buy a fourth car if we only use three at one time, and I wanted a Jeep as a third car. Also, I might not have even bought a third car if I didn't want one for myself, as I don't feel comfortable having my unexperienced teenage son drive his two brothers for 35 miles every day in a POS old car.

To sum it up, it is mine, not his, and I bought it for myself. He only drives it sometimes, if I let him. Also, the cars I was looking at are ones that I would buy for a third car even if I didn't have kids. Why wouldn't I just buy a Corvette or a Wrangler? I like the JGC just as much, and I might as well get something that I would still feel comfortable with him driving occasionally if they all appeal equally to me.

Hopefully that clears things up for everybody.

P.S.- The picture in your signature is really cool. Where was that?

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland- Granite

Does anybody know a good place around DC to get Jeeps wrapped? I am thinking of getting it wrapped in Orange.

No, I am not joking. I am going all out Trailhawk.

In all honesty, I have a bet that UVA won't win the national title. If they do, I have to get the Jeep wrapped in UVA orange and keep it that way for a period of time. I just wanted to see the reaction I would get with the Trailhawk thing, and you didn't disappoint.

Thanks for the laugh, hope I managed to return the favor for a few of you.

Well there was some legitimate concern given the issues with the Jeep that you might finally just pop one day

I more or less had a mental image of some guy walking into a custom shop giggling and saying "orange. I want it to be ORANGE!" Maniacal grin and facial twitch included

Not as safe as the other guy's. If Stanford made it to the Final Four he had to get his wrapped in red with a matte green roof.
