I'm thinking maybe they offer referral cash, if so and if I buy there I wouldn't hesitate to say you referred.

Still looking though, may get in that D.C. buy though since it seems like a great deal.

I dealt with Dan Wooly. I didn't push price, went with the 1% affiliate pricing. I traded an 11 MDX. My out the door price including tax & tags was a few dollars over $48, 000. I'm in NY right now so can't put my hands on the paper work. They arranged a 1.6% loan through Sun Trust for three years.

Re: Maximum Steel Overland 4x4

First leg of first trip was just under 200 miles. I drove mostly in D, eco mode on. Mileage was averaging right at 22 until I hit construction approaching Staten Island. Overall the mileage wound up being 21.4

While driving through a stretch of rough road a very bad rattle started and just wouldn't quit. It sounded like glass rattling and even the slightest bump would set it off. Very depressing.

Then I remembered a similar problem with my '07 Liberty. It wasn't as loud, but for months nobody could pin point it. Until one very sunny day when I took my sun glasses out of the overhead console. So, even though it was cloudy today, with my fingers crossed, I grabbed my sun glasses ... and no more rattle.

I decided to follow the directions of the nice lady residing in my dashboard. She kept going on and on about traffic jambs and had me taking roads I have never been on before. I made the trip in (for me) record time.

So far I'd say the ride is stiffer than my MDX, but very much to my liking. The seats are a bit stiff, but once I removed my wallet they were comfortable. The cabin is much quieter than the MDX. I wasn't pushing it, but at one point while passing a truck I found I had gone from 60 to over 80 in a heart beat. No fuss, no muss.

Today I am a happy camper.

Re: Maximum Steel Overland 4x4

Great looking Jeep! I will be ordering in the next few weeks, and am deciding between the Overland MS/Indigo combination and the Summit Granite/Brown combination. After seeing pics of both, looks like I can't go wrong either way!

Re: Maximum Steel Overland 4x4

My Jeep got me home safe and sound, yesterday afternoon. The entire trip was over 600 mostly comfortable miles leaving the Jeep with slightly over 1000 now. The seat bolsters (?) could be a little softer. Skinny people wouldn't notice this. In time they probably will conform a bit.

As posted in the mileage thread, just over 22 overall. The Jeep ran flawlessly. Once I was back on side streets near home I noticed (as the owners manual pointed out) that the transmission was shifting through the lower gears much more smoothly.

While I still think it sucks that they put such a small map in the bigger screen, the directions to all four of my stops were perfect, even getting me into correct lanes way ahead of time and avoiding traffic jambs. The only glitch in the whole system was the volume from the guidance system (the lady in the dashboard) got too loud and too soft on a couple of occasions. I'm not sure if it was after making stops, or after adjusting the radio volume using the dial instead of the steering wheel controls. Once I found the right buttons to press to adjust it, it was annoying but not a major problem.

Jeep did a great job of noise control in the cabin. With my MDX the traffic noise, especially when passing big trucks, was a constant thorn in my side. In the Jeep, you know they are there, but they don't interfere with the music. Very little road noise reached the cabin , confirming that the tires are not designed for off road . Life is a compromise.

In bright sun I can still see a trace of the paint repair on the bumper. I may have the shop try to buff it out a little more, but it's not bad enough that I want them to pull the bumper and repaint it.

At the end of the trip I have no regrets with this purchase.
