First Jeep

I started looking into purchasing a new car about 6 months back - my wife was coming due for our first child and our current vehicle - a 2007 Pontiac G6 - was looking a bit inadequate to the tasks ahead. I spent a good amount of time researching things - reliability, cargo volume, 4x4 capability, flexibility. I settled on the Cherokee as a good fit, but assumed any dreams of owning one would be a bit further down the road.

Things came to a head about 2 weeks ago - we had been looking into houses and a promising deal fell through. In an effort to distract myself from the disappointment, I was digging into my car hobby on a site that claimed to have good deals with auto financing. I didn't find anything spectacular, and started to settle in for the night. Apparently the site fed back to dealers, and I got a phone call around 6 in the evening from a dealer in Bloomington, MN - about 2 hours from where we live. He mentioned that the deals on the site didn't take into account the manufacturer's offers - but that they expired that night. I resignedly told my wife the story, thinking of yet another thing slipping through our fingers, but she got that math look in her eye (she majored in Combinatorics), and off we went to the dealer at 7 at night with a hungry baby in tow. An hour later we were driving home in a shiny blue Latitude. We made out pretty well, but this is a new experience for both of us - neither of us has had a new car before this point, let alone a Jeep. Looking forward to taking advantage of everyone's experience here.

I'm pretty much committed to a long term ownership. Does anyone have suggestions on maintenance that would keep things in good order, minimize rust, ect?

Re: First Jeep

Howdy! Welcome to Jeep Garage

Congrats on the new Jeep and the new Baby! Post up any questions you may have in the Cherokee section and they're usually more than happy to offer an opinion.
