Post Hello from Seattle!

I bought my first Jeep earlier this year, a 2001 WJ 60th Anniversary in Silver. I wasn't sure if a Grand Cherokee would work for me or if I'd have to go Wrangler instead, so I bought the most decent used one I could squeeze into what I wanted to spend. And I love it.

My original intention was to keep it for 2-3 years and upgrade if it was working out fine. But then I started looking at the 2011s and 2012s (big mistake ), and now I'm lusting after a new one. The only reasons a 2012 isn't on order yet are rumors of the 8 speed and rumors of the diesel coming to the US. And, of course, hopes for a better green than 2011.

Any Seattlites see this? If so, what dealers do you guys like for purchase? Chatted with Rairdons and not favorably impressed so far. The dealer in Bellevue seems better. I have a great mechanic for my current one, but who do you guys like for service on new ones around here?

Welcome to JG......

just my $.02 but I wouldn't buy a thing from Dodge of Bellevue. They are part of "Auto Nation" chain of dealerships. I've never had any positive dealings with that group. I was looking at a truck quite a few years ago and they took my keys. Weren't going to let me leave without a sale. I physically had to reach over the counter into their glass walled "bullpen" to retrieve them. It wasn't the Dodge dealer but still part of the same chain.
I use Rairdon's in Kirkland for our Mopar vehicles. So far their service has been good......
