Re: Got My First Jeep!

Congrats on getting your first WK! Here is some free advice-

1) Make sure you have a good relationship with a shop/mechanic/dealership. You're gonna be seeing a lot of each other.

2) Have a nice stack of cash ready to go---- towards repairs.

3) Have a bottle aspirin on hand - Trust me, the headaches are coming!

4) Get ready to hear "What is it, this time?!" from friends and relatives

5) Meet and greet everyone on Jeep Garage, because your gonna need all the help you can get!!


Just kidding! You have a good vehicle! Just maintain your Jeep and don't cut corners or cheap out on certain things! I love my WK, and have had a few problems already, but it is a great vehicle. If you take care of your WK, chances are it will take care of you.

Good luck and welcome to being a Jeep Owner.

Regards,
-Tom

It's a 3.7. Yeah, I had a feeling I might have overpaid a bit. I'm trying not to let it get to me. The salesman at the dealership was great. Not pushy at all and very personable. That's part of why I didn't push for much lower. I am very happy with it. Quite a bit of a change from my OLD Accord but in a very good way. I figured it was a business vehicle based on the mileage. Inside looks brand new. I thought the drivers seat might feel broken in a bit but not at all.

You are all right. Modding is definitely up next. I'm hoping it will last me a good long time.
NEVER have mercy on a salesman. 'Personable' or not.

Re: Got My First Jeep!

I have seen Jeeps in my area with similar mileage and year going for that price. I bought a clean history 2010 3.7 with 41,000 in December of 2011 for $18,400, took lot's of bargaining though.

Moreover, congrats! You'll love it, but like everyone else said, maintain it to a T and you should be golden.

Still a high price, even for 2011. Maybe because I live outside the Motor City, that vehicles are less.

Re: Got My First Jeep!

Who cares if you overpaid a little. If you are happy with it then the money won't be an issue. Just stings a bit at first but it'll be fine. Jeeps are awesome. You'll love driving it for sure. Good luck!
