Got My First Jeep!

I just got my first Jeep last week. I bought a 2010 Grand Cherokee Laredo with 77,800 miles. Hopefully I didn't make a bad decision or overpay. I always wanted a Grand Cherokee. The mileage is high for the year but it's in excellent condition. How long can I hope for it to last if I keep it serviced and keep up with it?

It was $18,000 + tax, tag and title. The clean retail on NADA showed about 18,500 with the options it has.

Re: Got My First Jeep!

Is it the 3.7 or 4.7?

I hate to say it, but IMO I think you overpaid by a couple thousand. Yes it's only 2-3 years old, but it's still the base model for that year. As long as you're happy with it, I wouldn't let the price get you down though. I've seen dealers try to sell them for a lot higher as well. Welcome to the forum!!! It's a great looking jeep, looks very clean and I love that shade of blue! Just watch your wallet on here, there's a lot of great idea's and options to spend any extra cash you have

Re: Got My First Jeep!

I bought an 08 3.7 with 32k two years ago for $19k.

Nice Jeep none the less.

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.

It's good to see a dealership not being pushy. I admire that a lot. That's the way I feel business should be done. At the same time, they are in the business of making money. So you have to expect to pay more than what you would in a private party situation. Like you, I'd bet they took it in on trade from a small business that just used it for a mileage vehicle (highway miles). You will definitely get good service out of it that's for sure!
