Talking New member, First Car!

Hey everyone,
I am new to this site so I decided I would introduce myself. I just bought a 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Did I mention I am only 15 and this is my first car! I am so excited to see what will come of it in the future and the memories I will have with it. So more about the car.....61,000 miles, automatic transmission, 4x4, has full front doors, Sahara color scheme etc. Being that this is my first car, and Jeep specifically, if you have any advice or comments on the car or anything at all feel free to post! THANKS

Welcome!! Lucky to get a Jeep as your first vehicle. I had to wait till I was 36 to get my Jeep.

Thanks and I know...it took some convincing of the parents, plus some cash from my pocket but I couldn't be happier.

Welcome to the obsession. Looks like a really nice ride.

My first car was a 1970 Chevy Impala in 1985. My first Jeep was a 2002 in 2011. The Jeep probably could have fit in the trunk of that old Impala.
