Perhaps you could have made a better deal, but that is in the past. Enjoy it.

Few people end up on their death beds saying "I wish I'd have driven more boring vehicles."

Every deal ever made that was considered good, the buyer still got screwed. The dealer would not sell you a vehicle unless they make money. The more the better. I probably could have bought a new 2012 base model for a few grand more, but I wanted the color and the ways it looked and was set up, with dual tops, and it was attractive to me. Mileage was higher than I would have liked, but getting it for $16,000 for a 2009 was OK for me. I still had some remorse, but you move on. I paid way more in financing than I should have, so after just 30 days of ownership, I refinanced with a credit union, put some down and shortened my loan, reduced my interest rate by 4.25 points, and my payment is reduced by $150 mo, so now the deal feels good. My point is that paying less each month for a shorter period sweetens the deal, so look into refinancing through a local credit union which are the cheapest loans. Now I love my Jeep.

Adrian I feel your pain. It wasn't on my Jeep purchase but I recently got screwed by a contractor who did some work on my property. I was kicking myself for days afterwards because I should have known better. I even lost sleep over it.

No sense in beating yourself up over it now. Just enjoy your Jeep. A few bucks - or a few hundred bucks - here or there won't matter in the grand scheme.

I felt like I shorted myself on the deal. Sticker price was $36,635 and I paid $35,000. A few weeks later Chrysler raised the base price of the Rubicon by about $250, so I don't feel so bad, but I didn't get a great deal. According to KBB.com, the deal I got was a fair deal, but I feel like I could have done better, given another opportunity to negotiate a deal.

No State has any cooling off period for cars. Not any more. There are cooling off periods for certain contracts in some States, but none apply to cars.

Don't mean to laugh....but that is funny (or ironic) considering your user name.

Learned the same lesson years ago on a new VW Jetta. The good thing about this lesson is that unless you have no self control you will likely never make the same mistake again. Be thankful you learned from it.
