Finally bought my dream vehicle!

I just graduated and my Saturn vue started to act up. I took it in, and they told me I had to pay roughly $1500 just to fix the issues they could see, and that more could be wrong with it.

Took a look at Carmax and found a jeep I really wanted. A 2012 Sport with hardtop. However, they couldn't offer me enough in trade-in and their financing rate was over 7% because I would be upside down in the loan.

So I left, and low and behold, I see a jeep dealership on the way home. I had seen the advertised prices they were asking for online and knew I couldn't afford anything they had, but I gave them a chance. Sure enough, they had a 2013 Sport S available and they made me an offer i couldn't refuse, plus they gave me 3% financing and $7k on the Saturn.

I love this thing!!! I have no idea why people complain about the ride, it's so comfortable. The new engine is incredibly smooth. I find myself looking for excuses to drive it over curbs various other obstacles. It's also surprising that when I drive through water it doesn't pull, and you wouldn't know it if it weren't for the monsoon spray it sends into the windshield.

My only issue is that it leaks from the passenger side window. But they're taking care of that tomorrow.

Just wanted to introduce myself.

Looks great! That is a base model though, the S package has alloy wheels rather than the steelies.

That's a good story - just remember that not everyone is as fortunate as you in this regard.

Congratulations and enjoy your jeep.
