Dealership Hell - AZ

First time member here. Had a black '14 Sport 2-Door a while ago, and due to a new commute back then, felt pressured to get something more fuel efficient. That car was a Chevy, and... well, that didn't go well at all. Bit of advice, never get an electric vehicle, their value plummets.

We had a Tacoma in the meantime that ate up the negative equity of the electric Chevy, and had paid that down for a couple years. I wanted to get back into a Jeep (no offense to people who love them, but the Tacomas are just vanilla and soulless), so we went back to our Toyota dealership for advice as to when the best time would be right. They were SUPER aggressive (Right Toyota dealership), tried putting me in an FJ Cruiser that was 12k over our budget (they had used Wranglers but seemed to refuse to let me into one despite me constantly telling them I didn't care about their Jeep knockoff made by Fischer Price). As I left I had three managers calling and texting me while I was not even 2 blocks down the road (this continued until this morning where I told them to f off). Later found out they were doing two things that were or bordered on illegal. Please don't go there...

The day prior our local Nissan dealership had a Rubicon out front. It literally was everything I could ever want for my dream Jeep, and it had a price tag that was extremely low. Since our old Toyota salesman wasn't going to help us out, figured I might as well just go there as they had what I wanted. Turns out it only had 64k miles despite it being an '09. Has Warn winch, Warn bumpers, 6" lift (done right to prevent any death wobble), new tirerods, shocks, etc. Thing is a beauty. Other than a cracked windshield that they're taking care of on Tuesday, I'm set!

It has the old straight 6 in it, and compared to my Fiat Wrangler, the engine sings when you gun it. It's a visceral joy, and I couldn't be happier. Best part, Jeep is significantly cheaper a month, insurance is lower, and registration is laughably low compared to the new Taco.

Anywho, hoping to meet people in our area. Nothing crazy, but would like to find some local trails and have a bit of fun.

The bad dealer was Right Toyota. The good one I got the Jeep from was Pinnacle Nissan.
