Hey everyone... I'm from Ann Arbor, MI and I have never been more excited about anything in my life.
I've wanted a Jeep since I was....well... I think the day I was born. Here I am 30.... and yesterday I FINALLY did it. I ordered a 2015 Sahara, tank green, manual, soft top. I can't wait for it to get here.
I had some questions, probably stupid/embarrassing....
I'm not that great at shifting the 2015's I've been driving. I saw a couple threads on shifting, but to be totally honest I'm not that great at searching forums. I end up spending literally hours reading posts that never talk about what I want to know.
#1. Are there any posts on how to search the forums?
#2. How do I shift this thing without riding the clutch, or "bouncing" into first and second?
#3. Is it ok to go from gear 1, to 2, and then straight to 6 at around 40 MPH in an effort to get decent MPG's?
And the 2 most important questions....
#4. Would it be acceptable to tell the dealer I want to spend a day driving a Jeep around town to get used to it before mine gets here?
#5. How can I find out if I'm getting a good deal on my Jeep? Like I said it's a sahara, tank green, manual, soft top, only added options are an engine heater and connectivity. I paid $30,169 OTD.
I have a million other questions about how to take care of it, what a new Jeep owner needs to know, good/bad mods...all that stuff...but I will just read through posts for the next couple years for all that haha.
THANKS and I can't wait to join the Jeep family!
