"New" to Jeep...soon at least
Well, first off, hello to all! I just - or at least in the process of - purchasing my first Jeep.
Right now I have an 08 Caliber SRT4 (which I love and don't really want to part with) but have to get rid of her for my fam... Need something a little more practical with, although in the Compass not too much more, a little more Cargo room and something easier to get my 2 year old in and out of.
So I traded in my CSRT4 towards an 08 Compass Limited with 4WD. All of the basic standard items, leather, heated seats, CVT tranny.... She's got 9100 miles on her, books for $22,300 and we're getting her for 18 grand even.
I've heard a lot of "bad" about the CVT's but my test drive made me feel a little better. Although it was really only around the block, but in a lot of traffic with lots of hard acceleration. I'll just say that it was a little on the lack-luster side. But not as bad as I expected with the car reviews that I have read...
Anywho. It'll be a couple weeks before I can pick her up. But I'll be getting pics up as soon as I do!
