New Car!!!

So this weekend, I was lucky enough to get a new car! I am so excited about it, and I totally love the new car smell. This was not in our plans at all at the moment, but some things happened to the old car that we had to make a choice.

I have been driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee and it started to act up on us. The sensory devices stopped working and then it stopped starting! So needless to say we were a little worried about what the problem might be. My dad got us a new starter because that is what everyone thought was the problem, but once Matt got that on there it still did not start. So after playing with a few things we were able to get it to start so we immediately took it to a dealer to have them check it out. You see, it would start whenever it felt like it but never on a consistent basis, so we could not turn it off once we got it started unless we were prepared to wait a couple days for it to start again. We ran into a salesman once we got to the dealership because the service department was closed, so he took down our information and was going to have the service guy call us in the morning. Long story short, the service guy called us and told us the problem and how much it would cost to fix, and the salesman called and told us he could get our jeep paid off, if we wanted to trade it in...so since the other jeep had no warranty and they were going to pay if off even though it was broken, we traded it in! And they gave us a GREAT deal on the new one as well.
So I have a beautiful new Jeep Cherokee, that has a warranty that will last a long time...and the best part is IT STARTS! Yes it runs and starts whenever I WANT IT TO, not when it feels like it! Thanks to my sweet hubby who made this all happen!
