Our New Car!!






Ok, so for you of those who don't know, Meredith and I have been looking for a new car and I finally found it! After weeks/months of searching I found the deal that I wanted. It is a new jeep laredo! Ok not new but it smells like a new car and the engine is so clean it could be new. On wednesday I was able to go to a car auction thanks to Meredith's Uncle. I had been thinking that we would have to spend up to 17,000 dollars for what we were looking for. That is the jeep grand cherokee limited edition, however after thinking about it and not winning any car auctions online, Meredith's Uncle and I decided that we needed to go to these auctions in person. Thank goodness we did. We were not in the auction for more than 15 minutes and I had bought a car. It was the first jeep to pull up, and it was beautiful. Granted it did not have all of the extras that Meredith and I were thinking we might want, but we are poor college students with a baby on the way, plus the extras were outrageous anyway(dvd player, nav system, and etc.). We really just wanted a good car that could last us a long time. Since the jeeps have gotten the best ratings for SUV's in its class, we thought it would be a good car for us, plus Meredith loves how jeeps drive.


Now, I just want you all to look up on NADA.com what the price of a 2005 Jeep Laredo with 27000 miles on it would be. It also has the roof racks and the Boston Acoustics stereo. Most of you are probably thinking no thanks, so I will just tell you. Almost $18,000, I bought mine after all said and done (registration, tax, license plates, etc) for much less than that. If I wanted to I could turn around and sell it and make a good profIt on it. It is absolutely gorgeous, oh and it still has a bumper to bumper warranty, and I can extend that for another 3 years after the initial one ends. Here are some pictures, just take a look at how clean it is, this is how I bought it, plus the engine is brand new!

Yay for good Uncles who have the hook up and Yay for car auctions!

It really is brand new looking and has that wonderful new car smell. He even let me sit in it the other evening and sniff.
Adam said the 6:00 early morning drive to the auction was worth it.
I liked it so much that I gave him the garage bay that my BMW 740iL was parked in. That is saying a lot.

Fun! Congratulations! I am glad you were able to get a car you wanted for a great deal! Are you going to keep your other car too?

Ali: It is up to you if you want me to come up and pick you up to go back to Utah in Mid August that is fine I can do that.

Michelle: Yes we will definitely be keeping the other car. We plan on keeping both until they die on us.
