Where do you buy your cars from? (In particular, Jeeps.)

Asked by CherrySempai (1137points) September 5th, 2010

Alright, so I want to buy a Jeep. I bought my last car at a school auction, so I have no experience in car-hunting. My dad always finds our cars, but he’s never bought a Jeep before, so I’m looking for advice. :]

I want a yellow, hard-top, two door, air conditioning, automatic. I’d prefer new, but as long as it doesn’t have too many miles on it, I can do used, too. Any price is fine.

I was interested in the resent Wrangler (I’ve only looked online), but it doesn’t come in yellow and I doubt my parents will let me get a paint job.

So, I ask you Fluther, where did you find your car (especially if you were looking for something specific)? :]

I’m looking for a Jeep too.

Craigslist usually has tons of listings for mainly used Jeeps.

Is there an authorized Jeep dealer in your area? That would probably be your best bet.

Check the classified ads..also bulletin boards if they have such near you.

Good choice. It shouldn’t be hard find one. Most Jeeps have the this long lasting bullet-proof engine/trans combo (that 4.0L strait 6). You can buy one with 100K miles on and it will last you a few years.

I have had 3 jeeps (94, 95, and 96).
I bought them all at used car lots, and paid about 4K for each. Each was at about 60K, and about 5 to 7 years old.

Have someone check your car or go with you before you buy. I have a jeep now and the guy we bought it from took a lot of stuff out and the electrical is kinda dumb.

My last car, which I was specifically searching for, was bought at Carmax.
