    High miles.

    No.

    That's gotta suck. An hour late.

    108 k miles is the best I can get in our price range, and it only gets worse the older years I go.

    Amazing isn't it? How out of proportion are automobile prices with everything else?

    The Suburban for sale along my route is an '02 with 77,000 miles two wheel drive asking $10,900. The top looks clean but the underside shows some rust.

    There is no way on earth we could own a 2wd..simply don't care to live in the bar ditch in the winter. One nice thing about living in the dry west...our cars rarely have rust issues.

    A hunded thousand miles on a vehicle isn't what it use to be. My wife's Commander is a one owner and well maintained. Looks just like the one in the picture, and the background looks like somewhere close to where we live.

    That is a fact. I remember when at 80,000 they were blowing smoke and making noises. Now that's a low mileage vehicle.

    Looks a lot like Flaming Gorge, but probably just a picture of course....no Jeeps, I can't take that kind of headache on. I have owned two, and my parents owned two...couldn't replace parts fast enough, ruined me on that breed.
    I might consider an old school Wrangler or CJ for a weekend toy, but that won't haul 4 kids and a dog.
    Kind of a snob here, we want a Tahoe, or Yukon..long or short doesn't matter just one of those.

    Second Jeep for us. We are finding out that when we need a major part from a Jeep dealership, It's on backorder.

    The local Craigslist has many for sale advertised as "Easy & Cheap Fixes". If they are in fact easy & cheap the owner would already have them fixed & raise the price. I don't know if they really think the repair will be cheap or if they everybody else is stupid enough to believe what they say. There have been several easy fixes shown with the engine & transmission in the bed of the truck.

    well thar ya go right thar.....an "easy fix".....all you have to do, is "put the motor and transmission into the engine bay".....

    Tell the other guy's insurance company you need the rental a little longer to look for a new truck.
    If they laugh....tell them you need the rental to take RP to his doctor appointments....

    They don't need to know that it's a psychiatrist :)

    That really bites. Dealers love buyers in a hurry.

    We aren't tipping our hand but we are scrambling, to top it off we need something by Wednesday next week that will haul all of us since Brian's girls are coming in next week to spend spring break with us.
