If hes not kidding hes right. It was at the town and country jeep on aurora across from midnight window tint. And it was sitting next to a blue one on 33s, thats the one i orginally went to look at.

And if youre serious about doing that, youre simply an immature turd. Im honestly enraged, I dont care that I bought a car someone does this to, but who test drives a vehicle for fun and trashes it? Then brags about it? Someone who disrespects another persons (in this case car dealers) vehicle deserves a transmission failure on the freeway in rush hour. Honestly, the other day I went to wal mart and my wife bought some flower seeds for her moms garden, we also bought mothers day cards, some chips, and something else, the checker didnt ring up the seeds, we didnt notice this until we got home. The next day I went back to let them know what happened, and I payed for the seeds. Im not going to go bankrupt over 2 dollars. So what pisses me off is I'm an honest person making an honest living and there are people out there who do stuff like this.

Even if he's making it up, "why?" is the question I have. It doesnt even occur to me to trash someone elses car, it doesnt even occure to me to make up a story about trashing someone elses car, it doesnt even occur to me, even if i did trash someone elses car to brag about it on the internet.

Sorry guys, Im sure everyone by now can tell I say/type whats on my mind. Am I wrong to rant about this?

Lets see if I can back track, I bought it with 32,000 miles, and traded it with 68,000. Soooo I believe it went out around 60,000 to 62,000. But I also went 4 wheeling a few times so i feathered that clutch a lot. it was just the slave that went out, but I had the clutch done at the same time, it just made sense to me to do both at once.

they had that jeep there 2 weeks ago!
i told the sales person that i was picking out a graduation present and he let me and my bud test drive it... (and for some reason the guy didnt come with us)

man.. let me tell you.. i beat the hell out of it! we were doin donuts in parking lots..
i had the thing bouncing off the rev limiter in every gear!! chirpin the tires! man it was awsome...im surprised theres any tread left.. i was laying down number 11's at every light!! by the time i brought it back, the engine temp was way up and all you could smell was the burning clutch and the baked rubber!

it was a blast...

so i dont know how relialble it is now.. i figure they must have reset the CHECK ENGINE light... and fixed it up for you
I dont think Carl Berenson of Shoreline Washington, zip code 98177, born march 1st, 1991 should be putting so much information on the internet and admitting to intentionally destroying Town and Country Dodge, Jeep and Chryslers property. Im sure he gave them his ID to copy and go test drive.

Trust me bro. A few donuts and burnouts could never hurt a jeep. But the long arm of the law can sure put a hurting on immature little kids!

Karma bro. Karma. I'm a firm believer. Good luck kid. Hope life treats you well. Don't ever come to northwest Arkansas. Round here you go to jail for destruction of property. Don't drop the soap.

my stock f150 gets that driving around normally.

my dads stock 98 gets 14.

they dont get that good.

as for all this arguing...

no matter what used vehicle you buy you run the risk of what has happened to it in the past.

should this guy be bragging about it? NO, that is not right. Do we know if he is telling the truth? NO. We sure dont.

I dont think we need to be calling names and getting into a e-fight.

I'm done. I love the jeep and know for a fact what they can handle as far as abuse. No worries bro. I just hope he grows up and learns to respect other people stuff or learns to tell the truth. Sorry zach. I worked at a dealership for 2 years and experienced situations like this a lot. Just not cool what he posted. Very inappropriate.

I understand where you are coming from, I dont beat on anything unless its mine. When I test drive a truck I like to just use it as I would. Not go for a joy ride for the heck of it. I couldnt do it.

Me either, but I know my truck was broke into at the lot I bought it from. LOL I don't care. I have respect for people and their belongings. The dealership however enclosed that my truck had been broke into.

I agree. Karma will get the best of him.

But, the dealer wasnt so honest, They sent me home for 2 days without an approved loan! I drove this jeep for 2 days loving it and this afternoon I got a call saying they need a co signer, or more money down. I was nervous about the deal already and felt it was the right thing to do AS IS. But not more down. So the wife and I tried a couple of banks around here and tried to get our own auto loan by talking to the adjusters and whatnot. But bottom line, my 150 is back home, and I bleed blue for a couple years longer.

Weve decided to go the route of keeping it, and hoping to maybe pay it off early, we are slightly relieved, but bummed at the same time. So it doesnt work, and in my mind Ive done everything within my power and out budget to try to downscale, but its just not in the cards.

It baffles me though, why would they let us drive away if it wasnt approved? Other than them knowing it wouldnt work, so the wanted us to take it home, fall in love with it, then dip farther into our savings to put more down. This isnt my first rodeo, I know how their numbers work.

Oh well, at least I can stare at the pretty blue oval longer. Whos knows, maybe a new ranger in a couple years. Theyre going to be bigger right? I havent followed them lately. Ive only been looking at the 150. Anyone check out the raptor?
