My New Toy

I promised photos, and now I'm delivering. Here are a few exterior shots of our new vehicle.



The dashboard...


Under the hood...


And now for the "bonus" features that we didn't need, but are cool to have. We wanted satellite radio, but as you can see in this photo, we also got the bonus features of direction and temperature displays.


The auto-stick is a pretty cool feature, too. We can switch from automatic to standard transmission if we want to.


One of Phil's favorite "bonus" features is the larger rims and tires. I could care less about that, but I think that nitrogen in the tires is pretty cool.


We also go the nine speaker stereo system, which came with this really cool feature.


Do you see it there? The rear speakers flip down when the hatch is open so you can use them for your tailgate parties. Isn't that so cool?!


Well, that's pretty much it. What do you think?

I love it!! A new car is so exciting, and I love everything made by Jeep. You're going to love it.

Congrats on the new car...Good luck with it...looks beautiful!!!

Andrea said...

It looks great, Mel - how many people does that seat???

Melodie said...

It only seats five, which is the only thing I don't like about it. We'll just have to not go anywhere as a family when the step-son is over, or take two cars when we do. But, we've been doing that for a while now, so we're used to it.

I like the speakers in the back...so cool. Is that a Jeep Cherokee? My husband had a 98 Cherokee and a '05 Liberty...both we fun vehicles.

Awesome new car!! Looks like it smells good, I love that new car smell. BTW, I still have that bag of clothes for you.

Kandee, No, it's not a Cherokee, it's a Patriot.

Stacy, Yes, it does have that wonderful new car smell. I think that's my favorite part of it.
