yesterday i paid off my mastercard in full (which had lots and lots of college expenses on it) and this morning the FedEx guy shows up at my house with a package for me. inside that package was an offer for employment from honeywell (yay for getting a job that utilizes my degree!) anywho, i said when i got a new job, i was going to get a new car too! i figure it's finally time to trade in my saturn coupe :boings:i wanted a highlander hybrid, but toyota has pushed back their release date or whatever you want to call it until next year and i can't hold out that long! i definitely want something with 4 doors cause i'm tired of only having two :lol: maybe i'll go for a regular highlander....anyone have any other suggestions?

Why get a ride with 4 doors when you can get a Jeep Wrangler with 2 and a soft top! Talk about riding in style! :) Or you can even take OFF the doors and be ultra cool!!!

PS. I don't have one yet, but plan to very shortly :)

my mom has a highlander and that's what got me wanting the highlander hybrid...i heard jeeps were one of the most broken into vehicles...maybe my source was wrong...i wanted a liberty when they first came out till i saw their taillights...

Congrats Alice. and I have had a Grand Cherokee for about 3 years now. And today i went looking for a new truck and im thinking of getting a 2004 Ford Expedition XLT Im waiting for fathers day to get this so when they have their big Fathers Day sale it will be 2 grand cheaper! I got an inside source at this dealership. So my truck is basicly mine i just have to wait another month. Which i do not mind at all.

Congrats on the highlander. If I caught you earlier I would have recommended a Jeep Wrangler with a hard top--keeps me warm in wet weather. You can always change to a soft top in warm weather, and there are some that combine both. Jeeps have lots of power, decent gas milage, and can make compact turns.:boings:

PS My Jeep has never been broken into, the dealer told me its rare because the radio set up is so different than other cars.

i'm not a big fan on snow - getting snow once or twice a year is enough for me!
