Just when I thought things were settling in after our move and spending weeks getting unpacked and organized, my trusty Jeep KJ started making odd noises and whining a lot--especially when she was cold. As a side note, I do the same thing--whine when I am cold...but her problems were much more serious than mine.
As much I wanted to not make a change, I had no choice but to admit that it was time to buy a new car (she was 11+ years old and had 118,000+ miles).
So I traded her in on a newer Wrangler. Here is my new ride!
Ain't she purty?
She drives like a champion and no mechanical worries for me anymore. I'm still figuring out all of her bells and whistles too...and having fun in the process.
