An Awesome Blessing From God
Buying a vehicle can sometimes be nerve wrecking and a blessing at the same time. When we arrived at the dealership, we had no idea what was going to happen. We were there just to see what the dealer offered.
To our surprise, the representative, who worked with us was able to get us into a car and keep us on budget. As the year ended, we enjoyed our new ride. Except for one thing, I lost my job a few months later!! I couldn’t believe my ears. I have been with the company for 13 1/2 years. I enjoyed all the benefits I had with this company.
As a child of God I needed to be more faithful and prayerful than anything else because I am a living testimony for others who are going to read my post.
My husband, on the hand, was so worried about what we worked hard for all theses years may all be lost because of me, loosing my job. He always tries to be in faith all the time. I love him.
I want to tell you a little story as to why we wanted to get another car. Why we felt like we needed one.
A lil story
My husband uses the jeep daily for work and he needed the jeep to be running smoothly. He drives about 100 miles a day, maybe more. Unlike me my work was about 3 miles away. I told him to use my truck but he rather use the jeep.
His reason for this is that if the jeep were to stop running suddenly, its better for him to be stranded than my daughter and I. For safety, he just didn’t want to take the risk. Here are some of the issues we were having on our vehicle.
Our jeep issues
First, our bright red 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee, also known as ZJ, was having some problems. The jeep would jerk a little after going over a bump and sometimes almost shutting off.
Another problem was the shifting error. Seems the jeep was not shifting well at times and there is not much power when put into drive. We would have to drive off in 2nd gear. After our mechanic took a lot see. He said the transmission mount needs replacing and that will take care of the jerking part of it. As for the shifting, he determined we needed to replace the valve body on the transmission.
I have called auto parts stores for the valve body and come to find out, this particular part is no longer sold separately from the transmission. I was stunned. I would have to purchase the entire transmission.
Another solution was to scout the internet for the item, see if anyone is selling one. In fear of scams, I never made a purchase. The only thing we want to do now is to rebuild the transmission. In the mean time we really needed a more reliable car. Midway Chevy was on our minds but my honeybun wanted to see if other dealerships would work with us.
We began visiting car dealer lots. The first lot we went to, the man took a look at us and asked “if we were gonna put money down”. We said “no down payment” and we stated the monthly budget we can handle. He automatically said “With that much a month, the bank will ask for a 10% down payment”. I said “ok, lets start drawing the paper work and let the bank decide that, shall we?” He didn’t want to do it. So we didn’t push it, we just walked out and left to the lot we ben to before. #Midway Chevrolet was our next stop and our last.
We were exceptionally grateful for the service we’ve received!
