my 2 cents - keep up the test driving. do a lot of them. doesn't matter if the Cherokees you drive are exactly what you want. just get some miles in. try highways, especially highway hills. the last thing you want is some kind of buyers remorse cuz you didn't know about something. try lots of local roads with traffic lights & stop signs to see how it stops, downshifts & starts again from a stop. drive your local roads & routes. including parking it where you usually shop etc.It's had 2 (single) owners, no rental car history. No accidents or weird maintenance. Recalls are zero for this vehicle. Arrived & stayed in NM state. I'm in WA state. It's on Carvana. I've driven a local one but this one has the "bells & whistles" I'm looking for.
so many ppl on so many auto forums often write about how they didn't know or weren't aware of this or that, which all could have been avoided up front before the purchase
also try multiple dealers. if any dealer gives you cr*p, cross them off the list. when I shop for a car, I'm also shopping for a dealer. there's 1 dealer in our state, who owns multiple dealerships for multiple brands. after several bad experiences, I never go to any of his dealerships. one of his salesmen actually said to me: "give me your keys, you won't need them anymore, I will sell you a car today" of course I did not give him my own cars keys. & when I got back from my test drive & handed the dealer's keys to someone at the desk, the salesman ran out to my car & asked me: "but what am I gonna tell my boss?" poor guy, working there must be living hell
