And At Last, My "New" Car
December 17, 2012
In almost 40 years of driving, I have owned only 5 cars, all of which have been General Motors vehicles, the most recent being a 1999 GMC Jimmy SLT. In fact, I still own a 1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Although the Jimmy has been extremely reliable, I felt it was time to begin looking, just in case! Years ago I began to look at the GMC Envoy as the next logical step up from the Jimmy and was very disappointed to have that model discontinued by GM. When I began my car search in earnest, I looked at the Envoy, in particular the 2006/2007 models. Also during this spell, I decided to branch out and also entertained the idea of purchasing a used Land Rover LR3. After much time looking for either vehicle, I found a beautiful 2009 GMC Envoy SLT which ticked all of the boxes. This car is great and a wonderful upgrade from the Jimmy. It has all the bells and whistles and is both comfortable and a joy to drive. It has 57k miles on it and came GM Certified, a nice bonus. I purchased an additional 3 year warranty to keep it in tip-top shape. It is a perfect choice for me and purchased at a great price from Sweeney Chevrolet in Youngstown, OH. I still drive the Jimmy now and then and my brother is planning on purchasing it from me. I am looking forward to many years with my "new" car.
