Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Feb 7th, 2007 4:28pm

When I was in elementary school my parents bought a Jeep Cherokee Laredo, in white. It was my first new-car buying experience, and I think I did pretty well all things considered.

I love my car.  I am obsessed with my car.  I may not keep it super clean, but I love it all the same.  I pay an insane amount because I am in a 25,000 mile/year lease (my choice and yes, the dealer tried to talk me out of it), but  I wouldn't trade it for the world!
