The price was right. The car seems right. It’s a 2.0t Lux wagon loaded with everything except the VR6 and AWD.

$5500 from a dealer for a 2008 with ice cold air, nice soft leather, rear seat window shades, Bluetooth for phone calls, and memory seats. It just turned 101k, and lived its life in eastern NC where it was serviced every 6 months at the VW dealer in Wilmington, until it was sold at auction last year and came to Charlotte.

It needs a few things - but they’re minor. I ordered key fobs already, and will be ordering the end caps to the roof rails tomorrow, but all in all it’s super solid and my wife loves it.

Now Cheapster Cherokee is for sale.
