I was looking online at used Mini Cooper's
around Germany when I realized I couldn't
find one that I really liked with the
features I wanted and with low kilometers.
Then I saw this silver 02 Jeep Liberty
Limited online about 90 minutes away from
me in Nürnberg. I emailed the dealer and
he said I could take it for a test drive.
I liked it right away but I needed
medication for the wife to keep her eyes
from rolling around so much...ha ha ha.
Anyway, after a €1000 deposit the dealer
painted the side to repair scratches on
the fender flare (it looked like
Wolverine, Freddy Krueger and a bear had a
contest), new headlights to pass
inspection which cost €743 for both. The
dealer covered these additional fixes
himself. I paid the remaining balance and
drove her home for €7,950 ($10,572 in Oct
2011). Not bad as far as German pricing
goes. Total mileage when I drove her
