When It Rains It Pours
One of the running jokes around this house and with our family is the fact that our son Travis can't keep a car longer than a few months. For the past 3 years he has owned three different BMWs and the same Miata twice. All of these have been used cars. The Miata was purchased once then sold to another individual then traded back for a BMW he had purchased. All the BMWs have had problems and the last one died with a cracked head about 5 weeks ago. We have been playing musical cars since that time, and also borrowing one of my parents cars to fill in some gaps. Travis had finally decided to purchase a newer car that would be reliable and have low mileage. Finally found what he wanted at a dealership two hours away, went to look at it, liked it and bought it on New Year's Eve. Driving home that night he noticed the headlights flickering on and off and the dashboard lights. It has continued and he has done some research on the Jeep Commander and found out they have multiple electrical issues. Luckily hubby is the co-signer and hasn't signed the papers yet. Called the dealership and they want to fix it at now charge to us. But very leery about keeping the car because of everything we are reading online about the electrical issues. Poor Travis. He feels like he just can't win with cars. Please pray that this whole situation will work out to the good and that Travis can finally have a dependable car.
