After 5 Different Dealerships, I finally narrowed my entire search down to Tom Edwards Chyrsler / Dodge in Bartow and made my purchase. I no longer drive the black KIA Spectra that a few of you are familiar with. I kind of feel like I'm missing that little car but I'm very happy that I got this one.

I will be driving it up the "Sleep & Shoot" so any of you Southwest Floridians that want to carpool up together, let's pick a place to meet and we'll go up together; I'm leaving early Friday morning. I have a lot of storage space (Stow-N-Go) in the van so space isn't a problem. Also have a DVD Player in it if the drive starts to get boring, so bring some good one's.

Here's some "stock photo's" from the dealership that was on Autotrader.com. I'll take more tomorrow and post my own. I'm a very happy man right now.















Sorry I let you down Dan, but I didn't get approved for what you wanted me to get.

Hey Josh and Justin!
You wouldn't believe the beautiful skies I saw today while driving up Hwy 17 on my way to Bartow. It was so beautiful that I had to pull over and snap a pic!





You know I love you!

You dont even have to pop a tent when you goto the "Sleep and Shoot" buy a full size air matress drop down the back seats and watch dvd's all night long. Hell if it gets to hot or cold just start it up and you have central air or heat.

Congrats on the new ride!

you guys can laugh all u want I drive a mini van as well, Ford Windstar, I can speed all over town and never get a second look from the cops, dark tinted windows so its kinda like a poor mans limo, DVD player as well, I took the middle seat out ( your drops down too ) and its comfy as hell on long trips, the deck is a little uncomfortable for sleeping I do second the air mattress or a yoga mat ( the wifes ), great to haul all the gear to the range and if it starts to rain, you can toss all your crap in and wipe it down in nice environment, plus changing clothes for work or beach ( swim ) is a snap with the dark windows....enjoy

Ah shoot! They let us take the van to go get lunch too and we were gone for a good 90-minutes w/ it. I knew we were near Lakeland but didn't know how to get to Fat's. Had I known that, we would have brought the Van up there, grabbed a bite to eat, and swung back down into Bartow.

Polk County... Meh... Though Bartow was nice! I want to get away from the coast eventually and get into a smaller town somewhere in the middle of the state, though they are starting to vanish rapidly.

With that light color interior is your wife going to let you drive it to the range because the inside may get dirty.

I have owned 2.

Buy it used?

1. flush the ATF and put in the proper ATF+3 or+4 . DO NOT take a dealerships word for it , the previous owner could have taken it anywhere and had DExron put in.

2. add an external transmission cooler

3. Dont use OD if you can help it.

4. set aside some money for a Trasmission rebuild

5 wonder if it was really worth saving 2 or 3 k when you could have got the Sienna
