    Looks like an excellent choice... Hopefully the new recliner fits in the back!

    When people lose their way and begin to vote for their own yokes and chains and suddenly we’re all wearing them, when Government turns tyrannical and the light of liberty is being extinguished.... our 2nd amendment is our ONLY hope.

    Great choice, and happy to see that you managed to find a dealer that wasn't playing games.

    Do online research of the different packages ie. SL, SEL, LTD, etc. Decide what options you want before going in and do not settle for less. Also check the dealers invoice price and the manufacture's rebates and incentives and refuse to pay a dealers prep fee. Good luck and don't be shy about walking away it is your money.
    I second that. I have had a Nissan Rogue for about a year now, and I’d buy it again...

    That's the best recommendation for a vehicle...or any product!

    Best way to buy a car at a dealership. Know what you want, get preapproved from another bank, get check, put in envelope and go to the car lot. When the sales man tries to sell you something. Tell him, "this is what I want, if you can't make a final deal, don't talk to me". Now, I have done this twice. First time and first dealership, I walked out. The sales person tried to offer me an "upgrade" from what I selected. a 10 grand upgrade in price. Told him nope. Second dealership, the sales man told me he could make the deal. As soon as he said, "I need to check with the manager" I walked out, he chased me down and begged me to come back, end of the month need to meet quota. 3 dealership, finally left me alone, let me shop, and didn't play games. 2nd time. I bought a car online.
    I will never give in to something that goes against my beliefs. I will die before I fold, because if you can't keep true to yourself what's the point of being a man.

    Every real estate vehicle I have owned since 1980 has been white, and except for the 1980 Pontiac Bonneville, all other have been A Genral Motors Suburban type vehicle or Yukon XL (extra long) and the last three have had captains chairs.

    The white mostly because it is cooler in the summer. You get in and out of a vehicle quite a few times a day if you are carting folks around from out of town who are there to buy a house, and the summer is tough. It is hot outside, and any dark color car is going to heat up faster than a white auto and white will cool down faster. Then, there is the clean factor Czechbkr mentioned, and most real estate professionals keep their cars clean, and pretty well detailed.

    When I got my real estate license in 1972, one of the prominent real estate companies of the time, required all their salespeople to drive white 4 doors.

    A white auto with a lot of chrome has always had a rich look.

    I think a black vehicle is probably the most elegant in my mind, and actually bought one back in the mid 90's. I was reminded once again that they must be washed frequently to maintain that elegance...up to several times per week...!

    I have owned two black vehicles in my life, a 62 Crown Vic tudor hardtop, but it did have a white roof and a 78 K-5 Blazer. Black needs to be polished more often, bad for a hunting vehicle as they really show scratches if you are driving around a ranch where there is a lot of mesquite. A clean black auto is beautiful if you just build your own show room and park it there, and it gets hot inside very quickly.

    A bad thing around Lubbock, we have a lot of minerals in our water and the black shows water spots the worst of any vehicle.

    Car Washes recycle RO water and there are no minerals or salts there. If you wash your own car and do not have a good water softner, it can be frustrating.

    Black is a good color in the winter if the sun is shining as you can get into a toasty, well maybe not exactly toasty but comfortable on a freezing day. Keeping it clean in the winter is pretty much a real chore.
