For the last two years of our 2001 GMC Yukon XL's life, every oil change at Jim Salerno's service department turned into a thousand dollar repair. Then, two and a half years ago, my blonde investment banker self made a solo trip to Jim Salerno to test drive and find out about leasing a GMC Yukon Denali. The good old boys on the porch came in from their smoke break long enough to tell me I should come back with my husband to make such an important financial decision, and that surely I wanted to own, not lease. So we bought a Chevrolet Suburban in Morristown and leased our current Jeep Grand Cherokee from Fullerton Jeep in Bridgewater.
Since that time, when we drive by Jim Salerno Automotive, London and Maddie have shouted out "Good Day, Sir!" in the style of Gene Wilder as Willie Wonka, indicating that we have nothing more to say to each other.
At least for now, the story has a happy ending. By 5:45pm, the Red Jewel was ours... Good Day, Sir!
