This Week In Jeep:
Jeep sales up 22%, on pace for best year ever!
The U.S. auto industry has shown impressive resilience through the first half of the year, with sales coming in better than most analysts expected. But even against that backdrop, 2018 has been exceptional for Jeep. Through the year’s first six months, Jeep has sold 495,022 vehicles in the United States. Not only is that up 22 percent from last year, but it puts Jeep on pace to eclipse 2016 as the brand’s best year ever. That year, which was the industry’s best on record in terms of sales, Jeep moved 926,376 units. There’s a very real chance Jeep will sell 1 million vehicles in the United States this year. To put that into some context, it was only 2014 when Jeep broke the 1 million unit barrier globally. That really does say a whole lot about where the industry is if an exclusively SUV brand sells 1 million units in a year. And most analysts agree. Jeep is on pace to set the bar higher than any other automaker on the planet. Finally… my predictions of a Jeep based global domination are coming true!
Missing Oregon woman’s Jeep spotted entering Monterrey County
Over the last week or so, you may have seen or heard about a woman and her Jeep pop up in the news. Unfortunately it’s not for anything nice. New evidence indicates Angela Hernandez, a Portland woman who was reported missing while on a trek along the west coast was last seen in Monterey County, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. 23 yr old Angela Hernandez, was driving her white 2011 Jeep Patriot with Oregon plates from Oregon to Southern California to visit family when she disappeared on July 6th. The whole trip Hernandez would call and text relatives several times each day during her journey south…that is until she reached Half Moon Bay, deputies said. On the morning of July 6, she told her family she was getting back on Highway 1 southbound from Half Moon Bay and expected to arrive in Southern California that night. She never arrived. And according to deputies, her family hasn’t heard from her since then. Search efforts ensued, including Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s deputies searching the coastline from the air. On Thursday, deputies said they found video footage from traffic and security cameras showing Hernandez’s Jeep entering Monterey County at about 9:30 a.m. Footage from businesses along Highway 1 helped San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office investigators determine that Hernandez drove as far south as the Carmel area on Friday, hours after she texted that she was leaving Half Moon Bay. Conversations with residents led them to believe she may have taken Nacimiento-Fergusson Road, south of Big Sur, to Highway 101 in order to bypass the closure of Highway 1 in Gorda. Search efforts are slim in that area due to accessibility and terrain. Currently there is a $10,000 reward for information leading to her discovery.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts should call authorities.

More Jeep Buttons
Working on another buttons video. This time I’m going to share what the other buttons on the center console do. The two outside with the marking that looks like a chair is the heated seat button. One is for the driver and one for the passenger. The passengers in the back seat are out of luck. Now not all Jeeps have this. I very rarely use this button. The few times I did was when I had lower back pains. But I remember the first time I did it felt like I pee’d myself. The next is button is the Electronic Stability Control button. Then the hill descent which I share in episode …. And I have a video on You Tube. Then you have the hazards and this emblem is red. If you don’t know how to use this you shouldn’t be driving any vehicle. The next button, on my Jeep, is the super stealth button. I plan on showing you how it’s used in my next video which I hope to post on YouTube on Sunday.
