We have loved our Jeep since we first
bought it. It has made four trips
across the country with no problems
(twice towing a U-Haul). The few
repairs on it have been relatively
minor. The serpentine belt, a cracked
head, a window that doesn't want to
roll back up (needs manual assistance)
and a crack in the exhaust manifold.
Every time we think of upgrading to a
newer SUV (with the third seat) we
can't bear to part with the Jeep.
We'll probably keep it until the
wheels fall of!
Off road abilities, the classic Jeep
style, great handling on and off road,
easy to reach kids in the back seat,
perfect for camping (holds all our
gear, bikes etc), and it just feels
solid - like a quality made vehicle!
I personally would like more storage
compartments (I know, I know... it's
not a minivan), and I wish that there
was a third seat option.
