I've had my Jeep nearly 5 years now. Have put about 50,000 miles on it. Really like this for a hunting vehicle. Enough room in the back with the back seat folded down, and also plenty of room for 4-5 people if needed. The only repairs I have needed to make other than the normal ones are I had to have the front CV joints (that's what I call them) replaced. There is one just inside each tire. Also had to have the passenger side wheel bearing replaced. I have stayed up pretty well on the scheduled maintenance of my Jeep. I'm sure that has helped.
The fact that it is a 4WD Jeep. Can take it anywhere I need to go. Have driven it on some pretty shoddy roads in the woods, and it crawls right along through anything. Have had other 4 WDs, but the Jeep just seems to have that extra grip.
Can't improve on a vehicle no longer made, but if it was I would suggest the rear doors be made a bit larger. Other than that I really like this vehicle.
