I bought the jeep smashed up in the front for a great price. Bought some new and used parts and painted it in my garage. Has been great ever since. Yearly maintenance is $100-$200 on average and I pile the miles on it. More reliable and durable than anything on the road. Everyone says in these reviews that they wish they still built them, the truth is that they do in China. AMC/Renault put a plant there in the 80's and they still build them today. Maybe they will offer them for sale here, I would buy one.
Tough as nails, easy to repair, reliable and those Renault style buckets have always been a favorite seat every since my renault fuego.
Import them from China, they would sell as well or better than some of the SUV's today. Interior could be more friendly and use less plastic, but the designs are over 25yrs old now, Holding up very well considering that fact.
