I purchased this Jeep 3 years ago when it had about 70,000 miles. Before this Jeep I owned a '95 model. Today I've more than doubled the mileage (157,000) and I've tuned it up once, turned the rotors, replaced a radiator hose, and spent a minimal amount on the front end. (I've four wheeled a little and got air a few times... probably my fault.) Just routine maintenance. I expect to have this car until it drops. I would recommend this car to anyone... just make sure it's been maintained well. I use synthetic oil and Lucas additive.
4.0 6 cylinder will lay some rubber. Very rugged - and so fun to drive. Compact yet great for carrying the family and luggage etc.
All exterior plastic trim pieces fade from black to gray... looks tacky.
