I bought this car brand new in '99. Had to replace transfer case ($2500), window regulator, speaker and wiring, front brake calipers and a few days ago the thermostat plus all kinds of other small stuff. Maybe other cars are worse, but until now it drove fine but in the last few months I've had to spend a couple thousand dollars to keep it going. With 57,000 miles, I'm worried about the next 40,000. Maybe it's time to sell.
Utility - ability to stuff all kinds of cargo in it.
Make it more dependable; it's supposed to be a Jeep.
