I got my Jeep new on my 16th birthday and still have it now. It has never left me stranded and is still running strong with just routine maintenance at a tad over 100,000 miles. It is a great suv to have for all occasions, such as out with clients, moving furniture or just around town doing errands.
The 4WD rules in the snow. It is large enough to bring all of my stuff with room to spare back and forth to college. My jeep has great acceleration getting on highways and has enough power to get up long hills without struggling. reasonable gas mileage for its size (about 350 miles on highway).
