I have had my Jeep since my junior year of high school. It got me to and from college countless times, three moves, and even an annual 1,000 mile round trip vacation. This car has never broken down and I have never needed roadside assistance in the 8 years I have owned it. However, AC finked out at 90,000 and many minor repairs were also made, adding up quite a bit. But I can't complain, this car is the epitome of reliable- snow storms, white outs, blinding rain? No problem, always has got me through! The design has no bells and whistles, mine doesn't even have cruise control, but thats's what makes this car fun! It's a truck and meant to be simple.
So fun to drive! Amazing turning capability compared to most SUV's. Can parallel park like it's nobody's business.
The plastic trip on my Sport faded with in a few years and takes quite a bit of manual labor to keep looking nice.
