I like the looks of the Jeep 4-door with a few after market upgraded - nothing too over the top. But then I read the vehicle gets low marks, but then in other survey's I ready there is not better in its class.
Anyone have one of these for any length of time? How's the reliability?
I know it doesn't ride like a sedan, and I know it is noisey. Those things I don't care about, it's a Jeep. I want to know about reliability on electronics, mechanical, etc.
Reliable? Ha ha. My experience with Jeeps was watching a roommate. He bought a used one. Shortly afterward he bought another. He used the second one for parts to fix the first one. He had to fix his jeep so often that in the open parking lot he had an array of tools sitting outside next to where he parked. After a while his tools were stolen and as much as he liked the idea of driving a Jeep, he decided it just wasn't worth the hassle. He did manage to put up with it for half a year, so you have to give him credit for determination. Meanwhile, my Subaru, which I drove all over the mountains, never saw the inside of a repair shop.
