I do not currently own a vehicle, nor have I in the past. That being stated, I really want to buy a jeep. I really like the look of them, specifically the Wrangler Unlimited series. I find the normal Wranglers a little too small for my liking. The trouble is, my first vehicle is going to have to be used and I have heard Jeeps are very nice but pricey.

I have a Jeep Liberty. If I got another one, it would be the Wrangler with the hard case. Jeeps have changed and not for the better. They got rid of some of the bigger models and came out with some cheapies (around $20,000 or less) that I wouldn't be interested in. They kept the Cherokee, but the headlights are weird - Jeeps have always been known for their round headlights. My Liberty model was the last in that series to have the round headlamps. Jeep also is made outside the US now. They just can't leave a good thing alone. I'm keeping my Jeep as long as possible - there is no model that I'd rather have at this time.

I like Jeeps, but don’t own one. I would like a Rubicon for extended off road travel. But I will never buy one due to the insane prices and questionable reliability… Jeeps use to be simple, reliable, and affordable.

Well, that is depressing. I guess I might just buy a truck instead.

My 2000 black-on-black-on-black Jeep Wrangler Sport looked like a Borg Cube. Vanity license plate: DRAVEN.

While I wish I still owned it, it is probably better I remember it in mint condition. :wink:

Jeeps blow and suck simultaneously.

MUCH prefer Land Rovers. It's managed to keep an almost constant design for over 50 years. None of the shiny modern stuff for me :)
