    Flip phones FTW. He can buy his own damn swipe phone.

    Jeep = Chrysler, = crappy electrics, crappy engines, and sitting on the side of the freeway.

    Dodge Charger = asshole driver, pretty much universally.

    And how the hell do Wranglers keep their value?

    Stay away, IMO.

    Fiat has always been known as a manufacturer of unreliable cars. Chrysler was always objectively measured as the worst US manufacturer in terms of quality and reliability. There's no argument that their products need plenty of repairs. That said, the Wrangler is iconic. It's a lousy FCA product, yeah, but it's still a Wrangler. It's the original Jeep. It can do things that no other vehicle can do.

    I'd buy an older Jeep and know full well that I'd have to fix a lot of stuff all the time. At least I wouldn't have paid a crap load of money up front, though.

    I have had 2 Grand Cherokees and 3 Wranglers and never had 1 problem with them.

    Maybe I have just have good luck with them. The one car in my life I wish I could have back is my 2004 Rubicon. It's one of the toughest stock Jeeps ever made.

    My HS friend's 1976 Cherokee Chief was indestructible, and that was saying something considering what he did to it. Everybody I know that's had a Jeep since then that was more than ~ 5 years old had nothing but problems and oil leaks, and then they got rid of it (them) when some electrical gremlin became irreparable.

    I knew a guy who had a 300 and I asked him how he liked it. He said, "It's great! I haven't had any oil leaks yet."

    You sold the Evo!? Wow.

    I have to say that I am really starting to like the new Wrangler. I wouldn't get the first year run of any FCA vehicle, though. I want Jen to get a Jeep but I think she has her heart set on a Lexus. I'd almost trade my Lexus to get her an NX and then trade her Mazda for a Wrangler. I like the idea of not caring about where I drive or in what weather. Still, the IS is a great car and I have expected to keep it for many years. I think what would put me over the edge is if I change jobs. The most likely place I would go doesn't have a decent place to park a Lexus and it's much farther from home. The Lexus does ok in the snow but a Jeep would be almost unstoppable. Every little scratch and nick in the Lexus irks me like crazy. I don't think I'd have the same worries with a Wrangler.

    I turn 40 next month , Im done shifting lol. I actually will make money on the Evo, I bought it at a good price and they hold value really well.

    I want to see what the turbo 4 does vs the V6 and I want a little more details on the diesel ( although I don't think they are putting it in the 2 door ) so I am going to wait until late 18 early 19.

    I may get a leftover 18 in 19 if they make no changes.

    Unlike my prior Wrangler though , this time I will get a hardtop. This model is easier to take it off and in the summer down here with the heat and rain, I want a hardtop. I will take it off in the winter.
