    and Grand Wagoneers

    as a second car for myself.

    Get a Wagoneer only if you have a tolerance for bad cold starts, idling, running, rust, water leaks, electrical gremlins, creaking interior panels, and 11mpg.

    :werd: I love them.

    However, I don't want a problem vehicle. I need something reliable, obviously, since I'm not buying new. My current car doesn't have a warranty, and neither would the Jeep. I don't want a new one. I dont' want to spend more than 5K on it. Tops.

    I'm also considering selling my car outright, (I think I could get about 8K for it) and then purchasing a Jeep, so it'd be my ONLY vehicle.

    I love my car, but I need to get out of this sports car. Not just because of the fact that I have two dogs that don't fit comfortably in my car, but I'm sick and tired of hitting all the god damn pot holes. :( I can't afford to keep replacing tires, wheels, and shocks.

    I hate the Liberty, and while I'd love a Wrangler, it's a little small for my needs.

    The Wagoneer my father had was reliable, it just always had something wrong with it. Nothing that would leave you stranded though.

    The cherokee would probably be your best bet.

    :) I want to get around in shitty weather conditions. And I want to get around in the summer when we go up north, and I'll need something that accomodates jetskis, dogs and camping gear. And I'd prefer to look good doing it. :o For under 5K

    Well, if I sold my current car, and bought what I'm looking for, I would be done with car payments within a years time, and then I wouldn't be about fixing my car.

    As it is, I have a car payment AND I still have to pay to fix it.

    I'd love one, but I need more room for the doggies!!

    I'd love an old Tahoe/Blazer, but those are gas hogs too.

    I'd love to go buy brand new, and not worry about problems... but I'd hate the car payment. :hs:
