Does anyone own a newer Jeep Wrangler? My wife really wants to get one, but I’m less enthusiastic about the idea. I admit that they look cool and fun, but I just picture an uncomfortably rough ride, clunky steering, costly to maintain, etc… I’ve never driven one, so I could be completely wrong?

Just for context, this would be our secondary vehicle, which we use mostly to run errands around town. We would rarely drive it more than 30 miles from home. It would be replacing our Nissan Rogue.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Yes. But mine only has 800 miles on it so I can’t speak to longevity issues. It’s the 3.0 liter 6 cylinder eco diesel so it will cost more to maintain over the vehicle life, but it should get good mileage. So far it rides and drives great, no worse than my car. It’s roomy enough my 6’3 hubby fits comfortably. We don’t have the liner to deaden sound on the roof panels yet but even without it’s not bad at all. This is my first one so I don’t really have a frame of reference on all the things that can go wrong, but I think the 2018+ models have been much more reliable.

If you’re just looking for a grocery getter, check out the electric model.

Yes, they are money pits, you can by an unimaginable amount of accessories.

Whatever you do, don’t go to Palmen motors in Kenosha WI. 😂😂😂

Go to Park Jeep and ask for a test drive….and if your wife comes with, bring your checkbook. :)
