So, I admit I have a problem - for close to 20 years I have wanted a Jeep. But little things like money, kids, etc., keep getting in the way. And, I don’t need a Jeep (or any SUV) for that matter - I don’t off-road; I lose only several days a year to snow; and I don’t haul enough often enough to need a truck. And my 12-year old Toyota is running smoother than many of the new cars I rent from time-to-time.
But I want a Jeep. Or something new (really, used).
Please, help me: what delivers everyday use road quality (I commute about 30 miles daily); 4WD or AWD (for those couple of weeks we have snow, or days where I am really trapped at the top of hill (front end loaders have gotten stuck trying to plow)); good ground clearance and decent versatility for cargo?
I know I have a problem, but I won’t hold anyone accountable as an enabler if you help me.
