Jeep Sahara 4Dr Unlimited

I have had my Jeep for a month now and have been very happy with it. I had to order it blind as the dealer over here wouldn't get me one to test drive, so I was more than happy after seeing it.
A test can be read here

As with all Chrysler/Jeep products it will be great until you actually own it and drive it at which point it will NEVER work 100%.

Good luck!

I've had Jeeps for the past 12 years and have loved all of them...

Fair enough. Perhaps it's the lack of mileage that means they don't fall to bits.

Am a died in the wood landie fan, first car I ever drove at the age of 14 but have to say had a Jeep for 2 years and could not fault it.

Am looking at a pick up for my next car but would seriouly consider this Jeep now.

Cheers

Yes, my experience of Chrysler/Jeep ownership ended up in court and ties in somewhat with the findings of all the customer satisfaction surveys as to their build quality and reliability. Now have a VW Touareg which has not put a foot wrong and does everything with far more style, comfort and economically than the Jeeps.

I won by the way!

Chrysler/Jeep Customer Service - an oxymoron if ever there was one.

I'm guessing that as you are on the island your mileage is probably more limited and thus gives less chance for bits to fail. Mine certainly couldn't cope with circa 20k/annum.

Just out of interest the Sahara cost me 19550 with all options (not too many)
How much is a Touareg?
