I selected this Jeep because it gave my plenty of comfort, brown leather heated seats, storage space, plenty of technology like Sat Radio and GPS and had the ability to go off road yet be a comfortable drive on the highway. I would get the larger engine even though mileage is less. It's a small SUV so it's easy to park and easy to drive off road (fit in between trees). The new Jeep is called the ugly Jeep by some but those that own it love it.

I would not recommend this car to a friend because I find it hard to drive. It has larger blind spots than I realized when I test drove the car. A bigger issue is its reliability. It seems to have electronic issues. It's been in the shop 3 weeks out of the 14 that I have owned the car. If I hadn't bought the warranty, I would have been walking for those 3 weeks. The warranty entitles me to a loaner car when my car is in the shop, but it has sometimes been a hassle to get the loaner car. Eventually I get a loaner, but I traded in an 11 year old car because of dependability issues. At this point I miss my old car. I'm not sure I will be keeping this car very long, and I'm sure I'm going to be out quite a bit when I trade it.
This car is slow to accelerate and I believe transmission problems are impending. The transmission light has come on already at 4x,xxx miles. Took it to have it checked and ended up having to come out of pocket for a loaner vehicle as it was at the dealership for a week. The transmission light is off but it still hesitates while I'm driving and accelerates extremely slow. I am not at all happy with this vehicle that I will be paying on for quite sometime.
