I bought mom a jeep a few years ago and it was the best decision ever for her. Living in Nebraska and Minnesota the remote start was a must. Dh has it on his car too and it’s saved us hours of scraping,  it’s worth it. My mom does all the regular maintenance on her car and takes good care of it so outside of tires and brake pads she hadn’t put a dime into it and she’s a hard driver. My advice is to get the bells and whistles especially if your going to have it for years.

My sister has a 2012 Jeep Liberty and has had nothing but problems with it. Every other week she’s bringing it in for something new. Luckily, everything has been covered by warranty so far, but it’s definitely not worth the hassle for them. I’ve always loved the look/feel of Jeeps, but after her experience, I will never buy one.

ChellFish22:  she has had a few recalls on the Jeep, nothing major, but make sure if you move you let them know where you move too. They are awesome about them and will even pick up the vehicle from her work and drop it back off when it’s done or send a car for her to drive the next day if she wants if it’s not.

I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee that I loved.  Loved. Except then the transmission failed.  And failed again.  Then the engine just completely STOPPED one day when I was on the interstate.  Oh and the power windows would just randomly fall inside the doors. 

Jeeps are notoriously unreliable and expensive to fix.  I would never buy one again – I poured so much money into fixing that thing!  We traded it in for a Hyundai Sonata and have never had so much as the slightest problem in 3 years.

When I was in the market for a new car back in 2011, I had originally wanted to buy a Jeep Compass. My then BF (now FI) told me under no circumstances should I buy one. They have one at the plant that he works at that had 7,000 miles on it and it was on its 3rd transmission. So, I bought a Honda instead and I LOVE it.

I have a 2012 Jeep Compass Latitude, and while it isn’t a terrible truck, I can’t say that I love it. It gets the job done, but it’s really loud and not all that comfortable. I have about 17,000 miles on it and it hasn’t had any problems besides a recall for seatbelts. Honestly, I think there are similar cars out there that are of better quality. 🙁

I love my Jeep Patriot!  But I got a killer deal on it and it is a thousand times better than the Toyota Yaris I was driving before, and it drives like a champ up here in Alaska with the ice and snow.  My brother has a 10-year-old Wrangler and hasn’t had one single issue with his.
