Considering buying a Jeep ? Read this first.
Jeeps are really great vehicles for a family all around. They are super fun to ride around in and you can continuously take them apart and put them back together just like legos. Overall if you maintain your Jeep you shouldn't see many problems. If you purchase a Jeep with a soft top, your ride around town will be very noisy, especially once you get on the freeway, but if you purchase a Jeep with a hard top it's just like any other car sound wise. They ride kind of rough compared to most cars but that is something they are built to do since they are offloading vehicles. If you take your Jeep offloading often it is important to keep an eye on things to ensure that everything is still in place and nothing was knocked loose. The seats overall are pretty comfortable, however in a two door Jeep the backseat is very cramped and not easy for access if you have small children that require car seats and the trunk space of the two door is also very limited. In a four door the backseat area is very spacious and easy to have access too and there is plenty of trunk space for groceries or whatever you may need to put back there. In terms of taking the top off, both ways can be pretty tough, but newer Jeep models have made it to where it is easier to remove the top. A hard top you typically have three pieces to remove which you just unclip and store in a safe place and a soft top you have to remove the three plastic windows in the back and unclip the front and push it all the way back until it lays flat. Jeep s are not the best vehicles if you are looking for good gas mileage, but what they do get is pretty decent compared to how bad some other cars can be. The older Jeeps like mine do not have as many features as the newer ones do today, but you can easily add whatever you want to them.
