Best vehicle I have ever owned
Had to replace the radiator about 5K after acquisition.
I haven't seen a newer review here on the vehicle for quite some time now (years).
I bought this Jeep from a little Asian lady that drove it to work about an hour each way, by freeway. It was always garage kept and well maintained. I believe the vehicle has never been off-roaded (until me). It had 256K, with a thumping in the rear end (notorious on high mileage diffs in these), but was in most excellent condition inside and out.
When the radiator started to leak, it was not that bad, and could probably have been babied awhile longer, but I replaced it with an upgraded 3 row core and a new thermostat, and replaced the serpentine belt too. The Jeep has treated us great. Went on a 1000 mile round trip through Nor Cal with no issues whatsoever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
