A little sluggish in the mountains, but perfect for a slow life style.

Summary:

Jeep may have problems, but overall their cars are excellent

Faults:

I purchased the Jeep for $800.00.

The jeep has had a problem with a broken line from the hydraulic clutch. It was nigh on impossible to get a new line. I had to have it manufactured by a tractor company.

Anything that held fluid was leaking badly.

General Comments:

After fixing the obvious problems with the leaks and clutch line, the Jeep is a monster that was able to pull other cars out of fields that had gotten stuck.

Over 200,000 miles, and still going strong.
