If you are buying those cars listed brand new those are excellent cars to own! Used, however, I would look elsewhere. BMW's tend to run high maintanence bills over years of ownership and daily use. Wranglers are fun for a while, but ultimately will require time to fix up and repair. If I were you, I would look into a small pick up like a Tacoma. Safe, reliable, and rugged.


None of the above, look at Toyota, Acura, Lexus, Mazda or Honda for something safe and reliable. Jeep has many issues with their vehicles and BMW with out warranty will eat up your bank account.
