Question type: General

I live in New England, don't off road, but do travel to surrounding states often. Last two
vehicles were Subaru.

Don't expect that Jeep to be as reliable as your old Subarus- I would be afraid of engine failure in that model, especially if it has not been maintained properly by the previous owners-

5 recalls and 74 technical service bulletins and one Federal investigation

It's hard to say how long it will last. Jeep vehicles usually are below average in reliability. Repair costs will be more frequent. Used vehicles are always a gamble.

Thanks for your answers on the grand Cherokee - any thoughts on 05 Lexus RX 330?


Lexus would be much better choice, but consider a RX-350. They are newer and a better vehicle.
