I have a neighbor who drives a Kia Sephia and there was one week that we had almost 2 feet of snow that I had to tow him home with the Subaru, his Kia wouldn't make it up the hill, even with winter tires. I think the G8 is a great high performance sedan, one of the best that Pontiac came up with recently. Since they're killing Pontiac they should re-badge that as Impala SS or some other Chevy legacy sports sedan name. But that's another story and this thread is about Jeeps...
Thats another story and this thread is about jeeps...please tell me more about your Subaru

THANK YOU...the point I have been trying to make from the beginning, now the rest of you italian pole smoking mini lovers read what this man just wrote, and then go back into a real jeep thread.

I swear, I could put the Jeep badge on a Hyundai Elantra and you all would find some way to love it as if it werent a *ucking Elantra

From Top Gear, "The 1.2-litre 4x4 takes a full 20 seconds to get to 60mph and the 100HP half that." Ouch!

If they can bring in under $12K it could be kind of modern day Suzuki Samurai.

That would be an awesome trip. To be honest I'm a little jealous.


To the Jeep driving members:
Just out of curiosity are there any Jeep clubs that do this kind of trip? I'd love to see some pics.

But no each one is special and each one I would take offsense to someone insulting.
I have stared at this post for approximately 6 minutes and I am still having trouble understanding the message you have attempted to convey...

YJPirate said: “Looks like an embarrassment to the Jeep name.”

I couldn’t agree more. But if you think that’s bad, I saw a picture of one in the Parts Dept. of my Jeep dealer about a month ago that had no top and looked more like a sports car than a Jeep. Now THAT was an embarrassment! I wish I could find a picture of it. I sure hope they never make it.

As for the Compass and Patriot “Going away” as Firekite said, my dealer said something about that when I bought mine. He said the reason was that the company felt they never caught on enough. I guess time will tell. If it stays or if it goes, I’m still happy I bought mine!

I wonder what the Abarth version of that would look like? Unfortunatly I dont think anything badged with Abarth had over 2" ground clearance.

Least it keeps up the Jeep performance standard:

PERFORMANCE

0 to 60 MPH (secs) • 15
Top speed (MPH) • 93

My compass is my street jeep. it is the 4th jeep I have owned and I am sorry to say that I even own a TJ because I dont want to be associated with wrangler jerks like you.

I love all 4 of my jeeps the same if I could afford it I buy a 5th but insurance on 4 is steep enough .
Seriously, the compass is not that great. I know they are street rides, but when someone says "Jeep" most people probably think about the newer years now. The only think they make good nowadays is the wrangler and maybe the liberty. Everything I see on the newer models are plastic now. The good days where everything was solid seems to be gone...

Don't like the panda but Jeep NEEDS a small 4x4. Something with a 4 cylinder and knobbly tires close to the front and rear. Like the WILLIES.
