First time new jeep buyer

I recently drove a 2012 Wrangler Unltd. and liked it. I'm thinking about buying one. My old minivan has 2 go. Have Two kids 9 and 7 yrs. I would use this new vehicle 50/50 city highway. Occasional off-road excursion.
Couple Q's:
Is there a rust issue on todays Jeeps?
Can you put a rack on the hard top roof?
Actual fuel mileage with Dodge's Pentastar engine?
Is there High $ regular maintenance for "on road" use?
Hidden costs that will disappoint after purchase? Wheel bearings, brakes etc.
Towing a 1200 lb trailer? Is the tow option just an expensive hitch?
Is the Rear seat adequate for kids / adults? Comments?
I would prefer to get the real scoop here before I go talk $$$$ with a sales dude.
Many thanks for your assistance. Great site! Forums are always the best place for research.
Cheers, Flhfxd
