Should I Buy KK?

Hi,
I have my eye on a 2008 KK CRD Limited. I Love it, but my family are telling me to stay well away from JEEP. I think they have heard stories of people who have had a jeep and its had a lot of problems. Please talk me into buying this car and okay you can be honest and tell me if youve had problems with the car. Cheers. Anita

I love my Jeep, its the greatest vehicle and even after 2 years i look forward to every day i drive it. Jeeps are dependable as long as you dont neglect them and take good care of them. Also its a Jeep, not a CAR
Also i would LOVE to have a CRD

I've now had my '09 KK for 1 week shy of 1 year and I love it. For me, it is the great balance between creature comforts with seating for 5 needed every week as well as internal hauling capability needed on occassion for various family / remodeling projects and then with a lift and good tires, it has some real off-road capability. I've really enjoyed learning about off-roading and working with my dad installing and creating various modifications, yet keeping it fully usable as my daily driver (especially in winter).

I have not had any mechanical or electrical problems of any sort, and that includes after taking it off-road harder than most probably do. No issues with the electronics (uConnect radio head unit, wireless bluetooth connection, GPS Nav, rear DVD headsets I had installed, etc.).

Assess your needs, if you really need a mini-van, then get a mini-van, if you want a really capable 4wd SUV that is a good balance between creature comforts and streetable manners versus true 4wd capabilities, then I am confident the KK is a great selection.

Nothing wrong with Jeeps. Every manufacturer has their problems now and again. Look at Toyota. Their reputation sure took a turn recently.

My brother drives a Wrangler, my dad has a '95 Cherokee, I've had 2 '98 Cherokees, and my wife has the '09 Liberty. Once you get one you'll be hooked. Go for it. They're fun.

I am guessing you are UK based - the car is not the issue its the dealers - they can be expensive compared to others.
What people do not appreciate with a jeep is its not a RAV4 or Honda CRV, these are just big cars - the Jeep is different in every way.
I have had my KJ CRD for 7 years now and not a problem and the KK is more refined but if all you are going to do is a school run and a bit of shopping then keep away as Jeeps perform best when they are really used. Every time I see one with issues they tend to be low milers which undertake short runs. They are great high milers and last time I saw there was a KJ on here with 350K and that was some time ago.
I personally would buy a KK, but its a bit hard to justify one when the KJ has nothing wrong, has had nothing go wrong and is built in such a way my two kids seem to use the interior as a trampoline without damaging it.

Hope you will be happy with your choice whatever it ends up being.
