Hey guys. I am coming off of a lease of a 08 Pathfinder. I previously had a 03 PF. Before that I hadve a 00 JC and a 98 JGC.
I am looking for a vehicle to buy and keep/be reliable for the next 5-10 years. I had previous problems w/the jeep line w/the tranny needing replaced under 100,000 miles. So reliability is a bit concerning.
I am considering a Toyota 4Runner. There known reliability is comforting. I like the design. However, for being a new redesign in 2010, the truck seems way behind the new JGC.
I really like the style of the new JGC. Much more modern looking, with more modern options. Also like the option of the 5.8 Hemi. Also, it sounds like it is a much better on road vehicle w/o losing its off road abilities. For the price I can get more out of the JGC. Thinking about a base Limited w/V6 versus a Laredo X w/Hemi.
Also considering looking at the new Ford Explorer, however it seems to have been turned into a crossover vehicle.
If anybody can answer a few questions I would appreciate it.
1. How is the 5 speed tranny in the JGC. I understand it was in the previous version of the JGC. Is it reliable?
2. Can you get a Laredo X w/the Command roof?
Thanks for any answers or suggestions. Real nice forum here!
