It's not a bad looking Jeep, I just don't like the tires/rims and bumpers.

I'm going to say it was one of the ugliest i've ever seen. Sorry guys. BTW am I the only one who hates it when someone puts "never been abused/offroad" in their ad on a Jeep? It's a *%$in Jeep. It's not abuse to take it offroad....

Check this one out. This guy claims that his Jeep gets 32MPG. Awesome, I would love to know his secret.

I'm assuming since this was your daughter's vehicle you did not drive it, so I will put it simply: It is not getting anywhere near 32 mpg. Try 25 at best if its a standard with the 2.5 driven like a grandma.

Just thought your ad should be a bit more realistic.

Yes. I'm not sure about you but I wouldn't want to buy a vehicle that has been abused or taken "off road". Should it say "Taken off road many times and abused, but I still want $12,000"?

HAHA, what you should have asked, if he was certain that it was his daughter and not his grandmother who claimed to have gotten 32mpg. It would have made it a little more believable. I doubt that it's ever going to get 25 either. I wonder what his response is going to be, or if he'll change the ad.

There is such a thing as not abusing a Jeep offroad. They are designed to be driven on several types off terrain and even have a factory fording rating. There are instructions on how to drive offroad in the manual. If I was buying a Wrangler i would expect that it had been offroad a few times and not abused.....

That's why I said "Taken off road AND abused". But if I was handing over that kind of money, I would prefer a Jeep that has been taken care of and not taken off road frequently.
