I'm proud to be an early adopter...

i've read a lot of negative posts about buying a JK due to this being the first production year. for example " i would never buy a first year production vehicle of any kind, way too many bugs " or " i'm not going to be a beta tester ". you've all seen posts like this too i'm sure.

well i'm here to say that i gladly buy new interesting toys WHEN they hit the market, not a year or two later. this goes for electronics, vehicles and sports equipment. i'm naturally impatient ( if i'd wanted patients i would have become a Doctor ) and impulsive. have i ever had a problem with some new toy i've purchased? of course i have ( i bought an Xbox 360 on launch day and i am now on my fourth one - thanks EB warranty ), but that won't stop me from buying the next new toy.


my JK is the best vehicle i've ever owned, and my last truck was a 4Runner so thats saying a lot. i have zero regrets. if you want a new Jeep, go get one. i doubt that you'll regret it either.

That's just fine for you If you don't have a problem wiht having early bugs fixed then I don't blame you for getting one. Me i'd rather wait and see what happens. Rather not deal with the hassle of for example having 3 xbox's break on me.

Never been one of the "I gotta have what no one else has" crowd myself - but more power to you I guess.

Every new car I've bought has been a first year model, the only car that wasn't gave me more problems than all the others combined. I understand the idea behind why a first year model would give you more problems, but is there any actual data backing this up?

This really isn't a First year model though, thechnically. It is simply a new generation. Yes, there are many changes in this particular generation, but it is still a Wrangler - and with a tried and tru motor that has been used for years as well. It would be different if it were a first year Nitro or something.

Of course there will be bugs, but not as bad a a true first-year vehicle. I love mine and was not scared to buy it at all.

I bought the last model year of a LR Discovery....they came out with the LR3 the next year and discontinued discovery after many, many years.

The thing has had nothing but problems. Can't wait for the new Jeep.
