Should I buy a jeep?

So I’ve been interested in a rubicon hard rock jk 2015... the only reason I have been considering it is because it’s yellow, and I was wondering if that’s a good color for a wrangler or not

I could say something like, So out of all you could question/worry about, you chose color. Are you serious.

Do you want us to say, yellow jeeps last forever, or only need an oil change once every 5 years.

Or

Yellow jeeps break down every two weeks and have terrible gas mileage.

I see it's your first post, so I won't say the above and just say, buy whatever color makes you happy.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.

The question is not should I buy 'A' Jeep, it is how many Jeeps should I buy.

Do you like the yellow?

That is the only thing that matters unless you end up not liking a Jeep and sell it off quickly. If that happens, yellow may put off a potential buyer.

I happen to think that the yellow , done right, looks sharp.

Yellow is scientifically proven to get worse fuel economy, have more premature drive-line failures and a much higher case of electrical component failures.

You should look for a powder blue Prius.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

It's widely known that yellow gives you the most horsepower out of all the colours... maybe that explains the worse fuel economy and driveline failures.

Just get it covered in mud. Nobody will know what color it is then.

If a boat is a hole in the water that you throw money in, then a Jeep is a chuckhole in the road serving the same purpose.

So many variables.

In the end, its a vehicle so likely you will be buying something that depreciates the second you take ownership. Great thing about Jeeps is there rate of depreciation is very minimal compared to most vehicles.

Color comes down 100% personal opinion.

Jeeps are great vehicles, lots of fun, and yes can turn into money pits instantly.

Do you want a fun offroad vehicle? Then buy a jeep..... Are you looking for affordable (very subjective), reliable, and efficient transportation???? Maybe a Jeep isnt the right choice.... But all that said, you can really trick out a yellow jeep... Its an aggressive color and with the right mods and color scheme can really look good. But I am a Jeep guy so any color Jeep is cool in my mind!

Should have gotten a tetanus shot with this jeep!
