    Consumer Reports recently trashed the Wrangler. It got some of the lowest scores of any vehicle they tested. But CR has always had a blatantly obvious bias against serious trucks and SUVs, so that's no surprise. ("The Ford F-250 rode like a truck." No sh*t?) The only category that seemed to carry any weight as far as I was concerned was long braking distances.

    I don't care for the latest styling quite as much as the last model (...through '06) BUT I STILL WANT ONE! Can't decide between the space for stuff in the Unlimited and the original look and maneuverability of the two-door.

    I had a new jeep gladiator pickup. Overhead cam 6cyl leaked oil and poor fuel mileage. Just not what I had expected from a new vehicle. 2001 my daughter and son in law bought a new Jeep Cherokee. 6 cylinder with a 5 speed. It now has 214k and no major issues. Sure is different than the one I had.

    You have a great looking jeep. Hope it brings you many years of trouble free enjoyment.
