While I realize most want a jeeps for Fun, I'm being realistic. 90% of the time it will be used for city driving, and I would prefer something that will be comfortable during the winter which can get pretty cold. 90% of the time it will be just me. The last 10 % will be weekend stuff and to be realistic I won't need Dune buggy or rock climber, I want to go to the Laurentians, and its back road which most of the time a normal car will do. I've already been in situations the I had to leave cars for 2 months until the weather gets better because it could not get threw the roads and tow truck would not come.
My ideal vehicle is 2 door 4 seat, not too big, but can squeeze extras in when needed in a crunch. I prefer the higher vantage point over a sedan and I like the space it give (I'm 6'2". The main reason I never got a car before was I really don't want to deal with Montreal winter snow, and want something that can just go threw it. Montreal gets 2-3 storms a year that drop around 2 feet. The fact I like the aesthetics of a wrangler is bonus.
I was hoping someone would be able to explain to me the benefits of a jeep, instead of just saying DON'T. While I like the concept of a removable top on maybe 2-3 weekends a year, I don't consider it worth daily troubles with de-thawing & scrapping it daily in the winter if it doesn't have a de-icer. I was hoping for smaller 2 door to save on Gas, versus 4 door which raises the gas mileage, but I don't think you can get 2 door 4 seats in any variation.
I'm just trying to make an educated decision.
