I've been visiting this site for the last month and I find it very informative, funny and just plain good reading. At this time I don't own a Jeep Wrangler. I only wanted one a few weeks ago and when I found this site it made me want one more. First, I tried to look up Metro Detroit dealers and how ppl were treated (buying experience to service) and I couldn't find a thread for that. The closest ones for me are: Parkway (in Clinton TWP.) and Mike Reihl (in Roseville) If anyone has experience with either dealership I appreciate the feedback.
Second, I found 2 used Wranglers: 2008Unlimited X Detonator Yellow w/38,000+ miles for $21,000 and the other 2007 2door Burgundy Rubicon with 87,0000 miles on it for the same price. Which one is the better deal? The Rubi's mileage is a big deter for me. I feel a vehicle should have about 15,000 miles or less per year (for the price they're selling it)
Finally, (I'm sorry) If I decide to look at this Unlimited how does it drive overall? I've read how ppl complain about the lack of punch in the powertrain but I test drove a 2011 2 door and it felt adequate for it's class but with the extra weight of the Unlimited does it feel sluggish for passing, making that quick left turn to avoid getting hit?
Thank-you for taking the time in reading this and giving me any feedback for a newbie.
