Smile New to forum

Hi I am new to forum. I'm from NSW, Australia. I hope it's OK to join as I haven't purchased a jeep yet. I am looking for one for my daughter actually, she will get her licence soon. She's dead set on a soft top so the jeep looks like a good one. I have to admit I haven't even test driven one yet? Is everyone happy with how it handles. Does it go alright on normal roads? The only thing is I want an automatic one and don't want to pay over $10,000 Australian for it. I thought about a 2000 model if I get lucky. Any more hints would be great. Donna

Howdy and welcome aboard.

This is a great place with great folks.

Kick back and enjoy the ride.

As for your daughters dream...if a soft top is what she's wanting...I cant imagine one safer than with a roll-cage ....thus a JEEP.

They are safe. But like any vehicle it can have its quirks. You gotta respect its strengths and weaknesses.

Your biggest worry....fighting all those guys off.

Nothing hotter than a chick in a jeep....and Im pretty sure thats true on any contenent.

Have fun.
