2012 - year of the best Jeep yet!

I have owned and driven (and been driven by) Jeeps since 1977. I have loved everyone of them for different reasons.

They have all had their high points and low points (I call them warts) but so has every other vehicle I have ever owned since my first one (a 1958 Renault 4CV given to me for free) as well as Cadillacs, Fords, Chevy's, Dodges and Buicks but none of them made me smile every time I got in it like my Jeeps!

Don't let trolls, nay sayers, troglodytes, ludites or any other negative losers steal your joy!

Can I get an Amen?

Yeah, I've only had 5 since 1997 but they all were really good to me. I've had other vehicles since on and off but I always go back. Once you go Jeep, everything else puts you to sleep......

I had to pass 3 cars quick today to make an onramp in time and it was the first time I have ever floored the Jeep since I bought it 6 months ago. Holy crap this thing moves! It took off like a rocket ship when I floored it at 45mph and I was doing 60 just like that. This thing has ridiculous power compared to the old 3.8. I'm not so sure my 2011 civic SI could have taken my Jeep in that acceleration that I did today. In fact not sure at all. Best.Jeep.Motor.Ever.

Born and raised in Toledo myself. My brother works at the Wrangler plant and my Dad is at the Liberty plant next to it.

Lived the last two years in Raleigh, NC and just moved to Denver. I'm in Toledo often and was just there 6 weeks ago.

I miss Tony Packos and Ginos pizza.

I always tell my little bro that if I have any problems with my Jeep I'm blaming him!

At production time of my Jeep they were running two shifts and mine got made on 2nd shift. 1st shift has a higher quality record but no problems as of yet!

So, if mine was completed at 11:45 AM on Wednesday, July 20th, 2011, sounds like my odds are pretty good of getting a good one! ????

That's about perfect. Only caveat is there were labor/union disputes going on so I guess a lot of grumpy employees and my bro said quality deteriorated. I'll check with him on this.

And for the record when I saw quality I mean things didn't pass spec on the line and repairs had to made before leaving the plant. Everything is checked like 5x at least before leaving the plant.

Sad that the negative thread with a similar name has 167 post (so far) and this one that is meant to be positive has 24 (so far).

Kind of tells me one reason the main stream media remains popular.

Take that comment for what it is worth.

Not much reason to comment on the truth.

But, try to promulgate a slanderous falsehood about our Jeeps..... we'll be all over it!
