I traded my 09 Honda civic for an 08 wrangler. Gas mileage was cut literally in half but the pros outweigh the cons

Old Plymouth

I drove a 1991 Plymouth Laser since '98 up until last week, when I said my goodbyes and joined the real mans car club and bought a Jeep. Man am I glad I finally grew up.

Wrangler was my first car. '00 TJ, 2.5 liter, in the 200 miles I owned it for, it blew a head gasket, popped a hole in the radiator, blew the transmission, then had some girl pull out in front of me while I was doing 45, totaling it. That car was haunted.

4) 07 Jeep GC SRT-8 (another one of my favs)
5) 08 Volkswagen R32 (hated it)
6) 08 Mitsubishi Evo X (beastly 445 awhp)
7) 09 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Sport (loved it, just didn't need it anymore)

My list goes like this:

1988 Subaru GL wagon
2006 Subaru Impreza Wrx Limites
2004 Subaru Impreza Sti "Lots of stuff on mods, Was in love till D-Day"
2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport "Kinda on the fence on where to love it or just Meh"

2004 sti:


Was my pride and joy. Loved this car and will get an other in the near future. I'm just not going to go so over board with the mods next time...

2006 wrx:


This one died fairly stock. Crashed it into 2 trees and a Fj cruiser. I must say that the Fj lost the front end with my passenger doors. The passenger just got a scratch from the airbag when it deployed.

2011 jeep:


The jeep has had 1 recall and at about 1k miles it already has had the steering damper replaced. Don't know why, the dealer just replaced it when it went in for the recall...

First real car on my own was a '77 Fiat Spyder. Went through two versions of that until I gave up on having a car because I was living in NYC.
Got married and added a beater Volvo 750, then when the first little one came replaced that with a new Volvo '04 V70.
Needed a second car when we moved to Fl so got an old '92 Saab Conv and thats what I traded in for my JKU.
I will need to get another Fiat or Alpha at some point though.

2007 BMW 335i - twin turbo, tune, exhaust, intake

Absolutely loved it but I moved to Hawaii and it doesn't fit in where I live, plus crappy roads and more dirt/gravel roads called for an SUV. I figured I might as well get something I can enjoy Hawaii weather with!

I traded in a 2000 Ford Ranger 2x4 for my new Jeep. But I still have lots of cars, including an Audi S4, Porsche Boxster S, Mazda Miata, and '67 Mustang. Variety is the spice of life!
