I truely believe i'll love mine just as much 20 years from now. The only question is, will it hold up? I do trails but nothing to serious, I anticipate only normal wear and tear over the years. With scheduled maintanence, and just the right amount of TLC, how long do you think I'll be able to keep my Jeep? (forever is an acceptable answer btw)
You can pretty much keep any vehicle running indefinitely. It's just a matter of how much time and money you're willing to keep pumping into it. I've run cars half a million miles.
I plan on keeping mine a good long while. I like it, have a history of hanging onto my vehicles, and take good care of them.
Mine is also a 2014. I purchased the lifetime MaxCare warranty for it. I think in the long run, it'll prove to be a wise investment. If you really
plan on hanging on to your Jeep, you might want to consider the lifetime warranty. And there are one or two gentlemen on the forum who can give you a decent deal on the warranty.
The downside is if you plan on modding your Jeep. Mods give the dealers/manufacturers an out when it come time for repairs. The more mods, the more an extended warranty may be affected. I say may cause you won't know until it's time to use it. There don't appear to be any hard and fast rules with mods and warranties. It seems to be up to how the dealer/manufacturer feels that particular day.
