looking to buy but have a few questions
hello, new to the site, been reading some post and I have a few questions.
first off, like anything I buy I always find out I could have made a better decision on that certain vehicle...lol par for the course I guess.
well we need to start some where so here we go!
2010 new sport 2 dr 4x4 MSRP is 22,000 and some change, auto no power or cruise soft top and 3.73 gears and I saw no mention on the sticker of a limited slip rear.... with that said its pretty bare bones.
the unlimited version does have limited slip and of course a few more things like power and cruise, but its 26,000 to 28,000.
the Rubi is out of my price range.
Now, here's my thought on picking a jeep;
cruise can be added cheap! and the 8,000 dollars difference in the price of the limited could be used to add free spinning hubs to save fuel and adding lockers front and rear and some other cool stuff, 8 grand could go a long way in putting the sport where it needs to be.
PROBLEMS I've read about on this site...
I want a 6 speed but have read about them Joging out of gear and having to fight with Jeep to fix it, some have had luck and some not.
are there any problems with the autos over heating?
water getting in the air breather box and hydrolocking the engine, I find this odd for a vehichle that jeep advertises to go off road, but anyway, is there a solution other than a snorkle?
what would some of you suggest than own the new jeep now? likes and dislikes, what would you do different now and so on.
