Have wanted a Jeep for years, decades even, taking the plunge this spring (told my kids we would get one, so HAVE to follow thru now!)
B/c of aforementioned kids (and their mother), it must be a 4-door with A/T - and yes, I've read posts about the sometimes problematic A/T, and the allegations about unreliability of the JKs....
My questions - and please point me to other posts on these if they exist:
1. Can anyone recommend decent dealers in northeastern MA or southern NH? I see posts from dealer Pat in Indiana(?) and seems like good guy to deal with. Anybody like that around here? Also, any dealers to AVOID? (also, I haven't ruled out private sale for a used one)
2. The trim level differences? I like the black-coated fender look and practicality, but not the tiny wheels that often seen on those bodies. Is there a pattern, or is it just a matter of optioning at purchase.
3. Has anyone leased? I normally run from the idea, but would consider b/c mileage won't be high, limited off road usage, and if it's not as great as i hope, can walk away in 3 years.
TIA, and great forum here. Riley
