Get a standard transmission.
That way shes preoccupied with driving instead of "texting and driving" or "eating and driving" and the list goes on. Good luck!

Just ask her what she want, simple answer. She will be the driver of the jeep not us.

I don't rock-crawl my jeep, but I do drive in snow 6 months of the year. Auto= Not good. Gimme a manual any day.

Several questions here. First off like so many of my jeepin buddies have said is to ask your daughter what she wants. If she is comfortable Learning to drive a stick and you are patient enough to teach her then go for it. I'm also assuming she or yourself won't be doing any offroading with this jeep. If you or your daughter plan on it then I say go for an auto. I have had both and each has their pros and cons but I have an auto now and would probably never go back unless I had to. Auto is great for wheelin and also for long drives and traffic. Either way your buying a jeep and the ride is not gonna be comfortable but like I said your buying a jeep and you can't go wrong with that!

When I asked her if she wanted to learn to drive a stick, she said "I don't care". Lol. I will probably get her an auto and teach her to drive a stick then when she graduates from high school, she can get what's best for her.. :-)

When I had a stick that was never a problem, I just got better at multi-tasking.

It's really not that hard to throw a shift with a cheeseburger in your hand lol.

HAHAHAHA. Second car was an I6 BMW M series manual that I bought and learned how to drive when I was in the Army stationed in Germany. I tell you what, by the end of my tour I was swinging donuts while drinking a milkshake!
