My fiancé and I have a 99 TJ 4.0 and an 08 Dodge Avenger. The Avenger keeps experience electronic throttle problems. It loses all throttle power and will only travel at idling speed and stays at 2000 RPM's. the first mechanic I went to said he couldn't exactly diagnose the problem and didn't want to start throwing parts at it. Since it doesn't do this all the time I'm figuring ill trade it in. I'm about $1200 upside down in this piece and want to trade it in. I'm thinking a mid size SUV or crossover. We are trying to pay for our Vegas wedding in October and have a give month old baby girl. Does anyone have an opinion on jeep compass or patriots? Any better suggestions for a less than $13000 used SUV that would be reliable and capable offroad for light family camping trails? Any suggestions or input is welcome.
