I bought my Wrangler a few months (less than 4,000 miles) ago and love it. It's been everything I hoped it would be and more. It has been the most fun vehicle I've driven in a long time. Work is slowing down and with mixed messages, may be souring. The possibility of good fortune changing has me thinking (worrying) about the future. I would rather not face it but there may come a day when Big Red will have to go, better proactive than reactive.
Wranglers do seem to enjoy a good reputation for retaining resale value but so soon? I wonder how much of a bath I might take selling a 2011 now that the 2012 is available with the new engine and zero miles. Though mine is nice, with the heated leather seats, matching hardtop roof and Sahara package, though new - as in less than 4K on the clock is there even a market for new/used Jeeps of this vintage? Truth is, if the shoe was on the other foot, I'd be more inclined to buy the new jeep at the dealer than the new/used jeep from the stranger (me) down the street.
It is my hope that it dosen't come to this but very curious what the thoughts of the community might be.
