For a women's vehicle you saved money over the Bronco Sport . Now you own a fiat , my mechanic hates them because he says there are a ton of problems and he is a 5 Ace mechanic . Good luck with the Fiat jeep dude .
Never had any problems with my 2012 Rubicon. It was actually a fantastic vehicle. Had it for 6 years.

Also to be fair... 4runner is the opposite spectrum of not being impressed. But at least safer to drive.
Agree 100%. The 4Runner is an appliance. It’s a durable appliance with some half decent specs and absurd reliability but it’s not particularly fun or exciting.

Same here. I’ve driven my Jeep from 130k to 150k and all I’ve done is brakes, a radiator (could’ve just JB welded it honestly it was the smallest of pinhole leaks, but for $200 might as well just fix it right) and a $20 AC sensor. Runs like new except for an occasional stumble at idle, I’m 99% sure it just needs the throttle body cleaned. (I’ll get to it eventually...)

Calling it a Fiat is exactly the negative comments you see all the time on Jeep sites. I owned a 2018 JKU and my son owns a 2019 JLU...both are great vehicles with no issues (unlike the 1977 CJ7 I owned in the '80s. That year, jeep added AMC Jeep, GM and Ford parts to complete the builds. Every time I needed brakes, distributor, U-joint, you name it...I had to take the old part in to match with the new part.)

I love how so many people still bash how the 4dr Bronco looks even though 95% of us have never even seen one in person :ROFLMAO:

Those many people who do that are called "tools"....

At this point, I am operating under the assumption thatJune/July is pretty optimistic. She was in a Tesla that we’ve had for about 6 years and 116k miles and it was starting to have fairly expensive issues. I wanted to go ahead and get something. Was going to buy myself a Jeep while biding time for BMS and give her our other Tesla, but then the stop sale on manuals occurred. We test drove some Jeeps and she loved them. As for all of the flames, it’s all good. I am not sensitive. Currently have three Fords, two Jeeps (one is a ‘67), a Tesla, a VW, and a couple of Porsches. The Jeep has a warranty and she’ll want something else by the time it’s up anyway😆. If they hadn’t pushed ManSquatch back to 2022, I wouldn’t have bought the Jeep, but they did, so...
What's the "stop sale on manuals" you mention?

Jeep no longer offers the 6sp?

Congratulations, I know your wife will enjoy it. I bought a JLU Sahara in '19, and at 17K miles it's only been in for oil changes. I've found that many of the nay sayers haven't been in a Jeep for a long time, but seem to know everything about them. :)

I expect overall quality to be a bit better with the Bronco. Ford is still my favorite domestic brand, but I’m not going to limit myself out of loyalty to a company that doesn’t know I exist. So far, the Jeep is awesome. I can’t wait to compare the two. I took it out on a local trail today. Nothing very difficult, but the only thing really close.
