Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited
If you read the review in Consumer Reports, you would cross the Jeep Wrangler off your short list of potential vehicles. That is, until you look at resale value, owner loyalty, and driver satisfaction. Do not try to compare a Jeep to a Buick or a Lincoln, instead look at it for it's own merits. I've been driving Jeeps for 47 years, and there is no vehicle out there that compares. If you want a vehicle that rides comfortably, will go anywhere in any weather, and will make you feel young again, the Wrangler is perfect. Take the top off in the Summer and you have a fabulous 2 or 4 door convertible, unmatched by any other manufacturer. It has the aerodynamics of a box kite, the soft top can be finicky, and I sure do wish the gas mileage was better (it has improved a lot in 47 years), but I'll own one as long as I live.
