2015 CC SL 4x4 - Lear Cap.
My girlfriend and I test drove the journey last month. It comes with a 4 speed automatic.... 4. Speed.Funny, and they also slam the Dodge Journey for being around since 2008.
personally, the only reasons to have a jeep is the wheelbase (which if you get a 4door an xTerra can match it, shame they discontinued them) popularity of aftermarket, popularity in general (over a dozen jeep/jeep only clubs in N.E. and if you show up with a non Wrangler or particularly a non-jeep you get baleful stares to outright run out on a rail)The lead engineer for the 3rd generation Tacoma came from Chrysler (Mike Sweers)
I won't comment any further.
Though that comment does indeed weigh in my decision between a new Frontier and a new Wrangler :crikey:
If I decide to get the Wrangler, I've already convinced myself to get the lifetime powertrain warranty.
I just traded in a 2008 Tundra with 92,500 miles on it mainly b/c both the front and rear differentials were shot. The cost to repair was astronomical. I'm still a little bitter at Toyota for under engineering the Tundra in terms of the guts. It's clearly Toyota Truck issue with differentials - Tundra and Tacoma.The massive Recall Over Rear Differentials isn't going to help that assessment.
Many of the owners over on TW are taking their trucks in for routine maintenance and being told they have to leave their vehicle due to it being "unsafe" to continue driving.
One owner had their differential seize up on the highway, almost causing an accident, and all of the White Knights on that site basically branded him a liar and a troll.
The redesigned Tacoma appears quite problematic.
To put it in perspective, a few vehicles that weren't crappy enough to make the list:
