    Not sure on sales, but I always go to Bournavil in Portsmouth for Service. I would definitely buy from them if I was in the market.

    Sorry to read that. Hope he is okay.

    Nope. The one I would have considered, if I had the money to loose by purchasing a brand new automobile, was bought out by another company, so I don't know now :/

    My advise is to save thousands of dollars by letting someone else take the initial depreciation, is to buy one at least two to three years old. Maybe up to five or six, with low miles.

    Wish him the best of luck!

    Why buy a Wrangler if you don't take the top and doors off?

    Nothing wrong with buying new. Do your homework, buy at the right time, buy a vehicle with a history of reliability, and keep it for 10 years or longer. Too bad Jeep doesn’t fall under reliable.

    Personally I go with certified pre-owned. Usually you get a better warranty and better pricing, plus they change everything over before selling it. So you usually get updated, tires, brakes etc...

    Usually a bit more expensive but a 100k warranty is worth it.

    Good to read
    If he does not mind higher mileage, check out Pittsford Automotive Center over in Rutland VT. They apparently know and like Jeep JK's, as they change ball joints on every one that they get in to sell ;)

    According to the experts, who I agree with, there is nothing wrong with buying new...if you have disposable income ;)

    Wranglers hold their value, so if you buy one 2-3 years old for a good deal(homework, right time, maintenance history), you don't need to keep them for ten years ;)

    Jeeps are still pretty reliable, if maintained. I am DD'ing a great running 3.8L now with 227k on the clock. And I have owned/drove a strong running 2.5L to 341k before selling. Plus many other 4.0L's with well over 200+k miles. All with their original power/drive train. It comes down to preventative measures, quality parts & fluids, and basic care--if there is any such thing nowadays(kind of like "common" sense, that is no longer "common" ;) YMMV

    When the so called experts and finance "gurus" say you should always buy lightly used their giving a blanket statement, (one shoe fits all). The lowest total cost of ownership over a 10 year period is buying new, simple, non-luxury, reliable brand. I bought new 11.5 years ago and changed the oil, filters, and tires is all. The factory recommendation for spark plug change is 120k.

    The bad heads on the 3.6 JK's have nothing to do with maintenance, I've changed enough of them. For every Jeep owner who say their Jeeps never gives them problems there will be 8 other Jeep owners that do, and many can't be blamed on lack of maintenance. We own Jeeps because we enjoy them and the lifestyle they bring not because their reliable.

    I "hear" ya. And true that all vehicles have their issues. That one was warrantied. Chrysler should have never changed the head design on those well proven Pentastars, but they did :(
    I have seen the 3.8L minivan engines die with ~118k. Then I have seen some go 300-400k+ :O

    Hillsboro Jeep got to within 0.5% of TrueCar pricing over email, at I think it was all email, and they also gave ENH space to park 20-30 rigs for a newbie run a few years back AND use their bathrooms. That where I bought ours!

    Insurance companies do suck like that, which is why they are some of the richest companies in the country :(

    I've been in the market as well. Thinking of selling my TJ to buy a 2013-2017 JK...something my family can actually fit it! I've been looking at dealers of course, but my trust factor there is very low. Private sales are always an option, but I keep seeing ads for Carvana. Played on their website and they have a 7 day no questions asked return. Anyone have any experience with them? Online reviews seem mostly positive....
