No dilemma here. My Jeeps were 1947 and 1977 but associates and family have and have had late models.Cross shopping between the 2013 Outback 3.6r and 2013 Jeep Wrangler (4 door). Both got their pros and cons. Anyone ever have this dilemma?
I always wanted a Rubi but Jeep would not budge on their price.. and used they still go for a Premium : (What an odd comparison. Talk about apples and oranges! Makes me wonder if you've test driven either one yet? After that, your pro-con list will be more useful. I have a good friend with a 4-door Rubicon and after a month or so, he bought an old Accord as a second vehicle DD because the Jeep is so rough and thirsty.
What is it with wildly different vehicle comparisons on this board lately?
"I can't decide between a 2013 Outback SAP or a rebuilt 1978 Blue Bird school bus. Can anyone help me compare them?"
"Got a good line on a 1996 Boeing 757-200, but I'm really thinking that an Outback in Satin White Pearl would do the trick. If not, maybe a 22' Chris Craft? Opinions?"
"My grandpa left me a functioning U-boat in his will, but I can't read german. Do you guys think I could hunt tankers and freighters in the North Atlantic if I strapped a couple torps to a Yak rack on a new Outback?"
They are too expencive for me for what we do to them, we drag them over rocks and in deep mud and replace most of the factory drivetrainWe actually had a 2009 Sahara we traded on our first OB. Loved the Jeep but my wife didn't want it as a daily driver anymore....The Subaru is a much more practical vehicle for her for everyday use.....BUT I did just pick up a high mile 2007 Unlimited as a 3rd vehicle....there IS something about a Jeep!
BTW, it has NOTHING to do with Jeep budging on price....consumers set resale values
The reason why Jeeps are so thirsty, surely because they are equipped with those silly non-adapted gasoline engines. Put torquey diesels in it and you get a decent all country vehicle with more mpg's, more reliable in off-road conditions.What an odd comparison. Talk about apples and oranges!
