Recently bought a new Grand Cherokee Overland. Love it, looks good, rides great! My wife got rear-ended by a Jeep last year, $8000 in damage to our car, barely a scratch on the Jeep. She said, "I want a Jeep" so I bought her a shiny Silver one!
I never considered a Jeep because I always thought they must be quite minimal - the Grand Cherokees are as luxury oriented as any vehicle I've owned.
Our daughter has a Jeep and she put 300,000 miles on it so far, she cleans the inside with a garden hose which may be why I have stayed away from them.
I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!
