Hola amigos and amigas - I just joined the forum after test driving a Jeep KL Cherokee Trailhawk just the other day.

I have been researching vehicles for years - for fun (as a car/truck geek) and in anticipation of the day I sell away my trusty '98 Toyota Tacoma TRD that I have owned for 15 years. These days the Tacoma mostly sitsidle beside the more frequently used '10 Subaru Outback. I had not considered getting rid of the Tacoma until we had a child. The Tacoma is not kid friendly option for transportation.

So, now that I am family man I need a new vehicle soon - a vehicle that is rugged, with four doors and efficient. We live in Helena Montana where driving 100 miles to the next town is normal, and the roads to get there can be rough, unpaved and unplowed! The tails into the mountains are usually pretty rough too - so having the ability to go into 4-wheel low is sometimes necessary. Montana requires vehicle that strikes the perfect balance of ruggedness and capability with efficiency - a balance that, as you know, is very difficult to find.

In my research I have become intrigued with the offerings from Jeep. I was lead to the Jeep brand with the hype and anticipation of the new Renegade TrailHawk CUV, but after spending some time behind the wheel of a new KL Cherokee Trailhawk, I do not think I can go smaller than a mid-size rig. I am also considering a WK2 Grand Cherokee.

Having very few issues with my Tacoma for 15 years has spoiled me. My only fear with Jeep is reliability - however with the help and knowledge of the fine folks on this forum I hope to get the truth about these vehicles. Thanks in advance and
