I agree about reviews, people are more likely to write complaints vs compliments. However all the other SUVs I've looked at had very little consumer reviews (edmunds/cars etc) while the 14JGC had a bunch.
I know, it sucks to take the risk! I'm a HUGE BMW fan and really was looking at the X1, but I honestly didn't even bother to look at one in person. The reason why, is because while I love BMW, I feel like they are falling behind, especially in vehicle options. They just simply don't have what the other cars have. What I'm really pissed about though, is my $40k Jeep Limited doesn't have BASIC standard features like Xenon headlights and overall better quality/assembly. Far too many people have complained. I mean come on, my 12 year old MINI has auto-leveling Xenon headlights for crying out loud.
I also heard that Jeep doesn't provide you a loaner car if your vehicle is in for warranty? WHAT!? ANY MINI/BMW that goes in for warranty, you are provided an equivalent or similar loaner for free, no questions asked. We'll see how the "Jeep" experience turns out...
I've always secretly wanted a Jeep though, so I couldn't resist. I just hope I made the right choice! Leasing IMO, also made it easier, because I know I'm only in the car for 3 years. You might want to go that route too, just an option.
