Seeking opinions on 2007 generally plus versus 2011
I'm about to trade my 2011 JKU for a 2015 JKUWW any day now. Meantime, my nephew a couple thousand miles away is looking for his first car, a jeep. I offered mine to him (his parents!) at a good deal, of course, but he and dad are out looking locally.
They've found a 2007 wrangler. 2WD. over 100k miles. Priced about $17k. It passed the local used car dealer's "75 point inspection."
My sister called me wondering about the reliability of the 2007, but my knowledge there is limited. I did what I could (i.e it was the first year in the line, Chrysler versus true Jeep production, etc), but I seek opinions from the more knowledgeable on here.
Thanks for any comments!
(PS my 2011 has 53,300 miles but I bought a 100,000 mile warranty which is transferrable. It's 4WD, of course. It's not like they are comparing this 2007 against my jeep, but that comparison is one way to look at the problem. Another way is to simply analyze the 2007 on its own. Thoughts on either or both are appreciated.)
