If Gas Were $5.00 Would You Still Buy a WK2?
 
Just curious if the price of fuel would impact your purchase decision. I'm looking at replacements for my '07 Overland but I'm torn between something similar to what I have ('11 Overland) or something a bit smaller and more fuel efficient (Ford Edge AWD). I just wish Jeep had the 8 speed trans for the Hemi now. And now the talk of much higher fuel prices in the near future has me more perplexed.

I just saw on the news that $5.00 a gallon gas will be back within the next 14 months. Fantastic!!! Projections are that it will be worse then 07-08. I personally wont be purchasing a new rig anytime soon.

We have a Civic and the WK2. Just means driving the Civic more than I'd like.

I would still buy the WK2 because you cannot live your life based on "what ifs."

What is all this talk about $5/gallon gas? It's all over the news today. Who is predicting this and where are they getting their information?

Would still WK2. Everyone should have at least 1 4x4 vehicle. Besides my other car is acura RSX-typeS 4cly/6spd...very fun to buzz around town with...

I will factor in some "what ifs" on certain decisions but I try to keep them in perspective. And I rarely if ever take media hysteria into account.

As to the question of yea or nay on a WK2, I would still have purchased mine, although it would be fair for someone to say that now that it is a fait accompli, I have an incentive to validate my decision.

It's a simple matter of economics on one level: Can you afford to spend more for gas if the prices go up? Do you need a vehicle like this regardless of the cost to own it? (if the answer is yes, then the WK2 offers a solid value proposition at its price point compared to others in its class, although long term reliability is still TBD). This dilemma is similar to that caused by the RER/RHR uncertainty...when do you put present needs/desires ahead of future possibilities which you have no control over? You could wait forever.

Read the link below. It even has a nice picture of a new WK2 doing some light rock crawling:
