    So I found another Grand Cherokee. Decent price. I loved mine when I had it. Body is in good condition, the guy says it runs and drives good.

    Should I get it?

    hmm, I can't find a CRX in my price range. But I'll keep looking. I dunno if the guy even still has this Jeep.

    Life is too short for crappy cars, but life is also too short for brand loyalty. Try different cars.

    Even Ford Taurii have benefits (Like you can park in front of someone and they'll trip over it)

    My mom has a GC and my in-laws had one. Both were piles of shit. The older jeeps that had the 4.0L straight six, those were tanks.

    No I'm asking for opinions. I' personally like them. I had a decent one, then again some really are a pile of shit.

    Make sure it's a manual tranny though. My family inherited my grandfather's barely-driven 97 S-10, like seriously three thousand miles on it, and the auto tranny took a dump and cost 2 grand to replace. I don't know what the deal with those was, but some GM auto trannies are just piles of crap...

    The S10 is a 5 speed.

    I can't move til the end of this year, so I need a project or something to keep me occupied and out of trouble in my free time.
