Debating a Jeep Wrangler, worried about maintenance and gas costs
I have always wanted a Jeep, I am ready to buy a car but want to know really how it will impact finances, gas wise and really if things really go wrong with them. I have heard they, being american made, dont last like say foreign cars. I am not sure how much I drive a month and I am going to be moving soon which makes it very unknown. I won't be doing any off roading, it will be for job and general driving which I know, is not what they were made for but I love them. I also have a miniature horse that I'd like to be able to have a vehicle that can tow a mini trailer in case of emergency and not relying on anyone. I am just trying to find out if it is a huge mistake. I will probably be getting a new 2013 2014 Jeep Wrangler the automatic not manual with a hard top. So it will have the warranty for 5 years and the 3 yr bumper to bumper which will pay for maintenance but after that is it a mistake? and I've seen that tires are 75 each does that sound right? I know Wranglers only get 17 mpg but I am not sure about how much it really costs to fill up or how quick I would go through a tank. Any ideas of costs gas maintenance etc would be helpful
