Thinking about getting a car. Wrangler maybe, IDK? It’s snowed like 2 feet here in the last two weeks and not melted so snow ability is necessary. Probably only drive a couple times a week, and not that many miles. Grocery store, golf course, gym basically. Wife has an SUV, we’ve had one car between us for 6 years, but I’d like to get a second.

Every car has snow ability if you live in Chicago and have the right tires IMO. (Based on my time in west michigan owning two front wheel drive sedans)

Could be true. My experience is mostly seeing people constantly getting stuck in their street parking spots after the plows come through and pushing a foot and a half of snow against their left tires.

Uber, but for having someone else pick you up in their road condition-adequate car and take you where you have to go.

A Jeep is perfect for someone who only drives a couple times per week imo

That’s what I was thinking! If I drove 20 miles to work everyday I probably wouldn’t consider it

I got a rav4 a couple of years ago and love it.

- Not super expensive
- its a toyota so it's reliable as F
- AWD so no issue in snow/dirt roads
- Perfect size between a car and not a giant SUV or Truck

The dealership gave us a Bronco cup for placing our order.

The sales guys said there were 190k reservations.

My first car was a 1980 Pontiac Bonneville.  Loved that car.  Bench seat in the front and back.  Huge freakin boat.

I got it up to about 150,000 miles.  When I got rid of it, I was putting in 1 quart of oil per gas fillup.  Gas cap was behind the back license plate.

Great car.

Best friend in HS had a ‘79 and it was a monster. It sounded like a jet engine when you started it (no key required).

They sell build about 200k Jeep Wranglers a year.  The Bronco has 190k currently reserved and nobody has actually seen one in person yet.
