Back in 2005, I bought a Jeep.
Adventure Jeep was lots of fun when I lived out west. When my computer crashed for the umpteenth time in a day, I would take a break and drive it into the canyons. I took it 10,000 feet up Mt. Blanca, no problem. Then I almost got it stuck much closer to home:
I thought I would sell it before grad school. Instead, I kept it because making car payments while earning poverty wages is clearly the smart move. I rarely used the 4WD in the Midwest since we don't have much public land or terrain to speak of, but it came in handy every once in a while. My first winter in Ohio, we had an epic snowfall during Spring Break, and it was only Jeeps, snowmobiles, and dudes on skis on the road.
I had bought an extended warranty back in 2005, fearing that it would break all the time, because Chrysler. It actually proved to be pretty reliable, and the only non-routine work it needed was a radiator, twice (but 10 years apart). In 11.5 years, I've only put 60,000 miles on it, which probably helped limit wear and tear.
Yesterday, I sold it to a young lady that had been looking for a Jeep just like mine. Apparently, Jeeps really hold their value. I saw lots of people on Craigslist selling their Wranglers for 50% over book value. I listed mine at book value, and got considerable interest. I probably could have gotten more money for it, but it would have taken more time. I'm moving to New York City in a couple weeks, so it had to go now.
Via con Dios, Adventure Jeep!
