If people bought vehicles based on their realistic off-road needs, Jeep would have gone out of business decades ago.
If people bought anything based off of their realistic needs, predatory lending wouldn't exist in its current form.

Predatory capitalism?

It's all the same. Making the sheep buy things they don't need.

Meh. No vehicle is truly fixed. They are just inbetween states of needed repairs.

I want wheels on the ground driveable before I consider :plac: my nice daily for a dumb 30 year old Ford shitbox.

These are kind of cool though, good form factor, :manuel: probably pretty robust for not a ton of money.... they seem less impacted by crazy 4X4 values.

I figured they'd be 25-26k but there's just not many out there

300+ hp v6, AWD with rear slippy dif, nice interior. Neat car but a hard sell vs the Germans

Edit: seats have massage function too

Same as the old Opel insignia I think. It's Accord/Camry sized.

The 200S was an attractive car and had a nice exhaust burble fight me
