    Betcha it’d cost me $100 or more, as I’d imagine it’s much more fun sideways

    I traded in my 2018 JKU Rubicon Recon for a 2019 Tacoma TRD Off-Road double cab.

    This was a very difficult decision for me, for this ends 30 continuous years of CDJ ownership. But nonstop quality gaffes and dealer issues left me no choice.

    I realize Tacoma and Gladiator are oranges and mandarines, but for the price of a bare bones Gladiator Sport soft top one gets a fully-equipped Tacoma 4x4 with off-road suspension with Bilstein shocks, a rear locker, Toyota’s unique off-road select system, All-Terrain tires with Kevlar sidewalls, heated leather seats, power moonroof, navigation, blind spot monitor, cross-path detection, parking assist, ACC, HID headlights, LEDs all around, and much more. Two years of free oil changes and tire rotations are included free of charge.

    I still have the Fiat Spider, so that still keeps me in the family.

    This is one of the trucks I test drove. If everything goes well, I should take delivery of a white one tomorrow.

    Congratulations! That’ll be a nice truck. Can’t beat all those features.

    I’ve postponed my purchase until next year to enjoy having my car paid off for a little while longer, but more than likely I’ll be buying something from Chevy.

    I know you are a car guy, but that Colorado Bison looks nice!

    Congratulations, Aldo !

    I've heard quite a few people say something to the effect : " I didn't leave them; they left me ". Owing to those customers sensing too few attempts to right some wrongs or to step up the game.

    Thank you!

    True. In my personal situation, I feel FCA left-ed me with its ever widening gulf between price and quality & service.

    FCA appears to operate under the impression that these three elements are separate. Or perhaps that adding features —which adds price— somehow compensates for the absence of quality & service.

    PS - I keep driving the 2018 Recon while the Toyota dealer gets my Tacoma shipped up here: I still can’t get over the amount of rattles, creaks, squeaks and groans a $52,000 Jeep with 8,400 miles can make. But then again, by 5,000 miles my 2016 Challenger Scat Pack was just as bad. And CDJR dealers just don’t even want to deal with any of it.

    Hey everyone would like to introduce two new members to family. First way in the background is my son's Dodge Dart and is very nice with the silver accents in the very black interior. Sporty looking with the black paint and mag rims but also love that she's a standard too.
    We recently lost our Grand Caravan while driving south from a vehicle losing their tire ..ouch .. No one was hurt Thank goodness
    So we have been car shopping and came across this 2014 Jeep Cherokee. My wife loves it, it's a "North" not quite sure how the models work but the heated seats and steering wheel are awesome. Has the 2.4 with 9 speed, hoping for some fuel mileage. The big bad Ram has company again.

    My last hot rod was a 66 coronet 500 with a tired 273 in it. I put a 360 with a 727 in it. I was very happy with it.

    Great cars everyone! So varied, a lot more than I would expect from a Chrysler website! But it's great to see the love and care everyone has in their rides.

    Nice classic Chrysler Mo Co vehicles you had/have. I also like your Regal. How is that car to drive in your opinion? (Try not to be too bias ;) I am legit curious for a family member. Has it been a good car?)
