    Default In the Market for a new car......errr... Jeep?!

    So last november I was hit by an 18 yo girl and totaled my Honda commuter car.... I wasn't going to buy a replacement car until fall but some Chrysler offers have got me thinking.

    1st is that Chrysler is offering a lifetime full warranty on the drivetrain for as long as you own your vehicle. Pretty sweet coverage.....

    Then today they announced $3.00 gasoline for 3years up to 700 gallons annually.

    So I was thinking of getting a Jeep Compass as a commuter car... anyone ever dealt with one of these?

    My brother in law has one. If you do for some reason get one of these things, get the rally edition. They look a lot sweeter. My brother in law has a normal one with some nice add ons. Not a lot of power in the 4 banger, but he laughed when I told him my gas mileage. I would consider the rally edition for sure.

    I am too stubborn / stupid to get a DD that gets good gas mileage.
