IMO I have went through vehicles consistently. 04 Jetta gli are lower control arms, the exhaust set up fell off at a light and traded it out in 6 months. Had my 07 Subaru legacy for 3 years, had a snow storm (read blizzard) and had the awd and transmission go south with 52k miles on it- the problem? Electronics no longer were "talking"- fix 2k because it wasn't covered under the "power train" warranty. Traded out to my 10 compass sport and I loved her til my trailhawk pulled up next to it. jeep has been the first make I've stuck with.
