Low Barriers for Entry with Catches

by Sentosus from Newberry, SC | November 29, 2011

I see these vehicles in the hands of the wrong consumers frequently. They are great for off-road driving, local travel, and carrying many passengers. Just about all other uses results in the realization of the catches. These vehicles are cheap to purchase, but have extremely high maintenance costs. They are also unreliable and often mechanics are unavailable. The dealer network is also weak. The oil changes require a unique weight of oil that increases costs. The brake fluid is DOT4 fluid, so even that is specialized. The vehicle also requires tires that support its weight (~6000lbs), which increases costs and limits options. Ideally people purchasing this type of vehicle should go into the process well funded with a clear understanding of what they are getting. This is something I can't express enough.
