I got my Mini Countryman new in 2015 and I just loved it and I still do, fast forward to now 2018 I have a 1yr old baby and every time I get him out of the car seat he is drench in sweat even though I am freezing with a full AC blowing, I always wonder why is he sweating when I am freezing... Well, the reason why is because there are no vents in the back seat of the countryman and air can't get to him, and I just thought he was a hot sweaty baby. No wonder he hates it when I try to but him on the car seat, he also hates it when the windows are down just a little while driving. Since discovering this BAD engineering in the countryman I have place a fan so, my baby is always comfortable and I am currently looking into trading it in my country man for a car that has vents in the back seats . :-(
We bought a used Jeep Wrangler for my girlfriend, and she has had a smile on her face since that day. The only negative I can think of is the speaker system. It's a little underwhelming, but we plan on getting a custom system installed.
I have twice been stranded due to the shifter not coming out of Neutral. Can't go forward or reverse. This is a big dependability problem!
Also, the non-leather seats have worked on destroying themselves with little cupped cuts (not due to anything in or on my pants, just fatigued and marginal material. I'd much rather have normal leather wear with the fold lines, etc. that appear over time in some vehicles.
Electronic parking brake very loud. I test drove other new, and they were all the same, annoying. Navigation voice recognition is marginal...takes a lot of repeating. Running boards are more of a problem than help. PS, High towing capability...and I personally like the way the rear seats folded down. All reviewers complain as "old school design" but, it allows folded rear seat backs to be flat and it protects the backs of the front seats from shifting cargo.
Hands down, there is no other Full size SUV like the GNC Yukon "Denali", not even Cadillac, let alone chevy low end Tahoe and Suburban. GMC IS, PROFESSIONAL GRADE. Real Leather, Real Wood, not plastic and real metal on the dash. Won't find that in Chevy. Looking forward to my next one.
Primary purpose of the purchase was the pure joy of owning a jeep and the variety of places it can take you. My dad works on his tree farm, so he frequently goes off road with this vehicle. It is a 6-speed manual. It's best with the top down, obviously. I enjoyed so many long summer drives in this vehicle. A bit loud inside and bouncy too. Although, bringing it out the mountains in CO was'nt the jeeps forte. The short wheel base can make the vehicle fishtail more often. The acceleration was definitley lackluster. The gas mileage was not so impressive; it is shaped like a box afterall. But now the jeep lives in Florida where it can be fully appreciated all year!
I've owned many German brands but this is the best performer I've ever driven. Sweet sound, head-turning looks, awesome torque and HP, so fun to drive! It can be a challenge exiting due to low profile and the backseats aren't made for adults, but the drivers seat is as perfect as you could hope for...and the droptop is an added thrill
We had a great experience trading in our Subaru Outback at Groove Subaru Silverthorne with Garret. He was friendly, straight forward, and thorough. We did have to wait a bit longer than expected for a few small hang ups, but Garret kept us in the know and ultimately provided excellent customer service.

Imprecise steering, especially bad at highway speeds, needs constant correction. Stiff, at times jarring ride around town. Awful entertainment system, radio and navigation cannot be turned off only turned down until car is restarted. Ready to cancel lease and walk away from $3000 down payment less than 2 months into lease.
Our experience with Garret was smooth and seemlessly effortless. Garret came highly recommended and for good reason. He walked us through every step of the purchase of our 2018 Subaru Outback and we couldn’t be happier.
Love my Outback!

My Outback is very comfortable and convenient, and has all the bells and whistles I need. It is very reliable and goes through all kinds of weather. The drive is quiet and smooth, and my 2 golden retrievers fit in the back.
Jim was awesome even though he is a xxxxxx he’s my kind of xxxxxx
Keep up the good work Jim your a good dude

The truck is comfortable to ride in and fun to drive. The interior is well thought out. The body style is pleasing to the eye IMO. Wish RAM had offered the quad cab with the longer bed in 2017, they do now.
