Jeep Hard Top Versus Jeep Soft Tops

Most Jeep owners with hard tops prefer to go without it in the summer. They actually have three choices and each choice has several pros and cons going for it.

1. Remove hardtop and place nothing on top of your Jeep – let us start with the pros. First, you do not spend on anything. You will likely enjoy the open-air feeling when driving your Jeep. You do not worry about fiddling with anything or setting up anything since you do not have a top. People will likely smile at you as you drive by because they are probably jealous.

Repost: 5 Used Cars to Avoid (and 5 Better Alternatives)

Even though auto manufacturers have greatly boosted quality and reliability, buying a used car can still be a process fraught with anxiety. In addition to worrying about the honesty of the seller, you also want to be sure to avoid vehicles with poor reliability records.

To help with that, MoneyWatch looked at owner surveys to see which cars look like trouble, focusing on five separate categories. We focused on 2008 models — the year ranked in the latest dependability study from J.D. Power and Associates. Buying a 3-year-old used car also lets you shop after the biggest new-car depreciation already has taken place: Because used car prices have risen so sharply this year, 1- and 2-year-old used models can make worse financial sense than buying new.

Here are our recommendations for used cars to avoid — plus some better ideas in the same categories. Volkswagen and Chrysler Group, which also makes Dodge and Jeep, both have two entries on our avoidance list. Continue reading
