I know, although I'm starting to wonder if they might be right
People keep telling me Jeeps break regardless of off road use. Scaring me.
Jeeps aren't dependable over the long haul. I've never been a big fan of "mid-size" or small trucks... I like full size if I'm going to get a truck. I lean towards a Chevy because that's all I've owned and they've always been very dependable for many years.
I've never owned a Toyota, but I have quite a few friends who do. One is still driving his 1985 SR5 he got when we graduated high school, and it's still very dependable. So, even though I'm a chevy man, from your list I'd go with the Toyota. They look nice, are dependable and should be more than enough truck for what you're wanting to do. I like the Colorado (I test drove one a while back). They're very nice inside. They have one that has a small diesel motor; it's a little beast.
I didn’t know they had one in diesel. Kinda cool
My brother has a Colorado. When it needed a new timing chain the repair cost was $3200.
What year is his? These later Colorado's have different engines (actually, the same V6 that my 2015 Camaro has in it). Those previous ones have either an inline 5 cylinder or a 4 cylinder. And... to be fair, almost any vehicle you buy today is going to hit your wallet pretty hard for a timing chain repair.
I thinks it's a 2009. I know it's a 4 cylinder. I know it's a big job but $1000 seems like it would be about the right price.
Yea. I'm actually going to use this thing for off road trails. Test driving the Chevy again.
They have one with the diesel on the lot. Lots of torque from the stats. Interested to see how it drives.
Thanks for the input.
My youngest daughter has a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It has been in our family since new. Mechanically, it has had almost zero work done in 20 years. The Jeep inline 6's are some of the most reliable engines ever made.
You must have gotten a reverse lemon.
