I would never buy a jeep later than 1990, had an '89 with a 354 that was awesome, my girl now has a 2006 jeep with only 80k, routine maintenance and still has nothing but problems! Together in 3 months we have dumped 4k in the pos, 2 airtechs fuel pumps (filter kept going bad because it's all one assembly, hoses cracked) ac pulley went out without warning on highway, shredded belt so imagine going 80 mph and loose your power steering... Struts blew... List goes on, please do not but jeep...

No no there are but gts in America are the price of v6s here, a couple more grand and I'd get a gt here but I'd save more money by importing one.

After a quick search like 7-10k for a v6, and 8-12k for a gt, some cheaper for both.

Re: First car, first post

The average price for a 99-04 GT is about $6500-$10,000 depending on condition, year and mileage. The V6 cars range from about $3K to $5K, depending on the same. I got lucky with my g/f's 2002 GT at $3700 which was a steal!

Re: First car, first post

I have an agreed value policy on my Cobra and it will be stored in the winter, so the price for that insurance is cheaper and limited on mileage, because it will only be driven in nice weather, or to and from shows.
My Contour is only about $30 a month, because my g/f isnt on it, and I'm older and I have no accidents or serious tickets.
Now, my g/f pays about $150 a month for liability only on her 02 GT. She is 18, and this is her first car.
Gas is hovering close to the $3 a gallon mark here though, but I know its more for you guys.
