So i want to trade in my '06 Fusion for a Jeep. I live in NE so the 4x4 is a huge plus b/c of the winter time. I'm also used to driving my old Tahoe, and would like some steel around me...THis is the first winter where it's been pretty bad in New England, and I slid off the road into the show bank ONCE going around 20mph, and slide a good 20 feet into the back of an Explorer in a parking lot...not the best first real winter with my car. I'm currently commuting 120miles round trip from work, all highway, but am looking to move closer (cut the trip down to 20 miles) I know the Patriot gets 24mpg, my fusion gets 22, and i read the Wranglers get around 19. I also read the 2007-2008 Wranglers handle a lot better on the highways...but am not sure. My Best friend has a 98' Wrangler and seeing it daily makes me want one MOREEE (i wanted one when i was shopping for the fusion) I'd love to have it when i go camping during the summer (usually go quite a bit) and could occasionally go (slight) off-roading, and mudding w/ him Some stats... i'm 25, make around 39K and live at home. I currently owe $16k on my fusion. and Kelly is $10K for it (mainly b/c of the milage on it) Am I out of my mind for wanting either of these cars? What'd suite me best?
