Haha no the IS's are great cars... they really just lack any kind of torque unless boosted or SCed. Reliable as hell though, but awful in bad weather conditions.

LOL, that's exactly what I was thinking, selling a Toyota product and getting a Jeep hoping issues will be less. That's kind of like getting a vasectomy via an NFL kicker and hoping it won't hurt, isn't it?

I just sold an 03 Liberty (fully loaded) for $5950 about two weeks ago. It was a friend's who was too busy to do it himself, cause he is getting married. He had almost no problems with it, one minor transfer case part. And it had 187,000 miles. Runs and drives like new, I enjoyed having it for a few weeks. Gas mileage is pretty lousy, though, otherwise my wife wanted it.

My '91 6cyl wrangler got 18 no matter how i drove it. 160k miles.
Bought it for $1200, replaced the slave and changed the oil. Only other problems it has is a worn out 5spd and a leaky rear transfer case seal.

I hate selling cars to people I know. Although I probably would have drove it out there for the price of a ticket back. Oh well, sorry.

I think I got about 14/15mpg and I wasn't really that hard on it. My miata has been getting 30mpg (NA was 26) and I drive it with some enthusiasm. I told my wife I would rather have two turbo miatas.
