Wow, have things changed.

Bells & whistles, electronic everything. A rolling computer...with 4 wheel drive. It doesn't even need any keys. No wonder they cost as much as they do. I could never afford a new $100K F-250 King Ranch.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Lux is in our garage, just brought it home.  V6, towing package, and "comfort & convenience" group (which does everything but wipe your ass when you shit) was more in our price range. Wife's new ride. Way more complicated than my 04 Wrangler Rubicon or her last new car, a 2010 Malibu (which now belongs to our youngest granddaughter).

We're reading the owners manual now... thick enough to probably stop a 9mm round.

Handcranked? LOL... my first 'ride' had 4 legs, a mane, bridle, and 'real leather' seat. Back when horsepower was much easier to count. Methane gas was it's only "emissions". It was a 3 speed... canter, trot, gallop...

And fuel economy was measured in OPM, oats per mile.

This isnt a thread about whether you would buy a new car or not~ussrangersm

Thanks for the censorship. Regardless of what the point of the thread was what gives you the right to change my reply???
