Searching for a vehicle that can handle big potholes and puddles

My lease is almost up and I'd like to replace it with a car with a high ground clearance that can handle seriously terrible city streets...but I also take the highway to work every day. I live in a city with terribly maintained streets and frequent flooding when it rains (think lots of puddles of indeterminate depth). My commute is a mix of both city streets and highway and I'm looking for a used car, automatic, probably under 20K. [more inside]

We're living somewhere else for a month. But where?!

We rented our house for 5 weeks in July and early August, so we're outta here (here being White Mountains, New Hampshire). We've got two dogs and a hankering for adventure. Where in the U.S. or Canada should we live for a month or so this summer? [more inside]

Long-term solution for a leaking soft-top Jeep Wrangler?

Rainy Pacific Northwest winter woes! I got my 2006 2-door Jeep Wrangler 4 x 4 soft-top convertible last year from a used-car place...it was completely water-tight & cozy all winter, then a dream with top down in the summer sunshine. This year, different story. All the taking the top off/on means some seams have frayed, and the bits that tuck in don't fit as well into their little grooves, and there are physical gaps where water is coming in. What's worse is the huge puddle that gathers on the fabric roof when it rains. The water sinks through, beads up all along the inside ceiling (not just weak zones...the whole thing) and then *rains down* on hapless passengers within. [more inside]

Why is my Jeep unlocking itself every 30 seconds?

I have a 2004 Jeep Liberty. I was in my garage when it unlocked itself. I used my key fob to lock it back. A few seconds later the Jeep again unlocked itself. After several lockings and unlockings I decided to just leave it unlocked. However, even unlocked, the Jeep tries to unlock itself about every 30 seconds. Help? [more inside]

What is the song in the new Jeep Commercial, September 2014?

The song has been stuck in my head - I believe it is a Michael Jackson song (it is NOT, I repeat, NOT "Love Never Felt So Good"). I can't seem to find it on YouTube or ISPOT, but it shows people doing "autumn" outdoor activities in various Jeep models. One of the scenes is a pick-up game of football lit by the headlights of two Jeeps.

$200 Key for a jeep liberty --options

My wife broke the hole (I don't know how else to say it) off of her key for our 2005 Jeep Liberty. A replacement costs $200. The perfect answer would involve some kind of leather pouch that the key would fit in which would then attach to a key ring. I'm open to other ideas though. The better ideas will be much less than $200.

Sell now or pay later?

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. is an unreliable, gas-guzzling symbol of all that's wrong with this world. At 78K it performs - the small errand here or the work commute there - but barely, sending warning signs all along that some bigger and more troubling defect is on the horizon. Does it make more sense for me to sell (or more likely) trade it in now while the resale is 5k (at best), or to continue to drive it while I (and it) can do so? [more inside]

Army Jeep, anyone?

My father and I are looking to sell his 1969 m151a2 Army Jeep. It's in good condition, but we're in a town that only has so much selling potential (Birmingham, AL). Putting it on Ebay seems like an obvious choice. I was also thinking of putting it on craigslist for towns that, though far, might include some willing to pay more to have the jeep transported. I've googled about for websites selling Army jeeps but haven't come up with much. Do you have any suggestions for selling this? Online or offline, overall, we'd just like to get the best mix of convenience in selling and price. In advance and always, thank you for reading my question, for thinking about it, and if posting, thank you even more. This really is a great forum and I hope to be a part of it for a long long time.
