my moms friend is looking for a new vehicle..she checked out a jeep that garys autowrecking is selling.it is a 99 tj that has just over 200000 kms..it is a 4cl auto which she was told is unusual for a 4banger:dontknow:

he is asking $5000




soooooooooooooo is this a good deal..bad deal...stay away from it or make an offer????????????????????

4cl i don't know much about but 200000 klm at 5000 seems high . i would think 3500 would be better.

Don't think it's a bunch of wrecks scabbed together Icbc has made that fairly hard to do
And the kms are pretty hi for the 4 cyl
and don't think the 4 cyl is better on fuel than the six cause there not and auto on top of it it's going to be gutless so you work the motor harder hence the lower fuel mileage

the four bangers run 411's so they arent THAT guttless but not terribly fast on the hwy so itd be fine for an older woman whos not wheeling towing or racing about. $5000 is steep. $400 is more reasonable.

i wouldn't buy a 4 cyl jeep period ... they get beaten so hard to make em move you only get about 250 000 kms outta em they get the same mpg as a 6 cause its a solid axle flat fronted truck .. oh and resale value is non existent for the 4 bangers

keep looking

5000 is way too high for a 4 banger from a wrecker, 2500 -3500 would be more appropriate

No ya see we can actually sell a jeep when we are done with it, unlike a toy that eventually rots away to nothing:dontknow:

Sure the scrap yard pays by the pound so the jeep is worth more
