So many of you know that I picked up a 2003 VW Jetta back in July with the 1.8t motor and 5 speed automatic. Needless to say, it has not been a pleasant experience. Since purchase I've replaced the following: 2 Coolant hoses 2 vacuum lines 02 Sensor Radio (Old one shorted out) And the following things still need to be done: Transmission solenoids MAF Sensor (possibly) All interior door handles Speakers (They decided to blow a week after buying the car) Timing belt and all that **** So, to make a long story short, I would like to stop spending $80-$100 everytime the thing needs a hose and move on to something 4x4. What I'm looking at is a 2000 Grand Cherokee that I could more then likely do a pretty even trade for. 125K, 4.0L I6 42RE 4 speed transmission. Limited package. In the long run, which vehicle would be more reliable? I'm not talking just the little things, but motor and tranny too. Thanks!
