Not even filter changes?

I totally want a https://www.jeep.com/mediaserver/iris?COSY-EU-100-1713uLDEMTV1r9s%25WBXaBKFmfKSLC9gIQALMc6UhVk3GBfM9IW2VRkr72kRsd9pQLwXGXQpMTV1rUj4g6OQCckPquBhkcNR2oospbPwrokt1dn4M0eMODrt%25AFfq&&pov=fronthero&width=668&height=386&bkgrnd=&resp=jpg&cut=

Doesn't make sense to buy though since I live in a city and we have had 2 very light winters. Love the look though.

German cars are awful to maintain and service. And they have so many problems too. Would not buy one used with 30k miles on it.

If 'mericans find euro cars hard to maintain, and don't know that you have to change the oil from time to time maybe that's why euro cars end up with problems at low mileages.

Actually many cars ought to be able to go 50-100,000 miles on the same oil, as long as the piston rings and filter are working well, you drive sedately and its quality oil not that much really changes. Oil changes are largely to get you into the dealership and spending money - 'because if you don't your car will die'.
Problems are often created during maintenance, the manufacturers put a lot of effort into extending spark plug and oil life to minimise opening the system during the warranty period because they know the monkeys will drop some dirt in and ruin the engine.
Hence the cartridge oil system for one, which takes the monkeys out of the equation to some extent.

They're also incredibly dangerous and tippy in the snow. It's a piece of shit but people really like the image associated with it.

They are great in snow. They are easy to work on. And they hold up well.

Basically you are 100% wrong.

Narrow wheelbase, light, high center of gravity. I know you're not an engineer but most people recognize that these traits make for a terrible snow vehicle.

The trick is to not speed like an idiot in the snow. No engineering degree needed to figure that out.

If the concept of driving a truck slowly is difficult for you to understand, I don't blame you. I know you spent your early 20's driving trucks around in a panicked state.

It's not a truck, it's a lifted compact car. They really have no redeeming quality besides attracting some women. They are not off-road vehicles and certainly not snow vehicles. They're pretty much only good for taking the top off and driving down to the shore. Bruh.

It is a SUV. You can use it to tow things. You can go off road with it. That's what it is made for.

Brilliant motor my mate had one, and a Willy's Jeep, both infinitely better than a fucking Wrangler.

Because they're cheaper then a good 4x4 and people want to 'lord it' over everyone else on the road to feel 'safe' and 'superior'.

In my experience Asian women like SUVs and Trucks exactly for that reason.

Lots of female classmates are upgrading to SUVs. They all call it a "big girl" car.

Its human nature to want to be safe and superior, I don't much like having my face at the same level as the next guys bull-bars.

In a car-car crash his relatively soft bumper which is designed to absorb and spread impacts will hit my door which is designed to spread and absorb impacts.

In a car-SUV crash his rigid bull-bars will be straight through my glass window.

So yes, people do like to be a bit higher up these days thanks to the retards who use agricultural vehicles to compensate for having tiny willies.

I blame oestrogen in the food and water so basically its feminists fault.

No, it's hormone-like chemicals that bind to the same receptors and hormone level changing chemicals, for example bisphenole A or phtalates respectively. They have extensively been used in baby milk bottles until not long ago.
So it's basically the plastic industry.

Following that train of thought, breastfeeding gives you large penises, bottle feeding gives you tiny willies and big, all-wheel drive off-road vehicles.
