Bringing Adventure to the Road
Jeep, as a brand, has become synonymous with adventure. It’s not lost on the off-roading community that Jeep vehicles are often the most capable off-roading automobiles. If you spend a fair amount of time exploring the trails in the greater Colorado Springs area, you should consider buying a used Jeep. Jeep fans are serious about off-roading, and it is regarded as one of the brands with the greatest sense of community. There’s no better example of this than the Jeep Jamboree, which is an event that sees Jeep drivers from around the country meet up for off-roading adventures. Many people return with their beloved Jeep every year. This should give you an idea of their reliability.
However, Jeep’s popularity doesn’t only stem from off-roading but also because it’s a household name. Jeep was one of the most prolific manufacturers when it came to providing the US military with reliable transportation throughout World War II. If it weren’t for Jeep’s efforts––especially the craftsmanship seen in vehicles like the Willys MB––the war could have turned out drastically different. Today, Jeep’s craftsmanship has only strengthened. While the US military no longer drives Jeeps, the brand's prowess continues to evolve within the consumer market––this is especially true amongst off-roaders.
Today, Jeep’s lineup is full of home runs, and the good news for those who don’t see themselves off-roading often is that used Jeep vehicles are great for everyday life, too. For example, the Compass is a popular option for those who want a more streamlined everyday SUV with decent power, excellent cargo space, and a low starting price. However, off-roading enthusiasts usually aim for the Wrangler, which is commonly considered the Jeep vehicle you should buy for the best off-roading experience, owing to its standard 4x4 drivetrain, off-roading tuned suspension, ample power, and more. Drivers who want a Jeep vehicle capable of adventure that can comfortably carry the whole family should look into the midsize Grand Cherokee.
Financing a Used Jeep
Financing vehicles has become the most popular means of buying cars––Jeeps included. Not everyone has the cash to pay for a used vehicle upfront, and a loan makes budgeting easier. However, finding the right loan all by yourself can be a bit difficult; that’s why at The Faricy Boys, you can work with our on-site finance center, and we’ll take care of the hard part. When speaking with one of our financing experts, you'll be presented with an array of options you can choose from. This lets you find a loan with comfortable monthly payments and the lowest interest rates we can secure.
Loans are only the beginning, and that’s because many drivers opt to trade in their old vehicles in order to lower their monthly payments. The vehicle you are looking to sell doesn’t have to sport the Jeep badge for our finance center to consider it as a trade-in, either. At The Faricy Boys, we’ll buy your car, even if it’s a Honda, Ford, Toyota, or any other make. Our trade-in values reflect current market conditions, so you can count on getting an accurate estimate from us. Even if you decide not to purchase a used Jeep from us, we will pay cash for your old vehicle.
What Maintenance Does a Used Jeep Require?
A question often brought up by first-time Jeep owners is what maintenance a used Jeep requires. The truth is that Jeeps are much like any other car brand, so a large part of maintaining a Jeep vehicle is to treat it diligently as you would with any other car. This includes regularly bringing it into the shop to replace fluids such as oil and brake fluid. If your Jeep vehicle is off-road ready with a 4x4 drivetrain, it’s also important to bring it to a technician to replace the differential and transfer case fluids. Another essential facet of your Jeep to remember to check on is the spark plugs. These are cheap to replace, and fresh plugs can make a big difference in how smoothly your engine runs.
It’s also crucial that you keep your steering and suspension aligned, which is something a technician will inform you about if they notice misalignment, as this can be dangerous for yourself and others on the road. Like any other vehicle, you should always ensure your tires have the appropriate tread depth and are amply filled with air. Off-roading vehicles have durable all-terrain tires, but that doesn’t mean they’re invincible, so it’s always important to keep tire health in mind. We stock a full inventory of replacement tires, including all-terrain and mud-terrain options to enhance your adventures.
