No opinion on Jeeps, but I have a huge opinion on newer vehicles. The engineers have built in way too many complicated, unreliable, trouble-prone, expensive, unnecessary computers, and I refuse to own one of those vehicles. My daily driver is an'88 Grand Caravan. It's the one I trusted for three recent cross-country trips. My newer vehicles sit at home.
If you search through this forum, you'll be amazed at how many problems people are having related to these computers. It's a very high price to pay for all the toys and gimmicks people demand.
An '89 model will have very few electrical problems, and if it does have one, it's pretty easy to diagnose and inexpensive to repair. There are no common, or "pattern" failures that I'm aware of.
