No brother and off-road: whether to buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee

Unlike many competitors born on a common platform with pickups and inherited the frame, and even springs, Grand Cherokee from the first generation gained its concept of an SUV with a monocoque and spring suspension. Yes, the suspensions are dependent here, since both the front and the rear are installed along a continuous bridge, but, nevertheless, a more “passenger” approach has a positive effect on comfort. And from the point of view of choosing a machine, the youngest copies of which celebrate the twentieth anniversary, and the oldest have already lived to a quarter of a century, the lack of a frame is in many ways a plus, not a minus. After all, the frame, no matter how cool – the number element, and even if the body is well preserved, the “foundation” without a number or with holes reduces the expediency of buying to almost zero.

As a matter of fact, there was nothing surprising in this: the European engineering center of the Korean concern located in Frankfurt was engaged in the development of the design. The main highlight was the layout with a fairly vertical fit, a high roof and a nearly vertical rear door, which allowed to increase the internal volume with very modest external dimensions.

From the ceiling to the floor: buy Audi Q7

If you are not allergic to large crossovers or Volkswagen as a whole, then it is probably impossible to dislike Q7. It is clear that the taste and color of all markers are different, but in their class no competitor has such elegance. Large, comfortable, richly equipped, also traveling almost like a passenger … What can sadden the everyday life of a happy owner?
In the case of Q7 with mileage, the step from love to hate can be overcome in one visit to the service center. Damn expensive to maintain, even during the warranty, and even “killed” by the previous owners of the car will be the reason for the most fierce negative emotions quickly. And if he is also with the “unsuccessful motor” …
