2015 Jeep Wrangler JK Named 10th Worst New Vehicle

Forbes this week named the 2015 Jeep Wrangler JK in all its incarnates as the 10th out of 15 worst new vehicle of 2015. Other jeep models were 11 and 12.
saying its uncomfortable, noisy, blah, blah, blah. But it did say it has a very high resale value. I'd say one of the best resale values for any vehicle for decades!

Who reads Forbes? People with money in highly urban areas. A Wrangler wouldn't be my top vehicle choice in that environment either. They're writing to people who vacation in the Bahamas every year, not Moab.

'12 Sport...I need to up my powerball investments, mods are expensive!

Exactly! I love my jku. "Noisy" or not. Just turn up the stereo.

There's nothing like having the top and doors off.

I support the military, fiscal responsibility, Hemp, legalization of Marijuana over 21, smaller government and the Bill of Rights.

NSA: The only part of the government that actually listens.

Consumer Reports hates it, too, and as long as they do we're safe. The instant Jeep makes enough changes to the utility Jeep for those idiots to like it, we're all in trouble.

But yet they sell like hot cakes and Chrysler can't build enough of them (let alone the $$ they make on them).

When will the Edmunds, Consumer Reports, etc, learn that people buy it for what it is?

The joke is on Forbes!

Jeep sold 9/18/2015.

this has been goin on forever, Wranglers have always been in the "worst" category for fuel economy, noise, ride comfort, blah blah

but, they place up at the top for customer satisfaction (fun factor) over everything else

this is read in Consumers Report

Blacked out 07 JKUR, safari straps, Treadwright 35's on stock rims and Spydertrax spacers, stubbied front bumper, trimmed flares, 2" body lift, 2" spacers in front with 1" spacers in rear, Gen Right Tire carrier, more to come!

If you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree you will think of the fish as a failure

If it is so bad, explain why it has such a high resale value? You'd think people at Forbes would be smart enough to figure that one out. If it was so bad, the resale value would be low.
