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.

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

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!

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

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.
