my wife hates my XJ. its too hard for her to get in and out of, too hard to get the kids in and out of. It only has a 3.5" lift and 31" tires. There is no way I'm going to go any bigger any time soon. its too noisy, too hot and costs way too much money.
TALF bit didn't bother me as it wasn't a financed bankruptcy. Also, I'm biased. If I based my transportation buying decisions on whoever didn't get any money whatsover...well, yeah, I'd be walking. Barefoot.

Our XJ isn't lifted, so it's pretty easy to get in and out of. It's pretty much stock, with 63K miles. We may wear it out someday...the horror!
