Best Car for STJ
Hi! I am new to this board, but cannot emphasize what a help it has been over the last few weeks. I will be relocating to STJ on or around November 1st 2011 and had a question about the type of car to buy. I currently drive a 2006 Mazda 6 which I dont think would be great for the hills on STJ. I am looking to sell my car and buy a new one on the mainland to have shipped over. I am very interested in getting a Jeep wrangler (probably a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport or something) but wanted to know if it is unsafe to have a car with a soft top? Is car theft and or theft of items from inside of cars a big problem on STJ? Should I be looking to get a hard top version of the wrangler? Should I not get a wrangler at all? Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks!
Personally, I wouldn't have a car that doesn't lock and that includes a soft top. I was in a soft top a few times but reluctant to leave items in the car unattended.
The smallest 4- wheel drive you can get away with is the best choice. The island is full of little Suzuki's and Wranglers.
I have a 2 WD RAV4... I wish it was a 4WD.
