If you had to pick between these two options, which would you take?
I narrowed my choice to these as I need an automatic daily driver that might withstand our stupid potholed rural roads. I'm not sure about the reliability of either.
One is American, it will be more nicer than the other but it will leave you in tears.
Take the Duster, I know I am not being too fair to the Jeep but even if something breaks on the Duster it won't leave you cursing under your breath or over it while fighting with the dealership who also don't have any idea how to fix the problem.
In my mind all American cars are just a bunch of Fords waiting to break on you.
