I like this Jeep; it's got the advantages of the smaller suvs such as ground clearance, storage, passenger room, roof racks, rear wheel drive and just being up higher than small cars (plus it looks like the 4wd). Plus the advantages of a compact car -- good ride, fuel economy no extra drivetrain to weigh it down or maintain, transmission/clutch repairs are a breeze compared to its 4wd cousin (no transfer case to deal with). Overall good little suv for the budget minded person. Also the 2.5 4 cylinder is surprisingly spunky. It's not a slouch as you would think; it's no 4.0 liter but more power means less fuel economy. This day and age I'd rather have the torquey 4 banger! it does the job quite well.
Torquey 4 cylinder, 5 speed, low gearing, seats, overall room for the size of vehicle and REAR WHEEL DRIVE!
CUP HOLDERS, shorter throw shifter (can be purchased aftermarket for $140 from B&M), more than one interior powerpoint.
