We bought this as a step up in a second car. It quickly became our favorite. From 0-100 it takes just 16 seconds! Stops from 100 m.p.h. in a amazing 126ft.
This is a 1/4 mile high 14's Jeep!
Bone stock,179K miles still idles at 600rpm smooth as glass. Stomping on the gas lurches you forward without any tire spin just flat out acceleration.
Gets 15m.p.g. overall a stout 18@ 65mph for any length.
The interior is laid out perfect! Cruise and radio/CD control on the steering wheel.Climate control that really works! Slick leather seats in dove Grey.Leather and wood everywhere! Faster than 5.0's n Vettes in the 1990's!
Still shocks kids at red light jumps. Only in a Jeep!
180 watt Infinity 8 speaker am-fm cass-cd with controls on rear side of steering wheel,cruise on front.
This Jeep is wicked fast! I race from stop lights and 35mph horn starts and this thing eats,Mustangs,Challangers,Vettes. It really stands tall with any vehicle up to 2005 when the Hemi's came out.
I gentleman off road in Wisc. and have never been let down.Only wear item repairs ever!
Just did full tune up w/tri-fire plugs,cap,wires/rotor runs like brand new!
Needs Premium fuel,I would love to run cheaper 87 octane but it does NOT work on it.
I bought this Jeep for my wife before my last tour in Iraq. When I came home there were very few issues, and after some repairs we took it on a trek across country and back. just over 5000 miles. Last night while driving though the mountains, we got hit with a cross wind that shoved me left and ripped the sunroof right out of the vehicle. It was raining and the sunroof was closed tightly. None of the interior windows were open.
Love the look and after replacing the stereo and 2 front speakers love the sound quality.
Obviously if the sunroof thing is a factory defect then that could be improved, also the mileage should be a bit better, but it is not as bad as some.
I dont usually buy Domestic, and now I
know why... While generally reliable,
the gas mileage is poor,I am now
inundated with repairs,9 At
105,000..and the fit out and comfort is
not nearly as nice as the competitors
at Toyota,or Nissan.
IF I had to o it over again, the extra
5k for the Import is well worth it.
Favorite feature, is the navigational
tools such as compass direction, avg
gas mileage, outdoor temperature etc...
its a handy tool.
Fuel injected engines, better fitout,
and higher quality parts to reduce the
number of garage visits.. This car
should not be failing at 100,000 miles,
but it is..
