1997 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

I love my jeep. Its been a fun dependable car that I've took off roading many times and have never had a problem with it. It only has 70,000 but everything works and it still runs great after all the abuse I put it through. There are only 3 think I dislike and they are: 1. Soft tops are noisy on the Highway. 2. Gas Mileage stinks 3. 2.5L Has now power in 5th gear and stinks on long drives. I find myself downshifting alot on long highway trips.

Best Features

Big Tires. Fun Offroad. Buy a 97 or up because they changed the suspension in 97. They got rid of the leaf springs and went to coil springs....much much better.

Worst Features

Get rid of the 2.5L and just put 4.0L in them all. The 2.5L is underpowered for a jeeep. The 2.5 is dependable...just weak on the highway.
