1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

From my experience with my 1997 Wrangler, and through discussion with the dealers, and my dad (a certified master mechanic) I have learned that this vehicle is a disaster. Since I purchased the car 1 1/2 years ago, I have had four major problems that totaled over $1,500. The dealer said that since 1997 was the first year for the new model, it was riddled with design flaws as they were trying to still work the bugs out. Instead of minor repair, the company makes you replace the entire system that is defective, which results in a hefty fee, and the company will not pay for it.

Favorite Features

It's fun in the summer when you can put the top down. It's also narrower than other SUV's and I like that.

Suggested Improvements

Jeep should no longer be owned by Chrysler. I think that is the problem. Then Jeep might start putting out better vehicles.
