This vehicle is awesome! Fun to drive, especially in the summer with the top off. I bought it with 74K miles and now have over 98k. Every time I change the oil it looks exactly the same as when I put it in, clean! No problems with engine or transmission. Excellent capability in the snow, never stuck once. The 6 cylinder is a must, despite poor gas mileage. Comfort isn't too bad, but the ride is that of a Jeep, it's supposed to be a little rough. Right? The only minor problems I've had is replacing the sway bar brackets and bushings. Also the universal joints on the drive shaft seem to wear out quick. They make a very annoying clicking sound when you take off out of first gear.
Looks; you always get people checking you out in a Jeep! The manual transmission is a must; it's a Jeep, they should only come in manual. Don't know how to drive one? Learn!
More durable, better quality U-joints on drive shaft, and sway bar bushings.
