I recently purchased my Jeep from my brother. Sure, I drove it once or twice, but didn't love it. I've had it now for just about a month and am sure I will always own one. I enjoy it more than anything I have ever owned, from sports cars, performance sedans, big granny wagons to full size trucks and vans.
Open top, easy manual trans, 4x4, ease of pot hole handling, and attention. Also, feels like driving a go-kart / toy.
Great auto, it does whatever you want it to do. It has had to have some repairs done to it, but with a vehicle that is designed to go anywhere, things are bound to wear out. The inline 6 is a great engine, the fuel econ is a little low but with knowledge of how the eng works you can improve it dramatically i.e.: a little diesel mixed in the fuel at the right levels sent mine from 16mpg to 20mpg keep the lift low 2.75 inch, run 33inch tires change the trans to an AW4 and I added 4 more now Im at 23mpg. the last thing I did was use a cylinder cut out at 1200 to 3500 rpm (highway speeds) #2 and #5 drop out that added 5 to 6 more depending on who made the gas, now 29 to 30mpg. Anyone can do it.
If Jeep would make a drop in diesel engine with transmission would make a big difference, you can really make those get some high econ.
I love everything about this vehicle
except the gas mileage. My last tank I
used 89 octane and averaged 15 mpg
city/hwy. Jeep owners are their own
breed of people. Be prepared for some
repairs, squeaks, and bad MPG. The
functionality of this vehicle is
amazing. You can truely go anywhere
with it! I wouldnt recommend this
vehicle for people that have long
commutes to work due to the gas
mileage. The I6 is a very responsive 6-
cylinder engine. I have the 3 speed
automatic transmission with mine and I
think it could be a bit better. I had
to have the torque converter replaced
under waranty when I first purchased
the vehicle. 3rd gear was vibrating
like crazy! Great for short
commutes, not long trips.
The features are endless. Bolt-ons and
accessories for the Wrangler never
stop. I love the 4WD in the snow.
Never get stuck. Small truck with
plenty of interior room.
The only thing that has to get improved is the gas mileage, and to
make it a bit more water-tight.
This car breaks constantly. In less
than 6 months I have replaced the
catalytic converter, muffler, clutch,
several engine senors, raditor, fuel
filter and pump, and still the car
does not run right! Jeep truley stands
for just empty every pocket.
My nuddy had a 92 wrangler back in the
day and we had a ball in that jeep. I
always remembered the good times we ahd
in it. I finally bought my jeep used
from a dealer. It had 39k on it and it
looked like it was taken care of. I
have never driven anything that is so
much fun. I will have this jeep for a
super long time. If I had to get
something different it going to be a
new jeep without a doubt.
I love the Sahara seats. Much nicer
than the standard seats. Air just in
case is super hot and your all dressed
up. The 4.0 is a nice package that's
been around a long time. It handles
very well for the small package it is.
The big tire package is nice too.
