1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

Everything is great on this vehicle. Drive it without dogging it, or beating the crap out of it everywhere you go, and it will last a long time without major repairs. The only downside is the HORRIBLE GAS MILEAGE! 15mpg if you're lucky.


Favorite Features

The interior.


Suggested Improvements

More MPG! A soft top that doesn't take 15 minutes to put back on.

Review

This is the most fun vehicle I've ever owned. I drove it from Virginia to Idaho in 4 days and had no problems. Well, with the soft top it did get kinda loud.


Favorite Features

Riding with the top off and getting caught in a thunderstorm and getting soaked. My wife and I were laughing like kids.

I'm very happy with my Jeep . I can't wait for it to get warm outside and iI can take the top off. I've always wanted to do that and now I can. Overall I'm very happy with the Jeep .

Review

I've owned several Wranglers, including the new Unlimited, and while the '98 is the oldest (and most experienced) ... so far, it's my favorite. The 2.5L 4 fits me better than the previous 4.0L engines, and this one is also my first with a manual tranny. Aside from a bit more road noise (a great excuse to add a "monster" audio system) than my other Jeeps, I have no complaints. The economy of the 4 cylinder is fine for me. It's a fun little utility vehicle, and I guess I've been lucky, but I've had no mechanical issues with any of the Wranglers I've owned, putting a collective 150,000 miles on them. I'll never be without a Wrangler as long as I live.


Favorite Features

Uniqueness, utility, just all-around fun! The ability to customize just about every aspect of the vehicle, to make it "uniquely yours".


Suggested Improvements

None ... don't mess with the classic styling.

Review

For off-roading and driving in the snow, This car is a lot of fun to have. However, if you have to drive it everyday, this is not a great car. Also, if you are looking for a car that is very reliable and does not require a lot of maintenance, this is NOT your car. it takes a lot of "upkeep". But its damn fun off-road!


Favorite Features

4X4, inline engine


Suggested Improvements

everything but the 4X4.
