Bought the car for short commutes
around town. Ended up using as a
workhorse. MPG is ~15 so that is
brutal. Had numerous problems such as
axle leaks, brake issues, transfer
case replaced, and faulty electrical
system for dashboard. Taken this puppy
in to the shop at least 6-8 times and
paid the piper. I only recommend this
as a 2nd vehicle used for 4-wheeling
or taking the top off and cruising
around. All in all, not a very
4WD capability, and interchangeable
Reliability, road noise, more power
(even 6cyl is a dog in my opinion).
Don't even consider buying the 4Cyl.
Jeep engineers should be scolded for
even attempting a 4cyl.
