Vehicle: 1999 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD

i love my jeep, it has been everywhere with me, from Colorado, Oklahoma, an Tennessee. love going offroad, put on all kinds of accessories, been very reliable. i fell into a ditch and flooded the engine, busted all kinds of things up, and its still goin strong. easy to work on and way fun to drive. not a family car in the winter but in the summers my sons love it.

Purchased '99 Wrangler in 2004. In '06 engine dropped a rod with 127K miles. Replaced engine and it has been nothing but problems since. It's embarrassing how much money I've spent on maintaining this vehicle. I LOVE driving it but the last few years have been a major disappointment




It's a jeep, can't complain

I have enjoyed owning this Jeep so much. The only reason I can see to sell it is I don't recommend putting car seats in it. I loved it in the winter as well as the summer. It's 4 wheel drive, so I never had problems getting where I needed to be. Not even in a blizzard! It's so fun owning a Jeep, especially when you have a hard top, soft top as well as a bikini top. I recommend it to everyone, except if you have an infant to tool around with.




This jeep is worth any

I bought this jeep as my second car. I had a Mazda but it was about to die and I didn't like it all that much. I bought this Jeep and i love it. It's a go anywhere do anything vehicle with so many options it will leave your head spinning. All of my friends and family love it and it's reliable. Plus the insurance is the exact same as it was on my last car. Overall I love it to death.

There's only one!

Those looking for a soft ride and performance numbers need not apply. The Jeep is a harsh ride. It's noisy and brash. But it's a boatload of fun in the winter and the summer. I would never recommend the 4 cylinder without the manual transmission. It doesn't have enough ponies for an automatic transmission. I get on average about 20 mpg with 100K miles. I do quite a bit of highway traveling, and as long as you aware of the limitations of driving such a short vehicle at 70 mph, you'll be fine. Wind is about the only enemy of the Jeep. Strong Illinois winds bounce the Jeep around like a pinball, but you couldn't pay me to trade it in. This Jeep is mine until she dies. There's Only One!
