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!
Great in all weather.
Good gas mileage for a 4x4.
Waving to other Jeep owners.
Better sound system for those windy
I wouldn't change a thing about the
Jeep besides that. There are enough
Suburban Utility Vehicles out there.
Leave one for the common man.
Except for a short wiring harness, which
was fixed under warrenty. A rebult
reverse brought on by severe weather and
severe job requirements. A poor service
department and an overstuffed sales man
that was easily handled. NOT A ONE THING
TO COMPLAIN ABOUT. My wife , 1 daughter
and 3 sons all will kill each other just
to drive it.
It's a jeep wrangler and its fully
loaded, what else is there.
Its obviously a Jeep. Theres no
mistaken you are taking a ride in an
offroad vehicle from the first time you
enter it. I would have to agree with
the others that this is not an everyday
vehicle due to its poor performance on
the highway. However, it more than does
its job offroad. I think the suspension
is perfect, I got my Jeep because of
its capabilites, not for a plush ride.
I have not had a single problem with it
yet and its continues to impress me as
a fun to drive vehicle. I would
however, not be able to take it on the
highway above 55 mph for any length of
time. I would definetly buy another and
would recommend it to everyone that
wants to have fun.
OFF-ROAD capabilites!!! it does its
job, fun to drive around town, girls
what about a bigger engine?..gas
mileage can also be improved
Unpretentious car that operates very
well as a tub on wheels. Short
turning radius and relatively high
seating are big pluses. I also like
the accessibility of the engine
compartment and body parts. Highway
noise above 55 mph, and poor fuel
economy even for a 4 cylinder, are the
negatives. Overall, I would buy it
again, and am especially intrigued by
the new model with an extended
wheelbase and storage.
High seating and right turning radius.
Noise reduction at highway speeds. A
fuel-efficient Japanese engine.
This was my first Wrangler so
naturally I was apprehensive about the
ride quality and the noise, but I'm
pleasantly surprised at both. The
interior is very comfortable and
everything is laid out nicely. The
ride is a little rough, but better
than I expected. The soft top can be
noisy at high speeds but for its
purpose it is suitable. The engine is
the 2.4L I4 and lacks any real get up
and go for lots of highway driving,
but for city driving it is powerful
enough. If I were to do it over
again, I'd buy the 6 cyl. model.
Otherwise, like the title says, I
intentionally find the long way home
now--anything to spend more time
driving my Jeep!!
The classic look of a Jeep Wrangler.
The true off-roading capabilities.
This thing will go anywhere, snow,
mud, you name it, the Wrangler can
The 2.4L I4 isn't quite powerful
enough for highway speeds. On/off
ramps can be aggravating and passing
acceleration is next to nothing.
