Fun, but NOT as a primary car
By Jeep Buddy on


1999 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD


I bought my Jeep new four years ago and have had a lot of time to think about it. It's basically a good car; it's fun taking the top off, it's been reliable, it looks good and girls like it. BUT: it's noisy, the ride is punishing, it uses gas like a Winnebego yet it's so underpowered you can plant flowers on the side of the road as you steam away from a stop light and it is, for all intents and purposes, a two- seater with very little luggage space. As an auxilliary, around-town car you can't beat it, but it's NOT made for driving every day, or for routinely driving trips longer than 25 miles or so.

Best Features

Convertible top (to me, getting the hard top defeats the purpose), rugged good looks, everybody wants a ride when the weather's nice.

Worst Features

Where to start? Stronger engine, better gas mileage, quieter interior, a suspension that doesn't knock out a filling when you hit a piece of toilet paper.
