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.
