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.
