It has a stiff ride, offers about the same noise isolation as a motorcycle and has a soft top that's a nail-buster to operate. That said, the 2000 Jeep Wrangler also offers a visceral motoring experience like no other and the off-road ability of a mountain goat.

Have wanted a Jeep since I started to drive. Just purchased a 2000 SE with 80,000. 4cyl. Drives great. Have been making mods to improve performance. Great gas mileage with the 4 banger. You do give up some performance. having fun working on it. Kids are having a great time with the top down. It is only up if its raining.

For years, I've wanted a convertible,
but wasn't sure I wanted to spend the
money for a rear-wheel drive Mustang.
Then this summer I saw a friend in a
Jeep Wrangler with the top down, and
owned one myself within the week. It
is the most fun vehicle my husband and
I have ever owned. Another friend says
I'm in mid-life crisis, but if this is
the case, then BRING IT ON!!!

Every few months, my wife begs me to get rid of my
Jeep. "It's bumpy," she says. "I can't hear myself
think." "I can barely climb into it." "My feet don't
touch the ground." (she's 5 feet tall)
But I run my hand along the hood, and I shake my
head. I'll drive this baby into the ground.
It handles like a dream, and has the tightest
turn-radius of anything I've ever driven. I love being
able to crawl anywhere I need to go, and still
get 20mpg on the freeway. With the top down,
this is, for any North Dakota boy who's made his
way to Cali, *the* dream car. I've found it extremely
dependable (I put 20k a year on it), easy to tinker
with, and no end of fun.

the newest jeep wrangler is jeep no
matter which way you look at it. the
only difference is the coil suspension
system, and the upgraded interior. in
my own oppinion the upgraded interior
has to go. i have a 1976 cj7 and a
1981 cj8 scrambler and they have no
interior whatsoever. its just to
pretty inside and way to much plastic.
a jeep is supposed to be a rugged
offroad machine not a pretty city
driven vehicle so keep it true to its
heritage and take the plastic out of

Very happy with vehicle.Wish it got
better mileage w/4.0 liter /auto trans.
Only problems in 30000 mile warranty
period were; Black paint on exterior
parts of alum-alloy (mirrors,door
handles and rear tailgate window hinges
all peeled.All replaced with no hassle
by dealer!Also, with my size 14 shoes I
frequently hit both gas and brake pedal
when stopping! Very scary!

Great Vehicle! I have the fully
sissified version. AC, CD, add-a-trunk,
and auto trans. I never thought I'd buy
the auto-trans but after I drove it
around Washington, DC once I had to
have it. Parking is very easy. I like
being able to go anywhere I want. I may
have to sell. The jeep isn't too
confortable for my wife, my son (4
months) and I.
A reengineered 4.0-liter PowerTech inline six-cylinder that is more refined and quiet, with reduced emissions, is standard for Sport and Sahara for 2000. Shift quality kicks up a notch, thanks to an all-new five-speed manual transmission. A radio/cassette combo with four speakers is now standard for the Sport, and the Sahara gains a radio/CD. Solar Yellow, Patriot Blue and Silverstone are additional exterior colors.
