My new 2002 Wrangler S.E.

2001 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I am pleased with my new Jeep. We got a Wrangler SE with the 2.5L 4cyl, and the 5 spd. manual transmission, along with an upgraded cloth interior. Transmission is silky smooth. The 4cyl. has more than adequate power for my use. I am impressed with the build quality - tight & rattle free, and even the convertible top is quiet.
Overall quality. This vehicle is solid. It feels very steady for a short wheelbase high CG SUV. Interior trim and paint are flawless.
Improve Fuel economy. 4 cyl. is dissapointing. I avg. about 17.5 mpg combined city/hwy driving. I expected 20+ mpg. My '98 Cherokee 4.0 cyl 5spd, and my '90 2.9L V-6 5 speed Ranger get better mileage. Put a Handle on the release latch for the reat seat!
