Review of the 2002 Jeep Wrangler

  • The 2002 Jeep Wrangler 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 Wrangler also offers a visceral motoring experience like no other and the off-road ability of a mountain goat.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Cheap, fun to drive, classic styling, go-anywhere capability.

  • Cons

    Soft top a handful to manipulate, difficult ingress/egress, slow steering.

  • What's New for 2002

    A new "X" model is introduced, combining the potent 4.0-liter inline six with affordability. Sahara and Sport models receive upgrades, including hard doors with roll-up windows. New optional wheels, increased output from the climate control system and an improved premium sound system round out the changes to the tough and ready 2002 Jeep Wrangler.

2002 2.5l 4cyl wranger se

Vehicle: 2002 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

This Jeep was driven at Camp Jeep 2003 in the Blue Ridge mountains. It's been through all kinds of trails and weather. This was even good in the snow for a lightweight. I recommend to everyone the following: Get rid of the Goodyear tires! Since I got 215/75/15 BFG AT KO tires, the Jeep has handled even better and it doesn't slip in the rain. Also get a tow hitch and replace the bumpers. I hope to travel south to the Ynes Mountains for Camp Jeep 2005 in California. I did purchase the sliding glass half upper doors from Quadratec.




Excellent choice

A Jeep is a Jeep -- you must know that going in. It won't get good mileage, it has a rough ride, and it is "plain Jane" on the inside. But, IT'S A JEEP and I love it. This is my second one and it is just as much fun as the first. I highly recommend a Jeep to anyone who wants to have a true original off-road vehicle.

Ever since I was a little girl I wanted a Jeep, actually a CJ-7. When I turned 20 I bought my Wrangler and I love it. I can't wait until the summer time so I can get that top off!




Simply great

Great convertible/SUV. How many people can say they own a car that is convertible during summer and SUV during winter. Plus, Jeep Wranglers hold their value, KBB and other places might undervalue than in their first years after build, but I haven't seen them sell one themselves ;-)




Fun

Like a four wheel drive Miata
