2002 Jeep Wrangler SUV Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The Jeep Wrangler is definetly not a
car for everybody, but for people that
like a fun ride and don't mind the
bumps, this car is great. The pro's
are that it has 4 wheel drive in the
winter and is a convertable in the
summer. So you get the best of both
worlds, and how many card do you know
that you can do that. Also I like the
feeling of freedom I get when I drive
this car. Every time I get into my car
it puts me in a good mood. The down
sides are, it is not really great for
groceries because there is not much
storage space. And sometimes people
complain about the bumpy ride. But all
in all for me it is a daily escape and
makes driving fun.


Best Features

I like the 4 wheel drive in the winter and taking the top off in the summer. I also like the look of the Jeep and that it sits up high like a truck, without being a full truck.


Worst Features

I guess I would suggest make the soft top easier to take on and off, sometimes I find it hard to fit the pieces together. I would also recommend more cargo space. But I guess they already improved on that with the new Jeeps. Overall a great car.

2002 Jeep Wrangler SUV Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

If you want to look good at the beach
or driving thru your neighborhood, get
a Wrangler Sport! Oh, and get one if
you want a plastic and cheap interior,
awful gas mileage, a hit or miss
transmission, absolutely no cargo room,
windows that scratch when you breathe,
ventilation that turns on and off
without turning it on or off, a cd
player that skips at every bump,
painful shocks, check engine light that
is always on, POOR Dealer SERVICE,
parts that RUST (screws, attachments on
vehicle exterior, windows) and if you
like replacing your windshield every
three months, GET A WRANGLER. I cannot
wait to get rid of this piece of
garbage.

2002 Jeep Wrangler SUV X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my 02 X and then customized.
This is a great way to build the
perfect offroad vehicle. I love this
car--and my kids (3 and 6) love it too-
-as does my wife. I have had no
problems AT ALL. This car is
perfectly designed for what it is--
though probably not for commuters :)

The car is unstoppable in snow and is
very well balanced. When it slides,
it slides well and enhances control.

The Jeep X is very low cost and can be
easily customized.


Best Features

The 4.0 L engines is very good, and even with stock transmission has enormous amounts of torque. You can climb anything if you can get traction.


Worst Features

None. The gas mileage is fine for this kind of car -- high drag / big engine / high torque. This car is the essence of a long evolution cycle -- it is perfect for what its for.

2002 Jeep Wrangler SUV Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

It is reliable and fun. Think of this 4
wheeler as a Harley with more
aftermarket accessories.
Drawbacks, small cargo space, plastic
dash, and you will have to downshift to
2nd gear to climb even the mildest of
hill inclines at highway speeds.
I have driven long distances twice
(1200 miles and 1600 miles) and it is
compariable as a standard cab small
pickup.
Mine is an 02 Sport but came with half
doors, Khaki paint, and low gears not
listed for 02. I think Jeep was
experimenting with my '02 and a half
Sport for the later Rubicon.


Best Features

Convertible! High Seating Position! Perfect motor!


Worst Features

Improve gearing for inclines. Change dash to metalic. Overland length plus standard transmission would be best as a standard model (this would improve towing limitations of the Sport too). Large floor speakers to aid Soundbar. Better side mirrors to aid aft blindspots.

2002 Jeep Wrangler SUV X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

BOUGHT MY JEEP A COUPLE OF MOTHS AGO,
AFTER YEARS OF WANTING ONE. ALL OF MY
FRIENDS LOVE IT, MAKES ME WONDER WHY
THEY DON'T ALL JUST GET ONE. LOOKS
SHARP, ESPECIALLY W/ THE WINDOWS OUT
AND/OR THE TOP DOWN.


Best Features

CONVERTIBLE TOP FOR SUMMER. 4X4 FOR WINTER, WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT. COURTESY LIGHTS ARE REALLY NICE TOO, GET THEM. DON'T PAY FOR A SPORT THE X IS EXACTLY THE SAME, JUST GET THE FEATURES YOU WANT.


Worst Features

GAS MILEAGE
