2002 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
For the most part, this is a fun vehicle to own. Keep in mind, however, that for some, a vehicle is a long term investment and you have to think about where you will be at 5 or even 10 years down the road of life. If you don't plan on taking many long trips, needing space for cargo, or many passengers, and if you can afford the gas, go for it. It is exceptionally fun to take the top down, go off road, and also handles great in the snow. If you have a family, take a lot of long trips, or feel the need for a smooth ride going to and from work, you may want to consider something a little bigger. I have had a Jeep Cherokee in the past which has many of the same capabilities as the wrangler.
Off road and winter driving capability. The feel of the wind in your hair in the summer.
Gas mileage is probably the biggest thing, but also, more interior space. I highly recommend going with the unlimited or 4 door version if considering a wrangler. Short wheel base on the standard size Jeeps make for a long, bumpy, and noisy ride on long trips.
