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

Review

Was originally looking for cheapest,
most reliable convertible top vehicle,
and like many, I was hooked upon the
first test drive. You feel every bump,
but it's in character, and I love every
minute of it. That is, until you have
to panic stop on the freeway, or stop
at anything over 40 mph or so; this
thing goes into a very unsettling
continous front-to-rear hop, while
diving noticeably to one side. Mileage
is nothing short of pathetic, but
again, in character (amazing,
considering it's not carbed!!). For
those who definitely appreciate
simplicity with a touch of attitude and
allure.

Best Features

Simplicity of design, driving position, quick heater, parallel parking ability

Worst Features

God, please put a beefier, higher- performance braking system on this thing. Soft top glass/plastic gets damaged way too easily. Suspension and undercarriage parts are susceptible to rapid, but minor rusting.
