2003 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my third wrangler and my
fourth jeep vehicle and i've had no
problems with any of them..If you get
hung up about getting dirt,dog
hair,lots of water,beach sand, or
dirty kids than this vehicle is not
for you.The ride is rough -deal with
it!You can count on one hand the
things you can do with other vehicles
as opposed to a jeep wrangler-stop
crying and go buy a honda.


Best Features

go anywhere do anything-and i did!


Worst Features

dont put power windows in it...dont put power locks in it or any other things those crybabies are whining about..

2003 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased it gently used with 31x10.5
tires already installed. Rides a lot
better than the '97 I had previously
driven. 2.4L has better horsepower
than older models. Transmission and
clutch operate very smoothly. Can hear
some clunking into gear, and very
stiff in the single digit temps of
Iowa winter. High back seats are
comfortable for long drives, but don't
expect to get much above 65mph with
the 4 cyl. Looking forward to spring
off-roading.


Best Features

Simple layout, solid trans and clutch operation. Front seats are comfortable and easy folding of rear seat.


Worst Features

Bring in the 3.7L V-6 as an engine option.

2003 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The SE model with 2.4L I-4 engine is
underpowered and uses a lot of gas for
an I-4. The engine seems rev
happy for an offroad engine. Gearing is
awesome in the 5 speed transmission,
although 3rd gear could stand to be a
bit lower and closer to 2nd's ratio.
Highway sppeds in excess of 65mph are
hard to reach even on a flat surface
during a calm dry day. Design, both
interior and exterior, is classic bare
basics Jeep. Overall a great car if you
are into Jeeps.


Best Features

4.10:1 gearing, highly customizable, unbeatable offroad prowess, excellent city handling, solid as a rock, very utilitarian, awesome articulation, able to fit a 31" tire in stock form.


Worst Features

Needs more low and mid range power. Standard Hard Top. Shorter front bucket seats. Gorund clearance is less than 2002 and earlier, ditch the Rubicon skid plates.

Review

These cars are a "gas" to drive. You
want to throw on aflannel shirt and
your hiking boots and head for a
field. The other people who drive them
wave to you so you feel as if you are
part of some "club". I'm not certain if
its a vehicle or a "lifestyle". I love
it so far.


Best Features

ride height, utility, sure-footedness, visibility


Worst Features
