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 Sahara 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The build quality of my new Jeep is
simply horrific ! With less than
12,500 miles, it has been in the shop
no less than 5 times !! The driving
lights went out ( replaced whole
harness ), the A/C quit working twice,
the airbags quit working twice, engine
stalled 4 times and the bumper-ette
worked itself loose. The most annoying
thing is the paint quality. With 3500
miles on it, bug juice removed 117
eraser sized chunks of paint on the
grill !! The dealer ( 2 of them )
refused to declare it a warrenty item.
Chrysler defered exclusively to the
dealer. No other car I've ever had (
over 15, brand new ) ever had this
prob.


Best Features

convertible fun, ease of manuevering


Worst Features

Quality is horrible. I will never buy another Daimler-Chrysler vehicle again. Customer service is NON existent, they simply defer all issues to the dealer who is the final authority. Be warned, and expect problems.

Review

LOVE my Jeep - can't believe I waited
so long to get one. You get the same
adventure as a motorcycle only
safer!! I think I'm a Jeep Wrangler
lifer!


Best Features

Of course the Soft Top - absolutely fun and looks great!!


Worst Features

Being a woman, I do not have the hand- strength needed to put the soft-top back on by myself.

2003 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I had my jeep for two months but had
to trade it in because after SEVERAL
close calls, I finally had an accident
when it slid into the back of another
car on wet roads. I have no doubt
that had I'd been driving a car, it
would have stopped - there was plenty
of room. It's also very difficult to
see what other vehicles are doing when
you are trying to change lanes and
merge into traffic. On the good side
though, it was a fun car and the a/c
was excellent and got cold very fast.


Best Features

Soft top roof and fast, cold a/c


Worst Features

Even though it's a jeep, i still wish it had power windows, locks, etc. Also, for safety, they need to do something about the tires, brakes, etc. so that people aren't sliding all over the wet roads!!
