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


Review

This thing has a personality like no
other, and makes Canadian snowstorms a
really fun experience.

The mechanical aspects are pretty
rudimentary, as the inline 6 growls
without putting much power, and has a
drinking problem worse than some of my
party buddies (from 11MPG in winter to
19mpg in a smooth highway drive). The
4.7 V8 or new Liberty Diesel would
most likely be smoother, more powerful
and probably better on gas.

Both Hardtop and Soft top are fairly
quiet and insulate from the elements.
Heater and AC are powerful enough to
counter the elements.

Best Features

Unique look, non-pretentious character, off-road capabilities, high seating...and of course the fact it is a convertible.


Worst Features

Drivetrain should be updated to something more modern with better fuel economy. Put more retro-looking dash/guages instead of plastic...and make the soft top easier to put up and down.

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


Review

My experience with the Jeep Rubicon has
been excellent. The vehicle is built
to last and handle even the harshest of
conditions. I live in Maine, and my
Jeep will take me anyplace I need to
go, in any weather conditions. It's a
fun year round vehicle, with a hard top
for the cold winter months, and a
convertible soft top for those summer
cruises to the beach!


Best Features

The axel lockers by far are the best feature the Rubicon has to offer.


Worst Features

More comfortable seats and better fuel economy are the only improvements i'd make to the Rubicon.

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


Review

I have had my 2002 Jeep Wrangler now
for almost two years. I absolutely love
it! I wish the fuel economy was better
due to the fact that I commute about 70
mile round trip every day. But, it has
been a blast and great bonding tool for
my whole family. We love to camp and go
four wheeling off-road. My Wrangler has
taken me everywhere I had had the guts
and lack of common sense to go.
A party on wheels...


Best Features

At minimum a 3" lift and oversized tires and nice rims. Add a bumping sound system, a Wilderness Racks roof rack, front mounted winch, brusg guards, running bars. Cool air intake and custom exhaust.


Worst Features

Same as above. Also add posi-trac rear differential and custom gear ratios.

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


Review

I have been a life long fan of the Jeep
since my father had one when I was a
kid. I finally was able to purchase
one this summer and I must say it is
living upto my expectation. My friend
took me up into the mountains this fall
between the rocky climbs and the giant
mudholes this vehicle is unstoppable.
Most fun I ever had in a car. I used to
drive small sports cars, I don't think
I will ever go back. Anxiously awaiting
our first snowfall so I can have some
fun with my dad.


Best Features

Convertible, go anywhere ability, roofbar speakers.


Worst Features

None.

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


Review

The 2003 Jeep Wrangler X is an
excellent vehicle, perfect for mild to
moderate off roading. Also with the 4.o
6 cyl. it has the power you need to
perform well on or off road. The
interior is limiting but well designed
for the amount of space available. All
the X's controls are easily within
reach and head room is in abundance
(even more when the top is off).
Storage space is a definate downfall
unless no one is in the folding back
seat.


Best Features

The over head factory sound bar makes listening to your favorite songs easy when the top is off and is more convenient because the volume doesnt need to be as high to hear the music over road noise as it was in previous models.


Worst Features

The option of disabling the positraction on the front wheels while in four wheel drive would be nice when using the 4wd in non off road conditions.
