2005 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
I bought an 05 Wrangler used...I guess...it only had 3,000 miles on it. I traded in an 03 VW Golf. Sure, the gas mileage is very different, but on 80 degree plus days with the top down and the doors off, I somehow seem not to mind. My friends have Wranglers, and said the first New England winter where I pass some poor soul on the side of the road in a Golf who cant handle the snow on the roads will only make me smile as I pull him along with the jeep.
Soft top, 4X4 and the sound system is great.
I would say gas mileage, but I do not want to loose any power from the motor.
