2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Great around-town SUV; it's small, maneuverable and fun to drive. Off pavement, it's as tough as a 4X4 can get. The Unlimited's ride is excellent, and upscale options now make this a very civilized choice for people who want a no-nonsense, ultra-reliable vehicle to get around in. Plenty of cargo room. Back seat folds down and is removable for extra storage. New 6-speed transmission is a breeze to shift; clutch pedal is light, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are excellent. Not your average SUV - far more practical and useful, especially off-road.

Favorite Features

6-cylinder engine is gutsy and ultra-reliable. Seating is very comfortable. Anti-theft ignition, key protection and keyed-alike locking fuel cap are great features for city dwellers. CD player is perfectly placed in the dash.

Suggested Improvements

Driver's side is a bit cramped - not much room for your left arm. No armrest. Door handle orientation is backward, IMO. Optional bug screen should be offered as well. Seat height adjustment would be nice too.
