2006 Jeep Wrangler SUV SE 2dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I am a very maintenance conscious person, oil changes every 3000 miles, tranny fluid, antifreeze, everything. I have had so many issues with jeep. I have never had this jeep off road at all, i use it to drive back and forth to work. I have had to have two engine rebuilds, the manual transmission rebuilt, the transfer case rebuilt and many other engine problems including repeat censor problems. Most of my problems happened while it was still under warranty but i spent more time in rental cars then i did driving my own car it seems like. the death wobble was fixed when i bought aftermarket parts but jeep knows this is a problem and don't fix it. very poor quality gets maybe 12 mpg.


Best Features

I like the looks of the jk and when it is running i love the 6 speed manual transmission. the four wheel drive works great in our harsh winters.


Worst Features

Quality of the vehicle. The jeep seems cheaply built and lacks major power and mpg. The death wobble is a known problem and is easily fixed with after market parts, if others can figure this out why can't the car maker? really need to look at quality on future builds

Review

i bought my 2006 rhd wrangler 4x4, thinking it was a smart decision. thought it would be a great investment. durability & dependability. was going to be the perfect choice for a mail carrier vehicle. in 6,000 miles i have replaced ac/heater switch twice, towed once cause gear shifter cable broke. ran hot on me regularly. transmission fell out before i put 6,000 miles on it. if you purchase a jeep you better have a great warranty because believe me, you will need it. it was just out of factory warranty when i bought it at 73,000 miles and it has been one expense after another. everyone on these reviews sound like it is so great. like to hear if they still feel that way after 80,000 miles.


Best Features

liked the height of the vehicle and turning around ability. good looking vehicle, eye catcher. liked the right hand drive for my job. was great when ran right. felt like i could go anywhere with it and wasn't afraid if weather was bad are roads were bad.


Worst Features

jeep needs to stand behind their products better than they did on this model. they should at least give a 100,000 mile on power train. interior is so cheap made. could improve material quality. should make extended warranties available for their rhd jeeps. jeep wont even cover a rhd jeep used to deliver mail. that's a big joke seeing how they are designed for mail carriers. buy new and trade before warranty runs out. seems like the rubicon and extended jeeps are much better, even the 4 cyl. sounds like it is a better quality and performance than most of the owners of the rhd jeeps i've read of. could have lost my job owning this vehicle, thank god i kept my buicks for back up!!!!

Review

I've had my Jeep for 4 months. We have had issue with the tires wobbling so bad that the front end shakes - took it back to dealership first time, the stabilizer was replaced. Started back up again after 1 month. They argued that nothing wrong - not giving up, they looked again and found that the bushing needed replacing. They said this is an issue with Dodge vehicles. Had the map sensor replaced also - only 36,000 miles. Hopefully this is the last of the issues Otherwise - LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT


Best Features

the freedom to drive where I want - even though haven't taken it off road. The top down - oh yeah!


Worst Features

gas mileage and have were it is easier to put back on the top

Review

Zero problems with this 63,000 miles Jeep. Routinely get 21-22 mpg back and forth to work, same on the highway - a little touchy at highway speeds, but great to drive to the beach, top-down!


Best Features

Fell in love with vinyl seats all over again - these are tough and usually, passengers have to do a second look to see if they are leather!


Worst Features

Pure Jeep, leave it alone! You want a car, get a car.
