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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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

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!


Favorite 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!


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

This is the second Jeep I have owned. I use to drive a 1995 Jeep Cherokee and now went to the 06 Wrangler. Love the car every since I have test driven it and taken it off the lot. Good pick- up for a Four Cylinder and not bad gas mileage been averaging 21 MPG with Freeway driving and Country highway's (Lighted Highways). 4x4 is excellent. Wish the a/c reached the back seats, a center storage console was included and the front passenger airbag shut - off switch was included but other than that I would recommend this vehicle to anyone considering a four by four.


Favorite Features

Shifts smooth, decent gas mileage, 4x4 nice, convertible.


Suggested Improvements

Better A/C fan to reach back, included more standard features, power side view mirrors.

Review

This is the coolest vehicle and lots of fun! I wish It had come with a few other options like a console and steps and "cruise-control" other than that I love it!! its a nice quiet smooth ride the only downside is the "gas" mileage is not so good!! other than that you"ll be VERY HAPPY!


Favorite Features

4WD for snow driving, soft top for summer and u can drive over curves with it. Radio is okay should upgrade to better speakers but nice. Not good for Florida cut the back heats up and a/c doesn't reach very well


Suggested Improvements

Better a/c and cruise control for 6speed and should come with steps needs better speakers for highway bigger standard tire size would be nice too. Maybe a car starter package for 6speed so u can cool off cuz of soft top get hot inside. Better standard seating too is needed, better mats/flares
