2006 Jeep Wrangler SUV Rubicon 2dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This vehicle is a tremendous amount of fun with the soft top and removable doors. Power is more than adequate for its size and weight. Extremely reliable; the only maintenance issues I have had in two and a half years are regular oil and filter changes every 3000 miles. Gas mileage is 15-17 mpg. Its a rough, loud ride, but its a Jeep not a Camry. Unstoppable off road. Cargo room and towing capacity are limited, but again you must realize what this vehicle is designed for and what it is not designed to do. Every vehicle has limitations and the Jeep is no exception. But it excels at what it was designed to do and I love it. I would buy another without hesitation.


Best Features

Removable top, removable doors, six- speed manual, small size, great turning radius, off road abilities surpass everything on the market bar none, ease of maintenance, tremendous aftermarket support, unique appearance and history compared to other vehicles in the bland and boring SUV market


Worst Features

None whatsoever. Its a real four wheel drive that makes no excuses for what it is and it does what it was designed to do extremely well. If you can't deal with roll up windows, wind noise, small size and a rough ride, go look at something else.

Review

I love this Jeep. It is amazing what it can do off road. One of my favorite things to do is ride with the top down and the doors off. I have been impressed with how reliable this vehicle has been. I have had better service with this Jeep than I have had with my high end imports. I now have 20k on it and it's still going with no issues.


Best Features

The option to take the doors off.


Worst Features

None.

Review

I traded in a 1992 Mercedes 300SL for a 2006 Rubicon. I've driven SL class MB for 20 years. My friends were shocked. The bottom line is I love the Rubicon and have no regrets on the trade. The simplicity of the design and excellent build quality are great. Mileage is only about 16.5 mpg. The highway ride is surprising compliant considering the offroad capabilities. Maneuverability in tight areas is outstanding. The fun factor is +10. The Rubicon has already proved to be a versatile work horse at our farm. Aftermarket parts support is amazing and one of the reason I selected a Jeep. "It's a Jeep thing" has real meaning to me now.


Best Features

Simplicity of design is my favorite feature. The Rubicon's beefy drivetrain is so robust it makes keeping the vehicle +20 years a legitimate option. I wanted the last year of the TJ because it's destined to be an instant collector's classic.


Worst Features

It's tough to find fault. My only improvement suggestion is the stereo speakers are a little weak on sound quality.

Review

This is my first jeep...long time coming but I have had a burning desire to own one since my junior year in high school (98). It's everything I hoped for and more, every time I drive it I love something new about it. If you don't have one, get one...you will be grinning like the village idiot after running over the most treacherous potholes and banked driveways that would bottom out a regular car's undercarriage.


Best Features

Styling, unsurpassed off-road capability, no-nonsense functionality, virtually no blind spots, dual top group... the Jeep wave:) Can't wait till the first big snowfalls so I can be a good Samaritan and pull out stuck cars and maybe a semi or two.


Worst Features

Ability to lock tailgate from inside instead of using key, more tire options. I really wanted BF Goodrich All Terrain Tires.

Review

I traded in my 1994 Wrangler for a 2006 Rubicon. I was [just] looking at both the FJ Cruiser and the Hummer(s) but, I have to be faithful to the Jeep line. In owning a Jeep the last 10 years, I wanted to keep with a legacy. Plus, it IS the Jeep thing! Plus, best of all, I know the engine and it is easy to work with after working on my '94 4.0 these past years!


Best Features

More comfort (over my 94). Reliable/very fun off road/6 speed manual transmission with cruise for the highways. CD player with 7 speakers/dual tops/wheels. All of it!


Worst Features

Gas mileage, but hey, it's a Jeep.
