2006 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
Review
Bought this new and drove it 200 miles down the front range and then across the San Luis Valley of CO. Next day took it mountain climbing in the San Juans. I call that a break-in! The 4-banger has plenty of oomph for the highways and the passes, and seems to be getting decent mileage (although it's too new to really judge). The six-speed tranny combined with lo-range will have you creeping over the rough stuff at less than walking speed, or stirring the gears on the road like you're in a top-down sports car. Only in a Jeep! Comfy seats, good looking all-around, and a steal at the employee price. Affordable, practical, capable, and fun transportation.
Favorite Features
The sheer simplicity of it all. Go anywhere, do anything capability - and far more comfortable than CJs and YJs of old. Slab-sided, classic architecture. DOHC four has an amusing exhaust note that reminds me of old English sports cars.
Suggested Improvements
The marketing guys are clearly at work on this trim level. If you want any flexibility you've got to spring for the X or Sport. How about a 4.11 rear- end option with some factory 31" rubber, guys? The 4 can handle it, and it sure would look good.
