2008 Jeep Wrangler SUV Rubicon 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This truck is great. With the right tires its great driving in all weather. Goes through everything with ease. Its the perfect truck for WNY weather. Snow driving couldn't be more fun. Road noise and wind noise are bad but it is a box. Awesome off road truck. Nice cause it can fit in small areas. Real easy to see all the way around the truck. Great breaks. No complaints other than noise and fuel mileage. Its a babe magnet. LOL


Best Features

Off road handling. Comes with hard and soft top. Nav system with 60 gigabytes of memory.


Worst Features

Bring inline 6 back for more power.come with better ground clearance standard.

2008 Jeep Wrangler SUV Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My driver's side door latch keeps coming loose and making a clunking sound when I go over even the smallest of bumps. The dealer has repaired it 5 times and the noise came back again. I'm in the process of taking the car to Lemon law arbitration to force the dealer to give me my money back. Jim in MA

2008 Jeep Wrangler SUV X 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I purchased an X model with the 24S option package that provides better off road capability than the Sahara while giving up very little of the convenience and none of the comfort. I added rock rails to protect the underside of the body's rocker area. Options include the wonderful Freedom top, automatic transmission, Sirius radio, Side air bags and fog lights. Compared to the previous iterations of the Wrangler, the new JK series is vastly better in terms of quiet and ride isolation. If you've own an older Wrangler, you will be astounded at the refinement of the JK inside and out, on road and off road. Fuel mileage around town is 16 mpg, while getting a surprising 25+ mpg highway.


Best Features

Owning a Wrangler is really a lifestyle. The Wrangler is adaptable to any weather and driving conditions. Go anywhere and have fun doing it. No better power train warranty in the business and a low-cost service contract extends the lifetime coverage to the entire vehicle.


Worst Features

The basic sound system is only adequate. Better speakers are needed. Freedom tops should be delivered with storage bags for the removable front sections.

2008 Jeep Wrangler SUV X 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

2008 JK is very much improved, from previous models .It rides much better than YJ and TJ's. The only bad thing is you can't reach the back seat.It could use a little more power, but nothing is perfect. I have an X and it's the most affordable SUV on the planet. It also comes with a lifetime warranty, which isn't bad either. No other vehicle can you personalize like a jeep wrangler.


Best Features

Comfort, very good brakes, classic style, lifetime warranty,


Worst Features

back seat access, power

2008 Jeep Wrangler SUV Sahara 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my first jeep. I love it. Highly recommend it. I drove my first one on vacation as a rental in St Martin and immediately came home and traded in my Dodge Ram for a 2008 soft top.


Best Features

Style, turning radius, performance in the snow and height / line of sight over other vehicles


Worst Features

The Jeep engineers HAVE GOT to make it easier to get into the back seat and add a seat belt strap holder so it does not flop in the wind while the top is down - major annoyance.
