This is my first Jeep and I love it! I am pleasantly surprised with the handling and power because of all the articles I read which advocated the lack of power. Further, I was worried about fuel consumption; however, this jeep gets better mileage in both city and highway then my Toyota Tacoma, 4x4 TRD. I have a six speed which may negate a lot of the issues surfaced by other owners... The bottom line is that it's an American made vehicle that looks and drives great!

Shifting needs to be tighter especially from 5th to 6th gear. I've hit Reverse a couple times and I've driven standards for a while. The power isn't an issue and mileage isn't bad for a 4X$ but I'd love to see a diesel with improved mileage and torque.
