2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
I was a bit doubtful that the Jeep would work as good as it looks. I'm very impressed with the ride, handling, quality and surprisingly, the gas mileage. The interior ergonomics are very weak, it's like no one actually sat in one before okaying it for production. So far I've had 2 odd occurrences: A one time puddle of gear oil under the rear end and I was driving down the highway and the dash lights came on, the windshield wipers wiped once and it never happened again. Summary: I love it
Overall style, nice ride and handling, adequate performance, decent fuel economy for a brick, A good value.
Upper edge of door panel is too square and digs into my elbow! Couldn't they have rounded it off a little? Very odd location of Overdrive button. Why isn't it on the shifter?!? Where's the ashtray to stash little items? Why no map pockets in the rear doors? Needs more storage pockets and cubbies
