2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
After 60 years the Jeep as we know it and have come to love is very much improved, but sadly, with much more to prove. I personally own the 08 Jeep JK, Sahara, Wrangler "California Concept". I got a great deal, considering the bad economy but read my other comments below to appreciate my findings.
Exterior: Very manly and beefy looks and the wider stance offers better handling on the highway and better ability to take corners harder. Interior: Much more room than ever before and I like the seats capability to "rise or lower" just by cranking a lever up or down and the power windows are nice.
For the highway-merging speed is slow. uphill inclines on roads and ability to overtake a vehicle are poor. Where is the V8! I'm averaging 13.1 mpg!! Dealerships need to include Mopar shops on site!
