Upgrading to the Larger Wrangler
By From Florida on
2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
We upgraded from a 2008 Wrangler to the 2010 Wrangler Unlimited. No problems with the former except for the lack of a second set of doors. Both models turn heads. Ride quality on the highway greatly improved with the Unlimited's longer wheelbase, something we were not looking for but very please to discover. The hardtop blocks out most noise and the front seats have lift out panels for an open road feel. I have read many expert reviews that say the V-6 engine lacks power. I put a K&N air filter in from the start and have never had a problem merging into traffic. May be a message in there.
It looks like a Jeep, rides like a car and can be opened up like a convertible. Fun anyway you look at it. The ground clearance is great when it rains, and it really rains in Florida. Very stable ride, even in corners if you do not hot dog it.
We added a rear cargo tray, the carpet is a magnet for all forms of lint, dirt and grass. Power mirrors would be nice. Rear seats should fold down flat, rear seat headrest are too tall when the seats are up, blocks rear vision, we keep the rear seat down until it is needed.
