2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Had this rpoblem ongoing since it came out of showroom. Everyday problems getting into certain gears or shifter popping out of gear. In and out oof dealers for 3 years. Now recently wouldnt go into gear as gear plates stuck and had to get it towed to dealer. "Now maybe theyll see the problem" Nightmare from day one back to lawyer for lemo law.


Best Features

Driving in snow other then that useless...


Worst Features

With many dealers be honest on build faults customers will respect you more instead of lieing. More comfortable driver space for taller peope, transmission really is horrible.

2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my first Jeep. The interior design is excellent. Power is OK but the fuel economy is poor. The issue with the leaking doors/top on the soft top is troublesome. Ive had mine back to the dealer twice. They finally showed me a notice from the manufacturer that basically said it leaks and there is nothing to be done. Thanks Chrysler for leaving the drain plug in the floor and giving the 2.0GPA engineers a job at least theyre not building bridges. If Id known the doors/top leaked and every time it rains the carpet would get wet it would have been a deal breaker on the soft top. Oddly enough the wind noise is acceptable. To say the least I am not pleased the dealer has had 2 attempts to fix it, well see. Three strikes and its a lemon.


Best Features

New interior layout is great. Fun to drive with the top down. Stereo is surprisingly good.


Worst Features

Stop the soft top leak - hey Chrysler it's 2011 the Germans and Japanese can do it.

2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is my fifth Wrangler in 10 years, the last being an identical 2010. We upgraded to the 2011 from the 2010 because of the interior changes and the need to take a 3,500 mile trip over Christmas break. The interior changes in the 2011 made for a very comfortable trip. Armrests are better placed and padded. Trim is rounded rather than squared. Seats are more comfortable and access to the rear seat is improved. The acoustics are better and the 2011 had less wind noise. Gas mileage was 21 mpg overall with a difference of about a mile to the gallon noted when using 10% ethanol. We love the Jeep and just helped our daughter buy an identical black sport. Nothing like the "Jeep" wave.


Best Features

We enjoy the power, heated mirrors and the steering wheel controls.


Worst Features

Power. Can't wait until Jeep installs the 3.6 V-8. It is a Jeep, not a BMW so one has to allow for the differences. I wouldn't go back to my BMW.

Review

Just picked up my 4th Wrangler over the past 10 years. I keep thinking I'd prefer a car, but the Wrangler keeps calling me back. By far the most comfortable one yet. My previous editions were all Sahara's, but decided I wanted a different look. LOVE the Sport model, looks "tougher." Got it with Auto, Satellite, Infiniti stereo (highly recommend if you're keeping stock stereo in car), tinted windows and supplemental side airbags. New model's soft top is different, no side drip rails, interior is much more quiet. Better interior materials than 2009, comfy arm rests. Seats are more cushy and supportive. Happy to be back in Wrangler, makes me smile when I do "Jeep Wave" w/fellow Wrangler owners.


Best Features

New Top Design with no drip rails, Satellite and UConnect (bluetooth), decent stereo with Infiniti upgradge, side impact airbags.


Worst Features

Like most Wrangler owners, would love to see a new engine, rumor has new Pentastar V6 for 2012. Current engine is underpowered and not fuel efficient. But you know this when buying a Wrangler and the fun factor more than makes up for the deficiencies!

2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Took only 5 weeks from order to delivery. 2011 interior is designed far better than 2010/prior JK's. Dash layout is exceptional. Whatever you give up in fuel economy, you gain in (1) Jeep ruggedness (2) Jeep resale (3) Jeep recognizeability (4) just an ultimate Jeep coolness I can't keep wife + daughter away from Mac Daddy's ride!


Best Features

Sahara Tan exterior (it grows on you), steering wheel controls, Sport S tire package, Smooth shift 6 speed manual, soft top,


Worst Features

Brighter headlamps (aftermarket upgrade), make side marker lights blink as turn signals (aftermarket upgrade), and fuel economy (don't worry about it -- just roll!)
