Bought one of the first 2012 in fall of 2011 for $37K.
3.6 Pentastar was worth waiting for. Have Avg 20mpg over 74,000 miles.
Have gotten 24mpg on multiple road trips from WI to FL.
Wife drives it daily 50mi roundtrip for work and she still loves it!
Not the most comfortable, not the quietest but it is a Wrangler.
Freeedom top is awesome, we leave the hard top on and just pop the front 2 panels for sun.
Had the cylinder head issue, but dealer fixed no problem, no drama with free rental.
Love the looks, love the image (kinda like riding a Harley).
Just got some trade numbers and dealer offered us $27,000 to trade on a new Wrangler.
Resale second to none.
