2012 Jeep Wrangler: Basic

November 09, 2011

 2012 Jeep Wrangler: Basic

When I took our long-term 2012 Jeep Wrangler for the first time last night, I wasn't surprised by the old-school crank windows. I'm sure they'll come in handy when wading across streams or whatever.

But I was surprised by that door check. It's just a piece of canvas cloth. I wonder how that will hold up over a few years...

And the mirrors surprised me too. No power or remote adjust, which isn't a big deal for the driver's side. But the passenger mirror? How are you supposed to adjust that by yourself? That's a lot of iterative walking around to the other side of the vehicle. I just left it.

I suppose some people think that the absence of features is what makes a Jeep a Jeep.

How romantic.
