Fun for the short-term

ReviewI've really enjoyed my '93 Wrangler in
the six years I've owned it, but it's
cost me a bit: new clutches, emergency
brakes, alternator--reasonably above
average in the repair cost/budget. It's
a better all around vehicle that might
appear if you don't have kids, etc. The
*big* problem, which is forcing me to
sell it for salvage right now, is
hideous premature rusting out of the
entire undercarriage (I live in New
England, in a coastal region, but...).
The entire 1/4" metal underbody has
rusted to the consistency of paper, and
other Wrangler owners have told me of
similar experiences. Just 10 years, 70K
miles, and the car has been rendered
Best FeaturesV-6 engine has real kick, much better gas mileage than other SUVs, extremely fun to drive and offroad in.
Worst FeaturesFirst, *don't get this car if you live in a salt air or salted road climate*, as rust protection is apparently as bad as it gets. Stock speakers blew very quickly, and would have required complete dash/steering column disasembly to extract/replace.
