1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

I have had my Jeep since 2000 & 130K miles. It is a blast to drive. The 4.0 is bulletproof. I have had to replace several parts, transmission, transfer case, exhaust manifold, rear axle (3 times), & radiator. If you push this thing much off road you will have to replace something. Gas mileage is horrible, w/ 33" tires I am getting about 10 mpg in town. Aerodynamics are not helping gas mileage. Turning radius is tight. Not for long trips. Can't wait to get rid of mine.


Best Features

Styling, off road performance, engine


Worst Features

Make the dana 44 rear axle standard, improve gas mileage, vinyl flooring

Review

I have had this third Jeep bought new in the swamps of Mississippi to the mountains of Utah. It has been a blast all the way. On one adventure my wife and I challenged ourselves to a 35 mile ORV trail in southern Utah and enjoyed skirting along a few mountains without difficulty. Having owned a few sports cars over the decades, including one with 12 cylinders, there is nothing more exhilarating as the freedom of getting off the beaten road and going were few dare.

1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

Used all highway, never offroad. Serviced only at Jeep dealerships. All maintenance in the owners manual followed on time. Has blown four rear differentials, numerous electrical problems with airbags, heater fan controls, lights, radio, turn signals etc. Radiator started literally coming apart at 4 years. Paint just started falling off after 3 years, all the plastic on the exterior faded white after two years. Seats splitting apart and seat belts coming apart at the seams after one year.


Best Features

Resale value.


Worst Features

The government should have let Chrysler go bankrupt in the 1980's and let a company that knows how cars are made and doesn't get parts from the lowest bidder purchase the Jeep line.

Review

Fun to drive year round. I took it mudding and not have have it in four wheel drive. It a Jeep can do about anything


Best Features

It's universal. Fun times calls for doors/top off, cold weather doors/top on. It's fun and practical, plus looks good. Also the military used it, so you know it's reliable.


Worst Features

Better radio and better fuel gauge

Review

I love my Jeep! It has plenty of power for such a small SUV. I have not added any custom parts but plan too. It rides and drive great. Gas mileage is not so good.


Best Features

The 4-wheel drive gets great traction.


Worst Features

The gas mileage could use some improvements.
