2002 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My wife bought this new and, aside from the top needing to be replaced every few years, it's a great vehicle. 112,000+ miles and it is as strong as it can be for a 4 cylender engine. Highway mileage stinks but, it's a Jeep, never meant to be an economy commuter car. You will not get stuck under anything less than a 3' deep snowfall. And, even then we were only detained for about 5 minutes until we rocked back out the way we came. We've taken it through some gnarly situations and, she's breezed through easily. I've driven Jeeps since 1966 and nothing else. If you want a full out, barebone 4x4, the SE is it. We added a few things to ease our aging bones but, nothing more than custom padded seats. Want reliability: buy a Jeep. As the commercials used to say: they wrote the book on 4-wheel drive.

2002 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have this Jeep for almost 3 years. Here is what I have to say about these certain topics:
Fuel Economy: It has the same fuel economy of a Honda Civic that has several holes in the fuel line. I average around 16 mpg during the winter and 19 mpg in the summer (All Stock Setup, Automatic Transmission). Do not buy this car if your concision about fuel. Do not drive over 110km/h..you wont make it to your destination.
Driving: Interior is stone age compared to 2007+ models. Sound system sucks, speakers are made out of paper..literally. Off road is very fun, you wont get stuck. Getting into 4wL is tricky (high chance of grinding your gears)
Reliability: Great, gas cap problem is common.


Best Features

Off road feature is great during the winter but impacts fuel economy greatly. Looks very aggressive. I get lots of positive comments. Lots of aftermarket parts, be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for these aftermarket parts. These aftermarket parts also affect fuel economy, For example, upgrading to larger tires (33''-35'' tires), expect around 12-14 mpg. Soft top nice on hot days, doors are also removable (amazing driving experience). Soft top is expensive, i paid 1100$ for a soft top from BestTop.


Worst Features

Fuel Economy sucks! Interior needs improvement. Sound system sucks. Do not buy if your a student on a budget, sure you'll look cool but you'll also hate life (weigh your priorities)

Review

This is my first Jeep and I love it! Got a good deal on a used Wrangler Sport with only 54,000 miles on it and it's everything I expected. Yep, the ride is stiff, gas mileage around 16 mpg and there's a good bit of wind noise but that's what you get with a Jeep! You wouldn't buy a horse and then complain about no air conditioning, would you? Enjoy it for what it is, a fun, go anywhere vehicle that you can modify as much or little as you want. You can get it muddy, run over bumps, drive through ice and water and if you take care of it, it will get you where you want to go. Fill the thing with gas and go find an adventure!


Best Features

Removable top, no frills design, high clearance.


Worst Features

Hmm, a quicker way to get the hard top on and off would be nice.

2002 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Excellent performance. The soft top is the weak link, as the Florida sun bakes the stitching and the roof falls apart. The engine is solid V 6 and only needed the head gasket replaced at 100,000 miles. Other maintainence was within normal limits.


Best Features

Fun to drive with the roof down.


Worst Features

Better soft top.
