Porpoise in Jeep's clothing
By Dave S. on


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


Was originally looking for cheapest,
most reliable convertible top vehicle,
and like many, I was hooked upon the
first test drive. You feel every bump,
but it's in character, and I love every
minute of it. That is, until you have
to panic stop on the freeway, or stop
at anything over 40 mph or so; this
thing goes into a very unsettling
continous front-to-rear hop, while
diving noticeably to one side. Mileage
is nothing short of pathetic, but
again, in character (amazing,
considering it's not carbed!!). For
those who definitely appreciate
simplicity with a touch of attitude and

Best Features

Simplicity of design, driving position, quick heater, parallel parking ability

Worst Features

God, please put a beefier, higher- performance braking system on this thing. Soft top glass/plastic gets damaged way too easily. Suspension and undercarriage parts are susceptible to rapid, but minor rusting.
