2003 Jeep Wrangler SUV Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I LOVE my Jeep. No other vehichle I've
owned has given me such a good feeling
to drive. The Jeep just feels so right
in so many ways. I took her
out "wheelin" right after break-in
period. I only took her on what
wheelers call "the doe run", (easy
trails), after all, it is a brand
new vehicle. Only modification is
bigger tires. (I really don't
understand why they even put small
tires on at the factory, it just isn't
right on a jeep.) I was absolutely
amazed at the obstacles I went over
easily. After the 2nd worst winter in
NY's history with it, and now a hot
summer, I can truly say this is a
vehicle for all seasons.


Best Features

Of course my favorite feature is that the top comes off. I love the feel it has driving too. It's peppy, rides nice for what it is, and fits in really tight spots. Has the ability to get you anywhere, anytime.


Worst Features

The only improvement I suggest is the gas mileage....BUT... we must realize the factory has guidelines for emissions it must meet. There are ways of course we owners can improve the mileage....just not enough room here to explain it further.

Review

I HAVE BEEN SO PLEASED WITH THE
COMPLETE VEHICLE THAT I JUST WENT OUT
AND ORDERED A NEW 2004 EXACTLY LIKE MY
2000. I WENT IN TO ORDER A NEW VEHICLE
WASN'T SURE WHAT I WANTED, SALESMAN
ASKED ME HOW I LIKED MY PRESENT
VEHICLE, I TOLD HIM IT DID EVERYTHING I
WANTED IN A LEASURE TYPE VEHICLE. HE
ASKED ME IF THERE WAS ANYTHING I WOULD
CHANGE. THE MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT
I WOULD BE GIVING UP IN ANY OTHER
VEHICLE I MIGHT BUY LED ME TO ORDER A
NEW WRANGLER JUST LIKE THE ONE I WAS
TURNING IN. MY WIFE AND I ARE JUST
APPROACHING RETIREMENT AGE BUT STILL
LOOK FORWARD TO THE 900PLUS MILE TRIPS
WE HAVE TAKEN AND WILL BE TAKING IN OUR
JEEP.


Best Features

UTILITY, EASE OF GETTING AROUND IN TRAFFIC, PEACE OF MIND IN WINTER DRIVING, JUST PLAIN FUN.


Worst Features

TOP WILL NEVER BE EASY TO PUT UP AND TAKE DOWN,

2003 Jeep Wrangler SUV X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

After lusting after one for years I
finally got myself a Wrangler. It's a
convertible, an SUV a pick-up, an off
roader, it does it all. If you want a
perfect 2nd car and a week end fun
machine, you could not ask for more.


Best Features

Convertible. 4 wheel drive. Utility and more fun than I've have with a car in years. Seats are surprisingly comfortable and offer more support lengthwise than most everyday cars.


Worst Features

Fuel economy could be better, but it is a heavy vehicle.

Review

After several months with my Jeep, I
am very happy with my purchase. I
only wish the weather would cooperate
so I could leave my top off more
often. For 2003, the seats were re-
designed and they are much more
comfortable than prior years. Total
Fun in the Sun!


Best Features

A convertible top that is actually not too difficult to put up and down (for a Jeep). And its pretty quiet when up.


Worst Features

More power. The four cylinder has a touch time on the highway, especially with the A/C running.

Review

The Jeep is definetly a fun filled
vehicle. It says "I have no boundaries
and nothing to tie me down". If you
want a fun car to drive this is it. But
keep in mind that this is a brute that
will go through some gas quick. With
all the technology today you think they
could make it a little more gas
efficient. Have no doubts, this vehicle
isnt made for paved roads, but for the
outback. Its only true use isnt in a
concrete jungle but four wheeling out
in the countryside. As a fun vehicle it
has no match, as a city vehicle it
could use some modifications.


Best Features

4.0 litre engine very responsive glad I didnt get the 2.4 Fun to just drive, I like the handling. Feels strong, safe and looks great.


Worst Features

Engine could be better suited for city use, at least in gas efficiency. Also seems to need smoother power when going over 55mph. Seems to idle suddenly higher and gives the impression it has a hard time.
