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


Review

LOVE my Jeep - can't believe I waited
so long to get one. You get the same
adventure as a motorcycle only
safer!! I think I'm a Jeep Wrangler
lifer!


Best Features

Of course the Soft Top - absolutely fun and looks great!!


Worst Features

Being a woman, I do not have the hand- strength needed to put the soft-top back on by myself.

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


Review

I had my jeep for two months but had
to trade it in because after SEVERAL
close calls, I finally had an accident
when it slid into the back of another
car on wet roads. I have no doubt
that had I'd been driving a car, it
would have stopped - there was plenty
of room. It's also very difficult to
see what other vehicles are doing when
you are trying to change lanes and
merge into traffic. On the good side
though, it was a fun car and the a/c
was excellent and got cold very fast.


Best Features

Soft top roof and fast, cold a/c


Worst Features

Even though it's a jeep, i still wish it had power windows, locks, etc. Also, for safety, they need to do something about the tires, brakes, etc. so that people aren't sliding all over the wet roads!!

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


Review

After my SUV was totalled in an
accident, I decided to get the vehicle
that I wanted since I was 4 years old -
a Jeep. I am so glad that I did. I
cannot imagine getting anything else in
the future. The Jeep does not have
much pickup and not so great fuel
economy (I do have the V6) compared to
other vehicles, but that is fine by
me. I can deal with that one item for
all the other pluses.


Best Features

There is nothing like riding around in the summer with the top down and doors off. It handles an incredible amount of snow - In the northeast, it is a necessity to have a vehicle that can handle a variety of weather. The Wrangler can do it all!


Worst Features

Better fuel economy and better sound system.

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


Review

People tried to discourage me. My dad
said it was unsafe, my mom worried,
friends said it was not practical. I
AM SO GLAD I did NOT listen! I have
never had so much fun!!! It is VERY
versatile and can haul a lot. It's been
to the beach, camping & highway driving
EVERY day. It really has been fun. It
came with a hard top, but I bought a
soft top and I cannot imagine putting
the hard back on. The soft top is so
versatile and fun. It stays off all
weekend. AND it is NOT that hard to
manage. I think the Editors' reviews
were too harsh-- sound like a dad's
review! ENJOY IT


Best Features

The soft top


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, but that goes for all SUVs!

2003 Jeep Wrangler SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The SE model with 2.4L I-4 engine is
underpowered and uses a lot of gas for
an I-4. The engine seems rev
happy for an offroad engine. Gearing is
awesome in the 5 speed transmission,
although 3rd gear could stand to be a
bit lower and closer to 2nd's ratio.
Highway sppeds in excess of 65mph are
hard to reach even on a flat surface
during a calm dry day. Design, both
interior and exterior, is classic bare
basics Jeep. Overall a great car if you
are into Jeeps.


Best Features

4.10:1 gearing, highly customizable, unbeatable offroad prowess, excellent city handling, solid as a rock, very utilitarian, awesome articulation, able to fit a 31" tire in stock form.


Worst Features

Needs more low and mid range power. Standard Hard Top. Shorter front bucket seats. Gorund clearance is less than 2002 and earlier, ditch the Rubicon skid plates.
