2004 Jeep Wrangler SUV SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my third Wrangler I've owned.
By far, it is one of the most fun
vehicles produced today. Top off in
the summer, 4WD in the winter. Fuel
economy is terrible, but you can't
expect much out of a tank with a
tent. New top design has made it one
of the quietest Wranglers yet.


Best Features

New top is quieter than in past. New 4 cyl. engine is more powerful.


Worst Features

Fuel economy.

2004 Jeep Wrangler SUV X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have a buddy who has a Sahara and I
loved to drive it. I had talked about
getting a Jeep for over a year. Well,
my car died and I finally did it. I
wanted the Sahara, but they didn't have
any on the lot, so I got the X with
added A/C, tinted rear windows &
upgraded wheels/sound bar. I live in
New Orleans, so the ride on the streets
can be a little bumpy, but it is a
blast to drive! If you've ever thought
about it . . . Just do it!!


Best Features

Rear folding/removable seat, soft top, rear tinted windows, 4L I6 engine standard, manual tranny! Heck, everything!


Worst Features

Driver's side tip & slide seat, A/C should be standard & should add the feature that the Unlimited soft top has, where you can just fold back the top above the driver/passenger front seats.

2004 Jeep Wrangler SUV Unlimited 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first Jeep. I remember driving a 1983 CJ
-7 and this Unlimited blows it a away. The ride is
shall I say "Tons Smoother" than the old Jeeps. I
traded my Toyota Tundra in on this vehicle and
have not regretted it. I was used to the Toyota build
quailty and was not dissapointed with this Jeep.
Yes, it doesn't have the same creature comforts as
my Tundra, but for a Jeep, I impressed! Arranged
the whole deal over the Internet with the dealer and
it was painless. Does pay to shop around and play
the other dealers against each other.


Best Features

The open air driving. The soft top takes a little practice, but I absolutley love the "sundowner" version. Impressed with the "tightness" of the controls. Haven't averaged the gas mileage yet, but it doesn't matter. This Jeep is too fun to drive!


Worst Features

This Jeep needs to have factory standard door-sill protectors, still getting used to having to lift my legs when I get in and out of vehicle.

2004 Jeep Wrangler SUV SE 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I recently purchased a jeep wrangler,
and its definitely the most fun car I
have ever driven. The manual 6 cyl has
lots of power, great pickup, and the
ride is smooth. It sits high above the
road, so you see pretty much
everything. The only bad part about
the jeep is that the ride can be a bit
noisy, and unless you buy it new, its
difficult to find a decently priced
wrangler with air conditioning. All of
these negatives are easily
overshadowed by the positives of the
car.


Best Features

Height (very high off the road) Power


Worst Features

The only way to improve on the noise level is to re-design the jeep, which isnt worth the trouble. Its best the way it is.
