2005 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
I bought this vehicle (2005 Jeep Wrangler Sport) to plow a big driveway and it did not disappoint. It’s small size and turning radius helps in plowing tight areas. However, the road salt and chemicals the state puts on the road has literally eaten up my oil pan, transmission pan and brake lines. The interior within the engine compartment has severely rusted, as well as the undercarriage and it has less than 50k miles on it- love the Jeep, not the cost to repair and the undercarriage rust issues.

This vehicle is not fast, does not stop quickly and will beat you up on any journey over 50 miles. It maxes out at 80mph which is good because it becomes unstable after 70mph. It's noisy and rides rough (bouncy) and quick braking can be scary. Now for the good. It's cool to drive, the ladies like them, they can go anywhere if outfitted right, the 4.0L engine is bullet proof and the transmission is stiff but durable. The resale value is incredible. Edmunds isn't accurate with resale values as they grossly undervalue Wranglers by thousands of dollars. You will see this as you investigate the purchase of a used Wrangler. A fun car that requires careful driving habits. 4 star rating is for fun factor.
