2005 Jeep Wrangler X 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Lots of fun around town or off-road, family enjoys local day trips when the weather is just right. Very easy to use 5-speed manual transmission, operation of interior buttons is simple and are a good size (important since the Wrangler is not the smoothest ride). I have just the hard top option, should of gone with the soft top. I was 50 miles away from my home with the top off in the middle of a rain storm. The extra noise from soft top is worth the extra freedom of Michigan weather. I very much enjoy the Wrangler and hope to have it for the next twenty years or so.


Best Features

My doors have been off for about two months in a row now and it just a great open air feeling. VERY simple design, able to add on almost any accessories that money can buy from many different shops.


Worst Features

Side mirrors on body not doors. (I have been without side mirrors for two months also). Maybe it's my driving habits, but my stock tires are about 3/4 used up with 18,000 on them. Cost of accessories is high.

2005 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4WD 2dr Convertible SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have owned my Wrangler Sport since October of 2004. It is without exception the most fun vehicle I have ever owned. Probably the most modifiable vehicle in existence, it can be customized to meet the owners own personality. A go anywhere vehicle that looks good getting there.


Best Features

4x4, small manueverable, easy to park, variety of tops (plus you can remove it completely, lots of modifications available.


Worst Features

More engine options. While the 4.0 6 is more than enough for adventure, a V- 8 would make towing easier.

Review

I wish i would have bought one 10 years ago! It`s fun to drive. Short and compact. I usually trade my vehicles in every two to three years. I have a feeling I may keep this Jeep for many years.


Best Features

I like the old style look. I hope there are no plans to change it.


Worst Features

The transfer case could be raised. Fuel economy. Perhaps better seats. I would not make a long trip in this vehicle.

Review

I love this thing. Will own it til it dies. The only thing I dislike is the gas mileage. But I enjoy the vehicle thoroughly.


Best Features

Convertible, ruggedness, capabilities.


Worst Features

They should comprimise some trunk space and put more leg room in the back seat. It's very awkward
