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


I've had this vehicle for a year, so far it has worked without a problem (knock on wood). Consumer Reports was disappointed with it. They were expecting a Lexus Sports Activity Vehicle with every computer enhanced stability control system. This is a vehicle designed to take a beating in the harshest environments and bring you home. It's not designed to drive you to yoga class in total comfort and burled walnut trim. The Wrangler will get you through 2 feet of snow & 2 feet of water without advanced yuppie technology. It was designed to ford water, and have 8.6" of ground clearance for off-road adventures. You can't do that in a Lexus. If you want a tough vehicle, go for the Wrangler not a Lux SUV.

Best Features

There is nothing like pulling people's $55k stabili-trak SUVs out of snow banks along the Garden State Parkway. The Jeep has utility in every corner, along with a full line of accessories such as storage racks, off road lights, heavy duty tools, travel gear and more all designed for the Jeep!

Worst Features

Jeep should air a TV ad that shows an Infinity FX-45 going up a ski slope then sliding off the trail just as a Wrangler (which can actually climb a mountain) pulls up and winches the Fx- 45 to safety.
