No power

2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


For a vehicle that they've been making for a long, long time, this thing is lacking in so many areas. My biggest complaint is that it's horribly under powered. Most V6s are pushing 250 to 300 horses, this thing rates at around 202. Mine's a 6 speed manual..forget about passing. The lack of a hood latch is almost dangerous. On a windy day or when a truck passes the hood slams up and down. Those big rubber bands holding down the hood just don't cut it. The soft top is not an easy off and on, they could and should have done better. In a nutshell, never again! What once was an American icon is now pretty much junk.

Best Features

Fun when the top is down.

Worst Features

More power. Better hood latch. easier to use soft top. More power, and did I say MORE POWER. My wife's 8 year old 4 cylinder Honda CR-V runs circles around my Jeep.
