2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This my 2nd unlimited 1st 2007 2wd Sahara 53k no problems, this one 09 4wd Sahara and love it 18 mpg city 20 hwy has both tops changing to soft now for spring so much better than old wranglers. I had no water leaks at all with either and I believe people arn't realizing its a Jeep not a Acura SUV, but the ride is outstanding, very satisfied but do worry about Chrysler rep. Has decent pwr but a small v8 would be great, mine even has leather seating I wouldn't have wanted but its worked out fine nice quality


Best Features

versatility and freedom top, great stereo, 32" stock tires


Worst Features

small V8, bring back the scrambler (like ford sport trac)

2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Problems from day 1, water leaks in like a river (hard top), can't be fixed and caused rust in only a few months. Underpowered, driven 4cly cars that have more power. Had a cracked radiator. Many electric problems, odometer not working, windows not working, doors locking on their own, and more. The seats will kill your back, very uncomfortable. Headlights are VERY poor, worthless if you do a lot of night driving. Bought brand new and this all happened in the first 4 months of having it. The only good thing to say about it is that it preforms well off road.


Best Features

Getting rid of it, has been a nightmare owning. The lemon law really saved me.


Worst Features

Stop selling them until they can be made leak free, it's not a jeep thing. Give it seats that are comfortable and an engine that can at least compete with a moped.

2009 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My 09 Rubi does everything I've asked. If I wanted great gas mileage I would have bought a Yaris, high performance on the road a mustang and tow a trailer a pickup. This is a fun vehicle that does a lot of things well, but off roading excellent.


Best Features

Rubicon off road system, easy to maneuver, hill start assist.


Worst Features

Plastic fenders that do not stain so easily. Offer a sun roof vice the 3 piece top. Put the window controls on the DOOR panel where they belong.

Review

Well, being this the first time I own a Wrangler, I do not feel like I have too much to compare. All I have to say right now is that having one it’s a lot of fun for me and for my family as well. It is a totally different sort of car, not comfortable at all, but it is a jeep. Not good on gas efficiency, but again it is a jeep and you have to pay for the fun part. First thing first, I recommend everyone is to upgrade the rims and tires; the factory ones are ridiculous for a jeep as well the plastic bumpers.

2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I was so excited to get my good looking red rock 4dr Jeep! It looks great and I purchased it with all the bells and whistles. (navi, big tires hardtop) two days after having it, I stalled in the middle of an intersection. The alarm works sometimes and other times I have to use the key to open and the alarm goes off until I quickly stick the key in the ignition, water pours on the headrest when I am driving when it rains, I have brought it back 4 times and they cannot stop the leaking.. This is not dripping water but pouring water.


Best Features

Getting rid of it! I am currently looking into the lemon law. I am so disappointed! Please check consumer complaints before buying this, I would hate to see anyone go thru what I have.


Worst Features

Change the whole hard top and fix the problem, of course this has been a problem for years and they have yet to fix it..
