First JEEP! Sahara Unlimtd 4x4 Automatic
By Big Al Choo on


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


Wanted one since high school but avid Consumer Reports guy and always drove Hondas and Toyotas. Not so good Consumer Reports ratings for Wrangler but hey, had to have one to see annd experience for myself! So far, so good. Top rating: FUN TO DRIVE! Folks, there's no other 4 door convertible out there and with 2 kids, this is the one that has room to haul the youngsters and the weekend gear! Topless driving is a breeze with the sunrider soft top. Undo the rain flaps and some clamps, and in 5 minutes you have a massive sunroof open to the passenger row. The complete removal takes 2 people and 15 minutes though. Outdoor free air driving: PRICELESS.

Best Features

Driving topless! The ride is surprisingly smooth for a true 4x4. Creature comforts of sirius radio, power doors and windows, remote lock, side rails all standard. Drove a Honda CRV EX before, ride is comparable. Love the speakers built into the top roof bar. Subwoofer also standard.

Worst Features

Mileage only avg. 16 mpg with this automatic. Probably 19 highway but that's it. 200 horses still slow for its weight but not in it for speed. In for enjoying the topless driving! Suggest doors and trunk that have hydraulics so they stay open when you need them to. Better mileage would be a plus!
