2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
Probably our 6th or 7th new vehicle and by far the best choice thus far. Nice and small / less space needed in garage - has all the standard creature comforts of a car and is great for the messy / slippery winters we occasionally have. Have never been afraid to take it anywhere. The Sahara version is targeted at the customer who wants car like comforts but a good 4WD. They hold their value very well - but who cares if it's the car you love you would either keep it or be replacing it with another of the same. Being we have the 2 door version - it's not very friendly to backseat passengers unless they are children. Not much cargo space either unless you flip the back seat down (or completely remove it which is easily done). Great in the summers as well as you can easily remove some or all of the hard top and put on a soft top - or to topless :)

Research the 3.8L motor that was in the 2007 to 2011 Wranglers. There is a ton of them out there since this motor was placed in everything from mini vans to cars to Wranglers. They are under powered, gas hungry, and very very iffy on oil consumption (Chrysler products tend to have that reputation of their motors, or at least what I always heard...IMHO)...one feels as if they need to baby the motor. You own a Jeep, who wants to have to baby a cheap in any manner? Other than that a fun and great vehicle.
Very happy with this vehicle. My first Jeep and first Chrysler product. Haven't had any problems and over 120,000 miles since November 2010. Soft top is still tight although it gets a lot of water on the floor from leakage around the doors. Took out the floor drain plugs so it drains out somewhat. Took 1000 miles and more trips and was very comfortable, also plenty of room for "stuff " and sleep. Thinking about a new car but it won't be easy to replace this Jeep.
