Thought I wanted an FJ, but went for 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara
By gmaster on


2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Wanted FJ, so I thought I did.
Drove FJ, 2011 Wrangler and the 2012 Wrangler.
FJ felt cheap. New 2011 Wrangler engine sluggish and auto trans grinded on shifts.
2012 Wrangler WoWed me!

Best Features

The drive. Even on the streets, it is just fun and neat to drive.

Worst Features

Gas mileage. Need to do something like the Ford Ecoboost engine on this or a turbo diesel. My understanding is that you can get a turbo diesel Wrangler in Europe.

An FJ is something Barbie would drive her friends around in. You made the right choice.
