Pros

fun toy for wheelin

Cons

its a jeep. she breaks often

105

No Name Yet. — she has a lot of low end torque which makes the acceleration pretty slow, but its not like im trying to race over boulders or anything. the fun factor is VERY high. if you love the outdoors youll love a jeep.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Funnest toy ever - nothing better than spring time in the Jeep

Cons

You buy a Jeep with the anticipation of working on them. Needless to say, she has her good days and her bad days. Low gas mileage and cold in the winter

Awesome — This is the funnest vehicle to own in my opinion. A must have for the outdoorsy type! I love taking the Jeep camping, off roading, or even just for a joy ride. I enjoy working on mechanical work nearly as much as I enjoy the ride.

It's a Jeep

Cons

Old carburated motor, weak transmission.

This Is My Rust Bucket Repair In The Making............ — Face it guys, the newest YJ wrangler is over 13 years old now. Reliable, I think not. If your mechanically inclined these can be fun to drive and work on. I would avoid one as a daily driver.

Pros

Design

Cons

Gas consumption

45

Funny — Acceleration was good for a 4x4 car, even braking and handling. This car as every American car it needs a visit to the workshop on a monthly basis. For the appearance, it has a great design specially when convertible It consumes a lot of Gas which was a disaster. it is a funny car specially during the summer season.

Fun Toy — I bought it as a fixer upper toy and have enjoyed every minute of it. I love the way it looks now and the feeling of freedom driving it with the top down/off. I wish it had a litle more power and got better gas mileage but I wouldn't take double what I gave for it.

Pros

Looks cool

Cons

Poorly built, noisy, stiff and uncomfortabele ride.

Never Another Jeep! — Bought the car on a whim, brand new. What a mistake that was! Cool appearance did not make up for an uncomfortable ride, bumpy and noisy. The sixsylinder engine was powerful enough, but the car was lousy put together. Once when offroad, I hit a bump a little hard and the engine actually displaced itself , causing nasty internal damage.....The car never really recovered after that, even though Jeep rebuilt the engine- no questions asked.

Pros

Great for off road and wet/snowy conditions.

Cons

Not the easiest vehicle to drive. Very testy.

Every Girl Needs A Jeep! — Looks rugged and performs well off road. As my Jeep is lifted and has large tires, it doesn't do so well on the highways, but looks killer.

Pros

Top off fun in the sun!, Hardtop makes a warm 4x4 for winter.

Cons

Easy to crash, no power steering, no A/C

45

Either You Love It Or Hate It... — acc-- 2.5 5-speed not fast, but great in snow brakes-- excellent, ABS would be better handling-- top heavy, better suited for off-road build-- low repairs, the soft top can be somewhat noisy app-- "There's only 1 Jeep" CoO-- very low, 18-25 mpg depending on speed and wind ff-- not for everyone, easy to die
