Best Fun To Drive Vehicle, Especially In Summer — I Love Jeeps Once you go Wrangler You never go back, It's not fast But it has the power to go through anything...with the right modifications. Nothing beats driving topless on a hot summer day with your best pals in a Jeep

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

2.5L Engine (but very reliable. Never let me down)

Loved It — Great for summer with the top off and good for winter for those snowy streets. Great off road vehicle with one of the best rated approach and departure angles.I had lots of fun with mine and would get another one in the future.

Awesome — I love everyting about it. The ride,power,apperance. Everything. there isnt really one thing i hate about it. i love the ability to go with no top or doors. everything is owner friendly. And when you own a jeep no one else understands your love affair with it beside other jeep owners.

Cons

slow, loud, rough

My First Jeep — Performance - 2.5L, slow, recently started misfiring, no ABS, feels like it always gonna roll when cornered sharply Build Quality - originally a salvage title, rebuilt front clip in my garage, even after a roll over, it still runs and drives near flawless, squeaks in places, little rust and a few dented panels Appearance -exterior: beauty of a Jeep, looks good with off road tires, nice red paint, cage has a little lean to the left, dented panels interior: plastic everywhere, gray and black, vinyl seats, spartan interior Cost of Ownership - 18 mpg, maintenance has been cheap for things like plugs, wires, distributor cap Fun Factor - the most fun car to drive around, on road or off road, Jeepers share a common bond with each other, people always smile and sometimes ask about it all in all, its a pretty good truck. fun to drive topless in the summer and be able to go anywhere. A blast to drive in the snowy winters, its nice to be able to pull away from an intersection when everything else is stuck spinning

Off roading capability, removable top, removable doors!

Cons

MPG, noise, acceleration

Not Trading My Car In, But In A Perfect World I'd Have A Zippy Commuter Car As Well. — Love my car... so much. But given a choice, I'd take the 6cyl over the 4 - barely noticeable difference in mpg, but significant difference in power. Overall, this car is a BLAST! Think of myself as a Jeep convert for life!

A Girls Best Friend — best 4wd a girl could have. performance wise, due to modificagtions its not so great onroad anymore, but stock they are quite comfortable to drive. it always needs repairs because i brake it so often, but it goes further than any other make or model i wheel with without needing repairs.

Pros

Looks of envy I get while driving it

Cons

Lose speed when going up a hill as with every other Jeep

65

My Jeep — Is by far the best vehicle I've ever owned although with the 33" tires can't drive it the same way as the minivan but it is so damn fun to drive even if I do, do racecar shifting. Driving without the roof is great as long as you tie your hair back lol. The gas mileage is great for a Jeep as with most you can only get 350 kms to the tank but with this one can get 400.
