Great SUV in the snow and parking in the city is super easy. The turning radius is awesome!

Jeep Wranglers Rule! — Love this car. I would highly recommend this vehicle that I purchased at MUM AUTO BROKERS in Gloucester MA. Michael Helped me pick out the right Jeep that reflects my disposition. One of the most reliable vehicles I have ever owned.

Bulletproof engine

Handles like CRAP

Fun For A Purpose — Not a commuter car. I was driving 40 miles to work, and 40 home. It wasn't practical for anything other than FUN. The 4.0 was a bulletproof engine, the tranny was solid, and it was a blast on sunny days. The tops are miserable to put on, it handles like crap, and the quality of dash panels is subpar.

Trunk space.

Classic, Must Have Vehicle. — Very versatile. Can drive it with the top down like a convertible or top up on a rainy day. Has enough power to tow a boat or jet ski. Drives great for getting around town. Great color combination with signature Sahara interior.

Always receiving complements, nothing better than driving with the top down on a warm day, barely ever in the shop

Cons

Not the best for long highway drives

Great Impression, Will Definitely Buy Another — Very fun to drive, you'll find yourself making any excuse to take it out around town, through mud, or anywhere. Jeeps are definitely built tough and give you that "go anywhere" feeling. Great car overall, will be looking for another in the near future.

Pros

Great on and off road vehicle.  Perfect for getting lots of sun and wind on the road or camping trip.

Cons

Long trips can be tiring due to wind/tire noise.  Rougher ride than most.

Awesome — Great on and off road vehicle. Perfect for getting lots of sun and wind on the road or camping trip. Lots of extras available to customize your Jeep experience. Cargo rack, trail shade, soft top boot and much much more

Great Car For Small Travel — Once you drive a Wrangler, there is nothing else like it. The power and ability of this vehicle exceeds expectations. Once you drive a different car, you make two remarks. 1. This is not fun. 2. I want my Wrangler back!

Pros

Its really cheep, fun to drive and is a beast in every good way.

Cons

It burns through gas, has no luxuries and needs a custom sound system.

Old Jeep To Be Missed. — Has no acceleration but sounded pretty great, had great breaks, could turn on a dime and drove like a tank, which saved my life a couple times. Had someone try to scam me by pulling in front of my and slamming on the brakes without brake lights and this beast got half way through the back end of their car and came out with only the bumper being damaged. It also managed to power through blizzards like they were nothing. Sound system sucks though and I don't recommend lifting them unless you A, want to have problems in the future and B, want it to look stupid when you have to switch out the off road tires for the snow tires... I miss this car though and wish I had kept it so I'd recommend one as a second car.

I Love This Car — Performance is good. It is a 6cyl so it has plenty of power. I have it customized so it does need to have repairs because the stock features cant handle the big tires. I love the look of this car with no roof and doors in the summer time. The gas milage is horrible and this car is so much fun to drive
