My Jeep gets me everywhere I need to go.

It can be a little noisy on the highway.

Love My Jeep! — Overall I love my 2003 Jeep Wrangler and would not trade it for anything. It handles exceptionally well in the snow. I would probably get an automatic next time but the standard is fun to drive. I love warm days when I can take the top off.

Fun! — Love it in the summer with the top down and the doors off, nothing better... Great in the winter when the snow is heavy & deep. Super fun car to drive, buying a 4 door Unlimited soon... Not sure what else I can write, but this site wants me to say more :-)

It puts 435 hp on the ground.

Cons

It's a Jeep.  You love them or you are ambivalent. I wish I could find a Dana 60 rear axle in Hawaii.

I Kinda Like It. :-) — I didn't like the blown up 4 cylinder engine that it came with but that's fixed. It's actually one of my all-time favorite vehicles. It's a daily driver. I'm retired now, so I can't buy a newer one, but I'd like to.

Gas hog (10 mpg)

I'd Love It Except For The Gas Mileage — A Jeep is what it is. You either love it or hate it. I love it except for the 10 mpg and lack of acceleration power. Low end power is more than enough. I'd buy a new one except that it's Jaguar's turn.

Pros

We enjoyed the flexibility of the Wrangler, 4x4, and being able to go topless was quite enjoyable.

Cons

The fuel economy was a little disappointing, and getting people in and out of the back seat was sometimes a challenge.

Love The Wranglers! — What a neat little suv, it can go anywhere your heart desires. The TJ models of the Jeeps handle really well in all weather conditions. I will definitely own another one in the near future. The fuel economy averaged close to 15-17 miles per gallon.

Pros

Go anywhere, totally reliable, rugged, easy to get parts to upgrade, striking presence,  this is NOT a toy.

Cons

Tall to get into, front seat adequate but space is at a premium, back seat difficult to get into and out of. Cargo area OK with seat removed or folded, limited with seat up

My Ultimate Utility Vehicle — Built to go anywhere but I don't have time (or youth) to use it as one should. Convertible roof has blind spots you need to get used to (or take off). All systems are at 100%, no leaks, no corrosion, comes with a complete assortment of top shelf gear, CB, GPS, straps, clevis pins, tree saver, winch pulley Warn XD9000i skid plates, body armor etc.... there are some lite brush scratches on the sides... more fun to drive than I can explain. Reliability... only ever had to replace the battery once (lack of use). Turn key off roader!

Great !! — I have 200,000 miles on this jeep. i drive it everyday. The only things we have replaced are radiator and water pump and while these were out replaced seals. LOVE this jeep. Dependable and fun to drive. Standard...haven't even had to replace brakes which are checked at every other oil change when tire rotated.

This Car Is A Blast — I've always wanted a wrangler. Now that I have one, I've realized that everything I've dreamed about owning a wrangler, was real. This car is so fun, I regret not owning one sooner. Unless you're looking to be pampered, you should buy one of these.
