Pros

fun, stylish, many accessories to make yours unique. four wheel drive. able to tow and decent on gas

Cons

back seat is to small, "trunk" is not a real thing, windshield seems to be magnet for rock damage

Favorite So Far — The only real negative thing I had with this vehicle is the back seat space there should be a way to slide seat back and eliminate the so called trunk space and have a little more room for back seat passengers. other than that it handles great price was good always comfy for the front seat people and theres so many combos of accessories that you can really make your different from the rest

Great Car! — Originally bought as a cheap ride to work and back. Put 33" tires on it, bought an aftermarket soft top. Been a blast to take off roading and just cruising around with the top off. Great car for young at heart.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited — This truck was great to drive, handled so good in bad weather. I drove this the entire winter and drove every time it snowed. Never once had a problem. Maintenance is the key to jeeps. I did all maintenance on it, and never had a problem. Easy to work on, and easy to maintain, and so dam fun to drive. The only bad thing about a jeep, is the gas. I would tell anyone that has unlimited expenses for gas, to buy this jeep.

Pros

You will never get stuck with lockers and a fully articulating rear axle (triangulation) plus the 4:1 transfer ration with the tera low gear mod makes this machine unstoppable.

Cons

Well you have to crawl up into it, and gas mileage is about at 14-16 MPG.

The Roadworthy Beast That Is Barely Street Legal. She Just Passed Her Md Emissions Test. — With the modifications done professionally with a top of the line kit, this vehicle drives and turns like the factory design the day it pulled of the sales floor. I have owned this vehicle since it backed off the car hauler at the dealer. Nothing stops it and with all the gadgets on it its comfortable to drive and a real attention getter.

Go Anywhere — Jeep is a way of life it isn't cheap but it is alot of fun and don't knock it till you try it. the mods will come in time so don't rush it almost anything can be changed about a jeep with the right amount of money and time so find your balance

Pros

I love how mine has a lift and tires. No other way to own a jeep.

Cons

Slow sometimes, bad gas mileage, if i were wanting gas mileage, i would of chosen a prius.

Great Mud Machine! — I like the all around lift and tires. The gas mileage is poor but what it lacks in gas mileage, it makes up for in looks. The top comes down, and the doors go off. No other way to drive it.

2004 Jeep Wrangle Rubicon — A fun car to own, low maintenance but not ideal if you have a few kids and need room to carry them and all their sports gear etc around. But should last long enough to become my son's first car!

Pros

Excellent grip in the snow and ice, very good acceleration/power, removable top and doors for fun factor. Very reliable. Heat is HOT and AC is COLD.

Cons

Fuel economy is not great in this vehicle, but probably average for a truck.

Dependable, Versatile, And Fun — It is the most versatile car I have ever owned. Fun in the summer and spring with the top down, and amazing in the snow, never have been stuck in a drift, or slipped off the road. The heat is also the hottest of any car I have been in, which is nice in the winter. Also everyone is always jealous and always wants a ride in it.

A Little Pricey But You Actually Get More Than You Pay For, Well Worth The Money — I absolutely love this vehicle!! The 4.0L I6 is the most sturdy motor i have ever had, very torquey, Has absolutely no problem braking, acceleration is somewhat slow due to the gearing in the 5spd transmission. Build quality is awesome, It squeaks a little bit but you barely hear it. I have had to get the rear differential replaced for a pinion nut that came loose and off. Gas mileage is mediocre, i personally get about 15.5mpg and the tank holds 19gal. This is a great all year round vehicle, summer you can take the doors off and top down, in the winter the heater works great and you get great handleing in the snow.

Pros

I did like the looks of this car and it was comfortable to drive

My Impression Of This Car Is I Liked How I Could Take The Top Off When Nice Out — The performance overall was pretty good. The acceleration was not great, gas mileage was not great, however I did feel safe when driving this especially in the winter months when I could put it in four wheel drive. It was very fun to drive.
