Hard To Beat In Its Element — For off road performance a Jeep is hard to beat. When you leave the pavement behind the Wrangler shines like few other vehicles can. If you want to go off-roading the Wrangler is an excellent choice. When going from off road back to the streets and highways the Wrangler goes from King of the Mountain to ugly duckling. If you plan on using it as a commuter then you are choosing style over substance. Be prepared for a loud barely comfortable ride.

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

Like A Little Mac Truck! — I liked that every morning I went to get in it, it starts right up like a well oiled machine ! Even when it was freezing cold outside and everything else didn't want to start. The seats are very comfortable for a jeep. I was really surprised. Maneuvers very well and can get it into all those micro mini parking spots they have now. Got a lot of looks and a lot of compliments!

Pros

Love to ride with top down and it's great on gas

Cons

No room in vehicle and it's extremely unsafe for my family and myself,it wobbles like hell at 55-60 mile an hour!

Great Looking But Not Safe For Driving On Road — Be careful what you buy from a dealer /salesperson that knows nothing about Jeeps or offers to tell you anything about maintenance/servicing one. Also most of what you need for a jeep to take care of it or parts a lot of times have to be ordered where I'm from!

Not What You'd Expect — Jeep should be indestructible but the engine failed after 50.000 miles and has not been able to recover. Cheapest car to insure so it's a keeper. Drives well, looks good and other than a corvette who else is going to way to another except Other Jeeps

Pros

Last, Best LJ.  6 Speed, top off - doors off joy.  Go anywhere, do anything unstoppable TJ.

Cons

Mileage, kids climbing into back seat, cargo with 3+ passengers.

For The Pure Of Soul — If you feel deprived by a lack of power anything, need to have seat warmers, or just feel the concierge at the hotel could have done more - move along. But if your soul pines for mountaintops or distant shores, don't waste another moment of your life before you buy your Jeep.

Bsst American Suv — The Jeep Wrangler is the Best SUV that has ever been built. It has capability up the waszoo. It has done everything that I have ever asked it to do and has so many after market parts available to make it truly a one of a kind its not even funny. I love this thing and will never sell it. Its A Jeep Thing, You Wouldn't Under Stand!

Pros

turns heads, a blast to drive, a beast off road, sounds mean, goes great in the rain, snow and ice, lots of fun in the summer time.

Cons

fuel economy is alittle steep, no amenities like power locks or windows, interior noise is very strong.

This Is A Head Turner, Very Impressive Ride. It Was My Dream Car. — this is a great vehicle for recreation and impressing the opposite sex, off road abilities are exceptional and its fantastic in the snow. other vehicles make way and the as a body armor and build make it very durable and resilient to little boo boos like backing in to your husband's truck or a light pole. without the back seats I can haul two great danes in the back comfortably. I love it, feel pretty badass driving it and I love the conversation piece that it is. It do not recommend it as a daily driver if your commute is lengthy or if your job requires delivery services. it is hard on fuel, especially if you have lead foot but she's got enough torque that you cant even tell she's runnin factory gears with the 35 in tires.

Pros

Its a Jeep! great in the summer with the top down. Great in the winter when it snows 3 feet and you want to go anywhere. great when there is no road. Fun to drive everywhere

Cons

Its always thirsty and if you arent used to a jeep, it can be a little loud driving down the highway with a soft top

I Love This Thing And Wouldnt Trade It For Anything — I love this car and would recommend a jeep to both new and experienced car buyers. All around fun car to own and bounce around in. My first car was a jeep and there will always be one in my driveway. Its a great feeling knowing you can never get stuck and that trip to the beach will be that much better when the cute girl wants to ride with you in the passenger seat when the doors are off.

Jeep Aka Just Empty Every Pocket — Well lets see the jeep wrangler is alot of fun I would never drive another vehicle however if your looking for a vehicle good on gas you should stop looking now this little beast drinks the fuel up like water. U joints are fairly common to have to replace on a fairly regular basis if you off road. All in all its a great vehicle lacking on storage room but anyone that owns a tj knows you don't buy one for trunk space. Great for going camping offroading fantastic in the winter...any-time of year really. You can lift them take off parts add new ones make it your own and its one of the few vehicles left on the road not made of fibre glass. If your a Kevin Harvick wanna be this is not the ride for you this baby is lucky to push past 120 with out doing a death shake. All in all you either love them or hate them but you'll never turn back once you've owned one

Great — We loved this vehicle. Good for the back and forth to work. Parking in the city was nice because we could squeeze into tighter places. I go camping a lot in remote parts. So it's nice to be able to take the Jeep a little further in.
