My Newest Ride — Impressionable, sleek, reliable, clean, economically sound,Limited 4X4. The perfect ride for me. Easy accessible with hands free capabilities, sirrius sound, leather/ heated seats, keyless entry, tow package, clean as a whistle! Enjoy the smooth ride in this beautiful striking silver stealthy Jeep!

Pros

Bought under "cash for clunkers" so the price was right (not so for newer ones, I'd say now).    4WD and Cruise Control have been GREAT!

Cons

Really difficult to see out of the SMALL side and back windows--but apparently this is true for ALL new cars I see....  Hard to get at the battery.  No way  to add coolant to raise temperature parameter (without removal of surrounding structures!).  The "spare" tire is TOO TINY and hard to get to (under the back cargo space).

Good Mountain Vehicle! — We'll see how this holds up (lasts).... 4WD and Cruise Control have been GREAT! Used for occasional travel back and forth to work, but excels on the interstate and in travel into the mountains particularly in the snow and ice. Has 120 volt outlet in front seat, not yet used.

Pros

Our chrome option with the special rims and burnt orange paint turned out surprisingly nice (all standard). And the stereo is amazing

Cons

Almost everything

No. Awful As A Jeep. A Typical American Car — Horrible Tow car. Never ever tow anything. Or don't even load it with stuff. 4 people, a bike rack with 2 bikes, and 2 kayaks and a full trunk, all within weight capacity makes this car ride incredibly low in the back, the front doesn't have any traction cause the stupid jeep was front wheel drive, oh and the transmission overheated on highway driving at 70mph. There is no space on the interior and its traction is awful because the standard tires are unsafe in winter conditions, not bad, but straight up unsafe. Gas mileage was generally under 20mpg. But the stereo was amazing, we tested it and you could hear it 1/2 a mile away

Family Suv — This is a smaller SUV which fits my family perfectly. I'm 6'-3" and fit in no problem with lots of head room and leg room. Great on gas and all the bells and whistles. All in all a good little family vehicle.

Small Car, Good On Gas — quick, small, 32 mpg, good for a small family, just doesn't hold a lot of cargo with the family.Need a larger car for the twins and trips between Florida and Texas. All in all a good car for the price. Low cost, low maintenance, good acceleration, braking and handling.

To boxy looking

None — Performance- great accelaration and braking! Build Quality- no need in repairs. Appearance- nice interior, but not the best exterior styling. Ownership- gas mileage is better than most Jeeps and over crossovers with 28 miles to a gallon on the highway. Fun Factor- Amazing, love to roll down the windows and turn the volume on the radio on 40(100%)

A Well Put Together Smaller Jeep With Room And Economy For The Ocassional Driver. — Suprising 2.4L passes trucks on highway with zip. Build quality is good. Like nimble looks and driving agility. Wanted a economy-minded vehicle to replace my 15 yr. old pickup. It's fun to drive with room for stuff and everything I need. My little Jeep does it all well.

What A Pleasant Surprise It Has Been After 6 Trouble Free Months Of Ownership — Was not my first choice to replace my '07 Caliber. I loved the powertrain on the Caliber and wanted something similar, so I went ahead and opted for this Jeep because of all of the equipment it had. Fun and comfortable to drive, love my sound & sun packages, and it holds a lot. Mileage is okay...wish it were a little better, but sure beats other SUVs.

Jeep Jeep — This car gets good gas mileage (mid 20's) and has decent acceleration from the VVT transmission. It has decent space inside. The only bad thing about it is that the DVD and CD player has needed to be replaced several times due to software issues.

You live in a city with winter and you go in the forest sometimes

A Very Enjoyable Vehicule — Very good overall package, improved building quality from Chrysler, average off-road performance, a good AWD system with 4WD lock botton, availiability of manual tranny, beautufull retro and conservative style, low fuel consumption (like a compact car) with low highway autonomy (small fuel tank)

Great Car - Fun To Drive Around Town By JeepGuy915
