A Jeep That's Actually Worth Buying — Having driven the Compass, Patriot and Liberty I honestly didn't see the appeal in any of these Jeeps since they're horrid vehicles. The Compass and Patriot particularly since they're based off a bad car, the Caliber. Well I finally driven the Wrangler which is successor of the iconic Jeep from the AMC days. This is a much better Jeep and the other 3 and with the 4-door version...why do you need those 3 again? If this Jeep has a downside its really down to the interior. You have a pretty standard Chrysler interior which means its full of cheap disgusting looking plastic, hard surfaces and is somewhat depressing. The good news is the roof of the Wrangler can come off. Removing the interior might actually improve the look of the Wrangler. The driving part is really the good part of the Wrangler. The steering is not vague like the Compass, Liberty or Patriot so it actually has some feel. I also get the sense it can corner a lot better than those terrible 3. Due to the off-roading nature of this Jeep the ride comfort on the road is not very good. Still, among the vehicles you can buy from Jeep...you better choose this one over the rubbish Compass, Patriot and Liberty.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Awesome Jeep — This vehicle is a great jeep. When you drive it down the street , you are going to get many complements about how nice it looks, specially if you have the top down and the doors off.. In addition, how easy is to drive, it handles very well, Furthermore, 0 repair cost , so far. the tires are relatively new. 4x4 is great in the snow.

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

If You Don't Like It Then You Just Don't Understand It...it's A Jeep! — It's a jeep...need I say more. It has the classic styling and is an absolute beast off road. However, it's more than capable of being tamed for everyday driving and performs exceptionally well in the city. It's sharp turning radius makes it easy to park and maneuver in tight spaces. It does sit up high but not so high that it won't meet most height restrictions for drive thrus and parking garages. It lacks in torque but has plenty of horsepower. Best of all, Jeep finally gave the Wrangler a stereo loud enough to be heard over the loud noise of the cloth top fluttering in the wind. I love it!

My Best Vehicle — I have owned the Wrangler for a year now and love it. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I currently lease it because I wasn't sure how I would like it. When i'm done with this one I am going to for sure buy another one. The only thing that i am sort of not ok with is the performance. It isnt fast but hey its a Jeep.. Thats not what they are mean't for. It is the nicer model with the tow hooks, bigger wheels, 3 piece hard top, tow package, power package and it fits my needs perfectly.

Pros

It is as tough as they come!  It does not matter that I do not have the bells and whistles, I love driving it, and so does my teenage daughter-that is the amazing thing!

Cons

I like to drive so much, I volunteer to drive, so I have plenty of miles on it.

Can't Go Wrong With This Jeep Wrangler! — Drives smooth -I forget it has a soft top on it, it is so quiet. It is very stable, and easy to maneuver. The great looks of it are equal to the performance. Not a gas guzzler! No big deal not having power locks and windows, it is a Jeep!

Tons Of Fun! — I will never own anything but a jeep. This is my 2nd wrangler. Had to sell my first one due to the birth of my daughter. I love the look and feel of this 09 4dr Wrangler. It is great for family trips with room and space. Wish the fuel economy was a bit better.

Great Around Town Driver For A Four Wheel Drive For Non Soccer Mom Group — Great around town vehicle with summer fun factor and off road capability. In town Mileage 19 MPG. Salsa Red with canvas top. Gotta like challenge of taking the top up and down. Vehicle is easy to clean after trips to beach, snow storms and horse barns. Good vehicle for towing small utility trailer

Pros

Excellent car for getting around city and country. compact, turns great, easy on and off canvas. portions of canvas can come off to only get a mild breeze or partial sun. Has amazing cargo space. There hasn't been anything I couldn't fit in the jeep with the back laid down. Has amazingly strong and effective heating system for jeep (handy in the winter)

Cons

Is not 100% air tight, about 17 miles to the gallon city driving

Excellent & Fun Car! — There hasn't been really anything I've disliked. I'd be keeping this car if we didn't need to sell for financial reasons. Perfect car for the adventurous at heart! Once you have a jeep it's hard to get anything else, they are just wonderful cars all around!

The Best Open Air Experience In An Suv — THe Best Open Air experience you can get.. Remove the front panels for an over sized sunroof or take the full top off.. Complete the experience by removing the doors. This Vehicle goes anywhere be it on or off road. Perfect for hauling your favor sporting gear be it surfboards, kayaks, or golf clubs.
