Will go anywhere. Easy to customize/alter

Cons

Well, it's a Wrangler. Noisy, harsh - basically like driving a tent.

2012 Wrangler Sport — One of my favorite vehicles. There are few things like driving with the top and doors off of a quick vehicle with a manual transmission. How driving should be. Sure, it's basically a two-seater and has the ride quality of a turnip wagon. If you want comfort you should look elsewhere. This is much more comfortable than previous Wranglers, but still an acquired taste. With the new 3.6L engine, power is finally well beyond adequate and could be called excessive in certain situations. If you are looking for utility and fun: look no further.

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

Better Than I Expected — Love my Jeep. Throw back the top and your day gets better. I get 20 MPGaroun town and 22 MPG on the highway. Better than my wife mini van. 67K miles and the new car feeling hasn't worn off yet.

Pros

Good power. Go anywhere.

Cons

Twitchy handling on the freeway. Poor fuel economy. Windshield is a stone magnet.

Nice For Around Town. — Looks sharp. Fun to be part of the Jeep club. Not the best choice if you do a lot of highway driving. Really good in the winter to get you through the snow. Again, I am tired of replacing windshields. I am now on my fourth.

Fun To Drive — Overall I love driving this car especially in the summer with top and doors off. Handles great in the snow in the winter as well. Only thing for me is I would like to get the 4 door unlimited as cargo space and passenger space is limited

Pros

Very capable vehicle. Tough to find a vehicle that can go off road, carry your family and yet is a convertible.

Cons

Handling and braking is soft. But expected so it's okay

All Around Capability — Love being able to haul my family and stuff and still tow trailer. Also love the option of removing the top in summer. Fuel economy could be better but I expected this as it's a heavy body on frame four wheel drive vehicle.

Can maneuver anywhere and you can add whatever you want.

Had a 1994 Jeep Wrangler and it seemed to have more power, but it was a manual.

Love Jeeps — I've had a 1994 Jeep for 10 years, Loved it! Had a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, loved it, but had to get rid of it for gas milage at that time. Vey happy to have a Jeep again, getting stationed in HI and very excited about using it to haul paddle boards and dogs.

Pros

Jeeps are so fun to drive and own!  Jeep owners are like a family..

Cons

Jeeps are not luxury SUV's.  The bigger and higher you get, the rougher they get and they are a little harder to handle.

Fun, Fun, Fun — Love the sporty over road appeal. Love the summer fun and the added leather seats are great in the winter. Need more space with 3 plus kids to get from place to place. Windshield size is small and a bit hard to get used to.

Love It "its A Jeep Thing" — I enjoy everything about this vehical. The combination of hard top for winter & soft top for summer & the ability for trail or winter travel confidence is unmatched. Looking to buy a 2 door to jaunt around town in. If you're looking for a fun vehical with excellent resale value Jeep Wrangler is it.

Great! Fun To Drive. — I really enjoy this car. My husband and I want to have kids and we are looking for a 'family' car. It's such a fun car to drive, it's good on gas and handles very, very well in any condition.
