Family Car:
Fuel Economy:
Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

Can't Beat The Price To Value. — Great extra vehicle. 4x4 is the same as Wrangler, however the Wrangler would be 5 times more expensive used. Great Home Depot mobile. You can buy almost anything to dress it up. I put on alloys and larger tires and a roof rack . Looks pretty cool !

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

Pros: Great cheap utility vehicle with 4 wheeel drive as a bonus.

Cons: fuel milage is not good.
