    A Good First Convertable Car — This Jeep is a nice ride however it needs alot of work. the inside is in pretty good shape and the outside condition is about average. needs a new fuel system and the 4wd doesnt work. other than that every thing is good shape and has been well mantained.

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

    Pros: Nice in the Summer!

    Cons: Needs work

    An Offroader — Needed repairs a few times, mainly the rear wheel drive. Gas milage wasnt great. It was fun to drive at the time. First gear seemed to be very short and shifting gears was a bit of an annoyance, freeway driving really bugged me

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

    Pros: 4x4, strong construction, ran well

    Cons: stiff leaf springs, no door locks, gearing and stearing a bit stiff

    A Blast!! — The most fun you can have on 4 wheels and register it for the street. No top AND removable doors means more open air than anything on the road other than motorcycles. Stone reliable, large aftermarket, the ORIGINAL. Too bad the Germans killed it. I think they're mad because the original jeep helped win WWII.

    Pros: FUN!

    Cons: Gas mileage

    88 Yj; Great For Offroad! — I bought my jeep YJ in october of 2007. Excellent quality, for an 88 I've made few repairs. Handles alright, quick on the wheel. Ownership costs are quite high, as I get about 12 mpg. However, this is an amazing vehicle to drive! If you're looking for something great for offroading, a Jeep Wrangler is perfect, vs. a cherokee. Wranglers can get aorund tight spaces much better.

    Pros: Compact, Looks good

    Cons: Hard on gas, Bad on ice

    There's Only One Jeep! — One of the best vehicles we ever owned. It was great to get out during a snow storm and drive and drive. It was also fun to put the back window up,roll the windows down, and cruise in the summer time. If you can only get one vehicle for fun, make it a Jeep !

    Pros: cool,dependable in snow, makes you feel good when you drive it!

    Cons: not good on ice
