Either You Love It Or Hate It... — acc-- 2.5 5-speed not fast, but great in snow brakes-- excellent, ABS would be better handling-- top heavy, better suited for off-road build-- low repairs, the soft top can be somewhat noisy app-- "There's only 1 Jeep" CoO-- very low, 18-25 mpg depending on speed and wind ff-- not for everyone, easy to die

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Top off fun in the sun!, Hardtop makes a warm 4x4 for winter.

Cons: Easy to crash, no power steering, no A/C

Jeep Yj — most unreliable vehicule i'v ever owned. but man it can go through mud! i'v got 4 1/2" lift 33" trail cutters i'v done everything from motor job to axle work, but has to be one of the best vehicule to work on. Best thing is i don't need a jack to work underneath.

Pros: no doors no top no problem

Cons: slow, does not handle well, did i mention slow

Every Girl Needs A Jeep! — Looks rugged and performs well off road. As my Jeep is lifted and has large tires, it doesn't do so well on the highways, but looks killer.

Pros: Great for off road and wet/snowy conditions.

Cons: Not the easiest vehicle to drive. Very testy.

This Is My Rust Bucket Repair In The Making............ — Face it guys, the newest YJ wrangler is over 13 years old now. Reliable, I think not. If your mechanically inclined these can be fun to drive and work on. I would avoid one as a daily driver.

Pros: It's a Jeep

Cons: Old carburated motor, weak transmission.

Never Another Jeep! — Bought the car on a whim, brand new. What a mistake that was! Cool appearance did not make up for an uncomfortable ride, bumpy and noisy. The sixsylinder engine was powerful enough, but the car was lousy put together. Once when offroad, I hit a bump a little hard and the engine actually displaced itself , causing nasty internal damage.....The car never really recovered after that, even though Jeep rebuilt the engine- no questions asked.

Pros: Looks cool

Cons: Poorly built, noisy, stiff and uncomfortabele ride.
