    Jeep Wrangler Sport — My Jeep is, Big time Fun Factor Great Gas Mileage, Low Maintenance Big Wheels, Topless Has some squeaks and rattles, but that is part of having fun Acceleration and Braking are awesome. Handling is difficult at times but very responsive. I would like to a newer 4dr Rubicon

    Pros: Do I really need to explain, if you have riden in one you will know

    Cons: The +'s out way the -'s

    My Jeep — Is by far the best vehicle I've ever owned although with the 33" tires can't drive it the same way as the minivan but it is so damn fun to drive even if I do, do racecar shifting. Driving without the roof is great as long as you tie your hair back lol. The gas mileage is great for a Jeep as with most you can only get 350 kms to the tank but with this one can get 400.

    Pros: Looks of envy I get while driving it

    Cons: Lose speed when going up a hill as with every other Jeep

    I Love My Turquoise Jeep Wrangler — A Jeep Wrangler is above all, versatile in it's functionality and capability, and I highly prize versatility. It is a fun vehicle to drive, top up or down, and has plenty of power from the inline 4-liter six. It's great in terrible weather because it inspires confidence that you can get there, no matter what. It's great in perfect weather because with the top down and the doors off, it's the ultimate fun in the sun machine. It is an American icon that speaks military history just by it's stylized design, but it's also a big toy. There are a few issues; like the top not being quick or easy to take down or reassemble, the rain leaking into the passenger footwell in heavy rain, but the worst part of owning a Wrangler is the poor fuel economy - less than 20 mpg.

    Pros: Versatile, fun American icon.

    Cons: poor fuel economy, convertible top is difficult to work with

    97 Jeep Wranger — I absolutely love this beast. If it were stock, I wouldn't enjoy it so much. If you own a wrangler, you need to put some off road tires on it and a lift. Its awesome in the North East cause it goes through snow like its not even there and in the summer you can take the doors off! Its perfect!

    Pros: Offroad Capabilities, Convertable abilities

    Cons: Loud Engine noise, Rough ride at slow speeds

    My Favorite Vehicle I've Ever Owned. — I love this vehicle, it goes anywhere and gets lots of attention. It has 120,000 miles on the clock but still has over half of its life left. It never lets me down. The only down side is the gas mileage. I only average 19 MPG. Hands down my favorite vehicle I've owned so far.

    Pros: Goes anywhere

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Jeep Wrangler 4.0l Sport — Accellaration and top speed isn't the greatest. I wish it was a manual. I-6 eats gas like crazy, but you gotta love that strait-six sound! But, easy to take care of, easy to modify, easy to fix stuff. Mine's all rusted out but that's all that's wrong with it! Could have more cargo room but my bike fits in there without the back seat, lol.

    Pros: Off roading!

    Cons: Not the fastest as is.

    Jeep Wrangler (tj) — This vehicle will take you anywhere... be sure to have deep pockets, or at least be able to fill them often. The quality of it is low, as far as plasticy interior, but it is a very simple vehicle. This vehicle is very fun to drive no matter where you are driving it, and unless you are looking for a Cadillac i would recommend this to anyone.

    Pros: Go anywhere, and simple/classic design

    Cons: Daimler Chrysler

    "pedro" — I like my car because it's my first car and it's somewhat easy to fix. It has 260 thousand miles on it and although it's not in mint condition it still gets me where I'm going usually without any problems but isn't the most feul efficient either... I still love Pedro..

    The Von Helmet Synopsis — I love it. Everybody should own one at least once just to know how fun they are even if the ride is somewhat rough,mileage is questionable and lackluster performance. All the shortcomings can be improved upon and that just adds to the fun of convertible,4x4 go anywhere good times. :) Oh....and the chicks dig it too. ;)
