Love It But Would Love To Get A New One. — I bought this vehicle used since it was an easy way to get into an open air car that has plenty of rollover protection yet had very good "presence". It's been great and I would love to get a new one someday.

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

Pros: Love the rugged simplicity

Cons: Not much power and poor fuel economy but that's not why I bought it.

Great Start For An Offroader, Noisy On The Highways But Its A Jeep. Deal With It. — This Jeep is a very fun car to drive. I love the 5 speed manual tranny and it shifts well for a Jeep. Its engine is very reliable and Ive heard its one of the longest lasting engines( Its the last model of engine produced by AMC) It does great on the street for a Jeep, well offroad too. Its limited slip diff. in the front axle helps alot even though its not truly locked. Its gas mileage is not great...I blame the rack for part of that. Overall I love it!

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

Pros: Offroad and summer topless fun!

Cons: The check engine can get annoying popping on and off but thats probably because of the 148,000 miles!
