    Beautiful Combination Of Power And Handling — this jeep has a very low ground clearance, but i am sure that is helping with the handling. i would certainly recommend skid plates if you plan on doing anything offroad. i was really frustrated to find out that Jeep's design for this year prevents increasing the tire size without a body lift.

    Pros: crisp handling and acceleration!!

    Cons: low ground clearance, trunk room

    4.0l Sport — Looks butch like all Jeeps, but really it stops there, its not as good as the older model it replaced apart from the interior, the steering doesnt feel likes it contacted to the wheels, doesnt feel as powerful as the old model, the Auto Gearbox has a mind of its own on cruise control and it leans a lot more then the old model

    Pros: Comfy, Better interior

    Cons: Woolly Steering, Power Response, Auto Gearbox, Handling

    Its A Jeep Thang... — When they decided to drop in a HEMI into the Jeep, I knew I needed one myself. Plus, I needed something to tow around my 1971 Chrysler show car.

    Pros: HEMI baby!

    Cons: 15 mpg

    Fun To Drive! — I love the security of higher driving, 4WD and the solidity of the car. Nothing felt cheap. The cargo area is amazing for whatever you need to bring along. Comfort, stylish yet sporty, and safe driving. Only in a JEEP!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4WD ~ Cargo Space ~ Luxurious yet Sporty ~ Comfortable on Long Drives ~ Like higher Driving Position ~ Controls all placed logically

    Cons: MPG could be better, but the Variable Displacement Engine & Cruise Control Help!!!

    Fun Jeep If You Like V8 Power And Best Jeep Four Wheel Drive System — If you are a jeep owner all jeeps require routine maintenance, I consider jeeps to be as reliable as any other four wheel drive SUV. SUVs are costly to maintain. If you are not a mechanic purchase a maintenance package

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

    Pros: Hemi engine and four wheel drive system.  I enjoy running the jeep through the White Mountain roads in any weather

    Cons: Likes gas

    If You Need A Comfortable, Reliable Suv That Can Tow 8,000lbs And Haul Ass...this Is The One For You — Reliable, handles well for what it is, quick with the Hemi V8, fantastic in the snow and off road, does really fun 4wd donunts in the snow covered fields! Downside is the ride is a bit choppy, it isn't huge inside like you might think, a few stupid trim pieces and such have broken, and it drinks fuel at an allarming rate!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Power, towing, off road capable, comfortable, quiet, decent looking

    Cons: Build quality problems and fuel economy are not the greatest.  We are now approaching 170,000kms with no major repairs.  Just fuel and oil and keep on going.
