I Love It So Much — Decent acceleration. Great on turns. It has a decent sound system, although i wish the deck worked better. The top is easy to take off and put back on and in the summer it is one of the best cars to drive around in. Can be hard to keep clean, and it tends to get beat up after intense offroading. Know your limits when offroading.

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

Pros: I go offroading all the time

Cons: It might be in the shop a lot if its used

The Best Motoring Experience Out There... — It's a jeep, man! 4WD in the winter or in the fun stuff, take the top off, take the doors off, hell, even fold the weildshield flat! Awesome resale value, fun to drive and nothing beats cruising in a jeep on a sunny summer day...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Um... it's a jeep.

Cons: Well, putting the top up and down sucks.. but worth it!

Amazing Base For A 4x4 Project — The 2006 jeep wrangler rubicon was amazing even stock but i put a 7.5 inch lift 37 inch tires 4-11 gears about 300hp it was the obvious choice for a extreme 4x4 and it delivered i put it through anything you could think of and it kept going the only flaw it ever had was the exterior door handles were cheaply done other than that for a extreme toy its the perfect starting point

Pros: everything its a jeep

Cons: door handles and sun visors

Golden Experience — The jeep wrangler golden eagle edition that i own is nothing like the one in the picture, to be honest its a lot nicer. First off, the wheels in the picture are not the standard wheels, the standard wheels on this jeep are gold, or tanish, they sound kinda stupid but they match the car very nicely.Also the front bumper is missing the fog lights, and the bumper tips are not the standardly equipped ones, also they mostly come with black side steps. this atuomobile is a blast to drive no matter the weather, the standard six speed manual is a blast for just driving on and off the road. the standardly bigger tires are nice to have out of the gate. the front and door windows would be nice if there were tinted at least a little bit but you can do that on your own. unfourtanly i didnt get both the hard top and soft top it is suppose to come with. the upgraded sound systems is very nice compared to the regular one.

Pros: Its a jeep wrangler? what is theren not to like about it?

Cons: Cleaning it out after it rains when the top was down.

Jeep. 'nuff Said. — The petals are real light...It's five gear with a granny. Honestly, the part about his car that's toughest for me is taking the key out (it has some wierd lock thing and you need to push in some button to remove key...I NEVER remember the button).

Pros: light petals

Cons: windy...it's really windy.(hard top would fix, but that's not *cool*.

Typical American... —

I've owned this car for two years. It does have a charm to it. In a land rover, when you get stuck while offroading,you press a button and twist a knob, and lights flicker, computers come online, and you're off. In this, you pull the big manly lever, you hear the gears grind into place, and you simply overrun anything in your path. It works, but only just. The engine isn't anything special, even if it is a 4 litre inline six . I've seen engines underengineered, but this is utterly wasteful. I'm convinced it simly spews unburnt fuel into the exhaust because apart from the horrid fuel economy and occasional tailpipe fires (and no, it's not just my car), no car weighing as little as this one does (just 1800 lbs) should get 9.7 mpg. In their quest for ruggedness, Jeep has taken a few shortucts as far as trim goes. It's rubbish. And I mean really rubbish. It's also overwhelmingly black. The dashboard is black, the carpets are black, the door trim is black, the gear lever is black, the cupholder is black, the centre console is black, the radio is black, the roll bar covers are black, the sun visors are black, and if I didn't buy seat covers, those'd be black, too. In some cases, there are gaps big enough for my whole hand to pass through. The front seats don't move back far enough, they aren't height adjustable, and you can only sit in the back if you're an amputee. All of this was to save money on the interior (but the price is still high). They've also saved money on the brakes (that's not a department I want to save money... that's a department I want to spend money). The front brakes are single piston discs, with the back being bottlecap drums. They work... once. Fade is apparant after just one quick stop. That's if you manage to avoid locking the tyres, because they've also saved money by not putting ABS in this car. The 4 wheel drive can't be used on the road because they've saved money by not putting a differential between the two axles. They also saved money on the transmission. Mine had a 3 (that's right, THREE) speed automatic with a 4th overdrive gear. Maybe that's why the fuel economy was so dismal? The hardtop on mine is also meticliously hard to remove. Also, it's not portable, so make sure to check the weather forecast before you take off, because your roof isn't coming with you. This crudeness does have its advantages. First because of lack of equipment, there's a lot less stuff that can break. And because it's built with a percision to nearest inch, it can be mended with a brick and a piece of string. Because it weighs under a ton, but still has a 200bhp engine (however underwpoered it may be), it can be thrown about corners like almost no other SUV. I've come to realize that the rollover warnings inside aren't there because it rolls easily but because you might forget you're sitting two feet off the ground on a soft rock-climbing suspension and get a bit overzealous. Cronering IS a bit tricky when your tank is less than a quarter full. You've got a big lump at the front, and almost nothing over the back wheels, which in 2 wheel drive are the ones powering the car. This means that when in its lightest state, the rear really likes to come out and play, especially if it's a bit wet on the tarmack. Its size is also very advantageous for the city. It's tiny, easy to see out of, and easy to park. In a city atmosphere, it's faster than a proper car, let alone any other SUV or truck. But overall, my experience has been dismal. I've found the image of rugedness ruined by breakdowns, and in one case, a complete failure of the rear brakes. It's unrefined, unfinished, crude, and powered by technology that at this point should cost a couple hundred quid for the lot, not the 25k+ tag Jeep has slapped on it.

Pros: Small, nippy.

Cons: It's rubbish, uneconomical, unequipped, rude, and wasteful.

The True "go Anywhere" Vehicle — The 4.0L Wrangler is probably the most solid, tough and indestructable vehicle today... Tail-slides, drifting, climbing, chillin', pimpin',..... it caters for everything!

Pros: Unlimited possibilities and access all areas

Cons: consumption

Last Of The Proper Jeeps — 2006 was the last year for the venerable 4.0 straight six torque monster engine, and the only year with a 6-speed stick. We have a '94 Cherokee in storage in Sydney that took us on 150,000 kms of off-road adventures and was fantastic, so when we needed a 'dog car' I ordered this Wrangler with the long wheelbase. Doggie has his own seat and there's still room for a long weekend's worth of luggage for an adventure. As you can see from the picture we don't baby it - the Rubicon pieces make this a proper off-road tool.

Pros: If the road is on the map, you can take it in this Jeep. Sunrider top is a nice option to taking the whole softtop off.

Cons: Aerodynamics of a brick with fuel economy to match; range is shorter than ideal.
