Was Everything I Thought It Would Be And More. — I loved how easily I could customize it to my liking. I enjoyed driving it every day and being able to call it mine. It became really convenient that the heater gets very hot and AC gets very cold. The capability to push a button on my key to start made it even more convenient on the cold, winter days to warm up my jeep before I got in it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Can be a great family ride to take out.

Cons: Gas mileage isn't great.

The Best Wrangler Ever Built, Period. — Jeep did a great job with the redesign in 2007. You can look at the resale values and quickly deduce that. It's the ONLY vehicle besides maybe the Ram trucks that are made by Chrysler and actually hold their value at all. But you don't see any of the "Chrysler" in the Jeep Wrangler. It truly feels like it's in a league all it's own. I've put 60,000 miles on my 2008 since I bought it used and loved every minute of it. Riding with the top and doors off is just a wonderful experience and it actually rides better like that then with the top on!!

Pros: EVERYTHING!  Do wish the motor had a little more power. But Wranglers aren't known for big torque anyway.

Cons: Wind noise is better with the new body style, but is still very present with a soft top. Gas mileage averages 17-19mpg combined city/highway.

Awesome Jeep Lifestyle — Great fun for whole family. Enclosed, convertible, doors on, doors off it's your choice. Great cargo area and rear seats fold down for plenty of room if needed. Stereo with sub sounds awesome. It's a jeep thing and you understand once you have one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome style and fun versatility

Cons: Fuel mileage

I Actually Loved This Jeep. No Issues Or Anything Wrong With The Jeep, Just Want New. — I liked the color. I liked how great the gas mileage was. I liked having the top and back windows off. I liked how it drove. I loved the heater in the winter. I liked washing it because it was actually quite easy and not time consuming. I didn't like having the top on.. road noise on the highway.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the look of the Jeep. My next vehicle will definitely be one.

Cons: Only time in a shop was to get oil changed. Gas mileage is usually 18,17.. which I think is great. No repair costs. Only noise is going 70 on the highway from the road.

Would Always Buy Again — I certainly love my wrangler. It would be ideal if it had better fuel economy. Overall the styling is very attractive, both inside and out. The vast availability of aftermarket parts and accessories lets you make it special in your own way.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Capability is always there
Unlimited aftermarket possibilities

Cons: Fuel economy
Under-powered slightly
Not the most comfortable seats

but it's a Wrangler, that's all part of the fun

Pretty Jeep — Love this Jeep, I bought it brand new and I have had a few issues but Jeep stood behind their product and fixed with no cost to me. I have had to do the most minimal of maintenance, brakes, wipers and regular oil changes are free to me through my dealer. I still love it after driving it for 5 years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's sssooooo pretty :)

Cons: Terrible gas mileage

Loved It — Death wobble. And some others with 2008 Unlimited's said the same. I have yet to Finan anyone who has had an odder on 2011-13 models. Sold the '08. Thinking about getting a 2014. Will begin looking the end of summer.

Pros: Good looking machine

Cons: Death Wobble, even with dampeners when out of alignment, which is about every 3 months
