Jeep Wrangler 4x4, soft top, manual transmission.

I absolutely love my car. I am a big Jeep fan and driving this model for the past 7 years. You can go off-roading and remove the doors as well as the top and enjoy the outdoors. It is the perfect car for riding in the desert or through the mountains and I absolutely recommend it.

Reliability in bad weather.

This Jeep is very clean and reliable. The four wheel drive works perfectly and I can do 80 mph on the freeway a any given time when necessary. With routine care and maintenance this should be the last every day driver that I'll ever need living in this area.

It is very easy to handle and is great in all four seasons.

I absolutely love my Jeep. It has typical problems of having an older vehicle, like water pump needing to be replaced and some rust issues. Other than mild problems, it is a very reliable vehicle. I would not buy any other vehicle but a Jeep in the future.
