Do not turn too fast it might tip over

I love my Jeep because I can sit high off the ground to see oncoming traffic better than I otherwise would be able to. I love the style. Only thing I do not like is that this style Jeep has had radiator issues since we bought it. Radiator has been replaced 4 times and leaking from radiator continues

My Jeep is so fun to drive I highly recommend getting one.

I love my Jeep wrangler. Its so fun to go mud riding and to just drive around with the top off. Its drives great. The four wheel drive pulls up large hills and its a standard so I really like shifting the gears. I would recommend anyone to get on either for a toys to play in or an everyday vehicle.

I think everyone should know about their own car and what to do for their own car

Well first it is stick but that was the first kind of how learned how to drive a car was a stick shift car and it was a brand new Jeep Cherokee and it was an amazing car! The good thing I like about my Wrangler is the color and how good it has been to me
