Ups and downs of a wrangler tj.

Really a fun car. Bullet proof engine. Would buy another one. Would purchase one with a hardtop, as soft tops are easier to come by after the initial purchase. Manual transmission needed to be rebuild after 150, 000 miles, partially due to user ware and tare, but these transmissions weren't built as well as the engines.

Love our 2003 Jeep wrangler!

Love our Jeep wrangler because of the comfort & performance. We occasionally take it off-road, which is always fun, but mainly we drive on road. My husband can easily do maintenance work & it is perfect to drive on the beaches with the top down. It has a great sound system & has always been reliable.

Jeep is great for Colorado driving.

This Jeep has been consistently reliable. Only ever had very minor repairs. It is great for 4-wheeling and getting around in the Colorado terrain and snow. It is great with the hard top, soft top, or no top! The most expensive things we've had to put towards it in almost 15 years are gas and tires.
