Jeep wrangler review: 03 Sahara, 4 cylinder, tan, 3� lift, 31s and a 2-door.

I bought a jeep wrangler Sahara a few years back because I have always wanted one. Overall, I love my jeep. If you are wanting a vehicle to enjoy the summer breeze with the soft top off, this is the one. They are a reliable vehicle. I drive a 16-year-old jeep and I have never had to worry about if it was going to start morning or not. There is not a lot of comfort when you are driving one especially if it is lifted or has bigger tires than stock. The seats are comfortable but lifted jeeps tend to jolt around on the road, making it a rough ride at times. I enjoy the drive, but some may find it too rough. They are not a vehicle to get if you are a speed demon that takes turns sharply. Jeep�s have a short wheelbase making them more susceptible to rolling over. Sharp turns must be taken at a much lower speed. The turning radius on a jeep is very convenient. It does not take much to get it to move around with just a slight movement of the steering wheel. Soft top removal is not too difficult. If it is a new soft top, it tends to be harder to remove and put back on. But overall, it is an easy process. They do great with gripping the road when there are bad weather conditions. I have not lost much traction on the roads in the snow compared to other vehicles. Rain or snow a jeep will drive just fine. They are an easy car to work on compared to other vehicles as well. The parts tend to be cheaper and they are more of a simple vehicle.

My Jeep and the things I like and dislike about it.

My Jeep is a very good car to drive. I can go off-road with if I want to and go places where a regular car cannot go. I has never broke down in the 15 years I have owned it. The only problem I have it the cruise control does not work all the time, and I never know when it is not going work or not, but I driving is short so most of the time I do not use it. I like the seven speaker system in my Jeep , and the seventh speaker in the subwoofer that sets between the two front seats. The ride is a little rough because that is the nature of the Jeep . All controls are in easy reach. I do wish the radio had Bluetooth on it, but I make do with a after market device I have on the dashboard.

You need to buy a Jeep, you will not regret it.

The Jeep is amazing. It is so fun in the summer, spring, and fall to ride around without the top and doors. It is not a smooth ride but I enjoy it anyways. Current problems I have had are that the steering wheel is not stabilized, its wobbly, and the heat and air are not that great. But it's an older car and these things are easy to fix. I get 13-16 mpg. Its comfortable and reliable. I love that you can change any feature you want on it. You can lift it, change the doors and tops. You can completely customize it.
