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

2003 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

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.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

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.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

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.

2003 Jeep Wrangler, almost 20 years old and going strong.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

The car is very reliable but it is a very small car so there’s not a lot of storage. It has had issues with a frequent oil leak but that could be in part of my homemade fixtures. Other then that this car has been put through the wringer with both off-road trail use to countless commuting highway miles and has lasted over a decade and well over 100, 000 miles with no signs of slowing down. I plan on having this car the rest of my life if not as a daily driver then most certainly as a weekend driver.

- Connor G

I love how easy it is to drive and how straightforward everything is.

2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport

The performance is great. The engine needs to be kept up with to maintain quality. It is small which makes it easy to drive but does not allow for a lot of room. A perfect car for someone who mostly drives alone. However, since it is a box shape, it does not have a very good mpg. It is perfect for its purpose of off-roading and it is fine for street driving.

The Wrangler is Very Customizable

2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport

It is really a great car! Jeeps have the reputation of needing to be fixed a lot, but I haven't had that problem. I love how customizable the car is. There is nothing on your Jeep that isn't customizable! Getting a Wrangler you also join this little family of other Jeep owners that support each other, it's a great environment.

Risk vs reward: The ups and downs of Jeep ownership

2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport

There's always at least one thing wrong with my vehicle at all times. That being said, a Jeep Wrangler is a very easy vehicle to work on even for those with no to little mechanical experience. Gas mileage is less than adequate. However, that's the price you pay for the freedom of having the top and doors off of your vehicle!

Ups and downs of a wrangler tj.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

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.

- Nicholas V

My Jeep is the best vehicle I have ever owned!

2003 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

No problems whatsoever. Very reliable. 100,000. Miles. Sporty, easy to handle, I wish the gas mileage were better. I also wish it had a bit more storage room but otherwise it is the best vehicle I have owned. I would buy another if the prices were lower but they do hold their value better than other vehicles.

Love our 2003 Jeep wrangler!

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.

- Peggy G

Jeep is great for Colorado driving.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

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.

- Catherine M

Not the most comfortable car, but the most fun and enjoyable car, especially for areas near the mountains or beach!

2003 Jeep Wrangler

I've had my jeep for 9 years now, and have only had some minor problems. More problems in the last year or so but prior to then it'd been a reliable, fun ride! People only complain about the size of the Jeep and not easily able to get in and out of but, but I've enjoyed it nonetheless.

- Sydney S

Great overall vehicle and wonderful durability.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

It's a great vehicle for the off-road enthusiast with countless performance parts a protective plates for you vehicle with endless possibilities only issue is the occasional (death wobble) has not killed anyone on record though just causes bad vibrations at higher speeds.

Jeep wrangler 2003 in review.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

Bad seats, good area for storage of gear. Pretty reliable and the four wheel option is good. Loose steering. Good backseat option up or down. Runs cool generally which is good. Can be a bit noisy on freeway driving. Gas mileage fair in both surface streets and highways.

- A. P

Turns on a dime easy to park and maneuver

2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Jeep getting terrible gas mileage but I love driving it. Have had problems with the radiator, replaced it and the transmission. I have had problems but it's a jeep it's meant to be ridden hard so it's inevitable that it needs repairs. I wouldn't trade it for anything

- Marissa M

Who doesn't love a jacked up Jeep?! Mine is a beauty and I love it!

2003 Jeep Wrangler

I love the versatility, the color, the fun that I can have in it. It has always been reliable. It could be a little better on gas mileage, but I have a short daily drive, so I don't care too much about that.

This Jeep's Air Conditioner will Freeze You to Death!

2003 Jeep Wrangler

It is fine for a single person, but uncomfortable for a family to ride in. It is a little front heavy. I do like the color and the accessories it has. It is a dependable car.

- Amy C

It's very reliable, safe, and fun to drive. It's been an amazing first car for me.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

It's an amazing car. Handles super well in the snow, and has little to no maintenance required. I've only had to replace shocks from age, and hail damage. She's beautiful!

- Faith M

It is very important to me that people treat it as if it were their own car.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

My car has needed minimal work to keep it running. My main complaint is that it is difficult to control. It is a stick shift, and the turning radius is great.

- Cooper K

Great in severe winter weather or other harsh conditions.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

My Jeep is consistent, durable, hardy, sits up high and easily repaired. It is not a luxury vehicle with all options, but completely reliable and I love it.

- Amy E

A good driving vehicle for this part of the country in the snow and ice.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

I like it because I sit up high. It drives nice, and a good vehicle for winter driving. My complaint is that it is getting more difficult to get in it.

- Cheryl S

Great fun vehicle that is a joy to drive

2003 Jeep Wrangler

It is a great vehicle that I love to drive. It has a small oil leak but it is something that can be monitored and treated with oil leak stop.

- Chris P

If it suits your lifestyle it will become your best friend

2003 Jeep Wrangler

It requires a lot of gas to get around town, so not very fuel efficient or budget friendly. The upside it has a lot of customization

- Monica B

4wd means I never have to worry about getting where I need to be.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

Zero complaints, except it would be nice if it got better gas mileage! I love my Wrangler. It is the best decision I have ever made!

- Gina C

It is fun to drive in nice weather but not in the rain.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

I love the style of my vehicle. The only thing I dislike is how expensive it is to fix it, the parts and labor are just crazy.

- Kaitlyn S

It has never been in the shop and has always been reliable.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

Very dependable, never been in the shop for anything major. Has 130,000 miles and does well. I would buy another.

- Scott J

Hydroplanes too much. Radio in the car is definitely old. BUT it's a jeep and Jeeps are always a fun time.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

Hydroplanes all the time. Hard to keep clean. Engine problems and AC problems. Super fun for passengers though.

- Alison R

Jeep Wranglers are The Best

It is comfortable and reliable for the most part. It is a nice look car as well.

2003 Jeep Wrangler

I like my sturdy and reliable car. But it is gradually falling apart and I need a new one.

- Deb M

Fun times to be had in the Jeep. Especially in the summer with roof off

2003 Jeep Wrangler

Love taking roof off. Easy to park in busy neighborhoods. Too bumpy.

- Tara M

Enjoy the feeling of freedom driving down the road with the top down!

2003 Jeep Wrangler

Like the top down. like the ride. Dislike the gas mileage.
