Owner Reviews

Quality vehicle for the long haul.

The gas consumption is pretty high. I�d appreciate a more conservative gas consumption from a this vehicle. Comfort level is high. No issues with performance other than pick up is pretty slow but it is expected. Has always been reliable and let's me know what needs to be maintained, if not it is pretty easy to find out.

I love having a wrangler that I can take the doors off of.

It's an amazing vehicle really. I have had a few issues, but only one has to do with the actual vehicle. There's something called a 'Jeep wobble' which affects jeeps made before 2007, and it caused my steering wheel to shake uncontrollably if I hit speeds over 60mph. Thankfully, I got it fixed.

Iconic Jeep wrangler through the ages.

I love my Jeep . All of the problems and recalls have been performed at this point since I bought it new in 2006. I love the iconic body style and shape which has been a Jeep trademark since ww2. I do all the recommended maintenance and it has turned out to be very reliable for my purposes.
