You'll Like The 2011 Jeep Wrangler If...

If you have a real need for all-season capability, or simply a strong desire to depart the beaten path, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler is a tough recipe to beat. And with city streets and freeways providing an increasingly unfriendly atmosphere to standard, car-based suspensions, large tires and real ground clearance are increasingly handy for the committed urbanite.

Great for every occasion and all weather that comes your way!

She has some typical Jeep problems that many get. For example, the heater core needs replaced and there's a small evap leak. Both common and easy fixes. However, she has never let me down in any way. Starts right up and handles great in all weather conditions. It is a Jeep and comes with all the good and bad of Jeeps so if you know what to expect is an awesome fun vehicle that I always feel safe in while driving!

A summer vacation everyday!

I love my Jeep Wrangler sport unlimited. It is comfortable and built solid. There are many different modifications you can do to it if you are into working on cars. Not only is it comfortable and built solid, but the ability to take the top and doors off in the summer is such a unique feeling. The only con I see with my vehicle is the gas mileage. With 35” tires I get about 10mpg.

Not good gas mileage a only 15 mpg.

Love owning a Jeep. I have a 4 door, hardtop and it is very easy to take off the top over just the front seats. I would love to take off the whole top, but I don't have the space to store it and it is a 2 person job. Always get lots of compliments - people seem to love Jeeps. Only downfall is that it does not get as good of gas mileage as I would have thought. Only about 15mpg.
