A few under-performances but a vehicle I will always cherish.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Arctic

I really enjoy my 2012 arctic edition wrangler unlimited. The style and color scheme is beautiful. I love the way the windshield is closer and more vertical is comparison with other vehicles. Visibility is superb. It's roomy and the rear fold down seats in addition to the rear end space makes it easy to pack for long trips or load up my large dogs for a ride. It's easy to clean and the interior is rugged. I do not like the fact that 6th gear gives no pickup and is basically for fast downhill travel. The shocks and steering are beginning to get sloppy and bumpy. The gas mileage has been decreasing over the past couple years from about 21mpg to about 17 now. The 4 wheel drive works great and of course being a Jeep I love taking the top and doors off in warm weather. It is such a freeing feeling thriving under the open sky and hopping in and with ease. The stereo system with the extra built in subwoofer sounds incredible. Oh yeah and I love the whole Jeep community. And how they wave to each other.
