Jeep wrangler unlimited: buy the warranty.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

I absolutely love the jeep itself. It is an unlimited wrangler hardtop with leather seats and it is the most fun vehicle I have ever owned. Any jeep. Lover knows that they come with their fair share of issues. Mine is a 2012 and I bought it in 2016 used and if you ever take anyone's advice when buying a jeep: get the extended warranty. It is worth it. I have had to replace the engine 3 times, I have replaced the radiator twice, and all the belts as well as the water pump. Thankgod all of it is covered under the warranty, because it is the most fun thing I have ever bought.

The hard top roof is easy to remove and put back on.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

We have the lowest end model so no electric locks or windows. It's a manual and fun to drive but it gets hot. I have a baby and we want to sell it now because it gets so warm in the back seat. The AC works great but the roof gets hot which makes it warm in the back. Sometimes it's hard to see the front side fenders when parking so it's deceiving. I do like driving it. It's fun and can go anywhere. We have mud tires on it which aren't great in the snow but in 4wd it's pretty good.

Fun to drive, reliable vehicle

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Reliable in the snow and winter weather when in 4 wheel drive. I've had this vehicle for 2.5 years, purchased used, 4 years old and have had no issues other than the usual wear and tear (tires, shocks). It's fun to drive. It can be a little shaky when driving fast on the freeway but I think that's because I have large, beefy tires. Gas mileage isn't as bad as I was expecting either, I average about 16 mpg in the winter, 20 mpg in the summer.

A small, but durable, vehicle.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Absolutely love this car. It is comfortable, durable and easy to maneuver. Parking/tight turns are easier than in any car I have driven. My only complaint would be that the cloth top is noisy when I'm driving above 50 mph and is not as easy to put back on as it is to take off and that, though convenient to drive, it is not very spacious, so passengers aren't exactly comfortable, especially not in the back seat.

Perfect car for outdoor and family adventures

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

It is a great car for taking on adventures, it can handle all types of weather and terrain, it is safe for children and has additional safety hooks for car seats. Be aware it will only fit two car seats, not three. We plan to get it rhino lined and add a rack to the top for camping and dive gear, and with those additions it will be the perfect car.

- Emily F

It is the jeep that just will not quit.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Add a 130,000 miles, cylinder 1 will not fire due to an issue with the head. Lacking power and causing a rough shake. Soft top leaks and holds water until turns. Back seat will not stay flipped up. Very durable vehicle while has issues, this jeep is better the most vehicles I have ever had. Probably the most dependable even with the issues.

Driving on the beach in the summertime.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

The vehicle is wonderful has not had many issues. It rides wonderful. The gas mileage is awful but it is worth it to have a jeep. We take it off roading on the beach. We love taking the top off on a nice summer day. Our family named our jeep black betty. She is wonderful and everyone in the family has a great time when we are all together.

- Sidney O

The car has literally no problems at all.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

So far no problems with my car besides changing oil quite often. It drives well and is good for off roading. We have taken it camping a few times. The seats are very comfortable and have a lot of room to get comfortable. Enough room for our 2 dogs in the back. It hasn't broken down or overheated at all. So far it's a good vehicle

2012 Jeep Wrangler- A fun everyday vehicle

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Gas mileage is not great. Jeep is comfortable most of the time but not as much for longer travel over 5 hours. My jeep was basic and needed to upgrade radio. It's been reliable and have not had any performance issues. The soft top is easy to do take off. If you take off completely it requires 2 people to get back on.

Jeep Wrangler sport review

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

The gas mileage isn't the greatest. But if you don't need to drive far distances, this shouldn't be a problem for others. I love how compact it is. But at the same time I can also fit my 2 'large' dogs in the back if I take the seat out. Overall I really recommend the Jeep sport. You don't need the fancy radio

- Stephanie A

Fun off road vehicle with tons of modifications available

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Love the freedom tops but they leak sometimes. Gas mileage is not that good but you don't buy a Jeep for the gas mileage. Love that the doors come off. Love being able to go off-roading. Wrangler is very sporty and fun to drive. There are so many modifications you can purchase to make it unique

- Christina B

I love my wrangler unlimited.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

I have driven my jeep wrangler unlimited for nearly eight years. It has been very reliable and versatile. I have towed boats and trailers, used it as my everyday driver, occasionally used it as a work truck on a home remodel, and taken countless topless cruises with my children. Great vehicle!

- Rick B

My jeep is all blacked out and looks amazing!

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

I love my jeep so much! I really haven't had any problems with it at all. It is reliable and was my dream car! I finally got it and it has done super awesome so far! One thing I do notice is that it is pretty loud on the highway, but I also blast my music so it is never a problem for me.

- Brittany M

The top can come down and the door.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

The only problem I have with my car is the top. I love everything but the top problem. The top is the only problem. The top is the only problem. The top is the only problem. The top is the only problem. The top is the only problem. The top is the only problem. The top is the problem.

2012 jeep wrangler sport unlimited sport review of my all time favorite.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

I love my jeep wrangler 4 door sport, always been a big huge fan of jeep wranglers. It is a great car and everything you can modify a lot on these vehicles from lights, flares, wheels, suspension and also interior. I do wish tho that these vehicles came equipped with a v8 option.

- Jesus H

jeep wranglers are great cars

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

I love my jeep it is great, it is reliable stood up to a lot wear. I like that it is leather interior it makes it stay new looking. The only annoying thing is that it is loud on the highway and bad in the windy conditions, I think putting bigger tires in it helped a lot

- brig G

Fun to drive and super functional vehicle.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Jeep wrangler are fun, multi purpose vehicles. They are reliable and fun to drive. One thing I would change is the material used in the cargo area. It is difficult to clean if you have dogs. Other than that, I love owning a jeep! Will be the next car I buy as well.

- April E

My 2012 black ragtop jeep wrangler.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Runs great for a 2012. Really like the ability to take the top off with easy. Not great on gas. The back seat is a little tight. Manual drive makes it fun to drive and has good pick up. Like the black exterior color. Do not like the cloth seats. Speakers are good.

- Rich R

I really love driving my Jeep

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

My 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport is very fun to drive. It is a 6 speed, so it is interactive. I enjoys using the satellite radio. The Bluetooth connection is useful for hands free phone calls. The soft convertible top is a bit of a pain in the neck, but I but I manage.

- Thomas T

The best part about having a jeep is being able to go anywhere..

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

My check engine light comes on frequently but most of the time it is an easy fix. I love my car so much and I think it is worth every dollar I have to spend on it. I love that I have a hard and soft top. It is such a fun car to drive. I would recommend it 100%.

- Samantha L

The life of a jeep wrangler.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

This vehicle is a very reliable and comfortable car. It survived winters in Minnesota (gets to be -40 degrees f and summers above 100 degrees f without any heat or ac problems. This is a comfortable, fun vehicle to have! I definitely recommend a jeep wrangler!

- Chelsea S

Great car overall - issues with trunk hinge.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Almost no problems - only issue was the hinge in the truck snapped (it is not designed well) so I have to hold the door open sometimes. I took it to get fixed but it broke shortly after. Have over 30,000 miles on it and have had very few other issues.
