Editor's Overview

The 2013 Jeep Wrangler really is the last of its breed. A simple vehicle designed for hard-core off-roading as well as everyday driving, the Wrangler epitomizes America’s rebellion from control. No other street-legal vehicle has removable doors and a folding windshield, and even the largest sunroof can’t match the Wrangler’s massive open-air experience.

Best decision ever! Safe and stylish.

Purchasing my Jeep wrangler was the best decision I have ever made. It is safe, durable, stylish, and overall a great car. A month after purchasing my vehicle I got rear ended, and the only damage done to my car was a small bend in my license plate, while the other car's front bumper was essentially torn off. The steel bumpers are a great add on, and any aftermarket customizations done to the vehicle will only add more style and protection to it.

Love the saddle brown leather seats that go with the vibe of the Wrangler.

Have not had any major issues with my Jeep Wrangler. Very reliable vehicle in all weather conditions and on all road surfaces. My main problems are the small windshield and tight head room. The backseat also I very uncomfortable for passengers riding along. Do not enjoy the dual roof option, the soft top takes away most of your truck space. Switching between the soft top and the hard top is very time consuming.

A Jeep wrangler is not just a car. It is a journey.

The Jeep wrangler is one of the best cars, in my opinion, for a young adult to own. There's a reason Jeep gets a shout out in Katy Perry's song California girls. Pros: the best ride for off-roading, customizability, towing, and overall low-key stunting. Cons: seats are not comfy on long road trips, wind noise when windy or going high speeds, and gas mileage.
