Everyone should have a Jeep.

I really love my Jeep. My first car was a Jeep and that is what I learned to drive in. It is an excellent car- the tall height combined with the vehicle's slim shape makes driving and parking very easy. In addition, the big tires are a huge asset- I was in a terrible wreck a year ago and had the ties not been so large and sturdy my sister would have been killed. The tires stopped the car that hit me from hitting the actual body of the car. The only downside is how loud the large tires make the vehicle and how the car cannot drive very fast. But overall I love my Jeep and would not trade it for any other car! I recommend this to everyone, especially new drivers.

My Jeep wrangler my friend.

I have Jeep wrangler unlimited sport 2017. It is a small SUV with character. I love my car. Its unique and has personality. Jeep wrangler it's great for on and off-roading. On beautiful sunny days, I can take the top off my car and enjoy the ride even more. You cannot compare Jeep wrangler to smooth and soft rides of other minivans, Jeep wrangler is designed for people who love adventure. You have to be prepare for spending a little more money on gas, but it is totally worth it. I would definitely recommend Jeep wrangler simply because it is fun but also can be used as a family car like mine. You can customize it the way you want it. Make it look yours.

It is a vehicle that is fun to drive.

I love my wrangler. We own two! Love the exterior styling, the brightness of the headlights, the option of having both the hardtop and soft top. Inside I love the seat comfort, love the simplicity of the styling, love the adjustability of the hvac ducts. Miss some of the storage details of previous vehicles and I do not care for the two level center console storage since I seem to always open the upper tray which is pretty useless but you compromise on small things for the overall love of the vehicle. Love the heated seats, how fast the vehicle warms in winter and cools in summer. Very pleased overall with my vehicle.

Feb 7, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V098000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2017 Dodge Caravan and Jeep Wrangler vehicles. The brake switches on these vehicles may malfunction, keeping the brake lights illuminated and/or allowing the vehicle to be shifted out of the PARK position without the brake pedal being pushed.
Consequence:

Fuel System, Gasoline > Storage > Tank Assembly Nov 22, 2016
Report Receipt Date:

NHTSA Campaign:
16V849000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2017 Jeep Wrangler vehicles manufactured November 1, 2016, to November 3, 2016. The affected vehicles may have a fuel tank that has a cracked or broken control valve, possibly resulting in a fuel leak in a rollover event, debris in the fuel tank and/or the potential of over fueling the vehicle.
Consequence:
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

Air Bags > Frontal > Sensor/control Module Oct 12, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 12, 2016

16V734000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Jeep Wrangler vehicles manufactured June 16, 2015, to August 14, 2016. In certain crash conditions, the front impact sensor wiring may be pulled until it detaches before a signal can be received by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC).
Consequence:
If the ORC module does not receive a signal from the front impact sensor, both frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners will not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will reroute the front impact sensor wiring and relocate the impact sensor branch, free of charge. The recall began on November 10, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S76.
