2000 Jeep Wrangler Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Wrangler is a direct descendant of the World War II Jeep that many regard as the original SUV. Wrangler descends from a line that started in 1941 with the military Jeep and morphed into the post-war CJ series. The modern-day Wrangler arrived in 1987 and was redesigned for 1997. A new Wrangler is expected to arrive as a 2002 model.

Like the Chevrolet Tracker and its twin, the Suzuki Vitara, the Wrangler is targeted at younger drivers who will enjoy the low price, top-down driving and not be put off by the relatively Spartan amenities.

Interior
It is easier to enjoy tunes this year with the addition of a standard cassette player on the Sport model and a CD player on the top-line Sahara. Both also come with four speakers, two more than last year’s standard fare. All models come with front bucket seats. A two-place folding rear bench is standard on the Sport and Sahara, optional on the base SE.

Exterior
There’s no mistaking the Wrangler’s heritage, starting with an upright vertical grille that mimics the World War II version. A folding windshield, folding convertible top and steel half doors with zip-out plastic side windows add to the paramilitary appearance. A metal hardtop and roll-up side windows are optional.

Under the Hood
Jeep’s trusty 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder remains the base engine, and a 190-horsepower 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder is optional. Part-time 4WD (for slippery surfaces only) is standard across the board.

Performance
Though Wrangler is far more civilized than the original Jeep, it maintains the same rugged character and appearance. It clearly is not for everyone, but it remains an icon of the sport ute market and is a true off-road vehicle.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
