Other than brake work at 13000 miles I have had no trouble, but plenty of pleasure from my Wrangler X. It's fun and the looks I get are a bonus feature. Excellent off road and in snow. I have the hardtop so noise is not much of a problem.

I'll always have a Wrangler. This most recent I bought on 2/17/14, is a Rubicon, and it's amazing! So many more features than the regular Sport or "X" model! This beast will take me anywhere, it's a convertible, and very utilitarian. I just love it! Me and my Golden retriever are going to have an awesome summer! JeepDude

The best car I have owned. No problems no matter where I take it. On road, off-road, or across the country its a blast to drive.

Fun summer vehicle

I have owned this Jeep for a year now bought it with 41,000 on it loked like it had never been taken off the road. Aftermarket aluminum wheels, tires 33X10.50X15. I was looking for a manual transmission vehicle when I bought this one so I was happy to find a six speed. Really a nice ride except that the wide tires act like a powered water ski when there is water on the road, it hydroplanes very quick. I would buy another one but not to use as an everyday driver like this one. And yes for as light as it is it should get better fuel mileage, but, that was not what it was designed for, it was designed as an off road vehicle and it does that well.Value for the money? it is just like a Harley you pay extra for the name. All in all not a bad vehicle when it's just me and the dog out to see the country side.

This is my third wrangler

I can't see owning any other vehicle. It has everything you need, and it's fun. My first Wrangler was a 92, I ran it up to 200K + miles with only the transmission changed and the water pump + usual maintenance. The second was a 99 wrangler, but I didn't keep it more than a year and a half because it was an automatic. Then I baught my 2006 used with 16K miles and the difference in ride is very noticable. The gear ratio needs to be changed slightly, but the feel is very good. the steering is tight and responsive, the inline 6 will last seemingly forever and even this newer model is easy to work on. This is a vehicle you have to own at least once in your lifetime.

While I have wanted a Wrangler for what seems like forever, I purchased my Unlimited in February of this year. My past experiences with SUV's have been that while they are usually quite comfortable, they lack a certain 'fun factor'. This Unlimited is definitely NOT short on the 'fun factor'. For the kind of vehicle it is, I get decent gas mileage while having the option of putting the top down on beautiful summer days and still having the 4WD for those snowy winters. Every time I get into my Jeep, I look forward to the drive, whether its just to work or across the state but unless you own one, you're probably saying to yourself; "It must be a Jeep thing, I guess I don't understand!"

My first Jeep. I was actually looking at an F-150 when I noticed my wife clear across the lot looking at a 2006 Jeep Wrangler X soft top. Bright yellow with 21K, 21K! on it. Bought it and love it. Live on the Oregon coast and the dunes are a boatload of fun.
