Im on my third Jeep and I love them. I hate to see reviews of people complaining about the ride. Didnt you test drive it? Dont you know its a Jeep, made for off road, if you want a soft cushy ride go buy a Honda or a Toyota. Nothing beats a Jeep off road. My only complaint is I think they should of stayed with the time proven straight six. Guess well have to wait and see how the v6 holds up over time. OlllllO

Okay, like many, I 've read the reviews and decided to try the jeep wrangler anyway. I personally got a great deal on a Wrangler X soft top. Now for those of you whom want the smooth, quiet ride... this is NOT the vehicle for you. For those of you whom want to feel the road, take the top and the doors off, and look towards the mountains (I live in Colorado) to think, 'But a mole hill.' This is the car for you. It's not a sports car... it's not a minivan... it's a vehicle tuned to go off road! The ride is bumpy but it WILL get you where you need to go, regardless of the weather. I've had the jeep for three winter months and I've never failed to reach my destination, nor has it ever failed to start on the first turn. But now I ramble. Great car, drive it and see why so many people in Colorado have one. -TK

First let me say I love my 2 Door Jeep Wrangler. It's the easiest vehicle to drive that I've owned. Yes it's not that comfortable, it doesn't get get gas mileage, and it's not meet to carry around a large family. However, if you want something thats fun to drive, easy to take down to your favorite fishing hole or your favorite camp/hunting ground then the Jeep Wrangler rules. You don't have to be afraid to get back deep in the woods or go down by the river or even on the beach. The Jeep has, 6 CD changer and a great stereo, power windows and door locks, and hey you can even go topless, what more would you want. The 2 dr Wrangler isn't a family SUV but it's a must have vehicle for a redneck, back woods county boy like me.

VERY FUN TO DRIVE.. ACCESS TO THE BACK SEAT IS HORRIBLE. BUT THAT IS MY ONLY QUIRK WITH THIS VEHICLE.. JEEP SHOULD HAVE HAD A SEAT IN FRONT THAT LIFTED UP SO PASSENGERS CAN GAIN ACCESS TO THE REAR SEAT. EVEN A PAIN TO THROW GROCERIES BACK THERE AND RETRIEVE THEM. BUT AS I SAID. THATS MY ONLY PROBLEM I COULD FIND. RUNS GREAT. GAS MILEAGE IS VERY DECENT 21 MPG AVERAGE. THEY HAVE COME A LONG WAY!.. ITS MORE LIKE A CAR THAN A TRUCK FEEL.. ID BUY ANOTHER.

I finally gave into my desire to own a Wrangler rather than purchase another car or truck that I deemed to be more practical or a better value. I had purchased a Volvo S40 ten months earlier and while I loved the car, I couldn't help feeling like I had made a mistake. So, despite having a new baby to tote around, I traded in the Volvo for a 2008 Wrangler X and I couldn't be happier. I had driven a friend's '04 Wrangler Sport so I fully expected the 2008 model to be just as rough. Not even close - the 2008 model is much smoother, quieter and handles better. It's also larger and has a V-6 engine with more horsepower than previous models (prior to '07). I chose Detinator Yellow and added the 17" wheels. The Sunrider top allows me to open only half the roof in only a minute or two rather than having to put down the entire top all the time. Appearance wise, this is a beautiful Jeep. Getting the baby's car seat in and out is a little tricky. Even though the front seats fold forward to allow access to the rear seats, a car seat will not fit between the front seats (from either side) and the door frame. I have to recline the passenger seat to place put the carrier in a base anchored behind the driver seat. If we have a second child, I'll have to trade the two-door model in for a four-door. (...and yes, the top is up and the side windows are on when the baby is with me). So far, I could not be happier with my purchase. It seems that my years of waiting for the right time to purchase a Wrangler paid off. However, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the problems with the '07 model don't show up in this one. When the baby is old enough we'll resume our hiking and camping activities and then I'll take the Wrangler off road, but for now it will have to serve as my primary street vehicle which is just fine with me.

We love this thing! If you are rating this vehicle and comparing it to a Cadillac then you don't know what a Jeep is all about. For what it is, it ranks at the top in all catergories. It may be slow to get up on the highway, but that is not why you own a Jeep to begin with. Quiet, smooth, off road ability and great all around. Join a Jeep Club is my only recommendation :P

Wrangler continues to be a affordable American icon. 4x4 ability has improved. The v-6 provides stable power as opposed to the straight six which has more torque off the line. I really enjoy mine. Plenty of good power. I have the automatic transmission. Compared to my 1992 model this one is finally a real Jeep Wrangler transmission for off roading. The old one was a cobbled setup compared to the four speed unit they have know. The styling is utility minded with all the latest features of composite material molding technology. In other words do not be afraid of the plastic and rubber. It is a great thing. Both inside and out. The stability of the ride has greatly improved. Way to go Chrysler. Move on up the mountain!
