It's a Jeep Thing

by from Florida on June 1, 2011

I have a 2009 Jeep Wrangler X and I've added a 3" Teraflex lift kit and 33" Pro Comp Xtreme M/T tires. Jeep has come a long way with the JK (2007-2011) wranglers in improving the driving experience for those who use this vehicle as their daily driver. The interior is much more spacious and the interior fixtures are nicer, but remember, this is a Jeep. If you are looking for something with good gas mileage, pick another car. My city milage is around 12-13 MPG (only 14 before I added the lift kit/ oversized tires) and I'm not an aggresive driver by any means. Highway, I've gotten around 15-16. As far as performance, you aren't going to beat many vehicles off the line but wander off the pavement and there isn't another vehicle on the market that performs at the level of this Jeep.

Just bought a 09 2 door x model with the up graded wheels,power door locks and windows.would recommend this up grade package for ever day use. Pros. you sit high and know you are in a 4x4, but the jeep does handle turns with less body role would be expected. handling is better then expected for me. i have had a number of 4x4. The ride is smooth on the open road, over bumps or hard inclines you will feel how stiff the frame and suspention is, rember it is an off road vehicle. The interior is simple and funtional,you will not have to read a manual to turn on the lights. The seats are confertible but the back one is hard to get to, I wish the front seat would travel a little more forward to let people in the back. The engine is smooth and around town with some hwy driving 16-17 mpg is reasonable for me. The soft top is much quiter then expected Cons. a little more interior storage to put the little things needed, getting into the back seats. I do not think for someone new to jeeps this is a hard comprimise, a fun vehicle to drive,good over all performance for a v6. I the wrangler is a great very good vehicleand the wife loves it, so much I do not get to dive it much

best version yet

I've owned 2 previous jeeps: a '97 and an '01. This by far is the best version IMO. I opted for the sunrider soft top, and I am amazed at how much quieter it is at highway speeds as compared to the previous one. Outside, it just looks nice, with wide fenders and that famous grille. Inside, there is a noticeable increase in leg room and hip room, thanks to it's widened wheel base. The 6-speed manual is a lot of fun to drive, and there are ample nooks for storage. I can't comment yet on the operation of the soft top (winter here), but it doesn't look that different from the previous version (which was pretty easy). I traded my small, economical car in for this, and so far, am very happy with my decision. Shift-on-the-fly 4WD will be great for our Upstate NY winters, and the added Electronic Stability Program and Anti-Roll Mitigation provides improved security. Gas Mileage is pretty much in the toilet, but you have to expect that when driving a brick wall around! Overall, a beautiful vehicle and highly recommended.

I've Always Loved Jeeps

This is the 3rd Jeep Wrangler I have owned, so I'm a little biased. I love driving them though. They are powerful. I love taking them mudding. I love going on drives with the family when the top is off. They are fun vehicles. If you are looking for a 4WD, but are wanting a smoother, quiet ride, this isn't for you. If you are looking for a car to save on gas, this definitely isn't for you. If you are looking for a great value, a Jeep isn't for you. If you are looking for something comfortable, this isn't for you. However, if you are looking for something fun that can go basically anywhere, then get a Wrangler. However, if you're going to spend the money on one, use it for what they're meant for!

Jeep Wrangler 2009

by from Danbury CT on December 6, 2014

Make sure tires are ok, check soft top for any holes. Make sure you are ok getting into the back seat, it is a very tight space.

The Fun Jeep

by from Metairie, LA on April 24, 2009

I've had this car for about a month and it is by far the best 4x4 I've owned. I bought the Sahara 4dr 4X4. I needed the xtra room. I was also able to get $5800 off the sticker price.
