30 grand is a lot. But the vehicle is loaded with useful extras. MPG is much better than expected thanks to the new engine. Interior design is much better than the 2011. Hardtop with removable panels is very nice. It could use another gear but that's all I would change. Amazing vehicle. Love it.

Enjoy the quick feel the Jeep has. Enjoy the versatility the Jeep offers whether that be off road, taking the top down, take the doors off and go for a drive. Very happy with the updates the Jeep has made since the last one I had in college. The rag makes minimal noise. It is relatively easy to take down and set back up. Before you basically had to comit, topo or no top, because getting everything back together could take 1 hour. Now I can do it alone and within 5 min.

Overall an awesome vehicle, really enjoyable to drive with lots of plush features compared to the older Jeeps. You can tell electronics are not the shining achievenemt of Jeep though. I have had a couple of times the windshield wipers just go off randomly once. I think it is a grounding issue from what I have heard from other Jeep owners in forums. The 2 door has very little foot room in the back seat so get the 4 door if you are a people mover... I just have a dog and a husband to cart around so back seat room was not really a big concern to me. The 2 door has more power per weight of vehicle and that's what I wanted and definately got. There is no car/truck that parallel parks better. The short wheel base is awesome and you can park just about anywhere. The plastic frame buzzed a little bit when it was vibrated by the sound system (when turned up to "this is my jam" volume) but the dealership fixed the issue by padding the buzzing part of the panelling from underneath. All issues are small overall and it is really alot of fun to drive and even park.

This is my second Jeep and my first Wrangler. I Love everything about this car including the way it handles on the road. The size is optimal for me and I love the ability to make lots of mods. I expect to have this jeep for at least a decade. I did have to get used to the reduced view out the back of the vehicle.

Glad I waited for the 2012 Wrangler with the new engine and transmission. Already seeing improvement in power/acceleration and mileage at only 600 miles is around 17.5 mpg on short trips. Leather interior and appointments inside very nice. Awkward getting into rear seat but mostly only me and passenger.

Have had two previous Wranglers. 88 and 93. What a difference. Still has the bumpy ride and nebulous steering of the wrangler but the new engine is peppy and gave me almost a 50% improvement in gas milage. The u-connect system sometimes gets confused with multiple phones and ipod sources. But overall as a prior Wrangler(s) owner, this is the best yet. Bought it Nov 11th, have 3600 miles on it. Have had it in the woods, on the beach, just waiting for some snow on Long Island.

Just got a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport and I love it. Got a base model. Just what I wanted. Drives great, comfortable and peppy. I love almost everything about the jeep. I bought it to travel around Baja and fish the beaches. Does pretty well with the stock tires. Wider ones would be helpful on the beach. Only problem I can see is that the designers spend too much time in their offices. The interior only comes in black. For a vehicle that is made for the outdoors a lighter color would be better. The seats get hot. Hey guys ever hear about gray?? Other than that it is great.

I purchased a new Jeep Wrangler Sport about 2 months ago. Man, what a fun vehicle. Do I need this? No. But I have always wanted one and with the prices of used Jeeps so high, really made sense to go ahead and spend a few extra bucks on a brand new one. One of the things that surprised me about it is that while the interior is more refined than ever and even feels much like a regular sedan, the driving feel is one of ruggedness which is what a Jeep is all about. Mine has the new 3.6 V6 and it has plenty of power and pep. I also have the 6 speed manual trans. Since this is not a daily driver for me, I certainly do not mind shifting gears. When off roading I actually feel more in control of the vehicle with the standard transmission. I also live in a hot part of the country and the AC easily keeps up. I know Jeep has a good reputation and the TJ models are legendary. However, I feel these new models will become as legendary as those. I would definitely recommend a Jeep Wrangler to my buddies.

So, I've always wanted a Wrangler and I finally caved in and got one. I must say, I'm not disappointed! This vehicle is so much fun to drive. It's got great pick-up and it turns on a dime. I love the way you sit up high and have great visibility--from the front, that is. One of the only criticisms I have is that I don't like the visibility out the rear window when the back seats are up. The headrests sit up really high and block a significant portion of my rear view. I have to figure out if the headrest is removable. Also, I bought the 2-door model and my son loves to ride in "the new car" so it's a little bit of a hassle getting him strapped into the rear seat so if you're going to have rear seat passengers frequently, definitely consider a 4-door model. Bought the car in December and have had it to the dealer once for a leak after a very bad rainstorm. But they had a leak specialist work on it and so far, no more water. *knock wood* I can't wait until warm weather when I can remove the Freedom top and really get the full Wrangler experience. And I always wave!
