Third Jeep In Our Family

We were looking for a moderately priced Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for a teenage son and this one fit the bill. For a roughly 8 year old vehicle it was well taken care of by previous owners. Although the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited won’t be confused with a luxury car for its ride and comfort, they are adequately appointed and fun to drive. That’s where the saying, “it’s a Jeep thing “ comes from. All I know is that in our area they are very popular and our teenage son will thoroughly enjoy it if he can ever get it away from his Mom.

I love it so much!

Such a fun car! It drives great and is so much fun to customize. There are thousands of products out there to customize Wranglers to fit the individual perfectly. I hope to get another one too some day!

New Jeep fan

I purchased this vehicle because we live near the water and the beach and wanted something that could handle the flooded roads as well as take us on off road adventures. This 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon came with TeraFlex lift kit, upgraded drive shafts, 35 “ Toyo AT tires, hardtop, and all the comfort features to make driving to the beach enjoyable too. Room for the grandkids and our doggies plus equipment too. Already enjoying this purchase and haven’t even really done any fun stuff yet due to the coronavirus travel restrictions!

Jeep Wrangler 4x4 Sport Unlimited, need I say more

It is so high quality, both outside and inside, as well as the mechanical performance. I am so well pleased, I'm going to drive it across Country, without a concern! Especially with the 2 year maintenance guarantee, and the service contract that they helped me fit into the finance agreement. I'm going back for my next car!

not as reliable as I hoped

I bought a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited used in 2019 and have had several issues within the first three months. The vehicle was purchased with only 80,000 miles so I did not expect to have so many problems. So far we’ve had to replace the entire emergency brake system, the exhaust system needed work, now we’re going to need to drop the fuel tank to figure out why we smell gas fumes all the time to name a few. I’m starting to wonder if we have a lemon. We own a 1997 jeep wrangler and love it. We’re going to fix the fuel leak issue and see how it goes. Any more issues though and we’re going to try and sell it.

A lot nicer than the old ones

I bought the Jeep because I like them and have owned a few. I always sell them because I got sick of the ride and lack of interior room. The 4 door jk is very nice and a lot smoother ride than the 2 door models. I have 2 small children in car seats and they fit fine in the back seat

best performing Jeep out there

This car looks good and drives good and at the same time if you want you can use it to have fun too , I’ve never been in an accident or done anything to the car to effect it .

Jeeper for Life

This Jeep is fun and versatile. Not a super smooth ride because it's not meant to be. I'll always love wranglers. I loved my two door, but four doors allows passengers to get in and out much easier than before.

Best car I’ve ever own.

This car has always been my dream car. It drive well and most definitely handles the snow perfectly. Best car I’ve ever had and won’t go back to anything else.

LOVE my Jeep

This is the 2nd Jeep Wrangler that I have owned and, it will not be the last. This jeep is the Sahara Unlimited, 6 speed manual transmission. So much fun to drive. I find it to be quite comfortable and handles any weather and road condition I have encountered perfectly. It is the perfect combination of family vehicle and toy. Switching from the hard top to soft top and back is a fairly simple procedure. It took less than an hour to remove the hard top and apply the soft top last spring, which was the very first time we made the switch. I feel that we will be able to get this done in about 30 minutes this next spring, now that we know what we are doing. When fall came, removing the soft top and putting the hard top back on took less than 30 minutes. I prefer a manual transmission and this one does not disappointing. Of course, it is super fun to drive but, it has GREAT Giddy up!! While I had to select (below) that the primary use of this car is for "Transporting Family", I also use it for fun and playing!!
