Jeep Rubicon don't be left behind!
Its the best one built yet!

By Georgesummers on September 11 @ 11:00 am
this car is an all around off-road monster. you can take it anywhere, anytime.if you want a cheap, realiable, off-road, fun to drive car, this is it.

By scrane48084 on April 16 @ 11:00 am
I love my Jeep...kinda
It's got just about every disadvantage going for it. Mediocre to poor gas mileage (especially for a vehicle this small), bumpy/bouncy ride, noisier than a motorcycle, no cargo space, not a highway car AT ALL...despite all those things..it's got one huge ADVANTAGE...IT'S FUN AS HELL TO DRIVE.

By JeepDude on February 4 @ 11:00 am
I love this thing!
I bought my jeep a few weeks ago and already it has lived up to the "Jeep" name. I wouldn't want another vehicle. Very pleasent dealing with the great staff over at Hall Jeep, Va Beach. Thumbs up guy's. Would buy another in a heartbeat. Just can't afford it now:)

Wrangler Rubicon
I love my new 04 Rubicon everything is perfect on it. I have had Jeeps for the last 8 years since i turned 16. This is truly the best Jeep I've ever had.

Jeep Rubicon
Its like the commercial- you never had so much fun going 3 mph. All Jeep CJ, YJ, and TJ will go just about anywhere. The Rubicon, with lower gearing, taller tires, and locking (in low 4wd) heavy duty axles goes everywhere. Dont buy it if bumpy bothers you. Hook up with Jamborees and Camp Jeep and you'll get every dollar of fun.

Best Car. No Doubt

By scubabeachnjohn on December 13 @ 11:00 am
3rd one is a charm
I've had two other wranglers. This one is clearly the best of the best. I have had the chance to take it off road on several occations and it performed great. I'm always getting compliments on it. It gets more attention than my friends Corvette Z06. The only complaint is the gas mileage. @15-18mpg with manual trans. However, I knew that going into it. Get one before they stop making them. A true collectors item.

By T. W. on December 13 @ 11:00 am
Ruby my Jeep
New rear end unexpectedly @ 8000 miles. The new air lock broke while backing up a very small incline and one back wheel spun. Unable to unlock rear lock, towed to nearest dealer and warranty covered it. For a jeep built for off road, I was surprised by how little it took on road to break it. So far so good @ 9000 miles.

By Slickrockv on December 13 @ 11:00 am
The best...period
As a trail driving lover, the sedelopment of the Rubicon is quite possibly the best thing to ever happen to a jeep. it is rough and can take on anything that we have put it up to. i highly recoment this car to anyone slightly interestedin 4 wheeling.

By tanner on December 13 @ 11:00 am
Great car, but spark knocks horribly
The Jeep wrangler is a great car, but both of them that I've had spark knock and the dealership mechanics can never figure out what's wrong with it. It hinders the fun of driving it.

By Arif Alhassan on December 13 @ 11:00 am
nice SUV
the hood should open from inside and the fuel cap should have a safe key.

By mime on September 8 @ 11:00 am
I have found that my Jeep Wrangler is a go anywhere I want to go Vehicle. IN the eight years that I have owned my Jeep It has done everything I wanted it to do. I have Rechievecd three quarter ton exten cab pick -ups from the bottom of 4x4 trails to winching other jeeps off logs and out of seven foot deep ditches. I find it quite manuverable with plenty of power to spare.

By alicat379 on September 8 @ 11:00 am
I have had my wrangler for 5 years,never had any problem whatsoever! It's fun to drive,great to put the top down and just go! We took it from Ohio to Tennessee,had a great time in the mountains,it goes anywhere.This jeep does much better than my hubby's ford truck in mud or snow,both 4wd. I'm hooked!

By exoticjeep on September 8 @ 11:00 am
Holds its Value with minimum depriciation! Everyone loves to ride in it. It handles so bad with 2 straight axles on springs with fat balloon tires its actualy fun to drive!

This vehicle has been an absolute dream to own and to drive. Every aspect of it has been better than I imagined. Reliable and fun and well engineered.

Best all around 4X4
I love my new Wrangler Sport. It is a blast to drive and alot different from the older modles. I dont know what edmunds is talking about when they say the top is hard to use.... This is the easiest soft top ever to put up or take down..... Jeep has done another great job. A Jeep wave out to you all........

I love my Rubicon
I absolutley love my Rubicon!! This is my 3rd Jeep, so I think I can officially say, "This is it!"

By jpt0001 on March 26 @ 3:00 am
Jeep for fun
If you want a fun automobile, the Jeep Wrangler Sport is for you. The kids love it. Its fun to drive, and easy to park. It is built like a tank. Sold steel construction, with a sturdy roll bar. Probably one of the safest convertables that you could ever own.

By fireguy CO on March 26 @ 3:00 am
First Jeep
This has been the most enjoyable vehicle I have purchased in years. It does great on the highway and performs very well in all traffic situation. Off road it is nearly perfect . So far it has not been stuck or bogged down. We are looking forward to going off road alot more next season. We have installed F and R steel bumpers, purchased a winch & exterior light guards. The last addition to our Rubicon will be a 2"or 3" Skyjacker lift kit.

By jeep boy on December 20 @ 3:00 am
Love the Jeep Wrangler
I love this vehicle. I just "downgraded" from a Ford F150 that I owned for six years. The F150 was huge, safe, and had tons of cargo space. The Jeep is a huge improvement. Better seats that support my back, easy to park, convertible, corners without throwing things around the cabin, stops more easily, and still has tons of torque and power. What it lacks in practicality, it makes up for in its near-motorcycle fun factor without the requisite organ donation.

I Like it
It is cool looking and comfortable.

By Julianne on February 18 @ 3:00 am
I love it!
I used to own a 95 Wrangler! Wow, what a difference! (in comfort!) This is a fun truck that gets a lot of attention (when it's nice and clean-with those tires really shiny!) Haven't put it's off-road capabilities to the full test yet, but Jeep's never let ya down!

By lilfirelaw on February 18 @ 3:00 am
What a blast
This is my first JEEP and I absolutly love it. Just can't wait to find some place here in Germany to take it off road.

By JGC. on February 18 @ 3:00 am
Great enjoyable 4WD.
Very ejoyable in many outdoors aspects

By colorado1974 on February 1 @ 3:00 am
Every Car Should be This Fun!!!!!
Don't get this if you have a 2 hour daily commute or need to carry 5 people all the time. Get this if you want to grin from ear to ear every second you are behind the wheel. Nothing in the world compares to this! This is the only convertible you can buy that will carry a Dog, your wife, luggage and pull a boat all at the same time. Hell, you could to all that and cross a 3 foot deep puddle.

By TBNNashua on February 1 @ 3:00 am
Go Anywhere!
I love my Jeep. Having always wanted one, I am happy that I finally have one. The noise is not as big of an issue as I had thought it would be. It is noisy, but I can still talk on a cell phone while driving, and the person on the other end can still hear. There is really no major negatives to this vehicle. It is great!

By GregA602 on October 28 @ 3:00 am
Finally decided to Buy a Jeep
Though certainly not for everyone, owning a Jeep Wrangler can be very rewarding. Every time I shopped for a vehicle over the past 15 years I considered buying a Jeep. For reasons usually related to practicality I talked myself out of it. This time I did not. Though a generally rugged ride; navigating area roadways in a Jeep is a blast. It's powerful, solid, and packed with enough basic creature comforts to take care of its owner. Unlike many vehicles I've purchased in the past, I've never regretted buying my Jeep. It's a genuine what you see is what you get experience

By mmp on July 6 @ 3:00 am
best jeep ever
I am very happy with this Jeep. 35000 miles in first year with no major problems. Although I would like to have a bit more cargo room.

By MD on July 6 @ 3:00 am
This is by far the most fun vehicle on the road today. This is NOT a commuter car, this is a drop the top weekend convertible that can go anywhere. Chrysler has kept this vehicle true to it's heritage. This was a suprise b-day gift from my wife - THANKS T.

By DRCLAYLEE on June 19 @ 3:00 am
rubicon..gotta have one
this has been a fun ride........ would highly recommend a rubicon to everyone this is the ultimate jeep

By teds on November 4 @ 3:00 am
actual off road user
I use the jeep for a lot of trips to places where the four wheel drive is required, i.e. death valley, anza borrego ect. I love my Jeep and have owned a series of five of them over the last decade. The wrangler is relatively inexpensive with premier off road ability, it sacrifices in the comfort area. If comfort and good off road ability is what you want, look at the jeep grand cherokee and stay away from the BMW X-5 and Mercedes M class!!

By jeepmaster on July 31 @ 3:00 am
only in a jeep
great vehicle, true 4 wheel drive convertible, jeepers are a breed of their own, most of my friends are jeepers.

By tjim on January 21 @ 3:00 am
You get what you get
Hey, if you buy a jeep, you're not going to get a luxury car. You get a fun to drive, reliable, off-road machine! Laugh at everyone that gets stuck in the snow, and feel the summer wind in your face with the top down. Live life! own a jeep.

By akefjd on January 21 @ 3:00 am
amazing dream car
good driving, it is my favorite car in the world. it is the best car

By Offroute on January 21 @ 3:00 am
Its a Jeep thing
All of these reviews are starting to frustrate me. If you are looking for a cheap car that rides like a Cadillac Deville and has design like an Aston Martin Vanquish, give up. If you are one of those people who expect to get into a Wrangler and enjoy the same type of experience that you would have in a regular sedan, here is my advice to you: Give up. The Jeep Wrangler community is a special breed of automotive enthusiasts. That's why whenever Wrangler drivers pass each other on the street, they wave. Basically what it comes down to is that it's simply a Jeep thing, and you may or may not understand.

Randy's Rubicon OlllO
I had a 2000 se with the 4cyl this jeep this Jeep is a lot better it's sound proofing is 100% better the drive and the Transmission is the most notable Improvement over the older 4 cyl which is to be expected but if you want a car or truck that has no road noise this isn't but the open air design and off road capabilties are the best.

By Raptorboi on July 14 @ 3:00 am
Awsome Jeeps
Never had a Problem, Best Vehicle ever owned.

2004 Wrangler Sport
Awesome car.

By inspect7 on May 22 @ 3:00 am
Great buy
This is my second Jeep in 4 years. My first Jeep was a base model purchased new with a four cylinder - and was slow to accelerate (also, the mileage was awful - 13mpg all around - and I am not an aggresive driver). In addition, it was loud with the softtop. With the six cylinder the power is abundant and the mileage is better (Overall average around 18mpg). Fun to drive - a head turner. Ride in lap of luxury with the Sahara without the expense of the exotic imports. Insurance is low, re-sale high. Reasonable sound levels with the hard top. Stock CD/Stereo is sweet.

By Dathenous on August 8 @ 3:00 am
Still the best 4x4 on the road
As a previous Jeep owner, I had an idea of what I was getting into, but after buying and driving my new 2004 Wrangler, I found that it was a whole new beast. The engine feels very beefy, lots of power. I opted for the 4-speed auto, which is IMHO the biggest enhancement of these new models. The interior is much quieter when driving at highway speed. If you're looking for a fun 4x4 convertible, this is your only option. If you need to haul, well, anything, this is not for you (very limited storage space).

By Spence on August 8 @ 3:00 am
Spence loves his jeep!
Is it love? I think it is! My jeep never ceases to exite me with the confidence inspiring performance put out by the solid straight six engine nestled in the front of the car. This engine, not found in any other Chrysler brand, puts out a more than adaquite 190 hp and an exhilarating 210 ft/lbs of torque. Though this is certainly no road car, being far more suitable for off-roading, it still is a hoot to drive. I also love the fact that It makes most of its torque at IDLE and that it's 4WD low gear ratios turn its 210 ft/lbs into more like 600 for truly incredible off road ability.

By Jlemma on July 21 @ 3:00 am
Wrangler X model
I have owned 8 wranglers over the years. They are the most reliable go anywhere vehicle around. Owning a Jeep Wrangler is a love affair. There is no in between.It's off road capability is the best I have seen. Its rugged,good looking in a boxy kind of way.

Jeep Wrangler
I have been a proud Jeep owner since 1998 and I wouldn't trade my Jeep in for anything in this world! I love it. It has been the best thing I have ever driven. You go Jeep!!

By jimmywalker on April 17 @ 3:00 am
Great for what it does.
This is THE BEST offroad vehicle stock, period. I wish it had a bit of a lift and a little wider tires, but I can understand that lawyers are involved. But its a great platform to build on with stock lockers, Dana44 axles, beefy transfer case, etc. Make no mistake, this is built for offroad, so it won't ride like a minivan. Lots of the features are for offroad only. (For the guy who "broke" his lockers...never, never, never, never use the lockers on-road. Ever. The fact that you have to shift into 4Low and not driving faster than 10mph should be a clue they were intended for rock crawling, not grocery getting).

My Rubicon
What a Jeep! Took it off raod and WOW! Couldn't get it stuck if i tried. Crawled over rocks, ledges, did off camber runs. Just fantastic. Got mine with the dual tops and paid 23,500 after rebates. I have had offroad vehilces for over 20 years and this is the best bar none!

By hawkstud on September 20 @ 3:00 am
my wrangler x
i have had no problems with the jeep not being reliable, and i have driven it on about 4 trips of 250 miles or more. the fuel economy of the vehicle is poor, about 10mpg on the highway and 11 in the city. however, i have put a 4inch lift and 33inch tires on the jeep. i would be perfectly comfortable if i were a little smaller, but i am a larger person. it has a strong frame, i was in one accident where a guy rearended me going about 25 or 30 mph. all the happened was a small bend in the bumper, and the front fenders were bent from being pushed into a ford f350.

Jeep Rubicon
I am very excited about my new Rubicon, I have had it in the colorado mountains and it's performance was unsurpassed. I went where other jeeps could not and with ease. I have owned 2 other jeeps in the past, but this Rubicon (stock) is awesome.

By joyal on June 23 @ 3:00 am
i love my wrangler
people that don't own wranglers are doubtful - doubtful that a convertible is warm enough in the winter - well, it's been in the negative temps for two weeks straight and i can honestly tell you, my jeep starts every morning and takes less time than our other vehicles to warm up. people are doubtful they are safe - we live in the snow belt of upstate new york, it is very rare, in fact i have never seen a jeep wrangler in a ditch, usually it is the wrangler pulling another vehicle out. i am 40 years old and have owned two wranglers, i will never be happy without one.

By Steve and Karen on March 19 @ 3:00 am
Love our Jeep Wrangler SE
My hubby and I have wanted a Jeep Wrangler SE for several years. The van we had was totalled 7 months ago...so we thought..what the heck...best decision we ever made. It's true...when you drive down the road...other jeep owners wave..it's so cool...we love it :)

By Shaggy on March 19 @ 3:00 am

2004 Wrangler Rubicon (Manual)
This is my first Jeep. Did I ever hit a home run! This baby will go anywhere that I have enough guts to try. I'm doing my first Jeep Jamboree soon, and am really looking forward to learning more about the Rubicon's capabilities. My wife loves it. She won't admit it, but I think she enjoys driving it more than her Corvette. There is no other vehicle on earth in this price range that can safely climb steep hills and slog through treacherous mud pits all with the greatest of ease.

By hoosk on March 1 @ 3:00 am
2004 Jeep Rubicon
Although I think Jeep is a great product, but the Jeep Rubicon can't be a Jeep it's to perfect. Feels like a dream driving it. Beefy tires, factory lift, Dana axels, locking difs. and more! Of corse it's a Jeep and that means modifications! But it is one of the most excellent investments I have made in quite sometime. GO JEEP! ALSO if you live in the New Mexico area please be wise and do not buy your Jeep (or anything) from Casa Chrysler/Jeep located in Albuquerque. This company is un-trustworthy.

By rellommihcs on November 26 @ 3:00 am
So far REAL good. Im happy with the vehicle I traded in a great vehicle (01 dakota 4x4). But it was to big for my needs.

By gsemike on November 26 @ 3:00 am
I had a great time tooling around Maui for a week in a Wrangler Sport. It's great fun but be aware of the limitations if you're buying this for an everyday driver. This is not a car based SUV like a RAV4 but rather a full time rear drive, live axle truck. It's extremely capable but rough around the edges. For the right people, that is a positive.

By bt800 on November 8 @ 3:00 am
Great Convertable
This is a great convertable! It offers a economical price with diverse utility value. It is rugged and there is not a lot of space, so if you need that get a mini van or big SUV. If you want a reliable fun convertable that can go anywhere, the Wrangler is for you. It comes with all the goodies; Cd, cruise, AC, intermitent wipers, etc.

By Motoman on August 4 @ 3:00 am
Could be soooo good, if Daimler cared...
I use this Jeep as intended. I tow, regularly go off roading and drive the wheels off the thing. The build quality is awfull! I have had problems with the water pump, several vacuum hoses, the steering, the transmission, the stereo/subwoofer,and the wiper motor. The dealers can't really fix the stuff because the replacement assemblies are the same poor quality units the Wrangler is built with. The finish on the body, hatch hinges, wheels is not durable at all. The fuel economy is poor for a small SUV. Never better than 16 mpg. With all this time the manufacturer has had to develop this vehicle, you still need the aftermarket to make it right.

By jeepollllo on July 18 @ 3:00 am
As Good As It Gets!
Traded my 2000 Sahara for the Rubicon and man this Jeep is as good as it gets. Goes through snow and ice with no problem. Being from Pittsburgh where it hasn not stopped snowing since I have gotten the Ruby. Can't even wait to get this offroad only addition recommended is the winch and your ready for almost anything. Truly is only one...Jeep Rubicon

By digifine on October 4 @ 3:00 am
I recently moved to colorado and participate in a number of active sports. This vehicle has been the perfect match. I knew what I was getting into buying this, and frankly I expected a much cruder and unrefined vehicle. I have had numerous passengers comment on how nice the ride is compared to older jeeps. But who cares about that? Offroad is where this thing shines, wheter it be a technical 4x4 trail or the deep colorado snow, it handels it in stride. Built very solid, strong engine, can you say torque? Hasnt had a single mechanical problem- Im good with maintainace, but am not shy about flogging it on the trail.

By mwgiese on October 4 @ 3:00 am
Although the Rubicon looks great and boasts hard-core options such as the 4:1 transfer case, Dana 44s, lockers, etc., I have found the quality of the vehicle to be too poor to justify buying this vehicle (in retrospect). In the three months I have owned the Jeep it has been in the shop five times for transfer-case and rear differential work, including two complete transfer case replacements! Save yourself the headache and buy an old Jeep (before Chrysler got a hold of them), buy quality aftermarket options, and install them yourself.

By Sean7373 on October 4 @ 3:00 am
These things are great !!!!!!
I have owned cherokees, grand cherokees and my girlfriend owns a liberty and this is by far the most fun and versitle vehicle I have ever owned.You can't beat a convertable in the summer and the best four wheel drive system to get you through winter.

By Dewlix on December 21 @ 3:00 am
My First Jeep
I've wanted a Wrangler since I was 19 (now 44). Wish I'd bought one sooner...more fun/exciting than any vehicle I've owned. Mileage sucks, but worth the high fun-factor this vehicle has. Only drawback is the wife hates it!

By KimmyB77 on September 16 @ 3:00 am

2004 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
The last Jeep I owned was a 1991 Wrangler. This 2004 Wrangler is a greatly improved automobile. The fuel economy could be better for its size...but overall I am very please with the purchase. No buyers remorse...

By Mark0 H on March 8 @ 3:00 am
Solid as a rock
Fun,solid and go anywhere vehicle. People that like jeeps buy jeeps...people that are looking for a cutsie mobile look elsewhere.

By nellbe10 on December 3 @ 3:00 am
Wranglers are the best
Jeep Wranglers are the best all terrain and all season vehicle. You can 4x4 in the snow during the winter and drive in the sand with the top off in the summer. The only thing is, you have to be into the ruggedness of a Jeep. It's not for anyone looking for luxury. It's fun, reliable and one of a kind.

By PoppaZ on August 30 @ 3:00 am
New Jeep Wrangler Sport
I bought this as a second car; primarily for the snow, sun and fun. I expect my son will be driving this vehicle in the past so I also consider safety, roll-over and fun. The jeep itself is larger inside than I expected for the driver and front passenger. It is tight in the back and there is very limited trunk space, but it still works for me.

By M Mc on February 20 @ 3:00 am
The legend lives on
Jeep's latest Wrangler is a fitting addition to a line that can trace its roots back to the Jeep of WW2. You can go anywhere and do anything in this vehicle. Words of warning - it's not a car. If you're looking for a car ride and car comforts, look elsewhere. The interior is utilitarian and clean, the ride is solid, and the cornering is much better than I expected for a Jeep.

By john doesitright on November 16 @ 3:00 am

great overall vehicle, powerfull, poor on gas, shackes if you don't down shift, but the truck as a whole is nothing but a pleasure to drive

If you are looking for a fun car to get you from a to b or just looking for a car you can mess around with, the wrangler is the Jeep for you, There are many aftermarket parts to customize the wrangler to who you are.

Jeep Rubicon
My new Rubicon almost immediately destroyed my life - my wife, and oldest son were constantly trying to take it away from me. I broke down and bought a second Wrangler for them to fight over - a 2003 Sport. I bought my first Jeep back in 1977. They have sure come a long way since then. Both my Jeeps are hard tops - they are asy to remove and the heater and A/C both work better. Gas mileage is unjustifiably poor - the excuses don't cut it. My bigger, heavier Suburban with a much bigger engine gets better mileage than either one of the Jeeps and there is nothing aerodynamic about a Suburban. Expect 15-17 TOPS!

By Wiz OIIIIIIIO on April 3 @ 3:00 am
Had Vette convertibles for many years, and the Ruby is just as much fun to drive. Jeeps and Vettes both have the "wave". Can go many places offroad in 2wd, that in other vehicles you would need to be in 4wd. Just a FUN vehicle.

By rtg77 on June 20 @ 3:00 am

Traded in my '92 4-cyl YJ. Talk about an upgrade! This thing is sweet! Everything is improved. Much smoother and quieter ride compared to my old leaf-sprung YJ. The interior is quite comfortable. Definitely go for the dual top option and full doors; well worth it.

best jeep ever made
I have owned many jeeps including, cj 5, cj7, scramblers and a wrangler. the rubicon is by far the best of all. coil springs improve the ride over the earlier models.I got the upgraded sound system, which is great. the ride on the street and off road is better then any jeep i have ever driven. The rubicon is worth ever penny.

Stuck with a Lemon
Would be fun to drive if I could get it to shift properly. I've been driving standard shift vehicles for 36 years. I've been getting a Loud "clink" when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear and from 2nd to 3rd gears. The service tech at the dealership told me that Chrysler changed transmissions in the 2003 & 2004 Jeeps. That they can not be fixed becase they all do it. It certainly takes the enjoyment out of driving it.

By jetmec9 on May 16 @ 3:00 am
rubicon's got some problems
i'm having transfer case problems at 451 miles out of the dealer. aft drive shaft, and speed sensor seal. been waiting a week to get the parts. i've read several reviews with the same problem. havn't even taken it off road yet, just to and from work. t case was nearly out of fluid, jeep won't replace it, that's great customer service for ya. i can only hope this is the last time i have problems, or i'll just let that t case leak all the way down until it burns up, then they'll be getting me one.

Love my Rubi
I recently purchased a 2004 Rubicon and have been pleasantly surprised with its performance and comfort. I had purchased a 98 Wrangler SE new for my son 6 years ago, and he still is in love with it. It doesn't look at all like the jeep we bought, due to all the excellent upgrades that are available. But it has been trouble free, so I expect the same out of the Rubicon. The difference between the 4.0 litre and the 2.4 is big in performance and smoothness. The Rubicon also is a much more comfortable ride with the Quadracoil and gas shocks, and generally has pretty good road manners.

Wrangler Rubicon: Built for Offroad Use
Overall the vehicle has performed in an outstanding fashion. The Rubicon is really designed for off-road use. It performs extremely well over difficult terrain. It has excellent ground clearance and does not require a lift for most off-road uses. It comes standardard with Goodyear MT tires that afford excellent traction. The 4:1 low range gearing permits this vehicle to attack a 60 degree incline without wheel slippage. The locking front and rear differentials permit travel in the most difficult terrains.

By GPatton on October 19 @ 3:00 am
Just Fun!
If you are looking for a soccer mom, smooth riding, quiet Caddy type, then look somewhere else. This is a Jeep! Designed for severe off-road. It's noisy, some-what bumpy and no frills. But BOY IS IT FUN! Used to driving a high-profile car? Then you'll have no problem adapting to Jeep handling. Drag your butt on the pavement in a sports car? Practice with a van in wind first. Noise is wind noise, not road noise. You'll love it!!

By Dpiero on January 5 @ 3:00 am
i love it
this jeep was fun to drive I was hit head on in this jeep and walked away with littel injurys the jeep was unfixable and i purchased another one you cant beat that its fun to drive

My Third Wrangler
This is my third Wrangler. I recommend this vehicle to anyone who needs a real four wheel drive that can go anywhere and maneuver in the worst traffic immaginable. I work in Mexico and drive regularly on and off of some of the world's most terrible roads. I have great faith in my Jeep to get me in and more importantly out, of of the places I need to go. Buy this vehicle if you want a reliable four wheel drive that gives you comfort when it is dark, raining and you are in ten inches of mud in the middle of nowhere. Don't buy it if your version of comfort is leather and a quiet ride.

By Ron Billib on October 1 @ 3:00 am
Lousy gas mileage
Bought the vehicle new. First fill-up got 18mpg. 2nd fill-up 16mpg. 3rd fill- up 14mpg. 4th fillup 12mpg. After that, between 11 and 12 mpg. Driving conditions same throughout. Received all sorts of excuses for poor mileage from 3 different dealers. Only vehicle I've ever driven that slows down when put in neutral going down hill. Traded it off after a year. Based on performance (lousy gas mileage) and dealerships unable or unwilling to correct whatever the problem was, would never purchase another Jeep product.

It's a toy thing. '97 Sport 4.0L Manual
I love my Jeep, unfortunately my wife hates it. That's the story of life. Cars are a bad investment, but a Jeep is different. It can get you or others out of sticky situations, and as far as an SUV nothing could be more fun to drive. It's just not for everybody. Don't speed or race around in it, even though they try to make the new ones feel like cars, they are far from it, and they should stay that way. Make sure you can trust your mechanic, I found that mine had been running with no transmission fluid for 3 years, when I checked the fluid level myself, and the mechanic who filled it up for me forgot to secure the skidplate to the tranny. These people....

My New Jeep Review
I just bought this in Florida and drove it up to NY. It drove like a champ. I love this Jeep. I have alot of improvement suggestions below, which might make you think I hate it, but I don't. It's fun to drive. It's good looking. It's cool. It's practicle if you live in the snowy section of this world. And the other day, a woman waved at me. Go figure? Maybe woman really do like Jeeps. Plus, next to a dog, it really is a man's favorite plaything. (not including woman, of course) ;)

Poor Quality Costs the company
The Jeep Wrangler has been the icon vehicle since its introduction in WW2. My first experience as a Jeep owner has been a bad one. The manual trans is hard to shift and pops out of gear constantly. It also occationally wont shift into a gear for whatever reason. I took mine to a dealer 4 times and Jeep "can find a problem". I also have the dual top version. Believe it or not the Hard top leaks worse than the soft top in a car wash. I was actually told by Jeep that "convertables leak" and I shouldn't go through car washes. I have had several convertables, and the Wrangler leaks like there is a window open.

By hoy13 on December 19 @ 11:00 am
Fun to drive. Goes over just about anything. Noisy on interstate.

By Alexthejeep on September 15 @ 11:00 am
Worth every dollar!
If you want to have FUN driving a vehicle with a relatively low cost, this is your vehicle! Forget all the luxuries, they don't really make a difference. This vehicle is RELIABLE, and can take a pounding, but with some XTRA care, they clean up beautifully! You will never be bored driving it!!!

By bomberfive on June 11 @ 11:00 am
04 Wrangler
Remember what this vehicle was / and is designed for. Fuel economy (for a 4 X 4) is excellent. Well built and will last a long time. Anything you do not like about the original vehicle, can easily be changed with after market parts.

By JMellott on June 11 @ 11:00 am
This jeep rocks!
I'm a first time jeep buyer who will always own a jeep from now on. I moved from sunny Los Angeles to snowy Washington state shortly after buying my Rubicon last Fall, and I'm sure glad I bought it. Minus 18 degree weather and 12 inches of snow were no problem...it just made for some fun driving!

Beyond expectation
I test drove the wrangler X 5 speed and found it to be civilized enough as a daily driver. Driving this jeep here in Southern Ca., I noticed that other jeep owners would wave at me, this is neat, and the classic round headlights make the Wrangler look real classy. The new heavy duty 5 speed manual transmission feels quite substantial ( a little industrial grade), and the clutch is nice and light for this vehicle. The biggest surprise for me, which is beyond expectation is the fuel economy. I get 19 mpg on a 35 mile round trip on mixed highway / city drive with speeds less than 65 mph.

By badness on October 9 @ 11:00 am
Do Not Buy!!!
Do not buy a Jeep Wrangler! Most importantly, do not buy an X model with half doors! Especially do not buy one in silver with black soft top! And do not even think of buying the Columbia Edition! It's all mine and you can't have any! You would be happier with an SUV of some sort (it's a jeep thing).

By RockportRubicon on July 6 @ 11:00 am
Jeep Rubicon
Surprisingly quiet, smooth ride in a rugged vehicle-an improvement over my old Wrangler Sport-only highway moise is the big treaded tires. Good, basic tried and true vehicle. Excellent off road capabilities-probably hte best stock vehicle ever built for orr-road, but not a bad daily driver, either. A little difficult to get kids in back with only one lifting seat, but otherwise fine. Lots of cuhy refinements over prior models.

By claudia ridge on April 1 @ 11:00 am
First Jeep Purchase
A very pleasant experience. All sales reps had jeeps and were very knowledgable of the product. Very satified with the ride-even up to 60 miles per hour. Price ended up at $21,800. I love my jeep!

By jason D on September 22 @ 11:00 am
Wrangler=Fun Machine
The wrangler is the ultimate fun machine. As well as the ultimate build machine!!!! Its the most bolt on vehicle available!!!! I recomend the X for anyone thats goiing to use it as a daily driver-a rock crawler build up. Come on its $6000 less than the rubicon!!!!

By hannahbelle on June 18 @ 11:00 am
I love my Jeep Wrangler
I love my Jeep, Yes it is noisy expect that, but I am a sales rep so I dont have alot of passengers. If you are looking for the Jeep that is a smooth quiet ride the wrangler is not a good choice---I have had a Jeep Wrangler for the last 6 years and love it. This is a very fun car and very safe...I had an accident with a brand new lexus, $47,000 in damage to their car and I think $6,000 damage to my Jeep.

By cernuto on December 9 @ 11:00 am
Jeep X
I am very satisfied with the performance of the Wrangler. It is certainly a Spartan vehicle and is designed with the intention of off highway usuage. However I would not recommend it as the primary mode of transportation for someone who routinely travels more than 50 miles from home.

By capthowdy on September 4 @ 11:00 am

I love the way this drives on the highway. And it is a lot smoother than the Rubicon on the road. Just would like better gas mileage.

bring back the islander
This is my second wrangler, had a '90 Islander previously. No other vehicle is as versatile or fun to drive, especially summertime with doors off. Perfect for carrying my boards to the beach. this vehicle is not for everyone though, I commute 90 miles a day in it, wind is loud on the highway when I have the soft doors on. Gas mileage isn't that bad, I get close to 20mpg.

By Speedfiend66 on February 8 @ 11:00 am
It is certainly not a Honda!!
You can't beat all the offroad options rolled into a low interest loan. Beefy transfercase, differentials, lockers F/R, and still have LSlip for everyday driving and fuel economy. This is the Jeep of Jeeps, don't let anyone tell you different. Building an older Jeep will not be as this turn-key beast.

By vivalafleur on July 31 @ 11:00 am
No Frills About It
The Jeep Wrangler X is far from a luxury vehicle, and someone who is planning on purchasing one should know this. That said, there are few cars out there you will find more fun than a Jeep. Fuel economy isn't great, especially with larger tires and other off-road upgrades, however those who own Wranglers are usually a different breed of consumer, and the pleasure of having a Jeep of their own is worth more than any $2.00 a gallon gas guzzler. Overall a fun car, and I think everyone should have one, at one time or another.

By cute jeeper on January 21 @ 11:00 am
Jeep Love
I personally love my jeep because i can go anywhere and do anything in it. Yes the ride isnt like a Mercades but its fun and cool. This is my second time owning a jeep and i have to say that no matter what this will be my choice of vehile for the rest of my life.

Great Vehicle. Used to drive only Toyotas, but found them expensive to repair, insure and drive that I decided to switch to an American Make. Am an avid outdoorsman and found the Toyota to be less capable of handeling the outdoors, the Jeep handles anything you throuw at it. Best buy I have made to date.

By Kegger on July 14 @ 11:00 am
New Unlimited
I have just finished the break-in period (300 miles) and it definetly seems quieter and smoother than the standard wrangler. The gas mileage is going to be hard to get use to since my last ride was a 4 cyl Ford Ranger. I opted with only the 4 speakers instead of 7 and I'm satisfied with the sound. It is a fun ride and I'm enjoying it tremendously. I will write an update after more time on and off the road.

By pigpants on April 9 @ 11:00 am
love this thang
You can't kill it and you can't hurt it. It is a go-anywhere-anytime vehicle and it never complains. If it rains and the top is down so it fills up with a few inches of water, just pull the plug, let the water out, then go on about your business.

By lvd on September 30 @ 11:00 am

04 Sport 5-speed
Positives. I've never owned a convertable and you CAN NOT beat going topless in a Wrangler. It zips around town with ease once you get used to it being a bit bumpy. I've yet to take it off-road so I can't comment on it just yet. Negatives. I drive about 80 miles (90% e-way) a day and this is my only vehicle. Now, I'm pretty rugged and outdoorsy but this isn't a e-way car. They tend to be blown around quite a bit and seem to get a bit squirlie above 65-70mph. I've also got issues with the tranny. When the vehicle is running and the tranny is in neutral it sounds like a couple marbles rolling around. The tranny is also clunky and doesn't shift smoothly.

By purrfectlaura on September 12 @ 11:00 am
Shop around
I love my Jeep. The Khaki is awsome! LOve the ride. HATE the gas eco. what are they thinking. MOST OF ALL shop around and be picky. South Point in AUSTIN is not the place to buy, they are very sneaky and try to ri[p you off at every angle. I have lots of car buying experience being an auto buying and they were a great challange for me. But the Jeep itsself is great. Go with hard top the soft tops rot pretty quick and are noisey. Besides the hard top you can take off and throw on a bikini top.

By Sergant on August 25 @ 11:00 am
3rd Jeep
This is my third Jeep I started with an 1979 CJ7. So far the new Jeep has lived up to it's reputation. It's definitley more comfortable and it seems a tad bit smaller also. My 17 YOA daughter has fallen in love with it and now wants one of her own. So far it's been great but the real test will be this coming November during deer season

By smaherali on May 21 @ 11:00 am
Awesome to drive
A fun and exciting ride! Not really a family car but for driving pleasure,it is so awesome. The power, the handeling, and the feeling of a jeep is so unique that it is beyon words.

By bobsanfran on February 15 @ 11:00 am
nice car- but mine keeps breaking down.
I love my 1998 Sahara Wrangler but after 66,000 miles it lives in the shop now. Every 10,000 miles - some thing breaks. 66,000 miles the Radator broke 70,000 the AC compressor siezed 74,000 the Exaust manafold craked 80,000 the clutch unit and other transmission parts needed to be replaced 90,100 - in the shop again - the computer is broken - they are trying to see what broke it.

Great car...
I recently purchased a jeep wrangler, and its definitely the most fun car I have ever driven. The manual 6 cyl has lots of power, great pickup, and the ride is smooth. It sits high above the road, so you see pretty much everything. The only bad part about the jeep is that the ride can be a bit noisy, and unless you buy it new, its difficult to find a decently priced wrangler with air conditioning. All of these negatives are easily overshadowed by the positives of the car.

First Jeep!
This is my first Jeep. I remember driving a 1983 CJ -7 and this Unlimited blows it a away. The ride is shall I say "Tons Smoother" than the old Jeeps. I traded my Toyota Tundra in on this vehicle and have not regretted it. I was used to the Toyota build quailty and was not dissapointed with this Jeep. Yes, it doesn't have the same creature comforts as my Tundra, but for a Jeep, I impressed! Arranged the whole deal over the Internet with the dealer and it was painless. Does pay to shop around and play the other dealers against each other.

By P. J. on March 11 @ 11:00 am
I can't believe I finally did it!
I have a buddy who has a Sahara and I loved to drive it. I had talked about getting a Jeep for over a year. Well, my car died and I finally did it. I wanted the Sahara, but they didn't have any on the lot, so I got the X with added A/C, tinted rear windows & upgraded wheels/sound bar. I live in New Orleans, so the ride on the streets can be a little bumpy, but it is a blast to drive! If you've ever thought about it . . . Just do it!!

By Jeep Fan on December 6 @ 11:00 am
Nothing better than a Jeep
This is my third Wrangler I've owned. By far, it is one of the most fun vehicles produced today. Top off in the summer, 4WD in the winter. Fuel economy is terrible, but you can't expect much out of a tank with a tent. New top design has made it one of the quietest Wranglers yet.

Go Anywhere
Besides my 04 Rubicon I also have a 2000 Sport 5m. Both have dual tops. The 2000 gets 17 mpg the Rubicon gets 12 MPG. I drive both the same. It's time to bring out the turbo diesel 4 cyl and see what it can do. Don't get me wrong I would buy it again. But like others my 3/4 ton chevy 4X4 gets 17 mpg. I am headed to Moab next week I'll see how it holds up.

By MicheleS on May 11 @ 11:00 am
Always wanted 1, Glad held out for this
When I purchased my Jeep everyone worried I would suffer from buyers remorse since it was such a big change from my Honda Civic EX 4 door. I love this car and can't wait to go driving in it. It handles much better then any Jeep I have ever driven and I still smile when I get behind the wheel. I wouldn't trade it in for anything.

By djd on April 23 @ 11:00 am
Very high build quality & fun to drive
This is my fourth Jeep and the build quality is far better than my last three Jeeps. There were no factory defects at all. The engine is very powerful and smooth running. The ride is far smoother and quieter than I expected with those knobby tires (although not car-like). The 4-wheel- drive system is unstoppable. My only suggestions are; get the hard top as the soft top is very difficult to install / remove & note that the "gray" interior is really black (very hard to keep clean). I could not be more pleased with this Jeep.

By Unlimited Rules on July 10 @ 11:00 am
Love It
This Unlimited rides TONS better than my old 1997 Wrangler when it was stock. After I saw the extra room, I had to have one. It is nice to be able to fit more than 4 paper sacks of groceries behind the seats. Overdrive is a nice improvemnt over the 3 Speed Auto. It seems to roll in corners less than my old stock '97 Wrangler did. Went through some windy roads near LaGrande, Washington and I was really impressed with the improvment in handling. Don't get me wrong, it is still a Jeep, but it is much better than my old one.

By SSG Casper on June 22 @ 11:00 am
Cheaper and as capable as a Hummer
Bought my Rubicon as a wedding gift to ourselves in 2002. Great wedding gift. It's a rough ride and truck like, the way Jeeps are meant to be. Never expected to ride like a BMW. Having many of the upgrades from the factory saved from trying to upgrade myself and messing it up or finding someone to do it right. In the Army for 14yrs, and taught soldiers how to drive Hummers and larger vehicles. I can say the Rubicon is as capable as Hummer. And at a lot lower cost. But never been to a Jamboree though. Looking forward to one after coming back form Iraq.

By funjeepguy on March 18 @ 11:00 am
I have had more fun with my Jeep Wrangler than any other car I have wned. I bought the solar yellow and it turns heads everwhere I go. I have the X model with the in line 6 cyl engine. I hve heard rummors that the in line 6 will be replaced with the v-6. i think that would be a mistake to to this.

By Stick on December 13 @ 11:00 am
This is a classic...
I use my Rubicon as both a daily driver AND a weekend off-roader. These guys have done their homework...this is destined to go down as one of the great Jeeps. The vehicle feels very solid, and is prepared to tackle any obstacle. It is a lot quieter than I expected, and the ride is smooth on the highway (for a Jeep). It is rugged and fun, and one of the few vehicles left that can be easily worked on...though I have yet to have any problems at 3000 miles. I have NEVER enjoyed a vehicle this much. If you want soft fuzzy comfort, go buy a Mercedes. This is not for the latte-drinking suburban soccer moms. All meat, no fluff.

By Jhony on August 21 @ 11:00 am
Jeep Rubicon
this is an awesome car. Although, it is a bit loud with the soft top on at high speeds and the handling is pretty bad at high speeds as well. This car is very fun to drive on and off the road. Great for anyone.

By wvjeeper on August 21 @ 11:00 am
love it
This is my third jeep(cj then yj then tj) and they keep getting better. The ride is much improved and it is much quieter. Some people who complain about that are in the wrong vehicle-it is a rugged off-road vehicle after all. Of course the mileage is not great- no real 4-wheel drive vehicle gets high mileage. There is nothing like the wrangler on the road today. If you want a unique and fun vehicle, this is it.

By yawlhangon on August 4 @ 11:00 am
Stiff backs and Caddilacs
Because this was my 1st Jeep (congradualations) (thank you very much) I did a considerable amount of research before making the purchase And from all ive heard I expected to get in this thing and feel like I was laying on a bed of nails during earthquake A lot of people are really overdramatizing the supposable lack of comfort in a Jeep. I realize that its all in the eye (or back) of the beholder but these people must have back trouble or somthing. Sure it's no Buick Regal or Pontiac Bonneville but I don't see no call to exagerate. Sure it may not be as comfortable as a luxury sedan but it's certainly not uncomfotable. Jeep does a fine job.

By jaimie on January 24 @ 11:00 am

By teehan327 on July 17 @ 11:00 am
the rubicon rocks!!!
This is my second jeep wrangler, it is the best most capable off road vehicle I have ever owned(and I owned a lot). It is comfortable and reliable. The fuel economy isnt great for a jeep it is okay. The only downfall is the storage space, i had to add a safari rack to make up for lack of storage for camping. It is the best vehicle for someone who is going to use it for it's intended purpose(going off road).

By Austindude on April 13 @ 11:00 am
Too much fun!
The Unlimited is smooth and suprisingly quiet on the highway, The soft top is super quiet and provides a whole lot more options for taking the top off. I've been getting about 18.5 MPG average. I have read reviews that suggest this Jeep isn't for long trips, but I beg to differ. Other than gas mileage, this Jeep is as smooth as most any other SUV on the market. (with the soft top on and windows up)

By calucyk2 on January 8 @ 11:00 am
Best one of the bunch
This is my third Jeep; 1999, 2002 and now a 2004. This is by far the best one of the bunch! It rides much better and the sound deadening improvements are huge! I can't wait to test its off road capabilities.

By psnolte on October 4 @ 11:00 am
My 4th Jeep
This is my 4th Jeep. I tradeded in my '02 Cherokee Overland for a Rubicon. My CJs/Wranglers have been the most dependable vehicles I've owned. They're simple and easy to work on. As long as you know what your're getting into, I can't see how you'd be disappointed. The Rubicon is designed for off road use, although it rides fine on the highway. Because of the gearing, it's not the quickest horse out of the gate however. If you want more car like performance, choose a traditional Wrangler. One tip: always keep up with the drivetrain maintenance.

By VTer on June 30 @ 11:00 am
Take's Getting Used To
Haven't owned a Wrangler for several years so pleasantly surprised with improvements in drivability but a bit disappointed with the harsh ride, noise, and poor mileage. But then again - its a Wrangler! Best advice is to take an extra long test ride before you decide to buy. When we first took our Wrangler home my wife my wife got sick from the bopuncy ride. Now she can fall asleep on the highway - just takes getting used to it.

I LOVE this vehicle! I've been in Wranglers before, but NEVER one like this! This vehicle is DEFINATELY for the more adventurous driver. Would recommend it to ANYONE! I was in an accident, hit by another driver - her fault, and man did those tires survive a beating! The wheel fenders took the impact, saving me from being smashed in by my driver's side door. I believe the Rubi saved my life!

Overall is a great Jeep! I enjoy having the top and doors off during the summer. It's good on gas and has good power. The ride is very good for a jeep as many friends told me. It has great power and very good on gas. Great car for the outdoor type!

By correacr on June 12 @ 11:00 am
Love it. Gas is an issue at moment...only complaint

By Trogdor on March 9 @ 11:00 am
With out a doubt the best Jeep DC has ever turned out. Its offroad capabilities are insane. On road fuel economy becomes a problem especially b/c of the gearing but one cannot deny the fun factor in this car. In the interior space is at a premium and this car was definetly designed for two people. There is very few things you cannot do in this vehicle.

By DrATom on December 3 @ 11:00 am
Forget the other Wranglers
I always wanted one and finally did a month ago. Biggest reason for only getting a Wrangler now was that there was next to no room behind the back seat. Until the Unlimited came out, it made no sense for me to get rid off my reliable and fuel- economic little soft-top Tracker. The unlimited has lots of room, is much more comfortable than anyone says and the soft top is not that hard to handle, simply needs some time to get used to. Obviously you can't compare the handling of the soft top when you're used to pressing a button in your Sebring convert ... It pulls 3,500 pounds and has no trouble with my 1,800 pd boat trailer and affects fuel economy very little.

Too Much Fun
The Rubicon is everything I thought it would be, and more. It handles very well around town and thinks nothing of off-roading. Haven't had a chance to try the lockers out yet, but hopefully soon. Jeep has outdone themselves with the exterior styling of the Rubicon - between the Moab rims, diamond plate rocker guards and MTRs. The interior is simple, but attractive. I find the operation of the soft top to be quick and simple, despite what others say. My last vehicle was a '96 Cherokee Sport. The Rubicon, even with the soft top, is not much louder on the highway than the Cherokee was. The Rubicon is truly the essence of Jeep.

By Steph on December 3 @ 11:00 am
Great Jeep!
Wranglers are great for on and off road, and tons of fun. You can get a little uncomfortable on a long trip but I have only experienced this once (4 hours with no rest stops in the car) This is a very dependable truck, I have not had any major problems

By Shidia Wa Suda on August 29 @ 11:00 am
Nice Vehicle
Jeeps are the most enjoyable vehicles ever made, on the pavement, or off road. (preferably off-road) Myself ha had 3 Jeeps in my life and hadn't regreted a cent i spent on those Wranglers.

By firegoogs on August 29 @ 11:00 am
Jeep Wrangler Columbia Edition
I got my Jeep in January of 2004. It warmed up quickly and stayed warm despite sub-zero temperatures outside. I have not noticed any excessive noise associated with the soft top. It is louder than a hard top vehicle but it isn't annoying. Driving with the top down is a wonderful feeling. I love my Jeep!

Unlimited II
This is my 2nd Unlimited and my 4th Jeep. I love it. The 1st Unlimited met w/an untimely death by a drunk driver 5 days after i bought it. It was hit on the driver's side door and took quite a hit. It saved my life. I "only" suffered a lacerated spleen & 3 broken ribs. If I still had my old 1/2 doors on my Jeep I might not have been here to enjoy my 2nd Unlimited, which I have had for a month now. I have put 2000 miles on it, took a trip to Disney World (it had a great time), and found the tallest "hill" in Miami and took it. Once again, love it, saved my life once, love the extra room, it's what I always wanted in my Wrangler.

Great ride in the hills valleys and everywhere except freeways. Power could be increased with a little wider stance but over all the wrangler is the most agile responsive vehicle on the road.

Crappy American car is VERY FUN
i have always hated american cars. especially those made by chrysler, but this jeep has been very fun for offroading purposes. it gets poor gas mileage but if you only use it for offroading it is great.

By Naaaasty on February 19 @ 11:00 am
A dream come true!
For darn near forever we've wanted a REAL Jeep. I've had other 4X4's and an 85 4 Cyl Cherokee that was darn near impossible to destroy (other than self inflicted wounds). It took me everywhere I wanted to go and then some. Our Astro van had 0ver 200K on it and the wife said "Let's get me (meaning her)a Jeep". Eh....ok. Gave the van to the kids and we bought a Solar Yellow Rubicon, loaded. Wife went from Soccer Mom to "Who's yer Mommy?" Are we happy with it? Very much so! Her Jeep...MY payments and upkeep...But I did get to "Accesorize" it and I have weekend visitation rights!!! WOO HOO...I can live with that!

My first jeep
Just a few weeks ago I drove a jeep for the first time. I never considered one before because of hearing about how easy they were to tip over. Although after driving it I found that I felt just as safe in it as any other suv.

By Brian Peterson on November 15 @ 11:00 am
STOP & look @ this
Make special note to yourself when driving a Wrangler that the wheels are very prone to locking up on dry pavement. I've taken tactical driving courses & have driven everything from Police cruizers & armored trucks to Ambulances-However, my 2004 X model is still @ the body shop. (As embarrassing as it is) At 40mph the vehicle locked & slid one& a half car lengths on dry pavement.

By Fijiman on November 15 @ 11:00 am
Awesome Jeep for FUN
I had a Grand Cherokee and have exchanged the SUV version for the Wrangler ... It is awesome ... I was worried about the engine, but the 6cl does a great job... it's fun I've had it in mud and on the beached of NC's outer banks ... I've even towed a boat ... you'll love this vehicle

By Jeep Driver 777 on August 12 @ 11:00 am
Great performance & Fun to drive
Runs like a car, attractive interior desing, great performance. Not good in fuel economy.

By joe lo on October 29 @ 11:00 am
built jeep tough
i have always owned jeeps, they are great vehicals, they are very reliable, fun to drive, and the build quality is amazing. when you own a jeep you have the best of both worlds, fun in the summer time with the removable soft top and doors and in the winter time you have the trail rated 4wd system. they are very strong and reliable, i have jumped jeeps, taken them through trails that people wouldent wanna walk on and they handle everything great. as far as driving on the road they are pretty smooth at highway speeds, but tend to be bumpy on streets because of the straight axle setup that makes their 4wd system amazing.

By koolbreeze40 on April 20 @ 11:00 am
Still the same
As long as you understand its capabailities on road its no problem. Dont turn corners at a high speed or the tires will let you know. But take it to the woods or training area and smile from ear to ear. I have to purchase a winch because the mud holes that M1A1 Tanks leave are deep.

By X-Rated Wrangler on January 15 @ 11:00 am
The Hotness
Its such a fun and great Jeep compared to my older 90 Cherokee, plus its a drop top for the ladies to flock. Gas prices are rising so is the importance of fuel economy too...but that goes along with the territory of a Jeep. Its a great vehicle for the beach.

By Kerns6 on July 7 @ 11:00 am
My First
I've only had it for about three weeks and love it. I took it on a 1,000 mile round trip to the beach and it was great. Very quiet with the top and windows up. Great ride. Love the cruise control. The sunrider roof is the best. I get the open air feeling with out taking the whole thing off. It's great for the surprise thunderstorm. I would definitely recommend it as a first Jeep. My only complaint was that at highway speeds with just the driver's window cracked, the top rattled pretty loudly. I am hoping that some wind guards will help that.

By Codybravo on September 23 @ 11:00 am
Great little buggy
I love mine! It's a bit bouncy and conversing with a passenger at higher speeds can be tough, but it's ability to move from paved roads ot off road without missing a beat more than make up for it. I don't find the soft top the "nail breaker" Edmund claims. I can take the top down or put it up in less than 5 minutes. The Jeep is without a doubt just plain fun to drive, especially topless. I've read some info concerning poor handling on highways. I haven't had this problem, but the jeep wasn't intented as a family car. Best vehicle purchase I have ever made.

By biarritz84 on September 5 @ 11:00 am
Best Jeep Ever !!!
Went to dealership with my mother and we was going to purchase 2 of these new Unlimiteds, thought buying 2 of them we could get some kind of a deal...WRONG!! Salesman said the best I can do is sticker price so he lost 2 cash sales. I went to the Chevy dealer in the same auto mall and got a new Monte Carlo LS. My mother got her Unlimited and is very happy with it and I'm happy for her. I loved it myself but not that much.

Me and my Rubi....
I've had my silver/black Rubicon now for just two weeks, but so far the experience has been great. When comparing this to a '95 Wrangler Sport 4.0L that I owned, I've noticed night and day differences in some areas. The soundproofing from road noise is much better! Interior comfort level is vastly better. The Sound System is HUGELY better (7 speaker system in the new one). The biggest difference, in a negative light, is that my new Rubicon is a Dog... I've got the 4.0L Inline 6, with the 5 speed manual tranny, and it's not quick by any means (my '95 was better). Not to mention the terrible gas mileage. On a positive note, Dual Tops are Great!

By Alexis/Jeep lover on March 6 @ 11:00 am
There's only one...
This truck is the only one of it's kind.You cannot imagine how it is good in off-road situation,ITS AMAZING , I have beat Hummers for real... I've tried it to a jeep jamboree...you cannot believe what the Rubi can do if you have never see it.The tires are great.I had put the Mopar light bar on it and the night doesn't exist anymore! Very Very great in winter,I tried it in winter because I'm from Montreal. Great for hardcore camping and expedition.The only machine that can bring you anywhere,that is convertible and that it as cool as a Mustang Cabra.

By BIMMER323 on November 30 @ 11:00 am
This is my first Jeep ever. It's a black, soft-top Rocky Mountain edition. Sharp looking with big wheels and tires. Great package! It has great winter capabilities and is fun in the sun. This SUV has it all! It's our family toy. My three sons love it. Having an awsome time this summer. I can't wait to use it in the winter. Should have gotten one sooner. I also drive a 2003 745Li BMW; a great car but lacks the fun,free-spirited feeling you get from a Wrangler. You don't buy for it's creature comforts. It's a JEEP.... HAVE SOME FUN!

By rodick on November 13 @ 11:00 am
front end constantly shakes when on highway. every time you hit a bump or pot hole front end shakes viliontly. have had car in the shop twice and know body can find any thing wrong with the vehicle. at 40k shouldn't have any problems with a car that is built right.

By jetmyke on May 5 @ 11:00 am
My first Jeep
I really enjoy driving the Rubicon. It performs well for my daily commute and is civilized on the road, given it's off road capabilities. Off road this machine is absolutly top notch. I have taken it through the "Gap" in the Catalina Mountains outside of Tucson, a 4+ rated trail, and it pulled right through. The Rubicon climbed through the boulders like a goat, (the lockers are great), and had plenty of power for the steep ascents on rock faces. Wound up breaking a wheel, but that happens in the rocks. I forgot to air down the tires. I did add a winch, rock sliders, tube bumpers and a K & N air filter. Over all very satsified.

By Robert Fillion on May 5 @ 11:00 am
2003 rubicon review
I have changed the suspension system by lifting my jeep 2 1/2 inches with a rancho lift system. The stock suspension system was a hard ride and this lift heped soften it upas well as give more clearance for off roading, my intial purpose for this ride. I have not had any major problems with any systems on this vehicle. It has been a great ride both on and off road. I have been able go places that I would not go with anything less than a 4 wheel drive with locks could go.

By kepasa on January 30 @ 11:00 am
Timeless Machine
If you are looking for an all out performer in its class this is this vehichle for you! Excellent quality, decent ride quality in town & on the highway. Will go almost anywhere you point it offroad. It is an icon dating back to the original Willys.Soft top is adequate, but not that easy to put up.If your'e looking for a convertible with ease this is not it.

Awesome Jeep Gas Mileage
My gas mileage was a little low at first but then about 6000 miles I started watching my tachometer. I decided to keep it below 2000 when driving. Since I have been doing this my mileage as gone from 16.5 to 21.9 on the highway and from 14.5 to 17.5 in the city. I think this is awesome performance from my jeep wrangler. It's not for sale and won't be until I can afford another.

By dnferg on July 22 @ 11:00 am
Fun but unaffordable
The major problem with this vehicle is poor fuel economy.

By KenJeep1978 on July 22 @ 11:00 am
ADD 4" Skyjacker and 33" All Terrains
I've got a X and at 2500 miles I added a 4" Skyjacker lift with 33" tires. I have to say I do believe that is the best compatiblity for Jeep. Gears 1 through 4 are terrific but 5th struggles at high speeds. Just recently drove cross country and hardly saw 70. But that when I remind myself its a jeep. Can also easily tow 2700 pound boat with ease.

By ldmpam on April 17 @ 11:00 am
True Trail Ready Vehicle
The only reasonable priced serious off road vehicle that can be used as is for both street and trails with out concern. It is built tough and reliable, you can get an auto transmission and airconditing with cruse control. But the basic jeep has real tough drive train that you can get factory airlockers front & rear with a heavy duty transfer case and full 7 year 70k mile warrentee for worry free off/on road uses.

By reelynole on March 31 @ 11:00 am
Jeep Unlimited is great
This is the first Jeep Wrangler. I previously had Jeep Cherokees. Here in the Tampa Bay area we have been besieged by HURRICANES giving me the opportuntiy to tow about ten idiots out of flooded streets including a Honda CRV suv. I felt great about that. I easily tow my 2500 Lb. boat. I put the sunrider top down for a summer day. I love this vehicle. The car is quiet, comfortable and rock solid. I know the engine is reliable. I put 200,000 miles on two cherokees and the Wrangler has the same in line 6 cylinder engine. You cannot go wrong with this rig.

I traded my 2002 wrangler for the new 2004 electric lime. Jeeps handle the best than any suv/4wd that I have driven and there have been alot. You have the security and fun of the 4wd and the drop top. I will own nothing but a Jeep Wrangler!

By Neophyte on September 28 @ 11:00 am
Too much FUN!
Awesome fun factor, but better as a second or third vehicle. It's unbeatable off road, but if you are considering all the car-like SUV's, remember that Wrangler is made with ONE purpose in mind: Off-road.

The keeper
This is my 14th jeep. CJs, TJs, Cheerokees have all been in my stable at one time or another. Jeep has finally made the perfect vehicle for me. Quieter, relatively spacious and with the same potential as short wheelbase TJs. I currently own a built 1985 CJ7, and after test driving the Unlimited on a whim, I bought one two weeks later. Upsides: Storage, potential, comfort (except for the seats) Downsides: Seats still suck, soft top is a pain to put up and down by yourself.

"You Have to drive one"
I always wanted a Jeep- For one they keep the same style so the residual value remains high - and for two they are the BEST looking vehicles on the road-Only people with style can adapt to the flawless unchanged styling of the Jeep-I owned mine now for approx:3 months I have about 5000 miles on it I use it for every day use approx 50 miles per day and I love it-A good solid ride and a good sound system if you purchase the sound package-I took it off roading in NH and handled some obstacles with out any worries then I drove home 210 miles in comfort-What other vehicle can conquer cliffs in the deep woods then get on the road and drive in comfort and style-If you are thinking about buying buy!

By eatjeep on November 23 @ 7:06 pm
Room for a weekend trip without a top rack, can't wait for the aftermarket to catch up. Removable rear seat is a snap. I wish the hard top was easier to take off (heavy). I'm hooked, and I'm keeping this baby.

By Pete on March 8 @ 11:03 am
Great fun, 4cyl grossly underpowered
The Wrangler SE is loads of fun to own and drive. However, the 4cyl motor is grossly underpowered. Lags very badly on the steep California hills with an empty cargo. Fuel mileage should be much better for a 4cyl. I average about 15.7 mpg with the top down and 17.9 with the top on.

By Ray Miller on November 16 @ 6:16 am
It's a JEEP
I have owned 18 jeeps from the CJ3 to Cherokees, Grand Cherokees and this is the best yet! I knew from past experience that a Wrangler is a Jeep as far as ride and design. Still I love the Rubi!! Auto transmission is the best yet. Gearing is super. It is the peppiest yet. "NOW THE BAD" My biggest complaint is the darn pinging. Jeep says thatÂ’s the way it is, live with it! And use 89 octane when the book says runs on 87. Got no help trying to fix this problem after 4 trips to 2 different dealerships.

By DAC on June 7 @ 6:43 pm
Great Multupurpose Vehicle
I have owned other Jeeps but this was my first Wrangler. I promised my wife a convertible some day and she loves the Jeep. Great purchase. It is not the most comfortable ride for long highway drives but it is acceptable. It is hard to get the kids in their car seats. The fuel economy is not what it should be based upon existing technology. IT IS a fun vehicle, and a great short distance commuter. It handles the back roads and off-roads with equal ability. If you're afraid to get a scratch on it buy a Lexus and stay on the highway. IF you want a ride for bad weather, hunting conditions, and off-roading recreation...the Wrangler is a good fit.

By vwnb99 on July 27 @ 6:56 pm
Rubi Red is Fun... a great Jeep
The Jeep is a blast. Rides much better than my 1990 SE. I am happy with the purchase, use it mostly to go to and from work (live in the country) and off road now and then. The ride is a bit jittery on secondary roads and require me to hold onto the wheel tight. The driving position is very uncomfortable. My left arm gets tired holding the wheel and I feel boxed in with the door right on my shoulder. The loop door handle is useless. The gas mileage is horrible (14.36 average), the 5 speed shifts like a old farm tractor. In 2nd to 3rd gear the motor is guttless. The 7 speaker stereo system is poor. But even with all these little annoyances, the RUBI is a blast to drive.

I love this Jeep! I had my first Jeep back in 1994 and it was an 86' Islander bright yellow. I loved it. Went back to driving cars and realized Jeep is the only one for me. So now I have the new 2004 Unlimited and it is awesome. Girl's like Jeeps too.

By DAC on June 13 @ 1:20 am
You get it all in the Rubicon
I traded a Wrangler Sport for my Rubicon. I found that the Rubicon would go where the Sport would only try to go ...without adding a lift, tires, and lockers. This Rubicon is simply a better stock Jeep. It has the same great features as the Sport such as the covertible top, ease in parking, and fun driving. In addition, I found that it will go off- road where the Sport could only dream of going with the Rubicon's stock front and rear lockers, 16' wheel set, and the additional lift to accomodate the 31' wheels. This Rubicon is truly the Jeep that I would expect all Jeeps to be.

Wrangler X
This is one type of car/truck/SUV that everyone wants. We have owned sports cars, trucks and minivans but I have always wanted a Wrangler. This is the most fun you can have in anything out there. We live in NE Ohio about 60 miles south of Lake Erie. Just last week it was 72 degrees on a Friday and 10 inches of snow on Sunday morning. Our Wrangler has handled everything our weather has thrown at us. From winter snows to the top down fun in the summer; you just can't find that in any other SUV.

By William Weaver on January 28 @ 11:13 am
William's Jeep
I have been very satisfied overall with this vehicle. It is fun to drive, and having the 4WD available, though I have yet to use it, gives me piece of mind. I gave it a 9 for comfort due to the lack of a door arm rest, which really is not a problem as the center console is there. I gave it a 6 for fuel economy because its 15-19 mpg is reminiscent of the 80's era vehicles. It has had, as yet, no mechanical or body work though I do intend to add the tow bar, which I think should be standard given the lack of trunk space with passengers aboard. While I think I will never part with it, I am also pleased with the TMV and resale value.

By BRIANW710 on August 12 @ 4:40 am
Poorer quality compared to 2003
After less than 150 miles the rear brakes were making a metal to metal grinding noise. When I took it back to the dealer the service manager said, "It was driven with the parking brake on" (exact words). And the mechanic said, "Well, I prepped it and I didn't have the brake on." WHAT DO THEY THINK I AM? AN IDIOT? They had to order the replacement brake pads. When I returned the new pads were defective! Talk about standing behind your product. Not very good on poor highways. Had the tires knocked out of balanced twice within 1000 miles. I'm actually discouraged by my treatment by the service people. And I'm looking to get rid of it.

By JEEP4LIFE on February 9 @ 5:56 pm
They still make Jeeps like they used to.
Jeep Wranglers rule! I bought my '04 Sahara a month ago, and it is incredible. The only 4X4 that I could find that wasn't made mostly of plastic. They cut all the gadgets and gizmos. I knew going into it that 16-18MPG would be normal, so I can't complain. The engine is powerful, stock suspension is very capable on trails. I found it interesting that people said the freeway drive is too bouncy and noisy. With the hard top on, it is just as quiet as my wife's Integra, the soft top isn't bad either. It is very smooth on freeways. Yeah, when you hit bumps on smaller roads,you do bounce a little, but it is a Jeep! Take it off-roading and you will see what I mean.

Coast-to-Coast Jeep
I have driven this Jeep from Oregon to North Carolina, spent a year here running it through some of the most horrible mud in the country, endless standing water, and narrow ATV trails, drifting it sideways across sandy plains and jumping it with 8 total passengers. I have caked it inside and out, had muddy water pour into the dash, killed the motor with the exhaust 6 inches below the water line, winched and pulled full-size Bronco's and Dodge Ram's, and next week I will confidently drive it on my return trip to Oregon, this time pulling a trailer.

By Randi on February 4 @ 8:50 am
Better Get Ear Plugs...
This is a very competent vehicle, for off-roading, but as a daily driver it leaves much to be desired. The Goodyear MTR tires howl like a lonely dog wishing for the moon. The wind noise is certainly there, but you wouldn't know thanks to the tires. You also need to choose your back seat passengers with care, as they may need to be extra nimble to get in and out. The performance is lack luster at best, with the engine attempting to lug around 3700+ pounds, which also offsets any hope of reasonable gas mileage. It will get down and dirty in the off road enviorment, but other than that, you should have limited expectations.

By Matt on February 16 @ 7:13 am
Why We Divorced our Jeep
My wife and I greatly enjoyed driving this vehicle - however, it was truly a Love-Hate relationship. Over the period of 18 months, we had this Jeep back to the dealership for steering column thud over bumps (fixed, but not until after they replaced portions of the rear suspension), clutch master cylinder failure making smooth starts impossible (fixed), water leaks from hood hinges (could not duplicate problem - not fixed) and two trips to attempt correction of "pre-ignition" (first time fixed, second time told to take to another dealer). Although we did enjoy our Jeep, we knew with only 18 months of ownership that we would never keep it past its warranty expiration.

By brdhntr on August 20 @ 5:23 pm
This is a highly capable off road vehicle that takes command of the situation. The ride and handling characteristics are what one should expect of a true off road vehicle. This vehicle is highly impractical for anything other than fun. But fun is what I bought it for!

By Jeff D. on June 4 @ 6:26 pm
It's the Genuine Article
My first GP, a 2004 Jeep Wrangler SE 4 cylinder, 4WD, with soft top and hard doors, has been reliable, versatile, and just plain fun. It's a blast for all seasons ... goes anywhere in the snow (though ice is always tricky) ... doesn't leak in the heaviest of rain ... pulls my 16 ft. boat up a bumpy ramp with ease (especially using 1st gear in 4WD low )... and doesn't need air conditioning (just take the windows out on a hot day or lower the top). However, I do suggest that you keep both hands on the wheel in windy and rainy conditions because of the short wheelbase and wider tires. There's plenty of heat in winter and you can adjust the vents to cover your needs. It has comfortable seats too.

I loved the feeling of freedom with the Safari top in the summer and the warmth and security of the hardtop in the winter. I like putting my camping gear in the back and heading off to the back country in search of my Shangri La. I love the feeling of power driving through the loose sands of the Great Sand Dunes National Park and locking the Dana 44s when the going gets tough. Apparently someone else liked my Rubicon as well, because they hijacked it from my drive Wed. night. It feels like my best friend is lost. I want my Rubi back!

Why'd I Wait So Long?
I love my Jeep. I bought it in June 2005 with only 6k miles. So far I'm at 15k with no problems so far. Road manners are much better than I ever expected. Not nearly as loud as I thought it would be, especially with the hard top on. Not the most roomy and practical vehicle on the planet but then again who buys a Wrangler for space, fuel economy, or practicality. It's a lot of fun to drive & customization options are endless with all the aftermarket items available for Jeeps.

One Bad Mud Machine
Great stock but better with 4 inch suspension lift, 6 KC lights, and 33X12.50 mud terrains. We bought it used with 2,000 miles on it. Use it everyday and even in mud holes on the weekends. Once we get a "family" SUV we're going to keep adding on. It's a Jeep thing, some people will never really understand.

Fun Weekends, horrible daily driver.
It's nice to go off roading, but it gets old quick, and I bought a second vehicle because it is simply impossible to live with on a daily basis. The MANUAL tranny had a factory defect and needed replaced ... all while the dealer took 3 weeks and provided no rental car, so I spent my Christmas and New Years with a $426 payment and no car! The vehicle had a fender bender too, and never ran right since, despite being fixed 3 times more. My driveshaft parts are very rusty, even though I live in one of the driest deserts on earth! The constant vibration on the freeway is the true reason I am trading this vehicle in, despite the loss I'll take. If you really want one, save $$$, buy used!

If you love Jeeps...
I've almost always owned one Jeep or another and currently own 2. If you're tired of dumping huge amounts of money into building a capable off-roader, get yourself into a Rubicon. I'll be starting with a Rubicon as a base for building from here on out because you just can't build a more serious off-road vehicle for the money. Buy one and drive it from the dealership directly to the nearest (and most extreme) trail and have fun knowing you'll go anywhere! I love my '04 more than any Jeep I've built (including a '59, '76 and an '88). The seats need lower lumbar support but it's more comfortable by far than it's predecessors. Save your "build-up" cash for something else - buy a Rubicon instead.

2004 Rubicon
Love the Jeep and dual top group, easy to work on and with the lockers this thing will go anywhere. Lifted it up 6" and added some 35" tires. The new suspension lift actually makes it ride better than stock. The Rubicon is the model to buy. Love the 7 speaker sound system.

Jeep Owner X3
This is the 2nd Jeep Wrangler I have owned. The 1st was a 97 Wrangler Sahara which I gave to my son. I purchased the 04 Rubicon because it had a 5 speed. Other than a little rougher ride than the Sahara, I am totally blown away by the Rubicon. The thing people need to know about a Jeep is that it is a real SUV. If you're looking for the smooth quiet ride, it's not for you. If you want a real 4x4 capable of going anywhere, built in the USA, that holds resale value, and is a blast to drive; this is it. The wife drives an 03 Liberty Ltd, so when we need 4 doors and have a passenger or two we use it. Like they say; "It's a Jeep thing...."

Unlimited Offroad
My third Jeep without a single problem. The offroad capabilities are second to none. I drive on black diamond trails. The trails only a Jeep can handle. The Unlimited Wrangler has a smooth ride and handles well on the road. I would recommend to anyone.

I have loved all of mine
If you are looking for a car that is great on gas, silent, & not bumpy then pass on the Wrangler. If you like to have fun, get through almost anything & have a blast doing so then this is the one for you! I am a female & do not find it difficult to get the soft top on or off. Have not had a hard time with it in any sort of commuting. Easy to travel in also. Have taken it up & down the East Coast.
