Pros: Top-less motoring
Cons: Engine performance
Advice: Buy the model that fits your eye, but be ready to put a few minor aftermarket parts under the hood. Fortunately, they're cheap!The car is fun, good-looking and obviously rugged in its capabilities. It is the only 4-door convertible on the market and as such, has no peers. If you are shopping other 4x4's, you have lots of very good choices. If you are shopping for off-road, open-top(or top-less in this case), then you will be buying a Jeep. Ride is pretty good, even for a Jeep. The long wheel-base is what sets this apart from its predecessors. The drive-train is the only let-down in my opinion. The motor is a dog. It has been carried over from the mini-van and as such is not intended to be a stellar component of the package. I think they hurt themselves by not offering a premium package here.
Pros: 4 WD
Cons: 4 WD
Advice: Don't buy from Hemet Chrysler Center in HemetBought a lemon from Hemet Chrysler and they won't honor the buy back or replacement. They have one thing and one thing ONLY in mind to take you for everything they can then spit you out on the street and laugh at you. Don't be suckered....trust me, not them they will screw you over.
Pros: Looks, build quality, 4 wheel drive
Cons: Head rest, no power mirror.
Advice: I don't feel you can get anything better for the money.This is my first Jeep..and I love it. On the highway it drives like a car (a bit noisier)but pretty smooth. I have had a chance to put it in 4 wheel drive in the snow and what I love is the feeling that it gives you. You know its in 4 wheel drive and it tracks strait and true. I cant wait for the spring and my first off road trip.
