Give Up...To Get ...?
Pros: Towability and Tow Rating (5K#)
Cons: Stop and go performance is not smooth.Drive train and accelerator are bothersome especially when maneuvering in tight places. Push on gas, revs up, lurches forward in drive, back in reverse. Plenty or room and comfortable. Great looks and a good value. Tows great behind RV and could tow a 5k trailer.
Pros: Rear fold down seats
Cons: Windows, AC, finish
Advice: Keep looking!The AC is terrible! It constantly changes temp and the dealership is no help at all. I have had it in three times and no change. The drive side window is constantly coming off track and again, the dealership has no idea why. I was considering an Xeterra and I wish I had spent a little more and gotten a reliable automobile.
Cons: the whole car
Advice: dont buydrives like a jeep. has a lot of power for a vehicle of its size. although i had transmission problems from the beginning it was in the shop 4 times each time for at least 2 weeks or more. i went to several jeep dealers and got the same customer service, rude arrogant and unhelpfull. i was told it needed a transmission tuneup and had to pay 300.00 when i had a warranty only to find out that the transmission was still bad. dont buy this car or any other chrysler product they dont stand behind there productsand after you buy it they dont care about you. also my dashboard went out and they fixed it but they broke the lights on the shifter somehow and wanted me to pay. stay away from these crooks.
Pros: 4 Doors
Cons: Three Piece Top
Advice: Beware of the Three Piece TopIgnore the trim selection I made, Autobytel does not have the 2007 Wrangler Trim available for selection and that is what I am critiquing below. Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had my new 2007 Jeep Wrangler for two days. It rained each of those days and the new three piece top leaked! Took it to Manhattan Jeep,Dodge and Chrysler Dealer and after two and a half hours of work they made the problem worse! It started leaking again even more this time! I am taking the Jeep back to the dealer for more work on the three piece top. My dream car has turned into a nightmare. I should have remained loyal to Toyota! As far as the drive and ride, it feels like a car. It does not bounce all over the place which is very good on the streets on New York. If you still plan to purchase the jeep I also recommend spending the extra money for the upgraded audio system. The standard sucks! It does not have a lot of base if that is what you like. P.S. Accessories are not out yet for the 2007 model. I was told they will be available in December.
