Overall, a pleasant car. Drives well, with the V-6 engine the power is more than adequate and the fuel economy is excellent. The transmission is the odd part of the performance picture. It has nine speeds, but it sometimes feels like it cannot decide which of the nine speeds is the appropriate one for the situation. There is a large gap in the lower gears, and sometimes it lurches when it downshifts at a speed just above idle as it shifts to a lower gear. Conversely, it is often lazy about shifting down a gear at higher speeds and it seems to lug a bit before finally changing down a gear. We have adapted to these behaviors, but I cannot say that we are really happy with them overall.
Stylish/Fun and Great Price

Has everything inside to make it feel like a luxury SUV, but then handles like an off-road vehicle and has endless capabilities off road/snow/dirt/sand. Such a comfortable ride and extremely stylish. TONS of compliments on my vehicle. It feels equivalent to something others pay 40-60k for, so very affordable for the great features this Jeep has.
Love my Jeep!

It's very comfortable even in the back seat. The display on the dash is easy to use and read. The extra long sunroof is so much fun. Putting down the rear seats to make the cargo area bigger is really easy and you don't have to remove anything first .
