I have wanted a Jeep since I was a kid, but kept putting it off until I had taken care of all of the 'important stuff'. My only regret was I didn't get it sooner. I just hit the 10K mark and couldn't be happier. Form, fit & finish are very good. Acceleration is a little slow - but should be expected. I've taken it onto fire roads and some minor trails - and never had any doubt about being able to get back home. Highway mileage is better than expected: 21-22 MPG (70MPH, with A/C). If you are considering a Wrangler - make sure you understand what you are getting. It has a short wheelbase, which means it responds quickly to steering input - I'd almost describe the car as "twitchy" or "nervous" on the highway. You get used to it; just don't try to take a turn too fast and you should be OK. The ride is also bouncy, and with the soft top, can be noisy. But that is what you SHOULD expect from a Wrangler. Nothing compares to dropping the top and going for a ride out in the country, or the smile on my daughter's face when they look up at night to see the stars as far as the eye can see. If you understand what you are buying, the Wrangler is a great vehicle - just make sure you understand (and can deal with) living with the noisy, bouncy ride. For me, it brings a grin from ear to ear.
It's a Jeep. I've been a fan of the Jeep since I was a child growing up on Army bases. This 2010 is a fun rides and has handled perfectly off-road with stock equipment. It feels much more stable at high speeds and on turns than the 2-door You do sacrifice the turning ratio with the longer and wider wheel-base, but it's still tighter in the turns than a lot of other SUVs its size. Finally, whatever people say about the mileage, I'm able to get between 21-24 mpg on the highway and 14-17 mpg in the city. Better than some of my friend's fancy SUVs.
