2010 Jeep WranglerNow a Jeep lover - Cumberland, MD07/01/2010
Well, here goes... I originally had a 1998 Wrangler. For what it was, a third vehicle, it was great. Very small not good for a family.
Now I own a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. This thing is a night and day difference between the two door model!
I am married with four kids. So family drives with all the kids are pretty much non existant in this Jeep since it seats five. Unless my oldest wants to stay home or is out with friends. Otherwise it fits my wife and three little kids quite well and even has enough cargo space in the back for a weekend trip! If you looking for long distance comfort though, forget it. The seats and headrests and at best like sitting on a brick. Short distances are ok. Since this is my daily driver and commute one hour each way, I've gotten used to the seats... After my first 5,000 miles. The heater and A/C are top notch. Even with the soft top. The Bluetooth works well at highway speed with the soft top on and ok with the top down and windows up.
It is built to drive where others can't. So if your looking for a plush cushy ride, buy a Caddy! But if you're looking for a very capable SUV, the Jeep is for you. My wife says my favorite line is, "Hang on! I want to try something..."
Overall I would buy another. There's nothing like driving with everything off, including the doors! What a rush! If your looking for a larger family vehicle this may not be the right choice. However, for a smaller family it's quite nice.
It's true what they say: "It's a Jeep thing. You wouldn't understand." I didn't until I owned one.
The Jeep Wrangler is not for everyone: As a "Family Car" it would be more likely to lead the owners to divorce court, than to bliss. Access to the rear seat is limited to very small individuals,at least in the 2-Dr. version,(none of my friend's wives need try.), and there are other quirky items that seem to have been engineered into the vehicle by design: Whenever it rains, if you open either door, a cascade of water drips down on the fabric seat and carpeting. Also, if you purchase a full tank of gasoline and allow the gas pump to "click off" automatically, a quart of gasoline will regurgitate itself from the filler pipe and drench your feet.
If you should choose to purchase a Wrangler, you should probably plan to own another, more practical, more comfortable, more conventional vehicle as well.
Now for the good stuff: This thing is a blast to drive! It is relatively quiet inside (Hardtop version), handles nicely at highway speeds,gets better gas mileage than the window sticker says,and with the rear seat removed,becomes the ultimate grocery hauler around town. The short wheelbase coupled with excellent visibility and agile handling,along with the smooth shifting 6 speed manual transmission puts the fun back into commuting.
When the pavement ends, the *real* fun begins: The high ground clearance along with adequate rubber footprint on the ground, and of course, 4 wheel drive, turn the Wrangler into a mountain goat.There is reason for the same basic automotive configuration, with its military parentage, has survived since 1941. Rugged and presumably reliable, (Just look underneath a Jeep Wrangler alongside any current front wheel drive car.),the Wrangler is the ultimate personal utility vehicle.
Everybody (Well,almost everybody), should own one once in their lifetime.
