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.

I purchased a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara roughly 2 months ago, and Ive loved every minute of it. I guess ill break it down like this...
The Good: Nearly Everything... The looks are arguably the #1 feature of this beast!! Take the top off, and your greeted with Thumbs Ups, Waves, and many many Stares of approval, something you'll almost never get with many other cars in its price range... also, I seem too feel like every1 likes a dude in a Jeep, Ive received not a single finger for cutting any1 off (LA traffic gets the best/worst of me). The V6 may seem weak at first, but it will push the needle past the 100mph tick if u let it.
The sound system is quite nice (Provided you have the subwoffer). 4 Wheel drive is sweet, put it in 4low and the Jeep begs for a challenge with every feathered touch of the peddle. The ground clearance is amazing (i changed my oil with no jack and minimal tools). Maintenance on this car is ridiculously simple, the oil pan, oil filter, alternator, and just about every other maintainable part is within easy reach without any need for special tools or jacks. GAS!! the economy is decent if you drive easy. 18-19 Mpg avg. (hwy/city) Ample storage space and hiding spots for your goods. The Heater and A/C BLAST!!! The heater will burn your feet off if you don't pay attention! Of course there are many more good things, we'll leave those for you to find out.
The bad: Low speed suspension is rough and bouncy. the seats are okay but the headrests' are pitiful. No front dome light, makes searching for things at night tough.
Overall. Two Thumbs up. Highly Recommended.

I bought a Sahara Unlimited Jeep Wrangler. I love the vehicle. One thing about Jeep, there are plenty of aftermarket parts that fit perfectly and allow some easy customization. Even for a guy like me that is not that handy around vehicles. I would recommend one if you are looking for a quality, stylish and rugged ride.
