Reviews for 2009 Jeep Wrangler
Well, it's a Jeep!
First things first... The one thing I can say about a Jeep is that if you're thinking of buying a Jeep, you need to be sure what it is you're buying. I got the 2009 Wrangler Rubicon, 2-door, soft top, with a manual transmission. It's loud. It's bumpy. The top isn't some push-button automatic deal to take down and put up. The cargo room is non-existent (if you need cargo room, get the 4 door version). It's built for off-roading, and has a VERY short wheelbase, so the on-road ride is not very good. If you want a Jeep just because you want a 4-seater convertible, you should probably buy a Camry Solara Convertible or an Audi A4. A Jeep is a Jeep, and you need to be "a Jeep person" to really be happy owning one. With the manual top and the zip-in rear windows, the expectation should be that if you're dropping the top, you're going to keep it off for a week or more. If you're not willing to expose yourself to the elements for that long, you'll never put the top down, and then you defeat the purpose of buying a Jeep in the first place. That said, all of the above did not negatively impact my review in any way. It's just to let people know what they're getting into. The actual negatives that did affect the review were as follows: 1) Gas mileage: They rate the Rubicon at 15/19, and I struggle to get 15 out of it with a mix of surface street and freeway driving. I do feel like I'm always filling the thing up. Not that my previous vehicle (2000 Ford Ranger V6) got great mileage, but it seemed to be much better than the Jeep. 2) Gearing: With a 6 speed manual, I expect the top gears to be well-suited for cruising at modest RPM. The gearing, on the other hand, is *VERY* short. At freeway speeds, I'm nearing 3K RPM, where given the torque of the motor and the very low redline, I'd expect to be around 2K. And the very narrow gearing means that I'm shifting gears constantly, even moreso than with my Ranger, which was a 5 speed manual. I don't mind the short gearing in the low gears, as that's probably useful for off-roading, but if they spaced the higher gears out a bit more, that really would improve the real-world characteristics. 3) No bluetooth: The radio has buttons for bluetooth connection, but for some reason they don't enable this on the Wrangler. With the CA handsfree law, I was *really* looking forward to having bluetooth, and when I test drove the Jeep, seeing those buttons suggested to me that the feature was present. Then after I took delivery when I tried to start syncing it with my phone, I realized that the buttons were completely non-functional. If they're not-functional, *TAKE THEM OFF*. I felt a major disappointment when Jeep could easily have avoided this by merely not putting the labeling on those buttons and making me think the feature was there. All that said, am I happy with the vehicle? Yes. With the exception of the above complaints, it's exactly what I expected a Jeep to be, which is exactly what I was looking for.
I LOVE MY JEEP
I have owned several Jeeps in my life from a 43 GPW to an 4 door Wrangler, I am so impressed with the over ride & drive of my new Wrangler. I would tell anyone who is thinking about it, stop thinking and buy the Jeep already. Even with the soft top the A/C keeps you nice and chilly in the Summer here in Phoenix ( it gets over 115 in the summer) Drives nicer down the freeway than most cars I have driven,
Despite being 6 years old, this car was clean and in great condition. It looks and drives like new.
