This is my 3rd Jeep. Started with the 4cyl., then a 6 cyl. Sport, and now the 6 cyl. Unlimited 2door. Blue with Chrome bumpers, 6 speed, hard top. Smooth drive and quiet on the hwy. My best running Jeep so far. Ok, not the best on mpg gas but it will get me where I'm going on or off the road. Fun vehicle to drive..........yea,it's a Jeep thing.
I bought this Wrangler for the express purpose of tooling around and surviving whatever weather my "beloved" state decides to throw at me. It's 4x4 capabilities should save my scrawny hide, unlike my Camaro last time. Out of this practical reason, I quickly fell in love. It's a tough, tenacious machine with a lot of personality and its quirks. It doesn't accelerate too well, and, occasionally, the shifter sticks, but that's easily handled. Considering that its four years old and a rugged, off-roading beast, it's in remarkably good condition. It's interior is immaculate and comfy, and aside from some faded paint, I have no problems with its exterior. There is, however, a lot of road noise-but, if you're like me, you enjoy the sound of the road. It's especially nice when you're in the sticks, roughing it with your Jeep, you'll hear mother nature speak to you. Don't expect comfort or class, just expect it to get you around and do everything that you ask of it. Besides, if you're even looking at this review, you're surely not shopping for a Beamer.
I've owned many vehicles over the years, including one other Jeep - a 1995 Wrangler. This 2006 Wrangler Unlimited is easily my favorite vehicle ever owned by far. Comfortable, way more quiet than old Wranglers, and I have zero doubts about the long-term capabilities of the 4.0 engine. I'll always own a Wrangler - they are a gateway to fun.
