"I absolutely love my Mountain Edition, 4dr Wrangler. The tires make the ride a bit louder that my first Unlimited 4dr Wrangler, but this Jeep is great. I love the ability to have a convertible, hard-top, t-tops, and even buy custom tops that allow for personality to be given to my Jeep. My kids often have Hockey and Soccer Equip. that takes a lot of room, and we are never short of room in the back. I take my Jeep off-road, and it has NEVER GOTTEN STUCK- and is great to take when working (I do home health). You would think the gas mileage would eat me alive, but it doesn't- I love being able to drive in everyones driveway (old ppl don't shovel their driveways in winter) and if I am driving around all day, I would not rather be in any other ride than my Jeep- Rockin' out to my Sirius radio, with awesome sound system. Hard to find anything wrong with my Jeep- and super proud to buy something MADE IN THE USA:)"
"I updated from a 2007 Wrangler Sport to a 2012 Wrangler Sport. Same color, same options, except I got weak and ordered the Power Convenience Group. I haven't used the extra horsepower yet due to low miles on the new engine.
The ride is improved over '07 just enough(not too soft)and is quieter too. The 2012 seats are also better but, the '07 seats were good. This Jeep still turns on a dime and is fun to drive anywhere. It's a great shopping cart or cross-country cruiser. At 65 on the highway we drive it without fatigue.
The power windows/locks are OK, but I can't wait to use the heated mirrors that came with this package.
I think this car is under-understood by reviewers with pop-culture mindsets.
"I had an 08 Wrangler Unlimited that I traded for a GMC pickup. Traded pickup and got a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. The Jeep Wrangler is one of the few vehicles that never goes out of style. I have been well pleased, overall, with the quality of my Sahara. Though somewhat underpowered it gets me where I want to go with a minimum amount of effort."
Cons: "Engine upgrade will be welcome for extra power"

"Best Jeep yet out of 23 since my 1965 Tuxedo Park CJ5!!! Lotsa fun, not bad gas mileage, almost unstoppable. Some semi serious off roading especially at last "Camp Jeep" did all it was asked! I highly recommend, if you're an owner of an older style Wrangler if you don't want to buy a new 4dr wrangler, better not demo one you'll be sold!"
"I have always been a Jeep person, and have owed a 2 DR Wrangler before. I am loving the 4 doors though, it is so my roomier and you actually have a trunk space! There have been a couple of recalls for this model, but nothing life threatening! I will always love my Jeep!"
"Love, Love, Love it!! it is so fun to drive, so versatile. I ride with the top down, the top up but the windows removed, or with the sun-rider top open. I get compliments all the time. I will get another one after I retire this one.
The only bad thing is having to go to the dealer, I don't like any of the Jeep dealerships around me. They are rude and unhelpful."
"My Jeep has never been back to the dealer and has no issues. It is used a lot off-road and will go anywhere I'm brave enough to go. My only wish is for a little more engine. Towing a trailer or going uphill in a headwind can be a trying experience."
"I have owened this jeep for about 2 months. I am having a problem with the A/C. It has a soft top so I am not sure if it has anything to do with it. Other than that it is by far the best thing I have bought"
"2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Model.
I love it!! Terrible gas mileage, rides like a box through the wind but it's a jeep! A lot of fun to drive. The removable panels above the driver and passenger are easy to remove instead of the entire hard top (I bought in the fall). I'm looking forward to my first summer with it."
"Had a 2002 and was a bit reluctant to trade because I was afraid the new Wrangler wouldn't be a "real" Jeep but wanted side airbags. I was WRONG! This thing is all that the old Jeep was and more: more stable, more comfortable, more..."
"Have the 2 wd..as I wanted to save gas, and dont really need the serious offroad capability.. what a fun car, much better made than the older jeeps, quieter, drives nice on the hwy, but still feels like a jeep. love the half top option or sunrider. 10 seconds and you have a air. easy to clean, doors come off in seconds....and the millage isn't bad if you drive conservatively"
"I bought this Jeep in May of 2008 12000 miles later I am still very happy with my choice averaging 19.8 mpg since new stability control is great here in the Northeast keeps the Jeep in line and moving in the direction you want it to go the removeable roof panels are easy to work and water tight decent stereo w/ sirius this is my 5th Jeep always CJs or wranglers my only regret is that I got black tough to keep clean in the winter but looks so nice when it is shiny and clean"
"It wont get 5 stars for comfort, although it is way more comfortable than older models and than I expected. Value isnt great when you get 13 mpg (with 5.5" lift and 35" tires) but I knew that going into it. Bottom line: It is a Toy. And for what it is designed to do, there is none better. But dont get it if it is your only means of transp. as gas bill is rediculous. Definitely turns lots of heads, esp. with top / doors off."
