LIKES
I like the fact that i can take 1 roof panel of 2 roof panels off the whole roof off. put a soft top on , take the doors off,put the doors on.
drive through snow , i like the fact that its quite chunky and in car parks if people open their doors and bang your jeep they do damage to their
own cars. I like the fact that i got a diesel and it does quite a few mpg.
It has to be the most versatile customise-able car/jeep on the road.
when your bored with it you can virtually change anything. i like the fact that theres not many wranglers in the UK.
The admiring-glance-ometer is always off the scale,.
I like my dealer because so far have been very polite and accomodating.
i like the fact that theres a forum like this.
DISLIKES
The electric window switches could be illuminated hard to find in the dark.
Silly little niggles with the electronics too much electrical crap on this type of car.They should make an unplugged version.Probably call it the
"fred flintstone".

What I like; the best off-roading vehicle I've had the pleasure to drive. It's not a Porsche on the tarmac, but it's still a blast to drive.

Dislike; sudden thunderstorms when the doors were left at home. Either that, or the fact I don't have enough money to get new tires. The stock 16" wheels suck for off-roading on anything other than a gravel road (not that I've pushed it that far).

I forgot to mention this dislike: the rear seat in a 2 door is so bad. No tilt and you can't move it. I disliked it so much I took it out. It now lives in my garage.

2013 JKU here. In the short time I've owned this one:

Likes: Front top off in seconds, knowing I can go anywhere out of the box.

Dislikes: Most uncomfortable seats I've experienced in a while (which I think is mainly due to lack of good lumbar support)

Me and two other friends agreed that the rear seat in a 2 door has better comfort than the rear seat in a 4 door. I think that it is more tilted on a 2 door.


But the boot space is very bad on the 2 door

In 4HI I think that You can completely disable the ESC if You press the esc button for at least 5 sec.

I heard that the rear seat in the 4 door (especially the middle cushion) was based on some type of midieval torture device.

Dislikes-zip down windows, small cargo space, mpg and long distance driving (maybe because I have 700 to drive tomorrow)

Likes-taking door uppers off, taking top off, driving in snow, driving through almost anything and just about everything else!

Just might have to step up to a 4 door when the diesel comes out...

I hate the back window and tailgate. Wish the tailgate just tilted down like a pickup, hate rolling the back window up to get cargo out, hate cracking the back window to get cargo out cause the cargo needs to come out even if its cold. I'm considering one of those fold-down tailgate kits. I like how you can sit on the tailgate on a pickup. Would be sweet on a jeep.

I like taking the doors and roof off.

Ok, I'm sorry, I'm just sick of explaining the difference between off & completely disabled (no offense to you guys) so I wasn't clear. You guys are right, you can sorta turn it off with the button but thats not what I'm talking about. I need it completely disabled. Pushing the button or even when its in 4L it is not completely disabled (disabled as in what the steering wheel dance used to do or a kill switch would do - which doesnt work on the 13 autos), that is what I need & was speaking of.

Like: The quality on my 2012 JKU softtop Sahara has been great. It should be it is only approaching 1 year old. No leaks, ticks, undercarriage surface rust, electronic issues, ac stops blowing for a minute or heater core replacement.

Dislike: The lack of quality for other Wrangler owners and how Fiat Chrysler is reacting to it and the darned clock losing time.

Heard there was a fix for the clock thing...does it not work?

The thing I like most is the way it makes ME feel when I get into it. I didn't buy it to make anyone happy but myself, and I love every second that I'm driving it. Of course the amount of women that like it certainly doesn't hurt.

Haven't really found anything that I strongly dislike. There are a few things I'd change but I don't think any vehicle is perfect.

I think it has already been mentioned, but I really dislike the way the passenger seat folds forward for entry to rear passenger seat. My old YJ was way better than that.

However, I really like my 13 JK in almost every other way.

I had the same thing.. did this easy fix last year and it worked perfectly.

Like: The Badassery that results from how easy and fun it is to customize/modify.

Dislike: The decreasing bank account balance that results from The Badassery.

I love my 2012 JKU Sport S. I'm very impressed with how well this Wrangler performs off road as is. Even more impressed after just putting on a 2.5" lift.
dislike that the clock falls 2 minutes behind a month. Gonna take it in soon to see if they have a fix for that yet. (Didn't have a fix last time I was there)

Most likes: Just when I get into it and look out over the hood and say WOW, my dream of owning a Wrangler TJ has come true..................

Most dislikes: would be seeing my wife struggle somewhat when she is getting into it. Ours is the 2013 Rubicon and they have increased the seat cushion height for comfort, but unfortunately, since she is short, it is more of a challenge for her to enter.

Dislike the rear soft top window. Has to be a better way than a double zipper.
Like doors and top off and much more.

Most Like: driving it in the summer with the top off, especially on a warm Michigan night

Least Like: the all-black interior (I think it's stupid that Jeep makes a camel leather interior, but you can only get it if you order a sahara)

Biggest Dislike: No Automatic headlights in "S" model. Really how hard would it be to make this standard.

Loves: How it makes me feel like a kid again!
