What do you like the most and dis-like the most about your Wrangler?
 
What is the one item that you like the most about your Wrangler?
What is the one item that you dis-like the most about your Wrangler?

I could write a page full on what I like, but please just the one item that tops the list of likes and di-likes.

Thank you!

Like about it the most is, the pride that I have, in just knowing that my Wrangler is the most capable four (4) wheel drive available and that most other drivers also understand it!

Dis-like about it the most is, how hard it is to get into the back seat. Mine is a JK 2 door.:thumb:

Love being able to go from pavement to off road on the fly, relatively speaking. Drop a little air, pull the quick disco's... and voila: four wheeling.

I hate the driver's seat in the 2012.

Lol. I backed out on buying a 12 jku Sahara June of last year because of the seat. 13s are way way better. Don't know what changed but they are better for sure.

Dislike of mine is the back window on the soft top. Pain in the ass getting my sons stroller in and out, or getting to anything.

As for most like.. have to say the looks, best looking vehicles on the road.

So far the only thing I cant stand is the exterior door handles.
My TJ had the Paddle style handles. These more traditional push button handles aways have mud on the them. I live on a dirt road, seems like I get dirty hands everytime I open the door.

2012 Unlimited Sport ...Hate that I somehow get a puddle of water on passenger side footwell when it rains..other than that...love it

texasdave 03-25-2013 06:30 AM

I love everything about it!!

The only thing I dislike is that I don't have a garage.

Pattynole 03-25-2013 06:33 AM

i know it's a small beef, but i hate how the doors won't stay open. i get the why, but i still hate it.

otherwise, i love the damn thing!

2013 Sahara. In the 3 months we've owned it I'd say the thing I like the most about it is that we no longer dread lots of snow. 14 inches fell in our area yesterday and the wife and I went around looking for some unplowed parking lots while doing our regular running around.

The one item I dislike the most are the chrome daisy license plate frames my wife put on it. It's her Jeep, so I guess she can do whatever she wants with it.

cobraj59 03-25-2013 07:13 AM

Have a new Jeep 2013 Unlimited sport, Lot's of likes.. know you can go about anywhere, seats are good and The Billet color.

Cons, only thing bothering me was I wish it had some kind of stock mudflaps and I love the open slats of the iconic Jeep grill, but need to put mesh in to protect the radiators.

Binx 03-25-2013 07:14 AM

I get more compliments on a 30+ vehicle than I do on a 45+ one. I hate that I have a rattle on the passenger side that I can't pinpoint. I just turn the music up. Way more pro's then cons. My favorite vehicle I have ever owned and I've owned a lot, bikes included.

cobraj59 03-25-2013 07:16 AM

Hey Roadi, my wifes jeep as well.. First mod was the flowered seat covers form Target! Fine when I'm driving with her, but if I drive alone , I'm sure people are thinking when they see the seat covers " there's a guy who does not question his masculinity!"

cobraj59 03-25-2013 07:18 AM

Binx mine is thwe 2013.. and you know every once and I while I hear a rattle as well.. weird

whetstone 03-25-2013 07:38 AM

Dislike- gas mileage
Like- everything else

Sueby 03-25-2013 07:52 AM

I friggin HATE the fact that on my '13 auto I cannot completely disable the ESC anymore. Pisses me off more than words can explain. And now I'm too mad to even say what I love about it. LOL

Testut 03-25-2013 08:00 AM

I dislike the lack of power (I have the 2010 2-door) and the too-tall final gearing in 2Hi, but enjoy everything else. This is my first Jeep, but unless Wranglers are radically changed, it won't be my last.

bc3_Jeep 03-25-2013 08:00 AM

Like the fact they are the most capable machine there is, right out of the box....

Dislike all them after the YJ for becoming CARS.......

Binx 03-25-2013 08:04 AM

I also like the fact that people that buy jeeps complain about mpg, you didn't realize when you bought it that it's a 4000lb lunch box ? Makes me laugh, I get half the mpg of the car I got rid of. But driving under 10 mph has never been this fun or looked this good.

They have every right to complain about mpg. They bought the Wrangler for a reason and, like anything else, its lacking in other areas. MPG is one of those areas. Until Jeep makes a better vehicle that can off road AND get great MPG then its a valid complaint.

Anyways, the thing I love most about my wrangler is the 'coolness' of it. The thing I hate most is the impending doom of reliability.

rddavisjr 03-25-2013 08:44 AM

I hate the fact that the engine isn't a diesel. I love being able to take the top off.

If you could have a wrangler with all the power you want, low gears, big tires, etc, and get 30mpg would you turn it down?

Wsttimes0 03-25-2013 09:12 AM

Like everything about ours except the fact that we can't keep it out of the dealership for warranty repairs. Been in four times with les than 15k on the odo. Hopefully that is over and we can enjoy it now.

jkmohican 03-25-2013 09:21 AM

Like: The ease of picking up chicks now, the freedom, the off-road capability, the FOUR doors, (too much more than I can write on here).

Dislike: Too much carpet, the passenger seat doesn't drop, the rims are too big (Sahara).

termite 03-25-2013 09:32 AM

The lack of worthwhile lockable storage.

panthermark 03-25-2013 09:35 AM

Ton of stuff I hate.....but more stuff that I love.

My biggest gripe is the 14mpg I'm getting for a stock Sahara.

What I love most is how smooth the ride is and how I can't wait to take the top off.

Hmm...I checked ours (2013 Sahara with auto and 3.21) yesterday evening right after filling up and the last tank was 17.5 mpg. The display said 16.8 but I used a calculator.

This included over an hour of playing in the snow, donuts in unplowed parking lots, etc., in 4H mode yesterday and otherwise mainly driving back and forth to work on local roads.

Can't wait to see what it does once they switch over from the winter blend fuels.

cobraj59 03-25-2013 09:58 AM

What has gone wrong wsttimes? curious!

13FreedomBlack 03-25-2013 10:05 AM

Like most everything about my '13 'Freedom' Edition except the sloppy 6 speed shift action. Poor clutch takeup and driveline slop. So if you're monitoring this, Sergio, bring a fix for my next one.

Like the most: 'Top Off, Go Anywhere, I Don't Give A Care Mentality' when driving it

Like the least: Without a hoist the 4 door hardtop is a big challenge to take off by yourself, and then come up with an adequate storage solution that works for you and your family.

deepbluerubi 03-25-2013 11:24 AM

Dislikes:The soft top could be easier and faster to put back up "or down" and I have a 2 door........................

Poor gas mileage, but knew that going into it................

Other than that I love it.
