The Wrangler was last updated in 1997 and it's quite dated. Its strengths are solely off-road; it may be hard to live with every day. Its thirsty engine performs just adequately, handling is clumsy, and the ride is sloppy.

"It can drive in unusual terrain."

Anonymous, IN (2000 Jeep Wrangler)

"I have the 6 cylinder. Would not buy anything less. The acceleration is great. Too much play in the steering wheel. Handles real squirrely on the slightest moisture. I have problems coming out of full stop in the rain, going up hill, doing 360 trying to stop and even done a roll over."

Anonymous, MD (2000 Jeep Wrangler)

"Soft top. Very noisy on highway. Very rough ride. It's great off road but driving around town or on the highway is very uncomfortable. This came from factory with no air conditioning. Moved to utah since I bought it and it's very very hot inside this thing work no a/C."

"It is a Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Will go anywhere. Easy to park at shopping centers. Had 50,000 miles when we purchased in '07 & now has 80,000 miles. Can use to take dogs to vet, groomer & not worry about inside. It is 5 speed & I like driving around town & great to drive on our property in country."

"The air get in the jeep. Can't find where. Also rain gets in and I cant find the source. It pools on the passenger's floor mat. The dash is dry and so is the door. The seats need more padding"

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Very reliable."

Anonymous, IL (2000 Jeep Wrangler)

"I bought it new and have driven it for 17 years at highway speeds then crawling over rocks, thru sand, snow, water, mud up and down mountainsides in the cold and blistering heat. It is factory stock except for a $15 skid plate over the steering gear box. It has never broken down or over heated. I got my money's worth."
