This Jeep is strong and reliable.
Jeeps are notorious for their bad radiators, I replaced this and the entire cooling system around 120,000 miles. The transmission recently started slipping for the first time since it was built, and I put some Lucas Transmission Fix in it which has stopped the slipping for now. I have replaced several parts for the AC this past summer as well, around 130,000 miles.
This Jeep doesn't get the best gas mileage ever, I average around 13 miles per gallon, but it will outlast any other car on the road. I plan to take care of this jeep, and keep it forever. It is reliable, and is amazing off road because it is so light. I have a 4.5" lift on it and 31 inch pro comp mud terrain tires. I have not gotten stuck in mud yet, and have taken it through some serious stuff. Overall, I think this is a perfect car for a teenager or anyone because it is so versatile and fun to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
