Summary:

There is only one Jeep!

Faults:

In the one year I have owned this Jeep, I have had no serious problems. I did have the exhaust fixed at 81,000 miles. Driver seat had two small tears in it when I got it. Minor valve cover leak. I also had to replace the rear differential gasket.

General Comments:

My 1993 Wrangler is a fun truck to drive all year round. In the summer there is nothing better than taking off the doors and top and getting on the highway.

The handling is quite responsive. The fear of rolling my Jeep never crossed my mind.

With my after market center counsel the ride is much more comfortable than with the factory center counsel.

Summary:

This one is a keeper!

Faults:

Very minor stuff - rear window defroster repeatedly fails; door locks and window mechanisms have been repaired/replaced several times.

General Comments:

This vehicle is used as daily driver and only taken offroad during vacations.

Power train has been extremely reliable. No major failures/expenses to date.

Equipped with a hardtop & A/C, this Jeep has been an outstanding four-season vehicle in the worst of conditions.

Mileage is consistent - 15 MPG in town and 18-20 on the highway.

The ABS brakes have been flawless.

Cat Converter is achilles heel. After two failures, fitted a straight pipe - still passes emissions. Engine management system failed. In fairness - used heavily off-road with non-standard tyres and suspension lift.

How did you like the 4 cylinder?

The 2.5 will be severely underpowered if you plan to add bigger tires... tow anything... or get anywhere in a "hurry".

I have a 2000 model model with the 2.5, and it's getting 10 MPG with 31" tires. 91,000 miles and not a lot of failures, but I still wouldn't buy another 2.5. The 4.0 is the way to go. The engine doesn't have to work as hard during normal use, and offers plenty of reliability and capability. My 1993 4.0 gets twice the mileage of the 2.5.
