1995 Jeep Wrangler RIO GRANDE 2.5 from North America
A reliable fun tractor that you can take anywhere
The major problem with the Wrangler is the catalytic converter. I drive 100 miles every day and have gone through 7 so far. Other than that, the worst thing about the jeep is that you have to deal with a dealership when you buy one. They have room for improvement.
I have over 200000 miles on this jeep and can't wait until the next 200000. This vehicle is so easy to work on and very reliable to drive. Parts are very easy to find as well as cheap. I will always keep this vehicle as a second car. It's a 4x4 convertible that you can take to work or on a camping trip and she always brings you home. I just waxed my jeep and after 200000 miles she looks like she just drove off the show room floor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Well I have put about 500 miles on my 95 Rio Grande since my last comment in Dec.'05 and really satisfied I bought it. As stated before, I wanted to keep it in nice stock condition like is, but did do a few things my self to improve the stiff ride. First thing I did was replace all the shackle bolts with greaseable fittings and that really helped for spring flex. Also I installed new Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks with the lowest setting of #1 for street use. Those 2 things I did really improved the ride considerably with out adding the big tires or body lifts. My brother in law has a '97 Wrangler which of course has coil springs and it does have a smoother ride than my '95. But I like mine better because it rides like a real jeep.
