The limited market for the Wrangler means that you may struggle to sell the thirsty 4.0-litre car on except to specialists. Nor will it prove especially cheap to run, due to its poor fuel economy and high insurance ratings. Servicing can prove pricey too.
Jeep Wrangler quality & reliability
The 4.0-litre unit has proved reliable down the years, and it takes on- and <\n>off-road abuse very well. Trim quality in the Wrangler’s sturdy cabin is of the wipe-clean variety – useful if you plan off-roading. The minor switchgear feels flimsy, however and you may experience a few squeaks and rattles.
Jeep Wrangler safety & security
Here the Wrangler really shows its age. You’ll get protected by twin front airbags in a collision, but there’s precious little else. Neither anti-lock brakes nor side airbags are available <\n>even as options. The same applies to the paltry protection from thieves. With the standard soft-top fitted, you’ve only got an immobiliser to ward off criminals.
