Excessive wind noise on a vehicle with no roof! Who would have thunk?

Re: 15 New Cars To Avoid

The last sentence probably has some truth to it.

However, if the rank the Prius number 1, it goes to show you what the value in a vehicle.

Furthermore, they'd probably rank any motorcycle I have ever owned as far less safe, much noisier at speed and far less comfortable than a JKU and yet when the weather is nice I'll take my bike over anything.

The Wrangler almost always makes these lists and it really doesn't matter. Wouldn't most other car companies love to have a model with the same brand loyalty?

I am quite sure that Kurt Badenhausen wears a pinstriped suit when he mows his lawn. And thinks that a camping trip requires formal dinner attire.

What a joke of an article. If anything, the Unlimited version broadened the applicability of the Wrangler for daily use. But maybe that's the problem since now it gets compared to all other four door SUVs, crossovers, station wagons, hatchbacks, etc.

Re: 15 New Cars To Avoid

I think most the times articles like this bash the Wrangler it's because they expect it to be like an Explorer, Xterra or H2. That's the "Jeep thing"....you don't have to understand!
