2012 Jeep Wrangler Opinions

For those of you who have a 2012/2013 Jeep Wrangler; what do you think of your purchase, and would you buy it again?

I am considering a new Jeep Wrangler in the next day or two and would like to get feed back on the 2012/2013.

Thanks in advance...

I have a 2013 wrangler (Sahara) and love it! I'd definitely buy one again.

We love ours. We have a 2012 sport s unlimited. Traded in a 06 TJ. Very much smoother ride and the 4 drs let the kids in and out easier not counting all the room behind the 2nd row.

Yes I'd buy it again!!

We have a 2012 and we like it very much. It's great as a toad; easy setup and easy tow. I will say that I'm glad it's not our only vehicle, though. It rides like a... Jeep.

I'm a RV Noobie and LOVE my 2012 JEEP. Drives great and tows great.
I traded a 2011 in for the 2012 because of the new generation engine.
Dont go older than a 2012 you will kick yourself. It's a night and day difference.

Got rid of the dog '08 Rubicon for the '12, what a difference in performance. Towed both 4 down.

We replaced the '07 Wrangler (after it was totaled in an accident) with our '12, and yes, I'd buy another but doubt we'll ever wear this one out.

For what it's worth, the suspension is certainly more firm than a typical family sedan, but the 4 door Unlimited isn't bad at all, in my opinion. The shorter wheelbase 2 door will provide a stiffer, choppier ride.

I drove both, bought the 2 door. The difference in ride was small. Each has advantages. But the much improved suspension that came out in 12 beats all previous Wranglers.

I have a 2012 2dr. Wrangler and it tows great. If you want to improve the ride install Rancho 9000 XL adjustable shocks. They have adjustments for on road or off road stiffness settings that are easy to change. They are well worth the money to install if this is your daily driver on the softest settings they take the chop out of the ride.

I'd buy a new one in a heart beat but I have an 07 with a "LIFETIME" Drivetrain warranty. I like the new interior, the new 5 speed auto and the extra HP the 3.6 provides but I got that warranty. I'll drive the wheels off of this JK.
I've put up the the lack of HP for 96k miles, I'll put up with it for a few more 100k's

You have it all!
The inline 6 has plenty of power.
