Buying a used Jeep Wrangler makes a statement about you: that you are an outdoorsman, adventurer; someone who does not care if he gets dirty by four-wheeling in the backcountry. The doors, front windshield and the top come off so that the interior can be hosed down after a four-wheeling run. The vehicle lacks quite a number of safety features, is a gas-guzzler and is not smooth riding. This vehicle does not have a lot of room for passengers or cargo, with no locking "trunk".
Remember this is a four-wheeling vehicle used to a lot of abuse and hard-hitting road adventures. Be sure to inspect it thoroughly and even test-drive it, if possible, on both regular roads and off-roads for handling and stability. Some dealerships have "off-road" tracks to test drive on. There are 9 different trims available, offering rear wheel drive or four-wheel drive, manual or automatic transmission, all with a 3.8L V6 engine and 17 mpg. The prices range from $21,000 to $32,000.
Before answering the "For Sale" sign, research the vehicle's features. Be sure that the lack of luxury, smooth ride and space is agreeable to you. Some used car dealers will certify their vehicle and provide a car history upon request. If buying from a private party, be sure to obtain a car history online first and definitely test-drive it. Inspect it thoroughly, especially the powertrain and underneath for any evidence of "hanging it up" (where the vehicle is straddling a rock or something with wheels off of the ground). This can spell trouble in the future since there may be damage to the undercarriage.
Always protect yourself by carefully inspecting any vehicle, purchasing a car history and test-driving any vehicle you plan to purchase. For more information, check out CarsDirect's comprehensive listings for used Jeep Wranglers below.Show More »
