2012 Unlimited Sahara - Test drive was unstable

I was pretty unimpressed today when I test drove a brand new 2012 Unlimited Sahara for the first time. This car was way up in my bucket list, but now I'm thinking it's not worth the money. Driving on city streets and freeway, my wife and I both noticed uncomfortable forward and back bucking and at times side to side instability. Also, if you put the rear seats down, there is a dangerous gap left in the floor for your pet to get injured in. A simple flip down cover on the back of the seats would plug the gaps without you having to haul extra matts or boards around...Very disappointed

First mistake in thinking its a car. Its not a SUV. Might want to look at cars that pretend to be a Suv's. Or Suvs that pretend to be a Jeep.

Get a real pet, not a damn rat and it wont fit in the gap. Sounds like you need to stick with your prius. Its a jeep. Sounds like you need a hummer, or an h2. Get it! Hummer or h2?

You really should test drive a YJ. I hear they are much smoother and safer for tiny pets.
