The only problem I have is my commute. I wish it were longer, over more uneven terrain & involves frequent engagement of 4x4.


Other than that.... ummm... nothing too major. Go buy it. Then post pictures for us!

take care of it and it will return the favor.

40,000 miles on mine and ZERO problems that weren't caused by something I did.


ohhh, its an auto too. Sticks haven't been so friendly.

Regular plain jane X 4 door. couple of minor things. Squeaky clutch(fixed) clutch slave cylinder(fixed). Leaky top(learned how to put on right. How much fun I have with my Jeep -priceless. Go buy it with the full understanding that you have one of the most flexible vehicles on the road-most off road capable, convertible, still practical for everyday use, doors come off, top comes off, windshield comes down, water resistant interior. It is not a suburban or an explorer, it is not a bmw, it does not ride like a car or an suv, it is slower than you are used to, won't turn as fast, gets weak gas mileage but I love it

Heard the hard top leaks. But I love my 2009 Sahara. Never owned a Jeep before and honestly was a little skeptical about buying one. My wife wanted the 4-door and thought, with my experience with worked Mustangs from engines to suspensions (I have one with full Griggs tubular susp.) know these trucks ride like, uh, trucks. So I didn't want to hear my wife not liking it a week after we bought it because it rides like my Stang. But, to my surprise, this thing is AWESOME! We can't wait to take the top off it and go to the beach. Only drove it "off road" once in 15" of snow and it was fun watching those Benz SUV's have a hard time getting out of their own way. Had one guy watch me literally drive OVER a 3 foot pile of snow plowed up in what was an entrance to the train station when I went to pick up the wife. I pulled over and he walked over to me and asked if I had a shovel so he can dig his Subaru Forrester out from the pile the plow pushed up against his car. hahahaha.... I told him "No, don't need one..." He said, "Yeah can see that..."

Get it!

Have the 6 speeds been problematic?

Just had a huge thunderstorm last night and she is dry as can be inside. My wife will never drive anything else!
