The Best Of Jeep

Jeep has been making cars for over 3 decades. At Auto Repair Montclair we recognize Jeep as a fun vehicle to drive.  All through these years, some Jeep models have stood out. If you consider getting a Jeep today, then you must buy Jeeps of specific years. Whether your interest is in reliability or fun driving, here are the years Jeep made spectacular vehicles.

The Year 1997 to 2006

Between 1997 and 2006, Jeep vehicles were the cars of choice.


Wranglers became popular and sales shot up. We all understand that sales only go up when a product is good. When Jeep made the Wrangler back in 1986, nobody would have predicted how popular these four by four off-roaders would be. After a successful World War 2 era where Jeep was the choice for military cars, came another period between 1997 and 2006 where off-roaders smiled all the way to hilltops in their wranglers.


Jeep Wrangler Rubicon from 1997 has a good reliability record. Most customers reported they have never got stuck anywhere during their off-roading adventures. From hill climbs to beach drives and even on normal roads, the Jeep Wrangler never disappointed. A comfortable interior made in Jeep Wranglers between 1997 to 2006 makes them a good choice for a four by four compact SUV. Spending hours on challenging terrain needs special comfort features such as modified suspensions and solid seats. Jeep had that in mind when they were making the Wrangler.

SUV Body Style

A manual transmission in the Rubicon served well during fun off-roading tours. No complaints have been raised about the Wranglers transmission between 1997 and 2006. The 4 litre engine with 6 cylinders in the 2004 Wrangler Rubicon produces enough power to pull you through any sort of terrain. Match such great power to a light body small SUV and you will have a vehicle that stops at nothing. Fuel consumption is on the higher side in the Jeep wrangler owing to the powerful engine and off-roading capabilities.

From 1997 to 2006 Jeep enjoyed popularity and great success. Jeeps made between those nine years greatly popularized Jeep as a vehicle manufacturing company.
