WranglerWrangler Soft-Top Gets a Reprieve in California

A little over a week ago, I reported that the soft-top Wrangler was in danger of not being sold in California due to their "Cool Cars" regulation.

The Detroit News is reporting that the Wrangler has been given the necessary exemption:

The California Air Resources Board said Friday that when it issues its final "cool car" regulations, which will require vehicles to reduce the amount of heat entering vehicles starting in the 2012 model year, it will exempt soft-sided plastic windows.

"The Cool Cars regulation only applies to rigid windows and will not affect the flexible glazing on vehicles such as the Jeep Wrangler," the board said. "If the plastic windows are rigid, they must comply with the same standards as glass windows, beginning with the 2012 model year."

Looks like we missed the boat twice on this one, as AllPar also had the story correct from the beginning. Nice work, guys!
