Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Reviewed

Allpar.com has reviewed the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, both Rubicon models with automatic transmissions. They liked the general look and feel of the "real Jeeps," along with the new 3.8 liter engine, but dinged the sun visors and some other ergonomics. Overall, Allpar seemed to think that Jeep had once again (repeating the success of the CJ) gotten the on-road and off-road balance well in tune.

From the review:
The doors deserve special mention; Jeep doors are designed to be removed easily, and therefore have in the past not had power locks or windows. This vehicle did have power locks and windows, but retained the traditional simple hinge with a fabric "stop" to prevent the doors from opening all the way and hitting the fenders. The solution to the problem of removing doors with electric wires was simple enough…put a plug into the wiring so it can be detached. (Even though Jeep went with those poofy electric locks and windows, they kept the manually adjusted mirrors).
