Bought it new - owned now for 2 years

I've always loved Wranglers. No other vehicle gives you the combination of top down/doors off driving and a feeling of total freedom. I purchased a brand new 2015 Jeep 4DR in May of 2015. Since then, I've put on more than 20k miles. I can say that I have not had any mechanical or electrical issues, or any unexpected dealer visits. I have the 6 Sp manual which is a blast to drive. I've averaging 17.5 MPG around town. I opted for the premium soft top (I live in Minnesota) and it is perfectly suited for year round driving even in the cold. The soft top is easy to use and makes it much more convenient to take advantage of nice weather than lugging and stowing the hard top each time you want the top down. Everything you've heard about the loud cabin, etc is true. This isn't a good choice if you are after a smooth and creamy ride and a hushed interior. I drove my Jeep from MN to CO to SD and back to MN pulling a 10 FT pop-up camper. The Wrangler pulled it just fine, but in 6th gear, it's impossible to hold your speed without downshifting. This was a pain when driving through hilly country. But I was also able to hit a few off-road trails (the Jeep is totally stock except for side-steps), and the experience was just amazing. Love my Wrangler. I plan to keep it forever!UPDATE - June-2016. I still love my jeep and I still have not had any issues with it. I've now added a TerraFlex 2.5 inch lift and 35 inch NItto Ridge Grappler tires, along with LED headlight and taillights. I get lots of compliments when I drive around. I have just over 25k miles on it now. Planning to pull the pop-up out to Montana and Wyoming next summer.
