As a car that was designed in the Second World War as an army vehicle, it’s no surprise that the Jeep Wrangler is a rugged, off-road mobile. One of the stand-out features of the Wrangler is its fold-down windscreen and removable doors that allow drivers to experience safari-like open air driving. For more than seven decades the Wrangler hasn’t deviated far from its initial design, and loyal Jeep owners tend to love the nostalgia that comes with these cars. If you opt for the Sport version, you’ll still enjoy the same, long-loved, original features of the Jeep, but with even more kick.

In terms of used Jeep Wranglers, perhaps a few design updates wouldn’t have been such a downside. The hard-top option tends to leak and may need extra sealing done if the buyer is in a rainy area. If the previous owner hadn’t taken care of this, check for any interior water damage. The less-romantic side of Jeep maintaining the original design from 70 years ago is that you won’t be enjoying any major thrills or comfort features. There is air conditioning, electric windows, and a stereo system, but any extras you’ll have to have installed yourself. Some drivers opted for an upgrade to a touchscreen as well as a reverse camera, which is especially useful if you have a trailer you need to back in to. There have also been some reports of cracking audio and spotty voice recognition so if the stereo is really important to you then you might budget for a new, non-Jeep system.

The other very important thing to note about the basic design is the lack of an advanced safety package. While there is ABS, traction control, and electronic stability, there is only the bare minimum of front and passenger airbags while side bags are not included and are only optional for the front seats. Seatbelts don’t have pre-tensioners so heavy braking can send passengers uncomfortably forward in their seats with little resistance. The 2012 Wrangler received 4 out of 5 on the ANCAP safety rating which may seem reasonable but most cars these days hit the 5-star mark. If you’re buying or selling a used 2012 Jeep Wrangler, make sure all extra safety features are noted, especially if the car is intended for use as a family vehicle.

The standard specifications of the Wrangler sport are a 2.8L, 4-cylinder, diesel engine that makes 147 kW and 460 Nm, with a 5-speed automatic transmission. While combined consumption is quoted at 112L./100km and even as low as 8.8L/100km, you should anticipate closer to 12 or 13 litres, especially if you’re going to be driving off-road.
