Car reviews - Jeep - Wrangler - Sport 3-dr wagon
14 Feb 2001
WRANGLER uses a traditional ladder frame chassis, the preferred off-road method of construction but one not favoured by road safety experts. Dual airbags are standard and anti-lock brakes are not available. A skid plate protects the fuel tank while a heavy-duty steel bar cage provides roll-over protection in all models. The soft-top has half doors that have seen front seat occupants lean out of the vehicle during crash tests. The brake-park interlock on models with auto transmission will not allow the shifter to be taken out of park until the brake pedal is depressed. A clutch-starter interlock on manual transmission Wranglers will not start the engine until the clutch pedal is depressed.
Did you know?During World War II, in addition to its primary reconnaissance role, the Jeep was used as a stretcher-bearer, machine gun firing mount, ute, front line limousine, ammunition bearer, wire layer and taxi
