Tips for Buying a Jeep Wrangler

on March 9, 2022

It is no surprise that the Jeep Wrangler is continuously a popular vehicle option for many drivers. The Jeep Wrangler is a fairly simple vehicle, but due to the brand, design, and capability of this SUV.  It has continued to grow and prosper in popularity for many years.  

The original design of the Jeep Wrangler is based on a vehicle from the 1940s that was used by the United States Army during World War Two.  The term “Jeep” grew as the nickname for that vehicle, and eventually, the Jeep brand came into the consumer’s hands.  Ever since then, car fans love the unique design and character of the Jeep Wrangler.  

Not only that, but the Jeep Wrangler is one of the best off-road vehicles available in the market.  This is due to the short front and read overhangs, clearance capabilities, and wheelbase. Jeep Wranglers are truly a “Go Anywhere” vehicle, which is very appealing to a lot of people.

If you are interested in purchasing a new or used Jeep Wrangler, look no further than DriveSmart because we have the best tips and tricks to getting a Jeep Wrangler in your life.  

Buying a Used Jeep Wrangler

If you are planning on buying a Used Jeep Wrangler, then the first thing you will want to do is check out the body of the vehicle.  I am not just talking about looking under the hood either, you need to do a full inspection. 


We recommend checking the outer panels and looking for rust or big dents on the frame of the vehicle.  You should also take a look underneath the vehicle, and make sure that the vehicle is not in poor condition underneath as that could lead to serious problems in the future regardless of the number of miles on it.  

Don’t forget to inspect the tires, and make sure they are properly aligned and rotated before purchasing the Jeep.  

Next, you need to read into the mileage of the vehicle.  Unlike other types of vehicles out on the road, the Jeep is an off-road vehicle.  You need to find out if the previous owner or owners used the jeep for off-roading or not. If the jeep has low mileage but was used in crazy off-road conditions, it could have the same impact as a high mileage jeep that was only driven on normal roads. 

Finally, if you are looking to purchase a used jeep wrangler, we recommend asking for the mechanical history of the vehicle along with test driving the car.  You want to check to see the full record of maintenance and repairs of the vehicle.  

In the event that the Jeep had some serious repairs or was not properly maintained, it might not be the best Used Jeep for you.  When you are taking it out on a test drive, try to listen to the jeep to see if there is any stuttering, ticking, or weird jerks and handling problems before you go through with the purchase of your Jeep Wrangler.  

If you follow these steps, you should be able to find a Used Jeep Wrangler within your price budget, that will last you for a long time.  

Buying a New Jeep Wrangler

The biggest advice we can give to you from DriveSmart when purchasing a new Jeep Wrangler is to make sure that you are getting everything that you want out of the vehicle.  Jeeps are very customizable and can include a lot of modifications and special editions of the car.  

That is why you should not rush to purchase the first Jeep Wrangler on the dealership lot that catches your eye.  Do the research and find all the customizations and modifications available and purchase the right Jeep Wrangler that fits your needs and lifestyle.  

At the end of the day, when you end up with your New or Used Jeep Wrangler, the best purchase you can make is a DriveSmart Warranty.  In the event that your wrangler suffers from a malfunction or breakdown, DriveSmart will pay for all the repairs of your wrangler, and get you back on or off the road in no time!
