2012 Jeep Wrangler Seat Room and Comfort: Cons

If you have a long-legged person in the front, the rear seat legroom can be a bit small. A major issue however is that there are no vents in the backseat for climate control. This is especially noticeable in the winter. In order to keep my daughter warm driving in the mountains in the winter, we have to keep the front unbearably hot in order to circulate enough heat to keep her barely warm enough. We typically have to keep a blanket in the back seat for anyone to use in the winter when temperatures fall into the 30s. Switching to summer, the back seat can stay somewhat cool if the vents are pointed towards the back. Depending on where one sits, the front seats can block some of the airflow and it can be uncomfortably warm at times especially if sitting on the side of the Jeep that the sun is hitting. In the hottest part of the summer, we usually have to run the A/C at 3/4 full blast and on recirculate to keep the back seat comfortable. see full Jeep Wrangler review

Even tho there are rear seats, I would never ride in back, too small back there. see full Jeep Wrangler review

It has the ability to go back and forth but not tilt the base seat. Firm but not being able to adjust the angle (like electric 10 way) makes a difference for tall and full frame people. I will be looking to adjust angle asap. see full Jeep Wrangler review
