SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Four door, Good and Marginal; two-door Acceptable and Poor

Five stars, front impact protection

optional side airbags

The safety of the 2008 Jeep Wrangler has increased with its introduction of optional side airbags.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rates both two- and four-door Wranglers at five stars for front-impact protection. Side-impact data is unavailable from the NHTSA, but the private Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates both front and side impact protection. Wrangler Jeep two-doors get “good” ratings for front-impact safety and “poor” protection for side impacts; four-doors get “acceptable” front-impact ratings and “marginal” side-impact ratings.

Cars.com points out that there are "optional side airbags," which are placed in the seats, providing a higher level of safety than the 2008 Wranglers without these airbags.

There are numerous safety features included on the standard Jeep Wrangler 2008--many that come in handy for its off-road purposes, such as stability control and traction control. It also features anti-lock brakes and two flavors of four-wheel drive: one suited for more normal use, the other for hardcore off-roading.


As SUVs go, the 2008 Jeep Wrangler provides good ratings for safety, especially if buyers opt for the additional side airbags.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
