1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.0 I-6 (not a V-6)
Most fun you can have driving without having sex
Computer went out.
Exhaust manifold cracked.
Soft top bracket in the back fell off.
Hood light bulb keeps blowing.
Tape player had to be replaced.
Catalytic converter had to be replaced.
Currently, sometimes the instrument panel shuts down until I hit a bump, then it will work again for a while.
I love this Jeep and would recommend it to anyone, but the best bet is to get one that is still under factory warranty like I did because things are bound to go wrong... it's a Chrysler product after all. But since the Germans took it over, DAIMLER-CHRYSLER, I think they've improved the reliability.
Don't even THINK about buying a pre-1997 Jeep! Please! These new ones are so much better and more reliable. Anyway, had a few problems, nothing that kept it from running, just a little noisy and tempermental at times. Good rig overall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1998 Wrangler and have had similar problems. I had a 2 manifolds crack and my Catalytic convert is making all kinds of noise of course 1 year after the warranty expired, but other than than I love my jeep also. I have several friends who own pre-1998 jeeps and they have driven mine and say they would not own another pre-1998!!
