2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport 3.6L V6


I love my Jeep and wouldn't want anything else... Except a 4 door JKU


After 4 years of owning the Wrangler, I was at a gas station and had just filled up when I tried to crank the Jeep. It turned over and almost cranked, then shut off. After several attempts, it wouldn't even turn over. I installed a new battery just a few months prior, so I didn't think that was the issue. I got on some Jeep forums and found that I should unhook the positive side of the battery to reset the computer. I did and it cranked right up. I still don't know what happened, but 2 months later, it's doing fine.

General Comments:

I purchased my 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport from the dealer in 2013 after lots of research. I was well aware of the not so great gas mileage, and after I put a lift and 35" tires on it, my gas mileage went from around 18-19 MPG to about 13 MPG. I still have no regrets, and if I wanted good gas mileage, I would have bought an Accord. I love the Jeep and I'm very happy with my decision to buy it.

It has plenty of power, even with the bigger tires. It's very capable off road and even in the snow (the 3 times it has snowed in Tennessee since 2013).

I've owned a 1988 and 1993 YJ and really enjoyed them, but eventually needed a truck. After a few years of engine work and 3 rear ends, it was time for my Silverado to go, so I purchased my Jeep in 2013. The only thing I'm not crazy about with the 2 door Wrangler is the trunk space, but I knew what I was getting when I bought it. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford a 4 door Wrangler at the time, but when it comes time to hand down my 2 door to my son, daddy will get a 4 door Wrangler.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2.6 Pentastar


Too much fun!!!



General Comments:

I love it! I was apprehensive trading in my FJ Cruiser for the Chrysler/Fix It Again Tony Jeep, but so far no problems/defects.

Compared to the FJ:

1. The Wrangler is simply more fun to drive.

2. The roof comes off easily - a bug plus in So. Cal.

3. It's more capable off road. The better outward visibility and smaller size makes a big difference on narrow off road trails. With front and rear lockers on, I haven't found a hill I can't climb.

4. The more comfortable seating position is more upright, and the seats are much more supportive.

5. Surprisingly quiet given that it's a rag top.

6. The Pentastar V-6 is awesome. Broad power band, pulls strongly at any RPM.

7. I replaced all the OEM speakers - now it rocks!!!!

So far gas mileage is 20 MPG - city or highway, 55 or 70 mph. Not bad for a tank.

Still loving my Wrangler. Last week I took it up a local road called Miller Jeep Trail. 2 years ago my FJ Cruiser had to be winched up the most difficult section. My Wrangler just motored up with no problems. Awesome!

Update on my review. At 21,000 miles, check engine light came on. My Jeep needs a new oil pressure sensor - $850 repair, not covered under warranty. Fiat/Chrysler has known about the problem for several years, but hasn't fixed it. Who says "they don't make them like they used to?" This is 1971 Pinto quality.

The car is still fun to drive and is a monster off-road, just don't expect Toyota reliability. $850 is more than I spent on my 4Runner the entire 250,000 miles I owned it.

2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport B 3.6L Pentastar V6


Good on/off road... but unreliable


2500km. Leak in hard top, dealer replaced faulty seals.

4500km. Would not start, wireless control module replaced (took 1.5 weeks for repair), could not use. Had to fight Chrysler for a rental.

11000km. Alternator replaced.

11100km. Water pump replaced.

11500km. Lost engine power and shut off while driving, lost all power. Started back up next time.

12000km. Would not start, keys needed reprogramming. Undriveable.

16000km. New leak in soft top, dealer could not find.

General Comments:

The Jeep drives great when it's working, but has become so unreliable that it is only used to get me to work now. I have used the 4x4 in snow and once lightly off road. It works great. I am the first owner of the Jeep, and it was custom factory ordered.

These Wranglers are much better on road than any Jeep before. Engine power is more than adequate. Unfortunately I will be selling this before the warranty is up.

I have previously owned a 1998 TJ, and it was bulletproof.

I will not trust taking the Jeep anywhere far, as I do not want to be stuck.

The TJs & the YJs were indeed bulletproof, especially with the 4.0 liter inline six.

Give me a new 1995 YJ any day :)
