Junk Each and Every Part
From the first week we owned it we experienced fuel pump failure. The problem was never corrected by the dealer and would come and go.
The bakes and rotors were replaced four times before hitting 30,000 miles. Three times it was done at the manufactures expense. Later we discovered that Chrysler mandated Raybestis Life time pads for replacement. These pads are made of a much harder substance than the factory rotors. Thus the rotors will warp every time. Now they are settling a class action lawsuit as a result of this defect.
At 50,000 miles the number one exhaust valve froze shut and the entire motor needed a top end re-build. Costly, “ $1200”.
The Jeep is a sturdy, roomy vehicle, but the biggest money pit in the USA. If you like spending money I highly recommend buying one. My next SUV is a Toyota or a Volvo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
