I loved my Jeep until one year ago when things go wrong. It began when I noticed the transmission shaking during the time it would shift out while accelerating. It continued to worsen. My husband had the Jeep placed in the shop. The mechanic advised that the torc converter was worn out. We replaced the torc converter ($600.00). Everything was a go, until coming home from vacation six months later, shaking continued. Contacted mechanic, of course warranty expired, the torc converter was fine, but the transmission was causing shavings to be forced into the new torc converter, thus, ruining it. The mechanic re-built our transmission ($1200.00) versus a new transmission ($2000.00). Let me add that we had a new baby on the way!! Just to clarify why we went with the $1200.00 other than the $2000.00. After second round of repairs, the Jeep was a go, again! Since the repair, the control that determines when the Jeep shifts into overdrive has broken. Luckily, it was covered in the warranty for the transmission, so no costs. But, in order to get it back into perfect timing, it's all trial and error. The Jeep has been in the shop a grand total of eight times for things relating to the transmission.
One more problem, the window up and down control as broken and been replaced twice.
Let me add, my husband and I are both very particular with our vehicles. We do not add wear and tear other than everyday use. We keep up with maintenance and appearance.
