Love the car (except for the wheel shaking), hate the lease
From almost the first day I had it, the steering wheel on the Jeep shook when I traveled at over 50 MPH. After ignoring it for a couple of months, I noticed that in addition to the steering wheel, the passenger seat now shook (when empty) as well. I took it to the dealer and was told that the right front rim was bent, and was causing the shaking. I'm assuming the rim was bent before I purchased the car, as I haven't been in an accident, but I couldn't prove it to anyone so I didn't bring that up. I shelled out about $120 for a new rim and assumed all would be well. Of course, the wheel still shakes just like before. I've returned to ignoring it.
I'm leasing the car for (something slightly short of highway robbery) too much. I owed a bit on my trade in and it's been the death of me in this lease. I'd love to get out of it, but "car lease" seems to be code for temporary slavery. I give up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
