Great looks, terrible performance
As of 1-14-2007 I have water in the oil and water pouring out the back of the block while running. It is looking like the entire block will need to be replaced. I didn't, but a Jeep because I wanted to spend a fortune driving it. I am not a wealthy man so this is just terrible.
Three door locks are screaming out in pain when locking or unlocking the doors, and the passenger door won't unlock period.
The brakes are fun.
The wipers went out for two years while the dealership told me it was a body control module and I had to pay 700.00 to fix it. I said no of course. Two years later I have it at a family members shop and a new kid on the block ran a simple diagnostic on the Jeep and the problem was a 18.00 dollar module. Which by the way, the dealership told me there was no wiper module and that everything was controlled by the body control module.
I have mixed from day one with this car. I loved the increase in power from a 4 cylinder, but the fuel just seems to pour right through this suv. I am getting 11.4 mpg.
The extended warranty I purchased has covered absolutely nothing that has gone wrong. It is amazing that any part that is more apt to fail is not covered. Isn't the whole point of offering an extended warranty to cover the vehichle front to back??? If a certain part is apt to fail then don't you think the manufacturer should fix the part to meet long term standards??? I know of no one who purchases a car for the sake of spending money fixing it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
