Poorly built with sub-par parts
Brake calipers locked up on the front end the first day I bought this rolling money pit.
I have replaced the power steering pump 4 times in the last 6 months.
The driver side and passenger side power window motors both went out within one week of each other.
The steering stabilizer was replaced 2 months ago.
The heater and A/C have been worked on multiple times. (6+)
Main computer completely replaced.
It is now in the shop yet again for the A/C and also the cruise control.
Overall I love this vehicle, but it has turned into a labor of love. It is one of the most comfortable vehicles I have ever owned, and drives and responds great to acceleration.
However, this vehicle is not for somebody with a light wallet. This machine was poorly assembled with sub-par parts. I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone who is not prepared to dump quite a bit of money into it.
The smartest thing I have done is buy the extended warranty, which has luckily covered almost everything. (I still have to pay the $200 deductible every time it hits the shop doors, but has also saved me a lot of money.)
This vehicle looks great and is nice to drive, but be warned, YOU WILL SPEND A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY MAINTAINING THIS VEHICLE! I will not buy another Jeep due to this experience, but I will drive this one until it dies, which could be tomorrow for all I know.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
