Great off road for a while then a headache
Well first at around 45000 miles the Automatic Transmission went out after I got stuck in a mud hole. It went out because the vent hose had fallen away from the firewall, and acted like a straw. Sucking in the water. I then had it rebuilt. Then it went out twice after that. The last time it was because the torque converter went to pieces and locked it up. Now the transmission it going out with a bang. Its' making a funny grinding noise. Therefore it must be rebuilt again. But, I am sad to say that it will be the last time because before it goes out again. I am going to get rid of the most problematic thing in my life. That darn Jeep. Besides the transmission my passenger side seat stopped folding foward when by pulling the strap on the seat. Now you have to reach underneath and force down a lever which folds the seat forward.
It seems like every time that I fix the strange Jeep problems. Something else seems to go wrong with it. All tougher the little jeep has been good, but quite weird.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
