Summary:

Love it, hate it

Faults:

I have had the Heater/AC blower switch replaced or repaired at the dealer 4 times. Each time same problem, and last time switch fried! Went on-line and found hundreds of comments regarding this problem in several JEEP Wrangler and other JEEP models, yet no comments from JEEP and NO factory solution to this expensive recurring problem. Dealers latest response now that out of warranty is "things just wear out". This wears out for hundreds of people so why no fix from JEEP?

General Comments:

Otherwise LOVE my JEEP, but sick of shoddy parts and lack of engineering quality control and no response to the problem.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You mean I6 not V6. Jeep Wrangler TJs only came with I4 or I6...

:P (I'm a girl and I know that!).

General Comments:

I have wanted a jeep TJ since I started paying attention to cars. The TJ is my first car and I could not be any happier. The 4X4 can get you into anything and out of anything. It turns on a dime and accelerates quickly. Parking the TJ is a joke. I went with the 2.5L mainly for gas consumption and turned out to be better than I anticipated. The rumour of it being underpowered is untrue if you keep the car between 2500 and 3000 RPM. This car handles excellent in winter and is fantastic in summer. What more could you ask for than a truck when driving in 15 cm of snow, and a convertible when driving in midsummer heat. The beauty of it is you won't find another car like it on the road. It has kept its distinct style since its early ancestors. You Can't find a better all round car than the TJ. I love my jeep and will more than likely purchase more in the future.

Summary:

Great 4x4 that is also an excellent daily driver

Faults:

I now have a stubborn engine light, I think it is the oxygen sensor. Other than that, nothing.

General Comments:

I love this truck. PERIOD. I have never owned a car that was so reliable. This JEEP is by far the best car I ever purchased as far as dependability goes. I don't ever want to sell it.

1999 JEEP WRANGLER SPORT (6 cylinder 4.0 Liter)

This is a great do-it-all vehicle. Off-road it is superior, on road it's not bad. I highly recommend having a hard and soft top, as during the winter having a rear defrost option is key. I have been thru 4 winters and have over 110,000 miles on my baby, and the heater is awesome.

REPAIRS & SLIGHT DRAWBACKS-The soft-top is a bit loud on the highway, but turning up the volume takes care of that. The gas mileage is also not great and the ride is not the smoothest. The sway bar connects are a very poor design, when you need to replace them I strongly suggest installing after-market quick disconnects. I have replaced the oxygen sensor and shocks as well. I replaced the shocks at around 60k, but they didn't need to be, this was when I added a 2" spacer lift and the kit came with new shocks. Besides that, I've greased and changed the oil regularly and she's run great.

OVERALL-I would highly recommend a Jeep to anyone. They are a ton of fun, great off-road, good on road, and great in the snow. There's nothing like cruising around with the top and doors off in the summer... and chicks dig them!! I will be putting a plow on my Jeep as well as my dad has a plow on his and it pushes without issue.

I have a tj jeep 1989.

2 days ago the engine light went on. Only that light is on, not my oil or any other.

Why did it suddenly go on.
