I wouldn't buy anything else


At 140,000 miles, a thermostat stuck closed, and caused the radiator to blow off a plastic connector.

At 145,000 miles, injector o-rings leaking.

At 150,000 miles, the parking brake cables froze.

A hose-clamp on the fuel pump is loose, causing hard starts.

General Comments:

I love my Jeep. It's gone through almost every mud hole I've brought it to.

The 4.0 engine has plenty of power, even though it's the earlier renix fuel injection system. The AW4 transmission has no problems, they've been known to go for 400,000 miles.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
