1987 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.2 Liter Inline 6 from North America
Not a good daily driver
Clutch had to be replaced at 104,000 miles, very costly $900.
4 Wheel Drive Vacuum motors doesn't work.
Steering Wheel is very loose.
Key is very hard to turn/ get to work.
Left blinker does not shut off automatically.
High beams don't work.
Horn wiring is loose.
Needed new intake gasket.
Power Steering pump went.
Jeep is hard to start.
Choke does not work.
Heater core leaks.
Fuel Odor in car.
This car has been nothing but trouble for me. The only time I actually enjoy it is with the top off. I have put over $2500 into this car in the last year and a half. I hate it during the winter, but for some reason during the summer, I just love it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You have to keep in mind that you are not buying a new car. In time, things start to wear out. There aren't many 87 vehicles, Jeeps especially, that are "showroom" quality. Just be patient, spend a few bucks, give it some TLC and you'll have a great Jeep. I am also a fellow 87 Wrangler owner who purchased a used Jeep with problems. And I have to keep in mind that it is used.
