I will keep this YJ until the DMV pulls my license due to old age
Exhaust manifold cracked at 60,000 miles. Dealer notified, but dealer elected to put off service until I could leave vehicle for at least four to five days. When I left the vehicle at 80,500 miles for injector cleaning, dealer insisted that I had not reported manifold problem until after 80,000 mile emissions warranty had expired.
Automatic transmission pulled and serviced at 120,000 after foaming up en route to Las Vegas from L.A. (112 degree F weather, of course).
Radiator replaced at 125,000 miles, 70% restricted.
This truck performs extremely well as daily driver and fully capable off-road vehicle, handling obstacles and trails that would make anyone pucker up.
Suspension is not stiff, and other than slight "speedboating over whitecaps" on wavy stretches of freeway at certain speed range (about 25mph), the ride is as good as many cars on the road, at normal driving speeds up to 80mph.
4.0L engine is powerful and runs like new, even after 130,000 with regular oil changes and recommended service.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
