1997 Jeep Wrangler 4 cylinder from North America
Piece of junk
What's gone wrong, the question should be what hasn't? This piece of junk has spent more time in the repair bay than on the road.
The third month I had it the catalytic converter went (warranty), then the seats, then the manifold, then I started losing power. This was all under warranty and about the first six months.
Then all hell broke loose:
The radiator went three times.
The manifold went again.
The oil pressure sending units went 3 times.
The 4wd drive wouldn't engage right.
The fan clutch.
The water pump.
The temp gone twice.
Then the housing unit went.
The list goes on and on.
I bought the car because I always wanted one, now it's my worst nightmare. Every 6 months it costs me between 600 to a grand and the dealer always tells me the same old story "these things just happen". Rubbish, this is the biggest piece of crap I've ever owned. I've had 4 techs. tell me to dump it, the car is that bad.
I work at a dealer now and tell everyone who asks what I think of Jeep.
IT'S THE BIGGEST WASTE OF YOUR MONEY. CHRYSLER DOESN'T TAKE CARE OF IT'S CUSTOMERS.
If you want a Jeep, go and buy a model kit, it will last longer.
I'm trading it in and I'm glad to be rid of this piece of crap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You have 4 cylinder Jeep, what do you expect, you pay cheap, you get cheap. What you should do is save your pennies and get a Sport or Sahara, something with a real motor in it. The Jeep is the only vehicle from Chrysler that usually doesn't have problems. I own a Sport and it is a terrific vehicle, you just got a lemon.
