It is a good vehicle overall and I would buy another!
'Bucking' stopped with replaced oxygen sensor.
Had leaking radiator replaced.
Brakes locked up in rainy weather.
Radio needed replacement.
Catalytic converter was replaced.
Rubber seals around the soft-top doors wear out and water leaks in.
Zippers on soft-top doors get worn out and go off track.
Sway bars wear out at 54,000 miles.
Brakes replaced at 52,000 miles.
The jeep generally runs well and is fun to drive.
It is great in snow and easy to park.
The cabin is noisy and you can't hear the radio on highway travel.
The 4 cylinder does fair on hills.
The soft top is expensive to replace as well as just the doors.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
