1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.0 from North America
The Wrangler is a fun vehicle to own and drive
At about 5,000 miles the power steering fluid leaked. The repair was covered under the warranty.
At about 10,000 miles I noted the gages did not read correctly. A recall was in effect for this. The dealer handled the reapir at no cost to me.
At about 32,000 miles the fan belt was warn. I replaced it myself, at a cost of about $12.
At about 80,000 miles the 'Check Engine' light came on. I replaced the rear oxygen sensor myself at a cost of about $75.
At 98,000 the engine is hard starting when it is cold. I think the fuel pump is failing.
I think the Wrangler handles very well. It is an excellent off-road as well as a street vehicle.
I think the road noise is excessive.
I feel the gas mileage could be better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
