2001 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0 from North America
Was driving the other day on interstate about 70mph... took an exit and made loop, I came to a yield and stopped for oncoming traffic... as I started to take off, it sounded like something in rear end, like gears... the sound the wheel makes as it spins on Wheel of Fortune... would best describe it... I stopped and did it again, and it made the same sound... I had to go so I just drove into the next parking lot... stopped and drove away again and again, and could not hear it anymore... it hasn't done it since... What could this be?
I checked the oil in rear end... oil actually comes out when I pulled plug, so I put it back in... oil looked really dark but was not gritty or anything... Didn't hesitate, just made a noise... any idea's?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

If the oil is real dark, obviously you need to replace it. When I got my 2001 Wrangler, I replaced all the fluids. My Jeep has had no problems except a leak in the left rear axle seal. I see so many people complaining about these cars, but I had a 2003 Land Rover Discovery. Now that was a piece. It was a toilet on wheels with leather seats. EVERYTHING breaks on them.
