2003 Jeep Wrangler Sahara from North America
I still love my jeep!!!
Jeep jolting on the down-shift.
A/C not cooling.
I've had identical problems with my automatic transmission jolting when slowing down. I'm not accustomed to this hard downshift, but if this is the normal operation of my 2003 jeep sahara, so be it as long as this does not lead to bigger problems. Even though I have not driven my jeep much within the last two years, it will still cost you for not driving it.
My a/c recently stop cooling and the dealer said even though I don't drive much, I should still take the jeep out for a drive and test run the equipment. Problems could develop for just staying in the garage. I'm unsure what the exact problem may be. Any body know where the condenser and orifice might be on a jeep wrangler?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My 2003 Sahara's transmission jolted on when coming to a stop to. It acted weird since day one, but I only kept it for 11,000 miles. I went to a new Liberty and the tranny acted more civilized. However I missed the fun of the Wrangler, and went back to a 1995 YJ model with a manual transmission.
(Had to replace its tranny - but love the Jeep!)

My 2003 Wrangler Sport had the same transmission jolt when coming to a stop at around 17,000 miles. Took it to the dealer and they fixed it in less than 1 hour. They said it needed the computer resetting.
It now has 155,000 miles and it has never happened again. Love the Jeep, very dependable...
