2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 3.8 from North America


Let down


So far the Jeep has been relatively good.

The 3.8 leaves a little to be desired in the power department.

The reason I write this review however, is the problem with the hinges. The hinge rust would be understandable in the pin dept, however the rust that is forming under the hinge paint is unacceptable. I have it on 6 hinges on my Rubicon. The four door hinges and the 2 hood hinges. If they were scratched or perforated, I would understand the rust forming; these however are not PERFORATED AS OF YET, but the paint is BUBBLING and it is obvious that there is a problem BREWING under the the paint like cancer.

The Chrysler district manager refused to cover this under warranty, stating that it is not perforated!!! I am sorry; if there is something going on under the paint that is otherwise sealed, that would indicate a problem to the normal user.

I think Chrysler/Jeep has become so cheap that they refuse to back their product. It is a indicator of even more looming problems with the auto industry. They willingly take the money of the average American, not only after they buy the car/vehicle, but afterward a handout from the taxpayer, and then refuse to back the product when an obvious defect is identified. I am sorry; if I don't do my job, I get fired this. Obviously is not the case, at least not in the auto industry.

The rust problem with Jeep hinges is very common... they all rust because of their design. It's been this way for decades. For this reason, aftermarket companies and Mopar sell replacement hinges in a variety of finishes.

As long as people still want the classic style low-cost hinges, so they can fold their windshields, and take off their doors... rust will be an issue. The best thing to do is keep them lubricated and the paint waxed. At the first sign of chipped paint or corrosion, apply touch-up paint to the area.

Although I know rust isn't nice... this isn't really a big deal.

Or Chrysler could stop cheaping it out and galvanise the hinges? That is a cheap and proven solution that would not be difficult to implement. Everyone else has been doing it for years, but unfortunately the American big 3 lag far behind in this department.

Wranglers are notorious for rusting, at least in the mid-west and north east. I've seen many with rusted hinges. But, more disturbing is the rusting frames you see on most 10-15 year old Jeeps that otherwise look decent.

Great driving feeling.

Nice options to remove the top of the car. Front/ back.

Strong engine, good torque.

Fantastic off road: Desert, jungle, rock, mountains, anywhere is home for this Wrangler.

Can't trade it in for anything else.

General Comments:

Look to agree with y'all. Owning a Jeep is something that no other car is.. I am on my 3rd Jeep.

I owned a 2000 Jeep Wrangler, a 07 2 door JK, and now I own a 08 4 door JK.

People complain about Jeeps not being this or that in comfort. True Jeepers know the advances that Jeep has made in its years.

I love my jeep even though it leaks, doesn't get good mpg, is not always comfy... it is a Jeep thing and most people don't understand..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have been a Jeep enthusiast and owner since the Wrangler was introduced as a 1987 model back in 1986.

I love Jeeps, but a HATE that stupid "It's a Jeep thing - You wouldn't understand" slogan.

It was probably dreamed up by some Madison Avenue advertising person who has never even owned a Wrangler.
