2007 Jeep Wrangler X 3.8L from North America
Chrysler is ruining the Jeep!
Two intermediate steering shafts went bad below 4,000 miles.
Cam Shaft sensor went out at 2,000 miles.
Front driver's side rotor came apart at 3,200 miles.
Soft top leaked in three areas along the stitch seams.
Recalled for stalling issue.
Dash board easily scratched by just wiping it off with a soft cloth.
I was totally in love with this Jeep when I bought it.
However, within the first 1,000 miles I grew to hate it.
Several trips to the dealership for repairs and spending countless hours at the dealer were enough for me.
I've owned several Chrysler vehicles that all had many issues. After this I vow to never buy another Chrysler product until quality improves.
Had shuttering issues at speeds around 35-40mph (possible torque converter issue)
The only great thing about the Jeep was the nice factory stereo with subwoofer.
Interior is terrible, cheap plastic that scratches way too easily.
I do have to say that the 3.8L is quite peppy when paired with the factory 4.10 gears.
Soft top is total junk, three leaks within the first three months of ownership.
Seats were not too horrible other than wearing quickly where the stitching comes together (fraying).
I've owned Jeeps over the years and this JK is by far the worst in quality out of all of them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
Review Date: 25th September, 2007
Please be diligent to note the CORRECT YEAR of the vehicle.
2007's (JK's) have the 3.8L engine and all of the woes of an all-new wrangler. I have a 2006 (TJ) Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited which has the 4.0 inline 6 cyl. It is important not to misinform others, because until 2007, Jeep CJ's, YJ's, and TJ's have been remarkably reliable. With all-new models comes a whole new set of problems. Thanks.
Remarkably reliable? Has the author of the last comment read any of the other owners surveys? Or is he just comparing Wranglers w/Chevys?
I'm curious because not only is the year wrong, but 4.10 gears only come on the Rubicon -- not the X. So it would seem that this is a 2007 JK Wrangler Rubicon. To the writer of this review... maybe you could get this moved to the right area and corrected??
Also I'd like to know more about the problem with the half-shaft. Was it a clunk in the steering when the engine was warm in particular? My JK does that too.
Looking over this review more carefully, I found that he has it entered as an '07. For some reason it has been posted in the '06 area. Otherwise, the axle ratio of the X is 3.73. The Rubicon is 4.10.
