I've had my Jeep for around 11 years and it's always been reliable. We've definitely been stuck a few times [I really wish mine was 4WD] but the Jeep loves the dirt roads At 160,000 miles now, the only problem I've had with it is that the air conditioner (maybe?) is leaking underneath the passengers front seat and behind it. I ripped up the carpet and found out that the floor is badly rusted. There are some small holes where you can see the ground & it spits up mud when driving, so I covered it with a floor mat. It doesn't effect the performance so it's all good. Great great truck. I'll be very sad when she dies, which I doubt will be for a while.
It's manly looking, but not cocky-frat boy manly. Very reliable and fun. And the front seats are very comfy.
Noisy, bouncy and fun to drive. The
inline six is an excellent engine and
mine leaks no oil at 170,000 miles. It
appears to have been partially
overhauled around 70,000 miles. Repairs
cost a fortune. Replaced tire rods,
clutch, brake work, cat converter.
parts are ridiculously expensive,
double what most cars' parts cost in
most cases. LAbor is high because of
design as well. Windsheild wiper motors
are pieces of crap.
Engine is solid, more than enough for
what is really a small- light truck.
Handling is better than any other SUV,
off-road capabilities are solid.
Just a handy little truck.
windsheild wiper system- have had this
fail on two jeeps. Cat converters break
up due to rough ride. also, floor
sweats on passenger side when exhaust
gets hot. This is annoying as any
papers left on floor will become
saturated and soggy. Make the parts
cheaper- they are too expensive.
