I bought my Jeep used, paid book for it. Beautiful exterior/interior fully loaded minus sunroof. The following is a list of noted discrepancies or issues I've had by order of occurrence. 1. Garage door programmable buttons - are for looks only, at least mine can't be programmed. 2. The fuel gauge works from 3/4 tank and below only, when I fill it up, once the gauge hits 3/4 it immediately drops to Empty (the fuel light comes on too) 3. Rotors, pads, alternator (all replaced, and all expensive compared to other makes/models) 4. Replaced CAM SHAFT position sensor (idled rough, and kept jolting and dying) 5. ABS/Brake lights came on, Speedo went crazy, the engine died. It's still broke. SIGH
I love the exterior look, The 8-way power seats are nice. I like the layout of the dash, and accessories. It's very comfortable and the back seats fold down great for rear cargo. When you step out of a JEEP (that runs) you feel good about it.
Use better manufacturing. Start with brakes: pads/rotors/calipers, then better window door lock regulators. The PCM is so tied in with everything that when one component stops talks the whole body goes crazy, and just quits! This poses a serious safety issue. Go back to what you did pre-1999.
