I bought my Jeep two years ago with
174k miles on it (yep, you read that
right). In those two years, i've done
routine maintance, and replaced the
driver side wheel bearings (about a
grand at a Jeep delear). NOTHING else
ever went wrong with it, but i suspect
the other owner's might have repaired
the brunt of it. I'm just now starting
to have issues- but the Jeep is about
to hit 200K! Beware, they were made to
last, and made to be run into the
ground, but when they get old - their
repairs are NOT cheap! My problem is
viscous coupler - OUCH - and sway bars. Will be
sad to see her go, but can't sink
money into her.
Best seating ever! Computer that tells
you EVERYTHING. Rides nice, even ten
years later, handles good for ten year
old vehicle. Got decent gas mileage
(about 17-20 mpg highway, 15-17 city)
for age. If you take care of it, it
takes care of you.
When the problems do occur- they are
EXPENSIVE. Other problems were
hopefully corrected in newer Jeeps- as
i plan to buy a newer Jeep.
