We bought ours in 2001 October. It stopped on us a year after we purchased it. It just stopped in the middle of the road but they fixed it. The maintenance cost started to get high in 2012, 2013 and so will be in 2014, with expected repair cost of 5000.
We have 135K miles now and it still looks great inside and out but maintenance cost is going up.
We are seriously thinking not to do any more repairs and just let it fall apart. What do you think?

We must have been lucky, we had a pretty good experience with our jeep.
At 86,000 miles it was smashed by a tree in our driveway.
We had only spent money on brakes, tires and a water pump.
Otherwise it ran great and filled our needs.
I'm headed out looking for another one to replace ours.
I"ve been looking at reviews and no matter what you own; people have trouble.
Just try researching other cars!
It's a shame manufacturers won't stand behind their cars when it's pretty obvious there are issues with some parts.

Loved the car as soon as I saw. I even paid STICKER PRICE!!!! I thought it was worth every penny. Not even 1 week in the check engine comes on.... I have put in almost more than 4-5K in some normal maintenance but some that are just annoying... For one thing it never starts right, always cranks over and over! I am one that hates when ppl ride their brakes, so I know I dont but the brake pads go so fast. I had to replace the routers three times already. Now its starting to stall on me. I just put 1500 into about two weeks ago and now the radiator just went the other day while i was driving. I ONLY HAVE 75,000 Miles on it. over a 100k would make sense. Looking to just trade it in, with a loss.
More power for the 4.7-liter V8 and three new trim levels (SE, Sport and Overland) are on tap for this year. Also, several important safety and convenience options such as side curtain airbags, power-adjustable pedals, a tire-pressure monitoring system and automatic windshield wipers debut this year.

My 2002 has been awesome but just the other day while driving it simply stalled. After sitting for a while it started and the stalled again. Replaced the crank shaft sensor, it ran again for a coup?...
