sounds to me like you are disappointed you need to do normal maintenance. Water pumps don't last longer than 100k. The drive shaft sounds like an install problem - get a better mechanic. My 2003 has 172k and I've maintained it well - 1 front drive shaft, 1 water pump, both front control arm bushings, all 4 shocks, tires, radiator, AC relay, updated fan relay. Cars driven daily do wear out. Maintain it nd they will last forever. My 1995 Cherokee is going strong with 412k on the original engine/tranny. Can't beat a Jeep - if you take care of themReport it
Mine had the same problem with front driveshaft last year and I bought a CV joint kit at www.driveshaftfparts.com. So far, and after more than 10 uses, the DS has been performing smooth and my Jeep is the same rock climber as ever!Report it
