Death Wobble

Vehicle

2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I really enjoyed the Jeep for the first six months that I owned it but at approximately 12,800 miles, while driving down a freeway at roughly 65 mph I hit a small bump in the road and the entire front end of the vehicle started to shudder to the point that it was almost impossible to control. I took the vehicle to the dealership and after checking they advised that I had a leaking steering damper which was replaced under warranty. After doing a lot of research, I discovered that this is a condition commonly referred to as "Death Wobble" which appears to be a recurring problem with Wranglers. I don't feel that the vehicle is safe to operate and I will be getting rid of it.

Favorite Features

Removable Freedom Top.

Suggested Improvements

Cure "Death Wobble". More power, 202 h.p. is not adequate for this vehicle.
