Oh yeah, Mine is also a Loaded up Sahara....brother and sister sounds like ;-)Report it
Sorry to hear you have similar problems. I now have 5,000 miles on it and the engine still knocks! My knock is not that loud but I live in an area that is very flat. I hate driving down the road and wondering if people are looking at me because they like the nice black jeep coming down the road or because they think it sounds like junk! I have called Jeep but only to report the horrible customer service that I had to deal with. I am going to bring it back to another dealer to see if the problems can be resolved. If not I will call Jeep to let them know and look into the lemon laws in my state. Good luck!Report it
Update: Under 4,000 miles and needed a new alternator, throttle pulley, new seat cover, and missing insulation across windshield. Engine still sounds funny. Plus dealer put a huge dent in the hood that was too bad for repair so I needed a new hood! Two friends of mine have the same Wrangler and no problems...guess I just got the lemon!Report it
Have you called Jeep? You should call 877-426-5337 and file a complaint and give them all the details. They seem to think I am the only one having these problems but I have heard of many.Report it
I hate to admit it because I LOVE Wranglers. I have owned 9 of them. But yours and mine must have been built side by side on the assembly line. I have all the same problems plus more. I had only had mine a few weeks and the trans line had a hole rubbed in it and I lost all the fluid, Had to leave it sitting at the dealer 9 days waiting for a back ordered line. My engine now and for the last 3 or 4,000 miles knocks really bad when going up hills, it's so loud it's scary. Hopefully they can figure it out. I would like to know how yours is currently and how many miles you have.Report it
