120,000 miles and many many problems

2006 Jeep Wrangler SE 2dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


I am a very maintenance conscious person, oil changes every 3000 miles, tranny fluid, antifreeze, everything. I have had so many issues with jeep. I have never had this jeep off road at all, i use it to drive back and forth to work. I have had to have two engine rebuilds, the manual transmission rebuilt, the transfer case rebuilt and many other engine problems including repeat censor problems. Most of my problems happened while it was still under warranty but i spent more time in rental cars then i did driving my own car it seems like. the death wobble was fixed when i bought aftermarket parts but jeep knows this is a problem and don't fix it.
very poor quality gets maybe 12 mpg.

Best Features

I like the looks of the jk and when it is running i love the 6 speed manual transmission. the four wheel drive works great in our harsh winters.

Worst Features

Quality of the vehicle. The jeep seems cheaply built and lacks major power and mpg. The death wobble is a known problem and is easily fixed with after market parts, if others can figure this out why can't the car maker? really need to look at quality on future builds

What after market parts did you buy to fix the dreaded death wobble?
