2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Bought new. Problems from day 1. Had to register complaints with ntsb. Car would shut off driving down the road. Did this at freeway speeds. Cracked header; Chrysler said it must have gotten wet while hot-this is trail rated? Rear brakes go out every 12k miles. 4wd transfer cable broke. Motor is underpowered, struggles at highway speeds forget about passing. Avg 14-17 mpg. Rust spots. Automatic transmission shifts randomly. The body sheet metal is extremely thin. Interior panels scratches easy. Rear seats sit straight up. Headrest extremely hard. 4th and last Jeep (3rd wrangler), done with the 'its a Jeep thing'. If you just have to get a Jeep: buy a cj-and a daily driver with the extra money

Best Features

The two most memorable moments with this Jeep are the day I bought it and the day I sold it. They do hold their value as people fall in love with their looks. Straight axles, DANA front & rear.

Worst Features

Get away from the drive by wire. Remove all electronics you can- most of the Jeeps problems stem from electronics. Use a different motor, HEMI or diesel? Thicker sheet metal.
