2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)
Problems with 3.8 engine can be costly. Had to replace intake manifold gasket 3 times in 5 years. Dealer did it once. About $600 each time. At just over 100k developed clicking noise in lower part of engine. Dealer wanted $600 to pull oil pan to investigate. Seem to suggest selling to avoid costly repair or replacement of engine. Hinted at bearings. Online seen more of the same with the engine. Poor decision by Jeep to use that engine.

I ignored the fact that consumer reports rated this year jeep the worst they have ever rated a car in all their years of testing. It burns oil from the day it was purchased. Tons of electrical problems. Crysler refused a recall even though this was a huge problem for many. Jeep engine is too small and can't get out of its way. As far as stability Google "death wobble ". You'll thank me.
