Has some problems

2008 Jeep Wrangler X 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


I have owned a few Jeeps and this one does have a comfortable ride compared to the others. Mine is a right hand drive, I use to deliver mail. Any snow at all and I have to use 4 wh. drive or the right rear just spins. With 4 wheel I have had no problem. Auto. trans. feels "soft". Will roll backwards on the slightest incline when you take your foot off the brake and you are in Drive. Have to use a lot of throttle to force a downshift when climbing any grade. Leaks in around top of doors. Rear window washer hose comes loose and sprays fluid all over the interior. Engine is noisy when you first start it at 20 degrees or below. Steering damper is shot at 16,000 miles. Tires wear fast.

Best Features

Right hand drive.

Worst Features

Better quality tires than the Goodyears. Needs a better steering stabilizer. Needs better speakers than what it has.
