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


We have owned our Jeep for a little over 1 year and are in the process of having it towed for the 4th time back to the dealer. Three times for the throttle body light and once for a problem we have heard referred to as the death wobble. The entire front end shook so violently that it rendered the vehicle uncontrollable and impossible to hold on to the steering wheel. The Throttle body issue although not dangerous leaves me without transportation and Jeep wants me to buy an upgraded warranty to pay for my own rental. At best the vehicle is unreliable and uncertainty steals the fun out of driving it. The door hinges are rusting under the paint and causing the paint to bubble. Lemon. Run

Best Features

handles the sand at the beach like a champ. It was suppose to be our surfing get away vehicle

Worst Features

Fix the mechanical issues. People want to buy American but you are making it difficult. In the future I will buy a Toyota.
