2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Wife had to have a jeep and she picked an 2010 3.8 with the 42RLE. Performed engine flush and amsoil signature series for the oil. The motor spun a bearing 2 thousand miles before the warranty was gone. So brand new long block was installed after not having the POS for a month. The 3.8 is a minivan motor which eats oil and spins bearings like there is no tomorrow. We are probably going to lift it a couple of inches, throw on some tires, dbag led light bar and sell it. Only way I would have a newer jeep now is if it had the hemi conversion or tdi conversion. American vehicles are junk and I laugh when I see so many people driving these jeeps as daily driver pavement pounders. Nothing like my old 1979 cj5 amc 4 speed with GMC 350 in it.

Updated Review.

It is still a total POS. Since the first review the transaction control has go e out. I just pulled the fuse to disable it. The CEL is on for evap. Leak. Maybe just need new gas cap, not sure. The vehicle will only start in neutral because a sensor in the tranny is bad. When it rains the seals leak, it is a hardtop. Now the carpet is moldy and the floorboards are rusty. Worst vehicle I ever owned.

Update. Still a pile. Evap leak somewhere so the dashboard says "gas cap". And the Dana 44 rear axle has now blown a seal and leaking.

2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

It's a vehicle I have always wanted, so I got a 2010 JKU and loved the look and treated it like a baby. Just before paying off the loan at 5 years, several expensive (each approx. $700) repairs became a concern within a period of 6 months: alternator, brake booster, screeching sound, and not starting. The last straw was a master cylinder and other repairs that the dealer said would cost about $1,000 to fix. I was done and asked for the keys so I could trade it in for a reliable Japanese vehicle. It was fun for about 4 years and I got $17,300 trade-in after 5 years and 56k miles.

2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have the soft top version, and wow, with the top down, it's so much fun, it just makes me smile and feel happy to drive around town.
With the top up, it's quieter than you might expect, but I prefer the top off every chance I can get.
The only thing I don't like about my Jeep is that it's absolutely terrible to drive on the freeway.
When I test drove it before I bought it, I really didn't spend much time driving it on the highway, but after living with it for a while, I sometimes wonder whether I made a good choice.
This is my one and only vehicle, and I think it makes a better second car than a primary one.
I find it terrifying on the freeway.


Best Features

Removable soft top. Rugged looks and performance. Pretty good stereo, you can hear it clearly even with the top off and going fast down the road. The heater is super powerful. Puts a smile on your face.


Worst Features

More power - the engine is kind of gutless.

Review

Been wanting a Jeep Wrangler for a long time.
Occasionally paruse the consumer reports and then it happened; a seeming nexus of all things good about the Wrangler came together in 2010.
So I went for it and have not looked back since.
The 2011 and 2012 models look like Jeep is trrying to get a broader customer base by making it gentler and kinder to the occupants.
A Jeep is a Jeep and should not be messed with unless adding accessories. Speaking of which, the 2010 Sport that I have was designed for add-on's; I'd rather do the stuff myself than buy factory installed.
Its my DD and my DFV (Daily Fun Vehicle).


Best Features

Steering Cabin feel Mileage was a nice surprise Hard top The endless array of things I can put on it

2010 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 2dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I purchased this JK on May 5,2011 and noticed battery light was on.
Then it was alt, then battery cable, then oil change etc...

Just the start of the delivery from Hell. Can't possibly get all the lies and bs on here. To make long story short today's date is June 14, 2011. I still have no air and according to corporate no date when they can get parts to fix problem. All I ever get is I can't tell you that I'm not authorized. I thought I bought a new vehicle. I feel like they used this Jeep for a parts vehicle of course they say no. But they can!
