I have had probably 5 Jeeps in my life... This one is one of the best! I have almost 10,000 miles on it now and haven't had any problems at all. The build quality is equal to if not better then my previous car (Acura TSX). The new engine is perfect, I use the Jeep to tow my 20ft boat to and from the lake with no lack of power.
We drove a 2003 Honda Pilot for the last 10 years. It was the darling of the automotive press when we bought it. So that is the yardstick. When going to test drive the Rubi, I expected it to be loud on the highway. It isn't. In fact it's pleasantly quiet, much quieter than the Pilot. Huh? Yes. Every review about Wranglers goes on and on about how crude they are. We did not find this to be true. The UConnect features work perfectly and intuitively. We're happy with the Wrangler and enjoy the fun it brings on our local trails and off road parks.
I bought right hand drive for post office. Ordered it. Loved the looks, loved the drive but it wasn't a month old when I had to replace all the 4 ply tires due to flats!!! Who puts 4 ply tires on this type of vehicle... Then all was great for first 25,000. Miles. My engine light came on, then airbag light came on. I have replaced brake pads 3 times at this point. Take it to dealership get the light issue fixed, I thought... Then something in steer wheel goes wrong, meanwhile engine light is back on. When all is said and done, I'm up to 40,000. Miles now with same issues. Seems this model jeep has electrical problems. I know about 5 different people with jeeps that are having same issues. Mine ended costing 2000.00. Because right hand drive does not get bumper to bumper warranty. I just want to say to jeep reps, you need to have a recall on this electrical problem. Been to many complaints on that alone. Dealerships know this but try to give every excuse in the world. Yes my jeep still looks great and I still like it but not sure I'd ever buy another.....I have a co worker that just bought 2015, she's having same electrical problems.
I bought my 2013 Jeep JKU new and currently have 40000 on the clock. Only a couple of warranty issues, other than that the Jeeps been outstanding. This is a fun vehicle to drive. We take it everywhere and leave the Honda Acccord in the garage. I look forward to climbing into to it every morning. Bottom line, if you want a fun vehicle that can tackle the tough stuff and still look buttoned down for a night out or at the office, get one!
Just got my 2013 Wrangler 4 days ago. Had a 2012 and it seems like a huge difference. Drove it to Wright Patterson and back this morning. All expressway and got 27.7 mpg. That's 65 almost all the way. Driving 55 is better yet. Love the new seats. Much more cushioning. Got the Alpine stereo and it's awesome. Plenty of room for me and the dog. Took the back seat out, so my next date has to ride in the back since the dog has the front.
