2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Bought a brand new 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara JL, 477 miles later and less than 30 days of ownership it was in the shop... and has been there for 29 straight days. The check engine light came on, multiple codes were thrown, one was multiple cylinders misfiring. The “technicians” are unable to actually work on the Jeep because it is so new that they are all untrained on it. They have to trouble shoot over the phone with a STAR technician. The engine is currently torn down and they are still unable to find the root cause of the issue.

I’m currently working with FCA to get my money back since this is clearly a lemon.

DO NOT BUY this vehicle!! If for some reason you just have to, make sure you know your Buy Back and Lemon Law rights and prepare yourself to be disappointed.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Feel like were making a lease payment on an invisible car. Seems like these JL's are plagued with issues and jeep has no support to fix them. Wish I could say it was one specific thing but the dealer just keeps throwing guesswork and parts at it only to have the check engine light come right back on again.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Day 1 - the a/c randomly stops and blows hot air; many times it would not Start- this is day 1 —-DAY 2 failed to go into reverse. Back to dealership - several days with loaner and they replaced the fuel pump on my vehicle that has less than 100 miles on it - now with still with less than 1000 miles on it, it goes into auto park mode and will not go into reverse!!

2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Bought my Wrangler in January of 2018. Have now had it for 8 months and it has been driven 9000 miles. To date, I have not experienced any of the serious problems mentioned by some of the other owners. Actually, I have not had any quality or reliability issues with it. Pros: Off road versatility. Cons: Hard top wind noise, radio frequently reboots, has a recall for the cruise control, FCA has advised not to use it.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


Review

If you are going to purchase a JL or Rubicon, I would suggest having the dealership place the vehicle on a lift so that you can examine all of the welds. Pay special attention to the track bar bracket welds, rear sway bar welds, and other welds for body mount points and others. Many owners are finding out the hard way that their welds have a high amount of porosity (pinholes), weld slag, and welds that are not properly aligned with the weld joints they are intended to join. The steering in many of these Jeeps is also very loose, leaving a "dead zone" of several inches of play in the wheel. This makes the vehicle feel dangerous while at highway speeds or on more narrow roads because of the over-correcting of the wheel. Many owners have received new steering boxes to fix the issue. But it is a persistent issue affecting thousands of owners from all of my research over the past few weeks.
