NEVER BUY A JEEP!!! IT IS A GREAT FAIL!!!
I made my mind. Jeep is a very great money and time waste..
I owned a jeep for one year. And I haven't spent a nice weekend since. As I have to spend it at the mechanic shop. WTF????
I'm going to Mercedes-Benz.. Mainly S320 / S500
Great luxury heavy armored vehcile. No headache...
Sorry to say it.. But jeep has a long way to go to become a reliable vehicle.
Issues that I had throughout the year of having a 99' WJ GC I6:
- Differentials Amazing NOISE
- Power Steering Pump & Poly
- Steeing Rod
- Radiator (full mess) Still overheating even after radiator rebuilding.
- A/C leaking water into the passenger floormat (pain in the A**)
- Electric shorts
- Dead Dynamo
- Some more stuff here and there (that I can't even remember)
I bought it around 3,267.00 USD
Total expenses through the year = 4,000 USD
I would never suggest WJ to anyone .......

I can't believe someone can be such an irresponsible (edit) to state this in a serious manner.
You bought a 13 year old USED vehicle at about 10% or so of the of the price of the vehicle when new, and don't bother to state the mileage. You heard some obvious noises that would indicate a need for repair dollars, and got some unexpected suprises; we all have experienced this to some degree.
Now you want to pass judgement that the Chrysler WJ Jeep product as a whole as a failure?
Hey, I love my Jeeps, but I too am disappointed in some of the common design or build quality flaws we are all familiar with. Every other brand has its shining stas and black eyes too. Add to that harsh environment, normal wear and tear, and abuse and neglect. Dealing with used vehicles has its perils.
So, you are going to bad-mouth Jeep to others because of your ridiculously unrealistic assesment?
Jeep didn't fail, YOU did.
Are you one whose problems are always your friend's, parent's, boss', the cop's, the lawyer's, the judge's, the jury's fault?
Touched up some paint chips and surface rust spots.
