I have an 07 Laredo with the 4.7. Has less than 1500 miles.

So far:
  • G35 Recall ( Flash Brake Controller)
  • G40 Recall (Inspect front calipers)
  • Both front Wiindows TSB for reverse on auto up.(Both sides new regulator kit)
  • Transmission seems not sure what gear to be in when coasting maybe 40 MPH.

Look around on the WK forums. There seem to be plenty of little things that appear. But seems that some have been corrected by the 07 MY. Check out wkjeeps.com. Go to the TSB link. I have a 98 XJ so was kind of ready for some of the issues. I guess you can get 100 opinions on this question.

If you asked me now if I am comfortable with my purchase I would probably say No. I usually keep my cars for 10 years and really dont have any faith that this car will make it through without me getting tired of fixing things.

Are you buying it as a leftover? Because the Lifetime Powertrain is NOT transferrable if you are buying this used. With all the computerized stuff and modules I would consider an extended warranty. http://www.chryslerwarrantys.com/

Good Luck,
Rob

Yes, my 007 WK Laredo has the 4.7. I think the 4.7 is available on both the Laredo and the Limited. At least for 007 it was here in the US.

I just realized you are in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, so maybe there are different models/options available for export models.

Good Luck,
Robert
