Re: 2nd Breakdown in just over 2 weeks!!!

Man sorry to hear that. I had serious issues with my JK right after I got it. Hopefully things will get better for you.

Don't blame MB or FIAT for that. Jeep has its very own competence in that kind of stuff. Just take a look at the other models.

From Sahara experts i got the info: do not buy a jeep.

Because i dont plan to go into the desert, i still consider to buy one ;-)

Re: 2nd Breakdown in just over 2 weeks!!!

it's a first year model, it's been in production for around 6 months... problems are bound to happen, especially with all the brand new tech on the GC. While not excusing Chrysler at all, that sucks , especially with it being a brand new car. I hope they get it fixed and figure out what's going on with it. This is a rare case, obviously as most other people are enjoying their WK2's. best of luck. At least Jeep sent someone out to help you versus just saying...oh well.. see ya when you bring it in! I think that was great customer service. just my 2 cents.

Oh god, so every isolated problem is now a "first year issue"?

70,000 of these on the road, one report of a particular problem somehow equates to a design defect to you guys?

Can we agree that a particular defect needs to be reported by at least, oh, how about THREE people before you tar the whole vehicle as being plagued with problems?

A little logic and common sense would go a long way.

Re: 2nd Breakdown in just over 2 weeks!!!

Well, TWO people have now had 4wd go out. One in mud, and one in sand. Don't know how many of the other thousands that are doing fine have been taken off pavement....

One person got STUCK in mud up the belly of the car. That's a defect in your mind?
