I bought my 05 WK with 75k on the clock which I still own and drive daily. Well maintained by a mechanical engineer. In about 3k miles after I bought it I had to have the tranny rebuilt, $3k. Prior to that AC condenser failed, another $1.2k. My six year old, low mile WK LTD I bought for $13k, then needed almost $4.3k worth of repairs. I should have bought an 06 or 07. Since 1994 I've had 3 jeeps with the 4.0L six, 2 XJ's, a 92 and my current 96 and a 03 WJ Laredo and they were the best. No issues. Reg maintenance and ran great. First, a 92 XJ 4.0 I had for 12 years and it only needed gas, oil and tires. The AC ran cold when I traded it for another XJ, my current 96 Country. Never recharged the 92 and I live in Florida. You can't kill the 4.0 or the XJ's. I tried, believe me.
