Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

I like it, but don't love it. Needs an IRS and stiffer chassis. WK2 has an IRS, right? Its the same platform pretty much, so I wonder if it can retro to the WK? Working on getting Subframe connectors made for the chassis issue.

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

I think we'll find it's far from the same platform, so you'll be better served getting a WK2.

What's not to love apart from scary city fuel consumption? Then you put your foot down and you forget about the stinkin' fuel consumption... yeeha!

So you bought a Jeep you don't really want and that makes you hate the Jeep? Maybe you should hate the choice you made instead .

Re: Your WK - Love it? Hate it?

Hate it !!!

With all the endless problems it has given me there's still more and just never ends ... this time need to replace the right front axle seal ... what else is gonna pop up in the near future ... feel like need to keep car repair funds aside at a high balance just cover driving this POS around town.

not to mention gets the same MPG's as a phucking HEMI ... handling is like shit, had to replace almost all suspension components just to make it handle a little better (this includes all control arms, sway bar links, sway bars, strut, shocks, springs, stabilizer bar)

Shifting is another story especially how the 3.7 chokes on dick when climbing from 30-45 MPH range, the TSB didn't do shit either same thing

Seats are uncomfortable, there is so much to replace in this car when I could have bought something for the same price range that didn't require this much repair and care just to make it enjoyable to drive

especially being on a college student budget having to maintain a job and school, the endless repair bills have gotten sickening and can't wait to get rid of this POS !!!
