Ever wonder what percentage of Jeeps are lemons?

Found this statistic while surfing the web (http://www.lawlemon-wisconsin.com/le...ion-statistics), not sure how accurate they are. It says that of all the vehicles produced by Chrysler, 20.8% of them are lemons (second to GM at 29.7%).

Curious to know if anyone ever heard of what percentage of Jeeps are lemons? Just food for thought.

Re: Ever wonder what percentage of Jeeps are lemons?

Not sure I can believe that nearly 1 in 5 vehicles sold by GM, Ford, and Chrysler are lemons. Does that mean that they have 20% buybacks on vehicles? Hard to stay in business that way.

Rich mac,

Totally agree with you that 1 in 5 vehicles seems like a lot. Maybe skewed data somehow? Maybe they don't buyback 20%, but offer incentives to customers in order for them to keep the vehicles?

Maybe part of the reason they went bankrupt?

Justal13,

Would like to know where I could read more about the quality of the 2011-2012 WK2 JGCs you are referring to. i.e. acknowledged by who?

Why, you can do an Internet search as well as I can? Well, actually, I do a search and quote the source correctly.

Re: Ever wonder what percentage of Jeeps are lemons?

As a piece of general information, the information would explain why the US car companies almost went under. As to the relevancy for owners of WK2's, there is none.

Re: Ever wonder what percentage of Jeeps are lemons?

All this lawyers' roster shows is how a given car company fares relative to the rest. The statistics may also be influenced to a degree by a host of other factors, but it's hardly a surprise that over the years American manufacturers, like the Brits, have brought up the rear with reliability.

It's a new ballgame now. Japanese have become complacent, Koreans are on the rise, Americans have had the crap scared out of them, Germans are in a state of flux, and the Swedes are adios.

Best bet is that late this year the Consumer Reports' survey of readers will show the 2012 WK2 to be at least average overall.

+1 this stat can't be viewed in isolation you need to consider Market share in comparison to other companies and then the number of lemons compared to production. 20% of F&$@ all is F$&@ all...boring....
