High Mileage WK2s

If you have a high mileage WK2, I am interested in how much trouble your WK2 has had. I've only have 24,000 miles on my 2012 WK2 but it has been trouble free. I would like to put at least 100,000 miles on my WK2 before trading it and wonder what kind of trouble I may encounter if I keep it that long.

Just passed 30,000 miles and the only problem I've had has been a leaky shock that was replaced under warranty.

Re: High Mileage WK2s

Just passed 32600 on my MY2012 Summit...trouble free outside of the pano rattle (TSB fixed it). With the mileage I'm doing (work trips and family trips) I'll be easily exceeding 100K before I move to the next one.

We have 40,300 miles on our 2012 Summit. Purchased in March 2012. Lots of long trips have added up , but to date no issues at all.

Re: High Mileage WK2s

My 2011 overland with the Hemi had high miles when I traded it for the 14 I have now. I had no real issues with it. It didn't burn oil like some people claim, it never went to the shop for any kind of repair out of warranty, it gave me no problems to speak of. I guess the one thing I'd mention would be that I had to add coolant more often than normal once the jeep got over the 60-70 k mileage mark and I had to have a few tsb's applied early on, probably had them done at about the 5k mileage mark or before.

Other than that, a perfect vehicle and very reliable.

I'm at 54000 and I had a rear passenger shock squeak that needed replacement and the Quadra Lift compressor go out. The replacement of the compressor fixed it, but my car was literally out of my hands for 2 or 3 weeks even though I told the repair shop to look at that. It was frustrating. The sunroof also developed a squeak/grinding noise and that was fixed with some grease. Apparently the greasing should occur every 2 years.

Other than those things the car has been a joy.

Re: High Mileage WK2s

I'm at 103,000 on my Limited 3.6 Worst thing so far was a failed front strut. Few small electrical issues, but nothing that would stop if from running.

Re: High Mileage WK2s

just hit 11K on my '14 .. my only issue is that it burns some oil when you floor it. and once in a blue moon the Raising message for the QL2 air suspension wont go away.. but a simple raise up and back down makes it go away.

Re: High Mileage WK2s

51k on my '12 Overland. I have the pano roof rattle at certain temperatures, but it seems to be getting better. I have until 60k to have it fixed for free.

I had a code come up early on and the dealer replaced one of the heads. Other than that just a set of tires and oil changes....

I really like this car and expect to keep it for a long time, and and hoping to put 300k on it.

There's a TSB for that;
