I know that everybody says first model years can have problems but I've had them before and they all have been OK so far. I figure think positive and things will work out in the end.

Re: WK2 with W5A580 Trans. Question

As the owner of a '99, yes, the first year remodel is problematic. But, Jeep was fairly quick at sorting out those problems, and fixed them under warranty. Simple stuff like using the wrong fluid in the QD transfer case, coming out with a suitable fluid instead of ATF, but generally not publishing that fix. The manual said ATF, and even some dealers continued to use that after the TSB. I'm concerned about the QuadraLift suspension, but feel that most other components of the WK2 are fairly tested.
