Re: JK Wrangler manual transmission

I don't have an issue with the idea of foreign parts. I'm pretty sure the manual in my 98 cherokee is by Aisin Warner which was at least half Japanese. I like it because it is inexpensive and bulletproof as they say. Also I'd be interested in a diesel which would almost certainly be from VM Motori in Italy. German cars and parts tend to be very expensive (Mercedes, BMW, Audi) on the whole and reliability is generally not very good.

I bring up this topic because it is an interesting time for Wrangler. If in fact a diesel is offered will it be paired with a manual? If so the current one or a different one? Also the new Wrangler is in the works for 2017. By then the NSG370 will be pretty old. Will they keep it? Or go with a new one? Also my Cherokee is approaching 260K. So the day is coming when I'll need a new ride.

Re: JK Wrangler manual transmission

keeping in mind that these transmissions have been produced for a long time, there are a lot of repair parts available for them, so I don't believe the 370 transmission is any more expensive then any other. I think it just went through an update. Maybe here to stay.

Re: JK Wrangler manual transmission

Just change the fluid in them regularly and I would doubt you would have much problem, not like your drag racing a jeep.

from reading these forums the clutches give the problems.

Re: JK Wrangler manual transmission

I hope they are working on a new manual tranny SO THEY CAN USE IT WITH THE 3.0 DIESEL

Going to a diesel is a legit reason to talk about manual Ts

Re: JK Wrangler manual transmission

Looks like the recent thread on the pentastar 3.6 was hijacked by manual transmission issues. Not good. Not good at all.

Re: JK Wrangler manual transmission

Found out for sure that the Wrangler's manual transmission, the six speed NSG370, is definitely made in Germany by Mercedes and imported to the US. Checked out the ALAA lists for the official info.
That makes zero sense to me and will prevent me from buying one. Keep advertising it as an American icon but don't tell anyone the POS manual is made overseas. These things have some serious issues. They couldn't find one good American made manual transmission or at least build it here and make it better? Fail.
