This is my frist jeep I made the purchase base on reviews. I have owned many makes in the past. This is the first new vehicle that I have had one problem after the next.
I,m less than 6 months and 3,000 miles owner and had to take it in for defective shocks. And now I see that the wheel weights have fallen off the left front.
Most recently I seen a story in USA today stating the 2012 could have a power steering leak which could cause an engine fire!
For a vehicle that has been through harsh use before production seem to have more than the average car problems.

Re: Frustrated
Some people have had problems, while others (like me) are problem free. Quality control issue? Likely. Unfortunately Chrysler is known for QA issues.

Re: Frustrated
that sucks, i know it's a PITA and hopefully your dealer can help, where in Ohio are you? - maybe it was built on a Friday when the UAW started drinking or smoking weed early? ;)

Re: Frustrated
I agree: although I haven,t had any major problems the little ones requiring time out of a busy schedule to have corrected is a pita!

When Fiat took over they required the test vehicles to be put through all kinds of driving conditions to fix any problems before production. My last vehicle a Chevy Tahoe I owned 9 years and aside from oil changes had to only replace the tires and battery. Guessed I had the same expectation from the wk2.
