When it is cold windshield wiper blades will only touch at the very ends so they don't clear the windshield and you can't see out, even when the windshield and wiper baldes are completely cleaned. This is a very dangerous condition. The dealer has replaced the blades twice but the problem persists.

Have experienced numerous quality problems including the 4 wheel drive grinding and jumping, window function problems, rear washerhose leak into rear compartment, rough transmission into reverse from park, oil gauge failure and engine clicking noise during acceleration. Dealer on many occasions says they are normal for the truck to experience and not to worry. I don't believe them.

None of these things have been fixed to date. Dealer was given 2 chances and kept saying they could not see anything. Took to another dealer & they said drive shaft, brakes, pinion & gear, back glass all needed replaced. Would not work on vehicle because of dealer fraud. Bought Oct. 1999 new. Had been in service since Sept. 1998. Did not want to get involved. No safety defect listed in the summary.

The wiper blades stiffen and lose contact with the windshield, except at the ends, at temperatures below 30 F. the blades will not even clear water from the windshield. Stopping and cleaning the blades only works for a few minutes. In order to see where you are going, you must look through the bottom of the windshield. I have been driving in identical winter conditions for over 20 years with Subaru and my other Jeep and have only experienced this type of problem under extreme conditions. I feel that this is a serious safety problem that Jeep needs to address. The dealer says that nothing can be done unless they have a tsb.
