1998 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #6

Jan 152000

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 25,000 miles


Many problems with this vehicle. Water pump leaked - fixed under warranty, gas tank seal leaked - fixed under warranty, seats ripped - fixed under warranty, suction cup marks on window - fixed under warranty, front stabilizer shock leaked - fixed under warranty, rear window seal leaked - repaired under warranty two times and still leaks, instrument panel fails - out of warranty not repaired, radiator failed - out of warranty fixed at my cost, stabilizer arm failed both sides twice - fixed under warranty once and the out of warranty fixed at my cost, exhaust manifold failed - out of warranty - fixed at my cost, clutch fork failed - out of warranty fixed at my cost, leak under the dash board passenger side - fixed under warranty. Of all the problems above... loss of instrument panel needs to be fixed by the manufacturer regardless of in or out of warranty. Loss of gauges is a driving distraction and can result in an accident. Jeep needs to address this manufacturing defect as long as this vehicle is on the road.

Each time I am on the highway and anywhere within any vicinity behind a truck and any size of debris is thrown up on my windshield....it causes a break. Each time it has broken....this size of rock or debris has been hardly visible to the eye. The very last time was a tiny piece of asphalt and it left the biggest break of all. There is obviously some type of default in the windshield for it to break so easily. I am curious as if there are any other individuals having the same problems. I have spoken with many individuals with Jeep and none have expierenced this type of difficulty.
