Not the smartest thing to buy a JL at this stage. Jeep/FCA screw up with the JL and buyers at this point are guinea-pigs. Get JK if you need a Wrangler or wait until the recalls slow down to like 1 a year from the 1 a week rate it's going at now.
Take a random sample of people from world's population and ask who will say it's a good idea to buy a Jeep at all let alone one that hasn't been tested enough by a company like FCA no less. Are you both saying there's a chance of even 50% saying "I think it's fine"? :cwl:
Great for now but not all issues are discoverable by the end user and not all recalls/issues have been identified/admitted by Jeep. There's a new recall almost every week... better not count your money cos the deal ain't done yet.
Either way you'll have to wait until these issues are figured out by the clueless Jeep/FCA people. Until then, your money is better in your pocket than in theirs. Or get a JK... the JL was massively overhyped because of the 11 year life cycle of the JK but it doesn't really deliver as everyone...
No. We were forgiving of Jeeps when they were not commonly usable as everyday vehicles. These new Jeeps (JK and JL) aren't like that.
Do you think if the OP wants to resell the vehicle the buyer will pay more for off-road cred?
Poor quality control by FCA. I promised myself that I'd only buy a floor model or even a mild demonstrator so I can see and feel what I'm getting. Let the dealerships put their capital down to bring them in.
Go to a different dealership if they're not any good. Speak to JeepCares also.
Have no fear... the JL's hard top is weak and cracks easily and the new soft top leaks. (see official recalls/bulletins and user reports). You'll be welcomed by the drafty leaky ratty top TJ driving community in no time :cwl:
That's just an intake temperature sensor. The pentastar doesn't have a MAF, it has an intake temperature sensor and a MAP sensor from which it calculates air density.
Im sure it's fine or your engine wouldn't work well, let alone start properly/at all.
That basically confirms what the other person also said about centrifugals needing high rpms.
Also, manufacturers have gone with 8, 9 and 10 speed transmissions to keep the rpms low to keep things smooth and economical. Does the tune change the shift points or something so it revs much higher...
Did I say there are complete alternatives to the Jeep out there right now or were you having a reading difficulty? :) What I said is that it's not difficult for someone to checkmate the Wrangler if they wanted.
Not saying they're as "cool" but they are there...
Wait until Land Rover comes up with the new Defender and later add a SVR model with a supercharged V8. Everyone thinks that Defender's no match but you see a lot more of them than Wranglers in other parts of the world. Also not everyone lives next to the Rubicon and rock crawl every day to work...
Quantity over quality. Where's the discussion of QC issues and how they plan to avoid them?
They're trying to mask the almost weekly recalls by saying customers want more. Neither is an answer to the real problem and it's a classic response of diversion used by sinking companies and political...
My 2014 JKU also has the same number of airbags as the JL, factory reversing camera, stronger/steel doors and body than the JL but weighs the same, leather seats, premium twill softtop that hasn't leaked since the day I bought it and it's not the crappy JL slide on slide off design that's super...
