  1. Op-Ed: Is the JL the BEST JEEP WRANGLER EVER?

    Im on my ninth Jeep. My CJ-7 was Hard to live with but reliable. My Wranglers were rattle traps but reliable. My 97 TJ was perfect. The only vehicle until now that I ever ordered from the factory rather then purchase new on the lot. My current Mojito Green 19 JLUR Sahara is so delicious to look...
  2. 2021 Jeep JLR problems in first few days

    Go to the dealer you bought it from. Have them repaint the rear door. No question about that. Have them listen to the sound, probably the spider gear in the diff. I had that in a new Corvette and it was just because they used the wrong diff fluid during manufacturing. I had a Honda Civic with a...
  3. Question About Jeep Value (before I take delivery today)

    The Wrangler has perhaps the 3rd highest resale value of anything out there. HOWEVER, nothing after 4 months is going to be a giveback. Unless the dealer loves you to pieces, that's the risk you take driving off the dealer lot. Nothing is going to be "EVEN" after 4 months. SO, buy your Wrangler...
  4. Coming From a Tacoma...Should I be Worried

    I had many of the same experiences with vehicles that CR said were awful, like my Jeeps which I had very good luck with, and even had some poor experiences with a Toyota and a Honda I owned that CR subscribers loved. However, in general they have been fairly accurate with brands and with...
  5. Coming From a Tacoma...Should I be Worried

    No vin. I would tend to doubt that people who get CR are the type of people purposely commenting on a vehicle they don't own just to screw up the stats. You get 2 vehicles to comment on and most people I would think would rather comment on what they actually own then making up something about...
  6. Coming From a Tacoma...Should I be Worried

    Well, There is a thorough reliability data on Jeeps in their mag. Yes, you can only enter data if you subscribe, however, the subscribers commenting on Jeep reliability have Jeeps and subscribe. So, that said, it kind of kills that argument about Toyota and Honda owners who also subscribe and...
  7. Coming From a Tacoma...Should I be Worried

    Although many of their methods can be maddening they are literally the only magazine that accepts no advertising unlike all the car mags out there that get paid to rate vehicles positively. IE Land Rover Discovery Motor Trend Car Of The Year!!. JUNK!!. Worst brand you can buy. I don't love CR...
  8. Coming From a Tacoma...Should I be Worried

    Yes, steering issues and paint and trim all impact it. Look at the bubble chart, CR is famous for those bubble charts since the 1940's. Even though we have heard a ton about steering issues, the actual percentage overall of people that have that problem still account for a small overall...
  9. Coming From a Tacoma...Should I be Worried

    CONSUMER REPORTS New Car Issue this month shows a MUCH BETTER THEN AVERAGE reliability rating for the Wrangler and Gladiator in their reliability statistical chart. Showing for 2020 reliability as good or better then any Toyota or Honda. Buy the issue.
  10. Gotta love Selec-Trac!

    How old is that Tonka Jeep toy in your picture?. Very cool. I cant find one anywhere. Just the WW2 Military Green ones.
  11. Gotta love Selec-Trac!

    WOW, great to hear that it is finally offered on the Rubicon. My next Jeep.
  12. Selec-trac Question

    No speed limit, I keep it there and have kept it there for almost 30K miles.
  13. Gotta love Selec-Trac!

    I added chocolate, lobster, a wife to my Jeep fixation. I think I still spend the most time obsessing about Jeeps, but the other distractions do help with the addiction. :)~
  14. Gotta love Selec-Trac!

    Selec-Trac was the best option I got no my 19 Sahara. Anyone who has something negative to say about it simply doesn't get it!!. It's a lifesaver and works amazingly well. Turns a great 4wd vehicle into an AWD without having to touch a lever. I set it in Selec-Trac and haven't touched it since...
  15. Coming From a Tacoma...Should I be Worried

    My family has been receiving CR since 1950 when my parents got married. I read every issue and examine all the stats thoroughly. I've had Honda's, Toyota's, Mazda's, Mini's, Subaru's, Land Rover's (Just don't buy any Land Rover ever) and on and on. I've had 9 Jeeps. My current JL Sahara 2019 has...
  16. 3.6L vs 2.0 turbo?? Pros and cons of both??

    I had the same questions about the engine. Got the V6 because I felt it was a tried and true engine and the 4 was a little up in the air as it's only known use as far as I new was in the Alpha Romeo. Still a nice engine. I chose the black top because $2000 for just a painted top seemed...
  17. DASH RATTLE rattling my brain. Any ideas?

    My 19 Wrangler JLU has developed a rather maddening sound coming from what seems to be under the drivers side top of dash speaker. SO, this is not really a typical rattle. It sounds JUST LIKE the sound of a morse code machine. Exactly like that sound, however it is not just over bumps, at times...
  18. 3.6L vs 2.0 turbo?? Pros and cons of both??

    The 3.6L is the right choice in my opinion. Although the 4 turbo has had good reviews, it is a very new and very complicated engine initially designed and made for the Alpha Romeo cars. Put that into a 4wd Off Road vehicle that it was never designed to be in initially, and longevity is a huge...
  19. First Time Jeep Buyer - I don’t know what I’m doing

    I've leased 31 vehicles in my life and never ever had an issue with returns, upgrades, mileage over, trade ins, anything. I almost always trade in 36 month leases at 24 months and still never got burned. The price on the sport in my opinion is above average. I think a minimum of 3000 off sticker...
  20. Was FORD really the first "Jeep"?

    And... More or less what I said, but thanks for the additional detail. Again, I'll stick with my Wrangler. I learned to drive on a Willy's, cool but not much fun really after about 15 minutes. It would rattle your teeth out of your head.
