Now I would be speculating, but the last year for the lawsuit could be because Jeep claims its recalls fix the problem, and implemented them at the factory after the 2021 model year (not that they necessarily fixed the root problem). Or it could be because 2021 was the last model year of someone in the lawsuit. Or both. This is from that article:Well, there "appears" to have been a hydraulic issue, there "appears" to be a flywheel issue, and there "appears" to be a clutch issue. That seems multifaceted.
The lawsuit is for 2018-2021, I have a 23 on a rail car heading my direction so yeah, hopefully the problems are fixed.
"The automaker argues it provided documented proof the clutch recalls, performed for free, fixed the clutch defects."
I would like to see that proof. What are the chances Jeep is willing to share it with the general public?
I don't have a Wrangler. I was looking at buying one, and would prefer a manual (my current car is stick). So I did some internet due diligence, looking at people's opinions and potential problems. Every car is going to have some problem(s) that is common across a model year. But when I started seeing the threads about the exploding clutch (most of them on this site), that gave me pause. The fact that people were having it happen on cars that had both recalls done, coupled with Jeep's response, bothered me. And I would have bought used, putting me in the 2018-2021 problem years.As for not referencing previous threads, thanks for the heads up I'll do some more reading. This one popped up I had some thoughts, I figured I've used my left foot for the last 30+ years, I was bored I typed some thoughts. Sorry I got your feathers ruffled
Oh, just curious, do you have a MT Wrangler?
Of course it sounds like the majority of MTs are ok. Hope you have fun with your new Wrangler.
