Unbelievable how little some people know. Did you know the JKs have had some of the problems reported on JLs? Go read JK forums and you'll see some people talking about some of the same problems. Visit most vehicle forums and see some of the same issues. Did you know Ford just recalled over 2 MILLION F-150s for fires and transmission issues? Did you know the vast majority of vehicles for all brands have few problems but all brands have some problems? Did you know you should never read forums to decide on buying a vehicle? Most owners that have no problems don't visit forums and they don't report how great their vehicles are.

I understand. I had a 2010 JKUR built from factory for me; no issues at all. Loved it. It's a different story when you have two kids strapped in 5 point car seats with a vehicle leaking gallons of gas. Scary, no matter what.

True. But if that dangerous they shouldn't be in it. They'd love to Uber to wherever they need to go.

Um They were removed asap. The jeep was towed 2 hours back to the dealer, on my dime. FCA said it was too far...small price to pay for piece of mind.

No car is perfect, that’s obvious. The point is that the number of issues is too and it’s a wide range of serious issues. 2018 wrangler had 7 recalls and 1 open investigation for frame weld issues. Even the 2019 has a recall for front track bar separating frame due to welding issues. Source: safercar.gov

Nice job in totally exaggerating the f150 recall, I’m sure it makes you feel better about the Jeep issues.

Gas leaking in any vehicle is a very serious issue and these dealerships need to come up with more than, "I can't find the leak" or "A software update fixed you leak." Where the heck are the dealerships finding these mechanics? I would take my Jeep in and kindly explain to them that you aren't leaving until the thing is fixed and you want to see what was wrong with it. Otherwise your next words are "Lawyer!!!!"

The 2018 F150 had 8 recalls and how are the news reports of 2 million Ford trucks an exaggeration and you saying the JL recalls being worse isn't an exaggeration. Not one reported accident for the Wrangler steering but actual accidents and fires reported for the 150.
