Factory-ordered 2019 model (delivered Dec '18). The 2.0L is great. No issues... No regrets.

14000 miles only issues are:
Passenger seat noise when making a turn
Brakes squeak every start up wet or dry
Driver side speaker distorted/ vibration noise
Intermittent uconnect issues
Otherwise still impressed the way she drives and how good she looks clean or dirty :jk:

34k miles on ours, and approx. 8k miles of it towing. Running strong, absolutely no issues. Did crack the windshield finally at around 30k miles while towing down to FL.

19,800 miles.
Has had 315/70/17s on it since 900 miles.

The only drivetrain related issue I have had is that I have just developed a small pinhole type exhaust leak just behind the driver's seat. It is small enough I haven't gotten it to the dealer yet.

General issues not related to the 2.0 drivetrain-
Passenger seat noise that many have
Carplay issues (random location on navigation on restarts sometime which pairs with music/podcasts not starting)


Overall extremely pleased with the Jeep. The only thing I could see trading for would be a Gladiator as I could use the truck bed and extra towing capacity but not so much that I could see eating the depreciation.

I only have one issue. There is evidence of under paint corrosion spots on the doors around some of the hinge plates. Others have reported the same issue and I'd advise all JK owners to closely inspect theirs for it. I didn't realize I had the issue until I read a thread about it on this forum. It is suspected galvanic corrosion caused by faulty coating on the hinge plate fasteners or hinge plates. Other than that, it's been the most enjoyable Wrangler I've ever owned.

I had the passenger seat noise, I found a good dealer that actually took it apart and replaced the entire seat bottom, and now zero noise, and as far as uconnect, I just reset the fuse, and That usually does the trick, I also just attribute it to being like a typical smart phone that gets buggy from time to time... Other than that I can’t deny how awesome it is to drive...
