    The Jeep brand (Ram too) under FCA has to be the saddest brand in the automotive world. An automotive icon, successful niche player with solid sales, great resale (this may be short lived) with a dedicated customer based who can’t design and engineer a safe steering system and let’s face it just too many quality control issues. The Wrangler is the model Jeep REALLY needed to get right from the start as it is the Jeep brand.

    I’m not surprised since every FCA product is a piece of shite - Jeep’s (Ram’s) only really hope is to be split-off as a separate company with different management but since Jeep is the only brand making money for FCA it will never happen. Jeep’s problems are their manage which unfortunately permeates every aspect of the brand.

    As someone who would love a Wrangler I can say the issues with the Wrangler are well-known when speaking with friends - the general consensus is to stay away. It doesn’t take too long of looking on the web to see those recommendations are well-founded. Let’s hope RAM and Jeep somehow are allowed to prosper under different management sometime in the future.

    In Kentucky we always say, "thank god there's Mississippi."

    FCA----if you can't be good, then at least find something worst to compare yourself to. Where's a Yugo when you need one?

    Owning a Jeep has been an abusive relationship with CJ, TJ, JKU, and now a JLU.

    Had one designed by every owner the name has lived under and they all had their "charms"

    You accept it or don't own one.

    Don't marry one thinking it will change, regardless of management. She will mistreat you over and over.

    Yup...the fact that FCA can design and build garbage all while providing substandard sales and service experiences and people keep on buying this crap is absolute proof most people are morons. Unfortunately, the free market falters when the average consumer is brain dead and can't make a half-decent decision in spite of the facts presented to them.
