I never herd of Motor Biscuit. I assume they are just quoting Consumer Reports?
Consumer Reports...has always hated Wranglers. Every review...
I don't disagree but Edmunds also just accepted the "need for two hands at highway speeds" and the dead spot in the wheel as normal. Had they realized this is actually a defect I wonder if they may have reviewed it a little less favorably.I never herd of Motor Biscuit. I assume they are just quoting Consumer Reports?
Can't make excuses. FCA can definitely do a lot better Quality Control wise. FCA products are consistantly at the bottom of quality control surveys from JD Powers and other companies. I personally know of a few new JLs that have their share of QC issues. I also know of MANY JLs that have been problem free. My '19 JLR 2.0T is a year old and zero problems so far other then the steering stabilizer recall. I did not notice any steering issues prior to or after the recall. I did the stablizer recall out of convience when I was in for a oil change. The steer in felt a little stiffer after the new stabilizer was installed.
A couple of areas the JL could definitely be better QC wise. The JL doors are terrible, they are very wavy or warped. Both my TJ and JK were MUCH better. I get the JL doors are a different material but still they should be better. Looks like the hinges are starting to corrode already on some JLs. One member in Mexico is reporting the black plastic bumpers are fading already. Some of these issues go back to the TJ. You think they would have improved on these issues by now.
A major car site, Edmunds, just completed a 50K mile review of a Wrangler Rubicon and it was for the most part problem free for them. Their review was very favorable.
Personally I love my JLR and I accept it's made by FCA. There is a warranty if anything comes up.
Like anything else your milage may vary.
I've Never seen Jeep Wrangler Car before. but I can tell you. My Jeep wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is Fantastic & extremely reliable..
Consumer reports views vehicles as "assets", not machines. They're looking at financials first, everything else second, if at all. They look at almost every enthusiast vehicle like this as well, except a few, if my memory serves me correctly.. Because they're pitching to a different market segment than people who buy Wranglers. Once again, i'll say it: We want a giant hot wheels more than we want a safe, economical, reliable, practical car. Not that there aren't some issues, but our baseline standards are much different than Chad Yuppington looking for a family SUV to drive to the office and to his kids soccer practice. At the same time, there's a reason I still haven't seen a Toyota Camry casting by Hot wheels...Consumer Reports...has always hated Wranglers. Every review...
