Just an informal survey. Who has already or is planning on getting rid of their new JL or cancelling their order because of all the quality issues? There are quite a few on Autotrader already, mostly with a few hundered to a few thousand miles. I got rid of my JLUS at 2000 miles, mostly because of the steering and the welds and no resolution in site.

I am not yet. I think there is a remote possibilty that a major frame recall ends up getting many/some of us brand new and improved JLs. Hard for that to happen if you dont have one...

I have almost 10k miles on my JLUR and so far so good. You're hit with the biggest plunge of depreciation (lose the largest chunk of cash in terms resale value) essentially the moment you drive it off the lot. You're covered bumper to bumper for 3year/36k so regardless of consumer fears unless in the event it turns out to be a lemon, you might as well at least hold off on trading it in until the default warranty becomes void.

God no... Love mine! If there was a warranty problem we'd get it resolved with FCA one way or another.

Shit happens. I plan to keep mine, buy a new one in 5 years and replace my buggy with the JL.
Thank god you didn't have to deal with the 6.7 Cummins debacle......You would still be upset.

@Jeepsforkeeps

SERIOUSLY .........You know what you can do with your "informal survey"... Suggest you move on. You sold your JLU and now want to come here and troll.. Move on AH.

As for me I am very pleased with my 2dr. JL. IF there is an issue with it in the future, FCA will address said issue.

I've put off my purchase - I was ready to order in July but held off. Partially because of weld and steering issues, and partly because of dealers' poor responses.

I'll wait a year or two, unless I find something I like better in the meantime.

I did not and do not plan on it but I do like that people like you are taking the time to post this type of experience. It will only help our cause for them to realize there are issues. I am not going to sit here and tell you the "move the bleep on" like many responses you are about to get.

I had some issues at first but most have been resolved but as stated it’s got a 3/36 and I even have some other type of warranty the dealer tossed in that covers batteries, breaks etc.... since some software updates it’s been pretty easy to drive and currently have approx 4500 miles since getting several months ago, the biggest issue I have is when I have to take it the the dealer it’s an all day job regardless of what’s being done

No issues so far...Love mine. Plan on it being the last vehicle I own. If it has issues FCA factory and extended warranties will handle it. By nature I'm a very loyal person with people in my life and items that I own. So, yeah, I'm in it for the long haul. Gettin rid of it is not an option, unless it gets totaled in a wreck.

Bought a new 2018 JLU Sahara in June, had major steering issues with it, steering problem completely resolved in July, I'm having a lot of fun with it now and am definitely keeping it.

I plan on keeping ours forever. Soooo much FUN. So many road trips to plan in the mountains. Some think sports cars are fun, they never drove a Wrangler.

Regarding the JLs on Autotrader, this is nothing new for non appliance/specialized vehicles. Happens when a new gen Corvette comes out, happened with the new gen Miata too.

In some cases it’s the idea in the buyers head vs the reality of owning the vehicle. Others find they extended themselves financially. I suspect for Jeep many come from a smooth riding mid/high range car and find the driving manners of the Jeep to be too different.
