Great vehicle until about the 5 year mark

Let me start off my saying that I absolutely love my jeep. I have a 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4-door automatic. I bought it brand new off the lot with only 7 miles on it. At about the 5 year mark, (kept up will all maintenance) the problems started. First the spring in my gear shift broke...no biggie...cheap to fix. Then I had to drop $1500 to repair the death wobble that developed. It was so bad I almost wrecked several times (4 years after that it came back). The heater core went out and was spewing antifreeze on my passenger side floor. The radiator took a dump, and I’ve had several blinker issues. The most current issue is that the passenger side front and back blinker do not work and the passenger side front running light doesn’t work. Also my hardtop seals have gone to crap .....sooo water leaks when it’s raining. Sigh...again I absolutely love my jeep but the issues are overwhelming.

Jeeps are reliable and dependable

It�s a gas hog. It�s a very reliable vehicle if you take care of it. The doors are very easy to take off when you want to and the soft top is easy to take on and off. When driving it�s a little loud if you don't have stock tires. It�s super easy to clean because it is made to go off roading. They are great for the snow and I feel completely safe in it at all times. It�s great for families of four or five and you and your kids will love how cool you look in it!

I love the look and the ride of the vehicle but don't keep it long.

The Jeep wrangler is a high performance vehicle that can get you out of certain situations. But one of it is biggest downsides to me is a problem called the death wobble. This problem will cause the vehicle to shake uncontrollably while driving a speeds over 45mph. This problem is very expensive to fix could cost thousands and some say that even after they had everything replaced they still had the problem with their car.
