I had just shy of 10,000 on my 07 2 door X and it had the roof leak, more rattles then I knew what to do with, clutch sqeek and rear main sill leaking when I traded it for my 08 Sahara Unlimited. As of right now I am coming up on 3,000 miles on the Sahara have the rattles and roof look. I can deal with all the small problems, but if it developes the same engine and tranny problems as the last, I might be forced to hang up the Jeep brand for good.

Just hit 12,000 Miles today.

Had my clutch replaced this week with just shy of 12k on it for that damn annoying squeek. Drives a LOT better now.

Other than that, no mechanical issues.

I hope this Jeep brings you some good luck. I havn't had any leaks or rattleing issues so far. I did notice one of my hinges has a stone chip and the paint on the side of the jeep has the texture of an orange but so far so good. I only have 1000 miles on it.
You know for $30,000 you would think the jeep would be void of all these little issues. I hate when owners brush it off as a "Jeep thing".
When the Jeep engineers noticed these issues they were all probably ignored because it could be passed off as a “Jeep thing” by the consumers. Do you think BMW, Toyota or Honda consumers think that way? We have to shed this immature redneck attitude toward this vehicle. Expect $30,000 worth of excellence. Not rattles, squeaks, leaks, chips and wobbles.
Get it! Or are we all dealing with a “retard thing” for purchasing this North American icon.

08 Sahara Unlimited, bought 10/2/07

10,800 miles to date.

roof leak with both hard, and soft tops. had the hard top leak fixed successfully. not oing to bring it in for the soft top leak, its very minor and only in a driving rain.

other than that and a software update for the snap crackle pop mygig, the JK has been awesome to me.

I traded in an 05 Acura TSX which I never had a problem with, for my JK.
And I am so glad I did, 0 regrets, I actually enjoy the JK. It is a fun vehicle.

17500 No dealer service at all. Never had any of the recalls done, top never leaked, and all broken parts were because of driver error.

I love My Rubi although it should hate me.
