That Jeep, and your previous Jeep. Gorsh.
Maybe it's time for a Corolla.
If I could I would. But Instead I'm getting a roof. and that's WAY better!
(Thinking more like a Camry actually......maybe even a Hybrid?!)
Nocar is better than Mopar.
I had a Hybrid as a rental when I moved out here. Sucked. No trunk, and the mileage was so-so.
I vote Legacy wagon, and Mazda3
I vote 1986 Pontiac Fiero for MMike.
complete with tacky ferrari kit conversion with 2" sheetmetal gaps and white miami vice suits....
It is a jeep, what do you expect?
Jeep= $3,500-$4,500 for a Corolla
Cash for clunkers is still dumb.
When did we annex Canada?
get a helicopter.
Total mileage driven in Jeeps (3): ~250k miles
Total breakdowns/failures to start: 0
*knocks on wood*
I almost pissed myself laughing.
This MIGHT be a world record. Have you contacted Guinness?
My father and brother have had just as much "luck"
Routine maintenance goes a long way.
Edit - all our Jeeps have had the 4.0......that makes a big difference.
Ahhh... yeah. Manual trans for the most part?
I had a 4 liter Jeep, F'n exhaust manifold cracked.
Don't forget to put the buick grand national engine in it. Or even an LS1.
Try it now!
It's only funny when it's not me.
All autos. Never had a single serious engine/trans/TC issue.
That 4.0 is a gift from God. SO friggin' reliable, absolute workhorse of a motor. Crazy simple to work on, too.
I had the Xterra towed on Friday. Neck broke off of the radiator and I wasn't dealing with it. I called the towing company and said, "I've been thinking how to squander a pile of money and have nothing when finished so I decided to tow my car". Seriously, you pay someone to take away the convenience of your car. It sucks.
That said, I thought my car would cost over a grand for a radiator and another water leak under the exhaust. They thought there was no second leak, so it only cost $444. Woot.
Oh yeah, almost forgot, you deserve to have your Jeep broken down.
More like a VW Beetle convertible.
Insanity = doing the same over and over and expecting a different result.
In recent news god has been destroying the cars of alcoholics so they cannot drive.
Muahahaha I love it when a plan comes together.
You didn't annex....... In the grand American tradition you amex'd it.
I agree....alas I have the 4.7L H.O.
Until now it's been good.....After all....I have a whopping 67000 miles on it!
No diagnosis yet?
The Jeep hates him.
Can he get that in writing?
Yes it does, my 98 wranlger has the 4.0 and gets very regular routine maintenance from me. 130,000 miles, runs like swiss watch.
Unfortunatly thats a fairly common failure in the 4 liter.
Parts are expensive. I had to replace the "clock spring" in my steering wheel. Basically its just a big coiled loop of copper wire for electrical power to the horn and airbag, and it was 300 bucks. But it was my fault it broke since I was screwin around with the steering at the time.
I love my 2000 Cherokee.
I miss my 2001
I had a '92 XJ I got rid of when it had 180k miles on the clock, and the only thing I had to do was replace the water pump once. The owner after me (family friend) drove it for another 20-25k with no issues.
Only thing that sucks about XJs/ZJs/WJs is the goddamn unibody in terms of rust. NE winter salt + unibody = fail.
Apparently it was the crank sensor.
$260 (with the towing)
I know a lot of people seem to have issues with the CPS on the 4.7 V8s just from being on a Jeep forum a bit.
I assume it controls spark timing....(or is part of the process)
