Alberta Wrangler Pentastar Issues?

How many Wranglers in Alberta with the Pentastar engine have had to have a head replaced?
How many out there with no issues? Mileage?
The 2 local dealerships say they have had no issues to date with this engine yet alone have had to replace a single head.
I've got 12,000km on mine and so far all ok.

Ya gotta love what you drive, even if it's an old broken down swayback horse, like a TJ! That's all that counts.
