There was a problem with the auto trans getting too hot. I think there was even a recall to put an idiot light in the dash when the fluid hit a specified temp.

Here, in Australia (WA) Jeep Wrangler has been the car that beat all sales records. Therefore or we are all stupid or they are but we sure love this amazing 4x4 here down under.
Could be a conspiracy made by Hummer's fan or Land cruiser???

This is to our advantage, guys. The less the general public knows about the reliablility of Jeep Wranglers and the more they're warned off by articles such as these means there are more used Jeep Wranglers available to us to use as trail rigs/daily drivers/ etc.....

I WANT the general public to avoid buying used Wranglers. Just means there are more out there for me!!

I have yet to see a CR-V on the trail. How can THAT be a good alternative to a Jeep? Just a totally dumb article all around.
