2012 - year of the lemon

Is it just me or do the 12's seem to have a lot of issues?

Maybe I just got damn lucky (knocking on wood) but I have had zero issues with my 09 and she just turned 70,000.

I haven't had any problems out of mine (5k and still rolling). Knock on wood is right...but I bargained with the dealer (bought last week of December) and I have a 75K bumper to bumper warranty.

When ever a large quantity of anything is made, there is a chance some of them will have issues. When I think of the stories from the '70 and '80s ALL VEHICLES ....rusting out, paint peeling, breaking down, 100k miles it was junk,........I am really very satisfied with my '12.

There will be some with issues as anything, that is what the warranty is for. I can only say I hope my JK treats me as well as my TJ has.

What issues are you referring to? I, like the others, have 5000+ trouble free miles on mine. Only real issue I have is finding time to wheel it.

People seek out avenues to vent their problems as apposed to seeking out avenues to praise things. Go to any vehicle forum and dig around, you will find A LOT more problems. I am actually surprised on how little the complaints and problems are here. This is my 5th Jeep and I've never had any major problems (at least that I didn't cause).

I ordered mine almost as simple as a Jeep can get so I can focus on just a few drips of lemon juice instead of getting a full glass of it.

What is it with the 2012 lemon threads are these people misinformed, jealous, or just trolls.. The 2012 hasn't even been out long enough to make that kind of determination.

Lemon? Mine has been perfect and virtually flawless..even with a head replacement. I still look for reasons to drive it.
