41,000 on my '11 Sport and narry a hiccup. I don't even have any leaking issues HT or ST which is a nice surprise. It does leak a little when the top is off and a pop-up shower comes along though, but she drains well.

Then changing points, plugs, setting the timing, tuning the carbureter every few miles was also a big pain. Tires went about 10,000 miles and were shot. When I think of all this stuff, a broken wire to the starter is just minor and not called "trouble". So, with all that, no problems in 29000 miles.
In the good old days, I had a Pontiac GTO, with 3 duce's and a close ratio 4 speed with Hurst linkage. Boy would it ever kick ass! Changed the point, dual points, plugs. fuel filter and set the timing every 10,000 miles. Adjust the primary air fuel mixture adjustments and idle on the primary carburetor and clean the choke at time of tune up. I still have my old dwell meter and timing light made by Balkamp. Rebuilt carberators every 20,000, Brakes shoe type every 20,000 miles, Rebuilt generator every 20,000 miles. Universal joints and ballpoints at 30,000 miles. 50,000 pull heads and grind valves. Battery every year and oil change every 1,000 miles. Tires if you were lucky maybe 15,000 miles. That was all back in the 60s, boy we sure have come a long way............
Vehicles of today including my 2013 Rubicon really don't have any problems!

And the above items would actually be classified as "expendables" or wear items.

2012 with 20,000 miles gave me now issues and 2013 with 410 so far is good.

What you have to remember is people come to the internet to bitch, not usually to profess love for their new product. My friend almost didn't buy his 2012 because he came here and read the "does your jeep leak" thread. I told him it's a small percentage of people, who probably didn't put something on right, and it's a jeep, it's probably going to leak a little. He bought it and loved it. He told me he was glad he didn't let the thread put him off.

21,000+ miles on my 2012 Wrangler Sport, no problems so far that couldn't be remedied with a quick adjustment or lubrication of some sort.

08 JK 53000 no complaints

re: " I could not get the front power windows to work." that's happened twice in mine......remedied after a little confusion/consternation by turning off/on ignition;

Biggest issue was fuel spillage; remedied by factory tank replacement;

Squeaky front roll bar now silent after new bushing/lube install...total cost under $100;

Biggest repair has been wiper blade replacement.

Average 19.5mpg as DD and general rural hauling on OEM rims w/285/65R18 Kellys

People are going to be more motivated to join a forum and search for a solution to a problem or just to vent their frustrations than someone without a problem logging on and saying they are happy with their Jeep. It's sort of like walking into a hospital and wondering why there are so many sick people.

As for me, we bought our 2013 Sahara less than 4 months ago. It currently has around 1,200 miles and thus far no problems with it at all. We even like the 19-20 mpg fuel economy.

2013 JKR with 5K miles. No issues.

Had a 2001 TJ that needed a new clutch at 10 miles (really 0 miles, but I drove 5 from the dealer before I turned around).

They gave me the option to return the Jeep or have them put in a new clutch. I went with the clutch...and drove that TJ (with the same clutch) for over 11 years...and it was still good when I sold the TJ last September.

Try not to let the little things get you down.

Took delivery at the beginning of November 2012 and have only put 2600 miles on to date. Just a tiny problem with the 430N Nav unit. It does all sorts of wierd stuff like switching bands, not displaying certain menus (until I select HDD and then back to AUX and voila there it is) can't find iPhone or iPad from time to time but that's it. Mechanically it has been perfect. I will be taking the Jeep in to get the Nav problem resolved.
