I currently own 3 jeeps. 08 liberty with 80k, 09 wrangler with 95k, an 14 wrangler with 6k. No issues with any of them. The 09 does tend t collect some water on the floor boards when it rains in the summer with the top down and doors off.

Ok. So my first JKU, a 2012, burst into flames and burned to the ground in less than 5 minutes. But other than that....My 2nd, a 2013 JKU Sport, performed flawlessly. I put 40,000 miles on it in 1 year with nary a hitch. My current JKU Sahara only has 4,000 miles on it, but performs flawlessly.

Figure you just got a bad one. It happens. I'd go for a '13 or '14.

I have pretty good luck with jeeps thru the years. I've currently got a 2003 TJ sport which I've had to make repairs but nothing out of the normal of usual wear and tear. I also have a 2013 JKU. I haven't had any problems with it.
Personally I'm always a little wary of getting a model the year after major changes. Maybe you got stuck with junky 2012. I know my sister's family has a 2008 JKX which has over 100k miles and they love it. They are actually looking for a 2nd jeep because they have been won over.
But man it would be frustrating having all those issues that you mentioned.

I'm on my third Jeep and only because I tend to drive 'em into the ground.

'90 YJ ~200k miles on it and only had to replace the clutch a few times. I learned stick on this so it was really abused.

'02 Liberty , yeah I know it is not a Wrangler but we had kids and needed something a little more civil. ~180k miles on it no major issues until the head gasket went.

'12 JKU ~36k on it so far. I did have the "sand" in the coolant issue, but had the entire coolant system replaced under warranty. No other issues but I do have the lifetime warranty so not concerned.

-I will add that I still see both my YJ and KJ on the road as I sold them locally. The YJ was purchased by one of the mechanics at my dealership.

Same here... 93 Wrangler, traded with zero issues on a 96 Wrangler, drove it till it had over 200K on it (no issues), traded it for a 98 Grand Cherokee (same I6 engine), drove it to over 200K (only issue was the transfer case, at 190K), traded that on an 06 commander, never an issue (except my daughter re-designing the front bumper), and now a new '14 JKU Sport. 7K miles, no issues.

I'd say you got a bad vehicle out of the gate.

Good luck.

(and yea, there are some die hard Jeep loyalists here who will tar and feather you for using "bad" and "Jeep" in the same sentance, but there are idiots in every community. Ignore the few like that and listen to the people who add to this forum rather than taking away from it and you'll be fine.)

My current Jeep is Jeep # 30 for me. The only "bad" one in the bunch was a 1994 Grand Cherokee that would randomly stall in traffic, and Jeep couldn't figure out how to fix it. Otherwise we have been more or less trouble free. We've owned a number of GM vehicles over the years as well, and in general we have far more problems with anything GM than we do with Jeep.
