Maybe trade it in on a new vehicle for my wife... Then wait 6 months and order another one! Don't feel like I should pay for a tainted vehicle... I don't feel comfortable dumping Thousands of MOD dollars into a potential lemon... I'll post my results later tomorrow night
I wonder how much of a screwing you would take trading in already?

I'm not sure.... But I can tell you one thing... I'm not pleased with <3000 miles and a major engine repair. I'll find out by this time next week. I was wondering myself what others did... That we're pissed they were getting there engines torn into... I want a factory untouched motor..period. Maybe others will post there results... Or deals that were made. I mean come on, noone is happy about it! And believe me I saved and waited for 2 years for the 2012 MY.. Was planning on keeping it for ever.. But. We shall see!

I guess one thing that might or might not put your mind at ease is that replacing a head is not really major engine repair. I know people tend to think it is, but it is really just unbolting and bolting on parts. Not like a crank/rod repair or even piston replacements. I figure at this stage in the game most techs have done it enough times that it is not a big deal.

That's why new vehicles have a warranty.

You're right. It really isnt a big deal. They dont even have to take the motor out to do it. It's not like they have to replace a crankshaft. Having said that I still would be really pissed after paying 30 to 40k and having to have this done on a brand new vehicle. I'd be more worried about them breaking or damaging something else while it was being worked on. I had a brand new BMW that threw a abs light on the way home from picking it up at the dealer. Long story short after a month at the dealer I got the car back with a big scratch on the deck lid.

Update: im on my 3rd head. My 2012 just turned over 12k miles. Dealership tried to say they need the CEL in order to work on my JK. I told them I'm moving to the east coast (VA) from San Diego and I'll be damned if I was going to wait until the CEL came on somewhere near truth or consequences, NM. I said it was the same tick as the first incident and now I'm losing about 30-50 miles per tank on MPG. They said they would check to see if they could do anything. By the way, yhey make you second guess yourself because they say their "tech" doesnt hear pr cant duplicate the "ticking". dont put up with that BS. tell them to compare it to a 2013 sitting on the lot , in your presence. so, While I was waiting I opened a case with Chrysler customer care. Within 24 hours they were working on my jeep. Couple of things happened on the way to fixing my jeep. One, The head (left side, yet again) was on hold in LA along with over 400+ others and needed special permission to release it. (I think calling customer care helped with this).
Two, when the mechanic was replacing my head he found that my rocker arms and camshaft were "pitted". They had to order that as well. Long story short.... She seems to be running like a top. Once I got the dealership to start working on my baby, they actually bent over backwards to make it happen. I'm halfway across the USA and so far no problems and no CEL. There's more to the story, please PM if you need more info.

PS
They replaced 6 rocker arm assemblies, a cam shaft and the head.
I told them if it happens again, one of these 4 things will need to happen.
1) they replace the whole motor from the auto clutch forward.
2) they take it back and pay off my loan.
3) replace my 2012 with a 2013 JK or
4) pay for a complete aftermarket Hemi upgrade.
What are my chances at getting any of the above?

when was your first head replaced? if it was before mid-august, you probably got another bad head, which would put you as the second person with 2 head replacements in this thread. up until july they had no fix for the heads, so they were just replacing the bad head with more new heads of the same design.

as for your questions, you have rights under the lemon law of your state. anything beyond those rights, you're at the mercy of chrysler. chryler does have a "good will" program, but I can't seem them giving any hand-outs because they're so swamped with this problem.

This is what I have been harping about for months now when people just say, "it's under warranty so why worry?". A certain person here has also claimed that a defective head should not affect the lower part of the motor due to the design of the pentastar. Obviously that person is ill informed as you are proof that it does and it has. A lot of these problems from these bad heads will start to pop up 3-7 years from now when the vehicle is no longer in warranty and then people will be getting socked with $2k repair bills for 5 year old Jeeps with 30k miles on them or 3 year old Jeeps with 100k miles depending on how you drive. That's been my complaint all along when people say that Chrysler is stepping up and repairing them. That may be, but Chrysler is certainly not saying what is actually CAUSING the problem and whether or not it will lead to other more catastrophic wear and breakage further down the line much earlier than it normally would have and if it does then how will they deal with that.

You do know that you now qualify for the lemon law if that ticking starts again dont you? 3 times for the same problem with no resolution and they have to give you your money back. You have nothing to worry about and I'm sure Chrysler is aware of this. You are in the drivers seat my friend. If they give you any problem get a lawyer. My buddy is an expert on this stuff. He's lemon lawed more than 1 vehicle. The last one I believe was a Dodge and they gave him a hard time. Long story short he got a lawyer, got his money back plus an extra 5k for his troubles.

Yup, that is my concern. Long term impact on the engine and what happens "down the line". I have no plans on playing the "its under warranty" game. If it is not fixed (not just covered up, but fixed) by the AC head.....it is a design flaw in the engine.....and Chrysler will be the proud new owner of a 2013 Billet Sahara....low miles.

Read up on the lemon law. Chrysler has 3 strikes before you can invoke that. Unfortunately they get 3 strikes before they are out unless somehow there is a class action law suit which is highly improbable. It would have to be proven that Chrysler knowingly sold this engine with a problem. You have no choice but to either play the warranty game or just sell it.

I was speaking in general sentiment. I've already read the Illinois Lemon Law.

Wrong my friend. These are not lower engine parts that were mentioned above. They are all in the head. That doesnt comfort me any though. Thats still alot of work to be done a brand new vehicle.

The bottom end of an engine,( crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, rings etc.) are unrelated to the valve train. It's the cylinder heads and the rest of the valve train that could all be affected. Speaking from experience, on a 1997 Chevy Venture that I had. The head gasket went, after fixing that myself, a year and a half later my camshaft cracked in half. I believe the stess of coolant getting into the cylinder stressed my camshaft (through the valvetrain)but the problem didn't show up for a year and a half later.

Dropped off at dealer Thursday for excessive tapping, as noted by my service guy. Told today new head on it's way along with some other parts, due to a misfire in cylinder, will update you when I get more information from Tech's. That above was relayed to me by dealer secretary. This was my first trip to dealer, even for oil change, at 14,000 miles, and engine built in August 2011. I got no problems so far, and at this point am a little satisfied I got no grief over replacement.

Edit: No check engine light.

did you have a CEL? I am experiencing the same thing and I am wondering if I am gonna go through the ringer? I currently have the "TICK" but no CEL.. have they streamlined the process and just cut to the chase now?

MIL = malfunction indicator lamp and you will see that one used interchangeably with the CEL for future reference.

I never had a CEL, but it wasn't like the dealer could claim my tick was normal either. It was pretty horrendous. You can get them to pull the valve cover and check the tolerances on the ticking head if you don't have a CEL. Mine had loose lifters on #2 and #4, so they replaced the head.

So, it appears the majority of the responders that opined in this thread think it is a good idea to put 25k to 35k on a new Wrangler with an approximate 2% (or greater long term) failure rate and rely on the short term warranty to take care of a problem the cause and remedy of which is unknown to the buying public.



Me thinks that is a ridiculous recommendation.

i think it's a good idea to drive the vehicle that you purchased. Something that could happen or might happen 5 years down the line is something I can't control. So why stress out about it? It's not like anyone can do anything about it.

what would you recommend?

Most rational posters realize that the problem will eventually result in a recall or extended warranty on the problem.

I don't think most rational people think that at all watson. Do you have any past experience with that being the case? I sure don't. Feel free to believe that if you want I suppose.

No one knows. I'm assuming (hoping) it has been fixed with the AC head.

I would "hope" Chrysler would take care of everyone. But nothing they have done to date leads to believe that will happen. The only "causes" they have given us don't even make sense. Was it something that was machined wrong...or is it bad gas and user error? And if it is either of those, why was a 3rd head produced?

I sincerely doubt there will be a recall, since most if not all recalls have as their basis a safety issue. What is the safety issue with a ticking or blown head?

My recommendation would be a boycott until Jeep issues transferable life of the vehicle warranties for Wranglers through the 2015MY. Surely they will have it fixed by then.
