Bought this jeep 3 months ago with 19k on it, expecting to have a ride that was dependable and trustworthy for many more. After 3 months or endless problems, I've made my mind up to start shopping next week for something to dump this thing for.
2 weeks after buying it, I experienced a major death wobble. Took it to the mechanics and with the help of Jerry Bransford, discovered a dropped pitman arm and few other things were installed when it was lifted that shouldn't be there or were done wrong.
$500 later, this is all put back in order, with the exception that now the whole front end is shifted to the right 4 inches outside the track of the rear wheels. Mechanic says another $400 to put a fix to this.
Then tranmission starts hard shifting into 2nd. Took it back in yesterday, Mechanic made some adjustments to somekind of balls or something that weren't aligning properly. Picked it up and drove home and nothing has changed. (atleast he didn't charge me for whatever he said he did).
Did say to bring it back in a week if not happy and they'd have to work on the synchronizers. Many more hundreds for this I expect. I've decided to cut my losses, dump this thing and be done with jeeps.
