Could be a lot of things, but if your MIL light is on it means something IS wrong. Don't disconnect your battery. Take it to the dealer. Could be a cylinder misfire left or right side along with a few other things. Don't wait.

· 2015 Wrangler Unlimited
· Wrangler Willy Wheeler W
· 5 speed Automatic Transmission
· 3-Piece Hard Top (MX3)
· Alpine 9 speaker Premium Audio System with Sub (RC9)
· Uconnect 430 with Navigation *
· Side Airbags

(*Some dealer tell me that I cannot get the 430N on a Willys? this true?)

So far, the best deal I have been quoted is 34,479 + tax, title & license (SoCal). Am i going about this process the right way? Is this a good deal in your opinion?

Regards,
Gobo

I'm not sure if that's a good deal or not. Your goal is to aim for 1-5% below invoice. Depending on where in SoCal you are you're probably going to be a lot closer to 1% than 5% as demand is so high that I've heard heavy discounts are rare - maybe our Cali jeep folks can chime in, we have a few.

Good luck!
I agree with kev. Check out this post:

It's from another thread, but hopefully it will help:

Also, there are some other tips in post one of the 2015 waiting room.

I had a bottle of Sheffield's black porcelain touch up paint that works well. I keep several colors on hand for touching up sinks, appliances and whatnot. It comes in a nail polish size bottle.

Yep that was me always a great cheap touch up. Only $2 a bottle at walgreens and very easy to apply.

I ordered 23W, premium soft top, supp airbags, and alpine audio (with the U130). Very happy with the sound (although this is my first jeep so I'm not sure how bad they used to be) and really like the top.

Installed the rear seat recline kit from Ebay after picking it up. Will install clear sidemarkers, Rugged Ridge Mesh Grill kit, and Quadratec Hitch/Harness (picked up for $80 I think) this weekend.

Really happy with how the Anvil Willys turned out.
Good choice!

hey I hope it gets resolved what a pain. But a leaky jeep will rust out faster over the years.

I really want my Jeep to not leak, I've already written a letter to Chrysler to give then "lemon notice" as required by my state to proceed with the lemon paperwork, I just can't bring myself to send it. I love my Jeep and honestly don't want another one. That being said, if it's not fixed this time I guess I have no choice but to proceed.

All projects and off roading are on hold until I figure this out.

What a bummer, Kev. I hope they figure it out and can fix it so you don't have to go the lemon route.

I'm pretty sure someone (maybe Kev) did that early on and used some black nail polish.

Welcome. Good to see the 2015s are popular too. Wish Jeep would release sales numbers on their special editions, it would be interesting to see how popular the Willys actually is. Seems to be the most popular special edition on the thread, but I don't see a ton on the road. I do see a lot of Freedom editions though.
