2012 - year of the lemon
 
Is it just me or do the 12's seem to have a lot of issues?

Maybe I just got damn lucky (knocking on wood) but I have had zero issues with my 09 and she just turned 70,000.

Go suck one, a lemon that is. :whistling: I love my 2012.

noogajeepster 03-07-2012 08:06 PM

I haven't had any problems out of mine (5k and still rolling). Knock on wood is right...but I bargained with the dealer (bought last week of December) and I have a 75K bumper to bumper warranty.

New2012JEEP 03-07-2012 08:12 PM

Knock on wood as typing. I have 4k miles, 3 months, not a single issue yet.

Mwerley2012 03-07-2012 08:15 PM

5500 miles picked up dec 21st. Nothing wrong. But I can't seem to get the smile off my face.

New2012JEEP 03-07-2012 08:27 PM

A. Engine wont start tomorrow
B. I will have engine knock (Oh No!)
C. My top will leak
D. I will have Kens poopy rear squat :p

poduck69 03-07-2012 08:27 PM

brand new 2012=long time for warranty. not worried if I have issues, but if I do, that's what the warranty is for.

pdubois64 03-07-2012 08:43 PM

A few people with "the tick" is all that I'm aware of, hardly entering lemon territory.

jp2611 03-07-2012 08:46 PM

When ever a large quantity of anything is made, there is a chance some of them will have issues. When I think of the stories from the '70 and '80s ALL VEHICLES ....rusting out, paint peeling, breaking down, 100k miles it was junk,........I am really very satisfied with my '12.

There will be some with issues as anything, that is what the warranty is for. I can only say I hope my JK treats me as well as my TJ has. :)

What issues are you referring to? I, like the others, have 5000+ trouble free miles on mine. Only real issue I have is finding time to wheel it.

i82much 03-07-2012 09:01 PM

Do you feel better about your slow jeep now?

kjeeper10 03-07-2012 09:02 PM

Just like every 07-08 sucks oil and leaks :)

Barrie 03-07-2012 09:04 PM

Keep it polite and civil folks or infractions WILL be handed out. Thanks. :thumb:

OH9JK 03-07-2012 09:06 PM

People seek out avenues to vent their problems as apposed to seeking out avenues to praise things. Go to any vehicle forum and dig around, you will find A LOT more problems. I am actually surprised on how little the complaints and problems are here. This is my 5th Jeep and I've never had any major problems (at least that I didn't cause).

Philster 03-07-2012 09:16 PM

I have only 1500 miles on my 2012, I am glad to hear most all are having good luck with the Jeeps. Its my first and i am just loving it!:dance:

Osage Orange 03-07-2012 09:17 PM

I ordered mine almost as simple as a Jeep can get so I can focus on just a few drips of lemon juice instead of getting a full glass of it.:D

clvnmcd 03-07-2012 09:17 PM

8,500 miles, and no problems and I love it more every day

clvnmcd 03-07-2012 09:27 PM

What is it with the 2012 lemon threads are these people misinformed, jealous, or just trolls.. The 2012 hasn't even been out long enough to make that kind of determination.

sandbaja 03-07-2012 09:29 PM

Lemon? Mine has been perfect and virtually flawless..even with a head replacement. I still look for reasons to drive it.:D
