I have had alot of problems with the steering. Its very difficult to steer as it often wants to drive off the road and over meridians, down ditches, etc

Noticed mine does the same. The steering was off enough it drove itself through the woods.

Actually have had zero issue with our '15.

almost 400 miles and the only problem is that I can't drive it while at work. It just sits there... all alone..

At 1300. In the last 100 miles I have developed a knocking noise like a loose accessory belt or something. The noise disappears when the clutch is engaged.

Other than that, life has been good.

So, from what I see in that long thread about cracked oil coolers, it's really the oil filter housing cracking from over torqueing the filter cover? I've done probably 30 oil changes on the 3.6 engine and have never see that happen.

for what it's worth I have a 2013 w/ 32k miles with exactly zero problems...that weren't caused by me

My wife's '10 Toyota Rav4 has been recalled several times. So far the Jeep is winning the reliability contest...who'd of thought!

I know there are probably a few differences between 2013-2015 but the majority should be same.

My 2015 has the gap under the head unit (730N). There's a thread about the issue for 2013's. Still a problem in 2015's.

No issues here, had our 15 for about 5 weeks and 1100 miles. Have taken the hard top off several times, put it back on. No leaks, no noises. It's everything I would expect from a new Jeep.

I noticed the warping of the dash below the head unit in my new Hard Rock as I drove it home from the dealership. After reading the thread about it, I doubt I'll have the dash replaced because others say it keeps coming back. JEEP needs to come up with a real fix, because I expected a better fit and finish from a $47k vehicle.

It's more like a 25k vehicle with 22k in options.

My 2011 has it also, actually do not think its a problem. It is actually just a finger rest for when you are changing stations while hitting bumps.

Rear axle seal failed and was leaking by 150 miles. At 1500 now and all is well.

I have had they Willy's for 6 weeks and have about 2500 miles on it. I have had all the doors off, soft top off many times. Have been through several hard rains and several brush less car washes. Nothing but a joy to drive and no issues. Changing oil and tire rotation next week. Just wish winter was coming cause I hate to drive with the top on...

LOL - I was wondering about that one earlier today when I read it. He must live in warm, sunny FL or Phoenix, AZ.

I just drove mine 400 miles up to Traverse City from Grand Rapids, MI and back. Absolute joy to drive. So far it's averaging 21.8 mpg (according to the computer). Drove through a monsoon on the way home and did notice some hydroplaning. No leaks thank goodness. Biggest issue I've had is the soccer moms driving the 4 door jk's not giving me the jeep wave back.

I've got ~2500 miles on mine. The last two weeks or so, I've noticed when I hit a bump in the road going 40-45 mph I get a bad shimmy in the steering. Feels like I'm driving over a washboard road. Also, feels like there is more slop in the steering than I'd expect from a brand new vehicle.
