Hey out there in Jeep Land:

We just had delivered a new Jeep Wrangler SPort with a standard transmission. From the start, we had some noticable rattling noise in 3rd and 4rth gear. The dealer listened to it, and is now planning on replacing the entire transmission! Has anyone else had this problem? I am hoping this doesn't speak to the overall reliability of the Jeep. It gets too cold here in Minnesota to have a car break down.

Don't be surprised if the replacement transmission also rattles in 3rd gear. It known in Jeep Land as "Wrangler Rattle". Most of us have learned to love it.

Mine doesn't rattle. If it did, I wouldn't be content to live with it. Not with something like the transmission. But I'm anal that way. :D

When you get your Jeep back, gorilla, it should NOT rattle.

Welcome to WF, by the way. :thumb:

Time to trade for a auto. Very few rattle, better in the hills and on the trails. Manuals are for lawn mowers, and Manual is for mowing your yard.

I haven't noticed any rattle on my 6-speed '12...I would definitely take it in and not settle for a diagnosis of wrangler rattle... Get it fixed!

So, then some autos rattle. Never heard of that. My manual works great. No issues. But, if you're bashing manuals I'll just stand by. :popcorn: Oh, I get it "Manual". :rolleyes:

Autos can make every noise under the sun when they are dying and on their last leg. Clunks, bangs, pops and all kinds of wines and rattles.

Thanks to all for your posts. It is good to know what is typical and what is not when talking to the dealer about this. Any other common problems I should look out for?

I prefer an auto since I am constantly dealing with rugrats and dogs when we geo cache and a manual would be one more issue

Mine only has 470 miles on it and it sometimes rattles in 3rd, as well as pops out of 4th when it's cold and randomly as well. Should I be worried?
