The Jeep Wrangler, while one of the most iconic 4x4s in existence, has had its share of issues over the years that tend to leave owners feeling less than satisfied with the quality of their purchase. Luckily, there are many things you can do to take care of your Jeep Wrangler and make sure it lasts you as long as possible before something goes wrong with it. Here are just some of the tips everyone ought to know about Jeep Wranglers before buying one for themselves.
Over 50% of drivers ask me if they should get a Jeep Wrangler. Because it’s so popular, I’ve taken a special interest in Jeeps and have learned a thing or two about them over my years of driving and fixing cars. Because I get asked so often, here are some answers to questions people might be afraid to ask! Maybe you just bought one and don’t know how well it will do for you. Maybe you’re looking at one as your next car purchase (I wouldn’t blame you!) but aren’t sure if it has longevity or if it could end up costing you lots of money.
The Durability of the Jeep
The Jeep Wrangler is a four-wheel drive car, which means that it’s capable of handling all types of terrain. If you want to explore rugged wilderness areas, you’ll be happy with its ability to venture into places other cars simply can’t. As an added bonus, Jeep designed its four-wheel drive system for use on both paved and dirt roads—you won’t have to worry about damaging your vehicle when you leave pavement. In addition, Jeep specifically manufactured these vehicles for rough use; they are built to last. The company uses strong steel frames and top-notch parts and accessories in all of their products.
The Reliability of the Engine
The engine in the Wrangler is capable of taking on a lot of abuse; however, there are a few aspects you want to watch out for. First and foremost, because it is so hardy, problems can be ignore for longer than they should be. Make sure that you get your oil change every 3,000 miles at least and look out for black smoke as it could mean excessive blow-by. Also keep an eye on your coolant levels and make sure they don’t drop too much when you’re running at highway speeds. The most common reason coolant levels fall is due to a leak in your water pump—the most likely place of failure on any car. Luckily all these parts are cheap and easy fixes if diagnosed early enough.
Design, Style, and Price
Despite their reputation for off-road prowess, Jeep models are generally no more reliable than any other automobile. That said, if you’re looking for a new vehicle that looks great on or off-road and won’t break your bank account, Jeep is a viable option. The automaker offers four distinct jeep wrangler colors: beige, white, black and silver. Aside from style differences and optional packages, there isn’t much difference between different models.
