Money Pit Wrangler TJ
by (No Name Given)
I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler TJ(4.0 inline 6 cylinder). The Hardtop leaks terribly, and water runs from the back of the vehicle to the front floor mats. My dealership put silicone gaskets around the rear vents on the hardtop and declared it fixed. However, it is still horribly leaky and now the interior smells of mildew. I am furious, but there is not much I can do now. I sent off many an e-mail to Jeep on their website, however I doubt I'll ever get a response.
Is there anyone who has fixed this problem successfully?
I also had tachometer and speedometer problems falling to zero, but dealer ship did fix that and said it was under recall. Steering wheel makes annoying and embarrassing squealing noise when its cold, and believe me it gets cold here in Kansas. Transmission makes weird noise when I shift into reverse, and lurches when I shift out of reverse. Air conditioner knob broken in a weird way, the third dot setting turns the blower off and will not work.
Unless you want to drive a money pit, for off-road fun do not buy a Jeep. Low gas mileage, Uncomfortable ride, expensive problems, cheaply built vehicle. Do not say I didn't warn you.
