I have never had a car had so much go wrong so often. Do any of you wj owners have so many problems with reliability or is mine just a friday afternoon job.

Not very good comments  about a wj especially when iam going to look at a silver 04  with very low mileage

Still love mine, even if it has been off the road since May whilst trying to sort out problems with it.  Its all fixed now though, but I had to resort to taking it into a garage to be fixed  :oops: something i've never had to do before......

 

Still wouldn't get rid of it  :icon_e_biggrin:

You can have problems with any vehicle don't think the WJ is worse than any other.

Any vehicle of this age can be due for a few issues mine was a nightmare to get sorted but now I love it.

Don't know about the V8 but the 4 litre engine is pretty bomb proof.

Mixed bag by sounds of it. Mine goes in Wednesday for a another whining sound. New window mech ordered from eBay.  Hopefully this will be the end to it all!

I've had my WJ 4.0 for just over a year now, it's mileage was slightly higher than yours when I bought it (c75k) and it needed new tracking rods or something when it had its MOT done plus a couple of other bits but damage was only about £500 inc a set of ATs. Other than that I've only had to replace both front window regulators (one was broken when I bought it, the other went 2 weeks ago) and a rear light cluster. Needs something done on its front brakes now as I've apparently managed to get a stone stuck and scored one but that's not major work.

Scoring isn't usually a problem unless braking performance has been affected in some way. I always take the stone shields off my Jeeps and run the discs 'naked'. I have never had a damaged caliper or disc since 2001. If you plan on doing this, some brake setups need a spacer washer the same thickness as the stone shield.
