Looks/Style Ranked 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited worse.
"The 2018 Rubicon JL is rusting out on the frame after only 2600 miles and has been in the shop for electrical and computer issues. First the frame is rusting at major weld points and will not hold paint on the frame. I have looked at 3 other Wrangler JLs to check for the same issues and it they all have the same poor weld issues. Currently I am battling Jeep to get this vehicle returned under the lemon law and there customer service and attitude has been horrible. I cant believe I have done business with such a poor company representing a great brand. The second issue is pretty major. 6 times now the vehicle has flashed an error message about the Vehicle is about to stop and pullover soon. Before I can get somewhere safe to stop the vehicle loses power, the 4x4 system randomly seem to try and engage and the sway bars disengaged. The screens go black and then the jeep loses all power to the drive train while I am going down the road. The 2018 JL Wrangler is an abyssmal POS and higly recommend everyone do not buy and stay away until the issues have been worked out. "
Would Buy Ranked 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited better.
"The JK is more reliable and trustworthy than the JL. I am demanding a buyback from Jeep for my 2018 Rubicon. The new JL is a POS I want my JK back. "
