The iconic Jeep Wrangler has a loyal following, thanks to its classic design, rugged image and legendary history. With an updated powertrain, this may be the best version yet, but the Wrangler is seriously outdated in the modern world. While designed for capable offroading ability, on the road performance is uncivilized. The ride is unsettled, sometimes even snappy. Handling is very clumsy.

Heater system

"The heater core was partially blocked due to sand in the coolant due to how the cylinder head was cast (and not flushed) in mexico per the dealer. THis resulted ina NO HEAT condition on the drivers side, cold air oputput only on the drivers side heater/vennt ducts AND cold air only on the drivers side of the windshield on the defrost cycle, rendering it unusable in cold weather/winter driving. I had the heater core replaced after multiple coolant system flushes. Cost of heater core replacement was $900"

Anonymous, NY (2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport 3.6-L V6)

"Car stopped producing heat"

Anonymous, NY (2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport 3.6-L V6)

"During the winter months, my Jeep has plenty f heat on the passnger side floor , dashboard/vent areas and windshield defroster ducts. On the drivers side, it is a joke. The air temperature on the far right dash vent was 170 degrees F. On the far left (drivers side) it was 83 degrees F at an outside air temp of 20 degrees F. My wife complained of always being too hot, whle I (driving) was freezing), Finally I used a thermometer to confirm what I felt. COLD air. It;s tougher to clear a frosty windshield, etc. The Jeep dealer told me that my heater core is plugged from sand in the engine left behind in the casting process of engine manufacture of the block. I replied, well my Jeep still has the original factory coolant, it is less than 10 years or 100,000 miles on the coolant, so any blockage is Jeep's (Fiat Chrysler America) Fault. The reply was the warranty had expired. I then replied that I had the top of the line, bumper to bumper aftermarket warrantt (by Protfolio) sold to me at time of vehcile sale by the dealer). The dealer replied that while it is an excellent warranty, it specifically doesn't cover blockages of any sort. They told me they argued with Portfolio and were told that they wouldn't pay for it. The cost f a new heater core is $100 The cost of replacing it (the dashboard must be removed and replaced is $1,600. I paid the dealer to flush out the coolant system and replace it with new Mopar factory cllant. It was done. I got heat back for about 3 weeks. It's warmer out now. MT daughter goes to college this fall up near the Canadian Border. I am hoping that either I win the lottery or some other fortunate event takes place as I sure don't have the $1,600 to pay for repairs that should not be my responsibility. Not my fault. I have another 3 plus years in payments on this Jeep. This is my eighth Jeep. It may very well be my last if I end up having to pay for this repair."

Geoffrey H., NY (2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport 3.6-L V6)

"I had 85 degree heat in the winter on the drivers side on my jeep, 145 degrees on passenger side, same with defrost. Winter driving affected due to icing in windshield, driver comfort. Dealer stated cylinder head is made in Mexico in a sand cast process, and the sand is not flushed out completely, causing sand to settle in lowest part of coolant system, which is the heater core . Heater core was blocked by sand which typically hardens Heater core MAY be flushed out but they would not guarantee repair, recommended repair was heater core replacement. Dealer stated my factory warranty had expired, heater core was NOT covered by my aftermarket bumper to bumper extended warranty (Portfolio brand) sold by the dealer to me. They stated it specifically excludes blockages. Estimated cost of repair there was $1,500. My research on the web on Jeep Wrangler owners forums showed many many people with the same complaint. Some also had sand blockages in their radiators and also in their coolant recovery containers as well. I had the dealer flush it and paid for it myself. I regained heat for about a month. I later had the heater core replaced by an independent mechanic shop who performed all the work satisfactorily for cheaper than the dealer quoted. I noted there are 2 class action lawsuits against Chrysler/Jeep for this problem and their not covering the repair. Neither are in my state. I hope someone will compel Jeep to take charge of the problem and do the repairs at no cost, as well as reimburse owners like me who have had the work done themselves. sure didn't buy a Jeep (my eighth!) to NOT drive it in the winter when 4 wheel drive is needed! I live in NY State, and my daughter was attending college near the Canadian Border."

TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS
Oct 08 2014
If the TPMS light illuminates because the sensors cannot be located, it could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Summary:
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2014 Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles manufactured March 20, 2014, to April 22, 2014, and 2014 Jeep Wrangler vehicles manufactured March 21, 2014, to April 22, 2014. Due to a software error, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may fail to learn the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven. As a result, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate, despite the the tire pressures being within specification. Should one of the tires lose air pressure, the driver would not be notified of the change in air pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."
What should you do:
Chrysler has notified owners, and dealers will reprogram the TPMS module, free of charge. The recall began on October 23, 2014. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P63.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
