Interesting story. Was relaying this to some friends of ours. They said their cx5 mazda was recently giving issues at least a year out of warranty, went to a few workshops who couldn't figure out what was happening. Sent them to mazda, who decided to swap the engine for free even though it was out of warranty. They didn't ask or anything, just did it for them

Or just not buy into all the media bull$#%t. Jeep are no worse than any other manufacturer. Were's the same level of bashing for Toyota's and their DPFs, Ford's and their gearboxes, Nissan's hand grenade engines? The list goes on. The guy who had the destroy my jeep campaign did a lot of damage but also achieved a lot of good for the Jeep brand. I wonder if there should be a destroy my Toyota campaign? I bet we would see the same people come out and start bashing them too (and probably have never owned one just like they've never owned a Jeep).

Reading this same crap from the regular Jeep bashers over and over again gets a bit tiring.

And where is Codogan's video (or the rest of the media for that matter) explaining how Jeep will be fixing the car?

Hey Dicko.

There is a 25 year old stunner who works in a coffee shop I frequent that owns a jeep Cherokee. Must as her if she's a masochist.

Could be fun.

Reading this same crap from the regular Jeep bashers over and over again gets a bit tiring. Especially as there is a hell of a lot of pissed off owners of jeeps.

And where is Codogan's video (or the rest of the media for that matter) explaining how Jeep will be fixing the car?

Sales figures reflect the attitude of people to jeep vehicles. Buyers are getting smarter, due to easy fact checking on google, social media and word of mouth. Media bullshit helps people buy cars. Seen bugger all media beat ups about the Pajero...or is this just a media cover up?

Pretty much sums it up...

There was a part media beat up on the Par recall due to I believe a steering arm issue on the latest model Paj..but it is how the vehicle manufacturers deal with the issues that can sway the potential buyer...
Jeep...it is the importer / manufacturer which has let the product down with their absolute contempt towards their customers, their stonewalling, denighing and outright ignorance...not once, but on numerous occasions.
The Jeep was a 2013 model and had a second owner...eventually the owner had to revert to media "shaming" to have their complaint seriously looked at by the manufacturer / importer..it just adds another black mark and prejudice against the product.

Sadly all of that means nothing when your
1. broken down
2. trying to sell a make and model with known issues

If only they were made in Japan
