Phrasing!

Giggle

So many ~Zingers in here you could get nailed by a ricochet! HA!

I'd say something about my '03 Ford Focus but you could probably imagine. Currently the speedometer is pegged at 140mph+ and won't move, though the fuel and battery gauges work when they feel like it. Can't track the problem down, been to three different techs. Not paying $400 to rip the damn dash out when it's probably just a wire shorting out somewhere. As long as it doesn't turn the car into a fiberglass candle, I'm good. I will say that the day the timing chain broke, I just about pissed myself! Between the BANG! and the metal grinding noises, I thought the whole engine was coming apart. Thankfully it didn't do any permanent damage. The kid at the auto parts store wondered why I was even bothering putting a new on after that, surely it was toast. Glad I didn't listen to him, not that I would have anyway.

Still miss my father's Chevy S-10! (please excuse the blur) Fastest thing on the road in three counties (probably)....V6/Auto w/stick on the floor, dual-exhaust, lowered, chip changed, bored and channeled (Whatever that means...I'm a pc guy, not a car guy, sorry), sunroof, bucket seats, racing steering wheel and am/fm cassette with a cd adapter! (That was my contribution) Was my dad's baby, he made a custom fiberglass front end and rear pan. That truck got me a lot of ass in the 90's! If those seats could talk...

Yep. That dude is obviously just taking one example of a bad car (which ALL brands will have from time to time) and blowing it up out of proportion. I've seen morons do that so many times it becomes pretty obvious now.


Not surprising seeing his comment history. There are some on this site that really make me wonder...

Don't worry about it, moron, JD Power's 2017 reliability rating safely trumps your anecdotal presumption.

Dodge, Jeep and Fiat are 4th worst, 2nd worst and worst, respectively. Since it's all the same company (FCA), I'm going to go with them being pretty damn unreliable.

But keep wondering there, champ.


It’s been documented time and time again that these “independent reliability” companies (ie. Consumer reports,etc) are bias. It also has also been documented that they “interview” specific groups to get the outcome they are looking for. Same goes for politics.

Show me a comparable vehicle to the Jeep Wrangler, that has the same capabilities, gets abused off road, and keeps going! There is a reason the Wrangler, in some form, has been around since the 1940s.

Drive your “reliable” Toyota or Honda through the rough mountains of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado year after year and the true reliability numbers will surface! I could go on and on!!

Once you own a Jeep, then come back to me with facts! Until then keep you inaccurate opinions to yourself.

78 Jeep Cherokee Levi Special Edition. Was a gas guzzling steel tank. Until shit broke down on it from everyday driving. I miss the monster, but not the repair costs.

99.9999% of people never take their cars through the rough mountains, so they care more about not having to constantly repair things that occur during their commute to and from work, not during offroading.

I take that back. I finally had to replace the sparkplugs and wire harness, and valve cover seal from the factory ones.
I had to replace the dome lightbulb in my Accord after 6 years, what a piece of shit.

I had the drive shaft rip loose in my Land Rover...

Do you know how LOUD it is when your drive shaft isn't connected at the diff end? Spinning around like a goddamn propeller, bouncing off everything.

Total repair bill: £70. When your Honda does break down - on the other side of town - what'll that cost you?
Ucrazy ???

Just comparing how reliable our vehicles are, I think we're at the opposite ends of the scale. On the other hand, I like the prices I pay for parts.

Land Rovers are notoriously unreliable, but they maintain their value because they're cheap and easy to maintain. Jeeps might be similar, they're not as basic but they might be easier to maintain than your average vehicle.

Where there's smoke there's often fire. My landlord in law school bought a 70s Jaguar E-Type. Everyone told him they catch on fire, and he laughed. Within 6 months it caught on fire. So, where there's smoke there's often fire, literally.

But there are exceptions. Not cars, but so many here seem to have had awful Razer experiences, but mine has been running strong for a decade.

Yeah, I find it weird when some people rag on certain vehicles just because of hearsay and not personal experience. I once owned a Triumph TR6 for a few yeas and everyone always went on about Lucas electrics on what a problem this car would be. Had it for 3 years, it was a blast and I had zero problems with it.

My Sonata just turned 10 years old this year and I'm going to unload it in the spring and get something new - looking at the Subaru Crosstreks atm - and the car has been amazing...until now. All of a sudden it seems everything is falling apart on it. And this is not a car that has been driven hard - currently sitting at 97K KM. Had to replace brake lines - they were rusted out - and the engine manifold gasket because it was leaking too much oil, and the check engine light has been on for a year now and I've had 2 smoke tests - my mechanic and ever took it to the dealership - and no one can figure out what the problem is - they assume it's a pinhole leak in the neck of the gas tank. Apart from that my mechanic says it's very sound. So my personal experience with Hyundai is great cars until they get around 10 years old.

I'd have to say that's a fair statement. I also think it depends on how one treats their vehicles. I've had pretty darn good luck with most of them, even non-mopar brands.

My Son-in-law has had nothing but trouble with his Diesel RAM... but he's modified the heck out of it, so he keeps blowing transmissions. He accepts that as part of the performance modifications he has made. /shrug
I am sure your Son-in-law has looked into this, but there has to be a couple of shops who specialize in building "tough as hell" transmissions for modded ram diesel pickups.
Of course they won't be cheap but neither is replacing a blown tranny.

Ferraris also have amongst the highest resale values, want to argue they're reliable?

Simple fact: Jeeps are amongst the least reliable cars on the road. This doesn't mean they're unreliable, as these days nearly every brand is pretty damn reliable, but Jeeps are, and always have been, at the bottom of nearly any survey. Consumer Reports just this week ranked them 20, up from 23 last year. That's out of 27. JD Power puts them at 29 of 33.

It makes some sense: if consumers flock to your car even when it isn't very reliable, how much is working to make it amongst the most reliable really going to improve sales?

This doesn't mean they're bad cars, they're just on the bottom of reliability.

Since I'm a MOPAR guy (Hellcat Challenger, Magnum, and looking at a Jeep Wrangler in the near future... have had Charger, Durango, RAMs (Plural), and a Ramcharger.)

I'll just have to disagree with Creston.

That said, the lower end models (Dart, Avenger, 200, Liberty, etc. etc.) are definitely crap.

But I would say GM is in the same boat, maybe slightly better.

Ford seems to be the only company of the "Big Three" that can make a decent cheap / compact car to compete with the foreign imports.
