    Took the wife out looking for myself a 4 door Jeep. I’ve always wanted one for a toy. Anyhow, after driving several the wife decides she wants one for her everyday driver.

    We end up buying a new rubicon...

    Awesome!

    I've been thinking about getting one for a long time now. I just can't pull the trigger on a $40,000 vehicle. I hate having car payments. I do miss my Jeep's.

    It's crazy how much they are now. I was looking at a Sahara with most of the options. The rubicon is a bit of overkill for me.

    I have had 3 wranglers. Love them

    It is insane. This was the last of the ‘old’ body style 18s so I got a great buy on it.

    I went in over the winter and tried to get one, but the dealers up here no they don't have to deal on wranglers. They have almost outsold toyota camrys now.

    If the dealer would had met my number I would have bought it. So I went and bought a Volvo convertible instead. Oh well. Maybe next year.

    Let me start by saying you got a great looking Jeep. My wife has a Trailhawk model Cherokee which I like a lot. Except for one thing. There is a NOTORIOUS issue with the Pentastar 3.6L V6 which I believe is the same engine standard in the Rubicon. I searched to see if they had done anything to fix the problem and it looks like the answer is no unfortunately. At some point (usually after about 30k miles but almost always before 50k) it is going to potentially dump QUARTS of oil all over the ground beneath it. You can Google "oil leak..." and find no end to information out there about the issue. Here is a video example



    We just experienced it ourselves a few months ago. Had it idling on the drive one cold morning and came out to find a HUGE mess. At least the work was done under warranty. I had to clean the 3' x 4' oil puddle on my concrete driveway myself.:mad:
    My advice to you is either do your own oil changes or take it to a dealer each time. There is a funky housing that holds a replaceable filter element MOUNTED UNDER THE INTAKE that eventually always cracks causing the massive leak. Jiffy Lube type techs likely are not aware and probably could not care anyway and only accelerate the likelihood of damage.

    My plan is to replace the part again in after about 36k miles or three years, whichever comes first.
