- The 2007 Wrangler was affected by issues on multiple fronts ranging from its steering to its fuel system.
- The 2008 Wrangler was affected by similar problems as the 2007 model, including faulty airbags that caused a major recall.
- Similar to the older models, the 2012 Wrangler issues with the airbags were the main culprit. However, a new problem with this model’s airbags also caused another airbag-related recall that affected millions of vehicles.
The Jeep Wrangler is a range of compact and mid-size (Wrangler Unlimited and Wrangler 2-door JL) off-road SUVs, produced by Jeep as 1986 across fourth generations. The Wrangler JL, the most recent generation, was revealed in 2017.
The Wrangler is powered by a standard 285-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic. A turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain is optional and adds up with an electric motor to provide additional low-end power. Wranglers are off-road ready by default, so four-wheel drive is standard across the range and is managed by a lever on the center console.
The base two-door Wrangler Sport with the V-6 and the six-speed manual transmission accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds.
