2007 Jeep Wrangler Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.

Drive Train -- Verified

Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Leakage from the transfer case normally occurs at the case-mating surfaces and require removal of the transfer case to reseal.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.

Brakes -- Verified

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.

2007 Jeep Wrangler Reviews

Less than 57,000 miles, serviced regularly, severe engine knocking developed suddenly driving at 45 mph. Driven easily. Several diagnostics later, my only option is to "replace the engine". Additionally, front end shaking occurs randomly, usually when using 4wheel drive mode. But, no rhyme or reason. Unpredictable.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones from reading these different posts. I have had mine since April of 2007. Drove it off the lot with 4 miles on it. I have done everything imaginable to the jeep (lift, bumpers, wheels, tires, new top). I have 65k mile on her as well. May not seem like I drive it a lot but I do, every single day. Im just one of those that has not worked very far from home. Average commute was about 14 miles for the first 3 yrs. These last 3 yrs have been about 28 mile commute. I have been offroad numerouos times. Love to play whenever I get the change. The only issue I have had with the Jeep was the O2 Sensor about 2 weeks after I got it and just recently the airbag light came on. So that was under the manufacturers warranty. Besides me having to take her in for a front seal replacement this comig weekend, I love this Jeep. Paid for and no problems. Like I said, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

Not too impressed with the interior set up and the stereo. I mean, the 2006 TJ's were loaded!! Then you goto the JK and it was so darn basic. Softtops - you better have patience with the usual leaking when it rains. Or buy an aftermarket softop. This is what I did after 5 yrs. Now it doesn't leak - THAT BAD. LOL!!

Ok so got this 2007 Jeep direct order from factory delivered to my dealer.
love it
except i am experiencing the same lot of problems listed by everyone else.
i currently have 187,000 miles on this bitch!
i guess that is good considering the stories thus far
BUT my biggest problem is the engine knock!
had a cylinder misfire show up at 155,000
my mechanic tried to alleviate the problem within his ability but to no avail
took it to a jeep dealer for the proper tests - compression etc.
they said it needed a new engine - nice
then i got the infamous Death wobble showing up at 185000
at 46 mph the shake was unreal and would not stop with acceleration or braking till like 30mph
took to mechanic, checked everything
he could not figure it out
I swapped tires from back to front, that worked temporarily.
does not happen as much although every little bump feels like it can shake
took it back to mechanic told him to change steeering dampner and re torque track bars according to some forum posts.
he checked the ball joints and said they need to be replaced as well
getting ready to do them soon but have not really had death wobble
i'm gonna run the engine into the ground, as i have already resigned myself to getting a new engine
but certainly was not planning on replacing the engine on this thing but it is waht it is.
i have had every little thing on this serviced by my company mechanic since purchase
everyone would ask about the knock and why don't i do something about it but really what can be done other than a complete engine tear down and rebuild was my answer to0 the tune of how much?

Purchased 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara Worst purchase EVER! Only plus to this vehicle is it will go anywhere! The 2007 4 door has the DEATH WOBBLE! Even though Chrysler will not accept any liability, it is real and really scary! Will shake you so bad your head and teeth hurt! Spent over a thousand on repairs the dealer said would resolve the problem. Sold back to the dealer, Chrysler inspecter said replace steering dampner, dealer did what he said and it still wobbles! Luckily it is the deelers problem now! Awesome looking ride, as long as you don't have to drive it! The wobble has something to do with cold weather. By the way, it is not the tires, other comments will say it is, but those were replaced also! My husband was very upset, it was his dream car, but we had no other choice with this vehicle! We will never purchase another Chrysler product! There response to this is a joke! I am sure this "wobble" has caused many accidents!

Found out that our 2007 Wrangler Unlimited with 45,000 spun a bearing. Dealer wanted $6,500 to replace the motor. Dealer said they wanted to help me out but Chrysler needed more oil change receipts. Called Chrysler and they said they wished they could help me but the Dealer needed more oil change receipts. Bottom line - we were on our own. Chrysler's Unlimited Drivetrain Warranty is WORTHLESS!! Both Chrysler and the dealer made me feel it was all my fault for not maintaining the Jeep according to factory recommendations. There is no way an engine should fail at 45,000 miles. I will never ever buy another Jeep or Chrysler product!
