2013 Jeep Wrangler ProblemsFront and Rear Differential Pinion Seal and Transfer Case Leaks
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.
Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.
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.
2013 Jeep Wrangler QuestionsHow do I stop the rock rail from 'popping' when I turn my jeep? Bushings? (1 answer)
I just bought a 2013 Jeep Rubicon. The dealer tells me the popping I hear when I turn either right or left is from the after market rock rails that were on it when I bought it. Other than remove them: what can I do to stop the noise? I need the step to get up into the jeep.

2013 Jeep Wrangler RecallsDriver's Frontal Air Bag Does Not Deploy In An Accident
For right hand drive vehicles: the clockspring assembly that powers the driver's frontal air bag may become contaminated with dust and result in the failure of the driver's frontal air bag circuit. This would prevent deployment as commanded in an accident. Dealers will replace the clockspring, wheel back cover and column shroud free of charge to resolve the concern.
The heated outside rear view mirrors may develop corrosion in the wiring connectors that supply power to them. This can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will modify these wire connectors to provide a separate power feed free of charge to resolve this concern.
The power steering system and automatic transmission each have associated fluid lines. 2012 & 2013 Wrangler models equipped with both of these options are being recalled because a power steering fluid line can rub on one of the transmission oil cooler lines and wear a hole in the transmission line, causing a leak. Loss of transmission fluid can result in failure of the transmission to operate, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering return tube assembly to correct this concern.
