Jeep salesman said MT Wranglers are far more reliable - true?

Sounds like BS, but the two stick shifts look AWESOME

Well the rest of the car would be the same, but the manual trans is definitely more stout than the auto. Chrysler has always had crappy automatics.

Well putting in a manual transmission into a all around unreliable vehicle does not make it more reliable. It makes it have a reliable manual transmission.

What was that saying? "If you put lipstick on a pig it's still a pig"

Jeep JK's are amazing off road vehicles.Front and rear solid axle and lockers is what makes them superior, lifting them is a breeze to fit 35's. The motor and tranny are good just not as good as Toyota. Also on road it takes little getting used to the noise and handling.Those who can DIY the maintenance can make them last.

I understand what you're saying but I don't think it's nearly that bad.

I think they're decently reliable vehicles but Chrysler's transmissions have always been a weak point and almost ALWAYS fail before the engine, so I would agree that a manual transmission Jeep is more reliable than an auto Jeep

rookie response - probably off topic a bit?

I just sold my audi wagon and planned to buy a Jeep..........my thinking was having a convertible SUV in south west florida would be more fun that the audi wagon, and I could take to dog .
Rubicon looked cool so I set out to find one that I could test drive. that took over a week, there are none available.
Finally got a call from a dealer they had a new 21 - left over......so I went to test drive it. It was set up with 35's ----- and it was the v6.
I get it - fun to drive, harsh, lots of offroad capability --- but $64,000??? No tailer hitch---and they load dealer cheese on it like MKT adjustment , and some fake wax?

Yes it would be fun, but I plan to order a pro and save 8k

They had two 392 rubicons on the floor ----$100,000 - (MSRP $78), I asked if they would sell at MSRP and the sales guy laughed and said that you can't even test drive them unless you pay take delivery. I love florida.
