Wrangler 4WD

  • Manual transmission
  • 16,500 miles
At 65 mph on I-95 in Maryland, the clutch and bearings burned out. All power to power brakes and steering were lost immediately making an emergency stop and steering was very difficult. Recent dealer maintenance failed to detect any excess ive wear or potential for failure.
