problem #1

Mar 192003

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 6,000 miles
In 4-low trying to get out of snow in a 2002 Jeep Wrangler, the axle broke for no apparent reason. This is not being covered by warranty since I was told it happened when spinning tires hit pavement, although I never did get to pavement.
