Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 3.6L V6 Mpi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,780 miles

A ticking noise - just a ticking noise, they said, don't worry about it. It seemed to get louder so I did worry about it. I read up on it in the jeep forums and saw that is was likely a lifter. The mechanics traced it to the right front and ended up replacing camshafts, lifters, rockers and when the right side was no longer noisy, they heard ticking in the left side too. You guessed it - they replaced the same on left side. It cost $2846!! I had serviced regularly and consistently with synthetic oil. I've owned jeeps my whole life (and I am 68). I expected this vehicle to be dependable. If I had known I would have to spend nearly $3000 on what is obviously a manufacturer defect, I could have spent that much on my previous vehicle and not bothered spending $30,000 on an undependable jeep!
