    Glad to see this. I just read about it on Facebook. I had the same issue and the dealer wanted to charge me a bunch of money for the oil cooler to be replaced. After getting pissed off I called jeep directly and it got replaced. There's a bunch of complaints previously to the lawsuit about this issue on the DOT page. I made a complaint too. Some jeeps have caught fire and I was told I was lucky mine didn't by 2 different places.

    Wrangler Engine Defect: Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Jeep & FCA

    I have a 2014, just went through the hassle of dealing with the oil cooler crack around 39K. I also have the issue with heating and the video that popped up on youtube ... bingo - have my attention. I have yet to take it in for the inadequate heating.

    Forgive my layman's take, appears improper cleaning of the motor during mfg - leaving debris which causes sludge to impact the radiator/heater/cooling system.

    Forums helped me lock down a dealer on the oil cooler crack ... what is everyone seeing in their jeeps?

    Not enough de-frost or regular heat to keep the front windshield free of ice. Have not taken in since its summer, but the dealership believes its the heater core. The two winter storms were not even the worst that SD has to offer. Blades skip and ice building from the bottom corners on up. Some regrettable feeling wells up ... sell it, because this can't happen if caught in a real good blizzard etc on the interstate. When I crossed this lawsuit, wow...sounds like a spot on description with the heating.

    What bugs me is I missed this while researching before purchase to begin with ... all these model years, mechanics, and hard core jeep folks -- uproar? Brown Slime

    Your punctuation and grammar is that of a 6th grader. Finish your thoughts completely before starting a new sentence. I really hope you have a good lawyer for this lawsuit because the judge will laugh at you if you try and represent yourself.

    Everyone talks about class action lawsuits. When do you or ever hear that the individuals whom been effected actually received enough compensation in an appropriate time frame? The lawyers will keep on bargaining until you left with nothing. By that time it would be 2131 and you will not even care what happened to you such a long time ago. If every jk had this problem then that is an issue but the odds are against. Usually it can be drilled down to an individual mechanic accidentally missing something. Don't get me wrong I would be p.o. too. Focus on fixing the problem instead of doing a witch hunt.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
