    Lemon laws vary by state. Here in Indiana, you must report the defect to the manufacturer dealer before the vehicle reaches 18000 miles. You must then give the dealer 4 attempts at repairing the problem. Once reported, the vehicle can go beyond 18000 miles, and still be covered. DOCUMENT EVERYTHING. If you prevail, in establishing your vehicle is a "lemon", the dealer must either buy it back, or give you a similar/non deficient vehicle.
    I've heard many dealers get VERY difficult to deal with after about the third attempt and try to blame the consumer for abusing or mis-using their vehicle.
    In most cases, a lawyer is necessary. In Indiana, if you win, the dealer/manufacturer, is required to pay legal fees.

    Also, you don't have to be the first owner. The vehicle still must be less than 18000 miles, when first reported.

    Thank you! This is great info! I live in Maryland so Iíll check our specific laws. Hopefully it does not come to a legal battle. My hope is that since this has been an ongoing issue that dealerships should have a fix figured out by now 🤞

    Yeah. Clearly they know thereís an issue. Itís not like this steering box is used on non-wranglers too.

    Been meaning to post a follow up to this for a while now and say that I've been able to get our death wobble back under control. Turns out we had a bad track bar bushing at the frame mount. Talked to EVO about it and I guess there was an early batch of track bars that had the bushings pressed in with too much force and that caused the issue. Anyway, gonna use the opportunity to test out the all new Synergy track bar with their dual durometer bushings.

    Me too. Just like always, the most common cause of DW is a loose or worn out track bar bushing. You could really see big movement on ours. Replacing the track bar with a known good one fixed our DW immediately. Looking forward to seeing how the Synergy one does.

    Almost always is. Drove our JL down to SEMA and back and have been driving it around town in cold temps and with zero death wobble.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
