The NHTSA did not do a comprehensive 2023 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited review. The Wrangler did not partake in the side crash test. It received four out of five stars in the frontal crash and three out of five in the rollover test.
In the IIHS test, the Wrangler has a few bad remarks against its name. The standard headlights received a poor rating, while the optional LED package received a marginal rating. It also received marginal ratings in the side and small overlap front crash tests. The rest of the categories were marked as good.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
All models are equipped with four airbags (dual front and front side), ABS, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, hill start assist, and tire pressure monitoring.
The Wrangler is severely lacking when it comes to driver assistance features. You have to pay extra for blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, LED taillights, and ParkSense rear park assist. The option of adding these features is not available on the base Sport model.

The Wrangler does not have the best reputation when it comes to reliability. It has suffered multiple recalls since it was introduced a few years ago, and customers lodged in excess of 300 official complaints with the NHTSA. The older it gets, the more kinks are ironed out.
In 2022, only eight official complaints were lodged against the Wrangler, and it was only recalled once for inoperative side marker lights.
Jeep really upped its game when it comes to customer satisfaction. In 2019, Wrangler owners gave the car 74 out of 100 in the J.D. Power Ownership Survey. By 2022, that rating had gone up to 80%.
The 2022 Wrangler Unlimited gets a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. A three-year/36,000-mile complimentary scheduled maintenance plan is included in the price.
Jeep struggled with the current generation Wrangler at first, but after a few years in production, the problems appear to have been ironed out.
