2023 Wrangler Unlimited Reliability

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.
