I've owned my 2010 Rubicon Unlimited since new. I have almost 50k miles and it doesn't use a drop of oil.
It's been more reliable than my wife's Explorer.
The problem with the Wrangler is the average age of the owner. They are commonly used and abused by clueless first time vehicle owners.
Show me a high school kid who doesn't dream about owning one...
