One issue I've always had with forums in general...you always hear the bad over the good.
No one starts a thread with, "Look at my engine that doesn't tick!!"

Furthermore, there is a known fix, and it's not a difficult one.
A competent mechanic can replace one of these heads in less than 4 hours.

Furtherfurthermore, every vehicle that has the possibility of a bad head has a 5yr, 100k mile warranty on said part.

If it's going to be a problem, it'll sure as hell be one long before you're out of warranty.
I have a 2012 Sport, and that's my opinion as well. I understand though that if the OP lives overseas, that's another matter entirely.

The OP? He's fine and in CO, bought his Jeep and near as I would think is just fine with it and long ago got his questions answered about the manual tranny (think he got the slushbox, though). We've just been yammering on for the past 2 pages on inconsequential BS totally off topic.

It's been 2 months; how about an update, and how do you feel about the auto trans?

I just spent all day in the woods with my stock 95 YJ Wrangler with the I4/5speed w/ ls rear. What a capable little rig. Nothing fancy, but really tractors around.

I just traded my old 1999 Cherokee on a 2013 Unlimited 4 door auto. I am a big fan of manual transmissions, but this auto is nice. Very happy with my decision.

In trying to get anything resembling reasonable mileage out of my '13 JKU Rubicon I am short shifting the shit out of it. Though I prefer a manual, I have to admit considering the Rubicon gearing the auto would be nice for daily driving. I'm in third gear by 20 mph, and fifth gear by 35. That's a hell of a lot of shifting in city traffic! I'd love a transfer case with a third overdrive range.

I picked this one up last night.

Not yet sure how I'm going to bond with it. I traded my trusty XJ of the past 12 years. I already miss it.

I suppose it will grow on me

Mine has arrived in port. I completed the customs documents yesterday. I might be able to see it Sunday, and take receipt Monday. We'll see. 2013 Unlimited Sahara Auto.

I miss my former 2 door JK's, TJ's, and YJ. But I have to admit this has helped me find comfort in my loss:

Ermagerd! Gawjus!

If it doesn't grow on you, send it my way...I'll pay for the shipping!

What do you guys think of the new wheels? When I first saw them I thought they were hideous. Now, they are starting to grow on me...

BTW, 21mpg on this tank of fuel. 6 speeds RULE!

I've had it less than 24 hours so maybe some of you who have actually read the owners manual can tell me: what exactly does the ECO light mean? At first I thought it was in some kind of economy mode but when I pulled away from a stoplight I noticed it went off.
