As most JK owners know,
the new Wrangler came from the factory with some issues. Reading through
various websites and boards all over the world, those vehicles have similar
challenges everywhere. Not surprisingly, Jeep came back with a recall
in the USA and Australia and some in Europe.

I heard of a lot of broken windshields before. Now it was my turn.
the truck sat on a parking lot. I doubt it was a rock or sudden heat change.
REAR WINDOW HEATING:
The wire for the heating of the rear window ripped off. Since it was
just a couple of weeks after the warranty ran out I hope for Chrysler
to still fix it for free.
WET HEAD LIGHT LENSES:
The inside of the lenses of the head lights show condensate. The European
Jeeps have lights made by Hella.
No recall in Germany (yet).
LEAKING HARD TOP:
The top was leaking badly along the windshield frame on the pillars but
also in the middle. The truck was at the dealer's twice without any improvements.
Here's what I found on the internet:
USA recall : #23-016-07
Date: May 24, 2007
Modular Hard Top Freedom Panel leaks at windshield header seal. The
adhesive degrades over time and looses its function.
The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) involves replacement of windshield
header seal to eliminate Freedom Panel water leaks.
USA recall : #23-001-07
Date: January 6, 2007
Modular Hard Top Freedom Panel leaks water center front, center rear,
A-pillar corners or B-pillar corners
The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) involves replacement of foam and/or
butyl tape(s) and/or weatherstrips to eliminate Freedom Panel water leaks.
