Remember when the Jeep Wrangler had a three-speed automatic? That wasn't that long ago – as recent as the 2007 redesign – but Chrysler is keen to leave those days behind on the dusty trail.

Chrysler owners are hopping mad after experiencing a series of electrical gremlins in some of the company's vehicles.
