My Jeeps window regulators keep breaking. I have installed four now and another just broke. I have replaced each window now at least once. The plastic nylon clips break and the cable winds inside the housing. Chrysler has not recalled the regulators. There is no recourse except to pay another $90 off the Internet and buy another one. I dont know how they can get by with this. There is enough complaints filed. What is your organization doing to help?
I bought a 2004 Jeep Liberty (used) with 30,000 miles on it. The first year, I had to replace the transfer case. Next came the PCM computer, not counting the endless times I had to replace so many sensors. I live in the city where these jeeps are built. I will never buy another Chrysler product.
I purchased this 2007 Jeep Commander when it was 2 years old. It still had a factory warranty. It has been nothing but a piece of garbage. This is by far the worst vehicle that I have ever owned, or that anyone I know has ever owned. Nothing but a pile of troubles. Windows never worked right, sometimes they went up, and sometimes they get stuck (elect). Water leaks through the sunroof tubes because of poor design. They need to be cleaned out twice a year or my car will be soaking wet and leaking from the handles and down through the doors to the floor. When heater turns on, makes loud squealing sounds, and to turn heat off you have to hit the ac switch. Seats also had bad wiring and would not adjust back and forth.I do regular maintenance on my car every three months, and my vehicle is garage kept. Ever since I had this Jeep, it stalls, wont start on first crank intermittently, shuts off while driving, and windshield wipers work when they decide to go on for no apparent reason. When I take it for service, no one sees anything wrong with it. No codes, no problems when test driving. Everytime I get this Commander out of the garage, two months later it is being towed in for another problem. In the last 15 months, I have had to replace the oil pan (really??? Rusted completely through), water pump, fuel pump, leaking transmission lines (poor design, rubbing together), crank sensor, and NOW to my amazement the ECM.Really??? I want to puke. Got to fix it, so that I can get rid of it. Because I NEVER want to look at another Jeep/Chrysler product again. I really hate the fact that someone else has to get this money trap junk. Because that is exactly what it is!!! When this Jeep hit 100,000 miles, which was 15 months ago, it has proved to be moneymaker for Jeep parts and labor, and a real unreliable vehicle for the owner. Lets not forget all the electrical and design problems it has had from the start. I am still at a shock about the computer system going bad. Yeah 1400.00, that never should have happened!!! I cannot wait to get it fixed and get it out of my name.
I bought a Renegade 2015 and allegedly sold me a warranty against MECHANICAL MISTAKES; I signed a paper that says INSURANCE OF MECHANICAL FAILURES; It turned out to be a guayazos insurance and wash the seats if they are stained. The collection of the policy was $895.00 and the insurance has an invoice of $240.00 which I have a copy (MAPFRE IS THE INSURER AND THE INSURANCE IS CALLED AUTOGUARD). I can say that the Renegade Jeep is a crap is only aesthetic and the warranty is very short combined with the dealer who cheated me, not even gave me carpets or accessories any further, they promised change of oil for 2 years or 8 changes of oil but As the Renegade uses synthetic oil they only honored me only 4. I have already invested around $1000.00 and right now I am without a car until possibly on Monday the vehicle be repair.
My 2006 Jeep Liberty was rode off when the driver lost control and it went off the road and into a ditch and hit a brick barrier. The air bags did not deploy, as the impact was enough that the vehicle was unrepairable. I am disappointed knowing that there was a safety issue in that the air bags that are equipped to save lives did not deploy even though the vehicle hit front on. No one was hurt badly as a result but knowing that the one thing that we ensure when we buy our vehicles, that being safety was at risk, is certainly disappointing and could have been fatal.
The problem began initially in 4/2010 when the vehicle had 53,165 miles on it and the engine would idle roughly, the ESP/BAS indicator would come on, the check engine light would come on, and the traction assist indicator would all come on at the same time. As soon as all the indicators would light, the car would handle poorly, not shift properly, and at times simply stall out on the highway. I brought the car to my local Jeep dealership and upon inspection, they found that the intake manifold had melted and come apart; thus, it needed to be replaced at a cost of $485, which was fine considering the car overall had not given me many major problems. So, I proceeded to have the work done. A couple of weeks ago, the same problems began happening again (the engine would idle roughly, the ESP/BAS indicator would come on, the check engine light would come on, and the traction assist indicator would all come on at the same time), so I brought the car back to the same dealership. Upon inspection, they found that once again, the intake manifold had melted and come apart, thus it needed to be replaced at a cost this time of $685. Mind you, the car now has 96,057 miles. My main concern is that the intake manifold lasted only 42,901 miles and had to be replaced once again. I voiced my concerns to my service advisor and he stated that the first time the upper manifold had gone bad and that this time the lower manifold had gone bad. That may very well be the case but if you look at the invoices, the part numbers are exactly the same (53032774AA). I understand that the dealership can only do so much, so I am now appealing to you as it seems that the intake manifold for my 2006 Jeep Commander has a factory defect as it literally melts and begins to come apart especially with the extremely hot weather in South Florida every 40,000 miles or so.I wrote a letter to Chrysler and received an email asking me to call their customer assistance center. I called and was basically told that there was nothing they could do. I asked to speak to a manager and Daniel refused to let me do so saying that he had the final decision on my claim. Needless to say, I am getting rid of this crappy car and I will never spend my money on a Jeep again as they do not stand behind their product as some of their foreign competitors do.
I would like to inform you about problems with my 2010 jeep. It only has 40000 mi. on it. First of all, I purchased the extended warranty with $100 deductible. Nov. 2012 was the first prob. - a recall for a guard that could collect debris and catch fire. Chrysler fixed that prob. - I applaud them for that. The next prob. was when driving down the road, the dash lights and ABS ESP skid control lights came on also lost cruise control. The extended warranty fixed that with $100 deductible. That was fine. In March 2013, it was the same thing - dash lights acted up the same as it did in November but they say it is not the same thing. This time, they say it is corded wires that could cause fire. Okay, this may be true although how it is not related to the module that caused the same lights to light up and have same exact affect as before, I do not understand. This cost me another $100. We have been with Chrysler products since 1969 but yet to buy one without problems. I am getting fed up! I guess the joke is on me for staying loyal and true so long with Chrysler. My wife worked for Chrysler for 33 yrs and Chrysler provided us with a living so I felt it only fair to buy their products. Its not so much now that we are on a fixed income. Whatever the problems which I dont understand - same light, same exact problem but they say it is not the same. If more problems happen, I will just paint lemon on the jeep and drive it around like that. Anyone that stops and asks questions, I will explain the service that I got. Thanks for listening.
The stalling turned out to be intended functionality. It is a feature of the economy mode designed to conserve fuel. This feature can be turned off, but I feel that it would be better as a selectable option and not default.The acceleration performance was improved via a transmission controller software update.
Bought a new 2014 Jeep Cherokee, it was leaking oil and shutting off on the highway. They replaced the whole engine after 24,000 miles, now at 47,000 miles it needs a second engine. Can you imagine to replace 2 engines before it hits 50,000 miles. A complete disaster and failure for the so called JEEP.
My 2005 Jeep Liberty has faulty window regulators (these are used to operate the electric windows). This is a problem with all Jeep Liberty’s – there are thousands of complaints.It costs 400 to 500 dollars to fix it and the part continues to break over and over. Jeep refuses to issue a recall. I just had one replaced 21 months ago and it has broken again. The window just falls into the door without warning. It is very dangerous.
Jeep Grand Cherokee 2008 Paint Peeling - The paint has hundreds of tiny cracks. The cracks turn into blisters and break then rust. The car is in great condition with 65k miles. This is a manufacturer defect. I will add pictures soon.
2008 JEEP Liberty 2x4 Sport - I was driving on I-75 listening to my stereo to drown out the Wind noise from my SKY SLIDER WHEN THE ROOF POPPED and SLAMMED OPEN. Something flew out, what sounded like on of the brace bars, it was dark. I was So thankful no one was behind me. I Took it to Brandon Chrysler Dodge & JEEP. Unfortunately they dont seem to be able to FIX ANYTHING without Screwing more thing up...I now have an improperly installed Slider Top with GREASE and Water Stains to match the carpet they botched. ON their first attempt to fix the fact that the top would not close completely. Funny how they cannot seem to find any problems until after a major issue happens. I Love my Jeep and Slider top but they are noisy and unpredictably dangerous.
2017 Jeep Renegade - Received a tiny chip in windshield, parked car in garage. Was going to take to repair shop for seal injection and found a 6 inch crack extending from small chip. AND replacement windshield is back ordered for two months AND cheapest one is $800. WOW! Maybe buying a Jeep was a mistake.
I bought my 2016 Jeep Renegade new. I have had it since March of 2016. I am VERY dissatisfied with it and the Jeep experience. I started having problems with it around July of last year and it has literally been in and out of the shop since. I lose gas power while driving, it just does not go. Jeeps reasoning behind no gas is the transmission is trying to find a gear. This is NOT acceptable. A car should go no matter what when you push the gas pedal down. I have had a few close calls because my car chooses when it wants to go. I have also been told turn your traction control off and this should fix the problem. I am not sure why this should fix my problem, my car should go when I push the gas down. I asked why I have to manually put my car in first gear, their response is First gear is for four wheel drive. Well, there is your problem. Thats why it cant find a gear when I am rolling forward, or turning and trying to go. Maybe it needs first gear. This is the WORST car I have EVER driven. I love how the excuses of why it drives so horribly just flow like a river. I should feel safe when I drive my car, and I dont because I dont know when it is going to happen. The problem has happened to my husband and my son.
I pick up my new Jeep with the nav sys and it is incomplete. Took back to the dealer which sold to me and was told after a long period that was the nav sys. I would have to live with it. After 11 Jeep Grands this is the last one. Paid a lot of money for the nav system to get screwed on it. I am stuck with a system that is useless to me!!!
I leased a 2017 Jeep Renegade. Since August 2017 this vehicle has failed to start every time and has been in and out of the shop for more than 40 cumulative days. I am very disappointed in the vehicle and at this point accepted the fact that the vehicle is unreliable. The vehicle has had numerous parts replaced by the dealer (eg. harness, fuel injectors, brake switch, etc). I want other people to know what experience I have had as this has not been a fun ride.
I bought a lemon! I am so disappointed in Jeep. I dont know where to start. This SUV is costing me more than a mortgage payment. I take very good care of this car, and in return, it kills me! I have 49,000 miles on this 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the air conditioning went out in 2009. The cooling pump went out last month, and now, the ignition is gone! I need a phone number to someone who can help me. Im dumping this heap of crap and going back to Honda. I saved forever to get the car of my dreams. Now, its nothing but a nightmare! Anyone have 1,220 bucks to pay for the latest repair? Youre killing me! Please, give me a number! This car was bought at Global Auto Mall in North, Plainfield, NJ.
I have not had an accident and nobody has hit me. I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty and the airbag light has come on for the drivers side. This is a safety factor of the vehicle. And I would like to know why it is not a recall. Please email me and let me know. I dont think it is fair to make me pay for this to be repaired. Thank you.Jane **
Brand new 2014 jeep wrangler Rubicon started malfunction at 5000 miles. Lights shorting out, tpms fully malfunctioning and doesnt recognize where any of my tires are even after 3 new modules replaced. My radio now doesnt work as it goes nuts with the buttons flashing etc. when car is on and the worst part is my Jeep turning on by itself in my driveway middle of night without the keys!!! They have had me into dealership for 7 months now. 12 plus visits, over 5 rental cars and to this day I have no answers. The resolution department does nothing but make you run in circles and has not offered to help in any way. I spent over $50,000 on this top of line Jeep to get no accountability from the manufacturer on these problems. When their own dealership told me to hire a lawyer AND the customer service dept of Jeep says the same thing after looking over my STAR report.... well looks like Im getting a lawyer. Lucky I live in California where they have to give me every penny back, my down payment and pay for my lawyer. I used to love my Jeep. Now I just have a bad taste in my mouth from this company.
DO NOT BUY JEEP! Please look into other credible vehicle brands. Please believe ALL the reviews about their terrible service! First of all, let me first say initially my car is fairly new. It is still under warranty, and it started stalling. Well I find out via mail it’s a recall on the electric system that starts the issue ok... Well my car isn’t driving properly. Can you all pick it up? Well let us get back with you.. Yes we can. My car gets to the dealership. They won’t service my car unless I sign some paperwork. Understandable. Can you do e-docusign? No. Can you pick me up? No. Can you bring the papers to my home? No. I had to hire an Uber to jeep and back $40. When will my car be fixed? We don’t know. Dealership calls back.. Can’t fix your car ma’am. We are backed up 4 days. Can you provide a loaner car? No. Why? Corporate says it must be a service that requires at least 48 hours. Your service only takes 20 minutes. I spent almost a wk getting a Uber back and forth to work $100. A week after my car is fixed, car stalls out again on a major highway. I’m almost killed! At this point I’m ANGRY. Same thing. No loaner car, I can’t get to the dealership to sign off, I spent OVER $200 on appointment cancellations, Uber rides, and food delivery services! No rentals are available in my area. We gave you a case manager. She’s not available until Monday morning. You will have to wait... Guess who will be doing Uber again on Monday morning?? DO NOT buy Jeep. The customer service is terrible. I get better service buying a $3 chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-A than I have buying a 32,000 vehicle!! I’m filing a suit, giving bad reviews until the day I die! I’m that angry over these selfish, greedy, unreliable, jerks!
I really enjoy driving the 2017 Jeep Patriot. Its very comfortable, gets good gas mileage, and it handles well in snow. I dont know if I could drive anything but a Jeep now.
I purchased a 2019 brand new Jeep Compass in October 2019. The car radio which has all my controls on it went out on 1/14/2020. They are unable to fix it until the second week in February. Jeeps are junk and the service turn around sucks. I would never buy another Jeep again. If you are wondering if Jeep is the way to go I will gladly remind you, they are terrible on gas as well. DO NOT GET A JEEP!!
From the moment I purchased this vehicle I have had nothing but problems, constantly. I bought it new off the lot in 2011 and paid an extra $5k for the warranty. Every few months I have to take it to the dealer for repairs: Twice for exhaust leaks caused by broken exhaust bolts, fuel pump, radiator, water pump, rack and pinion, drive shaft, twice for inside fan blower, left motor mount twice, right motor mount, 8! times and counting for a vibration that cannot be determined, even after an engineer from Chrysler flew out, 2 a/c condensers, spark plug coil, exhaust manifold, rear light cover melted from poor design, air conditioning lines, play in the transmission, oil pan replaced... I mean the list goes on. The kicker is that I have never once even taken this vehicle off road. The bottom is spotless!After endless hours on the phone constantly I have yet to receive anyone at Jeep who wants to resolve the issue. The offered me a CDI number for employee pricing, when I went into the dealership to explore the sales guy laughed at me and told me he has way better deals. I would discourage anyone from buying a Jeep ever. All my friends, family, and coworkers have a running joke about me and my Jeep. So sad, especially when Chrysler was bailed out billions of our tax payer money! In addition, I am a disabled service connected veteran of the US Air Force. And this is how I am treated by a company that touts their support of vets! Beyond disappointed.
Car Continues to have problems after multiple repairs. Jeep has recall P41 (from Sept 3, 2014) that parts have not been made available for. 2006 Jeep Commander Issues: Sept 2013 -- Stalled, Shut Down, No Start. Piston Replaced Est. Cost ($1000) -- Repaired at Independent Auto Repair. Car stalled/shut down while driving approximately 25mph. Car restarted after about 5 tries and was driven “home”. No restart. Vehicle was towed to mechanic. Piston was replaced. Car never worked properly since. Jeep would pulsate when slowing down or stopped. Intermittent and random hesitation and acceleration. April 2014 -- Stalled, Shut Down, No Start -- Est. Cost $500 -- Repaired by Independent Mechanic. Starter Replaced/New Battery (approx. mileage 86,000).(My 66 yr old mother driving alone.) Car stalled while driving at approximately 25mph. After about 10 minutes and several attempts car restarted for a short distance (about 1 mile) and stalled again while driving. Car was towed “home”. Independent mechanic replaced battery and solenoid/starter. June 2014 -- No Start, “Transmission over Temp”-- Est. Cost $800 -- Repaired by Independent Mechanic. Jeep would start for very short period, over-heat and shut down. Would restart after cooling. “Transmission over Temp” light on dash. Hoses and water pump replaced. Blower motor replaced (a/c & heat hadnt worked in over a year). Replacing blower motor did allow a/c & heat to work BUT only on high.July 2014 -- Stalled, Shut Down, No Start (Towed In) Est. Cost $600 Approx. Mileage 92,000 - To Dealership. Dealership can’t find any problems. Had Tune-Up. Replaced spark plugs, etc. Vehicle was hesitating while driving. Engine light on. Dash lights would come on and shut completely off while driving. After car was shut off it wouldnt restart. Windows wouldnt work or if they finally engaged would go up and down sporadically. Car horn came on by itself and wouldnt shut off until relay was taken out. Windshield wipers went haywire. Jeep was TOWED to dealership because it wouldnt start… Therefore, it wouldnt run, but the dealership couldnt find anything wrong with it. Tune-up was done and the Jeep, somehow, ran.Sept 2014 -- Stalled, Shut Down, No Start (Towed In) Est Cost $600 Approx. Mileage 94,000 - To Dealership. Starter Replaced, New Battery. Car started hesitating while driving. Dash lights would all come on and then all shut off. When coming to a stop or slowing down car would lose power. At stops, would have to keep foot on gas to keep car from stalling. While coming to an intersection to make a left turn on a green turn arrow car wouldn’t engage to excel. My 7 year old daughter was in the car. I feared we were going to stall in the middle of the intersection of a busy street. All the dash lights came on and shut off repeatedly as we coasted around the turn. Car re-engaged and we pulled into a parking lot. Shut the car off. Went into Walmart. When we came out car started. Engine light on. Being only 1 mile from home we drove home. The next morning car wouldnt start. Got a new battery. Car still wouldnt start. Had it towed to dealership. Dealership replaced solenoid/starter.Sept 2014 -- Hesitates, Lights on dash on and off, Engine light on, problems starting. Drove to Dealership. Dealership can’t find any problems. Again, dashboard lights came and all shut off. Jeep is/was hesitating while driving and not engaging/changing gears while driving. Also, periodically accelerates randomly while driving. Dealership suggests replacing control module ($1300) and having wiring harness diagnosed ($600 for diagnosis not to fix it -- est. cost to replace wiring harness $1500 to $3000). But, they do NOT know what is wrong with the Jeep.Oct. 2014 -- Hesitates, Random Acceleration, Dash lights all on to all off. -- No Fix. Vehicle continues to have problems. As I cannot afford to keep replacing parts or diagnosing issues I drive it as it. I have 3 children that I will not drive in the Jeep any further away from home than a mile or 2… and will only drive with the children in the car on side streets or back roads. Therefore, my children do not go anywhere except the local park, to school, or to a friend’s house that lives nearby. They do not go to any store with me that is farther than 1 mile away, or that main roads have to be taken to get to it. Not included in the costs above are the car rental fees I have had to pay each time the car was under repair.Other misc. problems: Broken Door Handle, Sun Roof doesnt close properly, Poor Paint (Thin - scratches and rust), rough drive, a/c & heating only work on high. Chrysler issued recall P41 (Faulty Ignition) on Sept. 3 2014 but parts are not made to fix the problem YET. 2 Months from issued recall we are still waiting for Chrysler to make and distribute parts. Chrysler issued recall on Sept 21 (maybe 23) for recall of TIPM but only for SOME of the vehicles affected. 11/21/2014 Jeep lost power at 35mph. Re-engaged. 11/25/2014 Jeep lost power at 25mph. Re-engaged. 11/26/2014 Jeep lost power at 35mph. Re-engaged. Called Chrysler and was told there is nothing they can do about recall parts as the parts are not ready. There is no sense continuing to take the vehicle to be serviced as the problem does not seem to be able to be diagnosed properly. It does not seem to be able to be fixed.
I bought my 2007 Jeep Patriot brand new. About a year later, my jeep stalled at a light. It was raining and started right away so I figured maybe some water had gotten into a hose or the engine. It didnt stall after that for another year. Since then, it stalls every time it rains! I am so fed up with Jeep not recalling their vehicles for known issues. It seems like someone has to die and a lawsuit has to be filed before they do anything to fix their problems. I am so tired of having to invest money in this car.At around 60, 000 miles, I had to replace both ball joints. Even with an alignment my car still vibrates at high speeds. The transmission struggles when accelerating. Ive had to replace all my rotors! My driver side window squeals as it is rolled up. There was a mysterious leak thru my trunk that resulted in water being accumulated where the spare tire is. Took it the dealership and they replaced the rubber gasket but the damage was already done. I service my SUV regularly so I wouldnt expect so many problems. I use fuel injection additives to make sure the fuel system is clean. I change my spark plugs on time. I never had this much problems with my 2000 Galant.
My husband and I purchased our Dream vehicle in 2009 and have had nothing but bad and dangerous experiences with the vehicle. It all started while driving on a very congested highway when the Jeep went over an uneven patch of road. It began to buck and lose control. We were shaken and scared, as my husband veered the vehicle to the right side of the highway. We made an appointment with our local dealer, and they found nothing wrong with the Jeep. This happened a second time, and again, we took it to the dealer where this time, the tie rod was replaced and we were given four new tires and an extended warranty for our troubles. Months later, while driving yet again on the highway, the vehicle began to do the same thing--shake and convulse, and the brakes would not work properly. We have contacted Chrysler Corporation and have spoken to several employees who want us to continue taking the Jeep in for service, except one gentleman who basically told me to just deal with it! We believe Chrysler Corporation is very much aware of the problems with these vehicles and that they are just playing it off and ignoring the potential danger. We do not feel comfortable in trading this vehicle in and having someone else come after us and purchase this extremely dangerous vehicle. Is Chrysler Corp. waiting for us to become a statistic and our children having to file suit against them for our deaths? It is a shame that such a multi-million-dollar company does not take their customer complaints seriously and stand behind their products. But I guess, once the vehicles are sold, we are all on our own. We will continue to fight for what we feel is right morally, legally, and human!
2007 Jeep Patriot - The engine will not go over 2,000 rpm. Ive tried everything. This vehicle sucks!
Jeep has always been a reliable brand and I love my Renegade. The interior is super roomy and very comfortable. This model also includes a fair amount of cargo space. The only features missing from this particular model are no hatchback and its lack of a cargo hitch. Itd be quite useful to be able to haul a small trailer if need be, as we have motorcycles that sometimes need hauled. But other than that, the safety features are great. As a parent, it makes me much more confident knowing my daughter is the safest she can be. The Jeep Renegade drives very smooth and its a comfort to know that when the weather turns snowy, that 4-wheel drive can save you.
The vehicle (2014 Jeep Latitude) is not worth the money. I drove it off the lot and immediately had issues with the transmission shifting hard. Took it back. They said it was because it was new. 16,000 miles later had to put a new transmission in. Today took it in because its still shifting hard and was told All the motor mounts are bad and need replacing. We are still working on trying to do the updates to the computer for the transmission. We will let you know. Never again will I buy a Jeep!! Nothing but issues with the transmission and other stuff. Oh yea I have taken it in many times on the AC not working. You will be driving and all of a sudden it will start heating. They still havent fixed that issue. Nothing but junk and oh yea the power train doesnt cover the motor mounts. Thats 1300.00 that I have to pay outta pocket. This should be on their dime for all the trouble I have had with this piece of crap!!! Dont buy one. You will regret it in the long run!!
While driving on vacation, on the 2nd day, my 2008 Jeep at 41,138 gave out on the transmission. I had to stop in MS State for repairs costing $3,699.13+135.60 car rental. Upon returning home, I called Chrysler who is willing to pay only $1,500 with no explanation or were concerned as to why the Jeep did what it did. I have been at this since August 14. Today, I am told the check for $1,500 is on the way but I have asked them to reopen the case as I am still not satisfied nor was I given any reasons except that the Jeep loaner has any warranties. It seems the Jeep had three years, 36,000 and no more. My question was whatever happened to power train warranty of 80,000/100,000?I find Chrysler staff incompetent to do their job in dealing with their customer and has no lack of concern over this early transmission issue with the Jeep. Mind you, they acknowledged it is an early problem but because they feel there is no warranty with the car, they were not going to further review why the transmission failed. They never called the dealership where it was repaired to this day. I have reported them to the TX AG and NHTSA/DOT and will continue to post this issue on any website that will alert any consumers on this automaker. Now that the case has been reopened, I will wait and see what the outcome will be the second time around. There was a day when I asked for the Chrysler corporations phone number. The operator gave me to their roadside assistant line.I am very angry and very frustrated at the way I have been treated. By the way, they not only asked me for the repair bill. They had the gall to ask me for my credit card statement to show that I really did pay for the repairs of $3,699.13. How do you like that for treatment by Chrysler Customer Care? I would like all Chrysler owners to review their warranty and those that are thinking of buying any Chrysler products, read the warranty book before buying their cars.
My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a piece of junk. It only has 70,000 miles. Over the last few years I have put all new brakes twice! All new tires, 2 radiators, complete computer panel that blew and almost killed my son and I. A new thermostat... etc! DO NOT BUY A Dodge! I drive 2 miles to work. Terrible car! Service charged me 900$ to replace the radiator.
I purchased a 2011 Jeep Patriot in August 2011. I like my Jeep, but the problem I am encountering with the CVT Transmission is frustrating and concerning. In less than a year of having my Jeep, I began to notice a whining noise and the RPM getting stuck as if the transmission was not shifting. When I took it into my dealer’s service department, they said they couldnt find anything wrong. The assistant service manager suggested it was the wind I was hearing. A couple of months later, the same issues were happening regularly, but now the transmission temperature warning light came on. I again took it to the dealership. This time, I was again told they checked it out, couldnt find anything wrong, and they said they couldnt diagnose it unless the light was on.The next time the issue occurred, I was traveling to visit my parents 45 minutes away. The temperature warning light came on about 40 minutes into the drive. Once I got to my parents house, I decided to take it to the Jeep Dealership there. Unfortunately, when I started the Jeep, the light was off, making the trip to the out of town dealership pointless. In the last two months, the same issues have occurred, but on two occasions, my Jeep went into LIM (limp in mode), which forcibly slowed the vehicle down and required me to pull over on the Interstate for the transmission to cool down. After the first time it went into LIM, I called Jeep Customer Service to see what suggestions they had. The customer service representative with Jeep was nice, advised they had never heard of this problem, and instructed me to follow up the dealership.Before making yet another appointment with the dealership, I decided to do some general research on CVT Transmission in Jeep. I was totally surprised to see consumer comments of the exact same issues, especially after the Jeep representative said Jeep hadnt heard of this problem. One of these reviews suggested recording the issue. Within a week, it happened again! This time I recorded the noise, the temperature warning light coming on, and having to pull over. I took the video to the dealership. This time, the same assistant manager said, Every Jeep with CVT Transmission has that issue.I asked about switching out the transmission. He advised there isnt a way to convert the transmission. He also said Jeep hasnt released a fix yet. So, my not even two year old Jeep, which is still under the manufacturer warranty, is defective with no fix for the issue. In the mean time, I cant drive my Jeep out of town and feel unsafe driving it. To top it all off, the CVT Transmission was a $1,000 upgrade! I feel like I have no options, but to retain an attorney and file a complaint under my state’s lemon law and the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act.
I have a 2006 jeep commander and I have a recall for the ignition. When I called the toll free number to find out how long is going to take to fix the problem because I have a baby on the way and I dont want to drive my unsafe car with a newborn, I was met with rude woman named Jillian with the ID number **. When asked what the time frame for the wait time would be for my car, she basically told me that she had a no information about it and said that I would have to wait for a letter and then refused to give me the contact information to anyone above her. I told her in a few months I would be having a baby, her response was dont drive your car. Chrysler has some great people answering the phone calls
Jeep does not takes care of their customer in all fairness. I purchase a 2016 Jeep Renegade Latitude back in November 2016 at Suresky in Goshen NY. In the beginning of 2018 I started getting an issue with my car. I had oil consumption issue. Engine light would come on and the car would feel like as if it’s going to shutdown. Every time I would take to get my oil change, the mechanic would tell me that I have barely have any oil. So I took it to where I purchase the car and explained to them that my issues are with my car. So they did their inspection and testing and at the end they told me that the oil consumption was normal. Mind you I had 45,995 miles and still under warranty. April 29 2019 my car started blowing white smoke out of my tailpipe. Was unable to drive the vehicle home. Following day I took it to the nearest Jeep dealer around my job Croton Auto Park, Croton on Hudson, NY. They did a diagnostic and found #3 cylinder misfires, all my spark plugs are full of oil, a piece of spark plug was found inside the engine and a piece of the piston was to found inside the engine. I called the Jeep FCA opened a case. One of the representatives that helped me open my case told me that my issue with my car was common. She has handled a few of the same issues. The service Manager at the Croton Auto Park also told me that these are very common with the model of my car. I was told that to fix the car it would cost $12,000.00 and the Jeep were only willing to pay $8000 and I have to come up with the other $4000 out of pocket. Now I am 67,000 miles (7000) over the warranty and was told that this is their last offer. I believe that I should not have to pay for any of this because if this was addressed when I brought it in the day that I was still covered under warranty and below the mileage I wouldn’t need to pay anything. This is a manufacture defect. A 2 1/2 year old car having this kind of issues is unheard of. I provided proof of maintenance records. I am a loyal customer with Jeep. I had a 2003 and 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2016 Jeep Wrangler and now 2018 Jeep Renegade Latitude. I have never had a bad experience with Jeep till now. This is the worst experience I ever had. I am going to continue to post all this in all social media until I am heard and acknowledge.
I have a 2006 Jeep Commander. Everything from leaking grab bars to the brake system is broken. The door handles busted out. The grab bars leak every time it rains or you wash the car. You can be driving and all the dash lights come on but it has died while driving on interstate 75 at 70mph. stalls at lights, stop signs, esp. bas lights come on. The smell from the wet carpet and floor when it leaks is unbearable. When questioned the dealer about mold, the response was no way this car is built to last and withstand the wet. Dealer had the vehicle from Sept 14 to Jan 7 and only replaced door handles at my cost. This car is a safety hazard and I am afraid to drive it. It only has 67k miles on it.
I ordered a Trackhawk when they became available and received it November 29th and was present when it rolled off the truck. It has been everything I expected. It is quick, reliable, very well constructed inside and out. My wife and I took it on a road trip from Kansas City to Seattle area and back and really enjoyed the way it performed and handled. Very easy to drive and use all of the options. It is sure footed in poor road conditions and easy to drive in traffic. This is the ultimate sleeper vehicle. I also own a 15 Viper which is also fun and more than capable of outperforming almost anything on the road and also well put together.
I love my 2018 Jeep Compass but I am having issues with the back up camera. I have had the camera replaced once. This didnt resolve the issue so the radio was replaced. It started having a black screen again. Finally the dealership was able to see this issue and they are ordering yet another radio Another issue I am having is the drivers side seat panel keeps popping out. No Im not morbidly obese. This has been fixed 4 times. I just picked my truck up the Friday after Thanksgiving and it is now back broken. Was told by the dealership these issues are known issues and that I am going to keep having them.
When driving for a while, coming off ramp and stopping to make turn, I lost power and heard popping noise, and a white blue smoke pours out the back. Then I get the power back. I took this to the Jeep dealer 2x and its been in there for 3 days now and they still cant find what is wrong. I also took it to a Goodyear place. They found after 2k miles of getting an oil change, I had no oil, yet I have no leak. My concern is when I lose power when I turn into traffic, the cars or trucks behind me - when the white smoke is in their face - dont know Im not going anywhere and they can cream me. I feel unsafe driving.
With less than 3,000 miles my trans (2018 Jeep Compass Limited 4x4) malfunctioned while on the expressway. I lost all power to the engine. Thankfully I was able to exit safely. Towed for service to the dealership. Valve body harness replaced and said it was good to go. Driving home from the dealership it wasnt shifting correctly and eventually had no gears at all and need to be towed back the next day. My car got a new transmission. The next problem was the front windows wouldnt roll down. Back for service, a corroded module inside the door was the problem. No explanation as to how or why this happened other than it must of been installed that way. Picked up car the next day and while driving home my HVAC would not switch modes, and the navigation system came up without prompting, returned within 10 minutes from pick up and back in for service. Its been in the repair shop 4x in less than a month and currently in for a week today with latest electrical issue. Thankfully my service department is backing me when I say this car needs to be taken back and Im currently working with my dealership to make this happen. I have zero confidence in its dependability and am afraid to drive it.
I just leased a 2012 Jeep Liberty. Jeep on their own website says that every radio system on the Jeep Liberty comes with Sirius XM radio and a 1-year subscription, as does the new car window sticker, and as did the salesman who leased me the vehicle. However, poking around all the channels on my new Sirius XM radio, I find that there are channels missing. Upon deeper research, I find that I actually have a Sirius Select subscription, not a Sirius XM subscription as promised. And upon further checking I find that I cannot just upgrade my subscription on my own to get Sirius XM channels because Sirius XM requires a “different radio than is offered with the Jeep Liberty!”If Jeep had said, Our Sirius XM (the manufacturer) radios come with a free 1-year Sirius Select subscription, that would be one thing, but they did not. I have been on the phone with Sirius XM, and many times with the Jeep dealer and with Jeep corporate. Today the Jeep sales manager called me and basically said, Sorry but we are not liable for that. The assigned Jeep case worker told me first that they would give me free oil changes. When I insisted they keep their word and give me Sirius XM radio as promised, she then came back and said they would cover half of the cost of the Sirius XM radio. If they arent responsible, why would they do that? When I tried to nail the case manager down about exactly how much that is and if that included the subscription, she said she didnt know. Obviously she is going back and forth with the dealership, which is not owned by Jeep but is an independent dealer. I also looked into getting Sirius XM internet radio, but again that still does not have the XM stations I want, so I cant cover this on my own without spending hundreds. But I shouldnt have to do that anyway. The issue isnt just a few channels. The issue is that Jeep is not providing something that is promised and is listed on the sales receipt. I dont want to make a huge deal about this. All I want is what I was promised. How about it, Jeep?
2009 Jeep Patriot - Stalling issues, mechanics dont know and cant fix because there is no warning lights, the Jeep is dangerous to drive, too many others complaining of the same thing. Chrysler doesnt seem take care about putting peoples lives at risk.
Its hot in Henderson, 110 in the day time. Sometimes the airflow gets stuck on the foot vent setting and will not cycle up to the vents that blow on your face, Not all the time only some times. Currently the dealer is stumped. Bought the car new in 2013. 35,000 miles on it so still under warranty. Has this happened to anyone else?
I contacted the two listed below back in November 2010. Both locations asked if I bought the vehicle from them. I told them no and they told me they could not help me. I was told the same thing by Bob Baker Jeep in Carlsbad, CA.Why is it that none of these dealers have any interest at all in helping a Jeep customer? Do you have the address for the corporate office where I can send a formal complaint?
I own a 2005 Jeep Liberty Sport. I have had to replace window regulators at least 5 times. Usually the dealership took care of it but I had to pay for a few. And now, in 2013, the last one replaced has broken again. But this one was already replaced by what I was told was the improved window regulator. But just like the old ones, it had about a 2-year life span. But the dealership only gives out a 1-year warranty. Just for this reason, I do not recommend a Jeep Liberty unless the window regulators have been upgraded from the cheapest plastic to metal.
I took my 04 jeep in for oil leaks from front and rear oil seals. They removed the transmission. Now, the transmission shifts wrong and hard. Also, transmission has a hard time engaging and disengaging. Also, my windows and door locks don’t work again. I put the Jeep up on a rack and found the transmission vent tube hanging torn ground wires that were not disconnected when transmission was removed along with missing tarns oil pan bolts. All this so-called work was done by the Jeep dealer in Hilo, Hawaii.
I wanted to write and ask if anyone else has had a problem with their Jeep Liberty suddenly catching fire. I had this happen to me for no apparent reason. No warning lights, no strange sounds, nothing. I was driving along and LUCKILY a driver behind me honked his horn and flashed his lights to get my attention. I came to a stop at a stoplight and thats when smoke and flames started to come out of the vents and fill the interior of the Jeep. I pulled off the road into a convenience store parking lot, jumped out and ran inside. The fire department arrived in less than 5 minutes but my Jeep was a complete loss. I have attached the pictures to show the aftermath. THANK GOD that I escaped but sadly I was left with a pile of ash that my insurance company would only pay a depreciated value for the remains...
Radio and screen went out. Went to dealer repairs radio. Went blank next day. Put new radio in Los lugs heated seated steering wheel back up camera auto climate control. I am demanding a new jeep.
My 2009 Jeep Patriot stalls out in traffic. Sometimes at a stop, sometimes on the freeway at 60mph. In July 2011, I drove this Patriot, which I have had complete confidence in since my purchase two years previous, to Los Angeles. While there, the Jeep stalled out and I was unable to start it again. I had it towed to the Chrysler dealership in Glendale. The gentleman who helped me in the service department got my Jeep in and repaired in mere hours. Originally they charged me $100 deductible against the warranty I purchased when I got the car. That same afternoon, the dealer called and said that charge had been a mistake and that they would be sending me a check, which they did.Less than two weeks later, however, I was in San Diego and the Patriot started stalling on me again. Rather than have it towed I was able to drive it into the dealer, though it stalled multiple times on the way. They had the car for three days and in the end, replaced the computer. They charged me the $100 deductible again, which I was fine with since the last dealer was reimbursing me. The Patriot drove fine for a few more weeks, all the way back to my home in Texas where it ended up parked for about two weeks without being driven. Then, when I was going to drive it, it wouldnt start. It seemed to be the exact same issue. In Texas I had it towed to the original dealer Id purchased it from - Lone Star Chrysler in Cleburne. Their service department, knowing that I was soon to depart for California again for school, was attentive and though they admitted that they couldnt get the Patriot to do the same thing, they said theyd narrowed it down to two things - one being the ignition (I remember this because I had to bring my second key to them for programming). They also charged me the $100 deductible against my warranty.Two weeks later Im back in San Diego where I am attending ministry school. The Patriot stalled out on me one evening on the way back to neighboring El Cajon, where I am living. The next day I was able to drive it into San Diego proper and to class. That afternoon I dropped it back to Midway Chrysler - the dealership that had worked on the Patriot previously. Midway Chrysler had the Patriot for two weeks, leaving me without a vehicle. They have repaired the Patriot but have wanted me to pay the $100 deductible before picking it up, which I am both economically unable to do and ethically just not comfortable doing.How long will Chrysler steal the warranty deductible from me for a problem on their car that they made? This car is an accident waiting to happen - a deathtrap. Stalling in the road can and will eventually lead to an accident that will not only inconvenience people but could possibly take someones life. Ive called the Chrysler warranty number. They have told me to continue working with the dealer. I called the dealer in Texas and they originally said that if I could get the car back to Texas that they would buy the Patriot back. Id be willing to do that at the risk of having to drive the car another 1,500 miles, but after a weekend they changed their mind. Lone Star Chrysler in Cleburne, Texas did not want to buy back the Patriot, nor have they had any interest in helping me.
I purchased 2013 Jeep Patriot Latitude in January of 2013. Since the car was purchased, I have had nothing but problems. The first issue was that the windshield wipers kept turning on by themselves. I took the car back to the dealerships service department only to be told that a star case was made. No resolution. The second issue that occurred was where the car completely stalled out at 10 MPH which nearly caused a terrible accident that could have injured myself and my 9 year old daughter. I had to turn the car off, wait and then turn it back on. The car stalled again. After 20 minutes of waiting, the car began to drive as normal. I took the car back to the dealership AGAIN. The service manager kept my Jeep for the entire day (keep in mind that they do not even issue rentals) and called to tell me that ANOTHER STAR CASE was made.After my third visit for the stalling issue and for the windshield wipers, the dealership finally decided to change the wipers relay switch which seemed to stop the problem. After 5 visits for the stalling issue, there still has not been any resolution. I have contacted Jeep over three times, via phone and by the email on the site and still have yet to be contacted from the representative in one business day. I am furious that I cannot get any type of satisfactory service. I will NEVER purchase another Chrysler product. I have began exploring other options for a new vehicle which is sad being that I am a single father who just needs reliable transportation to provide for his daughter. Oh by the way, today is 5/15/15, I had to take my Jeep into the service dealership at 10:15AM EST for yet another diagnostic check.
I bought a 2007 Jeep Patriot and the check engine was on. I had it put into the purchase paper work that it need to be fixed upon my purchase. I had my dad pull the code on it and it was a P2004 intake manifold stuck open. I informed the dealer of the code and they said that they will get it fixed and they had to order the part. The dealership had my Jeep for three days and when I got it back, the light was off but the next day, while driving home from work, the light came on again. I again had my dad pull the code and he said P2004 intake manifold stuck open. Upon further investigation of the engine, he also stated that there doesnt seem to have been any work done on the engine. What can I do? I cannot afford to put almost $1000 into a vehicle. The dealership is being uncooperative as well.
I purchased a Jeep which turned out to have a tpms warning light on. Took Jeep to Turnersville Jeep who said it needed a new wireless control module. Agreed to have them replaced the wireless control module for 263 dollars. Picked up jeep after service department was closed only to find tpms light still on. Took the jeep back to Turnersville Jeep and they had it for two more weeks and still couldnt fix problem. Decide to try a different dealership to see if they could fix it. Pellegrino Jeep had car for over a week with no success. I cant believe a car that they made they cannot fix. Such an annoying problematic. I forgot to mention that the accessory position does not work and they couldnt fix that problem. Im at my wits end. Can anyone fix these two problems?
I own a 2006 Jeep Commander, that I bought new. I have all of my receipts for everything, my truck has been well maintained, except for the fact that it has leaked since the beginning. I have had it serviced 7 times for the leak, and yet, I have a huge puddle in my passenger area, yet again. I dont know if there is mold in it, but they assure me that there isnt. I cant be sure. The car has also stalled for no reason several times. They cant explain that either. I dont know what to do with this truck. I have spent a small fortune getting it fixed over and over again, for the same problems.
Purchased a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Ive had it for about, oh 3 years now. After reading everyones stories, I am not sure if I want to eve go with a new vehicle, lol, only because since I have had my jeep. I have put 4 tie rod ends on this puppy as well as 4 ball joint in the last three yeas. And just yesterday, I went to pump my back tire up and I have another busted tire sensor making it the 3rd one have to replace. And now my brake drums needs replaced and check engine light has now came on. So thinking KIA is a great car, found out that will be the last car I will buy, and Ford no way Pontiacs ignition problem and Jeep Cherokee. I mean wow, at this point I think a horse would be more liable than Americas crappy cars and customer service is something else.
While I was driving my 2014 Jeep Patriot with 32,900 miles on it and this is what happened 7-20-16 (see pics). I purchased this vehicle 4-28-16. Dealer says 4-5 days before it will be serviced. This is a serious problem!
Brand new loser cars from 1996 to 2012: Ive been a faithful customer to Chrysler vehicles for over 17 years and every product that we have purchased always resulted in having a serious problem(s). We would have the vehicle serviced and traded up and purchase a new vehicle. The trust in your car products and materials has been irretrievably shattered. I purchased a brand new 1996 Chrysler Sebring which had consistent problems, traded up, purchased a brand new 1998 Chrysler Concorde that had transmission locked up, paid the car off and purchased a 2003 fully loaded Jeep Liberty. What a travesty. Here I am again, old faithful, believing this vehicle will be different psych. With every vehicle I purchased, things never got any better, only more repair bills. Currently, Im at Russ Darrow on S. 108th Street with outrageous repair costs on my Jeep including consistent ABS brake light problems, unresolved engine light problems, replaced air compression motor & pulley drive system, belts locked up, transmission leaking, water reservoir and of course, its nobodys fault. After keeping up with all my maintenance checks on all my cars with the dealership, I still cant keep a vehicle that can run successfully past 70,000 miles before requiring major repair. This is ridiculous. At this point, I am no longer interested in purchasing another Chrysler product ever as long as I live! I will be following up with a complaint with to the BBB and anyone else that will hear my complaint.
In October of 2009, I purchased a 2009 Jeep Compass as a trade in from a Chrysler 300 that was too hard on gas. Now July 2011, less than 3 years later, I have just paid $4200+ to replace a transmission that was blown. I also had to rent a vehicle to the tune of $300.00+ to accommodate by business travel as I am the owner of 2 businesses that require extensive travel. I have written 3 letters in total to the Windsor Office of Chrysler sent it both by mail & fax and have had not even so much as a courtesy phone call or reply from them regarding my very urgent situation with one of their vehicle. The mere fact that none has taken the time to even seem as if they are addressing my concerns extremely agitates me. I Interact daily with rental car companies who also purchase vehicles from Chrysler and I am extremely saddened by their lack of customer service. I am a paying customer to the vehicle manufacturer and deserve to be treated much better than I have thus far.
I have great experience with my Jeep Compass. Good on gas, handles well in bad weather, it is a four cylinder engine, and comfortable. Get good gas mileage and parts are fairly affordable, too. It has heated seats, also has four wheel drive, very roomy for size of vehicle, has built in CD player and design is with customer comfort in mind, overall appearance of the vehicle catches the eye and it has a smaller engine which is fuel economy but has the power to get thru anything. However, the Jeep should have a bigger trunk or storage area or should come with a compartment on top of rack for better storage of road side equipment and car maintenance.
I bought this 2006 Jeep Liberty Limited new in January 2007. On March 19, 2010, the drivers rear power window regulator broke and the window will not go up. I brought it to the dealer to have it fixed. Luckily, I have extended warranty and just paid a $50 deductible. Today, Feb. 19, 2013, the drivers rear power window regulator broke again and luckily the extended warranty is still good until January 2014. I have to pay another $50 deductible. Even the service advisor said the Jeep 2006 Liberty do have a lot of people having problem with the rear window regulator.Based on this history with this Jeep Liberty model year having problem with the rear window regulator again and again on so many owners that bought this Jeep Liberty model, it should be a manufacture defect and it should be recalled. If I did not have extended warranty, it would have cost me $250 to have it fixed. Who knows how many times the power window regulator will break down for years to come?
Jeep Renegade is really underpowered, really heavy and bulky. Has a lot of blind spots. Seats are semi comfortable. Not worth the value in my opinion. Rides and handles with really smooth. Could be better on gas mileage.
Ground squirrels chewed through the wire to my horn and I took my Jeep in to the dealer. They said the warranty did not cover the repair job, and said it would take 1 and 1/2 hours to fix. The Jeep Sat in the lot for 45 minutes before they said it was ready and charged me 150.00 dollars to fix the horn wire. I told them it should have been covered and that I would let their competitors know that the Mighty Jeep is not rodent proof! They laughed and took my money. I had a GMC Sierra for 17 years and never had any rodent problems. I think Jeep has a design problem. I looked into rodent problems online and found this to be more common a problem that most would think. Will wait for the class action lawsuit to get my money back! I have a receipt of the transaction, have contacted Jeep with no reply yet. I also contacted GMC, Chevy, Toyota and Ford. So far GMC and Chevy have responded. I thought they would be interested in Jeep problems.
I love my Jeep Renegade but I wish it had more features. The dealer did not know anything about the Jeep and was very misleading. I was upset once I signed the paperwork. I shouldve test drive it as well. Dont have Uconnect and the dealer led me to believe I would. I also would improve the price. I still think I was paying for the name Jeep and overpaid on the car. Nevertheless, having a Remote start is by far the best. I Love starting it 10 mins before I leave in the morning remotely. I also love power windows and having tire pressure gauges.
Ok, I had an issue with my jeep stalling as I was driving. Theres no noise, it ran quietly, but it just stalled. After a little while, I got it started and I went straight home gassing it to get there, then I parked it. After a couple of hours, I went back out to start it and it fired up like no problem occurred! But the next time I got in it, it started; and it was heading down the road, and it stalled on me again in the middle of an intersection endangering my life! Thank God, I had help after an hour or so; and I got it pulled into a parking lot to be towed later. We were told it was probably the fuel filter or pump going bad. So we forked out $200 to get it changed. Did that change the problem? No. It started up again. I took it down the road and it stalled out again. So with this going on, I did some digging on the internet and found others were having these issues.A lot were saying that the PCM module is bad. So I called Jeep to find out about a recall on the PCM module. They said I had to take it to one of their service places to get verification that this was the issue. They couldnt get it to start and said I needed to change an SKIM module ($375.00). Its more out-of-pocket. The reason the SKIM module got burned out, by what the mechanic said, was because of the power control module. So now that 1 month or so has passed and my daughter has a heart condition and my mother is 3 hours away having quadruple bypass surgery, I dont have a vehicle to get there and be with her. And I finally got a response from Jeep Daimler Chrysler that it isnt under warranty to be fixed. Even though its their malfunctioning part that was put on the vehicle when made, they dont want to be accountable for it. So either we pay the $800.00 for the PCM module or I dont have a reliable safe-driving vehicle. How can manufacturers get away with this?
The Jeep was purchased in Utah where I have had nothing but problems from the beginning. It started with bad tire pressure sensor, then rear plastic window cracked, which is cracking again. Then a water leak started on soft top, which I have been to the dealer at least six times for them to replace seals and it still leaks worse today. Then the complete clutch and clutch release bearing went bad at 20,000 miles, which started to make noise again two months later and is going out again. Then the A/C didnt work, half doors flex out a half inch while driving on the freeway. They said it is normal. Then the front end rattles, the tailgate rattles loud and the traction control goes off for no reason on dry pavement, which makes the gas pedal unresponsive. It happened five times, then it knocks and pings abnormally, burns a quart of oil every 3000 miles. The brake pedal clicks, then the rear brake pads completely wear out while the same time, the front brake pads have no wear at all. Then the zipper on the window doesnt work, stereo speakers make loud popping noise. Most of all these defects still are happening. The answer I got from traction control malfunction was lifes a risk. The answer I got for the front end noise was turn your radio up. I have never had such a bad experience with a vehicle or unprofessional dealers in my life. I also want to mention how much of my time is spent at the dealer trying to get them to help me. I bought this vehicle brand new and I feel like I have been robbed.
7/1/21 I was in a terrible car accident on the interstate. 28k damage to my Jeep Wrangler! I had no airbags nor did my seatbelts lock, we were violently thrown into dash, my husband has facial fractures even. Jeep did a inspection and denies any liability. So never ever spend 45k on a jeep wrangler unless it your preferred coffin!
The brakes on our 2009 Jeep Commander have been squeaking very loud since we bought it. I have taken it in a few times. And the dealer said its just how they are. I paid for brake inspection to have them tell me that every time. This is our third Chrysler. If this is not taken care of, I will no longer be a customer of yours. I will let my friends and family know. I will try very hard to push a Ford or GM product on them! Thanks. Vince :)
I am writing seeking help. I have failed to receive any acceptable resolution to my problem. Please see below my submission to the NHTSA. Please contact me at any time so we can reach a quick and mutual resolution.The rear window regulators in the 06 Jeep Liberty are failing at an alarming rate. Ours has had both break once and the drives side twice now. I have contacted Jeep with my frustrations with zero help. There are countless claims online, with friends, acquaintances, and even my local jeep dealer (Easton, MD) that all support that this is not an isolated issue.I have again been told that there will be no recall because this is not a safety issue. I disagree strongly! When driving down the highway and the window regulator fails, the window drops. What happens if there is something leaning up against the window, a child in that seat, a pet? The risks are huge to the safety of the vehicle occupants and others on the road should something fall out.The other thing that is very alarming is that everything is beginning to present itself at a similar time for the vehicles showing signs of the problem. Jeep claims it is due to plastic parts failing due to not enough use? This makes no sense. The rear window has no support and falls inside the window. It is currently held up with packing tape.To support my claim that this is an issue affecting a large number of people and clearly not an isolated issue, please see the web sites listed below.
Its hard to explain it all but in a nutshell -- Jeep doesnt stand behind their product and their customer service is a disservice. In June 2018, my Liberty roof got stuck open. The local dealer was helpful in getting the roof closed but said the part to repair it was back ordered 48 weeks. When the roof started to leak a bit more, I called Jeep/Chrysler to find a solution. OMG. Useless people and baloney answers. The part is in manufacturing. I said, Good. How many are you shipping next week? IDK. How many Jeeps did you produce with a sky slider roof? IDK. A case manager will call you back. Oh that is not my dealership.They should be ashamed of themselves to not support a car that is only 8 yrs old and allow the interior to ruined by the rain and not offer a viable solution to protect your investment. I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND A JEEP PRODUCT AGAIN and I have had several. Buy a TOYOTA!!! or Hyundai --my second car is GREAT!
My wife went to an automated car wash. When the wash was done, she put the Jeep in drive and the vehicle took off on its own. She could not get the Jeep to slow down at all. Using all her force on the brake, she could not slow the vehicle down. She ended up flipping the Jeep several times, totaling the vehicle. Thank God there were no pedestrians or other vehicles involved. She was lucky that she was not killed. She has several broken ribs and lacerations and was badly bruised. She’s never been in such pain. I think that Chrysler needs to look at this situation very closely. It also seems that the government should be stepping in also seeing how many of these incidents have now happened. Could someone please help us with this on whom to contact about this?
My 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with 19,000 miles on was great right up until the Power Transfer Unit failed which in turn cause the transmission to catastrophically fail. Jeep is refusing to cover the $13,000 repair bill under warranty. As I was coming to a stop at a rural intersection, I got hung up on a small snow drift. After about 30 minutes of getting in and out of the car while trying all the different 4x4 modes and shoveling, everything exploded. By exploded, I mean I was picking up shrapnel off the ground and transmission fluid was pouring out. This happened while the transmission temp gauge was no higher than 180f. When a person is stuck in the snow, it usually requires spinning the tires a bit, trying to go both forward & reverse, etc. I wont say I was babying the Cherokee, because I wasnt, but I was not revving it up to redline or being overly hard on it. Jeep of course is trying to say its all my fault but as of this moment, they have not released any specific details to me on exactly how it was my fault or what the criteria is for it being my fault. I do know that after buying a brand new $40,000 Jeep vehicle, I wont ever buy an FCA product again. Dont believe the all weather capable hype, the photos I have prove that it isnt!
I brought my Jeep Liberty in for an alignment due to excessive tire wear only to find out both ball joints are shot and about to come apart. Called about the recall and was told mine did not fall into the recall.... REALLY!!!!!! Mine was mfr in June 2006 and the recall was for all before March 2006. Jeep has a history of using inferior parts then wont stand behind it.
Jeep Liberty 2004. After replacing a battery a week ago, I had a stall problem. I mentioned the battery because of a noise I heard before it died that I did not take much noise in but relates to the stall I had this week. I was coming home from work in congested traffic and started hearing a whirring noise. I heard it several times and noticed it was coming from my dash. This is also when I noticed the dash lights (radio and odometer lights were flickering). I also noticed a slight lose of power. As I came up to a light and stopped, the Jeep stalled. I quickly pushed the hazard lights, put it in park and restarted it. No problems since. I am concerned about driving it. What if I had been driving and not stopping at a light? I was in bumper to bumper traffic.
Brand new car broke down - New car overheated in the week it was to be repaired! During this time, no one even apologized and offered to give me another car in return! Friday, I took it and it turned out that the cause of failure has not been arranged and the car overheats again! I depend on my car, and a week I had to sit home and not work! I do not know now how long do I have to wait! I called customer service, Jeep and nothing good has happened! Please help! I am paying now for what I don’t have!
While driving my two young children, my 2010 Jeep Commander has been stalling while driving. The car completely shut down without warning. I have been working with the service department but they cant seem to repair it. Instead of making sure that I am safe, they continue to replace parts without knowing if it will fix the problem. It is very scary when this happens and Im afraid for my life and my children.
My Jeep Liberty has been a safe, reliable vehicle that has required only routine maintenance. Its got a great capacity in the rear for its size. Convenient when Ive bought small furniture items. I also like the four-wheel drive. We could tow this car behind our RV, and it would support the lift for my husbands mobility scooter without dragging. However, the seats could be more comfortable.
Jeep Extended Warranty Scam! If you just bought a New Jeep and you opt for the Lifetime Warranty then you have just been SCAMMED! Here is what happened to me, to prove my point. I bought a New 2017 Jeep Renegade on Jan 2018. After some thought and searching for an Extended Vehicle Protection plan, I decide to go with Mopar’s Vehicle Protection (MVP). So, I called Mopar, and the salesman told me that as soon as the Manufacturer Warranty ends then, the Extended Warranty would kick in!Well, Folks, This Was a Major Lie! The salesman NEVER said that this replaces your Manufacturer Warranty the Day that you buy it! AND it will automatically insert itself back to the date that you bought the vehicle! So, basically, you are paying for the Manufacturer Warranty! How stupid do I feel? I feel very stupid at this point! Who in their right mind would pay for a warranty that is FREE for 5 years? I know if I was told that this warranty would take the place of the Manufacturer Warranty from the time you bought it, I would say, “Hell-NO!” This is a Major SCAM People!So, I called Mopar (800-521-9922) and asked to speak to Admin to tried to explain that the Salesman at Mopar lied to me by not telling me that this Warranty would run Concurrent with the Manufacturer Warranty (Take its place) and that I would be paying for my warranty from the get-go! Now I don’t know about you folks, but who in their right mind would pay for something that is given to them for FREE? So, I tried to explain this to “Danu”. I don’t know the spelling of his name, but that is how he said it when I talked to him on June 28, 2019, @ 12 PM Mtz. He told me that this is correct and that I will get a refund back minus $1000 for the time that I was on this Extended Warranty Protection plan from Mopar, even though, Mopar (Jeep) was already given me for 5 year or 60,000 miles for free! I asked to speak to a supervisor of Manager and he said there isn’t any and then transfer me to a survey on how well this call went! LOL, of course, I gave the LOWEST possible score that I could give him! And, I kissed my $1000 goodbye! Needless to say, Jeep has just put another unhappy customer on the street to tell the masses what is going on behind the curtain of deception! So, people if you feel like being SCAMMED And throwing your money down the ** then just opt into the Jeep Lifetime Warranty Program! T. ** Colorado
I started my 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport to warm it up and after 10 minutes, the gas tank exploded. If you have one, I would sell it now before this happens to you. I will never buy a car with the Jeep name ever again! If my family would have been in it, I would have Jeeps ** right now. They should really be investigated for faulty manufacturing as I hear more and more horrible things are happening to almost every model of Jeep that is out right now.
I have a 2008 Jeep Liberty with an extended manufacturers warranty. On Sept. 17, 2012, while traveling on the interstate, I accelerated to pass a vehicle and the pedal stuck. This has been happening randomly since the first incident. I removed the floor mats to make sure that was not the issue. The dealership was able to duplicate the problem on their first try. This is not covered under the ext. mfg. warranty as it is considered an accessory (yes, I quote) even though it is listed as Miscellaneous Electrical System Repair on the dealerships service order. They want $385 to fix this issue. Chrysler Customer Care said due to your cars status, and you being the 2nd owner, theres nothing we can do. First I dont see how an accelerator pedal is an accessory and secondly do not see how this should be my liability. Im extremely frustrated and angry. Anyone else have this problem?
I had an accident on 1/4/12 where I hit another vehicle going 35 mph. My vehicle was imbedded in the back end of the vehicle I hit. My air bags didnt go off and I was told that it was due to the deceleration of the vehicle. I never even had a chance to hit the breaks. The man I spoke with at Chrylser was rude and condescending. I would like to think that if I buy a vehicle with air bags that they would work if I needed them. I do not feel the least bit safe with the thought of having to drive around in this vehicle especially with my children.
I have put a ton of money in my front end. Practicably rebuilt it, Im not in any state to waste any more money. My brakes have been replaced about six times. I have only owned this jeep for about three years. I need answers right away on the recall parts please. My jeep Laredo is a 2000. Please help. I transport elderly around town and Im nervous. I care about their safety. Thank you.
I leased 2021 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited 4xe couple months back from Stoneridge (Livermore) where started facing an issue with hybrid sign at odometer after couple months. Meanwhile, I went to close by dealership i.e. ELK Grove Jeep where they recognized or analyzed an issue with electric wiring needs to replace because those got burned out due to engineering or mechanical issue. Beside, they gave an estimate first for 1 week from fixation perspective and now they are keep on ignoring since September 2021.Moreover, I also talked to Jeep Customer service and also raised the case includes escalation where case Manager is careless as well and not responsive because they never reached out to me even single time about the status or any feedback. Im literally fed up and stressed because they are harassing and ignoring customer instead of helping. Also, I requested them that my health is not good and I cant bear stress due to lung infection after covid19 impact but I want to state here on public side as well and manifest there carelessness about team services. Please, help me to resolve my matter asap otherwise Ii need to step-up for case filiation. Thanks & Regards.
Jeep Grand Cherokee 2001 - I have been waiting for several years to be contacted by Chrysler regarding the potential problem with the rear gas tank exposure, as the gas tank blows up when you are rear ended by another vehicle. Many deaths have occurred and we are still waiting for the safety issue to be resolved! Please let us know any status of the rear end gas tank issue. Many thanks.
Jeep Liberty runs great and fun to drive. Great styling and large cargo area. Good visibility and all around vehicle. However a little noisy. But it is a little older model, New ones may be quieter.
I purchased my 2014 Hero Latitude in Oct 2015. I have had nothing but issues with this vehicle. I purchased it with a little over 35 thousand miles. I have had a new transmission in about Feb or March in 2016. I have had a transmission mount replaced I. 2017 and another in -Oct 2020. I have had the shifter replaced or repaired about 2016. I’m having an issues once again with the shifter. I have had the throttle replaced in 2020. I current have over 76 thousand miles on my vehicle because I’m too afraid to drive too far. I will not even take a road trip for that reason.
I paid $3000.00 for a lifetime warranty on my Jeep. I have never missed an oil change and I check all of my fluids but my Jeep Liberty does not have a dip stick for the transmission fluid. My transmission went out in my Jeep. I was so happy that I purchased the lifetime warranty until I took my jeep in and found out that they will not pay for my transmission because they said the oil pan rusted and the transmission fluid leaked out. The jeep dealership never mentioned any rust or leaks when I got my oil changed, there is no light that comes on on the dash to indicate low fluid and no dip stick to check the fluid. I paid an extra $3000 for that peace of mind but now I have to pay another $3000 for a new transmission.
I bought from Carmax a 2006 Liberty. Horrible on gas miles and noise in the back wheels that Carmax service did not fix. So worried after 3 months, I went back and took 2010 Patriot with 51k. Such bad decision. I regret so much. It is a fun car but full of issues. Suspension and brake noise in the first week. I tried to get fix. Two months with this car, 6 times at Carmax service, 2 weeks with rental car. Service and sales managers trying to figure out a stupid drum brake noise. The last time, they suggested take other car. And I did. The worse car brand ever. Never again! What a shame!
I got a 2018 Jeep Wrangler that is trailer rated. I paid $42,000 for it for the fact that I like to go off road. On New Years Eve my wife was coming home in a downpour on the highway when the jeep just stop running. She pulled over to get out of the way. She tried starting it a couple of times and nothing. I went and picked her up 150 miles away and had it towed to my house. I called the dealer and had to wait 14 days before they could look at it.Two days later I got a call that water got into the motor and it would be $12,000 for a new one. I asked what about my 7 year 100 mile warrant they said it is not covered. I called Chrysler and they said no good. I looked up what trail rated stood for and it said that the jeep could go in water up to 19 to 30 inches. When I said that to them they said that does not mean rain. So to fix my jeep I had to go through my insurance. I will never buy a Chrysler again and have told my friends not to use that dealer or buy a Chrysler. P.s. I work in a company where there 46,000 employees and I posted this on their website.
My 2004 Jeep Liberty keeps stalling. While driving, the jeep stalled and would not become idle. This was right in the middle of a busy intersection, with our kids in the jeep. We were told by a Jeep dealership that the engine computer has shorted out, and needs to be replaced. The cost is $1,100.00. They do not offer a new computer, only a rebuilt one that is available through the dealer.
I have a 2008 Jeep Patriot and my car continues to stall. While driving down the highway with my baby, a 2-year old, the call stalled and I had to use the momentum from before hand to steer over to the emergency lane. Upset and shaken, I called to tell my fiance because all this began after having a routine oil change just four days earlier with only one day of driving in between.In either case, Im in the emergency lane just moments before a possible rear ending. The car now parked and turned off. I waited five minutes before restarting it. As soon as the car was able (meaning it kept stalling within same day), I took it back to the dealership. They told me the oil is fine and that now my check engine light and oil indicator light is on. Im baffled. It wasnt before. They asked me to pay them over $400 to diagnose and perform preventive services that werent needed prior to them changing my oil.I left with intention of contacting corporate FTC (1-877-) and NHTSA (1-888-). To my distress, these events happened four more times before I made it home. My home is a five-minute drive from the dealer. I am petrified to drive it. I am so scared that if and when it happens again, I wont be able to get to safety before something horrific happens. As I read similar complaints to that of my own, I see that Jeep has made this a recall issue for Cherokees and Compass only and that is what baffles me. If this issue is occurring with Patriots as well with different year makes and nationwide, isnt that at least worth looking into considering the safety issues it poses?
My 2007 Jeep Commander has had a no start no crank issue for over a year. I started by changing ignition switch which fixed the problem for 6 months. Problem came back, changed battery. Problem returned 2 weeks later for good. Changed ECM as per service bulletin.
Just bought my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee this March. Since then my radio keeps going off and on and my light for my airbag is now going off. Anyone else having these problems?
After having a tiny fender bender, or flair bender in this case my car needed to have some minor work done. After waiting a month for parts I decided I was tired of waiting. I was going to be proactive and go above the body shop to see if I could get any help. After contacting several dealers who could not answer the simplest questions about the parts, I decided to call Jeep on my own. I used both the listed contact email and phone number from their website. After being put on intergalactic hold on 1st call, hung up on when I asked to speak to a mgr on the 2nd call, the third call and 3 hours of time actually let me start a case claim. I was told their “excellent “ customer service dept would get back to me within 48 hrs. That’s not excellent when you are having issues that have already taken a month to be addressed. I have to be honest when I say I couldn’t wait the 48 hrs and called back after 24. Again given a scripted runaround statement or “FACTS” as they called it and told that I could keep waiting for my case person to contact me but they were not going to tell me anything different than what she did. Her name was SHAY and she supposedly is the end all be all of customer service at Jeep. She has no boss, no training personnel, or any other contact information to give you. No way to even report the fact that she was extremely belittling. So that’s it! Final answer! Do not pass go do not collect 200 bucks. So in short I have been left in a perpetual waiting period, for some parts out there in the universe. They may come in they may not. And as for as Jeep is concerned I don’t think they care one bit if you were happy with your purchase, happy with their customer service or about you at all. They will NOT stand behind their brand, or give you any assistance once you drive that car off the lot. I’d be happy to speak with anyone at Jeep other than the call center people who I feel were not only unhelpful but downright rude... But I’m not holding my breath.
I bought a used 2007 Jeep Compass from a private party and a few moths later with only 47000 miles the transmission started making a whining noise. I brought it to a Dodge Chrysler dealer and they told me it needed a new transmission at a cost of $3840. I complained to the dealer and spoke with Chrysler customer service and they wouldnt help out with the cost. A transmission shouldnt fail in only 47,000 miles. Research shows lots of issues with the CVT transmission failing with the Jeep Compass. Dont buy a Jeep. They dont stand by their product.
I am a lifelong Jeep owner. Only ever had 2 cars that were not Jeeps. Always been a big fan, until my last two. I have had nothing but problems with my last two cars, which were purchased new. The defects have been ongoing since purchase. They have all kinds of electrical problems, all warning lights coming on for no reason at all, including the check engine light. The car will often not start or turn over at all, even though all the lights come on when I turn the key. The back gate on my last Jeep snapped for no reason at all. They fixed it 4 times and each time it would snap again immediately after being fixed. When I take the car in for service they tell me they can find nothing wrong, over and over again. I even have video, but it does me no good. They know that Jeeps keep selling, so they do nothing to help. After repeatedly taking my Jeep in for service and getting no help, I am selling it and will not buy a Jeep again. It is 2 years old.
I bought a Jeep Commander three years ago at this dealership. While it had a current inspection, the tires needed to be replaced immediately. The airbag light has been on since I bought the car. The heating system (and cooling) does not shut off. I was told when I bought it that the heating system was fine.There are no lights on the dash for the heating/cooling system. Now the transmission is acting up. The tack will go very high as it gets stuck in low gear. When I stop the car, turn it off and back on, it somehow must reset itself. My window controls on the driver side door no longer work in the front of the car. The seats are all badly stained. I have had this to a dealer in Warren, PA for repairs, but they have been unable to find the problems. Now, of course, my extended warranty is up and I do not have the funds to purchase another one. This car is a money pit. I love how it drives, but now Im stuck with an unreliable vehicle that I still owe $14,000 on.
That my 2019 went up in smoke and to this day they have no idea why and they are not investigating why it happen. Thank god I was not driving and they have the worst customer service. No one gets back to you.
This vehicle we have had been great for us for the last 5 yrs. The only issue is the motor. We had the lifters and rockers replaced under warranty just under the 100 000 miles but they went bad again and we dont have the money to repair it again. The only problem with the 2014 Jeep is the motors have issues that we believe Jeep knows about but have not said anything. I have heard the 3.6 is not a good motor.
I have had a number of issues with my 09 Jeep Patriot, I am not sure where to begin. Ive still have a leaky sunroof that Ive given up on ever getting repaired. My Patriot was at the dealer (Hickman Motors) for almost 2 months trying to find a problem with a defective drivers side airbag switch, only to finally discover that it wasnt connected properly by the technician who did the diagnostics. Backtrack. When I purchased the Patriot from Hickman Motors, it had less than 60,000 Km on it. The salesman (**) told me that it had 2 years, Bumper to Bumper, left on the Extended Service Warranty that covered everything except oil changes, wipers, tires, brakes, etc. Shortly after purchasing the vehicle, I noticed that the gearshift would occasionally pop out of gear and the shiftier knob, itself, would pop off. This issue was bought to the attention of the service department on several occasions. After replacing the shiftier knob, they determined that the transmission was ok. The problem progressively got worse, to the point that I would have to turn off the engine in order to change into 1st or reverse gear.Long story short, now that the vehicle is no longer under warranty, they advise me that parts in the transmission need to be replaced and it would cost me approximately $2000. I spoke with the dealer and the Chrysler could -care -less rep and was told that there was nothing they could do because the warranties have expired. All I received was an apology from Chrysler and deniability and avoidance from the dealer that this problem was an ongoing issue (even though I have documentation to the contrary). I eventually took the Patriot to a specialty transmission shop and had the transmission repaired with quality parts for less than have the dealer quote. I am pursuing this matter further. I simply wanted to voice my concerns and caution prospective automotive buyers to stay away from Jeep products.PS: The issue with the rear end trailer arm assembly and suspension is another big problem that I will probably post about another day. Thank you for listening.
I purchased this Jeep Patriot 2012 new in May 2012. Sales guy told me the GPS can be updated 2x annually for +/-R500-00 a shot. It is severely outdated; they cannot get updates and tell me that when they do come, it will be +/-R2,500-00.
Dashboard material is all wrinkled and de-laminating. Dealership not interested, Chrysler Canada not interested in helping with the issue. $70,000 vehicle that now looks like hell. Tires from new only lasted 50,000K and 4 wheel transmission motor failed 2 times in warranty and once costing me $900 just outside warranty. Never will buy anything from Chrysler again.
I have had my Jeep Wrangler Sport Unlimited 4-door since September 7, 2012. The first heavy rain we had here in San Antonio, Texas left the driver side floor with a small puddle of water. The next screwed up thing that happened was the zipper broke on the rear window on the drivers side. I took in the Jeep to get the leak fixed; it still leaks. I contacted the dealership (Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in San Antonio, Texas) and found out that the service department has to find someone to re-sew the zipper. They have to find someone who will do this within the price Chrysler gave them. I paid a lot of money for this Jeep and the last I want is to have my zipper sewn back on! Thats **! I want my window fixed correctly! And if the whole top has to be replaced, then replace it! Its your screw up and you need to fix your screw up and if its going to cost you, too bad! Dont forget Chrysler - we bailed your ** out of trouble and you owe us! Get your ** together and fix your problems!
