2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 53k - I owned other jeeps with a good experience but now that Fiat owns them and quality is in the toilet. Engine light on less than 3000 miles, wont start, computer problems, and that is just a few. It spent 3 months in shop of the 7 months I owned it. I filed for Lemon law and Chrysler bought the car back. It is a very good looking car but has no quality at all. Bought toyota 4 runner with 25k miles and not one issue. Stay away from Fix it again tony aka Fiat who owns Chrysler. Their products are worse than the junk from the 80s. Mercedes Benz lucked out dumping this company!!! Oh and lets not talk about the lack of any service at the dealerships either.....I spent 53k and treat you like crap. Go buy lexus toyota etc - now there is service. Hope they figure this out. I am sorry for all the other poor suckers buying this junk.
This is my second Jeep. My 2001 Laredo experienced locking or freezing of the SUV. Very scary, driving down the interstate when your SUV freezes and you have no power or control, no power steering and you have to pray and glide to the side of the inner side of the highway. This happened to me 3 times.I traded it, and bought a 2006 Laredo and thought my problems would be gone. Just the start! With 60,000 miles on it, I have the transmission light going off and the system goes into a slipping out of gear or a revving. I have to shake the gear knob to get it out of the malfunctioning mode! I have read a lot of similar problems. Besides these not-so-scary problems are the following: the seat belt light is on with the ** chime on, the air bag light is on, the check gas cap is on, and my low tire light is on. Believe me, my husband has checked all four tires with the gauge, filled them properly and there is nothing wrong with the tires! I will never ever buy or suggest a jeep to anyone! I hate Chrysler and believe me they are aware of these problems.Today, I am on my way to shop to see what they can or cant do to the jeep. Last time, when I had the tranny light problem, the shop said, Well, it isnt on now! Well, that is Murphys law! It was on all the way down 44 miles to the service shop, but then when the ** jeep is being looked at, the light isnt on. This is a nightmare!
Jeep vibrates at 2200RPM 58MPH. Automatic transmission starts in 4th gear and gets worse as speed increases [like a tire out of balance]. Many lame excuses but no fix.
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.
Jeep Wrangler CRD 2008 - Its a great car... On 30,000 I had to change leaking power steering hose which appear to be mission impossible for Jeep Service department in Brisbane and finally private mob make a new hose for this car... On 40,000 I had to change dual mass flywheel... it fell apart. On advice from Jeep I went to other mob and this assembly and the clutch were modified to single mass flywheel. Just turned 60,000 and during acceleration from the traffic light it was a bang followed from loss of power and engine control light came permanent ON. From description from the manual... possible cause is blown catalytic converter... very cheap part. Only A$4000.00... This part should last the life time of the engine. What cause it... is terra icognita... even for Jeep experts in Brisbane. I cannot rate this car reliable. It is been driven only on city streets. Never been on the beach or in the mud. Is somebody from Jeep will stand up and take the bullet?
On August 29, 2012, I brought my 2010 Jeep Liberty (26k miles) to DarCars Jeep in Rockville, Maryland because my Sky Slider would not close. My Liberty was in the shop for 80, yes, eighty days! The shop replaced the Sky Slider two times, Jeep engineers flew out from Detroit, and then the manufacturer of the Sky Slider built a new one on the factory floor. Yay, it appears to work but I am selling it, I refuse to own a car from a dealership that cannot stand behind their product. Not only has Chrysler Jeep refused to take ownership of the defective Sky Slider they are refusing to cover the 77 days I had a rental. So, I pay a monthly car loan for a car I cannot drive then have to pay $2k in rental fees on top of it.I have written letters to Customer Relations (following the warranty guidelines for complaints) only to be told they were transferring my problem to another department. I still havent heard from anyone at Chrysler Jeep. This is my second Jeep - my last Jeep. Jeep has refused to stand behind their product. Jeeps dealership (the face of Jeep to the public) continuously ignored me during the 80 days my car was there. I would have to call three to four times a day to find out the status of my Jeep. When I asked if they could provide me a contact at Chrysler Jeep they said they would handle everything. Who is going to handle my $2k in rental? Single Moms, dont buy a Jeep. Get a car/truck/SUV from a company that actually works for their customer and stands behind their product because if it was up to Jeep I wouldnt have gotten to work every day, my kids to school and their activities.
I have a 2007 Jeep Commander. I have been having issues with not starting/stalling. I can be driving and when I shut it off and then go to turn it back on, it will not start. All I hear is a clicking noise under the hood by the long black fuse box. The lights, radio, etc. all works--it just wont start. This only happens every so often. I have not been able to narrow it down. No one seems to be able to pinpoint what the problem is. I have had so much money wrapped into figuring this out. I went online to try to see if anyone else has these issues. I was amazed at how many complaints of my kind there are. Wow. Jeep is getting away with this. I have been stranded so many times and unable to drive my Jeep Commander.
2012 Jeep Liberty Sky rider roof will not stay closed. I took it back to the dealer and they stated that Jeep no longer repairs the Sky Slider roof. Took it to a repair shop and they told me that they could not find parts as Jeep stop making it and there is no after market. I am stuck with nowhere to go. Jeep/Chrysler should do something to help all the Jeep aficionados who have the Sky Slider roof.
New car under 2000 miles returned to the dealer 4x + for the same issue. Dealer cannot fix and Jeep is not standing behind their product. Talked to a rude sr. escalation manager Patricia at Jeep with the resolution team (**) who told me she cannot help any further and is the highest level of support at the Jeep brand. Dealer stated there is nothing more they can do and reached out to Jeep for help. Getting the runaround by Jeep corp and would never buy another Jeep product again. Will pursue local lemon law and NCDS replacement claim. Truly unfortunate that Jeep does not care about their customers or products. Really hard to recommend Jeep to others and suggest they learn how to treat customers and fix their major quality issues.
I purchase my vehicle with 33k on it 3 weeks ago. It is in for service for the 3rd time (I havent even made a payment yet). 4 times now the transmission drags when leaving a stop and then clunks into gear. Before the 2nd service visit, I was driving down the highway and a loud alarm went off (not a ding or a chime) and there was something red on the display but it was gone before I could read it. My heart was jumping out of my chest as I was in rush hour interstate traffic and I thought it was going to stop. No codes the 1st and 2nd time so nothing was done. This time there was a body something code and waiting to hear on that today. At close to 36K I am concerned that I am entering the time when I start to have to pay for these services. I feel like I am being pacified at this point with no resolution to the issue. I mentioned all of the similar concerns reported on the internet and was told you cant always believe everything you read. My response was I am not lying about what is happening and I find it pretty interesting that others would report the same exact issues if they werent having them. I have filed a case with a LEMON LAW lawyer and just opened a case with JEEP/CHRYSLER directly. I love how it drives and looks but not sure how to rank the value. At this point it is going to cost me tons to repair down the road.
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.
I recently purchased a used 2007 Jeep Commander with a 5.7L HEMI engine. Before I bought the Jeep, I took it to a Jeep dealership and paid $150 to have a full inspection done. They passed the Jeep so I bought it two weeks ago. In the last two weeks, the Jeep has stalled three times whilst in motion! Last night, it stalled going 75mph on the freeway with kids in the car! This is just not safe! I called the NHTSA and they opened a case for me, but thats all they did for me. I called Jeep Customer Care, and they just told me I need to take it to a dealer and pay to have them diagnose it. I said, I just paid $150 for that. But no, they want me to pay a new fee for a new test. If you look online, this is obviously a very dangerous and very common problem with Jeep Commanders. (I wish I knew before I bought it.) How can Jeep get away with not recalling all of them? How can only certain years be eligible for recall? This is very unsafe. What will it take before Jeep takes action? A death? Im at a loss. I dont know what to do.
My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a piece of junk. It only has 70,000 miles. Over the last few years I have put all new brakes twice! All new tires, 2 radiators, complete computer panel that blew and almost killed my son and I. A new thermostat... etc! DO NOT BUY A Dodge! I drive 2 miles to work. Terrible car! Service charged me 900$ to replace the radiator.
I own a 2010 Jeep Liberty with the sky slider roof- reason I bought the car! It is broken & Jeep has stopped making parts to fix! Shame on Jeep for not supporting their product! I have contacted Jeep but they tell me to look in salvage yards- REALLY? I have searched for parts to no avail! My vehicle is 8 years old, low mileage & in great shape except for the main attraction- the sky slider! Therefore making the car worthlessness!
I buy Jeeps and have had four in my life. Its a fun car to drive and its sexy too. It keeps the cool in style look and sense cars are so expensive today costing more than the lower 80% of Americans even make enough money to pay to own. This one is a little better or easier to buy. One problem is the transmission on all four of my jeeps breaks down after the 3500 mile warranty expires and its a major fault in jeeps.
The retractable roof broke and will not close completely... Contacted the dealer and was told it would take a month to get the pieces... That month is now going on five... Was given a number by the dealership to call and put in a complaint. Now I have a case number and a woman who calls me every week telling me they are working on rectifying the problem. I was told today that they are unable to make the replacement pieces at this time because the mold for the piece was lost... So now they are in the process of trying to find a manufacturer to make the mold to make the piece... then make sure it is safe for the public. REALLY... I call BS. They need to take this car back and return my money. This cannot be legal. I am making car payments on a car I cannot drive safely... Do they not realize God forbid someone drives their car like this and gets into an accident and is ejected from the car and dies because of a faulty roof. Lawsuits up the butt... This is just ridiculous. I WILL NEVER EVER BUY ANOTHER JEEP EVER. This is such bad business on their part... and I will tell anyone who listens to me to never ever buy a Jee. They should be ashamed of themselves.
My husband and I have been lifelong Jeep owners, until now. We decided to upgrade our 2013 2 door Freedom Edition to a 2019 Mojito Wrangler 4 door Rubicon. We special ordered it exactly the way we wanted. Spent months researching and looking at Jeeps so that we would get the perfect car. We sold our 2013 outright about 2 weeks before ours was delivered. We waited almost a month for it to come into the dealer. Not ideal but ok it takes awhile to put a car together right? Dealer finally called us and we drove two hours to pick up our new toy. It was pouring when we got there which was disappointing, but now looking back that was a godsend. During inspection we found scratches all over interior panels, and spots on the doorsills where the paint was chipped down to bare metal. Could get over that.Then during the test drive the car pulled to the right, and had thunking noise upon breaking, along with huge dent in the steering wheel at the top right where you put your hand. (Were told it was a manufacturer defect.) But the final straw was when we pulled it in and found the Sky One roof leaking in the back and discovered the carpet in the back was soaked. Further inspection found that on the passenger side the Sky One roof was not smooth but wrinkled and had a piece of the frame/metal pushing up thru it. For an almost $60,000 vehicle this was not acceptable and we did not take delivery of what was supposed to be our dream Jeep. It was heartbreaking to us as we were so excited to get this car. Dealer tried to place an order for another car but it is no longer available to order. What????Now we are dealing with Jeep Cares. (Really should be called something else.) Two weeks of the runaround of someone will call you - no calls, we assigned a manager they will call - no call. You get the picture. Now finally after many hours on the phone someone finally called us. What we have been offered is talk to your dealer and have them place an order - well they cant. Then we can fix the car they have and you can have that one. Why in the world would I want a car with 8 miles on it that has to be taken apart and rebuilt to fix issues that should never have been there. This feels like they just want to pass off the problems to us; because lets be real here... there will be nothing but problems with a vehicle like this.We have searched other dealers nationwide and have not been able to find a Jeep dealer with the color and options that we wanted; they either have $5,000 more of options or are missing options that are important to us. Final piece is during the time this has all taken we have had two incentives from Jeep expire with no way of recouping the $1,500 for those offered either. At this point we are waiting for them to come up with something other than accepting a Jeep that is subpar. Overall not a great experience not anything that would make me want to do this ever again with Jeep.
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.
My wife and I have owned Jeeps since 1996. In 2009, I purchased a 2009 Jeep Patriot for her. The vehicle is a fine one with two exceptions: 1) It is difficult to hold on the highway when there are winds of 15 mph or more; 2) The road noise created by the tires on the highway makes it almost impossible to hear the radio.
Check engine light is a problem and after going to the dealership and paying 500+ to fix the problem, it still came on. I like the car overall but the remote start feature is deactivated when check engine light is on. The radio also doesnt have CD player and only plays sat radio or iPod/phone. The gas mileage isnt that great and could be better. Also, most of the repairs are very costly. Nevertheless, I like the look and color of the vehicle. It has heated seats and remote start which was what I was looking for in a vehicle. The sunroof is an added benefit as well.
At 41,000 my service light came on. Took to the dealership and was charged $803 to replace the $71 thermostat. Talked to customer service and they told me to submit my receipt and they would file a claim. We know of 2 other people who own the same vehicle and both had to have their thermostats replaced at similar mileage, so INDEFINITELY A KNOWN PROBLEM. After a 45 day wait they call and tell me that my claim is denied because I am out of warranty. Obviously I told them that from the get go, so why have me file a claim? Also, back door handle fell off. What a piece of junk! We bought this vehicle new. Weve always bought Hondas and other than oil changes, brakes and new tires weve never spent a penny on repairs. Live and learn. STAY AWAY FROM JEEP.
Bought it new from Lester Glenn, Toms River NJ, paid 42k. Was originally offered a year of free oil changes in writing, they never honored them - too much hassle so I just do it myself. Constantly receiving recall notices since 8 months after purchase and to this day (10/2016), Schedule with Cherry Hill Triplex to perform said recalls on several occasions - take off from work and then they tell me they dont have the parts and to keep calling them like its my responsibility?? This has happened twice so far.Third time they actually repaired the visor recalled due to possible fire damage. Tried to get leather dash fixed, scheduled a time, took a day off, got there and they said warranty guy was off today, eventually got there when he was in and he look at the dash issues bubbling - signs of peeling with around 20k miles on it, they said it wasnt covered and never even documented the visit. So now I have only 27k miles but exceeded the three year limit so Jeep Corporate says they would have covered it under warranty but not now, they offered a friendly, Well pay the labor. You pay towards the dash @ $800 or something. I spent like 12k extra for all the fancy leather & gadgets and it wont even last 4 years.
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.
I own a 2005 Jeep Liberty which I bought brand new in Dec 2005. This past weekend it broke down - luckily I wasnt driving on the freeway. I heard a clunk and a police officer was behind me and when I stopped to see what it was he said I heard the loud noise. And he then told me that I wouldnt be able to continue driving and it would have to be towed. So I had to wait for a tow for over 45 minutes and the tow person told me that it was a broken rear suspension control arm and he said that there was a recall on this for 2004 and 2005 Jeep Liberties.So I called Woodhouse in Blair and was informed that because my vehicle wasnt put together in the right state that my Vin# wasnt on the recall list. This is a bunch of B.S. I have purchased Three Jeeps. But I will never again purchase a Chrysler product. They have lost my business forever. If the part is defective it should go for all Jeep Libertys. Just because you dont live in the right state they wont cover it. Chrysler Corporation SUCKS!!! I Hope your corporation goes Bankrupt it will serve you right. And lets hope no one gets killed in an accident that is the cause of your company not wanting to fix something that has been recalled, but they wont fix it because the car wasnt put together in the correct State.
After the hitch recall was conducted I have lost capabilities of my vehicle due to the manufacturer (JEEP). I bought a 2006 Jeep Liberty CRD delivered by Jeep with a trailer hitch and wiring. The tow rating of 5000lbs was the only reason the jeep was purchased with the benefit of a diesel engine for better mpg. I was informed by mail a recall was necessary to prevent damage to the fuel tank and fire in case of an accident. When I asked the service manager at Ourisman Jeep in Clarksville, MD, I was told the N46 recall consisted of an inspection of the installed hitch and a possible replacement hitch if the original failed inspection. I was told there should be no other issues. When I got the Jeep back, I was told the hitch was replaced and I was good to go. While waiting on the Jeep, I read the paperwork which stated my vehicle did not come equipped for towing (it did come equipped for towing) and that I could not tow with the hitch that was now installed. I asked about this and was told by the service manager at Ourisman it was just legalese to cover their butt and not to worry, tow as before. I became concerned as I use the Jeep regularly to tow and have not used it since as I am concerned if the tow hitch Ourisman installed fails I will be held liable as Jeep says I cannot tow in the paperwork. I emailed jeep and received the following: Thank you for contacting the Jeep Customer Assistance Center. We regret to learn of your concerns regarding the ability to tow with this new hitch. We regret to inform you that we are unable to diagnose or advise if your vehicle is safe regarding if you can tow with this new trailer hitch that was installed. There are too many variables involved and a detailed inspection of your vehicle is required for proper diagnosis. If you choose to use the new hitch for towing, you are responsible for any damage it may or may not cause.Based on that I wrote back asking why I went from a vehicle that could tow to one that couldnt and why it wasnt mentioned previously. The response was: We reviewed your concerns further in regards to obtain further clarification on if you are able to tow with this new hitch. FCA US LLC and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have agreed on this repair action. The repair procedure set out by FCA US LLC meets these requirements that were set out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The trailer-hitch assemblies installed as part of this campaign are intended only to provide rear structural reinforcement. Hitch-balls were not to be installed and customers are not advised to operate their vehicles with exposed hitch-balls. We apologize this information does not assist you with your concerns; however, we must stand behind our decision to advise you not to tow with this hitch.I am unsure who else to actually contact as the manufacturer and the dealer have now basically stolen from me the only reason I own the vehicle. I also dont understand how they would replace a hitch when I told them I use it for towing and later say it wasnt their call. I did email the BBB, they should respond in 30 days. I contacted NHTSA and received this in response: Thank you for contacting the U.S. Department of Transportations Vehicle Safety Hotline Information Center. For recall inquiries on your specific vehicle, safety seat, or other equipment please contact the manufacturer. We hope that you find this information helpful. However, if you need additional information on our services please feel free to contact us at 1-888-327-4236.I started out just wanting the jeep back to where I can tow. But since Jeep refuses and is saying that it was approved by NHTSA to get lost or at least thats what the last email from Jeep seems to say, I dont want it anymore as I cant use it. Now I think based on the paperwork I likely cant even sell the jeep to anyone planning to tow as even though it was rated to tow it now has paperwork saying not to. And even had Jeep offered to buy it back and give credit toward buying another Jeep/Chrysler/Dodge I wont. I wont buy another Chrysler product after this. This has completely turned me off the Company, even though I have been a lifelong Mopar Enthusiast, having owned a 68 Roadrunner, 87 Ram and a 2002 Quad Cab Dakota that was one of my previous tow vehicles. So now I have to begin a search for another vehicle that meets the need the Liberty was filling so I can have a vehicle to tow with; the ideal being a small 4x4 with a tow capacity of at least 5000lbs. And find a way to sell or trade the Jeep as I cannot justify continuing making payments on a vehicle I cannot use due to the fast one pulled by Jeep.
We have an 2010 Jeep Liberty Limited with a Sky Slider Roof that from the time we bought it used has been nothing but trouble. We bought the jeep two and half years ago from a Chrysler dealer. It was warrantied and after a week and half of ownership we took it in and had the roof checked out. It would not slide open from the back and a made a clicking noise. After much complaints and phone calls the dealership had it repaired but it took at least 1.5 weeks for the repair of roof because they didnt have a person that knew how to fix the problem. The noise is so loud that you cant enjoy your radio or conversations. The dealership said they did the repair out of courtesy and that I would had to pay over $1500 for the repair. Now, the roof is broken again and will not close all the way!!! I have been looking to find someone who knows how to fix it but no one will touch them. These roofs should be on recall!!!
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!
I bought my jeep in August 2014. I first had problems with it September 26, 2014 with the transmission. The dealer fixed the issue and said things were fine. On November 8th, the lights came on and it wouldnt drive. Had to have it towed again. I stated I did not want this car. The dealership stated they talked to Chrysler and they would not do anything. On December 29, 2014, I was driving the engine and another light came on and the car hardly moved and would not go into reverse. The car is at the dealership and I am waiting to hear if Chrysler will now admit it is a lemon. The car appears to have problems every 2,000 to 2,500 each time. I am extremely disappointed and upset with Chrysler. I owned a Jeep Compass from 2011 to 2014 and had no problems.
I purchased my Jeep back at the end of August. Off and on, a “electronic stability control service” light would come on. I took it into the dealership and it was diagnosed as a vacuum leak. However, the part they needed was backordered and they didn’t know when they would get it. Although still running and driveable, they could not release it back to me for safety. Since it was under warranty, I was able to get a rental, but only for five days. Only could customer care extend that time period. I waited it out as long as possible driving the wife’s car until it became an issue. I called customer care to make sure I could get the extension and was told a case manager would call me back. 3 weeks later and numerous phone calls, still not a word from customer care. Returned the rental and had to pay the majority out of pocket. Still no Jeep and customer care is silent. Now stuck with a rental car bill for a month old vehicle under warranty with 1,000 miles. I call B/S on that one. I’m pretty sure I’ll be trading in my Jeep if I ever see it again. These guys have terrible customer service and done paying for it.
I bought my first 2014 Jeep Overland and within 3 years my Jeep would just die while driving. Took the vehicle in and they could never figure out what was wrong. I drove it for a couple more months and the same thing would happen that I eventually was so scared to drive my vehicle, more so with my grandkids in the car that I decided to trade it in for another Jeep. I really like the look and feel of the Jeep that I just thought I had a lemon and would buy a new one. So I buy a brand new 2017 Jeep Summit. Has 2000 miles on it and now this one starts to shift gears when it is coasting or coming to a complete stop. I now have been told I need a new transmission in my Jeep. Just so frustrating and really sad that I now have gone through 2 brand new vehicles with Jeep! My dealer has been very reasonable with helping me. I know it is not their fault but what is happening to the Jeep. Wish I would have learned the first time!!
I have a 2006 Liberty Limited which I factory ordered fully loaded and have had continual problems with the power windows. In the first 2 months my drivers door window would not go up straight. I went to the dealership and had it repaired. Within a month it happened again. I had it repaired again. The entire mechanism was replaced and again it did the same thing. In the first 13 months I only put on 4700 kms so as you can see I never drove it much.At this time we moved from Ontario to Alberta and a wonderful dealership in Alberta repaired it but I found out at this time that Chrysler came up with some new mechanism system to run the window. The old systems never quit or had these problems but Chrysler had to reinvent the wheel. Over time I have had to get the driver side window repaired 5 times. Then all of a sudden one day the passenger side window just fell down. Had to have it repaired. Then I received a letter from Chrysler that they were extending the warranty on all window repairs to 7 years. Should tell you that there is a real problem if they have to extend the warranty. I also paid for extended warranty and that was a waste of money.Then all of a sudden one New Years Eve the passenger side rear window fell down. Again went to a dealership and they did get warranty on it. Now the extended warranty was up on June 15, 2013. On July 1st 2013 the driver side rear window fell down and would not operate. This was the only window that hadnt been repaired yet. I went to a Chrysler dealership that I had never been to and they were refused warranty by Chrysler Canada. Now this dealership (Southtown Chrysler - Edmonton) who I never bought the vehicle from or ever been there before was so nice to me that they offered to not charge me labor if I paid for the part. This was fantastic service from the dealership and Chrysler doesnt deserve to have this quality of dealership. The dealership cared but Chrysler didnt.Now why should the dealership be out for Chryslers poor design. I have since at least done other repair business with them but I will never give Chrysler business again. I contacted Chrysler 2 times about this issue. The first time they responded by telling me tough luck as the warranty was up. I could see if it was a year after but this happened 2 weeks after the warranty was up. I hardly use this vehicle and if had have happened 15 days earlier they would have repaired it. I sent them another email in response to their answer and in 4 months they havent even had the courtesy to respond. I have decided to file this complaint so other people will know about their poor customer care.I hope other people listen and dont waste your money on their products or any of their extended warranty products as they also have a pile of loopholes and arent worth the money.
I have a 2009 Jeep Liberty, 2 weeks after I drove it off the lot I noticed that the heater was not working. Took it in and the heater core had blown. Since I had this Jeep it has blown 4 times!!! The dealership (Suncoast located in Florida) and manufacturer will not help with the repairs. How can the same thing malfunction 4 times? How could they not help with the repairs of a part that has malfunctioned 4 times? I was sold a lemon! And will never purchase another Jeep again.
Jeep Commander 2007 Stalling Problem for 4 Years: The Commander will start stalling 1st time after 30,000 work is completed. It will stall once every two weeks or so and escalate to several times a day. When I take it in for service, unless they can duplicate the issue, they make us take it back. So, we are, basically, driving it until it will stall daily. We have nearly (my wife and my daughter) been in two accidents due to the stalling, with cars coming at us in excess of 60 miles per hour. Eventually, we will get to the point that it will stall and all the lights will cut off and it will turn back on while driving on the highway at 55 miles per hour. We have filed 2 suits with Chrysler ** and **. They are this point putting the pressure on our service company, Prince Frederick, MD Jeep, and they have done everything they can. Chrysler is acting as if they have never heard of my situation and the danger they are putting my family in. However, I can find investigations on my year and model on Consumer Affairs and USDT Investigation EA07-007 and PE07-009 as well as a ConsumerAffairs.com report dated 5/01/07 pertaining to this matter. We are so worried as what to do. I can not drive with my daughter and my husband drives all the way, too, into DC from Dunkirk, MD and I worry about his safety. I just want a safe vehicle for my family and they use us as there guinea pigs to drive until it is in a bad state and very frightening. We have lots of hills and people drive very fast in this area which makes it more frightening to stall. My daughter is too afraid to get in the Jeep and she cried last time we nearly were hit on our way to take her to school. Please help us. We dont want to trade it in so another family could be hurt and be in this situation or a teenager!
Ive now owned five Jeeps. Two Grand Cherokees and three Wranglers (two JK models and one JL model). While Ive had a hiccup or two, Jeep has been great about making things right and the vehicles have been reliable. The reliability and versatility have kept me a loyal Jeep customer. Recently, and unfortunately, we were the victims of an F-250 Super Duty red light running hit-and-run driver that hit us and ran totaling the vehicle with only 4980 miles. Me, my wife, daughter, and son, all walked away the kids with zero injuries and my wife and I with minimal airbag related injuries. To say I am thankful is an understatement. Im so bummed that I lost so much of what I invested in my Jeep and am having trouble finding a replacement, but at the end of the day, we all walked away from a collision that had we been in a smaller vehicle, there would have likely been severe injuries or even death. Thank you Jeep!
Intermittent power and performance issues @30000 kms. Disinterest from dealership because fault not present when vehicle presented and onboard computer not programmed to store faults. Had to put up with problem till local mechanic discovered split in turbo hose. Microprocessor fault resulting in no headlights, no wiper/washers, no turn indicators. Dealer offered appointment to investigate in 3 weeks. No diagnostic assistance offered to local mechanic. 140000kms lower control arm ball joints on front suspension dangerously worn. Quoted $1400 plus labor to rectify. I have owned many vehicles and never had ball joints fail at this mileage.
I have a 2007 Jeep Commander. I went to drive it today, and again, it would not start. The car has had its battery replaced already, and this has happened a couple of times since Ive owned it. I have had many electrical quirks such as lights blinking and going off. It also has completely turned off on the turnpike on a hill. There was no power in the vehicle, and the left lane traffic is extremely dangerous. The jeep does frequently lurch forward when at a stop, when the engine is still running. I keep looking for recalls, and found none, but others I know with Commanders have had the same issues. How many complaints, before they are made to fix the problems at their cost, not mine?
First of all, I want to say that up until this last purchase, I have been a loyal Chrysler customer since the 60s and have purchased about 10 of their vehicles including this 2011 Jeep. My wife and I traded our 2001 Durango 4x4 for the Jeep to be able to continue occasionally exploring back country areas in the Carolinas and Tennessee with the option of a removable soft top. Everybody knows that Jeeps are supposed to be Trail Rated, yet they sell a vehicle that if used off road (just gravel roads) that it will burn up the transmission due to excessive fluid heat. If we did extreme off-roading (mud bogging or rock climbing) like you see Jeeps doing on TV, I might accept having to install additional equipment. Im told by Jeep Customer Service that if I want to use my vehicle this way, I have to pay for installation of an additional transmission cooler. Why didnt the Engineers incorporate that into the vehicle in the first place? I understand they reconfigured the standard cooler into the A/C condenser vs. the Radiator. Did they Trail Test it? Are they willing to lose loyal customers over a couple hundred dollar part? They do install the factory cooler if you get the tow package, but I didnt plan to tow anything with my Jeep so it didnt concern me that the one I bought wasnt equipped with this package. Since Ive dealt with this particular dealership for over 20 years, Ive called and asked for the owner to respond by phone to see if he is more honorable than Chrysler.
Worst buying experience I have ever had. Purchased a new 2017 Jeep Wrangler in April 2017 and it had been in the shop for the same problem. Jeep customer service keep promising they would take care of the matter. To call them when I was at the service department. I did and all I did was waste my time. They did nothing. I was awarded a buyback/repurchase lemon law. Customer service has been no help to me either and 2 months later Im still awaiting for this to be settled. They do not stand behind their product and their customer service is lacking.
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.
Bought a 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon in July of 2021 for $63,000. Within a few months rust started to form on top of the rear bumper around the mounting bolts and streaming a rust stain around the rear steel bumper. The dealer declined repairs so I contacted Jeep customer service and opened a case and claim. They also denied the claim stating the rust was from outside influence whatever that means. I am furious that they would let a simple repair like this leave a customer furious and hating the car because of this. There are several others online with similar issues and a class action suit has been launched. My theory is it shouldnt have to come to this when paying a TON of $ for this car. I am still willing to speak to Jeep about coming to an amicable outcome.
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.
Jeep Compass is good on gas. I am glad I picked this type of car. It is reasonably priced for an SUV. It has great stereo and the speakers work well. I like the Bluetooth that came with it. Its nice to be hands free. Moreover, the air conditioning works great. The Compass is great, but I wish it had more leg room and reverse camera. It would be a great safety feature. Also, Id like it if the front window and side front windows had a bit more tint.
I am 65 years old, and purchased a 2007 Jeep Liberty on June 12, 2014. I had no idea of the fuel tank installed behind the rear axle. Prior to purchase, I had done a CarFax report that revealed no recalls. Shortly thereafter I received a notice of recall on the trailer hitch and waited 9 months for the replacement hitch to be available and had it replaced at the Chrysler dealership. No one ever told me about the gas tank mounting behind the rear axle and that 75 people had been burnt to death in rear collisions. Now I am stuck with a vehicle I still owe $8000 on and no one wants to buy. It is sad that our National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Chrysler dont care about our safety and that a band aid of a trailer hitch could protect lives from a fuel tank explosion in a rear end collision over 40 mph.
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.
I have a 2016 Jeep Patriot that Ive owned for not even 2 years. On July 31st the engine blew up on me and I have contacted Jeep and was told even though my Jeep is barely over the warranty coverage....Im out $4000 on a new engine!!!! Im a disabled unemployed Iraq war veteran, but hey apparently Jeep doesnt care about the soldiers and veterans to even remotely make it right or do anything to help.... I shouldnt have to foot this bill for a new engine in such a new vehicle.... Absolutely garbage customer service and helpfulness in a persons time of need.... Dont waste your time with a vehicle that will blow up not even before its next oil change after the warranty expires.... Get you a vehicle with 100k mile warranty and actually be covered....
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.
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 was pulling out of a parking lot onto a busy highway, when my 2008 Jeep Wrangler started honking and the lights started flashing. It stalled for a few seconds, then I started driving again. I made it 1/2 block to the stop lights, at which time, it did it again and stalled completely. I was able to coast through the stop light and turn onto a side street, where it stopped in a very unsafe area. I immediately called for help and couldnt even get to make my hazards go on. We have since had it towed to a dealership, and we are waiting to see what they come up with. 1 month ago, the stabilizer bar went, causing us to be thrown into oncoming traffic over in Detroit. We had that fixed (quite a cost) and found out this is also a common issue with these jeeps. From reading on the internet, both these things are common problems, but Jeep will not own up to these things. These trucks are horrible and unsafe! We bought ours new, and we have never gone 4x4ing or abused it in any way! We still owe 2 years of payments on this piece of junk, and we are afraid to drive it, because it is a death trap!
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.
Finance manager screwed up our lease so bad that he had to drive to Rockford to have us re-sign a new lease. He processed the original and didn’t send in the new one. I had been making payments on the account number I received and not the one he sent in. In the end, we ended up with 5 inquiries on our credit score, a new alias as he misspelled my last name, dealing with proving my payments with bank statements, a harassing phone call from the dealership wanting payment over the phone, a repossession notice/Chrysler saying we were current, and a GM that wouldn’t return our calls. Luckily, Chrysler Finance has been the only one that has been helpful and straightened things out for us.
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.
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!
While out of town on a road trip, my car stalled on the interstate and cut completely off. The inside lights would not work and the dashboard lights began to flicker. It restarted and I was able to pull over at a gas station. Once stopped, a burnt smell and smoke began to come from the gearshift inside the vehicle. I was coming back from out of town and was 2 hours away from home. I was completely stranded with my family and was fortunate enough that the event we were at out of town had a charted bus and I was able to contact them and give us a ride home. Now, my car is 2 hours away from home and I am going to have to pay to get it towed to a dealership. This is completely and utterly dangerous! I looked up my symptoms and I have seen hundreds of complaints of the exact same things happening but no resolution from Chrysler or the dealerships. Consumers should not have to be responsible for manufacture’s defaults. At this point with the hundreds of complaints about the same issue, it is a default!
I own a 2009 Jeep Patriot and my transmission went out. Since I bought it new and it came with a lifetime powertrain warranty, which includes the transmission, I didnt think getting it repaired would be a problem. Little did I know that in order for the warranty to remain effective, you must have the transmission inspected within the first 5 years of ownership. That little fact was never revealed to me even though I have had all required maintenance performed by the dealership. Has anyone else had this problem and what was down to resolve it short of paying for the repair - which is going to run $4,200.
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.
I purchased a 2007 Jeep Liberty and I found I had bought a window monster. Not only did the regulator break, but you had to put a new window to go with it. I had six windows replaced, and two of them were the new model.I had 3 weeks left on my warranties when the last one happened. I argued with the service writer and he gave me a number to call. I called and argued with them and then I went to the website and sent in multiple complaints.Well, Jeep responded and sent me an extension, for the windows and regulators only, for ten years and it will go with the vehicle. So, go get them. They will work with you if you yell loud enough. I hope this helps the rest of the window droppers.
I have had nothing but issues since I leased my Jeep Renegade in 2016. The most recent issues required for a part to be replaced, that was already replaced a year ago; as well as a second new replacement of a different part. I took the car back and forth 6 times in one month and the car had less than 30,000 miles on it. I contacted Jeep asking them to terminate my lease (10 months remaining) and they refused because it didnt meet the Lemon Law for the State of Massachusetts. They rather have me in an unsafe and unreliable car than do what is right for the customer and try to keep a Brand loyal customer. I will never drive a Jeep ever again. I would NEVER recommend Jeep to any friends or family.
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.
I bought my 2004 Jeep Liberty almost 2 years ago. Aside from the constant light show on the dash, I loved the car! I started losing power when accelerating, at first occasionally but becoming more frequent over a month. I took it to my regular mechanic a couple of times but they couldnt find the problem. I ended up losing power completely and had it towed to Jeep dealership. First, I was told the water pump was loose and shook things up. I needed a new one. They also did an injector service(?). Tech drove it thinking it was fixed but he suddenly realized the car was a hazard when it all but stopped on the highway. We are now @ $800 and climbing! A few hours later, he discovers a problem with a cylinder head. Heres the catch. They told me it was cracked and needed replaced but told my extended warranty co. it was warped. So when talking to warranty co., they would say warped but dealership would say cracked when talking to them! Who do I believe, the warranty co. or the supposedly trained tech that knows these things? Of course I believe the tech and tell them it needs done whether the warranty covers it or not. Aside from the fact that the service manager lied to me several times stating he was on the phone constantly with warranty co., he lied when telling me it was cracked! Warranty wont pay stating it was not a necessary replacement! It WAS warped and could have been machined down at a much lower cost! So after my Liberty being at dealership for 3 weeks (which I still cant figure out), I get to pick it up tomorrow! At last count, the total was almost $3400! That doesnt include the rental I needed! Always had VWs, then went to Subarus. With my business, I need 4 WD, though, which is why I went to Jeep. Never again! Cant trust the company and cant count on the cars!
Would not stand behind warranty. The drivers side mirror broke when it would not fold as designed. Dealership would not replace. Cost me $487. Called FCA line and all they do is back the dealer so whats the point? Also Jay the caseworker was unprofessional and hung up on me.
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 bought my 2017 Jeep Compass brand new, the 8th month in I was driving on a busy street when my oil sensor went off and caused my car to slow to a stop and my steering wheel to stiffen. Mind you, the oil light went off 3 days prior and Jeeps response when I took it in? “It burns oil every 3k miles, this is normal according to their standards and that’s just a sensor”. Flash forward to a radio repair, back up camera repairs (needs to be replaced again) and multiple oil issues and it has now been declared a lemon. To say the process even with an attorney has been simple would be a lie. It has been a total nightmare to get Chrysler to take back THEIR defective vehicle. If you are looking for a car for yourself or family I would highly suggest doing your research and never, ever buy a Jeep/Chrysler vehicle. If I could rate 0 stars I would have.
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.
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.
Transmission keeps shifting into neutral. Check engine light goes on. I have to pull over and restart to get the Jeep to have power again. There is something wrong with the Trans, shifts very hard not smooth at all. Who designed this piece? Did damage to the rear end and I think it was the trans shifting so hard that it broke things in the diff. They had to rip it all apart but did comp the rear end. The dealership said everything was fixed. I had to pay for the trans to be serviced 20K miles early and pay for the car rental. I feel like they should have comped everything, their parts are failing. Then parts (Flood Lights) were stolen off my Jeep while getting serviced, what Next? The next day after getting the vehicle back the Check engine light came back on and the car shifted into neutral while on the freeway. This has been happening since about 35K miles, now at 40K. This is a dangerous situation and someone is going to die driving these vehicles with these trans shifting out of gear. Very sad for their top of the line jeeps loaded. I love the look of these vehicles but the auto transmission sucks! I wish I would have bought a manual. Please Recall the Trans before you hurt someone!
I bought my Jeep Patriot new off the lot. In fact I bought one that wasnt even on the lot. They had to ship it in from up country. I fell in love with the look and feel of it as soon I saw it. Ive put 90,000 km. on it which is a little more than normal and I havent had one bad experience with it yet. As long as you dont count going to the dealership for maintenance. But I solved that too. I just do it myself now. I obviously cant do everything myself but I do the majority. Ive always wanted a Jeep, but could never afford the $35k price tag. That is until they made the Patriot. Its still the same old Jeep style and attitude but with a little more road etiquette behind it. I know I wouldnt be taking it rock crawling, but since Ive modified to its max, I can go just about anywhere. Through rivers, anywhere you take your F-150, Nissan Xterra, Dodge Tacoma, Ill be right there beside you. Im 110% satisfied with my Jeep, and I wouldnt trade it now for anything.
When I purchased my commander I started having problems with it the next day and it was one thing after another. When I was driving down the highway all the lights on the dashboard were flashing on and off and stalling. Took it to dealer. They replaced the wiring harness, didnt fix it. Took it there again for the same problem. This time I had 10 top Jeep techs take the whole inside of my Jeep out to expose the wires. They went wire by wire and there is a control module in the drivers side door and once they replaced that it never happened again. Now I have only had this Jeep for 2 years and I have had the transmission replaced, wiring harness, front control module, power steering pump, ignition switch, front differential, and I cant keep brakes or rotors on it to save the life of me. The problem with all of the Jeeps is everything is computerized and the computers they put in them are CRAP. I will never ever buy another Jeep again.
I bought a new 2018 Jeep Renegade. At three months/4,200 miles it kept stalling out. I called the dealership for suggestions. They stated that I needed to check my oil level. I was very confused by that being a new vehicle. It was over 5 quarts low!! No check engine or oil lights ever came on at any time! How is that possible?! How long have I been driving without oil in my engine? After some online research, I am seeing this has been a big issue with this model with no recalls. NOT ACCEPTABLE!! Buyers beware!!!
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 own a 2006 Jeep Liberty that I purchased new. I had several problems with the window regulators breaking and the windows falling down or failing to roll back up. The first few times these were replaced under warranty. After my warranty expired, my back two windows broke and fell down. I called to find out what this would cost and was told about $400 per window. I did not have nearly $900 to shell out to have this fixed when there is an obvious problem with these windows in this model year. Last year, I found out Jeep decided to extend the warranty on these windows for model years 2006-2007 for 7 years. I called my dealer to find out about this warranty and was asked for my Vin number, they ran the number and told me my car did not qualify as it was past the cut off month - mine built in March 06 and they said it was for anything after May 06 and later. The letter says nothing about this! They said I could have them fixed and pay for it and then try to get my money back from Chrysler Jeep. I am a single mother and dont have that kind of money to get these fixed for a problem that Jeep is very aware of! This is very unsafe as your car can easily be broken into if the window starts to fall. All someone has to do is push down, reach in and open the car. I currently have wedges stuck in between the glass and door to try and keep these up. It is ridiculous. I cant use my windows and I will never be able to sell this car or trade it in with this problem not fixed. The cost is too expensive that no one else will want to pay to have it done. I am stuck with this car that was poorly designed that Jeep is very aware of and now will do nothing about it.
This vehicle is a great medium size SUV. Bought to pull behind an RV. It served that purpose and as a great car for a couple. Very versatile and reliable. No problems and love the diagnostic monthly report.
Let it be known that the life of an importer of Jeep Liberty CRDs to Canada is humiliated into a great deal of time wasting trouble. Dealers in my city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada dont like importers. They call us “curbers.” A bad word. The Chrysler service departments dont like the Liberty CRD. The latest problem is when I must go to my local dealer to get the daytime running lights activated. DRLs are mandatory to satisfy the Canadian Auto Registrar.Dealers charge $90 for the Canadian module and they charge $90 to activate the module, which looks like a relay that goes into the left hand side dash fuse box. The US module plugs right in beside the Canadian one and when the programming is finished you unplug the US relay module. (It buzzes if you leave it in). Today the dealer took my CRD into their shop. I signed the waiver and in a half hour I get a call that they cannot get their computer to get into the Liberty’s computer. This means no DRL and no to any updates. I got back into my CRD and noticed the air bag light was on. I tried plugging the US module back in and also tried disconnecting the battery for reset.Nothing works. Dodge City service department Saskatoon, SK is stating no responsibility and will not hook their computer up to my ECU unless I agree to at least $2,000 minimum work order. The Jeep CRD and a Canadian importer are victims.
To start, my father retired from Chrysler and we have always had Chrysler products. We have owned four or five jeeps, plus other Chrysler cars. My son and son-in-law both have Dodge Ram pickup trucks, so Chrysler is in our blood. Until now! I will never buy Chrysler. Years ago, like 45 years, Chrysler was known for not starting in rainy weather. Is this what you are going back to?We bought a new 2009 Jeep Liberty and not too long after we bought it, they had to replace the whole transmission. We have experienced terrible gas mileage of no more than 14 mpg, city or highway. That is awful. We would have gotten rid of it except we four down tow it and have the tow bar installed on it. We also have a brake buddy for it.Lately the key lock has not been working right, slow, and we thought it was needing a new battery. Then one morning, we went to leave in the car and all the dash lights came on and wipers wouldnt turn off. Then the car locked in park. We tried to figure it out for days and the dash finally said no bus. You cant find out what that means anywhere. We finally got it out of park and drove it to the dealership. Guess what, dash board cluster was bad and to the tune of $608.00. This Jeep is only 1700 miles over warranty. We also have a 15-year-old Chev truck with 150,000 miles and never had the problems this Jeep has had, plus it gets way better gas mileage. The dealership Cueter Chrysler is the best I have ever worked with and their service is second to none. Too bad they dont have good vehicles to work on.I think Chrysler should at least pay the bill on this because it should have never gone bad in the first place. I feel I have a lemon, and being disabled and retired, I should not have to worry about this happening on a pretty new vehicle. Please let me know if you are willing to do anything for us, or whether or not I should carry on with this complaint.
I have a 2008 Jeep Commander, most recently while at the stop light the engine shut off.... This is a scary situation to be in especially when young children are in the vehicle. I have experience many, if not all of the problems other consumers have complained about; however, by far this is the worst. How Do I fixed it? Since the service people have no clue?
To Whom It May Concern, I’m writing this letter to voice our frustrations with the Jeep brand, and express our concerns for other owners of the 2013-present day Jeep Cherokee. In July of 2017, my now fiancé purchased a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk 4x4 from Ramsey Motors in Riverside, MO. The vehicle at the time had roughly 24, ** miles, it was a one owner vehicle originally purchased new from Gladstone DCJ & R in 2015.On approximately June 18th-19th, the car would not start for my fiancé to make her commute to work. She found a ride, and I had MOPAR roadside assistance tow the vehicle to Stateline CDJ&R of Kansas City for diagnosis. On June 21th, a representative of Stateline called to tell me a PRNDL switch was the root of our issue and quoted me to replace. I protested, believing the issue to be caused by a failing alternator, however being ”highly qualified technicians” I agreed, and Stateline followed through with the service. We picked the car up from Stateline on 6/29/18.The morning on 6/30/18 (yes the next day!) the car failed to start at a gas station in Pittsburg, KS, I instructed my fiancé to take the vehicle to Jay Hatfield DCJ&R in Frontenac, KS. A diagnosis by the service tech that day suggested… a failing alternator! Jay Hatfield apologized for the Stateline’s mistake, quoted me to repair, and promised the car returned to us by the end of the following week.The next few days were spent communicating with and agreeing to a 50% refund of our service fees done by Stateline, we picked the vehicle back up from Jay Hatfield on 7/6/18, I replaced the battery as a precaution the next day. 19 days, 2 dealerships, over $1,500.00 out of pocket, we finally had our vehicle back and felt comfortable with it again. How wrong was I!In early September, the vehicle failed to start on several occasions. Being that Jay Hatfield last had their hands on it, and frankly I found them to be honest and straightforward gentlemen, we made the 100 mile trip back to Jay Hatfield with the vehicle for a 2nd diagnosis. Jay Hatfield kept the vehicle for about 4 days, repeatedly stated to me the vehicle started each time they tried, and returned it to me. I felt like the boy who cried wolf! Are these service departs downright over and done with me? We’re not crazy, the vehicle is malfunctioning, we don’t drive 100 miles for a service appointment for fun & games.We made it through the next 30 days or so without an issue, until the morning of 10/10/18. While leaving a doctor’s appointment and going to work, the car died on my fiancé in traffic. A complete loss of power to the vehicle, no dash lights, no acceleration, nothing. The vehicle was pushed out of traffic, eventually regained power on its own, and driven home where now it sits dead in the driveway. Emergency lights are nice to have when a vehicle is stalled in traffic, my fiancé was not afforded this luxury!This is the final straw, it is clear as day that Chrysler/Jeep builds an inferior product, and maintains inferior means of training technicians to diagnose the very vehicles they sell to the public. The vehicle is nothing more than a $32,000 lawn ornament. Bringing me to the purpose of this letter, as stated above, we are collectively through with CDJ&R vehicles we want nothing to do with this Jeep Cherokee. I am writing with hope that somebody of purpose takes notice, and chooses to take the extra steps to address a customer’s complaint even when their technician is stumped. It is clear there is a deep electrical issue with these vehicles that needs to be investigated. A stalling vehicle in traffic, and subsequently pushing it out of traffic in the rain is a terrifying, extremely unsafe, and completely avoidable situation. I urge you all to take this into consideration when the inevitable “next one” arrives on your doorstep, hopefully that situation turns out better for the customer. If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this topic further, I can be reached via email or on my cell @ **. Thank you for your time.
I purchased a 2014 Jeep Patriot new in July of 2014. In August I had to take it back in because the hood was lifting up and looked as if it were going to come off at freeway speeds. The windshield wiper smart switch also quit working. I was told that the hinges on the hood werent very secure by design at the dealer but they replaced them anyway and it still wobbles going down the freeway and they replaced the smart switch. On November 21st I took it in again because there was a grinding noise coming from the front end. The dealer informed me that I had a defective transmission and they had to order one. On November 24th I took it back to have the new transmission put in and was told that it would be done on the 25th. When I called on the 25th they told me that the mechanic had stripped out the threads on a mounting bolt and had to put a heli-coil in it and it wouldnt be done until the 26th. I called on the 26th and they told me that one of the front drive axles was also defective and they had to order one. They were closed for Thanksgiving on the 27th so I called on the 28th and was told that the part was not in yet. It is now December 2nd and I still do not have a vehicle which I need to do my job so I have not been able to work for over a week!
2006 Jeep Commander - Seat belts are getting locked and you cannot retract them. Afraid something might happened in the event of an accident with the seat belts. Im unable to use the passenger and one of the third row seats. They are locked.
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?
I purchase this 2009 Jeep a year and half ago. I have had nothing but problems with it. I had to replace the brakes when the dealer claims they were just replaced and cant forget the rotors, struts in the front, alternator. I went to Virginia on vacation and 50 miles outside of Richmond, I had no power in the Jeep. The Jeep was still running but when you push on the gas, nothing happens. We stood on the side of the road for an hour to let the Jeep cool down and the Jeep started up with no problem. I was going to the Cape and the Jeep stalled again. No lights came on. When we turn on the A/C, the Jeep stopped moving and we had no power at all. I took the Jeep back to Harr Ford and they claim that they couldnt find anything wrong and there wasnt anything wrong with the Jeep. I ask them,then, Why does this Jeep keep losing power? No one had an answer.To Be Continued... going to another garage.
In 2010, I purchased a used 2007 Jeep Liberty Sport through a dealership. Within the first month after purchase, a mechanism within the front drivers side door broke causing the window to slip inside the door and become unusable. The dealership repaired the part free of charge as the vehicle was new to me. In 2012, the same mechanism broke again. This time, I was told by the dealership that this is a common problem but I was forced to pay for the repair as Jeep has not yet recalled the mechanism.Yesterday, December 21, 2013, the mechanism broke again this time inside the passengers front side door. I have called the dealership to schedule the repair but currently my window is being held up with duct tape. I do not think I should have to pay for the repair as this is an ongoing issue and obviously the cause of a defective part. Jeep should recall the component and/or develop a mechanism that does not break so easily. I have already filed a complaint with the NHTSA and Jeep headquarters.
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 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 have had to replace three of the four window regulators and the fourth also needs replacing at my own cost.
Im experiencing stalling, shuddering and shaking. I was told by a Jeep dealer I need an Electronic throttle control body. Of course they whipped out the cost but not the solution. They let me leave with the car like that. The next day I received a lightning bolt warning signal and the car stalled in traffic jerked forward and continued moving slowing in ongoing traffic. This is a safety issue and I advise other owners with these problems to report them.
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.
My 2006 Jeep Commander is nice and big with 3rd row seat. Great for my big family. Has enough room for everyone to have drinks. I like that my daughter can charge her phone in the 3rd row seat. Leg space for everyone is also good. Overall a very good buy and I am very pleased with it. It has everything I was looking for. If I ever have to buy another car I will be sure to get another Jeep Commander.
My brand new Jeep Renegade has a loud whistle noise coming from window... it is louder than the radio. I asked dealership in Brooksville FL 3 times to fix it. They keep the car all day and at 5 pm they tell me they could not fix it. Remember that I take the day off work because they do not allow me to have a rental. Really bad customer service. Dont ever buy a Jeep.
Bought a new JL Rubicon from the dealership. 4 days later the handle falls off. Took to dealership. Waited an hour for them to tell me they needed to order parts. Next day go back and they have wrong parts again. Of course after another hour wait. They couldnt even tell me when the parts will be in stock. Just that its a new model so could take some time.
2015 Jeep - The transmission that whines when I pull off and stop. Understand the Jeep have 9 gears.
Wife liked the looks of this jeep so I bought it for her. First Chrysler product and last I buy. I never thought I had to inspect inch by inch before leaving dealership. Both front seat backings were damaged or with defects. Dealer simply says, it is under warranty. Okay, no problem. While driving back home to other Elko, Nevada, wife notices passenger visor mirror is shattered. Dealer says it is under warranty. One week later, wife experiences all warning lights on cluster flashing and speedometer blacked out and inoperable! We call dealer extremely upset and they say it is a recall that they just forgot to tell us! But its under warranty...not one apology! I could not convince wife into purchasing another foreign vehicle then but after this experience, Chrysler products will not even be considered! Thank you.
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.
Vehicle Check Engine Light comes on and Vehicle loses power. This occurred on a Highway at 65mph, the CEL came on while on cruise control. At that moment the vehicle decelerated from 65mph to about 40mph with no notice. This was an unsafe condition for all occupants of the vehicle including a 16 month baby. The vehicle was almost struck by an Semi truck from behind, who had to lock its wheels to avoid a collision. This will be the 10th time the CEL was been illuminate, but this was the first time for an incident of this manner. The manufacture and dealership seems uncaring of the event and process to make the vehicle safe.
We have a 2008 Jeep Patriot and it was purchased new. Within the first year, our sunroof started leaking. We took the car to the dealership three to four times before they finally replaced the seal on it. They kept saying they were bugs or leaves in the tracks. It wasnt until I threatened to get a lawyer that they replaced the seal. Our liner has spots on it from the water damage and the mechanics hands. We have now owned our car for three and a half years. It has 46,000 miles. This last month, it has started leaking again!We noticed water on the passenger side flooring (a puddle) and could not find water anywhere else. After looking online, I thought it was possibly a clogged hose from the defrost. We took the car to a mechanic who has confirmed that it would not be a problem and suggested that we go to a body repair specialist to find where the leak is coming from. After looking at the car and the large puddle in our car, it looks like it is coming from somewhere around the rear window. I have called Jeep and the assigned case manager will not commit to fixing it. They want us to pay the dealership to look at it and then they may possibly allow us to have a copay to repair this. How can they get by with this? It appears that this is a common problem. We feel that our car is ruined! You can hear water under the floor! Help!
I had rented a Jeep compass 12/09/16 and that day I had a roll over accident. I drive professionally and that day I drove at a safe speed for the road conditions. Speed at about fifteen to twenty mph before applying the brake. It had snowed and there was ice conditions. I attempted to stop at a stop sign on a paved road base when the car began to shut down (clicking noises) but the car seemed to pick up momentum. As the car ran through the stop area. The road changed from paved base to a dirt road base. I continued to apply the brake. As the car came upon the dirt road I was hoping the dirt road would provide grab but the momentum continued. The car slid from about twenty feet when applying the brake before the stop sign plus across about a twenty-foot dirt road base slipping for a total of about forty feet. As I viewed the ditch (luckily no water in it) I was headed for, with a ten foot drop, I thought I did all that I could and prepared for the hurt that I and the car will have. And now, two days later, I use the term terminator. I felt the car had its on will. Applying the brake did nothing. I hope this vehicle is recalled because I could of easily not have been viable now.
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 have 2018 a Jeep Cherokee Latitude. Jeep kept cutting off sometimes when I would drive it. When oil gets low motor will shut off. It would stall when making turns. I looked for leaks and didnt find any leaks. I noticed the jeep burns at least 2-3 quarts of oil every 2,000 to 3,000 miles. I called Dealer and Chrysler Corp. They said the same thing. Now I have to fill up with oil between oil changes. Sad, This Jeep burns oil like a old car.
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 Jeep Liberty 2005 all of a sudden would not start. My husband, who is a mechanic, researched the problem and tried to buy the part from our local dealer. We were told that the part was not serviceable and we would have to buy a re-manufactured steering column for $800.00 + core charge. Catch was that over 800 people were ahead of us on a waiting list. We researched online and, thanks to my husband, found the part needed. It was an ignition actuator pin that was under $40.00. It solved the problem. $800.00 vs $40.00, not a question. For others out there, the part number is 924-704.
The dealer was called and he told us that we were 129th on the list for a speaker transformer. The right side of the vehicle has no sound. After inspection we were told that the speaker needed a transformer. I called a dealer in Florida when the date the transformer was supposed to arrive here came and went. We were supposed to have it by January 24. After speaking to Florida I was told that they didnt know if any were going to be coming in because they didn’t have a supplier. So they sell you dead equipment and they cant replace it. We have so much trouble with this Jeep. The motor has been replaced, plus the transmission, the heater blower, the seat heater and the list goes on and on.
Hello, our beautiful Jeep Liberty with 57,500 miles has a broken spring loaded draw curtain to cover the luggage area. It has completely quit retracting and seems to be coming apart. I am the only person to handle this and Im not rough on it. I need it working to keep my golf clubs out of sight and now cannot do it. The great dealer here in Slidell, La says they can fix it for $250.00 (with a new unit)!!! I want information on how to take it apart and fix it and cannot get a answer from the Jeep co.
