Summary of Complaint

THE JEEP TURNED OFF WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING MULTIPLE TIMES. THE ENGINE WOULD SHUT OFF, SHE WOULD HAVE TO TURN THE JEEP OFF AND SHIFT TO PARK. SHE WOULD THEN HAVE TO START THE JEEP AND PUT IT INTO GEAR TO DRIVE. ALL THESE STEPS HAD TO BE DONE WHILE IN TRAFFIC. ONE TIME SHE WAS TURNING LEFT AT A BUSY INTERSECTION. WE TOOK IT TO THE DEALER TO FIX, THE MECHANIC WAS ABLE TO REPLICATE THE ISSUE. THE SAID THE OIL NEEDED TO BE CHANGED (CHARGED US OVER $100). THEY CHANGED THE OIL AND GAVE US THE JEEP BACK. TWO MONTHS LATER THE JEEP DID THE SAME THING. THIS TIME IN OUR DRIVEWAY (NOT AS SCARY). I TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALER THE NEXT DAY. THEY HAD THE JEEP 1 WEEK AND COULD NOT REPLICATE THE ISSUE AGAIN. THEY TOLD ME TO COME GET THE JEEP. I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THIS ANSWER (MY WIFE AND TWO BOYS DRIVE THIS JEEP). I EMAILED THE CEO OF CHRYSLER FCA US LLC MY CONCERNS. I WAS CALLED BACK BY REGINA KNOX. SHE HAD THE DEALER KEEP THE AUTO FOR ANOTHER WEEK. THEY STILL DID NOT FIND ANY ISSUES. I WAS TOLD TO GET THE CAR AND THAT THEY WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING FOR ME. I TOLD HER I FELT THE JEEP WAS UNSAFE. I TOLD HER I DIDN'T WANT TO DRIVE IT. SHE SAID "I CANNOT BUY IT FROM YOU", SHE DID OFFER ME EMPLOYEE PRICING IF I WANTED ANOTHER NEW AUTO FROM CHRYSLER. THE ERROR MESSAGE READS "SHIFT TO P THEN DESIRED GEAR"

Summary of Complaint

I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN MY TRANSMISSION LIGHT CAME ON AND THE VEHICLE STOPPED ACCELERATING. I HAD TO PULL OVER, PUT IT IN PARK, THEN BACK INTO DRIVE TO GET IT TO MOVE AGAIN. THIS HAPPENED NUMEROUS TIME UNTIL I COULD GET IT TO A JEEP DEALERSHIP NORTH OF ATLANTA GEORGIA. WHEN I FINALLY GOT TO THE DEALERSHIP, MY SON AND I TOLD THEM WHAT WAS HAPPENING. THEY APPARENTLY KNEW IMMEDITATELY THAT IT WAS A COMPUTER MALFUNCTION. MY VEHICLE NEEDED APPROXIMATELY 7 UPDATES TO THE COMPUTER!! MY SON AND I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THE MIDDLE OF CITY TRAFFIC ON A HIGHWAY BECAUSE OF A COMPUTER! I ASKED THE SERVICE MANAGER WHY I WAS NEVER TOLD THIS COULD HAPPEN AND HE SAID THERE IS NO WAY TO TELL AND THERE IS ALSO NO WARNING THIS WILL HAPPEN OR IF IT MAY HAPPEN AGAIN. I AM TERRIFIED OF THIS CAR THAT I CAN NOT GET RID OF NOW! NOW I SEE THAT SOME OTHER CHEROKEES CAN SPONTANEOUSLY ACCELERATE AND THEN GO INTO PARK ON ITS OWN? ANOTHER COMPUTER ISSUE? I HATE THIS CAR NOW AND IT TERRIFIES ME TO HAVE MY FAMILY IN IT. WE GOT IT TO TRAVEL FROM FL TO CT AND NOW I WILL NO LONGER TAKE THE CHANCE WITH MY FAMILY'S LIVES.

Summary of Complaint

No previous issues with the vehicle until this incident. That morning on my way to work my check engine light came on. I called my husband and he said he would check it out that evening. Got to work fine. When I went to go home from work my car was acting strange. The ac or blower and the radio wouldn’t come on at all until after about 15 minutes of driving. About 5 minutes later my brakes wouldn’t work at all trying to stop at a light and I ended up crashing into a car that was completely stopped while going about 35mph. My front collision detection didn’t go off until I was about an inch away from the vehicle and the automatic emergency brake didn’t engage either and normally if a car is turning slowly 30 ft ahead it will slam on the brakes. Nothing worked and I am terrified to continue driving this vehicle.

I BOUGHT MY 2015 JEEP CHEROKEE ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND LESS THAN A MONTH LATER I WAS ALREADY NOTICING THAT THE HEADLIGHTS WOULD DIM AS SOON AS I WOULD USE MY TURN SIGNAL. THIS CONTINUED FOR ABOUT A MONTH UNTIL I NOTICED THAT THE HEADLIGHTS WERE NOTICEABLY DIM ON BOTH SIDES. I NEEDED TO GET OUT OF MY CAR SEVERAL TIMES TO MAKE SURE THE HEADLIGHTS WERE EVEN ON. WHENEVER I AM DRIVING IN A LOW LIGHT AREA AT NIGHT IT IS INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THIS IS CLEARLY A DEFECT.
