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.

Summary of Complaint

THE DESCRIBED VEHICLE WAS SUBJECT TO RECALL W47 WHEREIN THE PTU SPLINES COULD DEGRADE CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO HAVE NO MOTIVE POWER AND COULD ROLL AWAY. THE RECALL UPDATED THE SOFTWARE TO ESSENTIALLY INSTRUCT THE VEHICLE TO ENGAGE THE PARKING BRAKE AND ALLOW MOTIVE POWER WITH REAR WHEEL DRIVE. THE RECALL DID NOT CALL FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF THE FAULTY PART, JUST A MEANS OF KEEPING THE VEHICLE SAFE ONCE THE PART FAILED. THE RECALL WAS ISSUED IN JULY 2020 AND WE TOOK OURS TO FREMONT MOTORS JEEP (WYOMING) AND HAD THE SOFTWARE UPDATED (RECALL ADDRESSED). ON FEBRUARY 20, 2021, MY WIFE WAS DRIVING THE VEHICLE FROM WYOMING TO IOWA ON INTERSTATE 90. AS SHE CROSSED FROM SOUTH DAKOTA INTO MINNESOTA, THE PTU FAILED WHICH ALSO LED TO THE FAILURE OF THE DRIVELINE CONTROL MODULE. SHE WAS USING THE INSIDE LANE AND PASSING OTHER TRAFFIC WHEN THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY LOST POWER, THE ENGINE REVVED, AND THE VEHICLE TRIED STOPPING ITSELF. SHE WAS ABLE TO NEGOTIATE OTHER TRAFFIC, AVOID A COLLISION, AND PULL OFF THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROADWAY. THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE WAS -8F. I WAS ALREADY IN IOWA AND DROVE AN HOUR TO RETRIEVE HER AND HER BAGGAGE FROM THE VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO SIOUX FALLS, SD, AND WAS LATER DIAGNOSED AND REPAIRED BY BILLION JEEP. IT WOULD SEEM THAT THE RECALL SHOULD HAVE INCLUDE REPLACEMENT OF THE KNOWN FAULTY PART AND NOT JUST AN UPDATE TO THE SOFTWARE TO ADDRESS THE VEHICLE "AFTER" THE PART FAILED. IT CREATED A DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR MY WIFE AND THE OTHER PEOPLE SHARING THE ROADWAY THAT NIGHT. RECALL W47 OBVIOUSLY DID NOT ADDRESS THE ISSUE FAR ENOUGH. IT CERTAINLY FAVORED THE MANUFACTURER OVER THE SAFETY OF THE VEHICLE OWNERS.

THE OIL FILTER HOUSING IS MADE OF PLASTIC, CAUSING IT TO EASILY BREAK MOST LIKELY DUE TO OVERTIGHTENING WHEN GETTING AN OIL CHANGE, THEN THIS CAUSES OIL TO LEAK ONTO THE EXHAUST PIPE BEING A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD, SINCE MOST PEOPLE GO GET THEIR OIL CHANGED AT A BUSINESS NOT THEMSELVES YOU WOULDN'T KNOW UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE AND NOBODY WILL ACCEPT FAULT, JEEP NEEDS TO RECALL AND MAKE THIS HOUSING OUT OF METAL TO PREVENT THIS ISSUE.
