Summary of Complaint

MY JEEP COMMANDER HAS HAD 3 DIFFERENT MECHANICAL DIAGNOSTICS TO DIAGNOSE WHY THE VEHICLE SHUTS OFF CONTINUALLY WHILE IN MOTION OR STOPPED. THE IGNITION SWITCH WAS RECENTLY REPLACED AS A PART OF A RECALL AND THIS HAS NOT SOLVED THE ISSUE EITHER. THE JEEP WILL RANDOMLY SHUT OFF, AND ALL POWER STEERING IS LOSS, CAUSING A VERY UNSAFE CONDITION UNTIL IT CAN BE PUT INTO PARK OR NEUTRAL AND TURN BACK ON. MY LAST DIAGNOSTIC SHOWED THE AUTO REPAIR SHOPPED A COMPUTER READ OF 'RUNNING' WHILE THE TRUCK HAD TURNED OFF SEVERAL TIMES RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM. I HAVE SPENT A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY ON DIAGNOSTICS AND NO MECHANIC HAS BEEN ABLE TO FIND AN ANSWER EVEN AFTER THE IGNITION SWITCH WAS REPLACED AS PART OF AN ORIGINAL RECALL. I WAS TOLD BY ALL THREE AUTO REPAIR SHOPS THAT THEY KNOW THERE IS A STALLING/SHUT OFF ISSUE BUT THEY ARE UNABLE TO FIX IT BECAUSE THERE IS NO INDICATOR OF WHY THROUGH THOROUGH DIAGNOSTICS. THEY ALSO NOTED THAT WHEN THE JEEP SHUTS OFF THE DASH LIGHTS DO NOT TURN ON AS IT WOULD NORMALLY WHEN A VEHICLE SHUTS OFF. WHEN THE JEEP HAS SHUT OFF ON ME DRIVING DOWN A MAJOR ROAD AT 40 MILES PER HOUR MY ONLY INDICATOR THAT MY VEHICLE HAS SHUT OFF IS THAT MY STEERING WHEEL LOCKS UP AS THE JEEP BEGINS TO SLOW DOWN. THE NEW IGNITION SWITCH HAS NOT REMEDIED THE SHUT OFF ISSUE AND NO MECHANICAL SHOP HAS BEEN ABLE TO DIAGNOSE AND OTHER REASON WHY. ESSENTIALLY MY JEEP COMMANDER IS VERY UNSAFE WITH NO SOLUTION ABLE TO FOUND. I RESEARCHED FURTHER AND FOUND THAT THERE WAS A FRONT CONTROL MODULE RECALL ON SOME 2008 JEEP COMMANDERS ISSUED. I BELIEVE MY JEEP COMMANDER'S VIN MAY NEED TO BE ADDED TO THIS RECALL FOR THIS MAKE AND MODEL BECAUSE THE IGNITION SWITCH RECALL HAS NOT FIXED THE ISSUE AND NO MECHANICAL DIAGNOSTIC HAS BEEN ABLE TO ANSWER WHY. EVERYTHING ELSE IS COMPLETELY SOUND WITH THE JEEP COMMANDER EXCEPT THIS ISSUE OF SHUTTING OFF WHILE ON, IN MOTION OR PARKED.

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT MY VEHICLE AT A NISSAN DEALERSHIP AND DIDN'T KNOW THAT IT LEAKED INTO THE CABIN ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE FOOT WELL BECAUSE OF THE DRAIN TUBES FOR THE SUNROOF. I TOOK IT IN THEY SAID IT WAS FIXED BUT THE VERY NEXT TIME IT RAINED IT WAS SOAKED AGAIN AND BY THEN I FOUND OUT WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON WITH THE VEHICLE. IT'S NOT THAT I DON'T WANT TO BE A GOOD CONSUMER AND NOT MAKE ANY WAVES, BUT I DON'T WANT TO KEEP PAYING FOR A LEAKING VEHICLE, AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. WHAT HAPPENS IF I GO TO STEP OUT OF THE VEHICLE AND SLIP AND FALL, I HAVE FEET ANKLE PROBLEMS AS IT IS AND IT'S DETRIMENTAL TO MY HEALTH SHOULD THAT HAPPEN.
