Summary of Complaint

"TAKATA RECALL" I OWN A 2008 JEEP COMMANDER WITH A 3.7 LITER ENGINE. I ALWAYS MADE MY OIL CHANGE AT 50,000 MILES OR 6 MONTHS INTERVALS. I HAVE LEARNED THAT JEEP CHRYSLER AND DODGE VEHICLES PRODUCED FROM 2005 TO 2012 ALL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM OF THE OIL PICKUP TUBE NOT WORKING PROPERLY OR GETS CLOGGED WITH SLIM SO THT NO ENGINE OIL REACHES THE PISTONS AND CYLINDER HEAD. WHILE DRIVING, MY ENGINE THREW A PISTON ROD TROUGH THE ENGINE BLOCK AND INTO THE OIL PAN. I AM SURE THAT JEEP KNEW OF THE PROBLEM WITH THE OIL PICKUP TUBE BUT DID NOTHING TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM SINCE THE ENGINE WOULD HAVE TO BE PULLED FROM THE VEHICLE TO REPLACE THE OIL PICKUP TUBE. I LOVE MY JEEP BUT AGAIN, JEEP KNEW ABOUT THIS ISSUE WITH THE 3.7L ENGINE WITH THE 8TH DIGIT OF THE VIN BEING K. JEEP/DODGE/CHRYSLER SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REPAIRS OF THESE VEHICLES ESPECIALLY WHEN THE ENGINE IS NOW BLOWN ALL DUE TO A DEFECTIVE OIL PICKUP TUBE. THE CUSTOMERS/OWNERS OF THESE VEHICLES WITH THE 3,7L ENGINE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET A NEW ENGINE FOR FREE IF THE ENGINE BLOCK HAS BECOME DAMAGED OR REPLACE THE OIL PICKUP TUBES FOR THOSE WHO HAVE YET TO HAVE THEIR ENGINE BLOWN. I HAVE SEEN MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ENGINE AND THIS WAS ONE OF THE TOP ISSUE AND THAT BEING A BAD OIL PICKUP TUBE WHICH CAUSES INTERNAL DAMAGE TO THE ENGINE. I WAS DRIVING IN TOWN TAKING BTRASH TO THE DUMP WHEN IT THREW A CYLINDER AND SOUNDED LIKE BROKEN METAL IN THE ENGINE. ENGINE LOST COMPRESSION AND HAD TO HAVE VEHICLE TOWED HOME. WHAT I THOUGHT MAY BE A STARTER PROBLEM, I NOTICED THAT THE CYLINDER ACTUALLY WENT THRU THE BLOCK AND OIL PAN. GOOGLE UP DODGE/JEEP/CHRYSLER OIL PICKUP TUBE COMPLAINTS, YOU WILL FIND THAT THEIR ARE MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ISSUE MAINLY EFFECTING THE VEHICLES FROM 2005 TO 2012 WITH THE 8TH DIGIT OF THE VIN BEING A LETTER (K). LIKE TO GET MY ENGINE REPLACED WITH A GOOD USED ENGINE AT NO COST TO ME.

Summary of Complaint

ON SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2013 AT 10:00AM, I WENT TO START MY 2008 JEEP COMMANDER AND IT WOULD NOT TURN OVER. I WAS GETTING A "DAMAGED KEY" OR "WRONG KEY" ERROR MESSAGE. MY HUSBAND CAME FROM HIS JOB TO ALSO START IT. HE WAS ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO START VERY INTERMITTENTLY. WE DECIDED THAT I WOULD LEAVE WORK TO TAKE THE CAR HOME TO TRY THE SPARE KEY. IT ALSO DID NOT WORK. AT 1:00PM ON SEPTEMBER 17TH, WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO THE JEEP DEALERSHIP. THE DEALERSHIP DIAGNOSED THE CAR AS NEEDING A NEW KEY FOB. I LET THEM KNOW THAT I FIRMLY BELIEVED THEY WERE INCORRECT AND THAT IT WAS THE WIRELESS IGNITION MODULE. THEY PROCEEDED WITH THE KEY FOB. ON SEPTEMBER 18TH, I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP TO FOLLOW UP ON THE STATUS OF MY CAR. THEY NOTED THAT IT WAS NOT THE KEY FOB, BUT THE WIRELESS IGNITION MODULE LIKE I SAID THE DAY PRIOR. THE DEALERSHIP LET ME KNOW THE PART WAS ON BACK ORDER AND I WAS NUMBER 103 ON THE WAITLIST. AFTER A LOT OF RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET, IT APPEARS THE ISSUE WITH THE WIRELESS IGNITION MODULE IS VERY COMMON WITH JEEPS. I HAVE NOW CALLED JEEP FOUR TIMES (SEPTEMBER 18TH - TWICE; SEPTEMBER 19TH - TWICE) AND HAVE NOT RECEIVED A SINGLE RETURN CALL TO BRING RESOLUTION TO THIS ISSUE. I NOW HAVE A CAR THAT DOES NOT RUN AND NO ANSWERS ON WHEN TO EXPECT A PART....A PART THAT HAS HAD A LOT OF ISSUES FOR JEEP OWNERS. WHERE IS JEEP'S RESPONSIBILITY TO THEIR CUSTOMERS? THE LACK OF CUSTOMER SERVICE AND ANSWERS IS VERY DISHEARTENING. *TR

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.

THIS HAS HAPPENED NOW 3 TIMES WITH IN 4 DAYS WITH IT CUTTING COMPLETELY OFF AND 5 TIMES TRYING TO WHILE DRIVING. THE 1ST TIME IT WAS ON A HIGHWAY GOING ABOUT 50 MILES AND HOUR. THE 2ND TIME I WAS GETTING OFF THE INTERSTATE WHILE GOING AROUND A CURVE GOING ABOUT 30 MILES AN HR. THE 3RD TIME I WAS DOING 35 MILES AN HR ON A BUSY STREET. THE TIMES THAT IT HAS ATTEMPTED TO SHUT OFF BUT DIDN'T I WAS GOING BETWEEN 45 AND 60 MILES AN HR. THIS IS UNSAFE FOR ANYONE TO BE DRIVING AND HAVE HAPPEN. IT CAN CAUSE ME TO HAVE ACCIDENT AND OR TO CAUSE A ACCIDENT. THIS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HARM AND LOSS OF LIFE. I AM NOT SURE IF IT IS THE IGNITION SWITCH OR AN ISSUE WITH THE MOTOR OR WIRING. SOMETHING IS WRONG. I SEE ON OTHER FORUMS THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE HAVING THIS ISSUE. I HAVE CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP THAT I HAVE RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS JEEP FROM I AM SCARED TO DRIVE IT. I AM IN FEAR FOR MYSELF AND KIDS AND OTHERS.

Summary of Complaint

THE LATCH ON THE 2ND ROW PASSENGER SIDE SEAT BELT FELL APART AND IS UNUSABLE. THE LATCH ON THE 2ND ROW DRIVERS SIDE SEAT BELT IS MALFUNCTIONING. IT DOES NOT ALWAYS ACCEPT THE SEAT BELT AND IF IT DOES, WILL NOT RELEASE WITHOUT SIGNIFICANT FORCE MAKING IT ALSO UNUSABLE.
