Summary of Complaint

1994 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE WAS PLACED ON RECALL LIST OF CHRYSLER TO INSTALL TRAILER HITCH. RECALL SERVICE STATED RUST AND CORROSION LEVEL 5 UNABLE TO COMPLETE RECALL. I THEN TOOK MY CAR TO A MUFFLER SHOP AND HAD IT RAISED TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON. I SAW NO EXTREME AMOUNT OF RUST THAT WOULD HAVE PREVENTED THEM FROM PERFORMING THE RECALL WORK. I ASKED THE MECHANIC IF THEY COULD INSTALL A TRAILER HITCH TO MY CAR, THEY SAID FOR A FEE. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THEY DID NOT WANT TO COMPLETE THE WORK, BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T MAKE ANY MONEY OFF OF IT. ANOTHER THING, I WANT CONSIDERED IS THE FACT, THAT MY CAR IS AT LEAST 21 YEARS OLD, SO THERE MIGHT POSSIBLY BE RUST, BUT NOT TO THE LEVEL THAT WOULD PREVENT THEM FROM COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION.

Summary of Complaint

INCIDENT OCCURRED TWICE IN ONE DAY. HAD OCCURRED BEFORE, BUT VERY INFREQUENTLY. DRIVING AROUND 66 MILES PER HOUR ON A HIGHWAY, THE CAR HIT A SLIGHT BUMP IN THE ROAD AND BEGAN TO SHAKE, VIOLENTLY AND UNCONTROLLABLY. THE FRONT END OF THE CAR SHAKES SO SEVERELY THAT I AM FORCED TO SLOW DOWN TO UNDER 15 MPH TO STOP IT. THE PROBLEM AGAIN OCCURRED LATER THAT SAME DAY, ON A DIFFERENT ROAD (A MAJOR U.S INTERSTATE), TRAVELING AT ABOUT THE SAME OR PERHAPS SLIGHTLY GREATER SPEED. THE BUMP THAT I HIT WAS VERY SMALL, BUT THE SHAKING THAT CAME AFTER CAUSED ME TO SHIFT LANES AND PULL OFF ON THE SHOULDER OF THE INTERSTATE TO MAKE IT STOP. ALL TOGETHER, I WOULD SAY THAT THIS HAS OCCURRED WITH MY VEHICLE ABOUT 8 OR 9 TIMES, BUT WAS THOUGHT TO BE FIXED SEVERAL YEARS AGO (BY A MECHANIC ADMITTEDLY NOT ASSOCIATED WITH JEEP). THE PROBLEM WENT AWAY FOR A WHILE BUT IS OBVIOUSLY RETURNING AND GETTING WORSE. SOME OTHER JEEP OWNERS REFER TO IT AS THE DEATH-WOBBLE, DO TO THE VIOLENT AND ALARMING NATURE OF THE SHAKING. *TR
