NHTSA ID Number: 10185148
Consumer Location: LAYTON, UT
VIN: 1J4GZ58S8WC****

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS AND MAKING SLIGHT TURNS THE 1998 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE WILL VIBRATE AND BOUNCE. THE STEERING WHEEL WILL BEGIN TO PULL AND THE FRONT RIGHT TIRE FEELS LIKE IT IS COMING OFF OR BOUNCING. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER AND THREE INDEPENDENT SHOPS FOR THIS PROBLEM OVER A 2 YEAR PERIOD. ALL OF HAVE FELT THE PROBLEM AND HAVE NO IDEA WHERE IT IS COMING FROM. I HAVE SO FAR REPLACED THE ENTIRE FRONT BRAKE SYSTEM, ALL FRONT BUSHINGS, SHOCKS, TIRES, FRONT U BOLTS, AND HAD THE WHOLE SYSTEM INSPECTED BY AT LEAST 10 DIFFERENT MECHANICS. ALSO THE BRAKES FEEL LIKE THEY ARE RIDING ON A WARPED ROTOR. WHEN BREAKING THE PEDAL PUSHES BACK AT THE DRIVER AND MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO CONTROL THE BREAKING. THIS PROBLEM HAS ALSO BEEN LOOKED AT BY THE DEALER AND THE AFOREMENTIONED SHOPS. TO DATE NO SOLUTION HAS BEEN FOUND AND THE PROBLEM KEEPS GETTING WORSE. I FEAR THAT EITHER OF THESE PROBLEMS CAN CAUSE A MAJOR FAILURE LEADING TO INJURY OR DEATH. *JB
