IN DECEMBER 2019 I RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE V51 FOR AN SYSTEM UPDATE TO THE POWERTRAIN (POWER CONTROL MODULE). ON 1/30/20 I TOOK MY BELOVED JEEP TO PUTNUM CHRYSLR JEEP IN BURLINGAME, CA TO PERFORM THE UPDATE. ON 4/24/20 I WENT TO PERFORM A STAR SMOG AND I FAILED DUE TO OBD11 NOT READY (OXYGEN SENSORS). I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. I TAKE EXCEPTIONAL CARE FOR MY CAR AND DON'T HESITATE TO TAKE IT TO THE MECHANIC AND WAS SUPRISED. THEREAFTER, I TOOK IT BACK TO AND IT STATED THE SAME THING OBD11 NOT READY. ON 6/10/20 I TOOK IT TO ANOTHER SMOG PLACE AND AGAIN FAILED DUE TO OBD11 NOT READY. I THEN HAD THE SYSTEM RESET. DROVE IT FOR OVER 40 MILES AND TOOK IT TO THE SAME PLACE FOR SMOG AND AGAIN OBD11 NOT READY. I SPOKE TO BAR AND THEY CAN'T FIGURE THIS OUT. I NOW HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE REF AND THEY NOTED THAT THEY CAN PASS ME DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF MONEY I'VE SPENT TRYING TO CORRECT THIS OBD11 NOT READY. I EVEN REPLACED THE UPSTREAM OXYGEN SENSORS FOR NO REASON. I HAD A DIAGOSTIC PERFORMED AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CAR. WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THIS OXYGEN SENSOR ISSUE?

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING MY CAR DOWN A HILL AT APPROXIMATELY 45 MILES AND HOUR, ECO MODE WAS ACTIVATED, AND BEGAN TO SLOW DOWN THE LIGHT WHEN SUDDENLY MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT CAME ON. I FELT MY CAR LOSING POWER AND STEERING, BUT THANKFULLY WAS ABLE TO COAST TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD BEFORE IT TOTALLY SHUT OFF. I HAD IT TOWED TO A JEEP DEALERSHIP, WHERE THEY INSPECTED IT AND INFORMED ME THAT THE TIMING CHAIN BROKE. THEY HAD NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE AND INFORMED ME IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE THAT THIS HAPPENED DUE TO NORMAL USE OF THE VEHICLE. THEY RECOMMENDED REPLACING THE CHAIN, TENSIONERS, ETC., WHICH I HAD THEM DO, BUT THEY WENT TO TEST DRIVE THE VEHICLE AND FOUND THERE WAS DAMAGE TO THE VALVES. AFTER RESEARCHING THIS PROBLEM, I CAME ACROSS THIS EXACT SAME ISSUE, OCCURRING UNDER THE SAME OR SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES, IN DODGE CHALLENGERS AND CHARGERS WITH THE SAME ENGINE (5.7L V8 HEMI) IN THE SAME YEAR (2010). I SAW THAT THERE WAS AN OPEN RECALL FOR THOSE VEHICLES AND CALLED JEEP TO DISCUSS THIS, BUT THEY INFORMED ME THAT WHILE THIS WAS THE SAME THING, THERE WAS NO OPEN RECALLS FOR MY GRAND CHEROKEE AND SO THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING ON I20 IN ATLANTA.IN THE LEFT LANE, OF AT LEAST 6 LANES AT 70 MPH. MY ENGINE JUST STOPPED IN HEAVY, HIGH SPEED TRAFFIC. I MOVED TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD AS CAR FLEW BY, FLASHING LIGHTS AND BLOWING THEIR HORNS AND WAS NEARLY REAR ENDED SEVERAL TIMES. THE JEEP WAS HAULED TO A DEALER WHERE I WAS TOLD THAT MY TIMING CHAIN HAD BROKEN AND HAD SEVERELY DAMAGED MY ENGINE WITH 95,760 MILES SHOWING. I LOVE MY JEEP. IT IS IN EXCELLENT COND. AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN MAINTAINED IT TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS, 3,000 MILE MOBILE 1 OIL CHANGES, ALONG WITH ALL OTHER RECOMMENDED SERVICES. CHRYSLER HAS KNOWN ABOUT THIS TIMING CHAIN PROBLEM AND RECALLED OTHER, SAME YEAR MODELS INCLUDING THE 300, THE CHARGER AND THE CHALLENGER ALL WITH THE SAME ENGINE. THE RECALL IS # P01. HAD I KNOWN ABOUT THIS PROBLEM I WOULD HAVE HAD THE RECOMMENDED REPAIRS DONE THAT WOULD HAVE COST A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR PARTS AND 5 TO 6 HOURS LABOR. INSTEAD, I HAD TO PAY OVER $7,000. FOR THE ENGINE REPAIRS. ABOUT AS MUCH AS MY CAR IS ACTUALLY WORK! YES THIS WAS EXPENSIVE BUT MORE IMPORTANT WAS THE "WHERE AND HOW" THIS HAPPENED. IT WAS A VERY DANGEROUS HIGH SPEED, TRAFFIC SITUATION THAT COULD HAVE EASILY PRODUCED A HUGE, REAR ENDING TRAGIC ACCIDENT AND LOSE OF PROPERTY AND/OR LIVES. WHY DID CHRYSLER NOT WARN OWNERS OF THE 2010 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE WITH THIS DANGEROUS, EXPLOSIVE ENGINE PROBLEM THAT THEY KNEW WAS GOING TO HAPPEN? THEIR RECALL INCLUDED SOME 50,000 OTHER VEHICLES WITH THE SAME ENGINE. WERE THEIR LIVES MORE VALUABLE THAN MINE? SHAME ON CHRYSLER AND WHATEVER REASONING THEY USED TO PUT ME AND THE OTHER OWNERS OF THE 2010 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LIMITED 5.7 AT RISK. IF IT HASN'T HAPPENED TO DATE, SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE KILLED DUE TO THIS DANGEROUS SITUATION THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY CHRYSLER. PLEASE HELP MY TO FORCE CHRYSLER TO INCLUDE THESE CARS IN THEIR RECALL. THESE OWNERS ARE IN DANGER!

Summary of Complaint

HELLO, MY NAME IS [XXX] AND I OWN A 2010 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LIMITED 5.7L HEMI HERE IN KUWAIT. I HAVE BEEN WORKING IN KUWAIT SUPPORTING THE WARFIGHTER SINCE 2007. I PURCHASED MY NICE WELL MAINTAINED JEEP IN FEBRUARY 2018. I JUST REACHED 82,000 MILES AND ON MONDAY SEPTEMBER 2 2019 I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY AROUND 60-70MPH WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I HEARD A VERY SUBTLE NOISE AND I LOOKED AT MY DASH TO SEE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND ANOTHER LIGHT. AT THAT POINT I HAD NO POWER AND I SHIFTED INTO NEUTRAL. I TRIED RESTARTING AND COULD HEAR THE STARTER TURNING OVER BUT IT DIDN'T START BACK UP. ONCE I GOT TO A SAFE PLACE I TRIED AGAIN AND STILL NOTHING. IT WAS TURNING OVER WITH NO BAD SOUNDS AND SEEMED LIKE IT WAS TURNING OVER EASILY. I HAD THE JEEP TOWED TO A MECHANIC WHERE THEY FOUND 4 CYLINDERS HAD NO COMPRESSION. THEY REMOVED THE HEADS TO FIND SOME VALVES WERE VISIBLY BENT. WHEN THEY TRIED TURNING THE CRANK BY HAND THEY FOUND THE CAM WAS NOT MOVING. UPON OPENING THE FRONT COVER THE TIMING CHAIN HAD ACTUALLY FAILED AND WAS BROKEN. I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED TO SAY THE LEAST. I WAS HOPING TO HAVE A NICE CAR FOR A WHILE AND THIS JEEP WAS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE. I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING AND FOUND THERE HAS BEEN A RECALL FOR THE SAME ENGINE IN OTHER MOPAR VEHICLES AND WAS HOPING TO GET SOME INSIGHT IF MY JEEP LIKE OTHERS I HAVE READ ABOUT WOULD BE ABLE TO GO UNDER THAT RECALL FOR THE SAME PROBLEM. I THINK ITS SOMETHING WITH THE TENSIONER ON THE RECALL THAT ENDS UP WIPING OUT THE TIMING CHAIN. I DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ONLY PUT LIKE 3 VEHICLES IN THE RECALL BUT IF ITS THE SAME ENGINE WHY NOT FIX THEM ALL. I REALLY LIKE MY JEEP AND HOPE TO GET MORE INFO OF THE RECALL.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRVING MY JEEP AT HIGHWAY SPEED THROUGH A TOLLWAY IN ILLINOIS. I LET UP OFF THE THROTTLE AND THE ENGINE SHUT OFF. 5 OR SO WARNING LIGHTS CAME ON. I LOST THROTTLE RESPONSE, POWER STEERING, AND POWER BRAKES. I HAD THE JEEP TOWED TO THE JEEP DEALER. AFTER 2 DAYS, THE MECHANIC FOUND MY TIMING CHAIN BROKEN. HE ALSO FOUND MY VALVES WERE BENT. HE SAID I WOULD NEED A NEW MOTOR. I DID RESEARCH AND FOUND THAT CHRYSLER KNOWS ABOUT THIS ISSUE. THE TROUBLE IS THEY ONLY RECALLED CHALLENGERS, CHARGERS AND 300C'S. THEY NAMED IT THE P01 CUSTOMER SATISFACTION NOTIFICATION. I HAVE THE 5.7 HEMI IN MY JEEP AND IT IS AN AUTOMATIC WITH THE MDS. THE SERVICE MANUAL SAYS THE TIMING CHAIN DOES NOT NEED MAINTENANCE AND WILL LAST THE LIFE OF THE MOTOR.
