SUSPECTED WHEEL CALIPER ON FRONT DRIVERS' SIDE, OR SOMETHING IN THAT AREA. DAY 4, I KNEW I HAD TO DO SOMETHING.

DROVE TO A PEPBOYS; NOISE BECAME WORSE, AND I HAD DIFFICULTY TURNING TIGHT CORNERS TO PULL INTO THEIR PARKING SPACE. WAS TOTALLY AFRAID TO DRIVE THE CAR ANY FURTHER. PEPBOYS DID SOME ROAD TESTING, AND PUT CAR UP ON LIFT. MY FRONT CONTROL ARMS HAD RUSTED AND TORN BUSHINGS.

IT WAS REPLACED UNDER THE MANUFACTURE WARRANTY APRIL 2018. MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN JANUARY 2019 MAKING A KNOCKING NOISE. BROUGHT THE TRUCK IN TO THE CHRYSLER SHOP TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT. I WAS AGAIN TOLD MY MOTOR THEY REPLACED NOT EVEN A YEAR AGO WAS BLOWN. THE PISTON AND RODS WERE BAD AND WAS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY AND IT WOULD COST ME 7,000 TO REPLACE THE MOTOR. THIS IS A 2017 JEEP PATRIOT THAT IS NOW ON ITS 3RD ENGINE IN LESS THAN 3 YEARS. CHRYSLER NOR CHARLIES MOTOR MALL JEEP WILL NOT HELP ME IN ANY WAY AND SAY THAT I NEED TO PAY 7,000 DOLLARS TO HAVE A NEW ENGINE PUT IN.

Summary of Complaint

WHAT HAPPENED: WHILE DRIVING AT 20 MPH I HEARD A LOUD BANG AND SWERVING OF THE VEHILCE WHICH I THOUGHT WAS A FLAT TIRE. I FOUND THAT THE LEFT REAR WHEEL FELL OFF CAUSING LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE WHICH I WAS ABLE TO STOP WITHOUT CRASHING DUE TO MY EMERGENCY VEHICLE DRIVING WITH THE STATE PATROL. WHEN STOPPED SAW THAT THE WHEEL HAD FALLEN OFF AND THE CONTROL ARM BROKEN. (PHOTO) DIAGNOSIS: NORTH BEND CHEV REPAIRED THE VEHICLE AND FOUND THAT THE LEFT REAR CONTROL ARM HAD SEVERED (PHOTOS) IN HALF DAMAGING THE AXLE. THE THREADS ON THE INSIDE OF THE CONTROL ARM APPEAR TO BE WORN AWAY. THE DEFECTIVE CONTROL ARM WAS REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE WHICH IS A SINGLE PIECE WITHOUT A DETACHABLE THREADED PART AND THIS PROBLEM SHOULD HAVE BEEN KNOWN BY JEEP. REPAIRS: COST $1392 (BILL ATTACHED). THE RIGHT CONTROL ARM WAS INSPECTED BUT NOT REPLACED WITH THE IMPROVED PART. MY CONCERNS: MINUTES PRIOR TO THIS INCIDENT I HAD DRIVEN DOWN A STEEP CURVING SECONDARY ROAD WHERE THIS WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN COMPLETE LOSS OF CONTROL AND CRASHING AS WELL AS POSSIBLY A COLLISION WITH ONCOMING TRRAFFIC. A MINUTE LATER I WOULD HAVE ENTERED THE INTERDATE AT 60-870 MPH AND A CATASTROPHINC CRASH WOULD HAVE RESULTED, POSSIBLY INVOLVING MULTIPLE VEHICLES. IF THE BROKEN CONTROL ARRM COULD NOT BE IDENTIFIED AS THE CAUSE OF THE CRASH IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED THE RESULT OF AN 84 YEAR OLD MAN DRIVING HAVING A POSSIBLE HEART ATTACK/MEDICAL PROBLEM RATHER THAN A VEHICLE FAILURE. I CONSIDER MYSELF VERY LUCKY THAT THIS HAPPENED AT A SLOW SPEED AT THE PLACE IT HAPPENED. REMEDY: I FEEL THAT THIS IS AN UNDETECTED FAILURE OF THE CONTROL ARM WHICH WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN DETECTED DURING NORMAL VEHICLE MAINTENANCE INSPECTIONS. I CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE DRIVING THIS MODEL VEHICLE AND SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED FOR A POSSIBLE RECALL BEFORE SOMEONE'S LIFE IS JEOPARDIZED.

I WAS REAR ENDED WHILE STOPPED IN HEAVY TRAFFIC ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY. I WAS SITTING ON THE DRIVERS SEAT. MY CAR SEAT HAD A SEAT BACK FAILURE AS SOON AS THE AT FAULT CAR IMPACTED ME. MEANING INSTEAD OF HOLDING ME IN PLACE IT JUST FLIPPED BACK WITH MY HEAD AND SHOULDERS ENDING ON BACKSEAT. I WAS PUSHED INTO THE CAR IN FRONT AND THE AIRBAG DIDN'T DEPLOY BUT THE HEADRESTS DID. I SUSTAINED HEAD BACK AND NECK INJURIES AS WELL AS BRUISES ON THE BACK OF MY CALVES FROM HITTING THE REAR/FORWARD BAR ON BOTTOM OF SEAT. AS THE CAR IMPACTED ME MY PELVIC AREA WAS TRUST SLIGHTLY BECAUSE THE SEATBELT IN PLACE DIDN'T HOLD ME AS I BASICALLY SLID A BIT OF IT WHEN BENDING BACKWARDS ON MY SEAT. THE VEHICLE WAS STATIONARY ON DRIVE BUT MY FOOT FIRMLY PLANTED ON BRAKE. THE DRIVER WHO HIT ME PUSHED ME INTO THE FRONT SEAT BUT BY THE TIME I HIT IT I WAS ALREADY ON MY BACK, SO CAR SEAT FAILURE HAPPENED ON REAR IMPACT, BEFORE I HIT CAR IN FRONT. SINCE WE WHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY I HAD TO MOVE THE CAR TO THE RIGHT SHOULDER AND WHILE DAZED PULLED UP SIDE LEVER TO BRING CAR SEAT BACK, AND IT DID. SO THIS DEFECT IS BASICALLY INVISIBLE UNLESS YOU ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE IT.

THIS HAPPENED AFTER MY FIRST OIL CHANGE AROUND 5000 MILES. I RESTARTED THE VEHICLE ABOUT 10 MINUTES LATER AND IT DROVE FINE. I DROVE TO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE I HAD THE OIL CHANGED. THE ATTENDANT HOOKED THE VEHICLE UP TO A COMPUTER CHECK AND NOTHING SHOWED UP. I DROVE WITHOUT ANY ISSUES UNTIL AFTER MY LAST OIL CHANGE, I DROVE FROM PHOENIX TO PRESCOTT AZ. I TOOK THE EXIT TO PRESCOTT AND SLOWED DOWN TO 35 WHEN I GOT TO MAYER AZ, I STEPPED ON THE GAS AFTER GOING THROUGH TOWN TO ACCELERATE, IT WOULD ONLY ACCELERATE TO 40 MPH WITH MY FOOT PRESSED ALL THE WAY DOWN ON THE GAS PEDAL. I PULLED OVER AND PUT IT IN PARK. I LET IT SIT AND STEPPED ON THE ACCELERATOR THE VEHICLE WENT AGAIN, I CAME UP TO A STOP LIGHT AND WHEN I PROCEEDED TO GO IT STARTED REVVING AGAIN. I MADE IT THROUGH THE STOP LIGHT AND PULLED OVER AND TURNED THE VEHICLE OFF. SINCE I RESTARTED IT AND AM BACK IN PHOENIX I HAVE NOT HAD ANY ISSUES YET. THERE IS SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG WITH THIS VEHICLE. I AM TAKING IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AGAIN. I LOOKED ONLINE AND FOUND THIS HAS BEEN A PROBLEM WITH JEEPS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS, NEEDS TO BE RESOLVED. THANK YOU
