Summary of Complaint

I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE 3 ALTERNATORS THROUGHOUT THE PAST 2 MONTHS DUE TO A ELECTRIC PROBLEM. MY BATTERY LIGHT BECAME ILLUMINATED EACH TIME I WAS ON THE EXPRESSWAY GOING AROUND 70 MPH. THE BATTERY LIGHT INDICATOR TELLS ME MY BATTERY IS NOT PROPERLY CHARGING DUE TO MY ALTERNATOR. THIS LEADS TO IT HAVING A PROBLEM WITH THE COMPUTER IN MY CAR AS I WAS TOLD BY MY MECHANIC AND THAT THE PROBLEM WITH KEEP HAPPENING UNTIL I GET ANOTHER COMPUTER WHICH COSTS A GOOD AMOUNT TO HAVE REPLACED OR FIXED.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2008 JEEP PATRIOT WAS PARKED ON MY DRIVEWAY (NO TREES AROUND TO CAUSE A CLOG) FOR A MONTH, WHILE ON VACATION. WHEN I CAME BACK, THE TRUNK AND THE BACK SEAT FLOORS WERE FULL OF MOLD DUE TO WATER LEAKING THRU THE BACK DOME LIGHT. THEN AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH I LEARNED THAT THE LEAKING DOME LIGHT IS A COMMON PROBLEM ON THE 2007 AND 2008 JEEP PATRIOTS. UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME IT HAS BECOME A BIGGER PROBLEM THAN JUST A LEAK BECAUSE MY JEEP IS NOW FULL OF MOLD AND CANNOT NOT BE DRIVEN FOR THE MEANTIME AS IT IS A HAZARD FOR MY CHILDREN HEALTH.

Summary of Complaint

MY MOTHER OWNS A 2008 JEEP PATRIOT. I WAS DRIVING HER CAR ON THE HIGHWAY AT 60MPH. APPARENTLY, THE CAR WANTED TO STALL WHILE DRIVING AT HIGH SPEED. DUE TO AN ACCIDENT ON THE HIGHWAY, I WAS ABLE TO REDUCED THE SPEED SAFELY. WHEN I WENT TO CHANGE LANES TO THE RIGHT, THE SIGNAL SPARK AND/OR CAUSED THE INTERIOR LIGHTS TO GO ON. THE A/C CANNOT BE ON WHILE DRIVING EITHER. THERE SEEMS TO BE AN ELECTRICAL SHORT THAT IS CAUSING ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS TO HAPPEN ALL AT ONCE. I'M AFRAID TO HAVE MY MOTHER CONTINUE TO DRIVE THE CAR. SHE ONLY DRIVES ON LOCAL STREETS, BUT THIS TOO CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. I TOOK HER CAR 2 YEARS AGO TO A JEEP DEALER TO REPAIR AN ELECTRICAL SHORT ON THE HATCH DOOR DUE TO IT GETTING WET. THE DEALER REPLACED THE RUBBER MOLDINGS AROUND THE HATCH DOOR, BUT IT HAS RETURNED. AND AGAIN THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO FIND THE PROBLEM. ALL OF THESES PROBLEMS KEEP PERSISTING AND SHE IS AFRAID TO DRIVE.

Summary of Complaint

DURING ROUTINE MAINTENANCE, YY 2008 JEEP PATRIOT WITH 106,000 WAS DEEMED UNSAFE TO DRIVE DUE TO A RUSTED FRONT CROSSMEMBER. THERE IS NO OTHER RUST ON THE VEHICLE. THE 2007 JEEP PATRIOTS/COMPASS AND DODGE CALIBERS ALL HAD THEIR WARRANTIES EXTENDED SO THAT THE CROSSMEMBER COULD BE REPLACED. BASED ON INVESTIGATION THROUGH THE INTERNET IT APPEARS THAT MANY 2008 JEEP PATRIOTS & COMPASSES ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEM BUT CONSUMERS ARE NOT BEING NOTIFIED. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AS THE ROTTED FRAME IS NOT VISIBLE SO DRIVERS WOULD BE UNAWARE OF THE PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

APPROXIMATELY 12/2018 I HAD TO HAVE MY GAS TANK REPLACED DUE TO A FAULTY ROLLOVER VALVE/FLAPPER/INLET CHECK VALVE LOCATED IN THE GAS TANK. I AM NOW HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE NEW GAS TANK. THE COST TO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM IS WELL OVER $1400 AND TO HAVE TO DO THE SAME REPAIR TWICE IS UNTHINKABLE. THIS HAS TO BE SOME SORT OF SAFETY ISSUE AS WELL, BECAUSE IF THESE VALVES/FLAPPERS ARE SUPPOSED TO EXPEL AIR FROM THE SYSTEM, COULDN'T THIS BE HARMING MY VEHICLE MORE AND/OR CAUSE PRESSURE TO BUILD IN THE TANK? THERE WAS TSB 14-001-09 REV A ISSUED. CHRYSLER ADMITS THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM AND HAS RECALLED A BUNCH OF JEEPS, DODGES, AND SOME CHRYSLER TOWN & COUNTRY VANS. HOWEVER, MY MAKE AND MODEL (08 PATRIOT) IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE EXTENDED WARRANTY THEY ISSUED FOR THE GAS TANKS.

JEEP RECALLED THOSE PART ON ITS 2007 PATRIOTS, BUT NOT ON 2008, DESPITE WHAT SEEMS TO BE SEVERAL COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS CRUCIAL PART RUSTING PREMATURELY. I CONTACTED JEEP AND THEY TOLD ME THE WARRANTY EXPIRED IN 2017 (THE YEAR WE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE) AND THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO. THIS IS A DIRE MATTER OF SAFETY AND IT'S SHAMEFUL THAT JEEP WON'T LIFT A FINGER TO REPLACE THESE PARTS. REPAIR ESTIMATES ARE $1300-1500 FOR A VEHICLE VALUED BY KBB AT LESS THAN $500.

MY MECHANIC TOOK OFF MY TIRE TO FIX THE PARTS AND SAID THAT THE FRAME OR SUB FRAME IS COMPLETELY CORRODED AND UNABLE TO HOLD THE SWAY BAR LINK BECAUSE THERE IS NO PLACE TO ATTACH IT. YESTERDAY I WENT TO THE STORE AND THE NEW AXLE BROKE WHILE DRIVING. VERY UNSAFE AND WHEN I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE IN MAY 2018 I WAS NOT TOLD ABOUT IT. I HAD THE JEEP INSIDE A SHOP TO FIX MY SLAVE CYLINDER IN NOV. 2019 AND A FEW OTHER THINGS AND THEY NEVER EVEN TOLD ME HOW BAD IT LOOKED UNDER THE VEHICLE. I HAVE CALLED JEEP CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WAS TOLD THERE IS NO RECALL ON MY JEEP. BUT WHEN I DID SOME RESEARCH EVERYONE HAS HAD THE SAME ISSUE I AM HAVING.

THIS RESULTS IN MANY, MANY ATTEMPTS TO PUT FUEL INTO THE VEHICLE AND GAS LEAKING OUT OF THE FUEL PUMP DOWN THE SIDE OF THE JEEP AND ALL OVER THE GROUND. MY MECHANIC WAS TRYING TO FIND THE ISSUE AND IN HIS RESEARCH FOUND IT TO BE A KNOWN PROBLEM BUT A NON SERVICEABLE PIECE, MEANING THE ENTIRE FUEL TANK MUST BE REPLACED. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE FAILED AND CREATED AN ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD AND A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD AS WELL.

Summary of Complaint

THIS ISSUE STARTED A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN OUR 2008 JEEP PATRIOT WAS APPROXIMATELY 5 YEARS OLD. ALMOST EVERY TIME WE FILL THE TANK WITH GAS, IMMEDIATELY TO WITHIN THE FIRST COUPLE OF HOURS THE CAR WILL SHUDDER AND STALL, THEN IT HAS A HARD TIME RESTARTING. WE HAVE HAD THE VAPOR PURGE VALVE AND CANISTER CHANGED 3 TIMES WHICH SEEMED TO FIX IT THE FIRST 2 TIMES, BUT ONLY TEMPORARILY. THIS HAS BEEN QUITE DISTURBING SINCE IT HAS STALLED IN TRAFFIC, USUALLY WHEN COMING TO A STOP AT A LIGHT OR TO MAKE A TURN, BUT A COUPLE OF TIMES IT STALLED WHILE DRIVING HOME FROM THE GAS STATION. IT IS USUALLY OK AFTER SITTING OVER NIGHT, BUT IT HAS HAD THE SAME ISSUE THE FOLLOWING DAY A FEW TIMES. NONE OF THE DEALERSHIPS OR REPAIR SHOPS THAT WE HAVE TALKED TO SEEM TO HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE ISSUE COULD BE. I HAVE FOUND THAT NOT TOPPING OFF THE TANK FULLY, THE ISSUE SEEMS TO OCCUR MUCH LESS OFTEN, BUT THE FEAR OF IT STALLING WHILE DRIVING IS CONSTANT, AND IS STILL A MAJOR ISSUE TO THIS DAY.

AFTER FILLING UP MY GAS TANK THIS MORNING, MY CAR SPUTTERED AND STALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION IMMEDIATELY AFTER I LEFT GAS STATION. I WAS YIELDING TO TURN LEFT TO ENTER THE NORTHBOUND LANES OF I-69. I HAVE HAD THIS ISSUE FOR QUITE AWHILE NOW AND MY MECHANIC HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND AN ISSUE SINCE IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I FILL UP THE GAS TANK. I DECIDED THIS MORNING TO LOOK FOR OTHER JEEP OWNERS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM AND FOUND A FORUM THAT DATES BACK TO OVER 3 YEARS AGO WITH PEOPLE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. APPARENTLY, THEIR FINDINGS HAVE LED TO THE GAS TANK NEEDING TO BE REPLACED IN PART TO A FAULTY PART THAT SITS ON/IN THE GAS TANK. IN THE PAST, I'VE HAD TO TIME TRAFFIC LIGHTS IN ORDER TO MAKE IT THROUGH WITHOUT STALLING BUT OBVIOUSLY THAT DIDN'T WORK TODAY. TYPICALLY, THIS IS ONLY AN ISSUE WHEN I'M DRIVING AT SLOWER SPEEDS OR IN STOP/GO TRAFFIC. ALSO, THE STEERING WHEEL LOCKS UP AND IS VERY HARD TO TURN TO GET OUT OF THE WAY OF TRAFFIC. OFTEN TIMES, THE JEEP DOESN'T START RIGHT AWAY. YOU HAVE TO REV THE ENGINE AND THEN PUT IN DRIVE QUICKLY AND TAKE OFF OR IT STALLS AGAIN. IN THE FORUM, SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE TRIED TO REPLACE PARTS FOR QUICK FIXES WITHOUT ANY SUCCESS. THIS SHOULD OBVIOUSLY BE SOMETHING THE CAR MAKERS SHOULD FIX WITHOUT PASSING THE COST ALONG TO THE OWNER.

VEHICLE HAS A RECURRING PROBLEM WHEN DRIVING EXTENDED DISTANCES OR IN HILLY AREAS, THE TRANSMISSION WILL BEGIN WHINING AND TRANSMISSION TEMPERATURE WARNING LIGHT WILL TURN ON, VEHICLE WILL THEN LOSE POWER AND WILL HAVE TO BE PULLED OVER ONTO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE IT COOLS DOWN ENOUGH TO DRIVE ANOTHER TEN MINUTES. AFTER HAVING IT EXAMINED BY A MECHANIC, I WAS INFORMED THAT THIS IS A RECURRING ISSUE WITH THE 2005-2010 JEEP PATRIOTS EQUIPPED WITH CVT TRANSMISSIONS AND REQUIRES A COMPLETE TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT, AND THAT IF IT IS REPLACED WITH THE SAME TRANSMISSION, I CAN EXPECT THE SAME ISSUE LATER ON.

Summary of Complaint

IN AUGUST OF 2018 I HAVE MY CAR IN THE DEALERSHIP GETTING A REAR WHEEL BEARING, CV AXLE CHANGED OUT. THIS YEAR I HAD IT IN THE DEALERSHIP AGAIN FOR THE SAME ISSUE BUT DIFFERENT REAR WHEEL BEARING. DEALERSHIP INFORMED ME THEN THAT MY VEHICLE CROSS MEMBERS & SUB FRAME IN BOTH FRONT & REAR NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AND QUOTED ME ACCORDINGLY. I FEEL THAT THE SUB FRAMES & CROSS MEMBERS HAVE BEEN RUSTY SINCE I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE USED FROM THIS DEALERSHIP IN 2015. WHEN I FOUND INFORMATION ON THE X69 EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR THIS EXACT RUST ISSUE, I FEEL THAT I HAVE BEEN TAKEN A FOOL THAT THE DEALERSHIP NEGLECTED TO ALERT ME IN 2018 WHEN MY WARRANTY EXPIRED AT THE END OF THE YEAR, JUST TO BRING IT UP AGAIN IN 2019 TO MAKE A BUCK. I CONTACTED CHRYSLER AS WELL (6-3-19). THEY FEIGNED THEIR VIP SYSTEM WAS DOWN AND COULDN'T LOOK UP DEALERSHIP INFO??? THEY SAID THEY WOULD CALL ME BACK AND EVEN HAD MY CONTACT INFORMATION ON HAND (HOW CAN THEY HAVE THAT INFO JUST FROM ME NAME OR VIN?) CHRYSLER STILL HASN'T CALLED ME BACK. I AM PISSED ABOUT THIS.

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE HAS SERIOUS ELECTRICAL ISSUES WHICH STEM MAINLY FROM CORRODING WIRES. I'VE HAD IT AT 3 DIFFERENT MECHANICS, & 2 DIFFERENT DEALERSHIPS ALL FOR THEM TO TELL ME EITHER THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT OR THAT THEY CAN JUST START REPLACING WIRES & HOPE FOR THE BEST BASICALLY EVEN THOUGH IT ISN'T WORTH PUTTING THE MONEY INTO AT THIS POINT. THE ELECTRICAL HAS EFFECTED MY BATTERIE (I'VE HAD TO REPLACE 3 BATTERIES IN THE LAST 2 YEARS), AT THIS POINT I HAVE TO HAVE IT ON A BATTERY CHARGER 24/7 WHEN IT ISN'T RUNNING BECAUSE THE IT JUST DRAINS MY BATTERY & WON'T START, 4WD SOMETIMES IT WORKS BUT SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T, AIR CONDITIONING, ENTIRE COMPUTER SYSTEM (WHEN I'D SHUT THE VEHICLE OFF & PULL THE KEY OUT, IT'D STILL BE RUNNING UNTIL IT FINALLY CHOKED ITSELF OUT). I'VE $3,000 INTO THE NEW COMPUTER, $1,000 INTO CORRODING WIRES, & NUMBER NEW BATTERIES AS WELL. AT THIS POINT IT'S A LOST CAUSE. EVERY MACHENIC I'VE SPOKE WITH STATES THAT THESE ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS ARE EXTREMELY COMMON WITH JEEP PATRIOT, COMPAS, & COMMANDERS. THEY RECOMMEND FOR PEOPLE NOT TO PURCHASE THEM.

Summary of Complaint

BRIEF SUMMARY: I PURCHASED THE 2008 PATRIOT IN 2014 WITH 70K MILES. FIRST OCCURANCE OF VEHICLE STALLING AND SHUTTING OFF OCCURED IN 2015 WITH 80K MILES; WHEN THE THROTTLE BODY LIGHT/ ESP BEGAN FLASHING AND SPUTTERED A FEW SECONDS BEFORE IT SHUT OFF WHILE IN MOTION. THE VEHICLE RESTARTED WITH IN 10 MINUTES. I HAD THE THROTTLE BODY AND GASKET REPAIRED. SINCE THEN THERE HAS BEEN OTHER RANDOM OCCASIONS OF STALLING WHERE THE THROTTLE LIGHT/ ESP AND ENGINE LIGHT FLASHES PRECEDDING A STALL. NOW 2018-19 (107K MILES) I WENT IN FOR DIAGNOSIS BECAUSE MY CAR STALLED AGIN THIS TIME WAS IN BUSY TRAFFIC AND THROTTLE LIGHT, ESP LIGHTS, ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON BEFORE THE ENGINE SHUT OFF. I HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT THERE IS A CRANKSHAFT ISSUE THAT CAUSES THE ENGINE LIGHT TO COME ON AND STALL THE VEHICLE INTERMITTENTLY. I HAD CRANKSHAFT REPLACED THE SPARK PLUGS CHANGED, THE THROTTLE BODY CLEANED AND THE ELECTICAL HARNESSES SERVICED TO YET HAVE THE SAME ISSUE OCCUR WHEN THE VEHICLE STALLED 24 HRS AFTER REPAIRS. THE ENGINE, THROTTLEBODY AND ESP LIGHTS CAME ON AGAIN WITH IN 24 HOURS BEFORE SHUTTING OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY INTERSECTION OF TRAFFIC. I AM NOW HAVING A 3RD INDEPENDENT MECHANIC LOOK INTO THE ISSUE AND SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELSE THAT COULD BE CAUSING THE INTERMITTENT STALLING. I SPOKE WITH JEEP CUSTOMER CARE AND THEY STATED THAT MY PARTICULAR VIN DOESN'T HAVE A RECALL ALTHOUGH OTHER PATRIOTS OF THE SAME CLASS HAVE HAD SAME OCCURENCE AND RECALL YET THERE IS NOTHING THAT THEY CAN DO FOR ME IN THIS CASE TO ADDRESS THE SAFETY ISSUE OR REPAIRS SINCE I AM OUT OF WARRANTY. I STRONGLY RECCOMMEND THAT THE DOT INVESTIGATE THIS MATTER AND REQUIRE JEEP TO EITHER RECALL THE VEHICLE OR REQUIRE JEEP TO REPAIR THESE VEHICLES TO SAFE PERFORMANCE ON THE ROADS AND/OR REFUND ME THE PURCHASE PRICE AS I AM STILL IN CONTRACT PAYING FOR A NON FUNCTIONAL RISKY VEHICLE. *JS

Summary of Complaint

EACH TIME AFTER FUELING UP THE VEHICLE, IT STALLS OUT. THIS HAS HAPPENED TWICE WITHIN A WEEK OF EACH OTHER ON A CITY STREET AFTER LEAVING THE GAS STATION. THE FIRST TIME MY FOOT WAS ON THE BRAKE AND THE CAR STALLED OUT. THE NEXT TIME THE CAR WAS IN MOTION AND STALLED. THIS IS A FRIGHTENING AND COMMONLY CITED ISSUE WITH PATRIOT OWNERS.
