2017 JEEP RENEGADE WITH 42,000 MILES HAS FAULTY IGNITION COILS, CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO MISFIRE, AND STALL WHILE DRIVING. AFTER OUR JEEP RENEGADE STARTED RUNNING ROUGH AND MISFIRING, I STARTED RESEARCHING POSSIBLE ISSUES. SHORTLY AFTER THIS THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT INDICATED A PROBLEM, WHICH DISABLED THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE IN THE VEHICLE DURING A SNOWSTORM HERE. UPON PULLING THE CEL CODE, WE FOUND A MISFIRE IN CYLINDER 2 AND REPLACED THE SPARK PLUGS AS THIS IS A TYPICAL SOLUTION TO MINOR IGNITION ISSUES. UPON REPLACEMENT, I NOTICED ONE PLUG WAS BADLY FOULED AND CORRODED WITH ANOTHER HAVING SLIGHT FOULING. AFTER REPLACEMENT OF THE SPARK PLUGS, THE VEHICLE ACTED OK FOR ABOUT AN HOUR THEN STARTED MISFIRING AGAIN. WE SWAPPED THE 2 AND 4 COIL WITH EACH OTHER RESULTING IN THE MISFIRE MOVING TO CYLINDER 4. THIS LEXUS TO REPLACE THE IGNITION COILS SOLVING THE ISSUE. THIS VEHICLE HAS LESS THAN 50,000 MILES ON IT, AND UPON FURTHER RESEARCH WE ARE FINDING THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE RENEGADE IGNITION COILS FAILING PREMATURELY CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO MISFIRE AND STALL. THIS IS A POTENTIAL LIFE THREATENING ISSUE BECAUSE IF THE VEHICLE STALLS WHILE DRIVING COULD VERY LIKELY CAUSE ACCIDENTS. ADDITIONALLY THE FAILURE OF THE 4WD WITH ACEL PUTS THE DRIVER AT FURTHER RISK OF BEING STUCK OR CAUSING A WRECK WHEN THE VEHICLE DOES NOT PERFORM AS EXPECTED.

While driving on a busy freeway the car started violently jerking to the left. I slowed and moved to the right lane as the jerking became more and more frequent. By the time I made it to the next exit the car had become difficult to control. As I took the next exit the power steering failed completely. I've had the car to the dealership and a second mechanic. both say it is a failure of the Electronic Control Unit and the steering column needs to be replaced. I barely managed to get the car off the freeway. I hate to think what could have happened had this occurred on a twisty road rather then a fairly straight stretch of freeway. I had no warning. first indication of the problem was the car jerking to the left. Warning lights didn't come on till power steering failed about a mile down the road.

I have experienced innumerable incidents where my car jolts while I am driving. I have had passengers describe it as if the engine is stalling for a second or the transmission is failing and then instantly recovering. The best I can describe the feeling is as if the car hiccups. It occurs at least once a week, sometimes multiple times a day. It is intermittent and unpredictable. It has occurred at a variety of speeds, on surface street, freeways, etc. Also at varying temperatures throughout the day. I believe it only occurs during acceleration, not while breaking. I bought the car new and have taken it into the Jeep dealership but they did not find anything because the issue did not occur on their test drive. A few weeks ago, my engine was replaced due to a separate recall and I had hoped that it would simultaneously fix this problem but it has continued to happen, if not at the same rate then more frequently. As of yet, there have been no accidents caused by it but it makes me feel uneasy and distrustful of my vehicle. I fear for my safety and those around me if the issue worsens.

I was driving in right lane,40-45MPH, heard a very loud bang (not a tire), front end of jeep lifted UP, then began veering to the right heading off the road. I was unable to break or turn steering. Next thing, I woke up from being knocked out, hit a pole, 3 witnesses heard the bang as well - one witness told police, all 3 air bags went off. Emergency services were summoned. Car totaled. Pole is still standing upright. Fortunately I did not die or get seriously injured. Emergency services said if I had hit the tree next to pole, the outcome of my injuries would have been totally different. Car was towed to auto repair center and they had never seen collision damage such as this. Insurance company notified. Police report made at time of accident.no driver citations. a few days later I contacted jeep company, told them they needed to send someone out to look at this damage, because someone is going to die! They had a third party come out to the collision repair shop and get black box information/examined vehicle. A few days later, I received a carefully worded letter from Jeep that they saw NO SUSPENSION or STEERING issues to be the reason for the accident. Only the BANG, VEHICLE UPLIFT ON RIGHT SIDE, HITTING POLE. NO warning lights were on. This car was purchased new in 2/2018. I just hit the 30,000 miles, new tires on vehicle for 3 months and had only 2,000 miles of usage on them. The vehicle was in excellent condition and always maintained 100%. Even the Farmer's Insurance inspector stated car was in showroom condition. Rim broke in half along inner seam, no blowout evidence, tie rod broke in half, ball joint shaft inside of the knuckle (broke inside of it), pivot still in lower control arm. Have photos/police report/pics. NO OTHER VEHICLES INVOLVED. HUSBAND HAD TO HELP TOW TRUCK DRIVER SLIDE THE SUSPENSION UNDER VEHICLE TO TOW IT. I can send upon request insurance company docs and letter from JEEP upon request.

I have a 2017 Jeep Renegade. The engine needs to be completely replaced due to faulty manufactured engine. It would randomly turn off or stall, or sometimes engine kept turning and wouldn’t start. The bearings broke off inside the engine and now JEEP is trying NOT to cover it and I can’t get any help after speaking to 7 diff Case Managers. There has been zero help from them in regards to their liability in this. There is already a class action lawsuit filed, in 2020. It is sad that they are handling clients this way. I was very nice and I work in customer service so I understand what is possible etc. The Jeep mechanic locally , called on my case to verify and tell them that my engine needs to be replaced as a direct correlation of the recalled parts and that they were on back order for months. During those months I tried to have recalled parts replaced and couldn’t because the parts are on back order. During this time my warranty became invalid, because I exceeded 60,000 miles. I’m currently at 62,000 miles. At the time I attempted to have recalls fixed I was under 60,000 miles. Secondly the warranty expires In 2022. Regardless , the recalls caused the engine needing to be replaced. Please advise what my options are to ensure I don’t have to pay to replace the whole engine. Thank you

The cable for the hood latch snapped. This is an issue because if the vehicle breaks down at the side of the road or needs a jump start in a lot etc, the hood will not open. This can cause risk of exposure as well as prolonged stay on the shoulder of the road. Mechanic at Autonation reported that he has seen this issue with multiple Jeep Renegades, which is alarming. No lights or indications are made by the vehicle informing owner of the issue.

We brought the car for the second appointment to complete the mopar W80 recall which was supposed to be done after 1500 miles from the first service. The tech TJ from Autonation Chrysler, Jeep Ram in Katy Texas told me on 07/28/21 that our car was the first car that had come up that was consuming oil and that he thought the engine needed to be replaced. He said the request had been sent to mopar for approval. On 07/29/21 he called and stated that mopar had instructed that since we went 400 miles above the 1500 miles required for the second appointment, that we needed to drive it for another 1500 miles and bring it back. The tech confirmed the engine is consuming oil, we are told we are past 400 miles but asked to go another 1500 miles before the issue is addressed. This places my family and my daughter who drives this car at risk. Hope you can help address the situation.

My vehicle has suddenly shown warning lights for brake light out, head light out, both turn signals out, running lights out. Basically saying all my lights suddenly burnt out. There is a recall on 2017 Jeep renegades for the exact problem I’m having but it doesn’t show my vehicle included, it says no unrepaired recalls. They have determined this can cause an accident as the lights are not really out, and so the driver has no idea when the lights actually do go out. This is dangerous

I NEVER HAD IT LOOKED AT, I DISCONNECTED THE BATTERY AND THEN IT WOULD GO AWAY. ALSO THE CAR COMPLETELY STOPPED TURNING OFF FROM ACCESSORY POWER MODE. I COULDN'T JUST ROLL DOWN THE WINDOWS, I HAD TO CRANK THE CAR OR THE POWER WOULDN'T TURN BACK OFF. RECENTLY HAD CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WITH CODE P0807 'CLUTCH POSITION SENSOR CIRCUIT 1 LOW' SHOWING. THE NEXT DAY, CAR WAS DIFFICULT TO START. IT TOOK SEVERAL TRIES PUSHING THE START BUTTON AND MESSING WITH CLUTCH BEFORE IT WOULD TURN OVER. I TOOK IT TO A SHOP (NOT DEALER) AND THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING OR REPLICATE THE CODES AND TOLD ME IT WAS A GLITCH. NEXT DAY I GET THE EPB LIGHT AGAIN AND USED MY CODE READER AND IT WAS SHOWING P0807 AND ABS CODE C1220-86. SO I LOCATED SAID SWITCH AND UNPLUGGED IT, AND BOOM. ALL THE PROBLEM CODES POPPED UP AGAIN AND I WAS ABLE TO TURN THE CAR OFF LIKE NORMAL. I REMOVED THE SENSOR AND OPENED THE COVER ON IT. THE CARBON FILM INSIDE WAS MISSING A SECTION. TESTED WITH A METER AND THE SENSOR LOST VOLTAGE WHEN SWEEP ARM INSIDE REACHED THE BROKEN SPOT. THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT COULD LEAVE YOU STRANDED SOMEWHERE IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE THE TOOLS TO REACH AND JUMP OUT THIS SENSOR. AND OF COURSE CLUTCH PARTS ARE NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY. EVEN THOUGH THIS IS AN OBVIOUS FACTORY DEFECT SEEING AS IT'S ON THE INSIDE OF A SENSOR THAT I COULDN'T REACH WITHOUT REMOVING THE PANEL UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL.
