Summary of Complaint

I have a 2015 Jeep Wrangler with the Fiat Chrysler's 3.6 liter V- 6 Pentastar engine. The Jeep has only 44,465 miles on it and now has apparent design and manufacturing defects on the engine's left side , its the Pentastar Tick. The Tick Tick Tick is very loud and the engine will shudder, its only a matter of time before the engine shuts off on the highway when I am driving causing an accident. My dealer Hollywood Chrysler Jeep estimated repairs - need left side cams and full set of rockers - oil filter housing is leaking replace - replace abs sensor - coolant flush - carbon fuel cleaning -fluids service total $6,000.07 invoice # 584685. It looks like the cylinder head, gasket, cams, lifters and rockers need to be replaced. Chrysler needs to disclose these defects. Yes my jeep is available for inspection.

Summary of Complaint

The manual shifting lever for the manual transmission came loose in my hand while driving and rotated freely preventing me from shifting into the proper gear. This occurred while shifting from 1st to 2nd gear while negotiating a corner. The vehicle was unable to be shifted into gear and I ended up blocking the traffic in the intersection. Very dangerous loosing the ability to move forward in a controlled manner at an intersection. This particular intersection was a "round about". Doing a little research online I found many of the same complaints. It seems that a rubber bushing fails and results in a loss of shifting ability. Poor design!

Summary of Complaint

Air bag light is on intermittently. Running checks throughout my 2015 Jeep Wrangler, the issue resides in a faulty clockspring. After doing research it appears Chrysler/Jeep issued a recall for RHD Jeep Wranglers on faulty clockspring due to dust contamination. Looking over several Wrangler forums, the issue doesn't reside in just the RHD Jeep Wranglers, but also LHD Jeep Wranglers as well. The part is interchangeable for RHD and LHD Jeep Wranglers. I would assume more LHD Jeep Wranglers are manufactured as to the reason the recall wasn't pushed to LHD Jeep Wranglers to keep costs down.

Summary of Complaint

APOLOGIES IF THIS COMPLAINT IS A REPEAT, BUT I KEEP GETTING A SUBMISSION ERROR NOTICE WHENEVER I TRY TO SUBMIT THIS FORM. THE JEEP 4.0 LITER SIX CYLINDER ENGINE HAS A KNOWN DEFECT WITH RESPECT TO THE ROCKER ARM BEARINGS THAT CAUSES A LOUD TICKING NOISE IN THE ENGINE AND FAILURE OF THE EXHAUST AND INTAKE CAMSHAFTS. THIS HAPPENED TO OUR 2015 JEEP IN JANUARY 2020 WHEN IT HAD ONLY 31,000 MILES BUT WAS ONE MONTH OUT OF WARRANTY. CHRYSLER DID FIX IT AT THAT TIME AS A COURTESY SUBJECT TO A $100 FEE, AND A COPY OF THE INVOICE FOR THAT REPAIR IS PROVIDED. UNFORTUNATELY, A LITTLE OVER ONE YEAR LATER, AND WITH LESS THAN 10,000 MILES HAVING BEEN DRIVEN SINCE THE INITIAL REPAIR, THE SAME PROBLEM HAS REAPPEARED. THE DEALER IS NOW CLAIMING THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE REMAINING ROCKERS THAT WERE NOT REPLACED, AS IT IS CHRYSLER'S POLICY TO ONLY REPLACE THE ROCKER ARMS AND CAMSHAFTS THAT ARE DAMAGED AT THAT TIME. THE SERVICE MANAGER AT THE DEALER SAYS THAT THEY "SEE THIS ALL THE TIME" AND THAT THEY TRY TO GET ALL THE ROCKER ARMS REPLACED WHEN DOING ANY REPAIRS, BUT CHRYSLER DOES NOT ALLOW THEM TO DO SO. OF COURSE, CHRYSLER IS NOW REFUSING TO COVER THE REPAIRS, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIXED THE FIRST TIME. THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE, AND CHRYSLER SHOULD BE FORCED TO DO A FULL RECALL OF ALL AFFECTED ENGINES AND PAY FOR ALL REQUIRED REPAIRS. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM ONLINE, YET CHRYSLER STILL REFUSES TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM.

THIS WAS CAUSING MY ENGINE TO NOT BE ABLE TO ACCELERATE BEYOND 70 MPH. THEY CHANGED THE SENSOR, BUT AGAIN, WAS UNABLE TO GO OVER 70, AND ON AN INCLINE WOULD DROP DOWN TO 60 AND COULD GO NO FASTER (NO ENGINE LIGHT THIS TIME). NEXT DAY GOT IT UP TO 78, ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON, AND AGAIN COULD NOT ACCELERATE BEYOND 75.

Summary of Complaint

OIL COOLER ASSEMBLY HAS STARTED LEAKING BADLY AFTER 60,000 MILES AND IS A FIRE HAZARD. THIS ASSEMBLY IS TOO FRAGILE AND REQUIRES TAKING OFF THE INTAKE MANIFOLD TO ACCESS AND REPLACE, SO IT SHOULD NOT BE A PLASTIC PART. IT CONTAINS THE OIL FILTER WHICH CAUSES IT TO HAVE TORQUE APPLIED EVERY OIL CHANGE AND CAUSES IT TO BREAK PREMATURELY. THIS IS VERY COMMON PROBLEM AND I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALER THAT THERE WERE 25,000 OF THESE ASSEMBLIES ON BACK ORDER NATIONWIDE AND HE COULD NOT TELL ME WHEN IT WOULD BE IN STOCK. MY JEEP IS NOW UNDRIVEABLE UNTIL THE BACKLOG IS WORKED THROUGH WHICH MAY TAKE MONTHS. IF THIS WAS A RARE PROBLEM I COULD GET THE PART AND HAVE IT REPAIRED. THIS PROBLEM HAS RENDERED MY VEHICLE UNUSABLE. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND JEEP HAS KNOWN ABOUT THIS ISSUE FOR YEARS ON MULTIPLE YEAR MODELS. PLEASE INVESTIGATE. THERE IS NO REASON THIS COULDN'T HAVE BEEN PROPERLY ENGINEERED WITH A METAL PART.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING, THE VEHICLE LOSES PROPULSION; THE RPMS GO TO ZERO FOR ABOUT 3 SECONDS AND THEN RETURN TO NORMAL AND ACCELERATION IS REGAINED. NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT OR CODE IS GIVEN. THIS OCCURRED RANDOMLY FOR THE LAST YEAR. IN JUNE OF 2020 I TOOK IT TO JEEP DEALER WHO WAS NOT ABLE TO REPLICATE THE PROBLEM AND SAID THAT NO CODE WAS GIVEN. THEN IN DECEMBER OF 2020 THE ISSUE BECAME WORSE TO WHERE THE VEHICLE WOULD COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN AND NOT REGAIN POWER UNLESS RESTARTED. ON ONE OCCASION IT WOULD NOT RESTART, LEAVING ME STRANDED. I TOOK IT TO AN INDEPENDENT MECHANIC WHO ALSO COULD NOT REPLICATE THE PROBLEM. THE INDEPENDENT MECHANIC SUGGESTED THAT THE SYMPTOMS SOUND LIKE THEY ARE RELATED TO A FUEL PUMP RELAY, BUT THAT PART IS NOT REPLACEABLE ON MY JEEP. THEY SAID THAT OTHER CHRYSLER VEHICLES HAVE HAD RECALLS FOR SIMILAR PROBLEMS, BUT NOT MY YEAR MODEL JEEP. THE PROBLEM CONTINUES TO PERSIST RANDOMLY. SOMETIMES IT HAPPENS TWICE WITHIN AN HOUR, SOMETIMES NOT AT ALL. WHEN IT HAPPENS IT'S ALWAYS IN MOTION. ON JANUARY 16TH I VIDEO RECORDED THE INCIDENT WHILE DRIVING. I HAVE THE ENTIRE THING ON VIDEO THAT I CAN SHARE WITH YOU. IN THE VIDEO YOU CAN SEE THAT I'M DRIVING AT A STEADY SPEED AT 2500 RPMS. THEN THE RPMS FLASH QUICKLY TO 3500 RPMS AND THEN INSTANTLY DROP TO ZERO, AS THOUGH THE IGNITION HAD BEEN TURNED OFF. ALTHOUGH I STILL HAVE ELECTRICAL, AS MY RADIO AND BLINKERS ARE WORKING, THE JEEP VERY QUICKLY LOSES POWER STEERING. IF I HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO QUICKLY PULL OFF THE HIGHWAY MY JEEP WOULD HAVE BEEN DEAD AND STRANDED IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY HIGHWAY. I THEN ATTEMPTED TO RESTART THE JEEP, BUT IT WOULD NOT START. I WOULD TURN THE KEY JUST ONCE AND LET GO, BUT THE JEEP WOULD CONTINUE TRYING TO START OVER AND OVER FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS BEFORE STOPPING. I WAS UNABLE TO START THE JEEP UNTIL WAITING FOR A PERIOD OF ABOUT 10 MINUTES. THEN IT STARTED UP AND OPERATED NORMALLY.

I DID MY RESEARCH AND CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MILEAGE BUT MORE SO ON HOW THE ENGINE WAS BUILT. I SPOKE TO NUMBER OF DEALERSHIPS AND THEY FIX THIS COMMON PROBLEM ON ALL AGES AND MILEAGE WRANGLERS. THE ESTIMATED COST OF REPAIR WOULD RANGE FROM $2000 AND UP.
