Summary of Complaint

FCA (JEEP CHRYSLER) HAS ISSUED A NOTIFICATION TO OWNERS VIA V88: "THE REAR QUARTER WINDOWS VERTICAL RETAINER ON YOUR VEHICLE MAY NOT BE PROPERLY INSTALLED TO THE DOOR RAIL AFTER REMOVAL. THIS CONDITION MAY CAUSE THE SOFT TOP REAR QUARTER WINDOW PANELS TO SEPARATE FROM THE VEHICLE WHILE DRIVING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS." THIS VERY SITUATION ACTUALLY OCCURRED IN OUR VEHICLE WHILE DRIVING AT HIGH SPEED (I.E. THE SPEED LIMIT) ON I95 IN VIRGINIA ON 3/3/20. WITHOUT ANY WARNING, THE REAR QUARTER PANEL BLEW OUT ONTO THE HIGHWAY. THE NOISE WAS SO STARTLING, IT IS AMAZING THE DRIVER WAS ABLE TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. ALSO, NO OTHER MOTORIST WAS IMPACTED BY THE DISLODGED WINDOW (THIS TIME). HOWEVER, AS THIS WAS IN THE EVENING ON A HIGH-SPEED INTERSTATE, IT WAS NOT SAFE TO PULL OVER AND TRY TO RETRIEVE THE WINDOW FROM THE DRIVING LANES SO, WE ARE NOT CERTAIN THAT THE DISLODGED WINDOW DID NOT THEN PRESENT A POTENTIAL ROAD HAZARD TO OTHER MOTORISTS. HERE IS THE LINK TO THE FCA V88 NOTICE: HTTPS://WWW.CHRYSLER.COM/UNIVERSAL/WEBSELFSERVICE/PDF/V88.PDF I AM TRYING TO SEEK REIMBURSEMENT FROM FCA TO REPLACE THE WINDOW BUT THEY REFUSE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE INCIDENT. THE GREATER CONCERN IS THAT IT COULD HAPPEN TO US AGAIN AND, MORE THAN LIKELY, WILL HAPPEN TO MANY OTHER DRIVERS OF SIMILAR VEHICLES. I SUSPECT NOT ALL CASES WILL HAVE OUTCOMES WHERE NO ONE WILL BE INJURED (OR KILLED).

Summary of Complaint

WHEN DRIVING ON ANY TYPE OF ROAD, THE JEEP WANDERS ALL OVER THE LANE AND TAKES CONSTANT STEERING WHEEL INPUT TO MAINTAIN THE VEHICLE IN ITS LANE. THE FASTER THE SPEED ABOVE 30, THE WORSE THE CONDITION IS. THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF PLAY IN THE STEERING WHEEL AT NORMAL SPEEDS ALMOST LIKE IT IS NOT CONNECTED. IT IS VERY TIRING TO DRIVE ON THE EXPRESSWAY BECAUSE IT NEEDS CONSTANT COURSE CORRECTION. SEVERAL TIMES IT HAS WANDERED OFF OF A ROAD SHOULDER ON ITS OWN. WE HAVE HAD OVER 17 VEHICLES OVER THE YEARS AND THIS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT BEHAVES THIS WAY. AT TIMES IT FEELS VERY, VERY UNSAFE, SCARY AND TIRING TO DRIVE. JUST FEELS LIKE SOMETHING IS EXTREMELY WRONG WITH THE STEERING AND IT IS NOT TRUSTWORTHY AND MAY CAUSE AN ACCIDENT.

Summary of Complaint

The contact owns a 2018 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that the vehicle was parked in the garage for 10 days. The contact stated that as he opened the garage door, he saw smoke. The contact looked around but he could not determine the cause of the failure. The contact stated that he opened the hood of the vehicle and noticed that the fuse box and the fuse wires had burned. There were no injuries sustained. A police report was not filed. The independent mechanic arrived to the contact's residence and diagnosed that the fuse box and the fuse wires had burned. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnosis. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and sent an investigator who diagnosed the vehicle. The manufacturer sent a letter to the contact stating that based on the investigator report, no issues were found and the failure was not a manufacturer defect. The dealer informed the contact that the fuse box and fuse wires needed to be replaced and he would be responsible for the cost of the repair. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 1,100.

Summary of Complaint

My Jeep has began to shake violently on two recent occasions 11/18 and 11/23 at highway speeds. I tracked back to see if something was in the road, but all I found was a small imperfection about 1 inch tall in the road seam. The vehicle began to shake so violently that it took all I could do to keep from colliding with neighboring cars. The internet calls this “death wobble “ and it was supposed to be repaired by the dealer under recall. I had the work completed over a year ago and the vehicle is still affected.

Summary of Complaint

My Steering wheel keeps locking up and I am unable to turn the wheel. My power steering fluid is fine cause I had it checked. The only way to unlock the steering wheel is to step in the brake. I believe it has something to do with the power steering pump. I have set up an appointment with Jeep for service. I recently had my jeep inspected and it passed. No warning lights have come up. It’s a very scary experience as I almost got into an accident as I was not able to turn the wheel until I stepped on the brake.

Summary of Complaint

I was driving to work at approximately 7:50 am when the outside ambient temperature was below freezing (approximately 30 degrees Fahrenheit). The vehicle was operating normally until I came to a long, sweeping, and gradual curve on a road that I take every day to get to work. As I entered this curve to the right, driving at approximately 60mph, my steering locked up causing the Jeep to drift into the other lane of traffic. After 2-3 seconds of steering lock, the wheel released and I was able to jerk the vehicle back into my lane. Normal operation resumed, until I came to a similar curve, just up the road, when the lockup happened again. Again, the curve was long, sweeping, and gradual, and I was driving at approximately 60mph.

This morning while taking my Jeep to work, the steering was locked up on me. I had roughly 15 degrees of movement on either side. I had to take a turn and use every bit of my strength to turn the Jeep until I could physically feel my steering loosen up and then drove normal. I always use my remote start and let it warm up before driving on cold mornings. It doesn't have any mods on it either that aren't from Jeep.

Summary of Complaint

I have had an issue since the vehicle was 6 months old, When applying the brakes, the pedal is low (half way to the floor), not a good feeling. When I do a quick pump, the pedal comes up to safe, responsive level and I get a good safe stop. I don't tow much, but i occasionally tow a small boat, I then don't feel safe at all. I have had it in to the dealer no less than 6 times for the issue and they claim all is ok. I have also paid to have an independent shop look at it and they do find it a problem and even a fix as when they pinched off the front hoses, the pedal was right up top. The last time at the dealer I was told that Jeep does realize that they have an issue but cannot supply replacement parts as they are needed for the cars being built...PLEASE HELP!

Summary of Complaint

The Uconnect (Infotainment System) screen in our vehicle has suffered from delamination. The delamination between the two parts of the screen has resulted in persistent "ghost touching". This is where the screen acts as if it has been touched even though it has not. This ghost touching is sporadic and volatile and results in a very large distraction for the driver. On more than one instance this distraction has almost led to a collision. At one point the touch screen started to self dial SOS and would not respond to the initial attempts to hang up, causing the driver to be distracted and almost cause a collision. This is a known problem affecting multiple FCA vehicles where they have chosen to not recall or support the replacement of the faulty part. This issue can endanger the vehicle driver and others on the road way.

Summary of Complaint

In July 2021 our 19 year old daughter was driving our 2018 Rubicon on a trip 2 hours or so from home when all of the dash warning lights came on speedometer was lost . Panicked she asked us what to do? We told her to take it to the closest Jeep dealership (Ladd-Hanford DCJR) to see if the vehicle was safe to drive. She was told it just needed an oil change and it was safe to drive. About 10 days later my wife was driving the vehicle and the same thing happened. The vehicle was taken to our local dealer where they tried to diagnose, unable to duplicate the problem it was returned to us. We returned about 10 days later same lights coming on, this time power steering was lost. Dealership worked with Chrysler engineering and determined that the ABS module needed replaced. Work completed and Jeep was picked up. About 10 days later dash warning lights on, speedometer display out, power steering lost, back to dealership. Unable to look at at that time appointment made and returned. It is now September 30th we have cases opened with Chrysler and Mopar Warrantee. Vehicle is still at the dealership, diagnosis is now a $2000.00 chaffed wiring harness just outside the fuse box not covered by anybody. No guarantee that this will fix it. Neither will put anything in writing. I have tried to be patient, we need our vehicle. I do not feel that my family or others are safe when it pertains to this vehicle. I don't want it to be involved in an accident that could cause serious injury or death.

Summary of Complaint

I was in my car at a gas station and the car had shut down with ABS light, check engine light. The car would not start up with push to start. The shifter also was locked into place when the car eventually ended up starting. 5 mins later the car finally started up and all the of the warning lights/messages went away. I received an oil change + inspection from a dealership and nothing was found. This same problem happened again in a parking lot, (ABS, check engine, car not turning on) and I took my car to the dealership for service. They performed an inspection and I was told the ABS module needed to be replaced. About a week later I picked up my car from the dealership after they told me they fixed the issue and my car was good to go. THE SAME DAY, I had the same problem except this time it was significantly worse and extremely dangerous for myself and others. This time, WHILE driving my "serviced" vehicle, the ABS light, check engine light came on, dashboard stopped working, and the steering wheel also had locked while DRIVING and I was unable to turn. I was extremely terrified and I immediately pulled the car over. After multiple attempts to start the car (same issue as before: car would not start, ABS/check engine light) I promptly took the vehicle to the dealership again. The dealership is charging me again for another inspection, hours after their service? It seems that they are using this as an opportunity to make money, rather than actually fix the issue with the vehicle. This should not be about money, this is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. The service the dealership has provided not only endangered my life, but the lives of others around me. I am extremely fortunate that this did not happen on the freeway. The dealer did not fix the problem, and in fact made the car dangerous with some of these new issues, the steering wheel locking up and the disabled dashboard. The part they replaced did not fix my car and put me, as well as others in a DANGEROUS situation.

Summary of Complaint

Coming back from a mini vacation we stopped at a gas station to refuel. Could smell something burning but was not sure from where it was coming from. 45 minutes later we hard a loud pop and rpm’s went up. Clutch went completely out. Was barely able to pull it off the highway and into a gas station. Had to cut cars off due to not being able to put the jeep in gear to get rolling again. I’m three hours away from my home. Had just took the jeep to the dealer for service and was told EVERYTHING LOOKED GOOD. No issues with the clutch or anything along the lines of that. EXTREMELY upset. This need to be resolved ASAP. Broke down at 7:10pm wasn’t able to get a tow truck to me until 10:30pm
