Summary of Complaint

I'VE EXPERIENCED THE 'DEATH WOBBLE' AROUND SEVEN TIMES SINCE PURCHASING THE VEHICLE IN FEBRUARY OF LAST YEAR, MAINLY ON SECONDARY ROADS. I TOOK IT TO TWO LOCAL MECHANICS WHO FOUND NO ISSUES. IT HAD YET TO HAVE HAPPENED AT HIGH SPEEDS UNTIL YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS ON INTERSTATE 81 (WHICH I DRIVE DAILY-SPEED LIMIT 70) AND HIT THE BEGINNING OF A BRIDGE AND THE JEEP SHOOK SO VIOLENTLY THAT I HAD TO PULL INTO THE EMERGENCY LANE, BRING THE VEHICLE TO A COMPLETE STOP, AND TURN MY HAZARD LIGHTS ON. I AM AFRAID TO DRIVE IT AT THIS POINT. I FEAR NOT ONLY MY SAFETY, BUT THE SAFETY OF OTHER DRIVERS ON THE ROAD AROUND ME. I HAVE READ ONLINE THAT THIS IS COMMON AND WAS CONSIDERED TO BE A MANUFACTURING FAULT AND THAT RECALLS WERE BEING ISSUED, BUT WHEN I SEARCHED MY VIN NUMBER, NO RECALLS WERE FOUND.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING, THE HORN, LIGHTS AND WIPERS RANDOMLY GO OFF AND SPRAY FLUID EVERYWHERE. NOTHING CAN BE DONE TO STOP IT AND EVEN TURNING THE CAR OFF DOESN'T. IT CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS TO ME AND OTHER DRIVERS SINCE THEY DO NOT KNOW WHY MY HORN IS GOING OFF FOR MINUTES AT A TIME. I DON'T WANT TO BE BEHIND SOMEONE AT AN INTERSECTION WITH MY HORN AND WIPERS GOING OFF. LOOKING ONLINE I CAN SEE THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS MODEL AND SHOULD BE FIXED BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT.

Summary of Complaint

AFTER LEAVING THE GYM ON MY LUNCH BREAK I TOOK (THANK GOD) THE NOT SO HEAVY TRAFFIC ROAD TO GET BACK TO WORK. MY JEEP CUT OFF ON ME WHILE DRIVING. I HAD TO PULL OVER. AGAIN MY WIPERS START GOING AND THE LIGHTS COME ON AND THE HORN WON'T STOP BLARING SO I HAD TO OPEN THE HOOD AND TAP ON THE FUSE BOX LID. AFTER THE 5TH ATTEMPT THE CAR DECIDED TO COME ON. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING MY VEHICLE IF I AM RIGHT NEXT TO THE EMERGENCY LANE. THIS HAS TO STOP AND SHOULD BE A RECALL. I HAVE A CHILD AND THIS IS VERY NOT SAFE. THE SAME INCIDENT HAPPENED TO ME LAST WEEK COMING DOWN A BUSY STREET. AGAIN BLESSED I WAS NEAR THE DRIVEWAY OF A BUSINESS I DID NOT GET INTO AN ACCIDENT AND PULLED OVER WAITING FOR MY JEEP TO DECIDE WHEN IT WANTED TO START AGAIN. WHY IS THIS NOT A RECALL? I TOOK MY JEEP SEVERAL MONTHS BACK TO THE DEALER AND WAS WITHOUT TRANSPORTATION FOR 2 WEEKS BEFORE THEY GOT TO LOOKING AT IT AND STATED THEY COULD NOT FIND THE PROBLEM AND SENT IT BACK HOME TO ME. PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS ISSUE AS I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO. *TR

Summary of Complaint

JEEP WRANGLER STILL ACTS UP WITH ELECTRONICS. AFTER PICKING UP SOME GROCERY AS I OPEN MY PASSENGER DOOR MY HORN, BOTH WIPERS, WASHER FLUID SPRAYING OUT, AND LIGHTS STARTED GOING HAYWIRE. EVERYTHING TURNED ON ALL AT ONCE. I JUMPED IN AND TRIED STARTING IT UP MAYBE REST WHAT EVER SHORT MY BE EXPERIENCING, I WAS ABLE TO START IT BUT CONTINUE TO GO HAYWIRE AS I TURNED OFF THE IGNITION, IT CONTINUE TO RUN. I JUMPED OUT TO POP THE HOOD AND PULLED A FUSE. THE ENGINE STOPPED AND CAR STOPPED GOING HAYWIRE. I WAITED ABOUT 10 MINS BEFORE REPLACING THE FUSE. JEEP WRANGLER STILL HONKS HORN (BEEP) AND WIPERS SHIFT A LITTLE IN THE MORNING WHEN I OPEN THE DRIVER DOOR. SHOULD I BE CONCERN THAT THIS MALFUNCTION WILL CAUSE A FIRE OR POSSIBLE HARM? *TR

Summary of Complaint

GETTING READY TO GO TO WORK I OPEN MY DRIVER SIDE DOOR AND THE HORN STARTS BLOWING, WIPER FLUID SQUIRTING CONTINUOUSLY, WINDSHIELD WIPERS CONSTANTLY GOING THAT HAVE NOW SCRATCHED MY HOOD, INTERNAL LIGHTS BLINKING, RADIATOR/COOLANT FAN GOING, ALL LIGHTS ON THE DASH COME ON, THE HEADLIGHTS FLASHING AS THEY PLEASE, THE AIRBAG LIGHT STAYS ON, AND HEAT STOPS WORKING. I HAD TO GET MY BOYFRIEND TO DISCONNECT MY HORN BECAUSE AT 7 A.M. IT IS VERY EMBARRASSING TO WAKE THE NEIGHBORS! I HAD TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY. NOW I CAN SOMETIMES GET IT TO STOP BY SLAPPING THE FUSE BOX COVER. AT TIMES MY CAR WON'T SHUT OFF WITH THE KEY TAKEN OUT SO I HAVE TO LET IT JUMP IN FIRST GEAR WHILE PUSHING THE BRAKE. THE FIRST TIME THIS HAPPENED TO ME I ALMOST REAR ENDED A CAR IN THE DAYCARE PARKING LOT AS WE ALL PARALLEL PARK TO GET TO THE FRONT DOOR. THIS HAPPENS WHENEVER IT WANTS TO AND NOW THAT IT IS GETTING DARKER EARLIER I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT TRANSPORTING MY CHILD WITH NO HEADLIGHTS AT NIGHT BECAUSE I HAVE NO OTHER MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION WHICH THIS HAPPENED TO ME ON THE WAY TO PICK HER UP LAST NIGHT 11/12/14. THE ISSUE IS HAPPENING MORE OFTEN IN COLDER WEATHER AND IS NOT SAFE AT ALL TO HAVE NO HEADLIGHTS WORKING AT NIGHT BECAUSE OF THE ELECTRICAL ISSUES GOING ON. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE CHRYSLER/DODGE/JEEP DEALERSHIP AND HAD TO WAIT ALMOST TWO WEEKS BEFORE THEY COULD LOOK AT IT. THEY COULD NOT FIND THE ISSUE BECAUSE WHEN THEY CHECKED EVERYTHING IT DID NOT DO ANYTHING BUT ACT NORMAL FOR THEM. I SEE THIS BEING A COMMON ISSUE WITH WRANGLERS LATELY AND AM WAITING FOR THE ANSWER ON THE PETITION AND INVESTIGATION BEFORE I DECIDE IF THIS IS WORTH FIXING AND KEEPING. NOT SAFE AT ALL! *TR

Summary of Complaint

THE CLOCKSPRING ASSEMBLY ON MY 2008 LEFT HAND DRIVE JEEP IS DEFECTIVE. I EXPERIENCE AN INTERMITTENT CHECK AIRBAG INDICATOR LIGHT. THE DEFECTIVE CLOCKSPRING ASSEMBLY COULD RESULT IN BROKEN AIRBAG CIRCUITS. IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH NECESSITATING AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT, A BROKEN ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT IN THE AIRBAG CLOCKSPRING WIRING ASSEMBLY CAN LEAD TO NON-DEPLOYMENT OF THE DRIVER-SIDE FRONTAL AIRBAG AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PROPERLY PROTECT THE DRIVER. CHRYSLER RECALLED 2008 RIGHT HAND DRIVE JEEPS FOR THE SAME REASON. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW A RECALL WAS DONE FOR RIGHT-HAND DRIVE VEHICLES AND NOT LEFT HAND DRIVE VEHICLES. IT IS THE SAME SAFETY ISSUE. *TR
