Summary of Complaint

WINDSHIELD WIPERS AND LIGHTS FAILED TO WORK DURING ICY RAIN/SNOWY CONDITIONS. ROAD VISIBILITY WAS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPAIRED AND I COULDN'T SEE MY INSTRUMENT PANEL. I HAD NO OPTION BUT TO CONTINUE HOME AT VERY SLOW SPEEDS TO AVOID AN ACCIDENT. AFTER APPROXIMATELY 20 MINUTES OF DRIVING WITHOUT WIPERS, THE WIPERS SUDDENLY TURNED ON BY THEMSELVES, MOVING VERY FAST. I COULD NOT ADJUST THE WIPER SPEED AT ALL. WHEN I ARRIVED HOME AND TURNED THE JEEP OFF AND REMOVED THE KEYS, WIPERS STILL WOULD NOT TURN OFF. I HAD TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY TO STOP THE WIPERS. DEALER CLAIMS IT WAS A FAULTY WIPER MOTOR. I ADVISED THEM I THINK IT'S A FAULTY TIPM BASED ON WHAT I RESEARCHED/READ ONLINE. THEY ASSURED ME THE TIPM WAS WORKING FINE. WHEN THEY ORDERED AND INSTALLED THE NEW WIPER MOTOR, IT DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM. THEY THEN ADMITTED THEY WERE WRONG WITH THE DIAGNOSTIC AND THE TIPM WAS FAULTY. THEY ADVISED ME THAT I NEED A NEW TIPM AND THAT ALL TIPMS ARE ON NATIONWIDE BACK ORDER. SEEMS TIPM FAILURE IS A RECURRING THEME AMONGST CERTAIN JEEP WRANGLER MODELS. IF YOUR LIGHTS AND WIPERS CAN GO OUT WHILE OPERATING THE VEHICLE, THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY HAZARD. I CALLED CHRYSLER TO COMPLAIN AND HAVE YET TO HEAR BACK FROM THEM. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I bought my 2007 Jeep Wrangler in November 2020. It had approximately 122,000 miles on it and has the 6 speed manual transmission. After driving it for 7 days, I was backing out of a parking spot and heard a loud squeal and was unable to shift gears. It had to have the clutch replaced along with the flywheel and several other clutch associated parts. The total was $1,600. The salesman at the dealership where I bought it told me as I was buying it that there is no warranty but if something happens in the first couple of weeks that he would work with us. Of course he did NOT help me. He wouldn't even return my phone calls. Whatever, buyer beware! Second issue is of course the fuel spit back problem. Every time I fill up, I end up with gas on the Jeep and on the ground. I love wasting money like that. There is apparently a recall on this issue but your website says my vehicle has no recalls. Third issue is all the door hinges are rusting really bad. I saw that there were several service bulletins on the proper procedures for replacing those hinges. Those should be replaced by the dealer at no cost.

Summary of Complaint

TIMP HAS GONE BAD. CAUSES ALL GAUGES TO QUIT WORKING, STALLS ENGINE DURING OPERATIING, DOOR LOCKS AND SECURITY SYSTEM INOPERABLE, HEADLIGHTS WORK THEN DON'T WORK. LIGHTS COME ON EVEN IF SWITCH IS OFF. WINDOW MOTORS QUIT WORKING. THE WELL KNOWN FAILURE OF THE TIMP IN CHRYSLER VEHICLES, ESPECIALLY ALL JEEP WRANGLER SERIES DATING AS FAR BACK AS 2006, HAVE NOT BEEN ADDRESSED NOR FIXED BY CHRYSLER. THIS TIMP FAILURE IS A SEVERE SAFETY HAZARD AND NEEDS AN IMMEDIATE RECALL FORCED UPON CHRYSLER/DAIMLER/JEEP. MY 2007 JEEP WRANGLER JKU TIMP QUIT WORKING, WHILST I WAS DRIVING. THIS COULD HAVE CAUSED A MAJOR ACCIDENT OF WHICH COULD HAVE RESULTED IN INJURY, AND/OR DEATH. THANKFULLY, I WAS ABLE TO PHYSICALLY THROUGH THE DISABLED POWER STEERING TO STOP VEHICLE. THROUGH MY RESEARCH, IT APPEARS THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE PLAGUING NEARLY EVERY JEEP WRANGLER PRODUCED. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE NOW TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE. I WONDER IF ANYONE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT CAUSING INJURY OR DEATH OR DAMAGE COULD HAVE BEEN RELATED TO THE TIMP. I AM GOING TO DISCUSS THIS ISSUE WITH THE NORTH CAROLINA GENERAL ASSEMBLY AND NC AND US ATTORNEY'S GENERAL'S OFFICE AS WELL. THIS HAS TO BE FIXED NOW WITH IMMEDIATE RECALL FORCING CHRYSLER/DAIMLER/JEEP TO FIX THE TIMP.

I HAVE A CURRENT RECALL FOR A DEFECTIVE AIRBAG IN MY 2007 JEEP WRANGLER. THE AIRBAG IS CURRENTLY NOT OPERATIONAL. EVERY 1-2 MINUTES WHILE DRIVE THE AIRBAG LIGHT WILL COME ON AND DING. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND IT MAKES THE VEHICLE INCREDIBLY ANNOYING TO DRIVE. A LOCAL REPAIR SHOP DIAGNOSED THE ERROR CODES AND THEY SAID THE PROBLEM IS RELATED TO THE FOLLOWING RECALL AND I SHOULD TAKE IT TO A DEALER TO BE FIXED. MANUFACTURER RECALL NUMBER: S33 NHTSA RECALL NUMBER: 16V-290 I WAITED FOR THE FIRST AVAILABLE APPOINTMENT AND TOOK MY VEHICLE TO AUTONATION ARAPAHOE JEEP IN CENTENNIAL, COLORADO TODAY. THEY SAID IT WILL BE A YEAR AND A HALF OR MORE BEFORE THE PART IS IN STOCK. THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FIX THE ISSUE UNTIL THEN. THIS IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE TO HAVE THE MANUFACTURER ACKNOWLEDGE A DEFECTIVE AIRBAG AND I HAVE TO WAIT A YEAR AND A HALF TO GET IT FIXED. SADLY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT RECOURSE I HAVE TO GET IT FIXED. ASIDE FROM PAYING $500 OUT OF POCKET TO HAVE THE LOCAL AUTO REPAIR SHOP FIX IT. WHICH IS WHAT THEY QUOTED ME FOR. AND SAID THEY COULD THE PART IN STOCK TO REPAIR IN 2 DAYS.

Summary of Complaint

PURCHASED 2007 JEEP WRANGLER IN 2015 AND HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH FUEL SPLASHING FROM GAS TANK WHEN FILLING UP. THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN. FUEL SHOULD STOP ONCE TANK IS FULL. I HAVE NOTICED THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH MANY JEEP WRANGLER (JK) OWNERS AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF A RECALL IS IN EFFECT OR HOW IT CAN BE FIXED. BOTTOM LINE I HAVE CALLED SEVERAL DEALERS INQUIRING ABOUT PART CNNNX321AC, WHICH IS A RECALL PART #, BUT THEY CAN'T SELL IT TO ME. SO, IF I CAN'T BUY THE PART TO FIX AND THEY HAVE NO RECALL ON THE CAR, IS MY ONLY OPTION AT THIS POINT TO SUE THE CHRYSLER CORPORATION? THIS IS A CAR MY DAUGHTER DRIVES AND IT IS A SAFETY ISSUE NOT JUST SOME SUPERFICIAL ISSUE WITH JEEP. THIS OCCURS EVERY TIME SHE GOES TO THE GAS STATION TO FILL THE JEEP. SMELLING LIKE PETROLEUM AFTER EVERY FILLING OF TANK IS NOT THE RIGHT ANSWER. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THIS IS A SIX SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION VEHICLE. FROM STOP INTO FIRST GEAR, THE VEHICLE VIOLENTLY POPS OUT OF FIRST GEAR INTO PARTIAL NEUTRAL. THERE IS NO BINDING APPARENT FROM ANY OF THE DUST BOOTS ON THE SHIFTER LEVER. I HAVE HAD THIS VEHICLE SINCE LATE 2009. IT WAS STORED FOR A YEAR AND ONLY DRIVEN MONTHLY FOR SHORT PERIODS. UPON RETURN FROM MY DEPLOYMENT I DROVE THIS VEHICLE AS MY DAILY DRIVER UP TO CURRENT. THE HOTTER THE WEATHER, THE MORE THE TRANSMISSION POPS OUT OF GEAR. EVER SINCE I'VE HAD THE VEHICLE, IT HAS HAD THIS ISSUE. IT VIOLENTLY POPS OUT IF FIRST GEAR 1 TO 2 TIMES A WEEK; OCCASIONALLY MORE. IT IS NOW BECOMING MORE APPARENT THAT THIS IS A VERY UNSAFE ISSUE. RECENTLY, WHEN TRYING TO MAKE LEFT HAND TURNS ACROSS TRAFFIC, IT WOULD POP OUT OF GEAR AND I WOULD QUICKLY HAVE TO RECOVER AND GET IT BACK INTO GEAR BEFORE ONCOMING TRAFFIC APPROACHED. I HAVE SEEN HUNDREDS OF BLOGS AND INTERNET POSTS STATING THE SAME EXACT ISSUE STATED BY HUNDREDS, IF NOT THOUSANDS OF OTHER JEEP OWNERS OF SIMILAR YEARS AND REFERENCING HAVING TO CHANGE OUT 1 AND 2 GEAR SYNCHROS ACCORDING TO A JEEP BULLETIN. SO, IF JEEP KNOWS IT IS A MAJOR ISSUE, THEN WHY ISN'T THERE A RECALL? OTHERS WERE LUCKY TO GET REPAIRS FOR FREE UNDER WARRANTY, BUT THE MAJORITY OF OWNERS WERE OUT OF WARRANTY, SIMILAR TO ME. SINCE THIS IS SUCH A PREDOMINANT MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE, THEN THIS IS CLEARLY A NEED FOR A RECALL FOR THOSE THAT NEED/REQUIRE THE REPAIR. HISTORY WISE, I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE IN NOVEMBER 2009 WITH 15703 MILES ON IT. BY APPROX. FEBRUARY 2011 WHEN I STARTED DRIVING IT DAILY AND AT ABOUT 17000 MILES THE ISSUE STARTED. THE VEHICLE CURRENTLY HAS ABOUT 89800 MILES ON IT.

MY 2007 JEEP WRANGLER HAS A SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS PROBLEM COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE DEATH WOBBLE! I HAD NEVER HEARD OF IT UNTIL IT DID IT WHILE I WAS DRIVING DOWN A SMOOTH SUBURB STREET AND I SEARCHED THE INTERNET FOR HELP. THE JEEP OWNERS COMMUNITY NAMED IT THE DEATH WOBBLE BECAUSE IT LITERALLY WOBBLES AND SHAKES WITHOUT ANY WARNING LIGHTS, WITHOUT ANYTHING TRIGGERING IT, ON EVERY TYPE OF ROAD, AND AT EVERY SPEED. AFTER IT HAPPENED ON THE INTERSTATE WITH MY SON IN THE CAR WITH ME, I NO LONGER ALLOWED MY CHILDREN TO RIDE IN THE JEEP AT ALL. WE ALMOST DIED THAT DAY AS IT SHOOK SO VIOLENTLY ALMOST PUTTING US IN THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE! WE MISSED GETTING T-BONED BY AN 18 WHEELER BY JUST A HAIR. IT WAS SO FRIGHTENING! THE JEEP DEALERSHIP SERVICE DEPT SAID THERE'S NOTHING THAT THEY CAN DO ABOUT IT AND THAT IT WAS VERY COMMON. HOW IS SUCH A DANGER COMMON??? HOW CAN THESE VEHICLES BE LEGALLY SOLD?? THE LAST TIME IT HAPPENED I WAS ALONE AND I ENDED UP IN A DITCH. I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE OUT OF THE DITCH AND WENT TO NEARBY AUTO SHOP. THEIR DIAGNOSIS WAS THAT THE ENGINE "SLING A ROD" THEY SAID. FOR 3 MONTHS NOW, I HAVE BEEN MAKING PAYMENTS ON A JEEP SITTING DEAD IN AN AUTO SHOP. AS A SINGLE MOM I CAN'T AFFORD SUCH A HUGE REPAIR AND ROUTE 66 WARRANTY COMPANY DECIDED TO CANCEL MY ALREADY PAID FOR EXTENDED WARRANTY WHEN I FILED THE CLAIM ON IT. THEY DENIED IT AND SAID THEY'RE CANCELING ME. THIS VEHICLE IS GOING TO KILL SOMEONE. PLEASE HELP!!

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE A 2007 JEEP WRANGLER WITH A MANUAL TRANSMISSION. RECENTLY IT HAS STARTED TO OCCASIONALLY AND VIOLENTLY POP OUT OF FIRST GEAR. THE ISSUE ONLY HAPPENS FROM A STANDSTILL INTO A ROLLING START SUCH AS AT A STOP SIGN OR TRAFFIC LIGHT. THIS IS A DANGEROUS ISSUE AS I COULD EASILY BE REAR ENDED IN BUSY TRAFFIC. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ IN THE DIFFERENT WRANGLER FORUMS, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY CUSTOMERS WITH THE SAME ISSUE. THERE IS A DETAILED TSB REGARDING THIS REPAIR. I KNOW STARTING IN 2008, THE JEEPS CAME WITH A LIFETIME WARRANTY ON THE POWERTRAIN. I'M INQUIRING TODAY AS TO WHY THERE HAS NOT BEEN A RECALL ISSUED FOR THOSE OF US WITH THE '07. IT'S THE SAME MOTOR, SAME TRANSMISSION AS THE 08-2010 MODELS. I ONLY HAVE 124K MILES ON IT, AND HAVE OWNED THE JEEP FOR 10 YEARS. THE TSB RELATED INVOLVES REPLACING FIRST GEAR, AND THE 1/2 SYNCHROS. I HAVE ALREADY REACHED OUT TO JEEP/FCA AND WAS REFERRED BACK TO JUST SEEK REPAIR. I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT JEEP/CHRYSLER SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS KNOWN PROBLEM/ COMMON DEFECT IN ENGINEERING, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE MODEL YEAR JK AFTER '07 CAME WITH THE LIFETIME POWER TRAIN WARRANTY.

Summary of Complaint

THE THROTTLE CONTROL RANDOMLY GOES OUT, WHILE IT IS EASY TO RESET THE SENSOR, SO THE VEHICLE REMAINS DRIVEABLE, IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY OR CROSSING THE HIGHWAY WITH CHILDREN IN THE CAR AND THE CAR GOES INTO LIMP MODE. I WAS TURNING ON THE HIGHWAY WHERE PEOPLE ARE DOING 60MPH AND SUDDENLY MID TURN THE CAR GOES INTO LIMP MODE AND DOESN'T WANT TO MOVE WHILE CARS COME SPEEDING AT YOU.
