The technician was unable to find a failure. In addition, two weeks later while driving at 60 mph, the vehicle stalled. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. This is an expensive repair that I can't afford. Hopefully this will be my last post on the topic! While pulling out of a parking lot, the contact heard a loud noise near the front driver side of the vehicle. Problem goes away after several minutes of driving. It was also difficult to view the odometer.
The contact stated that this was a recurring failure. There appears to be a significant amount of complaints and research online that I was shocked to learn a recall had not been issued for this extreme safety issue. They made the decision based on the fact that the mileage was almost within the original 36,000 mile warnty. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The hole was so large I could put my hand in it and the crack ran along the entire crossmember. They attached some sort of event recorder and were able to trace it back to the wiring harness.
There seems to be many similar complaints on this same issue. I have had all service done at the dealer. The engine burns through oil at an alarming rate and is designed to shut off when the oil is low. It was found to have the K frame rusted through therefore failing state inspection. So what I did was put the key in the On position for 15 minutes and voila, the Jeep started. The Jeep failed because the cross member frame was almost completely rusted out. The vehicle was not repaired.
I delivered the car to the dealer early on the 29th. I had him mechanic keep it till it happened to him. Used 5 containers of Chevron Techron in gas. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. I have no indication when a problem exists.
Took the car on a road trip and it shut down twice while driving once on a railroad track. The contact was able to restart the vehicle however, the failure reoccurred after driving at 35 mph and 55 mph. There was noise and some looseness when going over slight bumps such as manhole covers. I had also previously replaced sparkplugs fouled. It has stalled on me without warning 5 or 6 times in the past 8 months due to low oil. I am currently out of a car as the mechanic deemed it extremely unsafe to drive and would not let me drive the car back home. How many people have to complain or something bad happens before Chrysler will do something about the problem? The harassing company pays our fees.
Apparently, not enough complaints have warranted a 2008 recall. It has happened while driving or stopped at a traffic light, less than a mile from the gas station, usually within a few minutes of pumping the gas. I have then contact several Jeep dealerships about this recall, have continued to tell me that this recall has expired and that I will not be able to get my Jeep fixed. This website is attorney advertising: prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome. The contact stated that the vehicle experienced excessive engine oil consumption, which caused the vehicle to stall on several occasions. I was unable to accelerate, move, or anything.
Dealerships in South Florida contacted: Joey accardi, arrigo, and, worst of them all, schumacher. See the jurisdictions in which our lawyers are licensed, admitted, or otherwise authorized to practice. Rear sway bar bushings replaced, wrong size installed last time. The failure mileage was 150,000. I've already replaced both outer tie rod arms at 75,000 mi.
We took the car to the Jeep dealership and was told the oil was empty and the engine is burning oil. It's noisy, it does not accelerate as well and frankly if you put your foot in it, it sounds like the pistons are gonna swap holes. This could be repeated reliably I believe. The deal called me around 5:30 pm the same day to explain the car was low on oil and this caused the car to shut off. This is blinding and makes it impossible to see when backing up.
