Failure Date: 10/20/2014

I was driving down squirrel at approximately 5:40pm and going around 45-50mph when suddenly my car jerked and completely stalled and shut off. I lost all control of my car and I could not steer to go onto the grass. I immediately put my hazards on and came to a stop and restarted my car. This issue has been happening since September 1st. It has been in and out of the shop for the same issue since September 1st. It's been in and out of the shop about 10-15 times for the same issue. I have spent over $2,100 in repairs, fixes, and replacements. This issue is clearly not fixed and this is a serious safety concern. They keep releasing me a car that is completely unsafe to drive. This not only happened once, but this has happened every single time they have released me my car.

Failure Date: 01/22/2014

Car stalled while traveling on highway at 65mph with light throttle. Electrical systems stayed on, engine cut out with no warning. When the engine stopped a single alert chime sounded. The car was maneuvered to the shoulder. Placed the vehicle in park and restarted by turning off, then on. Started on first attempt. This is the first stall I have encountered after purchasing the Jeep 1 month ago. The engine has stuttered a couple of times at highway speeds with the alert chime sounding once each time, but the engine restarted within a second and continued going.

Failure Date: 12/29/2013

Same description as many other consumers. Slow, rough acceleration at all times. Very difficult to accelerate especially when entering freeway. Need to pull over on ramp and turn off vehicle in hopes that restart will help. Vehicle will stall while driving on freeway. Just completely shuts down. Very dangerous for driver and those around driver. Have to attempt to get to side of road and turn off vehicle and hope that upon restart vehicle will improve. Too many complaints over the years have gone unheeded and an immediate recall needs to be done before serious injuries or deaths occur.

Failure Date: 12/19/2013

I had been driving for maybe 8 minutes at 55 mph when suddenly the vehicle jumped, stalled and lost power. After gliding to the side of the road, I made 3 attempts to restart in park. It would not restart. After waiting several minutes the car did restart. All of this while people are passing at 60 mph on a two lane road!! the vehicle is not registering any codes!!.


car   Car Stall problem 7
Failure Date: 12/12/2013

The vehicle would just suddenly shutdown, I bought the vehicle used just a few days before the incident but driving to different state. Since then, it has stalled several times and I have taken it to the dealer and since there is no engine check light, dealer says they cannot find the problem. It would stall at any speed, temperature or any condition. I am afraid that it may stall at the wrong place at the wrong time. Althought it would start right away but sometimes it take 3-4 times to turn over. I hope Chrysler would find a fix for this.

car   Car Stall problem 8
Failure Date: 11/11/2013

While I am driving my Jeep will buck and shut down. I then had to make my way over to the side of the road on the highway while cars are going 65mph or greater and my speed is slowing down. When I was able to pull over and stop. I had to remove the key and place the car in park before it would start. The first few times I tried while in neutral and moving to the side of the highway it would just continue to click and keep clicking. This has been happening several times a day now and my route to work is 95% highway. It is scary that someone might hit me and cause a terrible accident. I noticed this has happened to several Jeeps around the world with the same issue. I noticed a recall for the Jeep going into neutral but nothing about this major issue about the car bucking and stalling while driving. I noticed my Jeep had its ignition switch changed out some time ago also. I wonder if he had problems before he traded. I have no other car to drive or I would and I have spent over $500 trying to find out what the issue is. Please start investigating before someone gets hurt.

Failure Date: 02/27/2013

While driving the vehicle the engine will randomly shut off (stall), this occurs at any speed and any driving condition, occasionally it will be very difficult to restart, taking multiple tries. This is extremely dangerous especially when turning corners or coming off the freeway and merging into traffic. Was almost rear ended when truck stalled and would not start I even put in neutral with no help and it just kept jumping.

Failure Date: 12/04/2012

Purchased 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland 5. 7 on 11/30/2012. On 12/04/2012 I experienced stalling while decelerating to stop for a stop light, then the vehicle stalled showing code p0884. The vehicle started right back up when I turned the key with no signs of hesitation. Ever since that day, my vehicle stalls on average about 8-10 times per week depending on how often I use the vehicle. It stalls mainly during idle or coming to a stop and the most frightening stall I have experienced was when I was traveling at 60mph on a major highway and the vehicle completely stalled, and instantly restarted itself. Both times I experienced stalling at high speed was when I was doing about 60mph and both times the vehicle restarted itself on its own. But every time the vehicle stalls, I loose all power including power steering which worries me very much. Apparently I am not the only 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland with the 5. 7 motor owner experiencing this problem. I am one of the hundreds on owners involved in a group discussion on Jeepforum. Com where we discuss this problem and steps that Jeep, private mechanics, and/or owners themselves have taken to correct this stalling problem. This problem has been going on for years and no one seems to have a solution. Loss of power at 60mph is a very big issue and I worry that someone can be very hurt or killed by loss of power steering during stalling. I hope this issue raises concerns for my vehicle and I would be more than willing to allow someone from the NHTSA come and test drive my vehicle to experience what I and hundreds, possibly thousands of others are experiencing. Thank you very much and if you should have any questions in regards to this problem, please do not hesitate to contact me any time.

Failure Date: 04/23/2012

Multiple times while driving my vehicle has suddenly lost power. I will be going 70 mph or 15 trying to accelerate and then it stalls out and won't accelerate. I will pull off to the side of the road and turn my car off and then back on and it will correct itself most of the time. I took my vehicle to a transmission place and they didn't know what it was. The conducted a transmission flush and replaced some electrical wiring and it seemed to help for about 4 months. Now just last Friday (20 April 2012), I was trying to accelerate after pulling out into traffic and almost got broadsided because the car just wouldn't accelerate past 2. 5 rpms and 10 mph. Luckily the car heading straight for me slowed down and I was able to get out of the way for on coming 55 mph traffic. I looked on numerous websites and an ungodly amount of Jeep owners have reported this same issue. I took my vehicle to the Jeep dealer yesterday (23 April 2012) and they said they had to replace the electronic shifter module. I was getting codes u0404 and u0103. It cost $1051. 50 to fix. I checked on-line after, and that is what everyone else said that the Jeep mechanics would recommend even though it would just break again 3 months later. One man even noted that the mechanic said that they have changed over 1,000 of those in his shop alone. I feel that this is a major safety issue and should be recalled! Jeep obviously knows this is going on.

We recently purchased a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited 5. 7 l hemi. It drove just fine for the 1st few weeks of owning it. Recently it has started stalling when at stop lights/signs, while driving, and while in reverse. We have had the vehicle in the shop a few times already. It has been throwing off codes of p0884 and p0688. The dealership has informed us that those codes stand for power up at speed (p0884) and asd relay (p0668). We have just changed all the spark plugs and are now in the midst of changing out the coils everytime the Jeep stalls, we have been doing this for just a few days and are now on #5 of 8 and it is not working. The dealership has run out of ideas as to how to get this fixed. This has become a safety hazard while driving. We have read reviews on several different websites and have found several other consumers with the same issues with no resolve. We have also read some reviews and they have stated that Chrysler/Jeep will not step up to the plate and state that there is a problem. I as a consumer find this wrong. This is a safety issue that I feel could save lives on the road. I don't know what else to do to get this issue fixed/resolved. I have now written down the numbers and address to contact Chrysler/Jeep and will be contacting them in the very near future, in the mean time this is what I am able to do. Thank you.

Vehicle stall out at various speeds, or when idling stationary. Comes on without warning. Seems these stalling problems are common with 5. 7 hemi Jeep Grand Cherokees, even according to the dealer. This is a serious safety hazard as power steering and brakes are lost during a stall. An inoperative vehicle in a traffic lane could suffer a rear-end collision from this condition. Please help by ordering a recall from Chrysler company to remedy the problem. Nothing seems to remedy the situation and it keeps occurring.

Shortly after changing the spark plugs in my wife's 2007 Grand Cherokee overland the vehicle would stall on deceleration. I thought it might be an isolated incident, but the stalling continued frequently. The engine completely shuts down and the vehicle must be stopped or put in neutral while coasting to be restarted. After conducting some internet research I found this to be a common problem with the 2007 Grand Cherokees with hemi's. I was amazed at the number of occurrences of this happening among this vehicle. . Read more...
