car   Car Stall problem 1
Failure Date: 06/18/2016

Vehicle has had the ignition recall done. In the hot weather, you can't run the air conditioning as the car will indiscriminately stall when you come to either a stop light or a yield. Car has to be put in park and restarted. Last week, when merging onto a highway, rpms went all the way down. Had to floor the car to get going and it knocked very hard. Had Jeep dealer look at this several times and they keep saying there's nothing wrong with the car. There is a problem here that Jeep is not addressing. They don't want to give a fair buy back price on the car, knowing we have a 19 year old driving the vehicle. Our local mechanic has said this is a very unsafe car and he wouldn't put his family in it. Jeep dealers don't want to face the problem or address it. This has been an issue for over a year, but becomes more apparent in summer months of hot weather.

The vehicle stalls a various speeds, but typically while driving at highway speeds. My daily commute is about 32 miles each way and I typically experience the vehicle shutting off once per day. When the vehicle does stall I have been able to place the vehicle in neutral, turn the ignition off, then restart by turning the ignition back on and putting the vehicle back in drive. I did have the vehicle serviced for recall p41 / NHTSA 14v-438 which was to resolve issues with loss of power during driving but no significant changes have been noticed since the repair. This issue has been occurring for about the last three years with increasing frequency. It has been taken in for repair multiple times, beside the recall repair, while under warranty but never fixed. This issue is a major safety concern for myself and family as there are times when the vehicle stalls while entering onto the highway or during highway travel. When the vehicle stalls it looses power steering so control and speed put ourselves and others at danger. The date and mileage mentioned below is the last time the stall occurred and not reflective of all the occurrences when the vehicle stalled.

Vehicle will stall while idling or decelerating. Jeep must be put into park or neutral and ignition completely turned off and back on for car engine to turn over. Vehicle also has stalled while driving at approximately 35 mph, also needing to be restarted to resume function. The engine light will remain on half of the time once the vehicle has stalled and been restarted. The vehicle stalls anywhere from once to a dozen times a day while driving and it occurs more in the cold weather. This vehicle has been taken to the dealership twice regarding the issue, and has different codes with each visit for things that need to be repaired. This vehicle is a large safety hazard.

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.

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!!.

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.

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.

Driving down the road the car will not go over 45 mph. The only way to quick fix the problem is to turn the car off then back on then it will run normal. Also the car has stalled out when I was turning down the road and would not go until I put the car in park then put it back in drive.

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.
