About a month after purchasing my used Jeep, I was coming to a stop on a city street and my Jeep powered off completely. After taking the Jeep in to the dealership they fixed the fuel pump relay, which was recalled ,and sent me on my way. Since then my Jeep has powered off 5 times (once while entering the highway, twice while exiting the highway, once while making a u-turn under the highway and once on a city street) each time while braking. I've had no power brakes or steering each time.

Brought vehicle in for oil change (only oil change). Jeep dealer gave back vehicle back with a new ignition stating there was a recall on it without me asking or authorizing them to do so. Now I have a new ignition that is not flush with the dash (sticks out about half an inch) and does not work properly with my original keys. My keys are extremely difficult to go in and out of the ignition and on 2 separate occasions the key was unable to be removed from the ignition resulting in the acc being left on overnight and being forced to take vehicle to dealer in the morning with a dead battery. Dealer states I need to purchase a new key because my keys are original and the ignition they replaced is brand new and are not synced up. The service manager told me it is my problem to purchase new keys for the Jeep that had no issues prior to them replacing the ignition. Called Jeep customer service and they told me I would be given a new key but than put me on hold for 20 minutes and told me it is actually my responsibility to purchase a new key after they changed out my ignition.

The vehicle typically stalls while driving at highway speeds but has stalled on city streets. When the vehicle stalls I am able to turn the ignition back on and drive. I have had the p41 / NHTSA 14v-438 recall and this did not resolve the issues. It is stalling even more often now. I have had this issue for the last 3 years I have owned the vehicle. I have taken it in for repair to 3 different repair shops not including the recall and it is still not fixed. This is a major safety concern. The vehicle stalled one particular time and I was almost hit by a bus on the highway. When the vehicle stalls you lose power steering and I was lucky enough to make it out of the way. The current mileage is approximately 132,500.
