Failure Date: 11/28/2016

Our 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been stalling while driving. In the last 2 months it has shut off at least 1-2 times a week, for about a total of 8 times. Fuel pump relay was fixed in 2014 but we think this is the problem again. Other electrical issues like keys not recognized are also happening but the car shutting off in the middle of an intersection is alarming. This has happened at least 3 times. The car has always stalled in the morning as my husband makes his way to work. My husband reports it happens often as he is trying to turn and driving on a street. He is currently risking his life driving this car to work.

I had schedule an appointment with dewey Dodge, ram, Chrysler, Jeep in ankeny IA on 09/29/16 to address the visor recall. At that time I was told they are lost part of the kit needed for the repair. I scheduled another appointment on 11/11/6 and was told they were still waiting for Chrysler to send what they needed. A month and a half seems an unreasonably long time, especially when compared to how little time it takes when the dealer has to order parts to address a maintenance issue.

When using the lane change feature of the turn signals (I. E. Depressing the turn signal lever until you hit the first detent, which then activates three turn signal flashes and then automatically turns off)it occasionally flashes the wrong direction. You want to indicate right but it may flash left, it may flash all left signals or some left and some right during the same sequence. It happens in both left and right directions. It happens during about 5% of the time when using the lane change, turn signal feature. I have contacted Jeep but received no assistance.

Wires get hot that lead to the heater/ac fan. The insulation of wire and connector melts. This causes the heater to go off and back on intermittently and frequently unless you wiggle the wires. Wiggling the connector will help for short periods of time. This occurs when the car is running(does not have to be moving) and the blower is on. I have tried to press in the connector or wiggle the connector while driving and this is a distraction. This has happened consistently beginning about a month after I bought the car. The location of the connector is under the glove box area. There are many instances on the internet that discuss this issue.

Failure Date: 10/06/2016

Very disappointed in this how Jeep (fca) has allowed a driver to back-up with the liftgate open, without a chime or other loud warning (similar to that when your doors are open. By accident I backed up after automatically closing the liftgate and assuming it was closed. The liftgate was not able to close and automatically re-opened without warning. I was in a parking garage and unfortunately the liftgate rubbed against the cieling of the garage, causing minor damage to the liftgate. It could have been much worse. I contacted Jeep to log my complaint but was rebuffed and believe me, for their attitude in addressing a safety issue that should be corrected immediately, I will think twice about buying another Jeep. No vehicle should be allowed to be backup with the liftgate open, and without a chime to alert the driver.

I entered my car , I did hear a bottle breaking noise but wasn't sure what it was. I got out of the car again to converse with a friend. When I got back in the car and closed the door, I heard the sunroof shade move like wind was above it. I opened the shade and saw a hole and shattered glass. I drove approximately a quarter mile, before I parked and heard the noise and saw the broken glass.

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee sagety recal # s55/NHTSA 16v-529 transaxle wire harness. I received a safety recall notice with instructions to call my local dealership to arrange service. I called the dealership and was told by the service department that the necessary parts required to do the repair was not made available to any dealership yet. I was told by the service department to wait another month or two for the second recall notice to arrive by mail to call and make the appointment. I asked if, in the meantime, I was to hope and pray that an accident is not caused by this recall item in the interim, and the service department replied , "yes. " I then call the fca recall assistance center at fca and was told the same thing. Unacceptable practices given the fact that the recall notice clearly states that, " . . . The system defaults the transaxle to neutral and the customer experiences a loss of motive power. . . . . The loss of motive power could cause a crash without warning. ".
