Jeep visor recall- fire inside my Jeep: I had the Jeep visor recall completed in January 2015, took my Jeep into the Jeep dealership in may/June complaining of a buring smell twice. They said I was on the list for the second recall parts to come in and they would call me.

My Jeep caught fire on Friday 7. 24. 15. The fire department said it started in the passenger visor. This has been a headache over who is at fault and I wish Jeep would investigate too. My family is now affraid of Jeeps, my daughter doesnt want to sit in the front row any longer and it has been a mess over a potential recall error.

I was driving my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland to work, when I smelled smoke. I immediately did not know where it was coming from. All of the sudden the shield covering my sunroof opened by itself. There was then visible smoke on the outside and the inside of my car coming from above my head and the headliner visor area. The smoke soon turned to flames just inches above my head on the drivers side. I had to pull over immediate and get a fire extinguisher, and put the flames out as they started to spread to the interior visor/ ceiling area. The fire department also had to come and they mentioned that it looked like it was an electrical issue as there were wires hanging down. The Jeep had been towed back to the dealership and I am in the process of trying to figure out where to go from here.

Failure Date: 07/20/2015

I was driving on the highway when my battery light came on and moments later my wipers started to go on themselves along with my blinkers blinking and gps screen flashing, and every other possible light flashing. Then my truck suddenly shut off and I had no brakes or power steering and lost control of my vehicle and couldn't stop or direct it to where I wanted it to go. Luckily I was on the right lane and my vehicle veered to the right towards the grass and luckily there was enough grass to slow me to a stop. God was on my side! if I was on the left or middle lane it would of been a horrific incident because it was during rush hour. I was so scared of my life I would of crashed and would of been in a horrible accident. And thank god my kids wasn't in the car with me. But I have a problem because there is a recall about the exact problem that I'm having with is NHTSA campaign is number 14v634000 and the dealer is stating that my VIN and vehicle does not apply to it! but I'm having the exact problem and Chrysler needs to re check other vins because I'm 100 percent sure that's the recall. So please respond to me as soon as possible because I need this issue resolved or I will be contacting my lawyer and will fight this hard and will not give up and will give it my all to resolve this the right way. Thank you! alfred adzemovic. Also the dealer is security Dodge in amityville new york.

I have a Chrysler recall #r09 (fuel pump relay replacement). After speaking with a fca recall representative, I an told that these parts are still not available, yet my vehicle is a danger to drive! I did research, and my local dealer can get a tipm module which includes the fuel pump relay, in just 2 days. I can have my vehicle repaired in just a week. Yet I'm still waiting on parts that fca has "approved" for the repair. Fca has still not offered to give me a safe rental vehicle. They just told me to drive my vehicle until it stalls/wont start, or until "approved" parts arrive. After speaking with the recall representative, I was told parts "may" be available by the end of August. I feel fca is doing anything that they can to save money rather than fix my car. I want my car fixed. If "approved" parts are not available by the end of August, I will be filing another complaint with both fca, and NHTSA.

I was driving down the road today and my turns signals got stuck on again! this isn't the first time this has happened and this is not the first complaint I have filed. I have had my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee back to the dealership service department four times for this same issue. I have been told all four times that they cannot duplicate the problem. I have two videos of my turn signals getting stuck on and my dash flashing and reading the incorrect speed but the service department continues to tell me that they cannot duplicate it. Well, today there was almost an accident because of it. My turn signals got stuck on and another car pulled out in front of me and I almost hit them, they obviously thought I was turning, which I was not but yet again my turn signals were stuck on. Fca is fully aware of this issue. I have called them numerous times but they have no solution for me. I feel completely unsafe in my Jeep Grand Cherokee and it is just an accident waiting to happen.

Please review email chain to Chrysler's customer assistance center (note: I had to delete their passive response to my original email since your system limits the number of characters. They provided no real support other than to go to a dealer, which I have multiple times since and they have not identified any issue): dear customer assistance center I do not understand why you have not taken my issue seriously. Tonight a similar situation happened. The keyless fob was in a purse on the passenger seat of the vehicle. As my wife exited the vehicle, the doors were somehow locked. She was unable to open the doors from the outside of the vehicle. Luckily, again, there was someone of age that could open the doors. However, I have a 2 year old son that is normally in his car seat, and would have no possibility to exit the vehicle in this condition, and this is life threatening as we live in a hot climate, especially in the summer time. My next email and phone call is with NHTSA. This is 100% unacceptable and you have taken my concerns lightly. When there is the first fatality due to this issue, there will be major consequences to Chrysler. I will discuss this with NHTSA. Regards jody original message follows: ------------------------ us customer service - Jeep brand site brief description: safety concern with '13 Jeep cherokee comments: this weekend we were presented with a safety concern with our '13 Jeep cherokee. My wife had her key in her purse, got out of the vehicle with her purse still in the car. While getting out, the driver's side door partially shut, she was outside of the car but couldn't open any door. My 2 year old son was in the car, but luckily my 6 yr old daughter was able to get out of her seat and open the door, otherwise he would have been locked inside.
