Failure Date: 08/12/2015

Merging vehicle into highway traffic when electronic instrument console went blank, losing power. Instrument panel then lit back up and all warning signals (check engine, battery etc. ) were illuminated. Engine continued running, but very slowly (as if stuck in 1st gear). When able to safely exit the highway and pull off roadway, was unable to shift car out of drive into park. It appeared all the electronic controls were not working. Because this car has a push button ignition (and a fob, rather than a key), the push button ignition could not be turned off, because the car was not in park. I had to remain at the wheel with the brake on to prevent the car from moving. I was unsuccessful at contacting Jeep technical assistance to try to identify how to cut power to the engine. Ultimately, after holding in the ignition button for a prolonged period of time, the power returned and I was able to put car in park. Please note, recall notice 13v-483 had been repaired on this vehicle prior to this event.

While driving my brand new 3day old 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the engine completely shut off. I lost all control of my brakes and steering. I was able to coast and get off of the road. I immediately called the dealer who sent a flat bed tow truck to haul the vehicle back to the dealer. Once at the dealer I was extremely upset and shaken and received a chilly reception from the sales manager and dealer director. My concern and vehicle malfunction was downplayed. The dealership was very condescending and acted as if I had made up the entire situation. They insisted they had never heard of a problem like this occurring with a Jeep. I told them I didn't want my car fixed, I instead wanted my trade in back and the deal voided. No questioned were asked. . . The dealer never offered to put me in another Jeep which I found odd, and instead I was told I was over reacting and they reversed my paper work. They dealer continued to ignore my concern that someone could have been hurt due to this problem and that it needed to be reported to the manufacturer. The paperwork to reverse my sale was executed quickly and I was escorted out of the dealership within 30 minutes. I did contact the dealership's owner to report my safety concern and the dealership's flippant attitude, but have not received a phone call back.

August 9, 2015, left home in my Jeep and drove approximately for a half mile than noted a severe smell inside . Turned around and went back home thinking that oil is leaking and burning. August 10, 2015, drove to work approximately 15 miles. At work, on the parking lot I lowered the sunvisor on the driver side and that's when I discovered the cause of yesterday's smell. There is a large burned out hole in the roof liner. I know there was a recall on this potential fire hazard in the past. It was apparently fixed by my dealership on November 4, 2014. However, it looks clearly the issue has not been resolved. At the moment, I am a bit traumatized by this apparent fire danger. Thank you marek.
