My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls without warning for months now. Now it is starting to hard start or not start at all and continues to stall when I am driving. I have been to the dealership 10+ times and they have found "nothing wrong" but have attempted to fix other problems that I have had to pay for that have still not fixed the problem. It has not been able to be recreated even though they have kept it for a week multiple times and put hundreds of additional miles on it. This is a serious accident and health issue when I am driving on the street or highway from 25/35+ mph and all of a sudden it just stalls and there is not power stearing or control at all. It also "jerks" sometimes when I push on the gas when accelerating. There has been a recall regarding some 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokees but they say not mine. If I have continuously have this issue, why is mine not recalled as well??? I do understand that vehicle recalls are VIN specific although the manufacturer could have placed a defect part into mine also. I have asked for a monitor to be placed on my vehicle to "get the codes if possible when it stalls" but have been told "no" 2+ times from the dealer. I do not have another vehicle to use when ever I need and have had to wait up to 2 weeks to get it to the dealer due to dealer rental availability.

I have received a safety recall notice for my vehicle which explains that there is a defective part that would impose a hazard to myself and other occupants safety and that it is extremely important to take steps to repair my vehicle, however the manufacturer has no current remedy since there are no parts available and cannot provide me with a specific date for when the parts will become available. I do not feel safe driving the vehicle and feel that the manufacturer should provide a safe vehicle replacement untill they are able to replace the defective part(s).

My Jeep has repeatedly shuttered and stalled when starting, both before and after the tipm recall was serviced. The locks also pop on and off repeatedly and won't stop. The rear tail light bulbs have had to be replaced multiple times (in excess of 4 times). There is also a long groan that happens when idling and sometimes when driving. The car has been unable to start properly and shakes violently before just completely shutting itself off without prompt. I have asked Jeep about it 3x and they have done nothing to assist other than perform the recall after making me wait several months for the parts.
