Finally took vehicle in and took mechanic for test drive and they said the rear shock was leaking oil and they replaced it . This handling occurred from the day I pick the vehicle up .

My car makes a terrible noise on suspension, first started on the back of the car, I`ve send it to a local Jeep dealer to repair it on warranty and after 4 visits they change my shock absorbers (rear), right after that, the noise disappeared for a couple of days and return again, I went again to the dealer, they refused to change it again and set up a meeting with Jeep local warranty manager in pr, their representative drove the car along with me, heard the noise and said, there was nothing they could do, because this was a problem with all Jeep cars from that year (2012) and there was no way to fix it (it might have a recall someday) but I should keep it that way since there were no risk. Then he authorized (after I insist) to change it again the shock absorbers (rear), this time the noise was gone for 2 weeks and came back again. The noise returned again louder, it seems my front and back wheels are loose and I hear a noise on the front of the car (and felt on the steering wheel like something was loose) every time I hit the brakes. On April-2014 I called again Jeep representative in pr and explained all that was happening, he then set up another service on Chrysler/Jeep dealer puerto rico and on 04/21/2014 the dealer representative took my car for repair and said they changed again the shock absorbers (rear) for the third time and also changed another piece to fix the front noise. Again for 2 weeks the rear noise disappeared and now returned louder and also on the front of the car makes a snap noise every time I start the car and sometimes when I make turns (left and right). My warranty expires on 28/Feb/2015 and it seems Chrysler/Jeep is just pushing it until I hit this date and no longer be responsible for the repair. I`m afraid for my family`s security since we use this car on daily basis on freeways here in pr for our commute.

The cooling fan blade just broke while stopped at a light. It made the car thump I thought someone hit us but the fan blades broke the fan shrode and put dents all in the radiator and broke the fan guard. This vechile has had many of the same problems due to the electrical system. We lease the Jeep and have put $$$ in it because they would not take it back as a lemon with in the 2 years. I still hear a beep coming from under the dash that Jeep never found the problem or fixed it. I just had the fan relay changed because it went out. With in the first 2 years I had it in the shop for a variety of electrical problems I have all the paper work. I am afraid the Jeep will catch on fire or cause an accident. I've also checked many other things that were issues with the Jeep. Leaking shocks and transmission pan and emissions is now leaking. The check engine light stays on and every time I get it checked it's a different problem. I'm out of my warranty now but there have been so many different things wrong. The dealer replaced 2 of 4 leaking shocks they left the transmission pan loose when they replaced a part in the transmission. This Jeep is unsafe for the road it has lost power in the past while traveling so they replaced the battery twice with in a month.

The consumer had the vehicle in the shop almost 10 times for repairs. The consumer argued that the power steering was out of order and she was unable to steer the vehicle in reverse. The vehicle had experienced other problems such as the drive pinion, heating pads, brake rotors, calipers, pads, power steering pump, the rear shock absorbers and rear sway bar links. The dealer was contacted about the problems no help was offered. It had appeared that there had been a recall issued for the Grand Cherokees built only from Nov 22- Dec 5 2000 for the power steering and the consumer missed it by a month, but the vehicle experienced the same problem as the recall that was issued. The consumer was very dissatisfied with the dealership. The vehicle also experienced three tire blowouts. The consumer was told the problem was caused by the gear box, there was a recall regarding the issue, however the consumers vehicle was not included in the recall. The front pinion seal leaked.
