Own a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4, bought 4 mths ago, I can be driving it down a road and all the sudden it loses power like an acceleration problem, then it will suddenly just take off very quickly, the transmission keeps slipping, I can be on the interstate going 65, take my foot off the gas to slow down some and hear a harsh shifting problem. I have taken it to the dealership 3 different times, each time they tell me there is no problem with the car, I agree with the other complaints on these issues which I have had them all in 4 mths. Windows get stuck and won't roll up and down, car has not started 3 times and had to put in a new starter, crazy dangerous acceleration, shifting issues with the transmission!!!!!!!! I have owned a 1995 Jeep cherokee since 2003 and no problems, got this one and problem after problem. This acceleration/ shifting issue is going to kill someone if this car isn't recalled for this problem!!!!!.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee slowed down without warning and stalled. When restarted in park vehicle began to reverse. Upon inspection mechanic determined the gear alignment was off track and fixed the problem. The consumer was informed the gear box had to be cleaned out as well, because a liquid substance was spilled inside of it, which caused the gear lever to become misaligned. A day after the repairs were made, the consumer began to experience a gear slippage while driving. The vehicle was taken back to the dealership and upon inspection it was discovered the vehicle had a bad gear shift, which was causing the slippage. The consumer didn't have any problems for a couple days when suddenly the vehicle would not start while in park. The dealer told the consumer it was normal and that the gear just needed a small adjustment. The consumer decided to go to another dealership. It was finally determined that the shift cable was bad. The consumer requested reimbursement from the first dealer because they claimed the problem was a bad shifter module when it was really the gear shift cable.

Failure Date: 10/27/1999

Fuel sending unit failed. As a result: the check engine light will not go off, therefore I can not pass emissions test in my state. I am also constantly running out of gas. The sending unit is necessary for correct gauge readings. This has happened at the worst time for me as a single mother suffering from job losses in the state of goergia. The estimates to repair the fuel system has averaged 700. 00 dollars I am also filing a complaint about the transmission that slips too. The transmission will not go into 2nd or 3rd gear with out a lot of extra effort. There are times I have to take back roads and access roads just because I was nearly hit several times trying to access the express way. SUV's are horrendous in gas mileage but a SUV with a slipping transmission is burning even more gas! I am still trying to pay for the car and can not afford the repairs. I wish I would have bought an import. I have met quite a few Jeep owners who have experienced the same problems.
