Jeep Patriot owners have reported 96 problems related to car stall (under the engine and engine cooling category).
I have had my car stall on the highway at a high speed and also at low speed at least 7 times since I have owned it. I have contacted a Jeep dealer and also Jeep customer service. They will not fix under a recall. I have researched this problem a lot and it has happened several times to several people.

After pumping gas, less than a mile into my trip home, my Jeep's started stalling, the power steering went off (I couldn't easily turn the steering wheel) and it died in the middle of the road. I turned the key in the ignition to the off position, then back on and I was able to started it. I only moved about 500 feet and then it happened again. I turned it off, back on again and the same thing happened a third time, as I was getting home. I sat on my parking spot and the Jeep was stalling but it didn't die again. I looked up Jeep forums and it seem to be a common problem and people resolve it by not filling the tank all the way. Needless to say it was a very scary experience and it could've easily caused an accident.

My 2014 Patriot is a 5 speed manual transmission with a 2. 4 l engine. It has just under 54000 miles and has recently (within the past few months) started stalling while driving. Luckily not super seriously to the point of losing all power and being stranded, but it's getting worse. Thought I was imagining it due to no sensor or warning lights, then one day for a split second the etc light flashed. It's never flashed since and the car would never do anything when my boyfriend drove it. Last week while stopped, waiting to make a right turn on dry pavement my traction control light flashed. Finally last week as well my boyfriend felt it started temporarily while he was driving, on the freeway. Now it has started not starting. All electrical will work, but absolutely nothing as far as engine. It had only done that couple times, now, today it did it four times in 4 hours. The fifth time it started to turn over, then died mid-turnover and wouldn't start again. It says there was originally a recall on this and a couple other years Patriot, compass and some other Chrysler models. Not sure if mine was fixed or not now due to the problem arising at this point in time. I've only had the Jeep since may 2015. Contacted the dealer and I'll be taking it in hopefully next week but I have a deductible. 'if' my bumper to bumper warranty covers it, I'll have rental coverage which is better than some other people's stories I've read. Is there anyone else experiencing more recent issues? most of what I've read was from last year sometime. I've also read that Chrysler knows of this being a more current issue and refusing to do anything.

Driving on the highway at 55 mph the Jeep stalled. I almost got rearended. After a few minutes it did start again. Again it happened on a city street at 35 mph. The Jeep stalled. It would not start again. I had to get it towed to the dealership .
Jeep Patriot stalls within about a mile of filling the gas tank, steering wheel locks and is very dangerous. I was stopped at a red light luckily. Problem needs to be recalled ASAP, gas tank needs to be replaced to fix the problem. Happens to a lof of Patriot owners in cars from 2007-2009. Please recall. Please!!!!!!!.

After filling gas tank at any gas station, the vehicle starts and drives approximately 100 to 200 feet and stalls. This is normally in traffic while starting out at an inter-section. This happens every time I fill up with gas.

For the past 3 weeks the vehicle will randomly not start. It will eventually start after several attempts. It acts like its not getting fuel ant the "etc" warning light comes on. Recently my wife was driving on the expressway at 60 mph and the car suddenly stalled in the middle lane without any warning lights. She was eventually able to get it restarted and drive home. I have had it at the mechanic several times and cannot duplicate the starting issue or stale issue. Replaced relays after reading that there are known issues with relay box due to corrosion and placement of relays in wheel well but this didn't help. There is obviously a serious computer / electrical problem with this model. I have read dozens of posts about very similar issue and unfortunately found that there is no fix from dealers and no information about possible causes. I'm very concerned with the staling issue since it is extremely unsafe. Please help.
The car stalls frequently in the middle of the street. Dealer replaced crankshaft position sensor in June 2016 and insisted the problem is unrelated to the recall that already exists which causes stalling. Less than 1 year and approximately 12,000 miles later the car is stalling frequently again - every time the car is put in reverse and approximately 3-4 times more every 20 minutes.
Shortly after filling the gas tank of my 2007 Jeep Patriot (49xxx miles) I was coming to a 4 way intersection (only my side and the opposite side of the intersection has stop signs). As I was pulling through the intersection my Jeep Patriot stalled and I lost my power steering and brakes. I was almost struck on the passenger side by a vehicle traveling from the right side of the intersection from my orientation of the intersection. I tried to restart the vehicle for about 5 minutes to no avail. It would start and then immediately stall again. After almost being struck 5-6 times and after about 5 minutes of being stuck in the middle of an intersection I managed to start the vehicle up and drive it home by driving about 15 miles per hour on backroads for the remaining 2 miles to my house. After searching the internet to find the problem I found that this is a common issue among many Jeep Patriot/compass owners and nothing has been done to address the issue. Please look into this issue as myself and my passenger (fiancee) could have been seriously injured if not for sheer luck.

On 3/21/2017 and on 3/22/2017 the vehicle stalled while in motion at different speeds 4 times. The battery was replaced due to this and the alternator was tested as to having no issue. It happens at various speeds from 25-70 mph and causes me to have to pull over to the side of the road when it stalls out which is very dangerous for anyone operating the vehicle and other vehicle operators that may be around me when this happens. Usually the car will start back up and run for another period of time before it happens again. Chrysler has had multiple complaints filed about this on multiple websites and with this agency however the recalls implemented for this problem have only pertained to certain models none of which were related to my model of the Jeep Patriot. Again this has happened on city streets and highways and have yet to have a dealer or mechanic be able to diagnose the problem. Thanks.
Purchased my 2014 Jeep Patriot pre-owned from a local Jeep dealership. Approximately 9 months ago I was driving and the engine sputtered and shut down. I was going 55 and it all of the sudden slowed to 30mph. Thank goodness I was able to get my car to the shoulder of the road. As soon as I got to the shoulder, I shut the car off then restarted and was fine and I was able to get home. Then 3 days after the first incident it happened again. I contacted the dealership and they said they hadn't heard of such an issue. Debated on taking the vehicle in anyway but next time it started and has driven without stalling since then. Well, a week ago I was driving and the gas pedal started acting up again where it felt like it had a brief lag in the acceleration. I stopped for gas on my way home and the vehicle would not start again. This vehicle is a death trap! I am scared every time I get behind the wheel that its going to try to stall while I am driving or I will end up stranded somewhere. In purchasing a Jeep I always thought the Jeep brand was supposed to be a reliable vehicle, not so much now. I will never waste my money on one of their vehicles again!.
The contact owns a 2012 Jeep Patriot. While driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was able to restart. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the crank shaft sensor connector needed to be repaired. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 61,000. The VIN was not provided.
Every so often while driving and sometimes while car is not moving the electronic throttle control light comes on and the car stalls out, sometimes when its on long time the vehicle stability control light comes on , it seems to happen more the colder it is outside ,can not seem to find the problem but seems to be a common problem with the Patriot and other Chrysler models not sure why Chrysler hasn't done anything to resolve this issue.
While driving to work the car attempted to stall and the etc light came on. The car seemed to go neutral, then gag, then regained it's composure. I immediately pulled off. Car was in cold weather but never had this issue before, in mn. Temps the manual said it was the etc electric throttle control, but didn't indicate it was a major concern, unless light stayed on . What would be a major concern other than getting rear ended by a pile of cars? I've never had this with any car, it was totally a new light I've never seen. I made it to work afterwards. On the way back home, the etc light came on again -- flashing, then off -- car stayed rolling. Perhaps it is more inclined to stall going uphill with the etc, and while it's rolling downhill, less inclined to stall? who knows, but I don't think this is just a couple Patriots out there, because there's already more than 500 people who've complained of this issue. I contacted dealer - but they did not admit to any recalls for my Patriot - even when I stated others have had this exact issue. I am very reluctant to take my Jeep anywhere but a few blocks in this winter weather. This was truly the first time I felt unsafe in it. Mileage is 89,000. However, should an accident occur I will certainly sue the company.

When I fill up my gas tank to full, within a mile of leaving the gas station the car completely stalls while driving. The steering and the breaks lock up and I have no control of the car. I have to put the car in neutral and turn it on and off to start working again. This is very unsafe and dangerous while driving! this recently started to happen on a car with minimal miles on it.
The contact owns a 2014 Jeep Patriot. While driving approximately 40 mph, the traction control and check engine warning indicators illuminated. The vehicle started to vibrate abnormally and stalled. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000.
Car decelerates while driving almost stalling at times, I have taken it to the dealership several times and they state they cannot duplicate the problem but I don't think they tried since they had my vehicle for two days for diagnostics/testing driving and drove less than 10 miles. Vehicle is very unsafe. This is the 2nd Patriot I have owned and will be my last.

After fueling with gas, my vehicle immediately stalled. It was then fine after I restarted it until I got to a roundabout where it stalled again, losing all power steering, brakes, power, speed, in heavy traffic. It was fine for a week after this until I got gas again, in which case, I was just about to enter the interstate when it stalled again, losing all of the basic functions again in rush hour traffic where I had to sit on the side of the road for 20 minutes while my vehicle ran and stalled repeatedly until it worked itself out. This is a very dangerous situation and could have been much worse had I already been on the interstate. This is a definite issue that needs to be taken seriously and fixed as I see I am not the only one that has had this issue. I got gas again last week where afterwards my Jeep stalled on main street during lunch traffic. I shouldn't have to be scared to put gas in my vehicle in case it decides to stall in another dangerous situation. I am worried about my safety and any passengers I may have with me at any point in time when it stalls and stops working completely while I am driving down any road. I am also concerned that I will be doing more wear and tear damage on my battery and starter as I am trying to restart my vehicle after it stalls on these roads with minimum to no shoulders. Thank you for your immediate attention to this horrible issue.
The Jeep stalled on the highway two separate times. We were traveling 65 mph and lost all power from engine. We were fortunately able to pull into break down lane. Jeep was taken to dealership after each episode, but they were unable to locate problem. Very dangerous. Complaint filed with Jeep. Jeep sits in driveway, afraid to use it. . Not good!!!.
Right after filling the gas tank my car sputtered and stalled while driving away from the gas station.
The contact owns a 2013 Jeep Patriot. While driving approximately 20 mph, the vehicle stalled and the electronic stability control warning indicator illuminated. The contact shifted to neutral and continued driving. The past week, the same failure occurred daily. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the electronic stability control failed and advised the contact to take the vehicle to a dealer. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 76,000.
