Jeep Patriot owners have reported 40 problems related to car stall (under the engine and engine cooling category).
A week after purchasing the 2008 Jeep Patriot from a used car dealership the Jeep stalled after filling up the tank. I called the dealer and he said to put dry gas in the tank. I did and the Jeep would jerk a few times after refueling. On 1/14/15 the Jeep stalled in the middle of a busy street minutes after my 17 year old filled the tank. Thank god she did not get into an accident. This is extremely dangerous since the Jeep stalled without warning. I took the Jeep to my mechanic but he couldn't identify the issue. I know there are Jeep owners who are experiencing the same problem and the manufacturer is doing nothing about it. Please investigate before someone gets into a fatal accident.

While driving my car, I slowed down to turn into a parking lot. . As I was turning, the car cut off. . There was no warning or noises. Just dead. . I was able to restart it with no problems. . Later that day I was pulling out of a parking spot and it cut off again. It is still covered under the warranty so I took it to the dealership. After a full day they told me that they can't duplicate my problem and no service lights were on so they gave me my car back. Told to wait till a light comes on. I have given it 1 week with it cutting off several times. And yet no engine light is on. . I am so scared to drive my car especially after someone almost hit me when it stalled. Lastly, while driving my car, I was turning at a major intersection and it stalled again in the middle of the street. Next up, dealership tomorrow morning.

Was traveling down a city street. After approximately 100 feet past an intersection, the warning chime and check engine came on approximately a few seconds before the vehicle completely stalled. I lost brakes and power steering. Attempting to switch transmission to park and neutral while vehicle was coasting but could not. I have a bad back so I did not utilize the parking/emergency brake. Once vehicle came to a stop I was able to force the transmission to park after a few attempts. Tried restarting vehicle and it would just continously crank, but would not turn over. Had public assistance to help get it in neutral and push the vehicle off the busy roadway. Called dealership and was advised to have it towed in. Called for tow, was taken to dealer for repair. Dealer replaced crank sensor and updated pcm.

My car stalls frequently after filling it up with gas. The local dealer has explained to me that the fuel pump sensor is backordered and is unavailable. My car frequently stalls when pulling out of a gas station into traffic. This is a dangerous situation. The car is still under warranty, but the part is unavailable. It is my opinion that my car should be taken off the road until that part it available, but I'm not in a position to replace it with another one.

I have a 2010 Jeep Patriot sport with 50000 miles on it. I also had the dealership install an auto start for winter months to warm up car. I drove the car on Dec 7 for 10 miles traveling at a speed of 40. I stopped home for 15 minutes and when I restarted my car a red flashing lightning bolt lit up on my dash which was the throttle accompanied by the off road traction control. I backed out the car and it was shaking and loud. I decided to drive another vehicle a few days later I drove it to the dealership taking the backroads and it would not go over 20 mph and shook frequently. I was concerned for my safety. I have a lifetime powertrain engine warranty and thomas Dodge dealership in highland, in is not covering under warranty. They state the throttle is not a component of the engine or power train. The cost of repair is $690. I was wondering if any recalls exist on the Chrysler, Dodge and Jeeps in regards to throttle body assembly and to consider my model, make and year.

My Jeep Patriot has a very unusual problem of going into "limp" mode under normal operating conditions--even after as little of 15 minutes of driving. The "transmission overheat" light comes on, and the vehicle's on-board computer forces the vehicle down to slow, sub-highway speeds--even as slow as 35 mph. The problem has been very dangerous for us (especially on the freeway) and occurs under normal (and even cold temperatures). It is not remedied by replacing the transmission oil or even installing a transmission oil cooler (both which I have tried). I have brought the vehicle to numerous mechanics--including the dealership and a transmission shop--which have all been stumped by the issue. After learning about and thoroughly diagnosing the problem, the transmission shop concluded that something very unusual was wrong with the transmission, and they wrote a statement to that effect. After experiencing this dangerous, frequent problem with my Jeep Patriot, I started a website to collect responses from other Jeep owners. In the short period of time the website has been up (jeeppatriottransmissionoverheat. Com), I have received many submissions from other owners who have the same problem (and all of which have attested that the dealership was ultimately stumped by the problem). The problem is found on vehicle years ranging from 2007-2014. Some owners believe the koho bearings are the root of the problem, but in any event, a complete transmission replacement is the only known remedy. After researching this problem thoroughly, as well as reviewing existing recalls on the vehicle, I am now confident that the problem is widespread (exists on 1,000+ Patriots), is found on new and used Patriots of all mileages, is very dangerous, and has been ignored by Jeep. It is my opinion that a safety recall should be issued by the NHTSA, after conducting its own research.
I purchased this 2014 Patriot four weeks ago with, I have not even made a first payment. Yesterday while driving in a parking lot my Jeep lost all power. I was shifted into drive and would hit the gas pedal and nothing would happen. There was absolutely no warning that is was going to stall, no indicator lights ever turned on. I placed the Jeep in park and turned off the ignition. Turned it back on, it was not immediate there was some lag on the start and was able to drive it again. I took it to my local dealership today to be inspected after a few hours they told me they could find nothing wrong and sent me on my way. I have investigated further and found that the 2011/2012 models have been investigated for this same problem in the past. This is a terrifying and dangerous occurrence that must be resolved. I am now fearful that this will reoccur in much more congested or high speed conditions.

While driving to work, I was slowing down to stop behind a bus but then had the oppurtunity to pass the bus. As I tried to switch lanes, my car stalled and I was stuck in between two lanes. I had to slowly drift my car to the side of the road and could hardly steer it. Once pulled over to the side of the road I tried to restart but the car would not restart. After sitting for five minutes, the vehicle restarted and I was able to drive without a problem. The first dealership said that it could have stalled because it was wet outside, which is completely unreasonable. At the second dealership, I didn't receive a much better explanation. They said that it could have been static electricity which caused it to turn off. As of right now, it has not happened again but it has not been a week since the incident.
On a regular basis vehicle sputters and almost stalls out while vehicle is moving and while vehicle is at a complete stop. On two occasions vehicle stalled out completely while driving. Foot was on gas, approximate speed was 25mph, car completely shut off. Would not start up right away. Had to sit for several minutes before vehicle would start up again. Vehicle has been at huntington dealership twice for this problem and they have found nothing.
Vehicle stalls without warning and leaves the driver without power steering, loss of all control until the car is restarted. When slowing down from higher speeds with clutch pushed in the car stalls. It is a random problem. First time - as I was slowing down to make a turn I pushed in the clutch then the brake and started to make my turn and about to put the car into second gear, I realized I had no control since the car stalled while in the middle of the turn with traffic coming. I was able to get the car started again and get out of the way of oncoming traffic. This has happened dozens of times. From the first week of driving, this has been a problem. It is hard to recreate the problem since it catches the driver by surprise each time. Each time the driver is left without control. This is a major safety issue.
After fueling up, my Jeep sputters and loses power to the point is almost stalls. Last night after a fuel up it stalled several times. This is terribly problematic at highway speeds. Something needs to be done about this. I have had my scheduled maintenance done, services the fuel intake, filters, pumps and throttle body. Had a tune up done and the engine is still doing this. It is a safety issue and I do not want to drive this car any longer. I fear for my safety! please advise.

On a Saturday, my wife was on the freeway driving about 70mph, away from home, heavy traffic and 3 kids in the Patriot. The Jeep lost all power (saw the red lightening bolt indicator on the dash), then stalled and she had to immediately transition to the edge of the freeway, which had a very narrow shoulder. She attempted for an hour and a half to start the Jeep. A state trooper showed up advised it was unsafe for the kids. The trooper took the kids to the local Chrysler/Jeep dealer. The Jeep was taken to local dealer. The sales manager, after the Jeep came off the tow truck was able to start the Jeep. He said maybe she accidentally activated the 4wd, then proceeded to tape it down and told her if it runs ok on Sunday she should be ok to drive home. My wife was able to drive the Patriot Sunday and started home on Monday. About 30 miles from home it happened again, the lightening bolt, lost all power and it stalled. She was on the freeway at 70mph and had to merge to the shoulder with medium traffic conditions. She tried to start the Patriot for 40 minutes, it did not start. While waiting for the tow truck a chp officer stopped, stated as the trooper had previously, it was unsafe for the kids to be on the freeway. He took them to the local Chrysler/Jeep dealer so they would be safe. Bottom line "the Jeep lost all power (saw the red lightening bolt indicator on the dash), then stalled" twice in 3 days. Chrysler/Jeep to date has stated, if there are no codes there is nothing they can do. This vehicle is unsafe to drive as indicated by my wife's experience and 7 other complaints listed on this site. Please do something about this unsafe vehicle condition before somebody gets killed.

I am writing in regard to the investigation pe12-032. I own a 2012 Jeep Patriot. The vehicle has stalled repeatedly (4 times - 2 times in July 2012, 1 time in November, and 1 time in December) when cruising at a steady highway speed (65 to 75 mph) on a slight down gradient on the interstate. Each time the vehicle had been on the road for two hours or more prior to becoming disabled and required a tow from the highway. Each time the vehicle had between 1/8th and 3/8ths of a tank of fuel. When the Patriot was unloaded from the flat bed tow truck, it started immediately on each occasion and the Chrysler repair shops could not find a code that indicated the vehicle experienced any problem. The dealers said because there were no diagnostic codes, they would not fix anything. Please help me resolve the issue. I will give you any help I can. Chrysler's case number is [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).

Our 2009 Jeep Patriot has stalled out over 35 times since October of 2011 after moving from California to florida. The issue of the Jeep Patriot stalling out always occurs at an intersection while waiting for the light turn green. The stalling out issue is more likely to occur on most, humid days. However, it has occurred on dry, humid days and on a rare occurrence, at night. The vehicle manufacture, Chrysler Jeep and the dealership have no answer for the problem since it has been reported, but they mechanics don't know how to "fix" or "repair" the problem of the Jeep Patriot stalling. It has to do with the Chrysler Jeep corporate offices not sending out a repair alert to dealerships and also because the problem of stalling cannot register on their computer diagnostic tests. The safety of the 2009 Jeep Patriot is a concern with my family since stalling out can result in an accident or a low provability of being a fatal rear end accident.
