The car regularly stalls immediately after filling the gas tank up to full. Whether coming to a stop, or cruising, or lifting off the gas pedal while moving. Occasionally, early in the morning, it may stall also. It will restart immediately after stalling but the stalling is dangerous when driving at speed, on the highway, and/or in traffic.

Failure Date: 12/11/2017

I have owned my 2007 Jeep Patriot since June 2017. About 3 months into owning it I have noticed that it will stall directly after I fill my gas tank. After I leave the gas station, I notice that the Jeep starts to rattle and slow down, and while this is happening my steering wheel locks up and I am unable to turn and accelerate. This has happened about 10 times so far, and the most recent occurrence (12/11/17) it stalled 3 times within 5 minutes before the problem went away. There are no lights that warn me of this on the dash, making this a serious issue that could cause an accident if I were to be on a highway or busy intersection.

Failure Date: 11/30/2017

While driving around 40 mph on the highway the Jeep slowed down and stalled. No warnings or indicator lights came on at that time. Shut Jeep down and restarted waiting a few seconds before accelerating. At the time of accelerating Jeep stuttered a bit and then drove from 5 mph to 20 mph without encouragement from gas petal. Immediately applied the break and car stalled again. Again restarted the car to move off of highway and the throttle indicator light finally came on. No indications before stalls happened that there was a problem. Had to have the full body throttle and fuel injector replaced for 1500. 00/2 day repair. 2010 Jeep has 86,000 miles on it. Very concerned that there was no warning, light, or change in driving before stalling with kids in the car on the highway. It could have been a deadly accident had I not been driving at 7 am with no traffic on the road.

Failure Date: 08/03/2017

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.

Failure Date: 06/30/2017

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.

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 vehicle habitually will stall while driving. It seems to be related to getting it fueled up. I cannot get any support from the dealer regarding the issue, and it seems to be a common problem when looking on various Jeep Patriot forums.
