I am the original owner of this vehicle, and a condition of low idle stalling has become progressively worse over my 8 years of ownership. The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition, and all regular maintenance has been completed and documented. In wet or damp conditions the vehicle regularly stalls, or the idle drops below a normal operating range causing the vehicle to shudder. More recently, in wet or damp conditions, when accelerating after a stop, the vehicle begins to move before experiencing near total loss of power momentarily before rpms surge and acceleration continues. This is hazardous when attempting to cross intersections, as the stalling and limp acceleration are random and cannot be predicted. Early on I had brought this issue to the dealership's attention during the warranty period but the issue could not be replicated. An independent garage also could not replicate the issue as it only occurs in wet or damp conditions. There are many documented instances of identical or similar issues with all model years of Jeep Patriots, though no remedy has been identified.

I bought this vehicle in January 2016 for our daughter to take to college out of town. I checked for recalls before I bought and found none. The vehicle was purchased from a chevy dealer. After our purchase, I filled the tank with fuel. When I pulled away from the gas station and into traffic the vehicle stalls and cuts off in the middle of two lanes of traffic. I restarted it and went about a block and the vehicle stalls out going about twenty miles per hour while I was in traffic. I made it back home and called the dealer I purchased the vehicle from and they stated they did not know anything about it. I called a local Jeep dearlership and asked a service manager and he said he has not heard of this problem. Imagine how you would feel if your child was driving a vehicle with this issue! my daughter did call yesterday, 1/24/2016 and stated she must have put too much fuel in the Jeep because it stalled out in traffic after she pulled out of the gas station. My issue with this is that it seems to be a known documented issue and has been addressed multiple times on this site. The culprit seems to be a fuel/vapor canister valve in the fuel tank and causes the vehicle to stall if filled all the way up. There has been no recalls from Jeep but you guys have documented cases. I bought the Jeep used with no warranty offered so I am stuck with this. My question is why has there not been a recall issued from your department? I do not think it is responsible for Jeep to ignore this issue nor your department ignore it also. There are a lot of complaints on the same issue with no action. I will appreciate you taking action to have Jeep resolve this immediately.

After refueling vehicle to full tank capacity, the vehicle stalls and steering wheel locks in an intersection within a few blocks from the gas station. For 2 years, this vehicle has been stalling after every gas refueling. It has now started to lock the steering wheel concurrent with the stalling. My wife, who was driving the vehicle at the time of the 8/18/15 incident felt she was in danger as cars tried to avoid the vehicle as well as almost hitting another vehicle because of the locked steering wheel.

After refueling my 2007 Jeep Patriot the car will stall in the middle of the intersection. The oil light comes on and the abs lock up. You have to turn the car on and off a few times it then sputters and will jump when accelerating. This has happened every time after the car has been filled with gas. It is getting harder an harder to re start when it stalls in the middle of the street on the way home from the gas station.

Before the snow and cold had come to northwest PA I decided to get a new vehicle. I now own a 2008 Jeep Patriot. 2 weeks ago in the negative weather my car had trouble shifting and even stalled while at a red light. It is an automatic. This morning it would not start at all. Thinking it was the battery I had my car jumped. The radio and lights worked but it would not turn over or start. We even tried to hit the starter to see if that was the problem. Still would not start. The engine light is now on the dash.

After leaving a gas station and driving about a half of mile down the road, my car started to stall. I then had to put my car in park and completely turn it off and turn it back on. When I went to turn it back on, it did not start up right away. Then the next red light that I stopped at, which was a half of mile after the first stop, my car stalled again. I then put the car back in park, put my flashers on and restarted the car. Now every time I fill my tank to full the car stalls. It is very scary and when I took it to the mechanic, he said it would cost about $1000 to replace the gas tank. Apparently, there is a valve that prevents the gas from leaking out if the car were to ever rollover. In order to fix this problem, I was told that the whole gas tank would have to be replaced.

On two occasions the vehicle failed to start, once after stalling while in motion. 1)after appropriate operation of the traction control system, the vehicle was turned off and refused to restart. Car was eventually restarted, showing an mil and reported an error p0335 crank shaft position sensor. After reset the car operated for over 100 miles trouble free. 2)about one week later, after appropriate operation of the traction control system, the vehicle stalled while doing 35 miles per hour, with the same indication as the first stall. The crankshaft position sensor was replaced after the second incident. Previous to these events the vehicle had been trouble free for 3 winters. On 9/16/2014 the dealer had flashed the pcm 68070204ag due to an error code for failure of evaporative purge flow.

My 2010 Patriot limited stalls all the time. It gets worse while sitting at a red light. I have to put the car in neutral, rev up the engine so it does not go dead. It seems to get worse if the gas tank is below 1/2 tank. Also I really thought someone was stealing my gas because the gauge goes up and down. All the info I have looked up it's all Jeep products 2010 2011 2012 2013 all have the same problems.

While driving on the highway at approximately 50mph, my car stalled. I rolled to the shoulder with the residual momentum. After waiting 3-5 minutes the car was able to turn over. I drove the car until I could get a service appointment at my local Chrysler Jeep dealer; during that time the car continued to stall randomly. Two days before my appointment, my car stalled to the point where it would not turn over. I first towed the car home, the following morning towed it to the dealership. The dealership had my car for 4 days and could not duplicate the problem or detect the origin of the malfunction. Since having the car in my possession , I have had the car stall each day in use. This car has proven to unpredictable but most of all unsafe.

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.

On 8/19/14 my 2012 Jeep Patriot had 30,666 miles. I made a right turn onto the highway out of a shopping center parking lot and as soon as I had made the turn my car stalled out. I coasted a bit and pulled into the parking lots next entrance. I parked my Jeep and turned my key as if I was shutting my car off and then tried to turn it back on. To my surprise is turned on and I drove around the parking lot a little without another issue. . I immediately called a Jeep dealer but they told me unless the issue happened again they couldn't do anything about it. I was lucky no one rear ended me. It's a very busy highway. I bought a Jeep because I thought it'd be a safe vehicle to drive myself, my husband and my 1 year old baby around in. After this happened on the highway I have been extra cautious because I'm afraid it will stall again and we may not be as lucky the next time. I hope they will recall all Chrysler vehicles made with this faulty fuel pump. We all deserve a safe vehicle.

A mechanic told me that the overflow valve is probably the problem,. He stated that when filing up with gas, it is not shutting off the nozzle flow in time, and although it isn't spilling gas on the ground it is wetting the canister. He says that throws off the air-gas calculations until the canister dries, 1-4 mins after running. In the meantime, it shutters hard and/or stalls multiple times, even while driving. His recommendation was to live with it and just manually fill up a little under full. This is because the valve can't be replaced w/o replacing the entire tank.

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.

I stopped at a convenient store on my way home from work prior to this my radio continue to turn off and on. When I went to start my Jeep back up it would not start and was smoking. I had it pulled to the dealership the next day and they told me that the starter wire had caught afire and fried the starter and possible the fuse box. Had I not stopped and continue to drive the other 15 miles home I would probably be dead. The car would have stalled on the highway in a construction zone where there would have been no place for me to pull off the highway and with no light any other car traveling the highway could have hit me and with me at a standstill and the speed limit 50 in the construction area I would possibly been killed or hurt severely. There was no warning just that the radio would cut off and on.

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.
