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.

I really hate that I have so many issues with the console electrical in my car. Mostly radio/aux/charger/starter. Since about a week after I got the car, and of corse after 3 days its not returnable. I messed up buying it brand-new, but I was excited since my car before that was my first car that I had bought in high school. I had to have the charger unit replaced so I could charge my phone. At the time I was stationed 3 hours from home, so I frequently made the trip and needed my phone charged for the gps. It's not that it wouldn't charge, but the charger had to be "turned" a specific way. It wasn't the charger. . I tried countless. Recently, within the last year, I noticed that the aux is doing the exact same thing. And yes, I've tried multiple phones and aux cords, but the cord has to be turned a "certain way" in the hole to work. It pissed me off because I had to pay to have my charger replaced, and I'm sure I'll have to pay to have this replaced too. Oh, and the starter. (or I think its the starter) about a year ago, I have to turn the key and hold it for a second to get my car to start sometimes. . Its so irritating. . I learned my lesson with buying new cars. The warranties cover nothing and they have more issues then the old camaro I bought for my first car :/.

Just outside of warranty my wife's 2007 Patriot 2. 4l started to fail to start. It was verified that it was not the battery, pcv valve, starter, or a fuel issue. It would simply not start when left in the sun (in such as a parking lot). All of the accessories worked. It was towed to three different dealerships on separate occasions. No one could figure it out. I contacted Chrysler and received a complaint number. Chrysler reimbursed me for the things the dealerships charged me to replace and eventually said that they don't know what's wrong with it and couldn't fix the car. The shocks also failed prematurely at 40 thousand miles, and the cv joints are sealed units and failed prematurely. Overall I am very dissatisfied with this car and Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
I went to get my car repaired and they gave me this service bulletin 08-007-08 for a 2008 Jeep Patriot called Jeep they told me it was the starter them we called a local repair shop they gave me this bulletin.
