Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2014 (and 2015) Jeep Grand Cherokee shows an early trend of transmission complaints. Most of the complaints are for rough shifting — things like jerking & hesitation when shifting gears.

We are keeping an eye on things but the 2014 Grand Cherokee doesn't look like a good model year compared to past years.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • 9,500 miles
I was driving on the highway where I spend most of my time while in my vehicle putting over 30K miles on my car in one year to get back and forth to work and while jumping on a major route 101A in nh where cars drive very fast my engine shuts down and I can not do anything but put on my hazard lights and hope the cars passing at 65mph dont hit me. This happened at least 3 - 5 times afterward and even a couple of times after having the dealer looking into the vehicle and I have been told it was a software update but they are unable to provide me with the details of what the software update is and what it resolves. I have since had the issue and brought it in for service numerous times and I told the same thing over and over and they keep reinstalling my software and tell me that it's all set and I am no longer satisfied nor feel safe in my vehicle that I put a lot of highway miles to get back and forth to work. Please help since nobody is able to help me and since I put on so many miles I am unable to be covered by the lemon law within a short period of owning the vehicle and its very frustrating.

Received notification of safety recall P14/NHTSA 14V-154 in may, 2014. Called the dealer. They put the vehicle on list and promised to call when they received parts. Multiple calls to dealer have yielded no results. I am told repeatedly that I am on list and they will call when the parts come in. Received 2nd recall notice for same recall: P14/NHTSA 14V-154 August 12, 2014. Again I called the dealer with no results. I am continually told I am on list and they will be in touch.

I have no had an incident yet but none of the dealerships are claiming to have the part available and say it is on back order. This is ridiculous that a safety recall is in effect and they do not make every attempt to remedy the problem for a customer who just spent $50,000.

1) driving ~ 45 mph. 2) parking/crash detection sensor on the front driver side makes audible noise for 2 seconds, then noise ceases - this parking/crash detection issue was reported to the dealership 3 days prior. 3) all consoles go blank, to include speedometer (which is digital), temperature, navigation, etc. (driver & center consoles) - hands free phone call linked within the vehicle disconnects midway through call at this time as well. 4) engine appears operational, but seems to be in a lower gear and acceleration is problematic, brakes are sluggish. 5) electrical system in the vehicle reboots while driving ~10 seconds later, displaying multiple warning messages (check engine light, low battery voltage, no ABS, suspension system, etc.). 6) pulled the car over at the first safe location ~1/4 mile. 7) vehicle would not go into park, applied emergency brake and turned vehicle off. 8) restarted vehicle, check engine and low battery voltage light remains on, but vehicle appears stable enough to drive ~2 miles home.

To whom it may concern took my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee in for recall work on the cluster panel and brakes. When I got it back the brakes you had to press halfway to the floor to stop the vehicle and also has a small vibration as soon as you step on them. I brought this to the dealerships attention and he said he needed to order a brake booster and it may take awhile. He said he has a backlog of orders that are over a month and a half old. I'm concerned about driving this vehicle as it is today because of the brake issue. That's why I'm writing you today to see if you can give me any assistance in getting this matter resolved. Thank you,

Purchased my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee in February of 2014. Vehicle randomly displays "parking brake engaged" and the brake light keeps flashing. Even when the message does not display the brake light will randomly start flashing and doesn't stop. Took it to the dealer in June. They tell me this issue is not part of the recall issue with the brakes but they don't know what's wrong with it.
