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.

Info only brought vehicle in for oil change and safety recall P60/NHTSA 14V-634 was also done. Replacing alternator to prevent failure, loss of power, short....resulting in vehicle shutdown. Had to tow vehicle to dealer because what the recall was to prevent actually happened after the recall repair. Alternator burned up eventually causing loss of power to vehicle, fortunately vehicle was parked and could not be started without charging battery. Vehicle towed to dealer and they again replaced the alternator. My concern is Chrysler's fix does not fix the problem as it occurred after the recall repair was done. I will assume this was an isolated incident and the dealer accomplished the repair to my satisfaction. I do want you to have this information in a data base should more vehicles continue to fail in the same mode after the recall repair was made.

I have been trying to get the P60 Jeep Grand Cherokee recall (alternator diode) repaired since early November 2014. Two different Jeep dealerships have both said there are no parts available to make the repairs and no estimate for when parts may become available. There is no waiting list. The dealerships advised to just try calling back every couple of months. The fca customer assistance helpline provided the same information and advice. The recall notifies the driver that "the driver will have limited or no detection of the alternator failing, which can result in vehicle shutdown while driving and/or an underhood electrical fire." The fca helpline advised to not drive the vehicle if possible. How can you not drive your vehicle for over seven months" the dealerships advise it could be several additional months until parts are available. How is this an acceptable response to a clearly dangerous situation"

The navigation system goes blank mid trip screen goes on and off and switches to other media. The transmission clicks from switching from park to drive or reverse. The truck makes a weird vibration noise it sounds coarse and feels weird after 20mph. All these problems have been happening since I took the Jeep out the dealership. I always bring it back to the dealer they say they fix it and I always bring it right back with the same exact problems.

HVAC system not working correctly; system cycles off/on rapidly and unable to maintain desire internal temperature of Jeep. Has been taken to Jeep dealer twice in 3 weeks without having situation fixed. Jeep service manager states "we know of issue, have no repair at this time, but not considered an official problem by Chrysler at this time".

Drove one block from home and the battery voltage spiked to 17V. Warning sounds and messages posted on the odometer. Parking assist off; acc unavailable-service required; wipers activated even though turned off; transmission locked in D; radio screen blacked out/came back on; message read to stop, press the brake, turn engine off then place in park. Red battery icon, anti skid icon, engine icon lit on odometer plus warning sounds non stop. Took directly to the dealer where the tech tried to get a reading on all of the trouble icons. Nothing was posting on their equipment. It was decided the vehicle may need the alternator replaced. Was told to continue driving and if this happens again to turn the engine off and restart the vehicle and keep driving.
