Notes: There's no way around it, the Cherokee's transmission is junk. There's no other explanation for why a vehicle, usually with under 40,000 miles, would have so many complaints

problem #1

Jul 242014

Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • 3,500 miles
1. bell for key in ignition comes on, but key is out. 2. print out says, four wheel drive temporarily unavailable. 3. active handling icon stays lit. (car has already been into dealer for this. Computer was re-flashed.) 4. cruise control will not come on. 5. I have still not received my mulroney sticker for my vehicle. The consumer stated the Jeep would go out of control, when it was being towed behind a motor home. After towing it a few hundred miles, the Jeep started rocking back and forth in a violent motion while driving straight on the interstate. The electronic stability control light illuminated on the dash of the Jeep. It remained on, after the motor home was disconnected. The dealer cleared the code. However, when the consumer hooked up the wiring for the tow system, the light illuminated again. Updated 06/15/15. Updated 07/15/15.
