Only 904 miles and found transmission fluid on my garage floor. I took it back to dealer, no parts available. I got a rental car. It took 6 days for part to come in .

problem #3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,800 miles

2014 Jeep Cherokee, started leaking fluid...

2 Trips to dealer... 1st time dealer said it was oil pan. Started leaking again, then said it was from axles.

Changed to a new dealer, said it was transmission fluid. Called Chrysler replaced O Rings still leaks.

4 Trips to 2 different Dealers no Solution yet.

Called Chrysler Customer Service and their customer service is terrible.

Worst car purchase I've ever made. Will never buy Jeep or Chrysler again.
