As has been published in two other postings I see, my left tail light would work well, until I depressed the brakes, then it would go out. I had the bulb replaced 2 or 3 times, then took it to the local dealer today. $190 later, it is supposed to be repaired. We'll see...

There are two problems with this model of Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. 1) the tail light socket in this model of Jeep constantly burns out. I have replaced this socket numerous times at $8 - $10 each and have kept all of the burned out sockets as evidence. When the socket burns out, the tail lights stop working once you turn the headlights on. My vehicle has automatic headlights and this truly causes a big problem. I've visited a Jeep / Chrysler junk yard in my area and checked each tail light socket. Each socket is burned out like each of the sockets that I have in my possession. 2) the outside rail that connects the drivers seat to the risers breaks, converting the drivers seat to a rocking chair. I have spoken with the service and parts departments all of the Jeep dealers in a 100 mile radius of zip code (20744) and was told that these issues are a common problem with Jeep from 1994 to 2004. I have also spoken with several friends as well as common strangers who I see with this same model Jeep and have learned that they also have this problem and the below problems. I believe that this problems are a safety issue and warrant a safety recall. I have received two tickets on two separate occasions for the tail lights alone. I can understand having to change a light bulb every year or two but not the socket that the bulb plugs into. This is a serious defect that Chrysler will not address. Please help!
