problem #4

Grand Cherokee

  • 99,000 miles
I was completely stopped at a 4-way stop sign. Each time the van in front of me moved forward, I would let off the brake to drift forward a few feet, and then re-engage the brake to stop. When the van that was directly in front of me moved forward to take its turn at the stop sign, I again let off the brake to drift forward & then re-engaged the brake. However, my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee's engine revved/idled high & it lurched forward. I smashed the brake to the floor, but the Jeep lurched forward a 2nd time. I lifted my foot for a split-second & again pushed the brake pedal as hard as I could, but the Jeep lurched forward a 3rd time & hit the van in front of me. My daughter was in the car with me & felt the Jeep lurching/jumping forward as well. Not to mention, she heard me saying that I couldn't get the Jeep to stop. I am certain I was not pressing the accelerator simultaneously because my foot was firmly/solidly on the brake pedal. If I had been on the gas, I would have hit the van much harder/faster. Now, I will be responsible for paying for the damages done to the van, as well as paying for higher insurance premiums. The truth is, I am not at fault; the Jeep is.

My 23 month old was rolling up the window on the driver side of the car when her left hand ring finger was caught in the power window, between the window and the weather stripping. The window would not unroll. The power window failed to unroll.her finger was caught inside. We were finally able to pull the weather stripping enough to unroll the window. It nearly severed her finger. Her finger was broken and cut all the way around.
