2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee HVAC system blend doors have failed, so that automatic climate control system fails to control temperature and blows very hot or cold air at inappropriate times. Impossible to maintain constant temperature in the vehicle.

Purchased new 2004 Jeep from dealer. Within the first month of ownership, I began experiencing occasional, intermittent engine problems at start-up-- the engine would run very rough, shaking the vehicle. The service light in the dash would flash. If driven, the engine would stall unless the accelerator was continually pressed. After a few of these events, we discovered that, if turned off, after about 5 minutes, the engine would run normally. The service light would remain on for a few minutes (sometimes a half hour) and then turn off. This problem re-occurred intermittently, sometimes every month, & sometimes every couple months, usually in the morning at first startup, but sometimes when I left work in the evening to drive home. My salesman and the service manager knew of the problem. Jeep dealer later said that the vehicle was simply in need of a complete tune-up. They did the tune up 6 months ago - May 2006. The problem has recurred again. I took the Jeep in again. Dealer reports that car is "running rough" but they can not find the problem.

Consumer complained that the belt will not stay in the child's safety seat. The harness that keeps the child in the seat will not stay in the seat. It disconnects from the seat at times. Had to rig up the harness so that child will stay in the car seat. Also, handle does not lock. While putting child in the car seat it dumped him out of the car seat twice. He sustained injuries, hitting his face and head. Consumer called the manufacturer, and they did not fix this car seat.
