2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

I read in the news today that the NHTSA is investigating the brakes on a number of GM products. I wish that you had included Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes for 1999 through 2004 models. The design is such that pulsation, sometimes severe, occurs after 10K to 15K miles due to the rotors warping. My dealer either resurfaces the existing rotors or replaces them at no charge. In 1999 the dealer blamed the problem on a new design and supplier problems. My 2004 model had to be taken in for pulsating front brakes at 18,500 miles, and I was told that Chrysler was locked into a contract with their supplier that they could not break, which is why substandard parts continue to be supplied but replaced at no charge. For Chrysler to go through 5 model years knowing they were supplying substandard brake components is inexcusable! the brake problem with their 1999 model was an engineering and/or supplier problem. The brake problem with the 2004 model is a senior management problem. Brake work done on my 1999 model and 2004 model was done exclusively by the local Jeep dealer, and those records are in their system should you wish to pursue this. The VIN number of the 1999 model, with which I experienced multiple brake problems was VIN [xxx] and the 2004 model experiencing the same problem is VIN [xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)
