2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 092007

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,000 miles


I bought a new 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo & at 19,600 miles I had to change the front brakes. Since changing from the oem pads that are a whopping $175 from the dealer, I instead purchased the mopar service pads for about $60. I have had problems ever since. The ears on the pads seem to make a clicking sound in the channels they ride in upon braking after a week or 2. I took it back to the dealer superior in uniontown, pa & they said it was because I didn't grease them correctly. They cleaned & greased them & the sound stopped only for about 2 weeks & then returned. I have since had to completely disassemble the calipers & pads twice to clean & grease them. Every week or 2 they start making the noise again. Now my rotors are warped & warranty is only good for 12,000 miles on the rotors. This must be a known problem to Jeep. I asked the service manager if the 2005 jgc had a technical service bulletin on the brake rotors or pads" he said it did not according to his knowledge. I'm at a loss on how to fix this problem other than buying new pads & new rotors" this was my second Grand Cherokee & it will be my last! no more Jeep for me ever again! if you've had a like experience with the 2005 jgc brakes, please post your problems & any solution that you may have found. My local Jeep dealer is of no helps & doesn't seem to care. Sincerely

- Hopwood, PA, USA
