2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 272006

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


- while driving 40 - 45 miles per hour. The contact lost control of the vehicle on a gravel/dirt road which caused a collision with a post. The contact's airbags did not deploy. The seatbelt didn't secure her in the vehicle which caused her to lose 4 front teeth and, severely injure her jaw bone and chin.

Just purchased a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I noticed when I test drove several and ended up ordering from the factory that the front seat belts are too short. While I can get the belt to buckle, I am unable to have much forward motion such as if I'm reaching for something. I am not that big so seat belt extenders should not be warranted. Never had this problem in any other vehicle, incliuding 2001 Grand Cherokee I traded. If I am carrying a passenger that is larger than me, there is bo way that they will be able to fasten the belt. Obviously, this could end up being a safety issue.

I have not purchased the vehicle. The 2005 Jeep grand cherolee has significantly shortened the front seat belts, to the point where a larger individual would be totally unable to buckle the belt, even with the seat all the way back. I do not have this problem with my 1999 Grand Cherokee, or any other vehicle I have ever owned or rented. The significantly shorter seat belt will cause people not to buckle up, and is a safety hazard for any driver.
