Grand Cherokee

  • 27,000 miles


Purchased 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee new. Within first 6 months have been taking it bake to the dealer for intermittent lack/stalling. This happens while driving at different speeds and mostly making slight turns or when I begin to turn as well as up and down hill. This has been going on for the last 2 yrs, but most recently has happened alot more offend. I have taken it to the dealer with no result each time. Within the last 2 weeks is has stalled at least 7 times. 9/27/08 I was injured from slamming the breaks and fighting the steering to avoid a head on collision at an intersection while starting to make a turn. I did take it to the dealer and again with no result. The day I dropped it off at the dealer it shut down in their lot. I was told that this would have been recorded in the codes, but they told me they found nothing. The next day it stalled while dropping my son off at school. He was with me when I was injured so I can prove it does happen. I did call the dealer back and that was 3 days ago. They will not return my phone call let alone honor my warranty. This car is not safe.

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

  • 38,000 miles
Update: The braking system, primary and emergency, failed at approximately 6:30 am 5/13/2008. My wife was unable to bring the vehicle under control traveling down an unpaved hill and had a head-on collision with a boulder. We have called the attorney and we are awaiting a call bck at this time. Chrysler and scheid are going to wish they never heard of me now. They can shove their bs "repurchase" offers up their┐!@#$%.

I bought my 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 used at 40,000 a year ago this month. Shortly after owning it it started stalling while in motion or stopped in gear such as a traffic light. When sitting still, coasting and slowing down, the vehicle would die. The instrument panel did not light up and everything seemed normal until I took my foot off the brake to accelerate or just accelerated from a coast (such as a school zone slowly moving traffic), then I would realize the car had stalled. If I was on a hill going up the car would take off backwards. Dies turning into parking lots, etc. I loose power steering. The brakes stopped me if I applied them. However, if I was in the forward moving position, I would just throw it in neutral and re-start the engine without problem. This concerned me, because I buy my vehicles used, I did not know if dirty injectors and throttle body was causing carbon residue to clog the injectors so I had it all cleaned. That did not fix the problem. I started researching on this site and spoke to the guys that do my service. The researched and found a notice about safety. I went to Jeep website and found that there was such a notice about the brake system failure but no recall. Several weeks later I received a recall notice and 2 computer flash updates were needed. This fixed my problem, at least since late November 2007.
