2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

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.

Dealer carl burger Dodge and Chrysler is aware of a defective 4WD warning light (Chrysler service bulletin no. 21-014-06 rev a dated Nov. 2, 2006), that when I brought my vehicle in to service on December 12, 2007, they demanded to charge me $75 (which I actually paid). I objected and raised the issue with both the service advisor and the service manager. They claimed because my mileage was slightly beyond 36,000 miles (37,912 miles to be exact), they had no obligation to diagnose and correct a known manufacturer's defect. This is wrong as a matter of law.
