Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • 55,250 miles


2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee - seat & airbag deployment sensors - check engine light came on, and took vehicle to dealer for inspection. Dealer stated that seat sensor tied to airbag deployment velocity was malfunctioning ($300 to replace). Dealer re-checked next day and found all 4 sensors malfunctioning (when 150# man sits in seat, sensors read 250# man). Now all 4 sensors need to be replaced ($1000) and fasten seatbelt light/bell sound endlessly. Dealer won't replace (out of warranty), neither will Jeep.

My wife and I purchased a 2006 Jeep wk 4X4 on Feb 20 2006. As soon as we left the dealership with 150 miles on it the air bags malfunctioned and had to be repaired. About 1 week after the repairs they malfunctioned again and where fixed again only to malfunction 2 more times and the dealership said there was no problems and cleared the codes. At the 3000 mile service there was an oil leak on the front crank seal which was replaced. It has also been in the shop 5 times due to an engine malfunction light in which case there was a multiple cylinder misfire, the dealership said there where no problems and cleared the code every time only for it to come back on. I just picked my vehicle up from the dealer again because the crank pulley and dampener where wobbling real bad and the check engine light was on again for the same reason. All repairs where made and after I left the dealership 15 miles down the road the light came back on. The transmission shudders when I'm stopped and shifts real hard. The dealership said its fine and there is now evidence of that. All these incidents are ongoing since the day it was purchased.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo. 8 pm. Turning right into my driveway, foot on brake, sudden unintended acceleration occurred, car raced down steep driveway, roaring, I turned it uphill into trees, and it was stopped by trees. Still revving loudly until key turned off. Air bags did not deploy. Front end pretty smashed up.
