Grand Cherokee

  • 1,200 miles


Lost all power while driving on highway on Friday of memorial day weekend. Lost brakes and steering too. Luckily was able to coast to a stop on the shoulder. Tried to restart multiple times, and starter just whirred over and over and over. I couldn't even do anything to stop it from attempting to start. It would ultimately give up. Roadside assistance sent a tow. The next day at the dealership it started, but it's still there for the long holiday weekend. Luckily I wasn't towing my travel trailer. I'm afraid to drive it as I've read of many instances similar to this recurring many times.

Grand Cherokee 6-cyl

  • 1,247 miles
Jeep was stopped at light and I stepped on accelerator after light changed. Engine revved up and car took off and picked up speed and I pressed on the brake, but the rpms wouldn't go down, even with the brake pressed and the car not moving the rpms were at almost 7000. The Jeep kept on wanting to go fast. I put it in neutral and it shifted hard into neutral. The electronic throttle control light came on and stayed red until I pulled over and shut the car off. It doesn't even have 1500 miles yet! this is the third time this has happened. I should have bought a Honda Pilot. I truly regret having bought this piece of S...! now I'm stuck with it for the next 5 years.
