Grand Cherokee

  • 11,351 miles


The contact owns a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 14V643000 (air bags, seat belts); however, the part to do the repair was unavailable. The contact was concerned that the air bag would deploy in his face. The vehicle burned oil continuously and there was blue fumes coming from the rear of the vehicle. In addition, the horn sounded and the hood latch failed. The dealer repaired the vehicle. The brake master cylinder protective plate was repaired under NHTSA campaign notification P67. The fuel door mechanism was fractured and the dealer repaired the vehicle. The dip stick was not replaced. A grinder was marked for a new factory dip stick. The contact also stated that the dealer placed too much oil in the vehicle. When the vehicle was new with less than 200 miles, the instrument cluster failed and the contact could not see how fast the vehicle was driving. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed a short circuit in the sun visor wiring. The vehicle was repaired. The contact also stated that the locks unlocked on their own. When the button was pushed on the key fob to open the rear tailgate, it would not respond. The manufacturer was not notified. The approximate failure mileage was 11,351.
