Engine stall while in motion on interstate highway entrance ramp. "service electronic brake system" malfunction message appeared. No prior indication of trouble. Taken to dealer for warranty repair. As of 9/26/16 still awaiting a power control module part (similar to, if not identical to, the tipm-7 part that has caused issues in the past) that is on national backorder, which is the 14th day out of service. In addition to control moducle, electrical relay to fuel pump and the fuel pump itself will require replacement.

The contact owns a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When the contact clicked the function button for the head lamps, the fuel lid opened without warning. The contact constantly had to check to ensure that the fuel cap door was closed due to the failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was not available....updated 09/15/16 updated 09/20/16

Minor leak in evaporative emission system. Dealer diagnosed as leaking fuel filler neck (cap less style) part ordered and has been on national back order with no release date since ordered. Dealer has upgraded order several time and each time part number is superseded but still no release date. Check engine light has been on 3-4 months now due to this. Expressed concern if anything else goes wrong will not be able to tell as check engine light is always on.

About 18 months ago the NHTSA had issued an advisory bulletin suggesting that automakers reduce or eliminate onboard info systems due to distracted drivers, in the meantime more complex systems have been installed by said and with the most recent hacking of the onboard ECM's as well as driving controls, I question will you possibly follow through with a mandate to cease these systems from being installed seeing that hackers through the bluetooth systems also onboard be eliminated to stop possible horrific accidents from happening. I understand that many are now issuing new software updates that are supposed to stop this from happening, however hackers have " backdoor methods " to still be able to access a cars system and with all the cyber crime taking place today, the elimination of these systems would be a sure fire way to stop it. A going back to a more simpler time when these issues didn't exist say pre 2003 standards. As a concerned consumer I am very worried that some very bad things are going to continue to happen and put my family ( as well as others ) at great risk. I would implore you to seriously consider stopping these systems from being installed in any newer cars that are planned for release, you timely decision would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your time

I purchase this vehicle 11/8/2014. Since then here is an ongoing, high pitched noise upon acceleration from zero to any cruising speed. I have taken it to 3 different Jeep dealers for this complaint and others. The service departments say it is due to the 9 speed automatic transmission. One dealer tried to blame it on my plastic sunglasses in the overhead storage compartment. One dealer reported to me that the same noise was heard on 2 brand new vehicles just delivered to them. I also have ongoing electrical issues - steering wheel controls reverse sides left to right, right to left for audio controls, the radio randomly starts switching channels, automatic high beam sensors turns on to enable mode, but in this mode the high beams do not dim. This function worked initially, then it didn't and one dealer said it lost it's program so they reset it. Another dealer said the sensor is not working. I will have it looked at again at my next service appointment. The phone call/phone call cancel buttons also reverse function. The fuel take door randomly pops open. This has happened while driving, while the car is parked at my work or home. I have had this repaired once. It still continues to happen. The Jeep will randomly lurch forward while stopped, brakes engaged and vehicle is running - at a stop light or stop sign.

The check engine light comes on when the fuel gauge drops below 3/4 full and then shuts off when the full gauge reads 1/4 full. The problem is that when the light comes on it disables the remote start function which is sorely missed in new england winters. This have happened at least 10 times this winter if not more and the dealer could not help.
