The contact owns a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While the vehicle was parked, the radiator leaked a reddish color fluid onto the ground. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the radiator and hose ruptured. The radiator was replaced. In addition, the front driver and passenger side black wheel trim detached while the vehicle was being driven. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 5,000.

Our daughter bought a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee approximately six months ago. Her "dream car". two weeks ago, while driving home from los angeles, her rear tire blew out, causing her to spin out on the freeway, getting clipped by a big rig and tossed into the carpool lane, facing oncoming traffic. She was somehow able to get to the shoulder of the road without involving other vehicles. She was by only a miracle, mostly unharmed. This is a new car. The tires are Michelin. We are extremely unhappy with what happened, but obviously, extremely grateful she is alive!

My Jeep is rolling backwards when in park, wheels turned all the way to the right and emergency brake engaged. This has happened about 10 times since I purchased my Jeep in July 2015. On Jan 4th 2016 it rolled about 10 - 15 feet down a driveway and came to a rest in the gutter. It happened again on Jan 7, 2015. The Jeep was parked on a slight incline in driveways with about 1/4 inch on snow/slush. The tires are still locked in the right position both times when it came to a stop in the gutters. After the last incident I found a little driveway and parked on it. I again turned the tires all the way to the right and engaged the emergency brake and I sat and waited. 7 minutes later it started to slide down the driveway it sled about for about 5 - 8 feet before I applied the brake. This inclined driveways have been about 05 -10 feet inclines. I have had a 1996 and 2006 Jeep over the past 25 years and have never had a vehicle slide from a parked position or down a snow packed hill. I took it to the dealer and they told me to get new snow tires. This is very scary to me. If children are walking to school or joggers or a passing car someone could be seriously hurt or worse. This serious matter needs to be handled promptly.
