2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 022017

Grand Cherokee Trailhawk V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 460 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Bought a brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee with 36 miles on it. We get the miles up to 440 and the engine is already failing. I dropped it off at the dealer with 460 miles. They first told me it was the cams and lifters. Well the V6 engine doesn't have lifters. So then they said it was the tappets. The parts are apparently on backorder so now the vehicle I have had for 15 days is already in the shop for an estimated 10 days with people who don't know the difference between lifters and tappets. I'm hoping this doesn't cause any other problems to the engine seeing as how an important component has already failed causing who knows what other damage.
