I had a complete ball joint failure while driving on the highway. The failure resulted in my wheel separating from my car while driving in moderate traffic highway speeds (35 mph). Due to the failure and continued forward motion while driving, the entire front driver's side suspension had to be replaced.

My car has only 89,000 miles and the K frame under the engine is severly rusted and cracking that the car is dangerous to drive. It will cost me thousands of dollars to repair. This shouldn't be an issue.

Patriot 4WD 4-cyl

  • 74,000 miles
When I purchased the vehicle in 2012 I was assured that the pull and sound from the front end was just a needed alignment. 2 months later it was clunking and popping. After taking it to a mechanic, they stated that both lower control arms including ball joints, and the tie rod were terribly worn. The mechanic was not surprised because of the make and model of the Jeep Patriot. Said it is a well known issue for these to go out almost immediately after the warranty expires. This Jeep is supposed to be "trail rated" with the off road package, but I don't even feel safe driving it on city roads and haven't since I bought it. I have had to replace these part by part due to the fact of the high cost and that the value still holds up on Jeep so I make monthly finance payments on a vehicle that should have been recalled. This is outrageous that I am stuck with the 100% of these repair bills to fix what should not be a problem on a Jeep. I am extremely disappointed in Chrysler Jeep and will probably never purchase another one again. :(
