2013 Jeep Patriot Owner Comments

Vehicle went in one week ago for noises coming from the rear of the vehicle. Suspension was replaced at 51000 highway miles. Three days later noises returned and vehicle was brought back in to be looked at again. Maintenance personnel stated a possible issue with the lower control arm. Part is currently on back order, waiting to have part reached. This is my second Jeep Patriot that I have owned (first was a 2008 Jeep Patriot) and both had their control arms go around 50,000 miles. Jeep needs to look into recalling these parts because it is apparent that they are not built from quality. This makes me concerned as to what other parts are breaking down at so little mileage.

I have had a terrible service experience. I had to wait over a month to get my 2013 Jeep in for warranty service. After another two week wait, I was told all was good and to pick up my vehicle. The maintenance department assured me that the vehicle was good to go repeatedly, even after I asked them multiple times because of prior bad service. The maintenance shop failed to reconnect my vehicles front right ball joint causing a catastrophic loss of control on the road after leaving the dealer. I skidded off the road, with one tire flopping around in the wheel well uncontrollably narrowly avoiding two other vehicles on my way off the road. Had this happed at a faster speed, there is a good chance the family and I could have been killed. This happened over two weeks ago and the dealership still has my vehicle. They have replaced some parts but have refused to replace damaged tires. One expects the highest of maintenance standards when taking a vehicle to a dealership, this dealership is failing horribly in maintenance standards and customer service.
