I bought this Jeep brand new off the showroom floor on December 15, 2015 and immediately had engine misfires driving home from the dealership. I took it in and they stated since the engine light is not on, there was nothing they could do. I drove it with no issues (besides the misfires) until June 2019 when I was driving on the highway and the lightening bolt and check engine came on, then it stalled. I spent $800 to get a new throttle put in.
I was hoping the misfires would be corrected, but it wasn't. They were actually worse, but I continued to drive it since there were no lights on my dash until this month, I was driving home from work and the RPM's dropped going 70mph and the traction light came on. I pulled over, turned it off then back on and was able to drive the rest of the way home. Drove it the following day, same thing, RPM's dropped while driving 70mph and the traction light came on and I had to pull over. It did it one more time, then I took it to the dealer.
$900 later, they replaced my Powertrain computer module. I got it back, the misfires were not occurring and I drove home with what I thought was a new car. It had good pick up, it shifted great, but when I left for work the next morning, same thing. The RPM's dropped, the traction light and check engine light came on. I tried turning it off and back on, but it only lasted about 5 seconds before the RPMs dropped again. I had it towed to the dealership.
They now believed it was my ABS module that needed fixed, but they covered the expense. Drove it home the following day, no issues. Drove it the for half the day running errands, no issues. A day later, I was driving to work, same issues. RPM's dropped, the traction light came on and the check engine. This time when the Jeep's RPM's dropped it totally stalled out on the highway going 70mph. I am now totally frustrated and had to have it towed again to the dealership. They were very kind and apologetic. They agreed to have another team and the higher ups look at it to figure out what was wrong. Now they replaced the crankshaft sensor and they kept it for 3 additional days driving it with no issues stalling, but the misfiring has increased.
Yesterday, I was told I needed all new spark plugs, which was another $100, but they covered the last two parts, so I was fine with it. I go today to pick it up for the third time in a week in a half. I hope it is fixed, if anyone could give me any other suggestions of what to replace next, that would be appreciated. Thanks for reading.
