2004 Jeep Wrangler, 16,000 miles on it and the front end shakes violently when hitting a bump or even a small pothole in the road. I have read reports of this same issue happening over and over again with the dealers telling customers that it's "bad driving habits" causing the rotors to warp. Warped rotors can be felt in the brake pedal when appling the brakes, but there is no shaking happening while braking. Why don't manufacturers "do the right thing" and fix the problems. Seat belt retractors not retracting properly or even extending out when trying to fasten them is another problem that I encounter on a frequent basis.

I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler and there are several problems but the worst is that neither front belts will retract fast enough to prevent either door from slamming on the shoulder portion. I fear that after repeated door closing on the belts will weaken them to the point of breaking during an impact. The secondary problem is the front windshield is cracking in 2 places.

Failure of seat belt retractors. Seat belt catches on door latch causing damage to seat belt. Dealer replaced drivers side. Problem appeared again on both seats. Returned to dealer and was told they could not help. The web of the seat belts have holes in them from being pinched in door. When will they fail?

Seat belt failure due to retractor defect. The retractor does not return the belts which allows them to catch in the door latch and fray and rip. When submitted to damlier Chrysler the reply was that they did not have enough information to properly diagnose.
