I was driving down the road and the horn started blowing and would not stop, the windshield wipers started wiping at high speed, windshield washer fluid was squirting out, and would not stop. I turned the vehicle off and issues kept happening. The gauges and speedometer stopped working at this time. Luckily I was pulling in my driveway.

Clockspring failure. Airbag light blinks and chimes in normal driving. Not offroad. Part is inferior and needs to be replaced several times over the life of the vehicle.

At any gas station (vehicle stationary) when filling up fuel tank, using the automatic shut-off on the pump, it will shut off, but always allows gas to overflow and spew a small amount of gas out the filler hole and down the side of the Jeep. Suspect some sort of filler neck or gas tank ventilation problem. This most recently happened today (1/11/16), but has happened every time I've filled the gas tank since I bought the vehicle used about 3 months ago.

Picked up approximately one half cord of wood using my utility trailer, over-drive disabled when pulling trailer. Backed trailer into yard to unload the already seasoned and split wood. Put Jeep into park, engaged the parking brake and left the Jeep to drop the trailer, heard a pop and flames began to shoot out from under the Jeep. I reached into the vehicle to turn off the engine and remove the key. I heard another pop and saw that flames were now shooting into the engine compartment. I ran into my house to get a fire extinguisher, came back out, opened the hood carefully and began to try and extinguish the flame. In order to fully put out the fire it took the fire extinguisher and multiple buckets of water. After the fire was fully extinguished I contacted my insurance carrier.

The airbag light is on and recently the horn stopped working also. I have found a recall, but when speaking with Chrysler about my available recalls, it is not listed. The NHTSA action number is PE11019 and my make and model is listed in the campaign. Was told to get the other recalls addressed and see if it would help with the problem.

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that while driving approximately 40 mph, another driver noticed that smoked was emitting from under the vehicle. The contact merged to the side of the road and exited the vehicle. Immediately after, the vehicle was engulfed in flames. The fire department extinguished the fire. The contact sustained second degree burns to the left leg which required medical attention. The vehicle was destroyed. The manufacturer was not notified. The VIN was unavailable. The approximate failure mileage was 150,000.

I was driving down a rugged dirt road very slowly and noticed smoke coming out of the ac vents. I stepped out of the Jeep and opened the hood and noticed flames. I immediately grabbed my valuables and ran away as the Jeep exploded into heavy fire. It burned completely.

I was driving approximately 55-60mph, there were some mild tar bumps in the road that I drove over and the car proceeded to the death wobble. It is exactly as everyone else has noted, the Jeep felt like all 4 wheels were coming off, the Jeep shook voilently, was extremely hard to handle. I slowed my speed and pulled off the road. The car felt like it was going to come apart. This is a known problem to Chrysler and to this organization, why won't you do something about it"???? with only 33K miles, I now have to get a new car because I am in fear of driving this one. If this had happened in the middle lane of an expressway....it could have been tragic and deadly....is that what you are waiting for" hope it isn't anyone you know when it does happen!

On a rocky road at rauch creek offroad park in tremont, pa. I was stopped waiting for my friend to give me directions. He noticed what he first thought was steam coming from under the hood. In fact it was smoke. Within one minute flames were coming from under the hood. Within two minutes the entire vehicle was engulfed. I injured myself in my haste to get out of the burning vehicle. The vehicle was a total loss. I have photo's and videos available of the incident.

This is a recurring problem that I face when I fill the vehicle up at any gas station. While filling the vehicle with gas, the auto stop clicks, and immediately the tank starts spilling gas. The gas spills out and runs down the side of the vehicle and onto the ground creating a puddle. This problem isn't attributable to trying to "top off" the tank because the by the first time the auto stop clicks, the vehicle is already pouring out gasoline. I have spoken to many other owners regarding this problem and they have said the same thing. I have investigated through NHTSA, and they have an ongoing investigation into this matter (action number : PE10032).
