2008 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #4

Jul 102015


  • 86,000 miles


July 10, 2015: Driving to work approximately 8:15 am cst. Car in front of me stopped suddenly and I felt the breaks were not slowing the vehicle down enough to avoid impact. With a vehicle on my right, my only option was to go left. I never saw the truck in the oncoming lane and hit head on. The airbag did not deploy on the driver's side. It did deploy on the passenger side, but no one else was in the vehicle with me. The upper body portion of the seat belt did not restrain me and I slammed face first into the steering wheel. I suffered a broken and dislocated wrist that required surgery, severe bruising of face, arms, chest, hips and legs. I feel this is a huge safety concern and should be rectified immediately.

Airbag light and chime activate when turning. Was diagnosed as faulty clock spring mechanism. Was told it was not under warranty and if not fixed airbags may not deploy.

Wrangler 6-cyl

The contact owns a 2008 Jeep Wrangler unlimited rubicon. The contact stated that the rear passenger seat belts were defective and would remain locked when secured. The front seat belts experienced the exact same failure two years prior. The dealer was aware of the issue and contacted the division manager on the contacts behalf. The contact was awaiting a response. The vehicle was not repaired. The current mileage was 47,075 and the failure mileage was approximately 15,000. The consumer stated the passenger seat belt would inadvertently lock for no reason and it would require the belt to be disconnected and completely returned to the retractor to release the lock. The ratchet had a mechanism defect. Updated evoq 03/03/11 updated 03/17/11
