When you hit a bump or even a rock on the highway or any road, something happens the front end it starts shaking like crazy its as if you had a blow out. Normally around 35 to 50 miles an hour. This is happening to many Jeep owners they call it the "Jeep death wobble." It is a very frightening situation. The steering wheel and the whole front end shakes back and forth. Slowing down does not correct the problem as some people have suggested you have to come to a complete stop. And then start driving again. This happened on a busy highway where there is not way of pulling over or on a road and it also happened on the city streets. This can cause a situation, there has been no recall on the issue but have heard many stories about this issue. It does not happen all the time, but when it does it is very frightening. This has happened several times but I have decided to make a complaint about it. I have not made video of it because you never know when it will happen, but have seen several on you-tube of vehicles with the same issue. I feel Chrysler Jeep should take full responsibility for it. Also the electric on the blinkers seem to be going out often also. Replacing a bulb does not work it is the whole socket or wiring system that needs to be replaced. I I research these issues many many Jeep owners complain about the same thing

I have 2013 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. I bought this in 2013 for my wife. The Jeep had about 11,000 miles on it when we bought. The death wobble started occurring about 6-month into ownership. I aligned, balanced and replaced two tires. Now, the death wobble is an everyday occurrence. At 55 miles per hour, the wobble occurs.

My Jeep has a problem with the front tire alignment. The right and left tire wear to fast atd the outer side causing possible problem during handling on wet roads. I have take the Jeep to a shop to be align, but the mechanic toll me that the problem with my Jeep is the camber position and these position is set by the factory. The factory desent want to make the replacement of the front differential and the related component. What I can do to resolve these issue?

I purchased the Jeep Wrangler new from david stanley Jeep, in midwest city Oklahoma. The vehicle had aftermarket wheels and tires on it before I purchased it. While taking the initial test drive I asked the salesman if the speedometer had been adjusted for the oversized tires. He assured me that it had because they would never sell anything that wasn't right. About a month after I purchased the vehicle I was pulled over for going 30 in a 25 zone. I had seen the police officer prior to being pulled over so I checked my speed and I knew I was going the correct speed. Since that time I make it a habit to drive by the mobile speed radars that are placed around town and every time my speedometer is 5mph off. This is at a low speed so it will only get worse at a higher speed. I brought this to the dealer attention and they refused to fix it. I then sent a complaint to Chrysler and they have refused to help as well.

I purchased a Wrangler Jeep sport in 2013 and have had two flats. It came with Wrangler Goodyear 255 75 17 in tires. The first flat I experienced was six months after I purchased the Jeep and it was the sidewall and could not be fixed. Now six months later another tire has went flat and it is also the sidewall. This Jeep has less than 28,000 miles on this tire and only 15,000 on the first tire. These tires cost $290 a piece, I mean really. Who can afford to continue purchasing tires at this cost every six months when the tire is rated at 50,000 miles. Now everyone I called say its not under warranty or no recall but something is wrong with these tires for the sidewalls to keep having flats. And if I'm not mistaken this is an off road vehicle isn't it, not that I've even taken it off road. If this is a problem with off road tires how about coming up with a better sidewall for Goodyear tires, just saying.
