Summary

This has happened on more than 1 occasion. Driving on the highway and I lose power, the Jeep slows way down, the accelerator pedal is dead, and the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) light comes on. It does the same thing driving in town. Sometimes you can turn the vehicle off, wait a couple minutes, start it back up and it will be ok for a little bit. Sometimes it won’t. I have replaced some parts, read forums, communicated with a dealer service department and it doesn’t sound like there is a “fix” for this. This is very dangerous and someone could get seriously injured or killed.

Summary

My Jeep just intermittently started the crank no start issue and gave code PO5013, incorrect immobilizer key. After extensive research I have found many Jeep owners to have this same problem and also found that Chrysler has confirmed it is a built in problem. After taking my Jeep to to dealer and having my keys checked along with the starter and ignition cylinder lock it is the (WCM) wireless control module that is the culprit of the crank but no start issue. This is an extremely unsafe problem due to my vehicle shutting down while driving on top of the other various problems the wcm has caused. Directions say to reset the WCM by pulling the IOD fuse for 30 seconds and then replacing however this method no longer works.

Summary

On 07/16/2021 at approximately 1600 hundred the smoke detectors in the house began alarming. I immediately noticed smoke coming from the garage. After getting my 6 year old son safely out of the house I immediately called 911. The fire department arrived and took care of the situation. The entire engine compartment was burnt. Before all of this we arrived at the house and parked in the garage. Only 5 minutes went by between parking the Jeep and calling 911. During operation of the vehicle that day there was no indication of any issues. The Fire Inspector preformed his investigation. As of now I have not received the incident report. Once I do I will supply it. I am waiting to hear from the insurance company regarding when an adjuster will view the Jeep. Thank you.

I WAS DRIVING DOWN A STATE HIGHWAY AT 40 MPH. WHEN MY HORN STARTED BLOWING, WINDSHIELD WIPER TURNED ON, LIGHTS FLASHING SO I HAD TO TURN ONTO A SIDE ROAD. MOTOR WAS STILL RUNNING SO I TURN IT OFF. THE ENGINE STOPPED BUT EVERYTHING ELSE REMAINED ON. HORN WAS STILL BLOWING, WIPERS ON...I DISCONNECTED THE HORN WIRES TO STOP THE HORN. I STARTED TO MOVE SOME WIRES THINKING THAT THERE MAY BE A SHORT SOMEWHERE. FINALLY EVERYTHING STOPPED BUT NOW MY CAR WOULDN'T START. I HAD TO GET IT TOWED. THROUGH SOME RESEARCH I FOUND IT TO BE THE TIPM ( TOTAL INTEGRATED POWER MODULE. IT HAS BEEN FINE SINCE I HAD IT REPLACED. FORTUNATELY THIS ALL TOOK PLACE DURING THE DAY IN GOOD WEATHER. HAD IT HAPPENED AT NIGHT OR IN THE WINTER SNOW OR IN SOME REMOTE AREA IT WOULD HAVE CAUSED A GREAT DEAL OF PAIN OR A DANGEROUS SITUATION. FROM WHAT I HAVE RESEARCHED MYSELF THIS IS NOT A ISOLATED INCIDENT. PLEASE REVIEW THIS INFORMATION. THANK YOU.

Summary

THE DEFROST ON A JEEP WRANGLER IS VERY INEFFECTIVE AND POORLY DESIGNED. THE ONLY BLOWER FOR THE DEFROST IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINDOW CAUSING THE SIDES OF THE FRONT WINDSHIELD TO SEVERELY FREEZE UP AND BECOME IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE OUT OF DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER SUCH AS FOG, SLEET OR SNOW. BASICALLY ANY TYPE OF PRECIPITATION DURING WEATHER THAT IS BELOW FREEZING WILL CAUSE THIS WHICH RESULTS IN A SEVERE INABILITY TO SEE OUT OF THE WINDSHIELD WHICH IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE WHEN DRIVING IN INCLEMENT WEATHER. THIS HAPPENS WHEN DRIVING AT ANY SPEED ON ANY ROAD AS LONG AS THERE IS PRECIPITATION AND TEMPS ARE BELOW FREEZING.

Summary

2008 JEEP WRANGLER HAS HAD SEVERAL ISSUES WITH TIPM. WIPERS WILL COME ON, HORN WILL SOUND, WASHER FLUID SPRAYS, AND TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT (WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION AND THIS HAPPENS) INTERMITTENTLY AND WILL SOMETIMES CREATE A NO CRANK/NO START CONDITION AFTER THE MALFUNCTION HAPPENS WHILE THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION AND HAS BEEN SHUT OFF. DEFECT HAS BEEN TRACED BACK TO TIPM AND TIPM WAS REPLACED WITH AN AFTERMARKET REMANUFACTURED TIPM. PROBLEM RESOLVED AND NOW HAS REAPPEARED WITH ADDITIONAL SYMPTOMS, SUCH AS WHEN VEHICLE IS PUT IN REVERSE WIPERS WILL GO OFF AND ENGINE WILL REV TO HIGHER RPMS THAN NECESSARY TO ALLOW FOR ACCELERATION. THE TIPM DEFECT CREATES A SIGNIFICANT SAFETY HAZARD WHEN IT INTERFERES WITH THE SHIFTING, ACCELERATION OF VEHICLE. MOST RECENT ISSUE WAS 11/09/2020; ISSUE HAS BEEN ONGOING SINCE 06/2019.

ALRIGHT I HAVE A 2008 JEEP WRANGLER SAHARA JK. AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION 2DOOR SOFT TOP. AND I HAVE NOTICED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHEN THERE IS WET CONDITIONS ON ANY CURVY ROAD THAT WHEN SLOWING DOWN TO TAKE A CURVE TO THE RIGHT WITH THE TRACTION CONTROL ON THE TRANSMISSION WILL DOWN SHIFT AND CAUSE THE BACK TIRES TO SPIN AND LOSE TRACTION WHICH INTURN SENDS THE [XXX] END SIDEWAYS. AND IT DOES IT BOTH UP AND DOWN HILL AND PRETTY MUCH ONLY ON RIGHT TURNS THE PASSENGER SIDE WHICH PUTS THE DRIVER SIDE REAR END INTO THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC LANE A LITTLE. AND I TRULY BELIEVE IF IT WAS A YOUNG DRIVER OR ANYONE THAT HASN'T DROVE ANYTHING WILDLY BEFORE IN THERE LIFE IT COULD CAUSE A BAD ACCIDENT. BUT IF YOU TURN THE TRACTION CONTROL OFF IT DON'T DO IT IS BAD IF AT ALL. WHICH MAKES ME THINK IT'S WIRING OR THE COMPUTER AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM. I'VE HAD IT HAPPEN ON BACK ROADS AND MT ROADS EVEN TURN ON THE INTERSTATE RAMP. ANY ROAD WHERE YOU REMAIN IN MOTION WITH A DECENT CURVE TO THE RIGHT. ALOT ON THIS WINDING MT ROAD OVER THE RIDGE TO THE NEXT TOWN. IT'S CALLED JOPPA MOUNTAIN. AND IT SIDESTEPS WITH YOU THERE LIKE IT HAS ME QUITE A FEW TIMES, AND YOU ARE NOT ON YOUR GAME IT COULD GET REAL BAD REAL FAST BECAUSE THAT ROAD WINDS BACK AND FORTH ALL THE WAY UP AND BACK DOWN WITH STRAP DROP OFFS THAT YOU WOULD BE PRAYING FOR A TREE TO STOP YOU. ALWAYS WHEN TURNING RIGHT AND SLOWING DOWN WITH THE TRACTION CONTROL ON.

I'VE EXPERIENCED THE 'DEATH WOBBLE' AROUND SEVEN TIMES SINCE PURCHASING THE VEHICLE IN FEBRUARY OF LAST YEAR, MAINLY ON SECONDARY ROADS. I TOOK IT TO TWO LOCAL MECHANICS WHO FOUND NO ISSUES. IT HAD YET TO HAVE HAPPENED AT HIGH SPEEDS UNTIL YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS ON INTERSTATE 81 (WHICH I DRIVE DAILY-SPEED LIMIT 70) AND HIT THE BEGINNING OF A BRIDGE AND THE JEEP SHOOK SO VIOLENTLY THAT I HAD TO PULL INTO THE EMERGENCY LANE, BRING THE VEHICLE TO A COMPLETE STOP, AND TURN MY HAZARD LIGHTS ON. I AM AFRAID TO DRIVE IT AT THIS POINT. I FEAR NOT ONLY MY SAFETY, BUT THE SAFETY OF OTHER DRIVERS ON THE ROAD AROUND ME. I HAVE READ ONLINE THAT THIS IS COMMON AND WAS CONSIDERED TO BE A MANUFACTURING FAULT AND THAT RECALLS WERE BEING ISSUED, BUT WHEN I SEARCHED MY VIN NUMBER, NO RECALLS WERE FOUND.

SINCE 2017, EVERY TIME I PUMP FUEL INTO THE CAR AT GAS STATION, THE PUMP OVERFLOWS AND SPILLS ALL OVER THE SIDE OF THE CAR, THE GROUND AND THEN MY FEET AND HANDS BECAUSE I HAVE TO STEP IN THE PUDDLE AND PUT THE GAS CAP ON. I MOVED TO TN FROM CA IN 2016 AND I HAVE BEEN THINKING THAT IT THE SHELL GAS PUMPS HERE IN TN THAT WERE CAUSING IT...AS IF THEY WERE OLD OR NOT UP TO SOME SORT OF "CA STANDARD" OR SOMETHING. HOWEVER, AFTER THIS PROBLEM JUST HAPPENED TO MY PREGNANT WIFE WITH OUR 2 YEAR OLD IN THE CAR, I DECIDED TO CHECK A JEEP FORUM AND SEE IF ANYONE ELSE IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM. LO AND BEHOLD, THIS APPEARS TO BE A SERIOUS ISSUE DATING BACK 10 YEARS TO A 2010 FORUM I FOUND. URL: HTTPS://WWW.JEEPFORUM.COM/FORUM/F176/HAVE-FUEL-SPILL-PROBLEMS-LIKE-MANY-US-SUBMIT-COMPLAINT-FORCE-RECALL-974337/ THIS VIDEO SHOWS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS: HTTPS://WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/WATCH?TIME_CONTINUE=7&V=HAE5HT-_Y48&FEATURE=EMB_LOGO THIS IS A SERIOUS RISK OF FIRE AND SAFETY...FOR NOT JUST ME, BUT ANY PATRON AT A GAS STATION WHO IS EITHER THERE WITH ME OR DRIVES UP TO MY PUMP AFTER ME. THE FUMES ARE NOW ON OUR FEET AND THEN IN THE CAR...THEN WE GO HOME OR WHERE AND SPREAD THAT GASOLINE FUMES AROUND EVERYWHERE WE GO. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND I'M VERY CONCERNED WHY THERE IS NO RECALL ON THIS GIVEN THE EASE TO DIAGNOSE THIS PROBLEM WITH ONE SIMPLE GOOGLE SEARCH. I'M VERY CONCERNED...

WHILE TURNING RIGHT FROM A STOP SIGN ON TO A MAJOR HIGHWAY WITH 55 MILE AN HOUR SPEED LIMIT I BEGAN TO MERGE INTO TRAFFIC WHEN SUDDENLY THE TRANSMISSION JUMPED OUT OF FIRST GEAR CAUSING A LOUD BANGING AND SHIFTIER VIOLENTLY JUMPING BACKWARDS OUT OF MY HAND AND CAUSING MY JEEP TO STOP ACCELERATING ONLY A FEW FEET FROM THE STOP SIGN AND INTO TRAFFIC. I WAS ABLE TO QUICKLY GET THE TRANSMISSION BACK INTO FIRST GEAR AND MERGE WITHOUT INCIDENT. THIS PROBLEM WAS INTERMITTENT FOR ALMOST 6 MONTHS AND NEVER COULD I GET IT TO HAPPEN WHEN I BROUGHT IT IN TO GET SERVICED FOR THIS PROBLEM. THE MORE I DROVE THE JEEP THE MORE OFTEN THE PROBLEM WOULD OCCUR, UNTIL DECEMBER OF 2018 WHEN IT WOULD JUMP OUT OF GEAR ALMOST EVERY TIME I STARTED FROM A DEAD STOP. IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO DRIVE ANYWHERE WITHOUT BEING NERVOUS THAT THE NEXT TIME I TRIED TO START FROM A DEAD STOP I WOULD EITHER BE BROADSIDED OR REAR ENDED BECAUSE OF THE SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER. I UNDERSTAND THAT JEEP HAS ISSUED A TECHNICAL BULLETIN FOR THIS PROBLEM BUT I HAVE WAITED FOR PARTS SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS REPAIR FOR SEVERAL WEEKS AND POSSIBLY WILL BE IN IN ABOUT 10 MORE DAYS ACCORDING TO THE SERVICE ADVISOR. I HAVE OWNED SEVERAL MANUAL TRANSMISSION VEHICLES ALL OF THEM FOR OVER 200,000 MILES EACH HAVE NEVER HAD PROBLEMS WITH INTERNAL GEARS AND SYNCHRONIZERS. THE JEEP HAS BEEN SERVICED AND IS WELL TAKEN CARE OF NOT USED FOR TOWING OR ANY OTHER HEAVY LOADING. I DON'T BELIEVE I HAVE DONE ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY TO CAUSE THIS PROBLEM, I DO BELIEVE THAT JEEP HAS A PROBLEM WITH THIS TRANSMISSION AND IS NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY TO REPAIR THEM.

THERE IS A USED CAR DEALERSHIP IN PHOENIX ARIZONA CALLED PRIME AUTO, PHONE 602-737-3275. I AM WORKING WITH THE ARIZONA ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE AND HAVE (WITHIN JUST A FEW DAYS) COLLECTED STORIES FROM 3 OTHER INDIVIDUALS WITH SIMILAR ISSUES, BEING SOLD A USED CAR THAT WAS UNSAFE ON THE ROADWAYS - MY SITUATION WAS A DEATH WOBBLE IN A JEEP WRANGLER, BLINKERS MALFUNCTIONING, WIPER BLADES NOT WORKING PROPERLY - TWO OF THOSE ARE A LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DEALERSHIP (SELLER) TO ENSURE IN WORKING CONDITION AND THEY FAILED. THEY ALSO ATTEMPTED TO FRAUDULENTLY REPRESENT MY CARS TRADE IN VALUE BY SHOWING ME A KBB.COM PRICE THAT IS ONLY FOR CARS TRADED IN REQUIRING REPAIRS, I TRADED IN A NEAR NEW JEEP. IF THE AG'S OFFICE DOES NOT ACT ON THIS CLAIM I WOULD HOPE THAT YOUR OFFICE WOULD, OR AT LEAST WORK TOGETHER IN BRINGING CHARGES TO STOP PRIME AUTO FROM SELLING CARS UNTIL A FULL INVESTIGATION IS COMPLETE AND ALL PREVIOUS CUSTOMERS CONTACTED AND MADE AVAILABLE THEIR LEGAL REMEDIES FOR THE DEALERSHIPS ACTIONS IN SELLING UNSAFE VEHICLES THAT COULD POTENTIALLY HARM MULTIPLE, VICTIMS, NOT JUST THE BUYER.

Summary

FRONT AXLE (DIFFERENTIAL) OIL SEALS ARE LEAKING LUBE OIL QUICKLY. THERE ARE LEAK REPORTED ISSUES WITH THESE DANA 30; DANA 35; AND MY OWN RUBICON'S DANA 44 AXLE. THE AXLE SEALS ARE LEAKING LUBE OIL FROM THE AXLE ENDS. AGAIN, THIS IS HAPPENING TO MY '08 JEEP WRANGLER RUBICON AND ALSO TO MANY OTHER JEEP WRANGLER MODELS FROM 07-17 YEARS AS WELL AS REPORTED AND CONFIRMED BY OTHER OWNERS OF JEEP JK AND JKU MODELS 2017, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 09, 08, 07 MODELS. THERE SHOULD BE A GOVERMENT RECALL SINCE MANY OF THESE JEEPS ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME AXLE LEAK ISSUES AS REPORTED. UNFORTUNATEDLY, FCA DOES NOT COVER THIS SIMPLE POWER TRAIN FIX SINCE MY VEHICLE IT'S OUT OF WARRANTY.

I BELIEVE THESE MALFUNCTIONS COULD PUT ME IN DANGER. FOR EXAMPLE, IF I CAN'T DEFROST THE WINDSHIELD THERE IS A VISABILITY PROBLEM. ALSO, ASSUMING IT IS THE TIPM THERE ARE MANY OTHER THINGS THAT WILL EVENTUALLY HAPPEN.

THE HORN WAS HONKING, WASHER FLUID SPRAYING, BLINKERS FLASHING AND DOOR LOCKS LOCKING AND UNLOCKING RAPIDLY. I WAS UNABLE TO EXETER THE VEHICLE WITH THE KEY FOB AND HAD TO USE THE KEY TO UNLOCK THE DOOR. THEN AFTER STARTING THE VEHICLE THE ABOVE ISSUES CONTINUED. I CYCLED THE KEY WITH NO SUCCESS. AFTER I OPPENED THE HOOD THE ABOVE MENTIONS ISSUES STOPPED TEMPORARILY FOR APPROXIMATELY 20 SECONDS THEN STARTED AGAIN. I TAPPED THE TIPM AND ALL OF THE ABOVE ISSUES STOPPED. I KNOW THAT JEEP HAS HAD ISSUES WITH TIPM BUT A RECALL WAS NEVER ISSUED TO CORRECT THE DEFECTIVE PART. I FEEL THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT SAFTETY HAZARD AS I WAS UNABLE TO STOP THE COMPONENTS OF THE VEHICLE FOR MALFUNCTIONING. I'M EXTREMELY CONCERNED FOR MY SAFETY AS IF THIS HAPPENED WHILE DRIVING I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SEE DUE TO THE ERRATIC NATURE OF THE WASHER FLUID SPRAY AND WINDSHIELD WIPERS NOT FUNCTIONING.

WHILE DRIVING, THE HORN, LIGHTS AND WIPERS RANDOMLY GO OFF AND SPRAY FLUID EVERYWHERE. NOTHING CAN BE DONE TO STOP IT AND EVEN TURNING THE CAR OFF DOESN'T.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLERS ARE HAVING SO MANY TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS, AND JEEP AND CHRYSLER IS SITTING ON THE THEIR BACKSIDES BLAMING THE DRIVERS? IF MULTIPLE PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME TYPE OF PROBLEM, YOU WOULD THINK SOMEONE WOULD LOOK INTO THE PROBLEM, BUT NO THEY DEALERS AND THE COMPANY CONTINUE TO DISREGARD IT FORCING OWNERS TO SPEND MORE AND MORE MONEY. I REFUSE TO SPEND MONEY TO BAND-AID THE ISSUES. THIS SHOULD BE A SAFETY RECALL DUE TO THE FACT THAT WHEN IT HAPPENS IT LEAVES THE DRIVER SITTING STILL IN TRAFFIC. I AM AFRAID TO PUT MY FAMILY IN THE VEHICLE FOR THAT SAME REASON. I WOULD LIKE TO NOTE THAT THIS PROBLEM HAS HAPPENED AT LEAST ONCE A DAY IN THE LAST YEAR I HAVE HAD IT, THE DATE OF WHEN IT HAPPENED WAS JUST THE LAST TIME . IF ANYONE IS EVEN LISTENING TO THE OWNERS OR TRYING TO HELP PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

MY SON WAS WITH ME AND SAID THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED TO HIM WHEN YOU HIT A BUMP AT SPEEDS BETWEEN 50-70MPH. THE STEERING VIOLENTLY SHAKES FROM SIDE TO SIDE. IT WILL ONLY STOP IF I SLOW DOWN TO SPEEDS BELOW 20 MPH. I KNOW LONGER ALLOW MY SON TO DRIVE THE JEEP WRANGLER ON THE HIGHWAY AND WILL NOT LET HIM TAKE IT TO COLLEGE WHEN HE STARTS BACK IN THE FALL. I DO NOT WANT TO PUT HIM IN A DANGEROUS SITUATION ON THE HIGHWAY. THE JEEP IS STOCK; NO LIFTS, AFTERMARKET WHEELS, ETC.

AIR BAG LIGHT KEEPS CHIMING ON AND OFF WHILE DRIVING! BROUGHT IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAY THE AIRBAG IS NOT MAKING CONNECTION DUE TO A FAULTY CLOCK SPRING! CHRYSLER ALREADY HAD A RECALL FOR THIS PROBLEM FOR "CERTAIN MODEL YEARS" OF COURSE 2008 WASN'T COVERED! THEY NEED TO RECALL THIS AND FIX IT CONSIDERING IT'S BEEN A PROBABLY RIGHT OUT OF THE FACTORY! I HAD TO PAY OUT OF POCKET TO FIX THIS SAFETY ISSUE! THIS IS RIDICULOUS CHRYSLER! THE PEOPLE SUPPORT YOU NOW IT'S TIME TO SUPPORT US BACK!

I TOOK IT TO JEEP BECAUSE THE SEAT BELT LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. THEY TOLD ME IT WAS THE CLOCK SPRING AND THEY WANTED $1000 FOR IT TO BE FIXED. NO I FIND OUT ITS HAPPENING TO ALL JEEPS. THEY STILL WON'T GO GOOD FOR IT. IT HAS HAPPENED TO OTHER YEAR JEEPS BY STILL NO RECALL. IT'S A DEFECT AND I WOULD LIKE IT TO BE FIXED. I HAVE NEVER RECEIVED ANY RECALL INFO ON MY JEEP.

Summary

JEEP DEATH WOBBLE - NOTED ON MANY JEEP FORUMS, WRANGLERS ARE NOTORIOUS FOR THIS. DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY AT APPROX. 70 MPH, ACCELERATING SWIFTLY WHEN ENTERING A FREEWAY ON-RAMP, ON SURFACE STREETS WITH POTHOLES AND/OR BUMPY RIDE - THE VEHICLE BEGINS TO SHAKE VIGOROUSLY AND LOUDLY. THE STEERING WHEEL SHAKES AND AS WELL AS THE WHOLE FRONT DASH - LITERALLY FEELS LIKE YOUR VEHICLE WILL BREAK IN HALF. THE ONLY WAY TO STABILIZE IS TO BRING SPEED DOWN TO 20-30 MPH. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS, ESPECIALLY ON THE FREEWAY. I HAD TO DRIVE WITH MY HAZARDS ON AT 30 MPH ON THE FREEWAY IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE.

Summary

THE MANUAL TRANSMISSION/STICK SHIFT CONSTANTLY VIOLENTLY POPS OUT OF 1ST AND 3RD GEAR INTO NEUTRAL WHILE ACCELERATING CAUSING A SUDDEN, UNEXPECTED LOSS OF POWER AND CONTROL OVER THE VEHICLE. THE DRIVER MUST COME TO A COMPLETE STOP IN TRAFFIC OR HAVE THE VEHICLE CONTINUE TO ROLL FORWARD (OR BACKWARD IF ON AN UPSLOPE) WHILE TRYING TO RE-ENGAGE THE TRANSMISSION. UNLESS AND UNTIL THE DRIVER IS ABLE TO RE-ENGAGE THE TRANSMISSION, THERE IS NO ACTIVE CONTROL OVER THE FORWARD MOVEMENT OF THE VEHICLE TO MAINTAIN VEHICLE SPEED OR AVOID A POTENTIAL COLLISION. THIS CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS DAMAGE AND/OR INJURY TO THE VEHICLE, DRIVER, DRIVERS OF OTHER VEHICLES AND PEDESTRIANS. THIS HAS BEEN A CONTINUING PROBLEM SINCE THE VEHICLE WAS NEW. MANUFACTURE ISSUED A TSB (#21-001-10 REV. A) REGARDING THIS ISSUE CAUSED BY BAD A SYNCHRONIZER ASSEMBLY. DEALER REFUSED TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS UNDER WARRANTY B/C IT HAPPENED LESS FREQUENTLY THEN AND DEALER COULDN'T INDEPENDENTLY DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM. NOW THAT IT HAPPENS CONSTANTLY THE DEALER REFUSES TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM B/C THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY. THIS IS A KNOWN DANGEROUS DEFECT BUT THE DEALER/MANUFACTURER REFUSES TO CORRECT IT.

HAD TAKEN IT BACK TWICE IN 10 DAYS AND ON THE 13TH DAY AND AFTER ONLY 500 MILES IT DECIDES TO SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST! THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE WITH THESE VEHICLES AND SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE! IF IT HAD HAPPENED IN THE GARAGE OR WORSE JUST 10 MINUTES EARLIER WHILE FILLING UP THE GAS TANK WHAT WOULD THE OUTCOME HAVE BEEN?

WHILE DRIVING MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER THE CLOCKSRPING MALFUNCTIONED AND BROKE WHILE GOING AROUND A TURN ON MY NEIGHBORHOOD STREET. MY AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON AND A SMALL RIBBON CAME OUT OF THE STEERING COLUMN. THIS ALSO DISABLED MY HORN. WHEN I TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC HE ASKED ABOUT A RECALL ON THIS PART BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A COMMON ISSUE. I LOOKED AND SAW THAT THERE IN FACT WAS A RECALL ON THE RIGHT HANDED VEHICLES FOR 2008 BUT NOT LEFT HANDED DRIVE VEHICLES AS WELL AS 2007 JEEPS HAD THE RECALL. I AM HOPEFUL THAT THIS CAN ALSO BE RECALLED IN 2008 LEFT HAND DRIVE VEHICLES AS IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT SHOULD GO BAD UNLESS YOUR VEHICLE IS LEFT IN THE RAIN DUST OR DIRTY ENVIRONMENTS, WHICH IS NOT HOW MY JEEP IS EVER STORED. I AM HAPPY THAT I WAS ON A NEIGHBORHOOD STREET WHEN THIS HAPPENED AND THAT THE AIR BAG DID NOT DEPLOY!

I'VE CALLED DEALERSHIPS, THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX IT. IT SOUNDS LIKE A WASTE OF MONEY FOR ME TO EVEN ATTEMPT TO FIX IT. WHY HAS THE JEEP WRANGLER NOT BEEN RECALLED FOR THIS REASON?

THIS IS PROBABLY BECAUSE THE AIRBAG WILL NOT WORK AND IS A SAFETY HAZARD. 2007 JEEPS HAVE A RECALL FOR THIS AND IT IS A FAULTY COIL SPRING IN THE STEERING WHEEL. LOOKING ON ANY FORUM SITE OR EVEN THIS ONE AND YOU WILL SEE MULTIPLE COMPLAINTS OF THE SAME ISSUE. JEEP TOLD ME THAT I WOULD NEED TO PAY OUT OF POCKET TO GET THIS FIXED UNTIL A RECALL IS ISSUED. CONSIDERING MY JEEP AND MANY OTHERS ARE HAVING THIS OCCUR WELL BEFORE 100K MILES THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH THE PART THAT THEY ARE PUTTING INTO THE CARS.

Summary

IN 2009 MY TIPM FAILED AND I EXPERIENCED THE 'POSSESSED JEEP' CONDITION WHERE EVERYTHING TURNED ON (LIGHTS, TURN SIGNALS, HORN, RADIO BLASTING WITH NO DISPLAY). I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY REPLACED FREE OF CHARGE (UNDER 5 YEAR WARRANTY). IN 2012 MY REAR BRAKE CALIPERS SEIZED ON BOTH THE PASSENGER AND DRIVER SIDE, THEY WERE GLOWING CHERRY-RED AFTER A 1 HOUR COMMUTE INTO WORK, PERFECT TO START A FIRE IF I HAD PULLED INTO A GAS STATION WITH SOME GAS SPILLED ON THE GROUND OR SOMETHING. I GOT AFTER-MARKET CALIPERS BECAUSE THE GUY AT AUTO ZONE SAID THAT HE HAD SEVERAL CUSTOMERS WITH THE SAME ISSUE THAT REPLACED IT WITH FACTORY CALIPERS AND THEY FAILED WITHIN 40000 MILES, THEY WENT WITH AFTER-MARKET CALIPERS AND NEVER HAD A PROBLEM, I HAVE NOT HAD A PROBLEM SINCE MYSELF. WELL NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN MY HORN, FRONT PASSENGER PARKING LAMP/TURN SIGNAL STOPPED WORKING. THERE ARE NO BLOWN FUSES OR UNHOOKED WIRES, EVERYTHING IS STOCK (I BOUGHT THE VEHICLE BRAND NEW). AT THIS SAME TIME, MY PASSENGER SEAT KEEPS COMING UNLATCHED AND FLYING FORWARD AND BACK (AS IF SOMEONE WERE TRYING TO ENTER THE BACK SEAT). I CAN PUSH THE SEAT BACK INTO POSITION, BUT IT WILL FLY FORWARD ALL BY ITSELF AT RANDOM. THIS STARTED IMMEDIATELY WITH THE HORN AND PASSENGER PARKING LAMP ISSUE. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND PRESENTS A CHOKING HAZARD, ESPECIALLY IF SOMEONE IS SITTING IN THE SEAT WITH THE SEAT BELT FASTENED. SINCE THE HORN HAS STOPPED WORKING, I AM CONCERNED THAT MY AIR-BAG MAY NOT DEPLOY (CLOCK-SPRING ISSUE) OR IF IT IS THAT TIPM AGAIN. I DON'T THINK I SHOULD NEED TO PAY FOR YET ANOTHER TIPM THIS SHOULD BE COVERED FOR THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE SINCE IT IS A SAFETY HAZARD.

I STEPPED ON THE BREAK AND PULLED OVER ON THE SHOULDER AND STOPPED. THEN I DROVE AGAIN AND THE JEEP WAS JUST FINE. AFTER RESEARCHING ON THE PROBLEM, FROM THEN ON, I TRIED TO AVOID POTHOLES OR ROUGH ROADS AND SLOW DOWN MY SPEED TO 40 MPH ON A FREEWAY TO AVOID THE SO CALLED "DEATH WOBBLE" UNTIL I HAD MONEY TO HAVE THE CAR FIXED.

Summary

CAR PARKED AND STATIONARY AT HOME. OPENED THE REAR DOOR (WITH KEYS IN HAND, NOT IN IGNITION) AND THE FRONT WINDSHIELD WIPERS STARTED GOING AND THE RUNNING LIGHTS CAME ON. AFTER 1-2 MINUTES THE HORN STARTED BLOWING AND THE HEATER BLOWER MOTOR CAME ON. PUTTING THE KEY IN IGNITION OR NOT MADE NO DIFFERENCE. PULLED THE POSITIVE TERMINAL OFF OF THE BATTERY AND EVERYTHING STOPPED. RECONNECTED THE POSITIVE TERMINAL AND NOTHING UNUSUAL HAPPENED. TRIED STARTING THE CAR TO TEST AND THE KEY ACTIVATED THE DASH BUT WOULD NOT START THE ENGINE BUT NORMAL DASH LIGHTS CAME ON. WHILE TRYING DIFFERENT THINGS (SHIFT TO NEUTRAL, PARK, ON, OFF, ETC) THE WIPERS (FRONT AND REAR), BLOWER, RUNNING LIGHTS AND HORN ALL CAME BACK ON AND THE ENGINE STARTED WITHOUT TURNING THE KEY FROM RUN TO START. WIPERS AND BLOWER SPEED CHANGED WITHOUT TOUCHING ANY CONTROLS. BLOWER SPEED COULD BE CHANGED THROUGH SWITCH, BUT WHEN BLOWER SWITCH TURNED TO OFF, BLOWER WENT TO HIGH SPEED. PULLED POSITIVE TERMINAL AND NEGATIVE TERMINALS FROM BATTERY WITH NO CHANGE ' EVERYTHING STILL RUNNING. HAD TO PULL WIRES OFF THE ALTERNATOR TO STOP EVERYTHING. THE HEATER BLOWER HAD STOPPED ON THIS VEHICLE A YEAR OR SO AGO AND AFTER TESTING AND REPLACING ALL BLOWER PARTS WITH NEW PARTS IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE TIPM WAS AT FAULT. TIPM HAS NOT YET BEEN REPLACED (BUT WILL BE). IF THIS HAD HAPPENED WHILE THE VEHICLE HAD BEEN IN MOTION, IT WOULD HAVE (AT THE VERY LEAST) PANICKED THE DRIVER. I AM GOING TO RECONNECT THE BATTERY AND ATTEMPT TO VIDEO THE RESULTS.

MY AIRBAG LIGHT IS CONSTANTLY ON AND MY CRUISE CONTROL NO LONGER WORKS. I AM A LHD 2008 WRANGLER AND AS I HAVE SEEN ACROSS THE INTERNET THIS IS A HUGE PROBLEM. WHY IS THERE NO RECALL ON THE LHD 2008 WRANGLERS WHEN THERE IS FOR THE RHD AND 2007 LHD WRANGLERS. THE SAME CLOCK SPRINGS ARE USED IN ALL THESE VEHICLES AND THEY ARE FAULTY ACROSS THE BOARD. THIS NEEDS TO BE A RECALL AS MY AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY IF I GET INTO AN ACCIDENT. CHRYSLER IS RESPONSIBLE AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS ISSUE IN MY MODEL YR AND LHD. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF I AM SITTING, DRIVE OR WHATEVER THE AIRBAG LIGHT IS ALWAYS ON AS SOON AS I START THE ENGINE AND MY CRUISE CONTROL DOES NOT WORK.

Summary

I OWN A 2008 JEEP WRANGLER THAT HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING THE 'DEATH WOBBLE' MORE FREQUENTLY. THE CAUSE FOR CONCERN FIRST HAPPENED (2) YEARS AGO AFTER HITTING A POTHOLE ON THE HIGHWAY. I TOOK IT IN FOR INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE. THE MECHANIC TOLD ME IT WAS A LOOSE STEERING STABILIZER BAR. ABOUT A YEAR OR SO AFTER THE REPAIR, MY WRANGLER HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING THE 'DEATH WOBBLE' MORE FREQUENTLY. IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN WHEN I'M DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE AND HIT SOME SIGNIFICANT BUMP OR POTHOLE. I HAVE TO SLOW DOWN TO ROUGHLY 40 MPH FOR THE VIOLENT SHAKING TO STOP. THEN, I CAN ACCELERATE BACK TO NORMAL SPEED. IT CAN BE REAL DANGEROUS WHEN OTHER PEOPLE ARE CLOSE BEHIND ME AND I'M FORCED TO APPLY THE BRAKES TO DROP MY SPEED BY ROUGHLY 30 MPH. I DON'T HAVE THE MONEY TO KEEP TAKING THE WRANGLER IN FOR MORE REPAIRS, ESPECIALLY ONE THAT SEEMS TO HAPPEN PERIODICALLY. THOUGHTS?

IT HAS ONLY HAPPENED ONCE SO FAR, BUT IT WAS VERY SCARY. THE FRONT WHEELS BEGAN AN UNCONTROLLABLE WOBBLE. I WAS GOING 55-60 MPH AND HAD TO WRESTLE THE CAR OFF THE HIGHWAY AS IT WAS FIGHTING TO STAY ON ROAD. IT FELT LIKE THE FRONT WHEELS WERE FALLING OFF. THE CAR BEHIND ME ALMOST HIT ME. IT WAS FINE ONCE I STOPPED THE CAR AND HASN'T HAPPENED IN 2 WEEKS. UPON CHECKING THE INTERNET, THERE ARE A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE WITH THE SAME THING HAPPENING TO THEM. THEY EVEN HAVE A NAME FOR IT, IT'S CALLED "THE JEEP DEATH WOBBLE" AND IT'S COMMON IN JEEPS WRANGLERS OF ALL AGES. AND MOST PEOPLE HAVE IT HAPPEN TO THEM SEVERAL TIMES. LOOK IT UP. I TALKED TO DEALERS AND CHRYSLER CORPORATE AND THEY ALL SAID "WE HAVE HEARD SOME STORIES, BUT DON'T HAVE A REAL FIX FOR IT.". THEY SAID IT COULD BE CAUSED BY "ADDING LIFTERS TO YOUR CAR", WHICH IS A JOKE, BECAUSE EVERYONE THAT WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE JEEP DEATH WOBBLE HAVE STOCK JEEPS AND ARE NOT TAKING THEM OFF-ROAD. IT'S AN ISSUE JEEP IS IGNORING UNTIL THERE IS A DEATH, WHICH IS BOUND TO HAPPEN SOON.

WHILE DRIVING AND WHEN SPEED REACHED 55 -60 MPH, THE STEERING HAD A SMALL SHAKING TO IT. AS TIME AND MORE MILES WENT BY, IT TURNED INTO UNCONTROLLABLE STEERING. I HAD TO LET OFF THE ACCELERATOR AND COAST TO A SLOWER SPEED. EVENTUALLY I COULD NOT DRIVE THE JEEP UNTIL I CHANGED THE TORSION BAR, TIE ROD ENDS AND STEERING STABILIZER, (TWICE, THE LAST TIME WITH A HEAVY DUTY ONE) AND THEN WHAT FIXED IT WAS THE STEERING GEAR BOX. BUT ONCE I CHANGED IT, THE WOBBLE OR UNCONTROLLABLE SHAKING STOPPED SO I GOT A FRONT END ALIGNMENT AND HAD TO CHANGE ALL FOUR BALL JOINTS DUE TO THE DAMAGE THE WOBBLE CAUSED. THAT HAS BEEN ABOUT 10 MONTHS AND THE SMALL SHAKING HAS STARTED UP AGAIN. GETTING WORSE TO WORSE AS TIME AND MILEAGE GOES BY.

Summary

I WAS ON AN ON-RAMP ENTERING A HIGHWAY. WHEN I TRIED TO SLOW DOWN TO MERGE WITH TRAFFIC, MY BRAKES DID NOT WORK. THE PEDAL WENT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND WOULD NOT STOP OR EVEN SLOW DOWN THE JEEP. I COULD NOT STOP AT ALL MY JEEP AND RAN INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. I INSPECTED MY JEEP AND FOUND THAT THE RIGHT FRONT BRAKE LINE HAD COME APART. THE INTERNAL FITTING WAS RUSTED AND THE RUBBER COATING APPEARED TO BE DAMAGED/BURNED. THIS IS FACTORY BRAKES, NO MODIFICATIONS HAVE EVER BEEN MADE TO ANY PART OF THIS JEEP. THE DEALERSHIP MECHANIC INITALLY TOLD ME THAT THE FRONT DRIVERS SIDE WAS ON THE VERGE OF COMING APART ALSO, THEN REFUSED TO SPEAK TO ME AFTERWARDS. I HAVE A BUMPER TO BUMPER WARRANTY WHICH SPECIFICALLY LISTS ALL OF THESE PARTS AS COVERED. CHRYSLER THEN CONFISCATED MY VEHICLE, REFUSED TO MAKE ANY REPAIRS CLAIMING THEY ARE "INSPECTING IT FOR SAFETY" FOR THE NEXT FIVE BUSINESS DAYS. I DO NOT CONSENT TO THEM TAKING MY VEHICLE FOR THIS PERIOD OF TIME. THEY REFUSED TO PROVIDE ME WITH A RENTAL CAR DURING THIS FIVE BUSINESS DAYS OF THEIR SO-CALLED SAFETY INSPECTION. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING WITH MY JEEP AND WHY THEY WON'T RETURN IT TO ME. CUSTOMER SERVICE HAS BEEN HORRIBLE AND NO ONE WILL GIVE ME ANY INFORMATION ABOUT MY JEEP OR WHAT'S GOING ON WITH IT OTHER THAN IT'S BEEN "UPGRADED" TO A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF MANAGEMENT. I BELIEVE THEY ARE ATTEMPTING TO COVER UP A FACTORY/MANUFACTURING CAUSED DEFECT DUE TO THE WAY THEY ARE HANDLING THIS SITUATION AND THE REFUSAL TO DISCUSS THE JEEP WITH ME.

THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY CHRYSLER HAS THIS PROBLEM WITH A BUNCH OF THEIR JEEPS AND DOES NOT FIX IT FOR ANYONE OR WARN ANYONE. I HAVE TOOK IT TO PLACE AFTER PLACE TRYING TO GET AN ANSWER OF WHY I HAVE CHANGED THE STEERING STABILIZER 4 TIMES NOW. I AM TERRIFIED TO DRIVE MY JEEP NOT KNOWING WHEN IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN. IT COULD BE OVER A VERY SMALL BUMP IN THE ROAD THAT ISN'T EVEN NOTICEABLE TO THE NAKED EYE OR A BIG BUMP IT DOES NOT MATTER. I HAVE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY TRYING TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. THERE IS NO WAY ANYONE WOULD BE ABLE TO STOP THERE VEHICLE AS FAST AS THEY NEED TO BECAUSE OF THE DEATH WOBBLE WHEN THERE IS ICE ON THE ROAD THIS COULD KILL SOMEONE!! SHAKES THE WHOLE FRONT IN UNCONTROLLABLY!

AND SOMETHING TO ALLOW AIR INTO THE TANK WHEN REFUELING. IT SEEMED TO BE OK FOR AWHILE THEN WENT BACK TO THE FUELING PROBLEM. I TOOK IT BACK TO BEGNAL AND THEY SEEMED TO BELIEVE THE ONLY SOLUTION WAS TO REPLACE THE GAS TANK AT MY EXPENSE! THIS IS A LIABILITY TO MY SAFETY. I DROVE THE JEEP TO CALIFORNIA AND BACK THE END OF JUNE OF THIS YEAR AND NEVER HAD A PROBLEM...I HAVE TO USE MY VEHICLE FOR MANY TRIPS OUT OF TOWN AND IT IS FRIGHTENING AS THEY TOLD ME THIS PROBLEM WOULD PROBABLY GET WORSE!

Summary

RECENTLY THE AIR BAG LIGHT IN MY JK JEEP WRANGLER (2008) BEGAN ILLUMINATING. I DID SOME INVESTIGATION PRIOR TO SERVICING IT AT THE DEALER AND DETERMINED IT WAS LIKELY THE CLOCKWORK SPRING SINCE THERE WERE SOME MANY REPORTS OF FAILURE. IN ADDITION, MY ELECTRONIC SWAY BAR DISCONNECT SYSTEM WOULD NOT RE-ENGAGE AFTER A CAMPING TRIP. I DROVE DOWN A MOUNTAIN PASS AND ON A STRETCH OF 75 MPH INTERSTATE WITHOUT A SWAY AND AN AIR BAG WHICH WAS DANGEROUS. I TOOK IT INTO THE DEALERSHIP TO GET BOTH ISSUES LOOKED AT. JEEP CONFIRMED IT WAS THE CLOCKWORK SPRING CAUSING THE AIR BAG LIGHT ($48.00 DIAGNOSIS) AND THAT THE SWAY BAR DISCONNECT MOTOR ($96.00 DIAGNOSIS) HAD FAILED. THEY QUOTED ME FOR $410 TO GET THE CLOCKWORK SPRING FIXED & $1410 TO REPLACE THE SWAY BAR. NO PROMISE WAS MADE TO REIMBURSE ME FOR THE DIAGNOSIS AND REPAIR COST SHOULD THE ISSUES BECOME RECALLS SINCE THEY ARE UNDER INVESTIGATION. I TOOK INITIATIVE TO SELF DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF THE SWAY BAR NOT RECONNECTING SINCE I SUSPECTED THAT THE ELECTRONIC MOTOR WAS STILL FUNCTIONING (I COULD HEAR AND FEEL TO MOTOR OPERATING BEFORE & AFTER I TOOK MY VEHICLE INTO THE DEALERSHIP FOR SERVICE). AFTER DISASSEMBLING (NEVER BEEN TAMPERED WITH PRIOR), I FOUND WATER AND RUSTY PARTS INSIDE AND COULD SEE THAT THE UNIT AS POORLY DESIGNED JUDGING FROM THE ONE SMALL SPRING THAT IS SUPPOSE TO WORK TO RE-ENGAGE THE SWAY BAR BY PUSHING THE INTERNAL GEARS (NOW RUSTY) BACK TOGETHER. I SIMPLY APPLIED SOME GREASE TO THE PARTS AND REINSTALLED THE UNIT. TO MY DELIGHT THIS ALLOWED THE MOTOR TO RECONNECT THE SWAY BAR. IT IS UNCONSCIONABLE TO PUT MOTORIST IN HARMS WAY WITHOUT A FUNCTIONING AIR BAG SYSTEM AND / OR SWAY BAR DUE TO POORLY VEHICLE CONSTRUCTION AND THEN CHARGE FOR DIAGNOSIS AND REPAIR COSTS. PLEASE ISSUE RECALLS FOR THE CLOCKWORK SPRING AND THE LACK OF WATER PROTECTION FOR THE ELECTRONIC SWAY BAR DISCONNECT SYSTEM BEFORE FATALITIES OCCUR.

UPON OPTING TO GO TO TOWN I WENT TO START THE VEHICLE. I TURNED THE IGNITION AND HAD ALL ELECTRICAL POWER BUT NOTHING TO CRANK THE ENGINE. I TESTED ALL COMPONENTS I COULD BEFORE COMING TO THE CONCLUSION IT WAS A COMPUTER RELATED ISSUE FOR A JEEP DEALER. I MADE THE ARRANGEMENTS AND TOWED THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALERSHIP 40 MILE AWAY. AFTER HAVING THE VEHICLE FOR A DAY ALONG WITH ALL MY FAULT FINDING DATA THE DEALER CALLED TO INFORM ME IT WAS THE TIPM. AFTER QUESTIONING THE REP AS TO THE CAUSES OF A FAILURE I WAS TOLD THAT IT UNKNOWN BUT A VERY COMMON PROBLEM. AFTER AN EXPENSIVE REPAIR AND 400 MILES POST REPAIR I HAVE HAD NO FURTHER ISSUES.

THE DRIVER SIDE AIRBAG IS NOT FUNCTIONING DUE TO A FAULTY CLOCKSPRING!!! I ACTUALLY OWN 3 2008'S AND ALL HAVE HAD THIS ISSUE!!! THIS IS A COMMONLY KNOWN PROBLEM WITH ALL JEEP JK'S, YET CHRYSLER IS SIMPLY IGNORING THIS ISSUE AFTER RECALLING 2007 AND 2008 RHD'S!! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. I RECEIVED NO HELP FROM CHRYSLER OTHER THAN "WE WILL NOTIFY YOU IF A RECALL IS MADE". THEY COULD PROVIDE ME WITH ZERO INFORMATION ABOUT HOW MANY PEOPLE HAD THIS EXACT ISSUE. HERE'S THEIR MAILING ADDRESS IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LET THEM KNOW YOU DISAGREE WITH THIS BLATANT LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY ON THEIR PART. IS THERE NOTHING MORE WE CAN DO UNTIL WE CAN CHECK THE FATALITY SQUARE?? THIS IS ABSURD. I'LL BE SENDING THEM A LETTER DAILY REMINDING THEM IN CASE THEY FORGET.

Summary

SEPTEMBER OF 2014 LAST YEAR I NOTICED THE AIRBAG MALFUNCTION LIGHT COME ON. I CALLED MY LOCAL JEEP CHRYSLER DEALER AND LEFT A FEW MESSAGES ABOUT RECALLS AND IF THIS MEANT A PROBLEM WITH MY AIRBAGS. NO ONE EVER CALLED ME BACK AFTER 2 WEEKS OF WAITING THE AIRBAG MALFUNCTION LIGHT WENT OFF AND IT WOULD STAY OFF FOR WEEKS AND MYSTERIOUSLY COME ON PERIODICALLY. SO AFTER A FEW MONTHS GO BY IN DECEMBER OF 2014 I WAS AT A SUPERMARKET PARKING LOT WITH MY WIFE AND THREE CHILDREN WHEN WE PULLED INTO A PARKING SPACE AMD THW HORN, LIGHTS, WIPERS AND DASH LIT UP. I QUICKLY DISCONNECTED THE NEG BATTERY AND RECONNECTED IT TWO OR THREE TIMES AND IT STOPPPED. I LOOKED ONLINE FOR SIMILAR PROBLEMS AND DISCONMECTED THE HORN AMP VIA FUSEBOX. JUMPSTART TO FEB 2015 WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY THE HORN BLARES AND WIPERS GO OFF BUT THE VEHICLE TURNS OFF AND I GLIDED TO THE BREAKDOWN LANE WHILE OTHER CARS AVOIDED ME. 5/27/2015 MY WIFE OPENED THE JEEP DOOR AND IT TRIGGERED THE WIPERS, DASH LIGHTS AND WIPER FLUID TO SPRAY. WHEN YOU'RE ON A FIXED INCOME BRINGING YOUR VEHICLE IN FOR REPAIRS IS NOT ALWAYS FEASABLE. I TOOK THE JEEP TO AUTOZONE FREE DIAGNOSTIC AND GOT A CODE U0141. AFTER READING THE SIMILAR STORIES WE'RE GOING INTO THE DEALERSHIP FOR REPAIRS.

THIS CONTINUED FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES NOTHING WE DID WOULD MAKE IT STOP. IT HAS HAPPENED 8 MORE TIMES SINCE THE FIRST TIME. THE ONLY WAY TO GET IT TO STOP IS DISCONNECT BATTERY. (WHICH WE FOUND THIS OUT AFTER THE 2ND TIME OF IT HAPPENING) THIS HAS HAPPENED GOING DOWN THE ROAD ALONG WITH JUST OPENING THE BACK GATE. IT ACTS LIKE IT HAS GREMLINS. THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECALL SINCE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING ISSUES. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD! WHEN THIS STARTS IT SCARES THE CRAP OUT OF YOU AND YOU HAVE TO FIND THE NEAREST PLACE TO PULL OFF TO DISCONNECT BATTERY TERMINALS.

THE TOTALLY INTEGRATED POWER MODULE (TIPM) IS FAULTY AS IT IS IN MANY WRANGLERS OF THIS YEAR. ON A REGULAR BASIS, THE HORN WILL ENGAGE CONTINUOUSLY, THE WIPERS TURN ONE, THE SPRAY NOZZLE SPRAYS FLUID, THE RADIO OCCASIONALLY WILL TURN OFF, THE HEADLIGHTS TURN OFF (DRIVING HAZARD AT NIGHT), AND THE DOORS LOCK SOMETIMES. ALL OF THIS HAPPENS AT THE SAME TIME. YOU CAN TURN THE KEY OFF AND TAKE IT OUT AND THE ENGINE CONTINUES TO RUN AND THE PROBLEMS CONTINUE TO OCCUR UNTIL YOU EITHER UNHOOK THE BATTERY OR KNOCK ON TOP OF THE TIPM. SOMETIMES THE VEHICLE WILL NOT START. CODE GIVEN IS U0141 WHICH IS "LOSS OF COMMUNICATION WITH THE FRONT CONTROL MODULE (TIPM)." THIS IS A VERY WELL KNOWN ISSUE WITH THE LATE 2007 AND 2008 YEARS OF THE WRANGLER MODEL. IT IS A FAULTY PRODUCT INSTALLED BY CHRYSLER AND MANY DEALERSHIPS RECOGNIZE THE ISSUE. CHRYSLER REFUSES TO ISSUE A RECALL FOR THE PROBLEM.

THIS HAS BEEN A RECALL ON THE 2007 WRANGLER BUT FROM MY UNDERSTANDING THERE HAVE BEEN MANY DIFFERENT MODEL YEARS THAT HAVE THE SAME ISSUE. I WENT THROUGH JEEP AND THEY SAID HEY WOULD NOT COVER IT SO I HAD TO PURCHASE THE PART MYSELF. THE AIRBAG IS SOMETHING I FEEL THEY SHOULD NOT TAKE SO LIGHTLY. IF THERE IS A KNOWN PROBLEM AND A PERSON TAKES THE TIME TO CONTACT CUSTOMER SUPPORT IN MY OPINION THEY SHOULD TAKE CARE OF IT WARRANTY OR NOT.

SINCE I PURCHASED THIS JEEP, IT INTERMITTENTLY WILL NOT START--TYPICALLY IN WARM WEATHER. WE REPLACED THE GROUND ON THE BATTERY, PURCHASED NEW BATTERY, STARTER, NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH AND ALL TRANSMISSION SENSORS. STILL, IT WILL NOT START IN WARM WEATHER. WE LITERALLY HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE COOLS, THEN THE JEEP WILL START. I RESEARCHED THE ISSUE ON-LINE AND FOUND MANY CONSUMER REFERENCES TO THIS PROBLEM FOR THIS VEHICLE--COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS "THE JEEP FLU." MANY REPORT EITHER THE NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH OR THE TIPM IS THE ISSUE. MANY REFERENCES COMPLAIN THAT CHRYSLER IS FULLY AWARE OF THE PROBLEM--TIPMS ON BACK ORDER--BUT THEY ARE SILENT. THIS JEEP HAS STRANDED US MANY TIMES--WHICH CAN ALSO CAUSE SIGNIFICANT HARM FOR CONSUMERS. CHRYSLER SHOULD ACKNOWLEDGE THIS PROBLEM AND PROVIDE A FIX! *TR

Summary

I BOUGHT A USED JEEP FROM NEWARK JEEP EAGLE IN DELAWARE WHICH HAD A 30 DAY WARRANTY. THE SAME NIGHT THAT I DROVE IT HOME ON THE HIGHWAY, I HIT UNEVEN PAVEMENT AND THE JEEP STARTED SHAKING VIOLENTLY. TOOK THE JEEP BACK TO THE DEALER, THEY REPLACED THE STEERING STABILIZER, TRACK BAR, AND SWITCHED MY TIRES AND THIS CONTINUED TO HAPPEN AFTER EVERY REPAIR. SINCE I ONLY HAD A 30 DAY WARRANTY I COULD NOT CONTINUE TO TAKE IT BACK FOR ADDITIONAL REPAIR DUE TO COSTS, HOWEVER NOTHING SEEMED TO WORK AND NOW THIS HAPPENS AT HIGHER SPEEDS AND VERY OFTEN. THIS WOBBLE HAPPENS EVERY TIME I DRIVE THE JEEP AND IT IS UNSAFE. I SEE SEVERAL OTHER COMPLAINTS REGARDING THIS WOBBLE ON SEVERAL FORUMS AND ON JEEPS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN ALTERED LIKE MINE. THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED IN A RECALL AS PEOPLE WHO SPEND $25,000 FOR A VEHICLE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO GO BROKE TO FIX AN OBVIOUS MANUFACTURER ERROR. I CANNOT DRIVE ME VEHICLE ON THE HIGHWAY FOR FEAR OF MY SAFETY AS WELL AS HAVING TO SLOW DOWN AND PULL ACROSS THE ENTIRE HIGHWAY COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. *TR

I WAS JUST DRIVING DOWN A PAVED RESIDENTIAL ROAD ON A SLIGHT DECLINE ABOUT 40 MPH AND IT STARTED WOBBLING AND SHAKING THE ENTIRE CAR. I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING TO LOSE CONTROL AND COULDN'T SWERVE OVER SINCE THERE WAS TRAFFIC. I APPLIED THE BRAKES LIGHTLY, BUT NOT TOO MUCH SINCE THERE WAS OTHER VEHICLES BEHIND ME THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO SLAM INTO ME FROM BEHIND IF I SUDDENLY BRAKED TOO HARD. EVEN WHILE APPLYING BRAKES THE JEEP WAS STILL WOBBLING VIOLENTLY. VIOLENTLY! SERIOUSLY THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO CAUSE A WRECK. FINALLY THE JEEP STOPPED WOBBLING WHERE I PULLED OVER AND CHECKED IF MY TIRES WERE LOSE OR ANYTHING. EVERYTHING WAS FINE ON THE OUTSIDE. WHEN I CAME HOME I WANTED TO SEE IF ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS ISSUE, AND TURNS OUT IT EVEN HAS A NAME CALLED THE "DEATH WOBBLE". MY JEEP IS A 2008, WITH 40,000 MILE. THIS JEEP IS RARELY USED. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. NOT ONLY THE WRANGLER, BUT MANY OTHER VEHICLES AS WELL. CHRYSLER SEEMS TO DENY THAT ANY ISSUES EXIST CONCERNING THE "DEATH WOBBLE". PLEASE HELP. *TR

I WAS TRAVELING ON A BUSY HIGHWAY AT A SPEED OF 65 MILES PER HOUR WHEN OUT OF THE BLUE THE JEEP STARTED TO SHAKE UNCONTROLLABLY. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, I HAD A SEMI RIGHT BEHIND ME HAULING A GAS TANKER. FORTUNATELY FOR ME I WAS TRAVELING IN THE SPEED LANE WHICH IS ADJACENT TO THE EMERGENCY RUN OFF THE LANE. I LET MY FOOT OF THE GAS AND ROLLED/TREMBLING OFF THE HIGHWAY INTO THE EMG LANE TILL I CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP. AFTER CATCHING MY BREATH AND MY HEART. I PROCEEDED TO GET OUT OF THE CAR TO CHECK AND SEE IF THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE FRONT END AXLE. I DID NOT SEE ANYTHING PROBLEM SO GOT BACK IN THE JEEP AND DROVE OFF. I DROVE ABOUT ANOTHER 50 MILES THAT NIGHT AND WAS NOT ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM AT ANY SPEED. SO A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER I TOOK THE JEEP IN TO SEE MY SERVICE ADVISOR AT PLANET DODGE IN DORAL, FL. AFTER A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SYMPTOMS AND WHAT HAPPENED, THE SERVICE ADVISOR CALMLY SAID IT'S A COMMON PROBLEM CALLED "THE DEATH WOBBLE". SO I AM NOW HAVING TO DROP OFF THIS JEEP IN ORDER TO GET A DIAGNOSIS AND HAVE THE PROBLEM REPAIRED. I HOPE IT NEVER HAPPENS TO ANYONE; ESPECIALLY MY MOTHER WHO OFTEN DRIVES THE JEEP.

Summary

IN MAY 2014 I PURCHASES A USED JEEP FROM A DEALER IN KERNERSVILLE, NC AND EXPERIENCED ISSUES WITH THE VEHICLE THE DEALERSHIP CLAIMS ARE MANUFACTURE ISSUES: -LIGHTING: WE HAVE HAD TO REPLACE THE TAILLIGHT BULBS ON BOTH SIDES TWICE SINCE PURCHASE (LESS THAN A YEAR AGO). THESE LIGHTS CONSTANTLY HOLD WATER AND WE HAVE TO EMPTY THEM REPEATEDLY AND THE WATER NEVER SEEMS TO EMPTY COMPLETELY. THESE LIGHTS ALSO SEEM TO BE AFFECTED BY WIRING AS THEY DO NOT ALWAYS ILLUMINATE DESPITE AN EFFECTIVE BULB. WE TOOK IT IN FOR REPAIRS UNDER OUR PURCHASED WARRANTY AND THE DEALERSHIP STATES THERE IS WATER DAMAGE DUE TO INSUFFICIENT WIRE PROTECTION. THIS IS VERY CONCERNING AS WATER IS AN EXCELLENT CONDUCTOR OF ELECTRICITY. REGARDLESS OF THE USED CONDITION OF THE CAR I SEE NO REASON WHY THIS SHOULD BE THE CASE AS WIRING SEEMS VERY MUCH LIKE A MANUFACTURE ONLY RESPONSIBILITY. -WHEELS: THE VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED WITH ALL ORIGINAL WHEELS (NOT TIRES) AND THE VALVE STEMS ON EACH WHEEL HAVE DISINTEGRATED COMPLETELY AND CRUMBLED APART. WE REALIZED THIS WHEN THE LOW AIR LIGHT CAME ON AND WE WENT TO FILL THE TIRES THIS ISSUE SEEMS TO EFFECT HOW WELL THE TIRES CAN HOLD AIR. -SPEEDOMETER: ORIGINALLY WHEN WE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE THE SPEEDOMETER WAS OFF BY ABOUT 10MPH (WE DID NOT KNOW THIS UNTIL DRIVING TWO SEPARATE CARS AND THINKING "HMM IS THE OTHER DRIVER REALLY SPEEDING THAT MUCH?" CALL ONE ANOTHER ON THE PHONE AND DETERMINED THE SUBARU WOULD DRIVE 60MPH AND SEE WHAT SPEED THE JEEP CLAIMED TO BE DRIVING WHEN MATCHED. WE HAD THIS ISSUE "FIXED" ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO AND NOW IT IS EVEN WORSE. UPON DOING THE SAME SPEED TEST THE JEEP WAS NOW 12MPH OVER WHAT IT SHOULD BE. OTHER ISSUES NON-RESOLVED BY DEALERSHIP: RATTLING SOUND NEAR CLUTCH, LESS THAN AWESOME BRAKING, AND A TIRE LIGHT THAT WILL NOT GO OFF NO MATTER WHAT ACTIONS ARE TAKEN. *TR

Summary

I WAS DRIVING HOME FROM WORK ON A STATE HIGHWAY, EVEN THOUGH POSTED SPEED LIMIT WAS 65MPH, TRAFFIC WAS HEAVY AND I WAS FORCED TO SLOW DOWN TO AROUND 50 TO 53 MPH. WHEN SPEEDING BACK UP TO 55 MPH MY JEEP SAHARA SHOOK VIOLENTLY AND UNCONTROLLABLY, I THOUGHT MY VEHICLE WAS GOING TO SHAKE APART, I HIT THE BRAKES AND WENT DOWN TO 50 MPH (THANK GOD NO ONE WAS CLOSE BEHIND ME AND DID NOT HIT ME) AND THE SHAKING/WOBBLE STOPPED. AS TRAFFIC PICKED BACK UP AND I WAS ABLE TO SPEED UP TO 60 MPH, THERE WAS NO REAL PROBLEM (A SLIGHT SHAKE AS I PAST 55 MPH), BUT AS SOON AS I HAD TO SLOW DOWN TO 55 MPH THE VEHICLE STARTED TO SHAKE/WOBBLE UNCONTROLLABLY AGAIN. IT APPEARS IF I ACCELERATE FROM 0 TO 55 MPH I GET THE VIOLENT SHAKING/WOBBLING BUT IF I GO FROM 0 TO 60-65 MPH, I DO NOT REALLY EXPERIENCE THE VIOLENT UNCONTROLLABLY SHAKING, JUST A SLIGHT SHAKE AT THE 55 MPH GOING TO 60-65 MPH. IF I SLOW DOWN FROM 60-65 MPH TO 55 MPH I GET THAT SAME VIOLENT UNCONTROLLABLE SHAKING/WOBBLING. THIS HAPPENS EVERYDAY - NOT RANDOMLY! I FOUND EVEN ON NON-HIGHWAYS, WHERE SPEED LIMITS THAT ALLOW 55 MPH, I GET THE SAME VIOLENT SHAKING. THIS IS MY ONLY VEHICLE AND I DEPEND ON IT TO GET TO AND FROM WORK EVERY WEEKDAY. I HAVE READ THE FORUMS AND I HAVE CHECKED THE TIRE PRESSURE, IT HAS NO EFFECT ON THE SHAKING/WOBBLING. I HAVE NEVER TAKEN IT OFF-ROAD, I DON'T EVEN PUT IT IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE. MY SON HAS HIS OWN JEEP THAT HE HAS WORK ON FOR YEARS AND HE LOOKED AT MY JEEP (THINGS LIKE STEERING COMPONENTS, BALL JOINTS, TIRES, STEERING DAMPER, ETC.) ALL THE THINGS JEEP OWNERS HAVE POSTED ON THESE FORUMS AND HAVE PAID DEARLY FOR AT THE DEALERSHIP AND EVERYTHING SEEMS OK. I RECENTLY FOUND FROM A JEEP FORUM THAT THIS IS CALLED THE 'DEATH WOBBLE'. *TR

Summary

HIT A SMALL BUMP IN THE ROAD WHILE DRIVING 70 MPH, THIS CAUSED VIOLENT VIBRATIONS IN THE FRONT END THAT WOULDN'T STOP UNTIL I ALMOST STOPPED. IF I HADN'T HAD A GOOD GRIP ON THE WHEEL I WOULD HAVE LOST CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. THIS HAS HAPPENED 4 TIMES SINCE AND AT SPEEDS AS LOW AS 55MPH. CHECKED WITH DEALER AND THEY SAID IT WOULD REQUIRE REPLACING ONE PART AT A TIME TILL THE PROBLEM IS CORRECTED. THIS WOULD BE VERY EXPENSIVE AND YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW IF IT WAS FIXED. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AS YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. TWICE I WAS GOING 70 WITH A TRACTOR TRAILER CLOSE BEHIND. YESTERDAY I WAS IN HEAVY TRAFFIC IN THE MIDDLE LANE GOING 70 WITH A TRACTOR TRAILER BEHIND ME WHEN THE FRONT END STARTED TO VIBRATE AND BOUNCE. I COULDN'T GET OVER SO I HAD TO ALMOST STOP IN THE MIDDLE LANE IN RUSH HOUR ON I-10. THIS PROBLEMIS REFERRED TO AS THE DEATH WOBBLE. IT IS VERY SCARY AND COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT OR EVEN A ROLL OVER IF YOU DON'T HAVE A GOOD GRIP ON THE WHEEL. (VEHICLE IS NOT LIFTED & FRONT END HAD JUST BEEN ALIGNED BEFORE FIRST INCIDENT). *TR

2008 JEEP WRANGLER SAHARA TRAIL RATED HORN, LOCKS, WIPER FLUID WILL COME ON WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD FOR NO APPARENT REASON, CAUSING OTHER DRIVERS TO STOP OR LOOK AROUND DUE TO THE HORN GOING OFF AND THE DRIVER OF THE JEEP CANNOT SEE DUE TO THE WATER BEING SPRAYED ALL OVER THE WINDSHIELD UNEXPECTEDLY. THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THIS IS TO PULL OVER AND PULL THE FUSES OR BATTERY TERMINALS ONCE YOU GET HOME. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE. *TR

WHILE PARKING MY JEEP IN A PARKING GARAGE, THE FRONT BRAKE LINE SNAPPED DURING A TURN. THE BROKEN LINE OCCURRED WHERE IT CONNECTS TO THE DRIVER'S SIDE TIRE FROM THE ENGINE. I LOST ALL ABILITY TO BRAKE AND LOST ALL BRAKE FLUID. ONLY EMERGENCY BRAKE WOULD WORK. HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO DEALER FOR COSTLY REPAIR TO INCLUDE REPLACING FRONT BRAKE PADS BECAUSE BRAKE FLUID RUINED THEM. VERY LUCKY I WAS IN A PARKING GARAGE AND NOT ON A MAJOR ROAD DRIVING AT HIGHER SPEED. *TR

THE AIR BAG DASH LIGHT CAME ON, INDICATING A FAULT IN THE AIRBAG SAFETY SYSTEM. THEN THE SEATBELT LIGHT CAME ON EVEN THOUGH THE SEATBELT WAS FASTENED. IT SEEMS THAT WHEN THE DRIVING LIGHTS WERE ON, THE BRAKE LIGHTS WOULD NOT LIGHT AT ALL; AND THE TURN INDICATOR DID A FAST BLINK. THE DEALER BELIEVES THE CLOCK SPRING IN THE STEERING HAS A SHORT AND CAUSED THE OTHER ELECTRICAL FAULTS. SO THE CAR SEEMS TO HAVE A NON-FUNCTIONAL AIRBAG, AND NO BRAKE LIGHTS. THIS IS A DANGEROUS FAILURE. IT APPEARS THIS IS A COMMON FAILURE MODEL ON JEEPS, BUT THEY HAVE NOT ISSUED A RECALL ON THIS VIN YET. *TR

AGAIN MY WIPERS START GOING AND THE LIGHTS COME ON AND THE HORN WON'T STOP BLARING SO I HAD TO OPEN THE HOOD AND TAP ON THE FUSE BOX LID. AFTER THE 5TH ATTEMPT THE CAR DECIDED TO COME ON. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING MY VEHICLE IF I AM RIGHT NEXT TO THE EMERGENCY LANE. THIS HAS TO STOP AND SHOULD BE A RECALL. I HAVE A CHILD AND THIS IS VERY NOT SAFE. THE SAME INCIDENT HAPPENED TO ME LAST WEEK COMING DOWN A BUSY STREET. AGAIN BLESSED I WAS NEAR THE DRIVEWAY OF A BUSINESS I DID NOT GET INTO AN ACCIDENT AND PULLED OVER WAITING FOR MY JEEP TO DECIDE WHEN IT WANTED TO START AGAIN. WHY IS THIS NOT A RECALL? I TOOK MY JEEP SEVERAL MONTHS BACK TO THE DEALER AND WAS WITHOUT TRANSPORTATION FOR 2 WEEKS BEFORE THEY GOT TO LOOKING AT IT AND STATED THEY COULD NOT FIND THE PROBLEM AND SENT IT BACK HOME TO ME.

Summary

STARTED MY JEEP EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. MY AIR BAG INDICATOR LIGHT CAME ON AS NORMAL, BUT DID NOT SHUT OFF LIKE USUAL. I WAS A BIT WORRIED TO DRIVE IT AS I ASSUME THE AIR BAG WILL NOT DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT. HOWEVER I CHOSE TO DRIVE ANYHOW. THE INDICATOR LIGHT WILL GO OFF BUT QUICKLY COMES BACK ON AT AROUND 20-30MPH. FOLLOWED BY A DING EACH TIME IT RETURNS BACK ON. AS IT TURNS OUT, MY MECHANIC SCANNED MY JEEP, BRINGING UP THE CODE OF A FAULTY AIRBAG, CLOCK SPRING. AS A SAFETY ISSUE, I WAS CONCERNED AND CALLED CHRYSLER CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPT TO SEE IF A RECALL HAD BEEN ISSUED. UNFORTUNATELY, NOTHING FOR MY VIN# IS COMING UP. SO THAT MEANS I AM ON MY OWN IN REPAIRING THIS SAFETY ISSUE. MY VEHICLE IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. SO THAT MEANS I AM TO PAY OUT OF POCKET. DEALERSHIP PARTS DEPARTMENT HAS THEM IN STOCK, BUT THEY COST $270 ONLY IN PARTS. NOT INCLUDING LABOR TO INSTALL THE CLOCK SPRING. PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS A VERY KNOWN ISSUE IN MOST NEWER JEEP JK'S. I FOLLOW MANY FORUMS FOR MY JEEP. ALMOST EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM TALK ABOUT THIS KNOWN ISSUE. YET CHRYSLER IS NOT STEPPING UP AND HANDLING THIS IN A SAFE MANNER. I AM THOROUGHLY DISAPPOINTED IN THEM AND UPSET NOW I HAVE NO ACTIVE AIRBAG. TILL I SAVE ENOUGH CASH TO HAVE THIS CLOCK SPRING INSTALLED. :-( PLEASE PRAY NOTHING HAPPENS TO ME AND MY FAMILY. AS IT WILL BE AN EXPENSIVE CHOICE CHRYSLER IS MAKING. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.. [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *TR

Summary

FREQUENTLY WHEN I TRY TO LOCK MY DOOR (WITH REMOTE ENTRY KEY), THE JEEP WILL HONK, BUT I NOTICE THAT 1 OR BOTH OF THE DOORS HAVE NOT LOCKED (SOMETIMES DIVER, SOMETIMES PASSENGER, SOMETIMES BOTH). AFTER MUCH EXPERIMENTATION, I CAN NOT FIND A PATTERN TO THIS. UNLOCKING AND RE-LOCKING RESOLVES THE PROBLEM. SOMETIMES WHEN UNLOCKING, MY JEEP MAKES A LOUD HONK. I HAVE ALSO HAD TROUBLE STARTING MY JEEP A COUPLE TIMES. I GO TO TURN THE KEY, AND THERE IS NO CRANKING (LIGHTS DO TURN ON). AFTER REMOVING THE KEY AND TRYING AGAIN, THERE IS NO PROBLEM. I HAD ONE INSTANCE WHERE MY JEEP WAS RUNNING, AND THE RADIO SYSTEM BECAME COMPLETELY UNPOWERED (NO RADIO, NO TIME ON LCD, NOTHING). AFTER ABOUT 1 MINUTE, THE POWER WAS RESTORED. THIS COMBINATION OF PROBLEMS MAKES ME WORRIED THAT THIS IS RELATED TO THE TIPM, WHICH MANY OTHER WRANGLER OWNERS ARE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH. MY PROBLEMS ARE NOT YET ENDANGERING (ALTHOUGH DEFINITELY ANNOYING). I AM HOPING THERE IS NO PROGRESSION OF SYMPTOMS LIKE OTHER WRANGLER OWNERS HAVE. *TR

THE GAS TANK CAN NOT BE FILLED WITHOUT CONSTANTLY RE-STARTING THE FUEL PUMP, IT STOPS EVERY FEW SECONDS, IT HAPPENS AT EVERY GAS STATION OR ANY FUEL PUMP, SO IT IS DEFINITELY NOT THE PUMP BUT A PROBLEM WITH THE JEEP GAS TANK AND/OR IT'S COMPONENTS. IT GOT WORSE OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS AND MONTHS AND IS TO THE POINT NOW WHERE IT TAKES ME 10-15 MINUTES TO FILL UP 11 -15 GALLONS OF FUEL. THE GAS TANK WAS REPLACED UNDER A RECALL BACK IN 2011 (AT APPROX. 34000 MILES) WHERE WITH THE OLD TANK THE FUEL PUMP WOULD NOT STOP IN TIME WHEN FULL AND THEREFORE IT RESULTED IN THE "SPILL-BACK" PROBLEM EVERY TIME. THIS PROBLEM WAS FIXED WITH REPLACEMENT AFTER RECALL, BUT NOW I HAVE THE PROBLEM THAT I JUST HAVE THIS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TIME FILLING THE TANK. *TR

I HAD TO GET MY BOYFRIEND TO DISCONNECT MY HORN BECAUSE AT 7 A.M. IT IS VERY EMBARRASSING TO WAKE THE NEIGHBORS! I HAD TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY. NOW I CAN SOMETIMES GET IT TO STOP BY SLAPPING THE FUSE BOX COVER. AT TIMES MY CAR WON'T SHUT OFF WITH THE KEY TAKEN OUT SO I HAVE TO LET IT JUMP IN FIRST GEAR WHILE PUSHING THE BRAKE. THE FIRST TIME THIS HAPPENED TO ME I ALMOST REAR ENDED A CAR IN THE DAYCARE PARKING LOT AS WE ALL PARALLEL PARK TO GET TO THE FRONT DOOR. THIS HAPPENS WHENEVER IT WANTS TO AND NOW THAT IT IS GETTING DARKER EARLIER I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT TRANSPORTING MY CHILD WITH NO HEADLIGHTS AT NIGHT BECAUSE I HAVE NO OTHER MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION WHICH THIS HAPPENED TO ME ON THE WAY TO PICK HER UP LAST NIGHT 11/12/14. THE ISSUE IS HAPPENING MORE OFTEN IN COLDER WEATHER AND IS NOT SAFE AT ALL TO HAVE NO HEADLIGHTS WORKING AT NIGHT BECAUSE OF THE ELECTRICAL ISSUES GOING ON. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE CHRYSLER/DODGE/JEEP DEALERSHIP AND HAD TO WAIT ALMOST TWO WEEKS BEFORE THEY COULD LOOK AT IT. THEY COULD NOT FIND THE ISSUE BECAUSE WHEN THEY CHECKED EVERYTHING IT DID NOT DO ANYTHING BUT ACT NORMAL FOR THEM.

ON MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DASHBOARD, THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT FLASHES ON EVERY MINUTE WITH A LOUD CHIME, AN INDICATION THAT THERE IS SOMETHING MALFUNCTIONING OR INTERFERING WITH THE VEHICLE'S AIRBAGS.THIS HAS BEEN A RECURRING ISSUE AND CONCERN FOR MANY 2007+ JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) OWNERS, INCLUDING MYSELF, AND HAS BEEN SHOWN TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO BE CAUSED BY A FAULTY CLOCKSPRING WITHIN THE VEHICLE'S STEERING WHEEL. THIS FAULTY CLOCKSPRING IS THE CULPRIT FOR POTENTIAL AIRBAG FAILURE IN THE 2007+ JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DURING AN ACCIDENT OR PREMATURE DEPLOYMENT WHEN SIMPLY DRIVING AROUND. MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP HAS ADMITTED THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE SEEN MANY JEEP OWNERS WITH THE SAME FAULTY CLOCKSPRING, BUT THEY CHARGE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS TO FIX IT. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THAT FOR EVERY JEEP OWNER THAT TAKES THE TIME TO WRITE A COMPLAINT, THERE MUST BE MANY MORE THAT ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUES WHO NEVER TOOK THE TIME TO WRITE A COMPLAINT. I AM WRITING THIS WITH THE HOPE THAT SOMEONE WILL NOTICE THE LARGE AMOUNT OF 2007+ JEEP WRANGLER OWNERS WHO ARE HAVING THIS SAME ISSUE WITH THE FAULTY CLOCKSPRING, AND INITIATE A RECALL THAT CAN HELP FIX THE CLOCKSPRING AND KEEP PEOPLE SAFE. *TR

UPON TURNING ON MY JEEP THE AIRBAG LIGHT DID NOT GO OUT AFTER THE START-UP LIGHT CHECK. WHEN RESTARTING THE VEHICLE IT WENT OUT. WHILE DRIVING IT CAME BACK ON AND CHIMED, IT HAS CONTINUED TO COME ON INTERMITTENTLY WHILE DRIVING AND WHILE PARKED. THE ESP ALSO BEGAN INTERMITTENTLY ILLUMINATING WHILE DRIVING ON A SMOOTH STRAIGHT HIGHWAY. THIS INTERMITTENT ISSUE HAS PERSISTED FOR OVER A YEAR. IN DOING RESEARCH BOTH ISSUES CAN POTENTIALLY BE RELATED BACK TO THE AIRBAG CLOCKSPRING. A RECALL EXISTS FOR RHD JEEP WRANGLERS OF MY SAME YEAR THAT USE THE SAME PART. WHEN CONTACTING A JEEP DEALER ABOUT THIS SAFETY ISSUE THEY SAID THEY WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING TO RESOLVE IT UNLESS I PAID FOR ALL PARTS AND LABOR. IN CHECKING ONLINE FORUMS THIS IS APPARENTLY NOT AS RARE AS THE INITIAL RECALL STATES. THERE ARE EVEN ONLINE TUTORIALS ON HOW TO CHANGE IT YOURSELF SINCE THE MANUFACTURER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE THIS AS A PROBLEM ON LHD JEEPS. (HTTP://WWW.JK-FORUM.COM/FORUMS/JK-WRITE-UPS-39/CLOCKSPRING-REPLACEMENT-273201/) WHILE THIS HASN'T CAUSED A SAFETY PROBLEM YET, MY CONCERN IS IF I AM INVOLVED IN A COLLISION THAT I WILL NOT HAVE THE PROTECTION I AM SUPPOSED TO FROM A FAULTY MANUFACTURER PART. *TR

UPON EXITING THE PARKING LOT OF MY EMPLOYER, THE AIRBAG SIGNAL LIGHT ILLUMINATED AND SOUNDED. I IMMEDIATELY PULLED INTO A NEARBY PARKING SPOT AND TURNED THE CAR OFF IN HOPES OF RESETTING THE ALARM. THIS DID NOT WORK AND THE LIGHT HAS BEEN ILLUMINATED EVER SINCE. AFTER SOME ONLINE RESEARCH I CAME ACROSS FORUMS FOR THE CLOCK SPRING FAILURE, HOWEVER, MY HORN AND TURN SIGNALS WORK PROPERLY AND THE AIRBAG FUSES ARE STILL FUNCTIONAL. I HAVE TAKEN THE VEHICLE TO MY MECHANIC FOR A COMPUTER DIAGNOSTIC, HOWEVER, NO CODES WERE GIVEN AND HE SAID "WELL, WE SHOULD START WITH THE CLOCK SPRING AND SEE IF THAT FIXES THE PROBLEM." I CALLED CHRYSLER/JEEP IN HOPES OF ATTAINING SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. TO MY DISMAY, THE WOMAN ON THE OTHER LINE INFORMED MY THAT I WAS OVER MY WARRANTY MILEAGE AND "NOTHING CAN REALLY BE DONE." I TRULY DON'T MIND THE LIGHT OR EVEN THE SPORADIC (EVERY 2 OR 3 MINUTE) DING THE LIGHT MAKES. WHAT I DO MIND IS THE FACT THAT MY VEHICLE, WITH DOORS AND A ROOF MAINLY TO PROTECT AGAINST THE ELEMENTS, HAS NON-FUNCTIONING AIRBAGS THAT CHRYSLER DOESN'T SEEM TO DESIRE TO REMEDY.

ON THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DASHBOARD, THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT FLASHES ON EVERY OTHER MINUTE WITH A CHIME, AN INDICATION THAT THERE IS SOMETHING MALFUNCTIONING OR INTERFERING WITH THE VEHICLE'S AIRBAGS.THIS HAS BEEN A RECURRING ISSUE AND CONCERN FOR MANY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) OWNERS, INCLUDING MYSELF, AND HAS BEEN SHOWN TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO BE CAUSED BY A FAULTY CLOCKSPRING WITHIN THE VEHICLE'S STEERING WHEEL. THIS FAULTY CLOCKSPRING IS THE CULPRIT FOR POTENTIAL AIRBAG FAILURE IN THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DURING AN ACCIDENT OR PREMATURE DEPLOYMENT WHEN SIMPLY DRIVING AROUND. DAIMLER CHRYSLER HAS REFUSED TO ADDRESS THE SAFETY CONCERN OF THEIR FAULTY CLOCKSPRING THAT CAN CAUSE FAILURE OF THE VEHICLE'S AIRBAGS FROM PROPERLY DEPLOYING. *TR

MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER X RECENTLY STARTED EXHIBITING FALSE AIRBAG WARNINGS. THE DASH LIGHT FLASHES ON INTERMITTENTLY, SOMETIMES TURNING OFF QUICKLY AND SOMETIMES STAYING ON FOR SOME TIME; WHEN THE LIGHT IS ON IT ALSO CHIMES SPORADICALLY. RESEARCHING THE PROBLEM ONLINE, I FIND THAT MANY MANY MANY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER OWNERS ARE EXPERIENCING THIS SAME PROBLEM. APPARENTLY IT WAS COVERED BY A RECALL FOR 2007 WRANGLERS AND FOR 2008 WRANGLERS WITH A RIGHT-HAND DRIVE; IT SHOULD BE COVERED FOR MY VEHICLE. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND IT TROUBLES ME THAT THERE HAS BEEN NO ACTION. *TR

Summary

WHILE DRIVING AT HIGHWAY SPEED, THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS OF THE JEEP STARTED GOING CRAZY. WINDSHIELD WIPERS INTERMITTENTLY TURNED ON (SUNNY AND DRY AT TIME), WASHER FLUID STARTED SPRAYING CONTINUOUSLY, HORN HONED REPEATEDLY AT A LOW TONE, DOOR LOCKS LOCKED/UNLOCKED REPEATEDLY AND AC SYSTEM TURNED OF. STOPPED VEHICLE AT HIGHWAY SHOULDER AND THIS CONTINUED EVEN WHEN ENGINE TURNED OFF. DISCONNECTED BATTERY. WAITED 1 MINUTE, RECONNECTED BATTERY, AND EVERYTHING SEEMED FINE. DROVE ANOTHER 5 MINUTES AND SAME SYMPTOMS STARTED AGAIN AND LASTED UNTIL I REACHED A GAS STATION. POWER WASHER FLUID COMPLETELY DRAINED. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS IS THE TPIM OF THE JEEP WRANGLER CAUSING THIS PROBLEM. NOT SURE IF IT IS LINKED TO A START/STOP CONDITION THE VEHICLE HAS- TURN OVER KEY IN IGNITION AND ALL POWER IS ON BUT ENGINE WILL NOT CRANK. DISENGAGE KEY, TRY AGAIN, SOMETIMES WILL START, SOMETIMES WILL TAKE A THIRD OR FOURTH TIME. HAVE BROUGHT THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF THE CHRYSLER DEALERSHIP I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE AT IN MARCH 2008. THEY CANNOT DETERMINE A CAUSE. BROUGHT TO A INDEPENDENT MECHANIC. HE INDICATED THIS WOULD BE A TPIM MALFUNCTION AND SHOULD BE REPLACED. 2007 JEEP WRANGLERS HAD A RECALL FOR THE TPIM FAILURE. I SEE THERE IS LITIGATION ONGOING FOR OTHER CHRYSLER PRODUCTS WITH TPIM ISSUES. 2008 JEEP WRANGLERS APPEAR TO HAVE FAR AND AWAY MORE ISSUES THAN OTHER NEW JK JEEP WRANGLERS... *TR

I OWN TWO JEEPS, ONE A 2007 WRANGLER UNLIMITED AND THE OTHER 2008 JEEP WRANGLER UNLIMITED. I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE TWO CLOCK SPRINGS IN THE 2007 WRANGLER AND RECENTLY THE SECOND REPLACED CLOCK SPRING IN THE 2008 WRANGLER WENT OUT. THIS IS A TOTAL OF 4 CLOCK SPRING FAILURES IN TWO JEEPS. I HAD RECEIVED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE 2007 WRANGLER AND WAS REIMBURSED. BUT NOT THE 2008 WRANGLER. CHRYSLER DID GIVE ME A PARTIAL REIMBURSEMENT ON THE FIRST CLOCK SPRING THAT FAILED IN THE 2008. ON THIS SECOND ONE, THEY ARE SAYING THEY WILL OFFER ME ANOTHER REIMBURSEMENT BUT AGAIN ONLY PARTIAL. THEY WILL NOT PAY FOR THE DIAGNOSTIC TO CONFIRM IT WAS THE CLOCK SPRING. BEING THAT I AM NOW ON MY 4TH CLOCK SPRING IN TWO JEEPS I DON'T THINK I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ANOTHER CLOCK SPRING AND GO THROUGH THE PAIN OF ANOTHER REIMBURSEMENT. THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY, THE AIRBAG LIGHT GOES ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY. THE HORN ALSO DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. I TOOK IT TO THE LOCAL MECHANIC TO HAVE THE HORN FIXED, AND WAS INFORMED IT WAS A BAD CLOCK-SPRING. CHRYSLER HAS EXTENDED THE WARRANTY FOR THE RH 2008 WRANGLERS AND ALL 2007 WRANGLERS, BUT THE WARRANTY FOR THE LH 2008 WRANGLERS, LIKE MINE, HAS NOT BEEN EXTENDED TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE AS THE HORN DOES NOT WORK, AND I AM UNSURE IF MY AIRBAG WILL DEPLOY, IF NEEDED. THERE IS CLEARLY AN ISSUE AS THERE ARE A FLOOD OF COMPLAINTS. IT IS TIME FOR THE NHTSA TO STEP IN AND GET THIS TAKEN CARE OF. I DON'T FEEL I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY $500.00 TO HAVE THE CLOCK-SPRING FIXED WHEN IT IS AN OBVIOUS ISSUE ACROSS THE LINE IN THE 2007 AND 2008 MODELS. I SHOULD ALSO MENTION THAT I HAVE ALSO EXPERIENCED THE "DEATH WOBBLE" WHICH IS WHAT WAS THE INITIAL ISSUE WHICH HAD ME TAKE THE JEEP INTO THE SHOP. OVER THIS PAST YEAR, THE JEEP WOULD JUST START SHAKING VIOLENTLY AT ABOUT 55 MPH EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. THIS LAST TIME, I PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, TURNED OFF THE JEEP AND TRIED AGAIN, ONLY TO HAVE IT START SHAKING VIOLENTLY AGAIN. THIS IS A MAJOR ISSUE THAT NEEDS ADDRESSED. I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED AS THERE WERE VEHICLES ON THE FREEWAY ALL AROUND ME. I COULD BARELY CONTROL THE VEHICLE TO PULL IT OFF THE ROAD. THE MECHANIC REPLACED THE STEERING STABILIZER, THE CALIPERS, AND THE ROTORS TO ALLEVIATE THE PROBLEM. INTERESTINGLY, WHEN I WALKED IN TO TALK TO THEM, THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS AS THEY HAVE HAD SIMILAR COMPLAINTS THAT NEEDED REPAIRS FOR THE SAME VEHICLE AND PROBLEM FROM OTHER CUSTOMERS. THIS WAS A $350.00 REPAIR. I POINT THIS SECOND ISSUE OUT SO OTHER JEEP OWNERS WILL KNOW WHAT TO HAVE REPAIRED IF CHRYSLER DOES NOTHING. *TR

Summary

ON MAY 29TH OF 2014 I WAS DRIVING MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER DOWN A 4 LANE CITY STREET AT ABOUT 3000 RPM. I HAD JUST TAKEN OFF FROM A RED LIGHT WHEN I HEARD A LOUD EXPLOSION THAT RESULTED IN A FIRE UNDERNEATH THE VEHICLE. THE GAS TANK EXPLODED AND THE FIRE COVERED THE BOTTOM OF THE ENTIRE VEHICLE. THERE WAS DAMAGE UNDER THE HOOD ON THE ENGINE SIDE OF THE FIREWALL ON WHAT APPEARED TO BE FUEL LINES. LUCKILY THERE WAS A QUICK RESPONSE BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WHO QUICKLY EXTINGUISHED THE FIRE, BUT MY JEEP HAS BEEN RENDERED UN-DRIVABLE. I HAVE CONTACTED BOTH CHRYSLER AND THE DEALERSHIP BUT NOT ASSISTANCE THERE. THE CHRYSLER INVESTIGATION TEAM WOULD NOT EVEN TAKE A LOOK AT THE FUEL LINES THE MARSHAL DETERMINED STARTED THE FIRE. I WILL NEVER FEEL SAFE IN THIS VEHICLE OR ANY OTHER VEHICLE PRODUCED BY CHRYSLER EVER AGAIN. LUCKILY THERE WAS NO PERSONAL INJURY TO ME, BUT ONLY BECAUSE I HAD ALL THE DOORS AND TOP OFF WHICH ENABLED A RAPID ESCAPE. PLEASE TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK A THESE WRANGLERS AND FORCE CHRYSLER TO TAKE ACTION BEFORE SOMEONE IS SERIOUSLY INJURED OR EVEN KILLED. *TR

Summary

I BOUGHT THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLER IN SEPTEMBER 2007. I FOLLOW THE SERVICE MANUAL AND TAKE MY JEEP FOR EVERY SCHEDULED SERVICE AT THE JEEP DEALERSHIP. MY JEEP STARTED FAILING TO START IN 2010. I REPORTED THE ISSUE AT MY 36,000 MILE SERVICE ON 23 NOVEMBER 2010 AND WAS TOLD THAT THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT COULD NOT ISOLATE THE PROBLEM. I HAVE REPORTED THIS ISSUE ON SEVERAL SERVICES BUT WAS ALWAYS TOLD THAT THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT COULD NOT ISOLATE THE ISSUE. FINALLY WHEN I TAKE THE JEEP IN FOR THE 72,000 MILE SERVICE THE FAULT WAS IDENTIFIED AND IS CURRENTLY UNDER REPAIR. IF THIS HAS BEEN A KNOWN ISSUE WHY WAS I NOT NOTIFIED OF THE PROBLEM BY JEEP. I HAVE BEEN STRANDED ON MORE THAT ONE OCCASION BECAUSE THE VEHICLE FAILED TO START AND I HAVE BEEN DRIVING AROUND FOR FOUR YEARS WITH A TIPM THAT COULD HAVE FAILED CAUSING INJURY TO ME OR MY FAMILY. I AM VERY UPSET THAT JEEP HAS KNOWN ABOUT THESE ISSUES AND I WAS NOT INFORMED THAT THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH THIS TIPM WHEN I REPORTED THE JEEP WAS HAVING ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS. I HAD TO STUMBLE ACROSS A WEB SITE REPORTING THIS ISSUE WITH THE TIPM, THIS IS HOW I FOUND OUT THAT THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT JEEP HAS FAILED TO ACKNOWLEDGE. *TR

Summary

WHEN THE IGNITION KEY WAS TURNED TO ON, THE STARTER ONLY GAVE A CLICK. AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS IT STARTED. THE DEALER DID A DIAGNOSTIC AND FOUND NOTHING. THE PROBLEM CONTINUED AND BECAME MORE FREQUENT AND SEVERE TO THE POINT IT WOULDN'T START AFTER NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS. THE STARTER WAS REPLACED WITH NO RESULTS, PROBLEM CONTINUED. FROM ONLINE FORUMS ON JEEP I FOUND THIS TO BE A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM. IT WAS SUGGESTED TO PUT THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION IN THE NEUTRAL POSITION AND TRY. IF IT STARTS, THE PROBLEM IS A FAULTY TRANSMISSION RANGE SENSOR. PUTTING IT NEUTRAL WHEN THIS OCCURS, HAS STARTED THE ENGINE THE FIRST TRY DOZENS OF TIMES FOR ME. I TOOK THE JEEP TO THE DEALER, GAVE THEM THIS INFORMATION WHICH THEY IGNORED. THEY REPLACED A SOLENOID CABLE INSTEAD. THE PROBLEM CONTINUED. RETURNED TO THE DEALER FOR ANOTHER DIAGNOSTIC, THEY KEPT THE VEHICLE FOR 2 DAYS WHILE I RENTED A VEHICLE. NOTHING WAS FOUND OR FIXED IN THEIR DIAGNOSTIC WHEN I PICKED IT UP. THE PROBLEM CONTINUES, IT DID IT TODAY TWICE 6/25/2014, BUT STILL STARTS IN NEUTRAL FOR NOW. THE SUGGESTED TRANSMISSION RANGE SENSOR WOULD BE COVERED IN MY LIFETIME POWERTRAIN WARRANTY. I BELIEVE JEEP KNOWS THERE IS A PROBLEM BUT CHOOSES TO IGNORE IT. THIS SEEMS TO EFFECT WRANGLER MODELS FROM 2007- 2012 YEARS. IT IS SO WIDESPREAD IT SHOULD BE A RECALL ISSUE. STARTING IN NEUTRAL IS NOT A FIX. *TR

I JUST TURNED MY CAR ON THAT MORNING AND MY AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON. I TOOK MY VEHICLE TO PEP BOYS AND THEY LOOKED UP ANY RECALLS FOR MY AIR BAGS. THEY FOUND A RECALL FOR THE AIR BAG CLOCKSPRING. I THEN TOOK MY WRANGLER TO THE CHRYSLER JEEP DEALERSHIP AND TOLD THEM ABOUT THE RECALL AND MY AIRBAG LIGHT. THEY SAID THAT MY VEHICLE WASN'T ON THE RECALL LIST SO IT WASN'T CONSIDERED AFFECTED. SO I PAID THEM TO DO A DIAGNOSTICS TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS AND THEY TOLD ME IT WAS THE CLOCKSPRING AND IT NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. DESPITE IT BEING THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM OTHER WRANGLERS WERE RECALLED FOR, THEY SAID THAT THEY WOULDN'T COVER THE REPAIRS AND I WOULD HAVE TO PAY OVER $600 DOLLARS FOR THEM TO REPLACE IT. MY CAR HAD LESS THAN 65,000 MILES ON IT WHEN THIS PROBLEM OCCURRED. I HAVE LOOKED ONLINE AND THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT MANY 2008 AND LATER WRANGLERS HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERN AND THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL TO HAVE THIS FIXED. *TR

THE DEATH WOBBLE JUST STARTED ABOUT TWO MONTHS AGO WHEN APPLYING BRAKES OVER 55 MPH. MOSTLY FRONT-END WOBBLE. IT HAPPENED SPORADICALLY AND ONLY AT SPEEDS AROUND 60 MPH. I TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC AND HE REPLACED THE ROTORS. JUST A FEW DAYS LATER, THE WOBBLE RETURNED, BUT MUCH WORSE, AND WITH NO BRAKING APPLIED. THE WHOLE CAR VIOLENTLY SHOOK. I RETURNED THE VEHICLE BACK TO MY MECHANIC. HE DID SOME RESEARCH AND EVENTUALLY INSTALLED A NEW STEERING DAMPER, A BIGGER ONE THAN THE ORIGINAL PART. I AM HOPEFUL THE PROBLEM WILL BE FIXED. IN RESEARCHING THIS MATTER AND REVIEWING THE VARIOUS BLOGS, INCLUDING THIS SITE, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT CHRYSLER JEEP IS NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT. WHILE THERE HAS BEEN NO REPORTS OF DEATH, THAT IS JUST FORTUITOUS. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT IT. NOT A COINCIDENCE THAT SO MANY OPERATORS ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE SAME MODEL. *TR

AIRBAG SENSOR LIGHT CAME ON. TOOK VEHICLE IN AND WAS TOLD IT IS THE AIRBAG CLOCK SPRING. THERE HAVE BEEN RECALLS ON RIGHT SIDE DRIVER INSTALLS, WHICH MINE IS NOT. HOWEVER, THERE ARE NUMEROUS REPORTS THAT LEFT SIDE DRIVER INSTALL IS DEFECTIVE AS WELL. CHRYSLER HAS GIVEN ASSISTANCE TO SOME CUSTOMERS IN REPLACING THE PART THAT WERE NOT UNDER THE RECALL, BUT REFUSED TO ASSIST ME. IT IS A WELL KNOWN DEFECT AND I BELIEVE CHRYSLER SHOULD BE FORCED TO RECALL THE PART ON ALL JEEP WRANGLERS, ESPECIALLY ADMITTEDLY KNOWING THE PROBLEM AND ASSISTING SOME PEOPLE WITH PART REPLACEMENT BUT NOT OTHERS. *TT

IN NHTSA ACTION NUMBER :PE11019 DATE :APRIL 15, 2014 AT 01:39 PM CHRYSLER INFORMED ODI THAT IT INTENDS TO INITIATE A CONSUMER SATISFACTION CAMPAIGN FOR MY2007 LHD WRANGLER WHICH WILL EXTEND THE CS WARRANTY COVERAGE FOR 10 YEARS OR 150,000 MILES. ACCORDINGLY THE INVESTIGATION WAS CLOSED. THE AIR BAG WARNING IN MY JEEP KEEP WAS COMING ON AND OFF; I BROUGHT IT TO THE DEALER, WHO DETERMINED THAT THE CLOCK SPRING WAS DEFECTIVE AND THAT IT NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE REPAIR COST OVER $750; THE DEALER INFORMED ME THAT DESPITE CHRYSLER REPRESENTING TO THE NHTSA THAT IT WOULD EXTEND THE CS WARRANTY COVERAGE FOR 10 YEARS AND 150,000 MILES (AND SECURING CLOSURE OF THE INVESTIGATION), CHRYSLER WAS NOT PROVIDING THE WARRANTY COVERAGE IT PROMISED. PLEASE INVESTIGATE/INQUIRE WHY CHRYSLER IS NOT DOING SO! THANK YOU. *TT

Summary

THE CLOCKSPRING ON MY 2008 LEFT HAND DRIVE JEEP HAS BROKEN CAUSING MY AIRBAGS TO NO LONGER FUNCTION. I HAVE A VALID CHRYSLER WARRANTY UNTIL 85,000 MILES. MY JEEP IS CURRENTLY BEING SERVICED AT THE DEALERSHIP TO REPLACE THE BROKEN CLOCKSPRING WHICH WILL COST $563. THIS PART IS NOT COVERED UNDER MY CHRYSLER WARRANTY WHICH MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL. MY WARRANTY COVERS ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS BUT THE CLOCK SPRING FALLS UNDER "SAFETY" COMPONENTS WHICH ARE NOT COVERED. HOW SAFETY COMPONENTS ARE NOT COVERED IS WAY BEYOND ME! THERE WAS A RECALL IN THE 2007 JEEP WRANGLER CLOCKSPRING AND THE ISSUES OBVIOUSLY SPREAD TO 2008 AS WELL. I CANNOT AFFORD THE $563 SO I AM PUTTING IT ON MY CREDIT CARD SO I CAN DRIVE A SAFE JEEP. THE FACT THAT JEEP IS MAKING CONSUMERS PAY (SUBSTANTIALLY) FOR THEIR NEGLIGENCE IS COMPLETELY UNFAIR AND THUS THE REASON FOR THIS COMPLAINT. *TR

Summary

ON THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DASHBOARD, THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT FLASHES STAYS ON STEADY WITH A CHIME, AN INDICATION THAT THERE IS SOMETHING MALFUNCTIONING OR INTERFERING WITH THE VEHICLE'S AIRBAGS.THIS HAS BEEN A RECURRING ISSUE AND CONCERN FOR MANY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) OWNERS, INCLUDING MYSELF, AND HAS BEEN SHOWN TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO BE CAUSED BY A FAULTY CLOCKSPRING WITHIN THE VEHICLE'S STEERING WHEEL. THIS FAULTY CLOCKSPRING IS THE CULPRIT FOR POTENTIAL AIRBAG FAILURE IN THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DURING AN ACCIDENT OR PREMATURE DEPLOYMENT WHEN SIMPLY DRIVING AROUND. DAIMLER CHRYSLER HAS REFUSED TO ADDRESS THE SAFETY CONCERN OF THEIR FAULTY CLOCKSPRING THAT CAN CAUSE FAILURE OF THE VEHICLE'S AIRBAGS FROM PROPERLY DEPLOYING. *TR

Summary

DRIVING HOME ON A SATURDAY EVENING ACCELERATING UP TO 55 MPH ONCE THE VEHICLE HIT 48-50 MPH THE FRONT END BEGAN TO SHAKE/VIBRATE VIOLENTLY SLOWING DOWN DID NOT STOP THE VIBRATIONS I NEEDED TO PULL OFF THE ROAD AND COME TO A COMPLETE STOP. THE ABOVE REPEATED 3-4 TIMES DURING THE COURSE OF THE TRIP. TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALERSHIP THE FOLLOWING MONDAY AND WAS TOLD BY THE DEALERSHIP THAT I EXPERIENCED THE "DEATH WOBBLE" THEY REPLACED THE STEERING DAMPER AND ROTATED THE TIRES. I HAVE DRIVEN APPROXIMATELY 1,000 MILES SINCE THAT SERVICE APPOINTMENT AND AM NOW EXPERIENCING THE "DEATH WOBBLE" AGAIN, I AM ALREADY OUT $1,200 FOR THE INITIAL REPAIR ATTEMPT. THE STEERING DAMPER REPLACEMENT APPEARS TO HAVE ONLY MASKED THE PROBLEM FOR A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME AND IS NOT A FIX BUT A PATCH JOB WHICH IS LIKELY RESULTING IN FURTHER DAMAGE TO OTHER PORTIONS OF THE STEERING/SUSPENSION SYSTEM. THERE ARE SEVERAL REPORTS OF THIS BOTH IN YOUR SYSTEM AND THROUGHOUT THE INTERNET SOMETHING IS CLEARLY WRONG WITH THESE VEHICLES AND IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. THE COMPLETE LOSS OF VEHICLE STEERING CONTROL DURING THE SHAKING IS GOING TO GET SOMEONE KILLED AND IT SEEMS LIKE THAT IS WHAT ALL THE REGULATORS ARE WAITING FOR BEFORE TAKING ANY ACTION TO GET THIS ISSUE FIXED. *TR

Summary

THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT CAME ON IN MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER. I CONTACTED JEEP AND FOUND THE PROBLEM IS NOT COVERED BY MY BASIC WARRANTY ANY LONGER. SO I WENT ON LINE TO SEE IF I COULD FIX IT MYSELF. I DISCOVERED THAT THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM IS A DEFECTIVE CLOCK SPRING IN THE STEERING COLUMN. BY READING JEEP FORUMS I DISCOVERED THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM IN THE 2008 JEEP AND IN FACT AN EXTENDED WARRANTY WAS REQUIRED OF JEEP IN THE RIGHT HAND DRIVE VERSIONS OF THE VEHICLE. THE APPARENT JUSTIFICATION TO EXCLUDE THE LEFT HAD DRIVE VEHICLES IS THAT MAIL CARRIERS USING THE RIGHT HAND VERSION USE THE JEEP WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN ALLOWING DIRT TO ENTER THE VEHICLE. I REMIND YOU THAT THE JEEP IS MARKED TO FOLKS WHO WILL MOST LIKELY DRIVE THE THING OFF ROAD MEANING GRAVEL OR DIRT ROADS. WHERE I LIVE IN A DESERT REGION OF WYOMING THE DIRT ROADS ARE USUALLY COVERED IN FLOUR LIKE DUST SO DIRT GETS EVERYWHERE. I SUSPECT THE REAL REASON FOR ALLOWING CHRYSLER OFF THE HOOK IS THE COST INVOLVED TO WARRANTY THE REST OF THE VEHICLES. IF THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM IS A DESIGN DEFECT THEN ALL OF THOSE VEHICLES WHO ACTUALLY HAVE THE PROBLEM NEED THE EXTENDED WARRANTY. IF LEFT HAND DRIVE VEHICLES DON?T HAVE THE PROBLEM THEN PEOPLE WON?T BE ASKING FOR REPAIR. IT COST AROUND $500 FOR THIS REPAIR WHICH MANY PEOPLE MAY NEGLECT CAUSING THEIR DEATH. WHY ARE MAIL CARRIER LIVES MORE VALUABLE THAN THE REST OF US? PLEASE RECONSIDER THE DECISION TO DISREGARD THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF THE MAJORITY OF JEEP OWNERS WHO HAVE LEFT HAND DRIVE VEHICLES AT LEAST IN THIS COUNTRY. I SUSPECT THE DEFECTIVE PART IS DEFECTIVE NO MATTER WHAT SIDE OF THE VEHICLE IT IS INSTALLED ON. *TR

THIS SEEMS TO BE A FAULTY CLOCKSPRING, WHICH LEADS TO A FAULTY AIRBAG. THIS SHOULD BE COVERED UNDER THE EXTENDED 10 YEAR/150,000 MILE WARRANTY THAT COVERS THE 2007 LHD AND 2008 RHD JEEP WRANGLERS. WHETHER THE STEERING IS ON THE RIGHT OR LEFT SIDE OF A VEHICLE SHOULD NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE WHEN IT COMES TO DRIVER SAFETY. *TR

MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER HAS DEVELOPED A TERRIBLE VIBRATION WHEN I HIT ROAD BUMPS AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. THE WHOLE JEEP BEGINS TO VIBRATE TO THE POINT I HAVE TO PULLOVER AND STOP THE VEHICLE TO GAIN CONTROL. I INSTALLED NEW TIRES AND IT IS STILL OCCURRING. I HAVE REPORTED THIS TO CHRYSLER CORP CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPT THEY ADVISED ME TO TAKE IT TO A DEALER TO DOCUMENT THE PROBLEM. THIS ISSUE BEGAN AT 50000 MILES. I REPLACED THE TIRES AND IT WENT AWAY IT HAS STATED AGAIN NOW AND REPLACING THE TIRES HAS NOT FIXED IT I AM VERY CONCERNED THAT CHRYSLER IS IGNORING THIS PROBLEM AS JEEP OWNERS KNOW ABOUT WHAT THEY CALL THE "DEATH WOBBLE" . I EXPECT THAT YOU WILL FOLLOW UP ON THIS AS IT IS TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE OF CHRYSLER TO CONTINUE TO SELL JEEPS THAT THEY KNOW HAVE DEFECTIVE PARTS.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER AT SPEEDS OF 50 MPH OR GREATER AND HITTING A POTHOLE, SMALL BUMP, OR WHEN CROSSING A BRIDGE, THE WRANGLER SUDDENLY SHAKES VIOLENTLY. IT BECOMES VERY DIFFICULT TO STEER, AND MUST COME TO A COMPLETE STOP IN ORDER TO STOP THE SHAKING. THIS OCCURRED MORE THAN 20 TIMES IN A 4 HOUR PERIOD. ONE INCIDENT ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT, AS I TRIED TO SLOW DOWN AND PULL OVER IN BUSY CITY TRAFFIC WITH A VERY SMALL BERM. I CONTINUED MY DRIVE AT SPEEDS OF 40 MPH OR LESS, WHICH REDUCED THE NUMBER OF INCIDENTS, BUT IT STILL HAPPENED. I WAS FEARFUL TO MOVE QUICKLY, BE IN FRONT OF OTHER CARS OR HIT POTHOLES, SO DRIVING WAS STRESSFUL AND SLOW. I MAINTAIN THE VEHICLE REGULARLY, AND HAVE REPLACED THE TIRES. THIS HAS HAPPENED BEFORE, BUT TODAY WAS SO OFTEN, IT WAS DIFFICULT TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE. I LOVE MY JEEP, BUT AM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. I AM NOW CONSIDERING PURCHASING A NEW VEHICLE. *TR

I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY AND ALL OF A SUDDEN MY AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON. DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON SO I PULLED OVER. I THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS JUST A ONE TIME THING BUT I TRAVELED OVER 1000 MILES WITH IT DINGING EVERY LITTLE WHILE. WHEN I GOT TO MY DESTINATION THE LIGHT WAS STILL COMING ON AND I WAS TOLD IT WAS A SPRING AND WOULD COST 400.00 TO 500.00 TO FIX. I FEEL THAT IT IS NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY TO FIX SINCE IT IS A SAFETY ISSUE. BUT NOT ONLY THAT I ALSO HAD TO GET THE BALL JOINTS REPLACED, BOTH UPPER AND LOWER WHICH COST OVER 1000.00. I WAS TOLD BY THE MECHANIC THAT JEEP DOES NOT PUT GREASE FITTINGS ON THEM SO THAT THEY EVENTUALLY GO OUT. THIS COULD CAUSE A VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT AND THESE ISSUES NEED TO BE RESOLVED BY THE COMPANY BEFORE SOMEONE GET HURT OR WORSE KILLED. I LOVE MY JEEP BUT ALL THESE ISSUES ARE REALLY DISTURBING. ONE OTHER ISSUE I NOTICED IS I AM ALWAYS HAVING TO CHECK THE OIL WHICH IS USUALLY LOW. NOT SURE WHAT THAT IS BUT I KNOW OTHERS HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT THIS. *TR

AT 65 MPH AFTER HITTING A COUPLE OF NORMAL BUMPS WHERE BRIDGE SURFACE MEETS THE INTERSTATE, THE FRONT END SHOOK SO VIOLENTLY THAT IT FELT LIKE BODY WOULD SEPARATE FROM THE FRAME. THIS IS NO SUBTLE "SHIMMY OR VIBRATION" IT MAKES YOU JUMP ON THE BRAKES AND HOPE THAT THE 18 WHEELER BEHIND YOU DOES NOT RUN OVER YOU. I THINK THE CENTER LANE COULD BE DEADLY WHEN IT OCCURS, BECAUSE YOU CAN NOT FIND THE BERM FAST ENOUGH. IT GOES AWAY UNTIL THE NEXT TIME. HAD STEERING STABILIZER UP SIZED, BUT TO NO AVAIL. IT HAS HAPPENED TWICE ON HIGHWAY SINCE FIRST INCIDENT. IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL WE HEAR ABOUT FATALITIES. I AM LOOKING INTO LARGER SHOCK ABSORBERS AS MY MECHANIC SAYS THEY ARE PROBABLY UNDER SIZED FOR THE TIRES. I AM GRATEFUL MY DAUGHTER WAS NOT DRIVING IT AT THE TIME. AS A RETIRED FIREFIGHTER IT TAKES A LOT TO IMPRESS ME WHEN IT COMES TO DANGEROUS SITUATIONS. THIS IS GOING TO KILL SOMEONE IF IT HAS NOT ALREADY TAKEN LIVES. *TR

MY AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON ALONG WITH A CHIME. NOW THE LIGHT AND CHIME HAPPEN INTERMITTENTLY. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME FOR THIS ISSUE ON MY JEEP. THE FIRST TIME I BROUGHT IT TO A DEALER AND THEY REPLACED THE CLOCKSPRING AT A COST OF OVER $400.00. THIS PART IS ESSENTIAL TO THE SAFETY OF MYSELF AND MY PASSENGERS AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AGAIN. MEANWHILE, THE RHD AND 2007 WRANGLERS HAVE HAD A RECALL ISSUED FOR THIS ISSUE. WELL, I LIVE IN A DUSTY PART OF THE COUNTRY AND IN THE SUMMER DRIVE WITH THE WINDOW DOWN A LOT, JUST AS THE MAIL CARRIERS WITH THE RHD JEEPS DO. I ACTUALLY PURCHASED MY JEEP IN NOVEMBER OF 2007. IT IS A 2008 MY BUT WAS MADE IN 2007, IMMEDIATELY AFTER THOSE 2007 LHD JEEPS THAT RECEIVED THE RECALL. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THIS RECALL WAS NOT EXPANDED TO COVER ALL WRANGLERS THAT IT AFFECTS. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ THE AIR BAGS WILL NOT OPERATE PROPERLY WHEN THIS ISSUE IS PRESENT. THEY COULD NOT DEPLOY WHEN NECESSARY AND/OR DEPLOY WHEN NOT NECESSARY. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR ME TO HAVE THIS CONDITION IN MY VEHICLE PUTTING ANY PASSENGERS AT RISK. I WILL BE HAVING IT REPLACED EITHER WAY, AGAIN. *TR

AT TIMES (1 OUT OF 3) THE STARTER CLICKS BUT CAR DOES NOT START (JIGGLING GEAR SHIFT FIXES THE PROBLEM) I HAVE READ PAGES AND PAGES OF SIMILAR POSTS OF PROBLEMS WITH OTHER 2008 WRANGLERS. ALL COMPLAINTS ARE THE SAME. I HAD THE STARTER REPLACED FOR $400+ AND THAT DID NOT FIX THE ISSUE. I WANT THIS RESOLVED NOW. I CURRENTLY HAVE A JEEP CHEROKEE AND A TOWN AND COUNTRY AS WELL.

MY WIFE WAS LEAVING WORK, AS SHE STARTED TO DRIVE AWAY IN OUR JEEP WRANGLER THE AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON AND CHIMED. IT HAS CONTINUED TO DO SO, INTERMITTENTLY, EVER SINCE THEN. I WAS WORKING OUT OF TOWN AT THE TIME WHEN I RECEIVED A CALL FROM HER. SHE WAS CONCERNED THAT THE AIRBAG MAY DEPLOY UNEXPECTEDLY OR WORSE, NOT WORK IF SHE WERE TO GET INTO A WRECK. I WAS ABLE TO DO A SIMPLE GOOGLE SEARCH AND FIND MANY JEEP WRANGLER OWNERS WITH THE SAME ISSUE, A FAULTY CLOCK SPRING. FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN, THE 2007 JEEP WRANGLERS HAVE AN EXTENDED FACTORY WARRANTY TO COVER THIS ISSUE. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR MY WIFE AND MYSELF, WE ARE NOT FINANCIALLY ABLE TO PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR WHAT I'M TOLD IS ABOUT A $500 REPAIR FOR OUR 2008 WRANGLER. I AM MORE THEN WILLING TO REPAIR OR PAY FOR REPAIRS OF ITEMS THAT WEAR OUT OR NEED TO BE REPLACED WHILE OWNING AND MAINTAINING A VEHICLE. HOWEVER, REPLACING A CLOCK SPRING TO HELP MAINTAIN THE FUNCTIONALITY OF MY VEHICLES AIRBAG SYSTEM IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS COMMONLY EVER REPLACED. THE AMOUNT OF JEEP WRANGLER OWNERS THAT HAVE COME TO THE INTERNET TO VOICE THEIR CONCERN ON THE MATTER MAKES IT APPARENT TO ME THAT THIS IS EITHER A SUB-PAR PART OR DESIGN FLAW AND CHRYSLER/JEEP SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.

Summary

AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT CAME ON AND OFF THEN CAME ON AND STAYS ON MOST OF THE TIME. WARNING BEEP SOUNDS EVERY TIME I TURN A CORNER. TOOK IT TO A JEEP DEALER AND HE SAID IT WAS THE CLOCK SPRING AND WOULD COST $480.00 TO REPLACE IT. I READ ON A JEEP OWNERS FORUM THAT 2007 JEEPS HAD WARRANTY EXTENDED TO COVER THIS. SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF 2008 JEEP OWNERS ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM, BUT CHRYSLER IS UNWILLING TO EXTEND THE WARRANTY FOR US. *JB

Summary

AUGUST 29 2013, MY AIRBAG LIGHT TURNED ON AND CHIMED CONTINUOUSLY ON MY WAY TO WORK. THINKING THIS MAY HAVE BEEN A FLUKE, I DROVE IT FOR ANOTHER 24 HOURS TO SEE IF IT WOULD CORRECT ITSELF. NOW, OVER 24 HOURS LATER, THE PROBLEM CONTINUES TO PERSIST. THE DEALERSHIP IN MY AREA CLAIMED TO BE BACKED UP FOR THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO AND DID NOT GIVE ME REASON AS TO WHY THIS MIGHT BE HAPPENING. AFTER SEARCHING THE PROBLEM ON BOTH THE TSB AND OPEN FORUMS, I FOUND THAT THE CAUSE IS THE CLOCKSPRING IN MOST JK'S. I HAVE ALSO FOUND THAT THE WARRANTY FOR THE CLOCKSPRING ON THE 2007 JK HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO 10 YEARS/150,000MILES. ALSO, THE (2008-2012 RIGHT HAND DRIVES) HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED AS HAVING CLOCKSPRING PROBLEMS. I DRIVE A 2008 JK ALONG WITH MANY OTHERS THAT ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND MAY CAUSE A NON-DEPLOYED AIR BAG WHEN AN AIR BAG IS NEEDE. PLEASE HELP RESOLVE THIS ISSUE. THANK YOU.

Summary

POWERFUL SHAKING OF THE STEERING WHEEL AND FRONT WHEELS AFTER A HITTING A ROAD BUMP AT ABOUT 50 MPH. THE SHAKING CONTINUED AS I LET OFF THE GAS AND TRIED TO GET TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. IT TOOK TWO OF US GRASPING THE STEERING WHEEL TO GET IT OFF THE ROAD. IF I HAD NOT BEEN IN THE SLOW LANE TO BEGIN WITH, I MOST LIKELY WOULD HAVE HAD A SERIOUS ACCIDENT. AFTER DOING SOME ON-LINE RESEARCHING, I HAVE FOUND THIS PROBLEM IS CALLED "THE DEATH WOBBLE" AND CHRYSLER IS WELL AWARE OF IT. I TOOK THE VEHICLE IMMEDIATELY TO THE DEALER WHO TOLD ME MY TIRES NEEDED TO BE BALANCED AND PROCEEDED TO DO SO. I WASN'T MORE THAN A MILE AWAY FROM THE DEALER WHEN I HIT A SMALL BUMP AND THE WOBBLE WAS BACK. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE AND NEEDS TO BE LOOKED INTO BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED. I AM TERRIFIED TO GET BACK BEHIND THE WHEEL OF THIS WRANGLER. *TT

WHILE DRIVING 45MPH AND MAKING A SLIGHT BEND TO THE LEFT OR RIGHT, THE VEHICLE ENCOUNTERED A SLIGHT BUMP AND THE STEERING WHEEL STARTED SHAKING VIOLENTLY. I HAD TO BRING THE VEHICLE TO A COMPLETE STOP ALONG THE SIDE OF THE ROAD IN ORDER TO GET THE SHAKING TO STOP. THIS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES DURING THIS TRIP. THE VEHICLE WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO CONTROL ONCE THE SHAKING STARTED. IT FELT AS THOUGH THE ENTIRE VEHICLE WOULD JUST SHAKE APART. THERE IS ALSO A CLICKING FEELING THAT CAN BE FELT IN THE STEERING ONCE THE VEHICLE WARMS UP AND IS DRIVEN BETWEEN 5 TO 10 MILES. THE STEERING ACTUALLY FEELS MORE LOOSE ONCE THIS WARMED UP CONDITION IS MET. THE CLICK IS FELT GOING OVER ANY TYPE OF BUMP IN THE ROAD OR EVEN WHEN SITTING STILL AND THE STEERING WHEEL IS MOVED BACK AND FORTH, (LEFT TO RIGHT). *TR

TODAY I WAS INFORMED BY MY DEALER THAT IS WAS A FAULTY CLOCK SPRING WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT CAUSE THE AIRBAG NOT TO DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT AND IT MAY OR MAY NOT DEPLOY WITHOUT PROVOCATION. UPON RESEARCH THIS IS A WIDESPREAD ISSUE WITH THIS PARTICULAR MODEL JEEP AND CLEARLY IS A SAFETY HAZARD. THERE SHOULD BE A FORCED SAFETY RECALL ON THIS PART. *TR

Summary

DURING STATE VEHICLE INSPECTION LOCAL GARAGE DISCOVERED THAT THE FRONT DRIVER'S SIDE BRAKE LINE HAD BEEN WORN THROUGH FROM THE FRONT TIRE RUBBING ON IT WHEN WHEELS TURNED TO THE LEFT. GARAGE SUGGESTED CHECKING WITH JEEP DEALERSHIP TO SEE IF A RECALL WAS IN AFFECT. TOOK VEHICLE TO JEEP DEALERSHIP WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED AND SERVICE MANAGER SAID NO RECALL WAS IN AFFECT HOWEVER JEEP HAD PUBLISHED A SERVICE BULLETIN FOR THIS ISSUE AND RE-DESIGNED THE BRAKE LINES AFFECTED. THE SERVICE MANAGER SAID THE ISSUE WAS FROM ROAD MOISTURE/DEBRIS SEEPING THROUGH THE RUBBER BOOTS COVERING THE BRAKE LINE FITTINGS WHICH CAUSED EXCESS CORROSION TO BUILD WITHIN THE RUBBER BOOTS TRIGGERING THE BOOTS TO "SWELL" CAUSING THE CONTACT WITH THE TIRE. THERE WAS AN INFERENCE MADE BY THE SERVICE MANAGER THAT THE VEHICLE'S TIRES MAY HAVE ATTRIBUTED TO THIS FROM THEIR TREAD DESIGN HOWEVER THE TIRE SIZE MATCHES THE MANUFACTURER SPECS ON THE LABEL INSIDE THE DOOR JAM. APPEARS TO BE A FAULTY DESIGN OF THE ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER BRAKE LINES. *TR

MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER SAHARA JUST STARTED BLARING THE HORN OUT OF NOWHERE WHILE I WAS DRIVING. MANY PEOPLE SLOWED DOWN TO GET OUT OF MY WAY, TRAFFIC PATTERNS CHANGED NEAR ME AND ALMOST CAUSED A FEW ACCIDENTS AS EVERYONE LOOKED TO SEE WHO WAS LAYING ON THEIR HORN. THE HORN HAD A CONSTANT HONK UNTIL I PULLED OUT THE FUSES TO DISCONNECT IT. MY AIRBAG LIGHT TURNED ON AND I HAVE NO IDEA IF THE AIRBAG IS WORKING. I REPLACED THE FUSES AND THE HORN DID NOT HONK AGAIN FOR A WHILE UNTIL ONE NIGHT, ABOUT A WEEK LATER, AT ABOUT 2:00 AM MY JEEP WOKE MY ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH ITS BLARING HORN AS I RACED TO PULL MY FUSES OUT AGAIN. I LOOKED UP THE POSSIBLE CAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM AND FOUND MANY JEEP FORUMS DEDICATED TO THE FAULTY "CLOCK SPRINGS" IN THE STEERING COLUMNS THAT CREATE THESE HAZARDOUS SITUATIONS. *TR

Summary

"DEATH WOBBLE". I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING THIS PROBLEM FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS AND HAVE PAID OVER $5,000 TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM. BECAUSE SHEEHY CHRYSLER JEEP IN MD WENT OUT OF BUSINESS, I HAD TO TAKE MY JEEP TO ANOTHER DEALERSHIP, I CHOSE LEITH CHRYSLER IN RALEIGH, NC) . JUST GOT MY VEHICLE OUT OF THE SHOP, LEITH CHRYSLER JEEP $2,374.43 I PAID. AFTER 245 MILES (FROM RALEIGH TO WASHINGTON, DC), THE VIOLENT VIBRATIONS/SHAKING STARTED AGAIN. CALL THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY ADVISED ME TO TAKE JEEP TO LOCAL CHRYSLER JEEP DEALERSHIP, WARRANTY ON THE REPAIRS 12,000 MILES TO 24 MONTHS. TOOK THE JEEP TO DARCARS MARLOW HEIGHTS, THEY WOULD NOT ACCEPT THE OTHER CHRYSLER JEEP DEALERS REPAIRS BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY USED AFTERMARKET PARTS. I CALLED THE CHRYSLER CORPORATE OFFICE AND FILED A COMPLAINT (CASE # 23448465) WHICH WAS USELESS, THEY SAID THEY COULD NOT MAKE ANOTHER CHRYSLER FRANCHISE WARRANTY THE REPAIRS (THE CORPORATE OFFICE WAS USELESS). I PAID AND ADDITIONAL $270.00 WHICH LEITH COMPLAINED TO THE DEALERSHIP WANTING TO KNOW WHY THEY CHARGED SO MUCH AFTER THEY UPS??ED THE REPLACEMENT PART TO THEM. AFTER PAYING THE MONEY AND GETTING JEEP BACK. I DROVE BACK TO RALEIGH, DROVE OVER THE HIGHWAY DIVIDER ON THE EXIT TO GET ON I40 AND THE VIBRATION STARTED AGAIN. THIS CAN NOT CONTINUE TO GO ON!!! AN INVESTIGATION NEEDS TO BE DONE TO OFFICIALLY PROVE THAT THIS ??DEATH WOBBLE?? IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM AND CHRYSLER NEEDS TO BE FORCED TO RECALL THE VEHICLES AND PERMANENTLY FIX THE PROBLEM, OR BUY BACK THEIR POOR DESIGNED JEEP WRANGLER. I HAVE OWNED 2 OTHER JEEP WRANGLERS BEFORE THIS ONE, AND HAVE NEVER HAD THE PROBLEMS I HAVE WITH MY CURRENT JEEP. *TR

Summary

I WAS TRAVELING DOWN THE HIGHWAY AND WAS COMING UP TO A STOP LIGHT AND THE VEHICLE DIED OUT. I WAS ABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE STARTED AND SHORTLY AFTER THAT, I WAS TRAVELING DOWN THE HIGHWAY AGAIN AND WHILE I WAS SPEEDING UP TO ABOUT 55 MPH THE VEHICLE SHUT DOWN AGAIN AND I WAS BARELY ABLE TO GET AWAY FROM THE TRAFFIC AROUND ME AND GET THE VEHICLE PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROADWAY. I ATTEMPTED RESTARTED THE VEHICLE AND IT COULD NOT GET THE VEHICLE TO RESTART, LUCKILY I WORK ON VEHICLES MYSELF AND DETERMINED THAT THE PROBLEM WAS A FUEL PUMP ISSUE. I TAPPED ON THE FUEL TANK, GOT THE VEHICLE STARTED AND WAS ABLE TO DRIVE ME AND MY FAMILY ALL THE WAY BACK HOME, BUT THE VEHICLE WAS DRIVING ROUGH AND NO LIGHTS CAME ON INDICATING I HAD A PROBLEM, BEFORE OR AFTER. I WILL GET THE VEHICLE TESTED ON TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAVE CAUSED IT. AFTER READING A GREAT NUMBER OF THESE COMPLAINTS, THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO POINT AT AND IS CLEARLY INDICATING IT IS THE FUEL PUMP!! WE WERE VERY LUCKY THAT THE VEHICLE DIDN'T EXPLODE BECAUSE THE FUEL PUMP WIRES HAVE A TENDENCY TO MELTED ON THE FUEL PUMP. I DOUBT FORD WOULD PAY FOR THIS FUEL PUMP FAILURE IT SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WHEN YOU LOOK ON-LINE. *TR

Summary

ON 5/15/13 I PURCHASED A 2008 JEEP WRANGLER X FROM WALSER SUBARU IN BURNSVILLE MN. AT APPROXIMATELY 8:50PM I WAS HEADING HOME FROM COMPLETING THE TRANSACTION WITH THE DEALER. I WAS ON I-35W NORTH GOING AROUND A LONG EASY LEFT CORNER IN THE ROAD WHEN I HIT A ROUGH AREA IN THE HIGHWAY. THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY AND THE STEERING WHEEL WAS SHAKING HARD LEFT AND RIGHT. I IMMEDIATELY GRASPED THE WHEEL AS FIRMLY AS POSSIBLE AND SLOWED THE VEHICLE TO APPROXIMATELY 45 MILES AN HOUR BEFORE THE SHAKING STOPPED. I IMMEDIATELY TOOK THE NEXT EXIT AND INSPECTED THE TIRES AND WHEELS THINKING I HAD A FLAT OR A LOOSE WHEEL. I CONTINUED TO DRIVE HOME WITH NO OTHER OCCURRENCE OF THE INCIDENT. THIS MORNING 5/16/2013 AT APPROXIMATELY 7:40AM I WAS ON MY WAY TO WORK AND HAD JUST MERGED OFF OF I-35W SOUTH TO 280 SOUTH. I AGAIN WAS IN A SLIGHT BEND IN THE ROAD THIS TIME TO THE RIGHT AND HIT A ROUGH AREA OF ROADWAY. I WAS TRAVELING AT APPROXIMATELY 60 MILES AN HOUR WHEN AGAIN THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY AND I HAD TO GRASP THE WHEEL FIRMLY AND SLOW UNTIL THE SHAKING SUBSIDED. I'VE CONTACTED THE DEALER AND THE VEHICLE IS GOING IN FOR INSPECTION AT WALSER CHRYSLER JEEP IN HOPKINS MN AT 1:45PM 5/16/13. I ALSO DID A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF RESEARCH ONLINE TODAY AFTER THE SECOND EVENT AND IT APPEARS THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM ON 2007-2013 JEEP WRANGLER JK MODELS. IT IS MOST COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS "DEATH WOBBLE" THIS APPEARS TO BE A WIDE SPREAD AND VERY DANGEROUS FLAW IN THE JEEP JK DESIGN AND ONE THAT NEEDS TO BE CAREFULLY INVESTIGATED FOR SAFETY OF ALL THOSE ON THE PUBLIC ROADWAYS.

I HAVE A 2008 JEEP WRANGLER THAT WAS MANUFACTURED IN 2007. THE CLOCK SPRING WAS DIAGNOSED BY THE DEALER AS BEING DEFECTIVE. THIS WILL PREVENT THE DRIVER AIRBAG FROM DEPLOYING IN AN ACCIDENT. I HAVE READ THAT THE 2007 MODEL YEAR CLOCK SPRINGS WERE RECALLED BUT NOT THE 2008. I HAVE READ ON SEVERAL FORUMS THAT THE 2008 MODELS ARE AFFECTED WITH THIS PROBLEM ESPECIALLY THE EARLY MODELS. I AM NOT SURE HOW MANY COMPLAINTS YOU HAVE HAD ABOUT THIS ISSUE BUT THIS SHOULD BE HANDLED IN A RECALL OR OTHER WAY THAT THE OWNER IS OUT OF POCKET $500 FOR A SAFETY REPAIR THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF AS AN ISSUE. I HAVE CONTACTED CHRYSLER CARE AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY WOULD NOT COVER THIS ISSUE. I HAVE HEARD THAT CHRYSLER HAS EXTENDED THE WARRANTY ON THIS PART TO 100K MILES OR SO.. BUT I'M TOLD THAT NOT MY VEHICLE. THIS IS A KNOWS SAFETY ISSUE AND SHOULD BE HANDLED UNDER A WARRANTY SITUATION. *TR

Summary

GAS CAP SENSOR LIGHT ON. WHEN FILLING THE TANK WITH GAS, THE AUTOMATIC SHUT OFF AT THE PUMP CLICKS OFF, THEN WITHIN 5/10 SECONDS THE GAS STARTS TO SURGE OUT OF THE TANK ALL DOWN THE JEEP, OVER THE GROUND, OVER ME. THE GAS TANK AND ASSEMBLY WAS REPLACED 3 TIMES IN 2011 WHILE STILL UNDER WARRANTY BECAUSE THE PROBLEM KEPT COMING BACK. THE SAME PROBLEM STARTED AGAIN 2013. WE CALLED THE DEALER AND FOUND THAT IT IS COVERED UNDER AN UNLIMITED MILES UNLIMITED MONTHS EXTENDED WARRANTY. GLAD WE CALLED BECAUSE WE DIDN'T GET ANY NOTICE OF THIS EXTENDED COVERAGE IN THE MAIL. A SEPARATE ISSUE BEGAN IN 2012 WITH SOME LEAKAGE OF GAS UNDER THE VEHICLE AND AN ODOR OF GAS OUTSIDE THE CAR IF THE TANK WAS FILLED UP ALL THE WAY. SINCE THE WARRANTY HAD EXPIRED, OUR PERSONAL MECHANIC HANDLED IT. HE REPLACED A HOSE THAT WAS ATTACHED TO THE FUEL TANK (THE SAME GAS CAP SENSOR LIGHT WAS ON FOR THIS PROBLEM TOO). HE ALSO TIGHTENED THE FUEL PUMP AT THE TANK WHERE THE GAS WAS LEAKING FROM AND HE FOUND A CRACK IN THE TANK WHICH HE PATCHED. THIS FIXED THE ODOR AND LEAKING OF GAS FROM UNDER THE JEEP. IF THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS AGAIN IN THE FUTURE, NOW KNOWING ABOUT THE EXTENDED WARRANTY WITH THE OTHER PROBLEM, WE WILL CONTACT THE DEALER ABOUT IT TO SEE IF IT IS COVERED TOO AS IT IS GAS TANK RELATED. NOTE - IT WAS RIGHT AFTER OUR MECHANIC FIXED THE ODOR AND UNDER CAR LEAK THAT THE OTHER PROBLEM OF THE GAS SURGING OUT OF THE PUMP STARTED AGAIN. *TR

BOUGHT A 2008 JEEP WRANGLER X FROM BROOKFIELD CHRYSLER IN BENTON HARBOR MICHIGAN IN FEBRUARY. AFTER TWO WEEKS I BROUGHT IT BACK BECAUSE OF EXTREME AND UNSAFE TIRE WEAR DUE TO A DAMAGED FRONT AXLE. THEY REPLACED THE AXLE AND FRONT TIRES. THE VERY SAME DAY IT STARTED THE INFAMOUS DEATH WOBBLE. I WOULD BE ON THE HIGHWAY AT 70 MPH (OR ANYTHING ABOVE 20), AND HIT A BUMP, AND THE FRONT END WOULD START SHAKING UNCONTROLLABLY. I COULD LOOK OUT THE WINDOW AND SEE THE TIRES MOVING BACK AND FORTH EXTREMELY. THIS RESULTED IN ME LOSING CONTROL AND RUNNING OFF THE HIGHWAY INTO A DITCH. *TR

Summary

I HAVE HAD PERSISTENT VIOLENT SHAKING OF THE FRONT END AFTER HITTING MINOR BUMPS AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. THE ISSUE IS REFERRED TO AS THE "DEATH WOBBLE" BY OTHERS ONLINE AND BY JEEP DEALERSHIP. THEY FIXED ONCE UNDER WARRANTY AT LESS THAN 20K MILES AND NOW THAT IT IS RECURRING AT 38K-47K MILES THEY WILL NOT COVER. I HAVE MADE NO MODIFICATIONS TO THE VEHICLE - IT IS STOCK. THE ISSUE HAPPENED 3 TIMES IN ONE TRIP THIS PAST WEEKEND WHERE I NEED TO BRING THE CAR TO A NEAR STOP ON THE HIGHWAY (OBVIOUSLY A DANGEROUS CONDITION). I CALLED JEEP CORPORATE (MAX, LEVEL 1 AGENT. [XXX] REP # 4.2.2013 2:50PM EASTERN TIME FOR A 30 MINUTE + CALL.) THEY INFORMED ME THEY WOULD NOT COVER AND READ A STATEMENT. I AM SHOCKED THAT JEEP REFUSES TO FIX SOMETHING THE DEALER QUOTED ME $350 TO RESOLVE THAT IS CLEARLY A COMMON DEFECT IN THEIR PRODUCT AND CAUSES A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE. I HOPE THAT YOUR ORGANIZATION CAN ENCOURAGE PROACTIVE RESOLUTION BEFORE SOMEONE IS SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING ONE DAY MY AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON,NOTHING HAPPENED TO THE VEHICLE TO WARRANT THIS COMING ON. I TOOK THE JEEP TO MY DEALERSHIP AND THEY TOLD ME IT NEED A NEW CLOCKSPRING. UPON RESEARCHING THIS PART I FOUND THAT IT HAS BEEN RECALLED ON 2007 WRANGLERS AND RHD WRANGLERS, HOWEVER MINE HAS NOT BEEN RECALLED YET DESPITE SEVERAL PEOPLE ONLINE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE THAT JEEP IS AWARE OF AND I BELIEVE THEY SHOULD REPLACE THIS PART WITH NO CHARGE. *TR

Summary

AT APPROXIMATELY 51 MPH AND AFTER PASSING OVER A ROUGH SPOT ON THE HIGHWAY SURFACE THE VEHICLE STARTED TO EXTREMELY VIBRATE AND SHIMMY. MAINTAINING CONTROL WAS DIFFICULT AND NECESSITATED AN IMMEDIATE REDUCTION IN SPEED. ON AN APPROXIMATE 50 MILE TRIP THIS WAS REPEATED FOUR TIMES WHILE ON AN INTERSTATE. THIS WAS MUCH MORE VIOLENT THAN A BLOW OUT, TIRE SEPARATION, OR AN UNBALANCED TIRE. THIS MALADY COULD EASILY RESULT IN A FATALITY. I'VE LOGGED APPROXIMATELY 2MILLION MILES DRIVING AND I MUST ADD THIS SITUATION IS VERY SERIOUS. *TR

Summary

THE AIRBAG LIGHT TURNS ON AND OFF, INDICATING THAT THERE IS AN INTERMITTENT MALFUNCTION WITH THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. THE PROBLEM IS A SIMPLE PART - THE CLOCK SPRING IN THE STEERING THAT CONNECTS THE AIRBAG TO THE CONTROL MODULE. IF THE SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS BEFORE OR DURING A CRASH, THE AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY, AND COULD CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. I AM SHOCKED THAT THIS SAFETY ISSUE IS NOT BEING RECOGNIZED OR COVERED BY JEEP! *TR

I WAS COMING OFF THE FREEWAY ONTO AN EXIT AND THE JEEP STARTED SHAKING REALLY BAD, ALMOST TO THE POINT THAT I COULDN'T CONTROL IT. I PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND MY BOYS THOUGHT IT WAS A FLAT TIRE (OR TWO) SO THEY GOT OUT AND LOOKED. NO FLAT. WE WERE ALMOST TO OUR DESTINATION SO ONCE I SETTLED DOWN, WENT THE REST OF THE WAY WITH NO PROBLEM. I HAVE NOT HAD THAT HAPPEN AGAIN SINCE THEN BUT IT IS VERY SCARY AND WITH ONE OR BOTH OF MY KIDS IN THE CAR AT ALL TIMES, I DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO HAPPEN. WHAT IS IT AND HOW CAN IT BE FIXED?

I DID AND THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT AND COULDN'T MAKE THE LIGHT COME BACK ON. OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS, THE RED LIGHT WOULD COME ON BUT NOT THE TIRE LIGHT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY JEEP? IF THE LIGHT DOESN'T COME ON, THEY CAN'T FIX IT??? IT DOESN'T COME ON BY COMMAND. AND IT IS STILL COMING ON/OFF/ON/OFF. *TR

WHILE TRAVELING ON ROUTE 95 AT 65MPH, I HIT A BUMP AND MY FRONT END BEGAN TO VIOLENTLY SHAKE REQUIRING ME TO PULL INTO THE BREAKDOWN LANE AND COME TO A STOP.

I HAVE MAINTAINED MY VEHICLE ON A REGULAR BASIS AND THE REALLY CONCERNING PART IS THE NUMBER OF REPORTS ON VARIOUS WEB FORUMS. THERE IS NO WAY TO KNOW IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AND THE UNSUSPECTING DRIVER CAN LOSE CONTROL AND CRASH VERY EASILY. IF YOU NEED ANY FURTHER INFORMATION, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CALL ME. THANKS *TR

Summary

DEATH WOBBLE 2008 WRANGLER 2ND REPAIR, STILL NOT FIXED. FIRST TIME I NOTICED IT IN 2010, LESS THAN 25000 MILES. I ASSUMED IT WAS THE ROAD CONDITION. WHEN I REALIZED THAT IT WOULD HAPPEN UNDER VARIOUS ROAD CONDITIONS, I NOTED OTHER FACTORS REALIZING THAT IT SEEMED TO OCCUR AT APPROXIMATELY 57 MPH. AT FIRST THE VIBRATION WAS JUST ANNOYING AND INTERMITTENT. THEN IT GOT WORSE AND I WAS SCARED BECAUSE IT SHOOK SO VIOLENTLY AT 57 MPH. I THOUGHT THE VEHICLE WAS GOING TO ROLL SPONTANEOUSLY. IN MARCH 2010, TOOK IT TO A DEALER; THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T RECREATE THE PROBLEM SO COULDN'T FIX IT. I CALLED ANOTHER DEALER AND THE SERVICE TECH (IN 2010) MENTIONED, "JEEP WOBBLE"- I GOOGLED IT AND FOUND VERY LITTLE INFO- JUST SOME JEEP OWNER BLOGS THAT DESCRIBED EXACTLY WHAT I FELT. THE DEALER FIXED THE PROBLEM (UNDER WARRANTY) BY REPLACING THE STEERING COLUMN SHOCK (OR SOMETHING). SINCE I HAD IT REPAIRED, I STILL EXPERIENCED THE NORMAL, MINOR VIBRATION THAT HAPPENS AROUND 55 MPH. RECENTLY (JAN 2013) THE DEATH WOBBLE RETURNED WITH A VENGEANCE. REGARDLESS OF ROAD CONDITIONS, AT 57 MPH IT SHAKES SO BADLY THAT IT FEELS LIKE I WILL LOOSE CONTROL. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAID THAT THEY WILL REPLACE THE SHOCK AGAIN AND THEY MENTIONED THAT THE PART HAS BEEN IMPROVED WITH BRACKETS OR SOME SUCH. OF COURSE, AT 57000 MILES, IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY AND I HAD TO PAY THE $230 FOR THE REPAIR. THE TECH TOLD ME THAT THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE AND I WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO REPLACE IT AGAIN IN ANOTHER 25000 MILES. I CALL BS! THE JEEP HAS NEVER BEEN OFF-ROAD, NEVER MISTREATED, ALWAYS MAINTAINED. NEITHER DEALER NOR MANUFACTURER EVER MENTIONED THIS TSB DURING THE 2013 REPAIR. WHEN I PICKED IT UP, IT WAS NOT FIXED. JEEP CO. HAS AGREED TO REIMBURSE ME FOR ALL BUT $100 (DEDUCTIBLE) BUT WHY DO I HAVE TO KEEP PAYING FOR REPAIRS ON A KNOWN ISSUE? VIBRATION IS SO BAD, IT COULD CAUSE ME TO WRECK. *TR

Summary

I HAVE A 2008 JEEP WRANGLER SAHARA UNLIMITED WITH 50,000 MILES AND PURCHASED NEW. I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING "DEATH WOBBLE" OR AN UNCONTROLLABLE SHAKING IN THE FRONT END OF MY VEHICLE INTERMITTENTLY BUT GENERALLY AT SPEEDS OF 40 MPH AND HIGHER. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO MY MECHANIC WHO INSPECTED THE FRONT END, TIRES, BRAKES AND ALIGNMENT WHICH ALL WERE FINE. I LATER WENT TO THE JEEP DEALERSHIP SERVICE CENTER WHO SAID I HAD "DEATH WOBBLE" BUT COULD NOT GIVE ME A DEFINITIVE CAUSE OR COST TO REPAIR. AFTER RESEARCHING THIS ON-LINE, I DISCOVERED THAT THIS IS A WIDE SPREAD PROBLEM THAT JEEP HAS KNOWN ABOUT FOR YEARS HTTP://WWW.JEEPZ.COM/FORUM/SUSPENSION/29510-WRANGLER-DEATH-WOBBLE-WHAT-CAUSES-HOW-FIX.HTML. MY VEHICLE IS COMPLETELY STOCK WITH NO MODIFICATIONS AND I DO NOT USE IT OFF-ROAD. ADDITIONALLY IT IS VERY WELL MAINTAINED AND I HAVE HAD NO ACCIDENTS OR MAJOR REPAIRS. HERE IS A VIDEO OF MY EXPERIENCE: HTTP://WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/WATCH?V=7PEN1IT91Z0 I HAVE READ THAT CONGRESS ADDRESSED THIS WITH JEEP AND JEEP HAS ISSUED A TECHNICAL BULLETIN HTTP://EDITORIAL.AUTOS.MSN.COM/BLOGS/AUTOSBLOGPOST.ASPX?POST=BB1D0352-F579-4468-B24F-60869E95D02F BUT THAT IS ALL.

Summary

MY AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT CAME ON WHILE DRIVING WHICH INDICATED THAT THE AIRBAG WOULD NOT WORK IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH. LIGHT CONTINUED TO GO ON AND OFF FOR SEVERAL DAYS AT RANDOM. DEALER TOLD ME THE CLOCK SPRING WAS LIKELY FAULTY AND WANTED NEARLY $1,000 TO FIX IT. I READ ONLINE FORUMS WHERE THE RIGHT-HAND DRIVE JEEPS HAD A RECALL ON THE CLOCK SPRING FOR THIS VERY ISSUE. ALSO READ MULTIPLE FORUMS WITH HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS THAT THE ISSUE IS PREVALENT ON LEFT HAND DRIVE JEEPS. I REMOVED MY CLOCK SPRING AND TESTED IT AND FOUND ONE CIRCUIT WAS SHORTING OUT DUE TO WEAR ON THE RIBBON WIRE WHERE THE RIBBON CONTACTS THE PLASTIC HOUSING. THIS APPEARS TO BE A FAULTY CLOCK SPRING DESIGN AND IS VERY DANGEROUS AS IT MAY PREVENT THE AIRBAG FROM DEPLOYING IN A CRASH AND THE ONLY REPAIR/REPLACEMENT OPTION IS TO PUT A NEW CLOCK SPRING BACK IN THAT HAS THE SAME DESIGN FLAW AS THE ORIGINAL. I REPLACED MY CLOCK SPRING WITH A NEW OEM UNIT BUT BASED ON THE HISTORICAL DATA, THE REPLACEMENT CLOCK SPRING IS NOT LIKELY TO LAST OR BE RELIABLE. *TR

Summary

DEATH WOBBLE ON A 2008 JEEP WRANGLER. VEHICLE HAS A PREDICTABLE VIBRATION BETWEEN 55-60 MPH. ON ONE OCCASION, THE VEHICLE SHOOK SO VIOLENTLY THAT IT TOOK THE STEERING WHEEL OUT OF MY WIFE'S HANDS. SHE WAS GOING AROUND 55 MPH AROUND A CURVE. ON A SECOND OCCASION, I WAS SLOWING DOWN TO TAKE AN EXIT RAMP. SLOWING FROM 75 MPH TO AROUND 60 MPH AND ENTERING THE EXIT RAMP CURVE, THE STEERING WHEEL WAS ALMOST SHAKEN OUT OF MY HANDS. ON A THIRD OCCASION, AT AROUND 60 MPH ON A STRAIGHT ROAD WITH NO BUMPS, THE JEEP BEGAN TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY AND AGAIN PULLED THE STEERING WHEEL OUT OF ANOTHER DRIVERS HANDS. THE MINOR VIBRATION HAPPENS EVERYDAY BETWEEN 55-60 MPH. THE DEALERSHIP SAYS NOTHING IS WRONG. I HAVE REPLACED THE STEERING STABILIZER WITH A RANCHO HEAVY DUTY STABILIZER. VIBRATION WENT AWAY FOR ABOUT 500 MILES. I RELIGIOUSLY DO A 5 TIRE ROTATION AND BALANCE. NO CHANGE. I HAVE HAD A 4 WHEEL ALIGNMENT COMPLETED. NO CHANGE. JEEP WILL NOT DRIVE THE VEHICLE. THEY SAY IF THERE IS A VIBRATION TO HAVE THE TIRES BALANCED AND THE FRONT END ALIGNED. WHEN I TELL THEM THAT HAS BEEN DONE, THEIR REPLY IS THAT IT WAS NOT COMPLETED PROPERLY AND THEY WOULD DO IT FOR $300. I AM GETTING TO THE POINT OF SELLING OR TRADING IT IN SINCE I CANNOT FIX THE ISSUE. I AM ALMOST READY TO TRY TO REPLACE BALL JOINTS, BUT AT 47,700 MILES AND NO SUSPENSION OR ENGINE MODIFICATIONS. THE JEEP HAS NEVER BEEN OFF-ROADED, NEVER BEEN MISTREATED. WHAT NOW? JEEP ALSO OFFERED TO REPLACE THE BALL JOINTS, PITMAN ARM, TIE ROD ENDS, SWAY BAR END LINKS, ETC. FOR A NICE SUM OF THE $2500. OUCH. *TR

ON APPROXIMATELY 01/21/13 AT ABOUT 8:00AM, WHILE TRAVELING ON THE 405 FREEWAY AT ABOUT 50MPH, MY JEEP GOT THE "DEATH WOBBLES". IT WAS FOUND THE ENTIRE FRONT HOUSING SNAPPED OFF. IT WAS FIXED AND RETURNED TO ME. ON 02/11/13 AT ABOUT 10:30AM, I WAS MERGING ON TO THE I-5 N/B FROM SAND CANYON IN IRVINE. WHEN I REACHED 45MPH, I GOT THE "DEATH WOBBLES" AGAIN. THIS TIME, THE DEALER SAID IT WAS BECAUSE I HAD CHEAP TIRES ON THE VEHICLE. I HAVE NITTO TIRES WHICH ARE ABOUT $250 EACH. I HAVE LOOKED INTO THE DEATH WOBBLES AND IT APPEARS JEEP HAS A REAL PROBLEM. THE VEHICLE SHAKES SO VIOLENTLY YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE LOSING CONTROL. SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET KILLED AND JEEP KNOWS IT. I HAVE HAD MY VEHICLE IN TWICE NOW FOR THE SAME THING. ONCE MORE AND I AM GOING LEMON LAW. IF THEY GIVE IT BACK AND MY FAMILY IS INJURED AS A RESULT OF A KNOWN FLAW. STAND BY! THIS IS CRAP. YOU CANNOT KNOWINGLY SELL A DEFECTIVE VEHICLE CAN YOU? SEEMS LIKE IT WOULD BE CRIMINAL TO DEFRAUD OR FAIL TO DISCLOSE THIS DEATH WOBBLE ISSUE TO BUYERS. I DID NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS UNTIL IT HAPPENED TO ME. *TR

Summary

WHILE DRIVING DOWN A HIGHWAY AT APPROXIMATELY 45-50 MPH, DROVE OVER A PATCHED AREA OF THE ROADWAY WHILE STEERING LEFT. WHAT ENSUED WAS PURE [XXX]. THE VEHICLE SHOOK UNCONTROLLABLY FOR ABOUT 200 FEET OR SO UNTIL I COULD GET IT BACK UNDER CONTROL AND OFF THE ROAD. HAVE TALKED TO SEVERAL MECHANICS IN THE AREA AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER....UNLESS THEY CAN GET THE VEHICLE TO IMITATE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME WHILE THEY TEST DROVE IT NOTHING COULD OFFICIALLY BE DONE. AFTER LOOKING UP AND READING HUNDREDS OF REPORTS FROM OTHER PEOPLE WITH THE SAME "ISSUES" I FEEL THAT THE JEEP CORPORATION NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS SOON BEFORE SOMEONE DIES IN AN ACCIDENT. I AM THE SECOND OWNER OF THIS VEHICLE AND HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING TO IT MECHANICALLY. IT IS STILL STOCK INSIDE AND OUT. VEHICLE HAS JUST OVER 21,000 MILES ON IT. HAVE HAD IT OFF ROAD ONCE SCOUTING FOR HUNTING AREAS AND NOTHING MORE. THIS IS A DAILY DRIVER TO WORK AND BACK, DON'T EVEN WANT TO GET IT OUT ON A HIGHWAY AND GET IT UP TO THE 75 MPH SPEED LIMIT HERE IN KS. NOT SURE WHAT TO DO ABOUT THIS. I CAN ACTUALLY GET UNDERNEATH THE VEHICLE AND ROLL THE LINKAGE BAR WITH THE STEERING STABILIZER ON IT ABOUT AN INCH OR SO UP AND DOWN. TIE-ROD ENDS HAVE GOT TO BE GOING BUT 2 MECHANICS SAID NOTHING WAS WRONG. PLEASE HELP!!!! INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *TR

Summary

I STARTED MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER JK AND IMMEDIATELY GOT A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WITH AN AUDIBLE SOUND. THE ENGINE WAS RUNNING VERY ROUGH AND SHAKING. I TURNED OFF THE ENGINE AND IT SEEMED FINE BUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS STILL ON. I HAVE A OBD2 DIAGNOSTIC CODE READER AND IT SHOWED THE CODE P0306. THIS IS A MISFIRE ON THE NUMBER SIX CYLINDER. I TOOK IT TO LARRY H. MILLER CHRYSLER JEEP DODGE RAM DEALERSHIP IN ALBUQUERQUE AND THIS IS WHAT WAS DONE. "WI TECH DIAGNOSTICS FOR FAULT CODES, HAD STORE CODES FOR INJECTOR #6 CIRCUIT, NO WORK DONE, OPERATING AS PER DESIGN". I ASKED WHAT CAN BE DONE TO FIX THE PROBLEM AND [XXX] SAID THAT THE TECH COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM SO THEY COULD NOT FIX ANYTHING. [XXX] OFFERED TO PERFORM A FUEL INJECTOR CLEANING BUT THIS WAS THE ONLY OPTIONS FOR NOW. THE NEXT DAY I STARTED THE JEEP AND HAD THE SAME ISSUE. I LOOKED UP THIS CODE 0306 ON THE JEEP JK SITE AND READ POSTS OF "PENTASTAR PROBLEM". IN ALL CASES THESE PEOPLE HAD TO VISIT THE DEALERSHIP 4 TO 5 TIMES UNTIL THEY FIXED THE PROBLEM.

I AM TIRED OF NOT BEING ABLE TO FILL UP MY GAS TANK ALL THE WAY. I'VE HAD TO STOP THE GAS PUMP A GALLON OR TWO BEFORE MY TANK IS FULL SO I WON'T WASTE GAS OR GET ANY GASOLINE SPILLED ON ME. EVERY TIME I TAKE MY JEEP IN FOR SERVICE OR AN OIL CHANGE I ALWAYS ASK IF THERE IS A RECALL YET TO FIX THIS GAS SPILLAGE PROBLEM. I HAVE HAD SO MANY OTHER RECALLS & OTHER PROBLEMS WITH MY JEEP I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THIS ONE ISSUE HAS NOT BEEN SERIOUSLY ADDRESSED YET. I'M TIRED OF HAVING TO BABYSIT A GAS PUMP EVERY TIME I PUT TEN OR ELEVEN GALLONS IN. IT WOULDN'T BE SUCH A PROBLEM IF THIS JEEP WOULD GET BETTER GAS MILEAGE BUT IT DOESN'T SO I AM AT THE GAS STATION MORE OFTEN THAN I SHOULD BE JUST BECAUSE I CAN'T EVER FILL UP MY TANK ALL THE WAY. *TR

Summary

WHILE DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE HIGHWAY AT 65 MPH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM HAD A CONTROL SYSTEM FAILURE EVENT (THIS IS THE THIRD EVENT IN 4 DAYS), CAUSING THE WINDSHIELD WASHER TO SPRAY WASHER FLUID ONTO THE WINDSHIELD DRAMATICALLY REDUCING DRIVER VISIBILITY, THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS DID NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY, THEY ONLY TRAVELED ABOUT ONE-QUART INCH IN TIME WITH THE HORN CHIRPING. THE WIPERS DID NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY EVEN WHEN TURNED ON DIRECTLY BY THE DRIVER TO ADDRESS THE WASHER FLUID DISCHARGING ONTO THE WINDSHIELD UNEXPECTEDLY. THE DRIVER EXITED THE FREEWAY TO THE EMERGENCY SHOULDER TO AVOID AN ACCIDENT. THE ELECTRICAL FAILURE EVENT AND THE DRIVERS OCCLUDED VISIBILITY CAUSE BY THE UNEXPECTED DISCHARGE OF WASHER FLUID AND NON-PROPERLY FUNCTIONING WINDSHIELD WIPERS LASTED FOR THE DURATION OF THE UNEXPECTED ELECTRIC CONTROL SYSTEM FAILURE EVENT OF ABOUT 4 MINS.. THERE WAS NO FAILURE INDICATION ON THE DASH PANEL AND NO WARNING THAT THE FAILURE HAD OCCURRED TO THE DRIVER. THE EVENT WAS UNEXPECTED AND WITHOUT WARNING AND OCCURRED WHILE THE MOTOR VEHICLE WAS BEING OPERATED. SERVICE APPOINTMENT WITH DEALER FOR THE VEHICLE'S ELECTRICAL CONTROL SYSTEM FAILURES HAS BEEN SCHEDULED. IN MY OPINION THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN THAT HAS ALREADY OR IS VERY LIKELY TO RESULT IN INJURY OR A FATALITY. NO VEHICLE SYSTEM WHEN EXPERIENCING ANY TYPE OF FAILURE MODE SHOULD BE ABLE TO OPERATE ANY SYSTEM ON THE VEHICLE IN AN UNSAFE AND/OR UNEXPECTED WAY OR REALLY ANY MANNER. *TR

Summary

DURING A ROUTINE MAINTENANCE SERVICE, THE DEALER NOTICED A LARGE AMOUNT OF "PLAY" IN THE STEERING WHEEL OF OUR 2008 JEEP WRANGLER SAHARA 2-DOOR. IT MEASURED GREATER THAN THE ALLOWABLE MOVEMENT. AFTER READING ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF "DEATH WOBBLE" IT WAS DECIDED THAT THIS COULD BE THE EARLY SIGNS OF THIS PROBLEM. WITH THE NUMEROUS DOCUMENTED CASES OF THIS ISSUE, WE ASKED THE DEALER TO CONTACT CHRYSLER TO COVER THE $600+ REPAIR/UPGRADE THAT WAS SUGGESTED(INCLUDING AN UPGRADED STEERING DAMPER, UPGRADED TIE ROD, AND WHEEL ALIGNMENT). THE VEHICLE IS COMPLETELY STOCK, WELL MAINTAINED, HAS 35,000 MILES, AND HAS NEVER BEEN OFF-ROAD. THE DEALER AGREED THAT THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE FACTORY PARTS AND IT SHOULDN'T BE OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO COVER THE COST OF THE UPGRADE. THEY DROPPED THE PRICE DOWN TO $100 AND IT IS NOW BEING REPAIRED. THE VEHICLE SHOULD BE READY TOMORROW, SO WE WILL FIND OUT IF THESE NEW PARTS WILL PREVENT THE "DEATH WOBBLE" ISSUE. *TR

Summary

I WAS DRIVING APPROX. 55 MPH, WHEN MY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER BEGAN TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY. BRAKING, I PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO CHECK FOR A BLOWN TIRE. I WALKED AROUND THE JEEP AND SAW NOTHING WRONG. AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT, I WAS IN FRONT OF A JEEP DEALERSHIP. I PULLED ACROSS THE HIGHWAY AND LEFT THE JEEP FOR INSPECTION AND REPAIRS. THE FOLLOWING DAY I WAS CONTACTED AND TOLD THAT I HAD EXPERIENCED THE "DEATH WOBBLE". I WAS TOLD I NEEDED TO REPLACE THE STEERING DAMPER SHOCK, LOWER CONTROL ARMS AND DAMPER BRACKETS. THEN I HAD TO PAY FOR TIRE ROTATION AND WHEEL ALIGNMENT. I HAVE FOUND PLENTY OF COMPLAINTS ON THE INTERNET ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. AFTER READING SOME, I AM AFRAID IT COULD STILL HAPPEN AGAIN. I AM CONSIDERING SELLING THE JEEP. I THINK THAT JEEP OWES THE JEEP OWNERS A RECALL. THESE REPAIRS COST MY $650.00. I HAVE OWNED 5 JEEP WRANGLERS, I WON'T BUY ANOTHER ONE, UNLESS JEEP MAKES THIS RIGHT!! *TR

EXPERIENCED THE NOTORIOUS "DEATH WOBBLE" AGAIN TODAY. THIS HAS HAPPENED PLENTY OF TIMES TO ME, BUT TODAY IT WAS THE MOST SEVERE AND WORRISOME. THE VEHICLE SHAKES AND RATTLES SO MUCH THAT I EXPECT PIECES TO FALL OFF. OTHER CARS PULL UP TO ME ON THE HIGHWAY OFF RAMP (WHERE IT OFTEN HAPPENS ON OUR BUMPY MASSACHUSETTS ROADS) AND ASK IF EVERYTHING IS OKAY. I'M NOT SURE IF I WOULD BUY THIS JEEP AGAIN. THEY REALLY NEED TO FIX THIS. ARTICLES ONLINE SEEM TO SUGGEST THAT IT IS THE STOCK TRACK BAR, AND IF SO, WHY WON'T CHRYSLER JUST REPLACE THEM? *TR

Summary

2008 JEEP WRANGLER SAHARA STOCK. VIOLENT WOBBLE. "DEATH WOBBLE" WHILE TRAVELING AT HIGHWAY SPEED, 60MPH, I CROSSED OVER AN EXPANSION CRACK FOR A BRIDGE. THE FRONT END OF THE JEEP BEGAN A VIOLENT WOBBLE BACK AND FORTH UNTIL SLOWING DOWN TO APPROXIMATELY 10 MPH. THIS WOBBLE ALMOST CONTRIBUTED TO A HEAD ON COLLISION WITH A TRACTOR TRAILER IN THE OPPOSING TRAFFIC DUE TO AN ALMOST COMPLETE LOSS OF STEERING CAPABILITY. THE PROBLEM HAPPENED AGAIN AT THE SAME SPEED AFTER ANOTHER SMALL BUMP. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS SITUATION. AFTER RESEARCHING THE PROBLEM FURTHER, THERE ARE ENDLESS FACTORS THAT TRIGGER THE WOBBLE. EACH PROBLEM MAY BE FIXED, BUT IT WILL ONLY PROVIDE A TEMPORARY SOLUTION. THE WOBBLE ITSELF CANNOT BE FIXED UNDER MOST CIRCUMSTANCES, YOU CAN ONLY FIX WHAT SETS IT OFF. THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN DOCUMENTED MULTIPLE TIMES ON THE INTERNET. IT WAS ALSO DISPLAYED PUBLICLY ON THE NEWS, HOWEVER CHRYSLER HAS NOT BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE. *TR

Summary

HAVING PROBLEM WITH "DEATH WOBBLE". WHILE TRAVELING AT A HIGH RATE OF SPEED, OVER 40MPH. A VIOLENT SHAKING HAS OCCURRED A MULTIPLE NUMBER OF TIMES. FEELS AS THOUGH THE ENTIRE FRONT END OF VEHICLE IS READY TO FLY OFF. CONTROL OF VEHICLE IS COMPROMISED. ESPECIALLY AT SUCH A HIGH RATE OF SPEED, WHICH USUALLY OCCURS ON THE FREEWAY WITH OTHER VEHICLES AROUND. DEALERSHIP SAYS THAT THE STEERING STABILIZER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET SAYS THAT THIS JUST MASKS THE PROBLEM. PERSONALLY LOOKING AT THE STEERING COMPONENTS OF THE VEHICLE. I CANNOT SEE HOW A WORN OUT STEERING STABILIZER CAN CAUSE SO MUCH CHAOS. *TR

Summary

DEATH WOBBLE, TERRIBLE STEERING SHIMMER. DRIVING ON HIGHWAY AT 55 MPH. HIT ONE BUMP ON THE ROAD AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE VEHICLE STARTED SHAKING VIOLENTLY. I NEEDED TO SLAM ON THE BREAKS TO KEEP THE VEHICLE FROM MAYBE FLIPPING OVER. IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE, BUT NOT THIS VIOLENT. TO FIX THIS I INSTALLED A DUAL STEERING STABILIZER SET UP MADE BY SKYJACKER. *TR

Summary

HAVE JK 2R RUBICON MODEL. WHEN TRAVELING IN THE HIGH COUNTRY IN COLORADO I START TO SMELL FUEL FUMES AROUND NOON AND THEY DO NOT GO AWAY UNTIL WE REFUEL AT THE END OF THE DAY. THE FUEL TANK GET SO HOT THE ETHANOL BOILS OFF AND THE EMISSION SYSTEM CANNOT HANDLE THE FUMES SO THEY VENT INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. THE JEEP FILLS WITH FUMES AND VEHICLES BEHIND CAN SMELL THEM TOO. ALL OF THE TWO DOOR JK MODELS WE TRAVEL WITH HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. JEEP HAS BEEN OF NO HELP AND SAY THEY KNOW OF THE PROBLEM BUT HAVE NO SOLUTION. IN THE LAST YEAR 2 OF US HAVE CONTACTED LARGE CELL LYMPHOMA. ETHANOL IS A CLASS ONE CARCINOGIN. *TR

Summary

ON THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DASHBOARD, THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT FLASHES ON EVERY OTHER MINUTE WITH A CHIME, AN INDICATION THAT THERE IS SOMETHING MALFUNCTIONING OR INTERFERING WITH THE VEHICLE'S AIRBAGS.THIS HAS BEEN A RECURRING ISSUE AND CONCERN FOR MANY 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) OWNERS, INCLUDING MYSELF, AND HAS BEEN SHOWN TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO BE CAUSED BY A FAULTY CLOCKSPRING WITHIN THE VEHICLE'S STEERING WHEEL. THIS FAULTY CLOCKSPRING IS THE CULPRIT FOR POTENTIAL AIRBAG FAILURE IN THE 2008 JEEP WRANGLER (LHD) DURING AN ACCIDENT OR PREMATURE DEPLOYMENT WHEN SIMPLY DRIVING AROUND. DAIMLER CHRYSLER HAS REFUSED TO ADDRESS THE SAFETY CONCERN OF THEIR FAULTY CLOCKSPRING THAT CAN CAUSE FAILURE OF THE VEHICLE'S AIRBAGS FROM PROPERLY DEPLOYING. *TR

Summary

I PURCHASED A NEW 2008 JEEP WRANGLER ON OCTOBER 31, 2008 FROM WEST-HERR CHYSLER JEEP. I WAS DRIVING TO WORK ON THE MORNING OF 6/16/2010, WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) LIGHT CAME ON JUST MOMENTS BEFORE I WAS TO ENTER HIGHWAY 219. (I WAS PASSING THROUGH THE TOWN OF ORCHARD PARK ON HIGHWAY 20A. I THOUGHT IT STRANGE BUT KNEW IT WAS VERY SENSITIVE TO EVEN A SLIGHT CHANGE IN PRESSURE.) I PROCEEDED TO ENTER THE 219, INCREASING SPEED TO 60 MPH, WHEN I SUDDENLY REALIZED I HAD LOST ALL PRESSURE IN MY RIGHT REAR TIRE. I MANAGED TO SAFELY EXIT THE HIGHWAY AND TO CALL MY HUSBAND TO CHANGE THE TIRE. WHILE DOING SO, HE NOTICED THE ENTIRE VALVE STEM WAS MISSING. THERE WAS JUST A HOLE WHERE IT HAD BEEN. HE ASSUMED THAT THE NUT THAT HOLDS THE TPMS HAD WORKED ITS WAY LOOSE AND THAT IT WAS INSIDE THE TIRE. HE TOOK THE TIRE TO WEST-HERR CHRYSLER JEEP AND THEY REINSERTED THE TPMS AND REPLACED THE MOUNTING NUT. ABOUT A YEAR LATER, THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN - INSTANT DEFLATION - WHILE I WAS DRIVING ON I-190 (ABOUT 50 MILES/HOUR), ONLY THIS TIME IT WAS MY LEFT REAR TIRE. AGAIN, I MANAGED TO EXIT SAFELY AND TO AGAIN CALL MY HUSBAND. THIS TIME HE COULDN'T GET THE TIRE OFF THE HUB SO WE CALLED AAA. WHILE WAITING FOR THEM, A FELLOW JEEP OWNER STOPPED TO RENDER ASSISTANCE AND HE POINTED OUT THAT THE NUT HOLD THE TPMS ON THE LEFT FRONT TIRE WAS CORRODED AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED ALSO. (MY HUSBAND WHO HAS A PH.D. IN CHEMISTRY FROM INDIANA U. NOTICED THAT MOST OF THE VALVE STEM IS ALUMINUM AND IT IS IN CONTACT WITH THE STEEL WHEEL. HE POSTULATED THAT THE TWO UNLIKE METALS ACTED AS A CELL AND WITH THE SALT THAT IS USED ON THE ROADS HERE THAT LED TO VERY RAPID CORROSION.) THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENED AGAIN MONDAY, 7/9/12, WITH MY RIGHT FRONT TIRE WHILE I WAS GOING 40 MPH. HOW CAN A VEHICLE BE MARKETED WITH SUCH AN OBVIOUSLY DANGEROUS DESIGN FLAW?
