Dealer says that no damage will occur, Remote Start will not work now either Air Suspension error would go on and off repeatedly - turned out to be a wire that was rubbing under the vehicle that kept shorting out. Dealer repaired wire. Blind Spot Monitor error. Light will come on and the system will stop working until vehicle is restarted. Sometimes the error does not come up, but most of the time it does. Defective module that has been on backorder for 1+ month.

Sensors (2) for the braking system and cruise control acting up. Due to family emergencies we could not get this repair done while still under warranty. They initially quoted $2,100, saying the extended warranty didn't cover these parts (though the salesman had told me it "covers everything"), then $700, and ultimately charged $132.50. This Grand Cherokee, my wife's, had one or two similar problems in the first 36 months we had it. (We bought the Jeep around 20 March 2014, so it is just over 3 years old, and has less than 31,000 miles on it at this time.)

Warning message that vehicle had a "suspension problem" and needed to "immediately" be returned to the Jeep dealer. We were told "a suspension (ride height control) module has failed." A new module is on order but will not arrive at the dealership until Tuesday, 10 October. We picked up our car today, 6 October, because my wife and I are flying to Hawaii on 9 October. We'll have the module replaced after returning to Utah in late December. (We were told the module will be replaced under the dealer's "LandCar Warranty" that was added to the price of the Grand Cherokee when we bought it new on 21 March 2014. We have a $100.00 deductible on the "module" and labor for replacing it.

Weather warmed up. Noticed rattling noise, seemingly random, with windows down. Crawled around and noticed that right rear-most muffler hanger was not reinstalled after major repair from previous month. Returned to dealer. They said "that wasn't it", "had to use Chassis Ears", "probably rock in front left brake dust cover", "that'll be $150, please and thank you". Noticed left rear shock was leaking, apparently leaking for some time. Dealer didn't tell me during previous visit. Called and set up another appointment. I said "one of my shocks is leaking". Received automatic email from dealer which stated "customer states left rear shock is leaking". Dealer read my mind! Extended warranty covered cost after $100 deductible, but would only replace ONE shock. I thought these had to be replaced in pairs! I'm done with Chrysler and Wickstrom Jeep in Barrington, IL.

The stereo amplifier was defective and created feedback through the speakers. The torque converter seems to have a shudder during wide open throttle passing maneuvers. This is noticeable on back country roads. The dealer claims that the torque converter needs 6,000 miles to break-in. Others have reported issues. The stereo amplifier failed. The radio worked but loud feedback came through the speakers. The problem was intermittent but diagnosed by the dealer.

Transmission Shudder - Primarily WOT during a downshift between 40-50mph passing maneuvers. In this case I noticed it following the owners manual instructions during break-in. Originally reported at 1700 miles. Rear Flipper Window Misalignment - Adhesive is coming off the brackets and the window became misaligned. The window closes against the rear pillar and has scratched the paint. It has also shifted the tailgate off-center. Driver Side View Mirror Blurry - I believe it came this way at delivery and I forgot to ask about it. The reflection always looked like double vision. You would see two sets of headlights in the rear view mirror. Diagnosis - Replace mirror Defective Key Fobik - One key Fobik stopped working. When inside the vehicle it would say "Damaged Key" on the EVIC. Diagnosis - Replace Key Fobik Front Tweeter Rattle - During uConnect calls the front tweeter would rattle. I asked them to look at the housing. Diagnosis - Front Tweeter but part is on back order. HVAC Blower Noise - Sounded like fins inside the fan were brushing against something. Diagnosis - Replace Blower Motor 
Apr 2011

Blower motor was replaced due to fins inside the unit rubbing something. The the speaker was on backorder and this visit was to install it once it came in. The mirror was defective and was on backorder. When available it was replaced and is not acceptable. Replaced front axle isolators to reduce transmission vibration and downshift shudder. Problem not resolved and in some cases was made worse. This on-going shudder problem cannot seem to be fixed. The vehicle has been in the shop for 21 days now. They replaced the drivetrain control module. Chrysler determined it was the wrong module. Did not fix the problem. They replaced the rear flipper window that become unglued and misaligned. I was told that the shudder is now a normal characteristic of this vehicle. I was told the vehicle did not shudder early on because the torque converter does not perform normally for the first 2,000 miles; the shudder is now normal.

During regular maintenance for replacing worn brake components, one lug stud was nearly completely stripped.

Primary reason for repair was noted loud clunking noises in front suspension and tendency to wander down the road. Determined to probably be a failed control arm bushing. Elected to also replace springs (factory springs had sagged, replaced with aftermarket lift springs), shocks (last replacement shocks had worn, replaced with new shocks) and spring isolators (had collapsed due to age). One of the front dash speakers was clicking under medium-to-high volume. Replaced front dash speakers with Powerbass speakers.

Old pulley would not separate cleanly from shaft, so this necessitated replacing the power steering pump. The old pressure line would not separate cleanly from the pump, so this line was also replaced. Power steering box was leaking from the pitman shaft seal. Replaced seal. Multiple small leaks from cooling system, along with an intermittent CEL for thermostat stuck open. Replaced heater core hoses, thermostat, and thermostat housing.

Just before I sold Jeep I had to have dealer install a new window actuator for passenger door. Brought them a thermostat switch for air conditioner, difficult to replace behind glove box. Adjustable speeds not working on the fan switch. Also put in new wiring harness behind it because it gets really hot and melts sometimes. Only thing left unrepaired was the driver door lock button. It would unlock the doors but not lock them. You have to replace the entire driver door panel if the switch goes bad. Mechanic offered to do it for $400, but already spent $1,800.
