I am going to re-post a previous comment I made on another thread to get the info out, and add another few comments...
"I am so tired of the random issues with this thing. We were chillin for a few minutes, so I turned it off, then cranked it back up; immediately the engine started this really
bad shaking, with what sounded like a rod going. Turned it off, cranked it again and it ran fine but the CE light came on. Another surprise in waiting for me I guess. Thank god it did not crap out on the trail. Never had so many problems with a vehicle with so much potential... So very disappointing.
I am really struggling with my logic in keeping this thing to be honest. A good concept, and runs the trails well so far, but guess I don't trust it. After the latest recall fix on the tranny, and I
am supposed to add a cooler to try and prevent it from happening, while they just add an alarm to tell me it is overheating? REALLY?
If I produced a similar fix like that in my world, I would be fired
for doing a half-ass job; not counting the cost to my client, and employer for wasting everyone's time.
One thing I can say is, if it was not for the internet, and you guys especially figuring out the problems and then sharing it, Chrysler would be in some very, very deep sheeot!"
Now on to the other crap... And if anyone wants to post up and say a $35,000 vehicle of any kind does this shit normally, you are a fool, and obviously have too much money, pride, or just in denial. Do me a favor and save your keyboard for something more intelligent, because I am not interested in hearing about it.
Steering - Why the fuck does my JK drift excessively to the right? Chrysler calls it a "Drift" btw.. You have to literally hold the steering wheel to the left to keep it going strait. If you drive on a crowned road on the left side, it will literally climb the center back into the right lane...They insulted me and my Wife by telling me that this was considered a customer service issue. WTF? Service manager told us that it was in the same category as not liking the paint color on delivery, not liking the smell. Also, they told me that "What did I expect, the vehicle is not designed to be driven on the road anyway." It took everything I had not to punch that prick in the face. After 7 months of fighting with them, we had to take a settlement on our BRAND NEW JK's "Steering Issues", which removed it from the warranty, just to save our sanity of dealing with these Jerks!
Why does my friggin roof leak? This is bullshit. If I leave it outside, the stupid roof is gonna drain all along the front and around the doors. Really? Now, I have to replace that too. Thank God someone here had one they did not need vs me spending another $1500-1600 on it.. I was going to invest another $5-6k into this thing, and discovering that I need to put that shit into the bank just to cover whatever else will go wrong.
I am soo tired of trying. Since they already got my money, I look like another idiot. Doing research on information only leads to more frustration, and talking to them does no good. They are broken.
Once again, I commend every one of you who spend your time and money trying to diagnose, work out, and fix this vehicle's issues basically for free, and whom obviously care more about this brand (Jeep Wrangler) than Chrysler does any of theirs, so the rest of us can try to keep enjoying driving it. This really has to stop. Apparently, Fiat is taking over from Mercedes in an attempt to fix all the quality, and safety issues with Jeep, and the rest of the crap they are feeding us. They surely have their work cut out for them.
Yes, I am pissed. I have every right to be. Rant over.
