Brake Light sensor never worked. Always says the brake lights are out, even when they work.
Occasionally the right brake light will stop working. I replaced it 3 times in 6 months and then just gave up, because it would work when put into the left. Mechanic has no explanation.
Interior lights dim when hitting the brakes. Mechanic unable to find source of problem.
Stereo has an bug in it. None of the buttons control what they are supposed to. You hit preset 1 and it changes to preset 5. You skip track on a cd and it changes to am radio. Mechanic cannot find source of problem.
Driver side door needed to be replaced 90K. The metal on the door where the locking device bolts in cracked like a tin can. Entire door needs replacing. $1900 dollars for a used door to have it matched because I couldn't find replacement in the right color. The dealer says it's not a MFG defect, but the same thing happened to my bosses Cherokee in the third year of ownership and the factory warrantied it; however, Jeep told me it's never happened before. I eventually had to have a body shop guy cut out the locking mechanism and re-weld the door. It was 1K as opposed to 2K. Not a cheap fix.
Some random solenoid broke cost $500.00 mechanic said it was the third one on a Jeep he fixed that week.
The seats are very uncomfortable. Not good for long road trips or a sales job where lots of time is spent in vehicle.
The rear hatch never stayed open. Have to hold it up with a golf club.
The car has been a money pit. The door breaking is absolutely unacceptable and the final straw. I just hope I can sell the stupid thing before the tranny fails. After all the reviews I've read, I fear that is the next problem.
I have all the same complaints hundreds of other people have, every review I read lists the same things. I wish Jeep would issue recalls and fix the problems with their vehicles as they are clearly not isolated issues. I found the Manufacturer's response to be lacking.
