The brakes on this car are horrible. I've had the car for 2 years and I am on the 3 set of rotors.
Steering wheel was shaking so I brought the car to the dealer. I needed new u-joints, front and back brake pads and they machined all my rotors. Yesterday the steering wheel started shaking when I went over bumps. I thought I had a flat tire. It kept shaking for about 5 seconds after the bump. Not sure what that will be, but I didn't happen before I took the car to the dealer.
I had an incident where I was driving on the highway during a downpour. I went through a large puddle at a high rate of speed, and when I went to apply the brakes they didn't work for a few seconds. Kind of scary, but dealer says it's "normal" when water gets into the brakes.
I also have the problem where the anti-lock brakes kick in when I go over a bump and brake at the same time. You lose your brakes for a moment, but I've learned to not brake over bumps!!
This car has serious brake issues and I would never buy a Jeep again. It is a dangerous vehicle in my opinion.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
