General Comments:

I love the way this truck looks, but you could not pay me to purchase another Jeep or another American made car. I am going for Honda or Toyota (Lexus). It's worth the money up front not to buy a cheaper car and then pay into it later. No thanks.

I own a Jeep, my wife owns a Lexus. Both now have well over 100,000 miles. The Jeep has actually been more reliable than the Lexus. Both are very nice vehicles though and we would buy both brands again.

Summary:

Cherokee Laredo Jeep sleek look

Faults:

I had this Jeep for 6 years and had a few minor problems with the rear brake lights; wiring was faulty, corrected at my cost at dealership, took 3 service trips.

The door actuator on the front passenger side makes a buzzing sound every time you use the remote control locks; sometimes it doesn't work properly, causing delays when traveling because you can't get in that side.

Just today I noticed my fuel gauge is broken, light on. I just filled it up yesterday; it was working fine, headed for disaster on this costing approx. $500.00 dollars.

The transmission is starting to slip especially when climbing highway hills, it races and then catches the gear, sounds as if the transmission will fall out.

Overall I love this style of Jeep; it has class, looks, is comfortable, and sleek looking. My Jeep has been garage kept, maintained to perfection, oil changed every 3000 miles, tires, fluids, it looks about 3 years old, and some people think it's new, even the inside, but the problems have started and that's why I am reading all of your comments to help everyone with a recall. Please have Chrysler stand behind their vehicles. I would like to buy another, but if their word and loyalty is not with the consumer, which is me, then I will have to look elsewhere.

Summary:

Hunk o' crap

Faults:

Recently I was coming out of an establishment and used the remote to unlock the doors. All the interior lights stayed on, even after the car was started. Could not get the lights to go out.

I also noticed that the remote entry wouldn't work, as well as the passenger side windows and door locks would not work.(power locks only) (manual locks work fine.)...

Tried reseting the computer by turning the ignition off and on 3 times as directed by a mechanic I know... and the odometer displayed "Done" interior lights remained on.

I had to get home, so I manually turned the interior lights off with the dimmer switch. Upon arrival at home I removed and checked all of the fuzes... (no fuses blown). After I did this the interior lights went out and resumed working as usual... except for the fact that when you open the passenger side doors, the lights don't come on...

This was all happening in the last month or so. I've dealt with the problem for now, but my wife is tired of it. I took it to the Jeep dealer and paid for the scan. and they told me that the body control computer must be having problems, because nothing on the passenger side has power.. not the locks or the windows.

So my question is... has anybody else had problems like these? And if so, do they know what I can do to fix them without paying the Jeep dealer like 500 bucks +? They tell me that I have MAJOR electrical problems and that they will have to dig into it and find out what's wrong... and I'm not exactly willing to pay their hourly rate to quote "find the problem, then maybe be able to fix it." If I wanted to burn money, I'd start a fire with the jeep itself! It appears to be a hunk o' crap...

Oh, and just by the way... I also had a problem with the infamous QUACKING door... but it was the driver side rear door.

Thanks for any help you people can find...

I have the same problems with passenger windows & locks no power. It has been in the shop for 3 1/2 weeks. I have had it. Nobody knows what is wrong. It has to be in the wire harness of the rubber convoluted boot between the door and the body of the vehicle.
