2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 from North America
Tail lamps have been replaced 2 years ago with OEM parts. Having the same problem with the brake lamp working and not working after the headlamps are turned on. When the tail lamps don't work, the third brake lamp stays on. Have torn the car apart to see if there's a short or bad ground. Everything points to replacing the tail lamps again. OH! I forgot! They're only warranted for 12 months!!! This should be a recall!!! Customer Safety Issue!
This all on top of transmission problems (still), heater core, etc. Jeep needs to take of their customers better and start issuing recalls on the known problem, especially the one tail lamp problem, which is a SAFETY ISSUE!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Seems like you are focused on the lights, but you didn't really elaborate on what kind of transmission problems or any other major issues you've had. Tail lights are hardly a major problem, even though they can be a safety issue. You need to find a good shop that can handle electrical problems, and get to the bottom of it. It is probably something simple that has been overlooked.
