2007 Jeep Patriot Limited leaks!

My fiance has a Patriot, and has had nothing but problems with the sunroof and the back of the Jeep leaking water through it. It only has 30k miles on it, has had all regular maint. and has already had a tie rod broken and a bald tire because of it replaced. No one can give us answers as to if this can be replaced. Many say they have fixed the problem, but then a week or so later the leak is back. Coming out of the dome light, the back hatch into the cab etc etc. I am really starting to get PISSED OFF at Jeep. Especially Bradshaw Jeep in oakville Connecticut, and Modern Mazda of Thomaston of Connecticut. Is there any information anyone knows of? Or any law that can get us either a new roof/perm. fix or the Jeep returned and our god damn money back.

Re: 2007 Jeep Patriot Limited leaks!

Any Warantee? Check the Patriot Forum. Maybe someone on that forum may have had a problem.

Try pooring water into the drains and see where the water is coming from. There are drains in the sunroof. They are little small holes. Poor is on both side. If they are clogged get a Air Gn and blow into it. That's what I did for my WK when I had the leak problem.

A TSB is scheduled to be released very soon that covers water leak diagnosis on the 2007-2010 Patriot models. This should help your dealer find a solution that works for the particular leaks you are having. I'll post back with the TSB when it's released, possibly as soon as next week.

Re: 2007 Jeep Patriot Limited leaks!

They have tried OVER and OVER to fix this leaks. I am about had it with this god damn Jeep and the people who are supposed to fix it. This thing is still under a full warrenty, but they basically are telling us to shove it over and over again. Chrystler doesn't want to hear it either. What do I do? A TSB is useless and does not MAKE them fix or replace anything. They have seen the leak in the front coming out from the dome and said it is *fixed* but i am sure it will come back again. They have yet to find or fix the rear leak through the hatch into the cab. Is there ANYTHING that I can do to not get screwed by these cheap stealerships and a careless Chrystler?

Re: 2007 Jeep Patriot Limited leaks!

Well, I once again confirm that Chrysler does NOT care at ALL about it's customers. Not only is this truck under warranty, but it has been in TWO dealerships NO LESS then 10-15 times for THIS issue alone. And they tell my fiance on the phone there is basically nothing they can do because the dealerships are working on it. But they are not owned by Chrysler so they can not do anything because these idiots are "still working on "it" ". Even tho the dealership will only tell us to our face that they can not fix it and Chrysler has to send someone out. But they won't confirm this in any way. So basically just wait for 0 answers until it is out of warranty.

Anyone here work for Chrysler or have any contacts that understand this run-around that can get anything done, I would greatly appreciate it before I fly off the handle.


EDIT 6/13/2010

Still no news from Chrysler ripoff department.

EDIT 6/16/2010

Still no call back from "I'll call you back in a minute, i'm with a customer" and "Someone will contact you today" and "Things are being done with the local district manager and the dealership owner blah blah blah"

Re: 2007 Jeep Patriot Limited leaks!

dude if it is still under a full warranty I do not understand why they will not do anything...so what have they done the 10-15 times you have brought it in to multiple dealers? What parts (if any) have they replaced? Do you have any documentation from them...any emails to Chrysler directly? Speak with the owner of the dealer? Better-Business-Bureau claim?

You need to get aggressive with documentation...and if they still don't do anyhting, get a lawyer plain and simple. It would be an open and shut case if you have really been sent away 10+ times from dealers for the same issue with no resolution. Just my $0.02
