Somebody help me!! The stealership is trying to rob me blind!!

Okk so they might as well wear eye patches and scream out Aaarrrhhhh Matey gimme the Loot! I think they have a better chance getting my money that way, instead of acting like they care and trying to insult my intelligence by giving me the run around and trying to rack up a bigger bill to be paid for by me.

So this is the thing I have a 2 month warranty on my Jeep, by the way before signing they told me it was three. The warranty covers the most basic, I feel as if there is something wrong with my vehicle, Dealership keeps downplaying my judgment and tells me pretty much that My vehicle is fine. The best answer they had for me was to buy an extended warranty. It freaking sucks!!! How the hell am I supposed to pay outrageous car payments and insurance and still they keep trying to dig into my pockets. The manager told me, ooohhh if you dont want worries later on just get the extended warranty, stupid ass I wonder who told him I had money to give away. I mean I know my car is used but why so many problems, why don't these asses try to work with me.

So this is my situation, I don't know if I should back myself up with the extended warranty, Or just take it to a local shop and have them service it. I know mechanics try to get over but I just feel like the dealerships are the biggest sharks. What are your thoughts about this? Mannnn this Jeep has more high maintenance costs than my Girl.

What's wrong with the Jeep?

I have 2 warranties on my Jeep but both are null and void....lol!

Besides their warranty barely covers anything and the parts it covered I removed and replaced. It still has a 05 PCM though

Re: Somebody help me!! The stealership is trying to rob me blind!!

I agree that the dealerships are money grubbing bastards but at the same time you cant expect a 6 almost 7 year old Jeep with almost 70k on the clock to be trouble free. It is just hitting the point where things just start to break due to wear and tear.

Go to a local a shop and let them diagnose the problem. If it's fine, so be it. If it's a legitimate issue that your stealership is dodging then bring them a quote from the mechanic. If they still act like clowns then contact Chrysler directly.

I mean It might sound like Im whinning, Im not though just looking for some suggestions. Cause I live in the city so I don't know many people that have cars let alone Jeeps. I mean the thing that gets to me that Ive bought 2 cars before with 150,000 plus each and none of them gave me problems till about a year into owning them. So Im like Damn Im paying and arm and a leg and Im not expecting my vehicle to be error free after all it's used, but Damn I at least expect it to be somewhat reliable. So ok, Im whinning somewhat and youre right I shoulda done my homework beforehand, I only realized that after I signed everything, They fed into that I was amazed at the vehicle and since Jeep is a well known name, I was like I can't go wrong. I still appreciate your suggestions and everybody elses. Tell you the truth in a way I see my vehicle as an expensive puzzle, Figure this out figure that and I feel Like one with my vehicle so I understand it better.

So I already accept what I did and take full responsibilities, so I just want to take it from here and move forward. I just need help from you guys your experiences and expertise to get the ball rolling so I can have better control of my circumstances.

As far as what I think is wrong with my vehicle;

1) my vehicle accelerated backwards a few times all of a sudden while I had my foot on the brakes. I ruled out certain things like mat, or anything near or under the gas pedal, also foot hitting the gas pedal by mistake, So Im Keeping
a close eye on this.

2) While going back and forth ethier going from reverse to drive or vice versa the vehicle jerks back or forward what I mean it's not a smooth transition.

3) vehicle smells like gas when I start it up sometimes.

4) took my vehicle to the highway the other day I was going 60 mph I felt like my vehicle was moving way to much. I read into the " death wobble" sounds somewhat similar. Even If I hit a small as pothole the steering wheel moves about in turn moving the vehicle more than usual.

5) recently my vehicle has been stalling either in stop and go traffic or while parking it.

6) service break system came out on the dashboard the other day, also the tow/ haul symbol lite up. I restarted the vehicle and it dissapeared. I did the key dance ran the DTC report and nothing showed up.

7) I feel sometimes as if the steering is somewhat stiff sometimes, I checked the power steering fluid and it's up to par. I also checked the tires and it has the right pressure range.

So this is the rundown of the things that happen. I appreciate Any insight, like Im not scared of taking my vehicle anywhere to have them check it out, but I want to have better knowledge so I know they are not getting over on me and know that my vehicle is getting the care it needs. I know tune up might help some issues and appreciate the guys that comment on that thread it was very informative. I'm just waiting to get a little extra cash so I can start the maintenance but as of right now I want to be sure of my options so Im able to hit it on the nail with the limited cash I got.
