this happened like 8 months ago - after the 60k tune up lose metal got into the valve body and clogged her tighter then dylans kid sister. Lost all use of the car and had to tow it 300 miles home myself since i was in the middle of no where.

i didnt have a SINGLE problem until i brought this car in for a general service... since then every few months something goes wrong.

Re: fml... jeep is dead... im stranded

Seems like whenever it goes to the shop something gets wrecked... Not saying to stop bringing it in for service, butttttt, sounds like you need to do it yourself or find a different shop.

Re: fml... jeep is dead... im stranded

The main reason I stay away from stealerships if at all possible. Good to hear about the warranty. Hopefully you'll get some new, free parts. Sucks the Jeep will be layed up for some time though.

Re: fml... jeep is dead... im stranded

The only time any of my Jeeps see the inside of a service station is during the annual safety/emmissions inspection. Even then I hand the guy a torque wrench set properly to the lugnut specs and demand that it be used when replacing any wheels that are removed. Oh and I will take one in to a local tranny/axle shop when I need work done on the differentials, cause that's one thing I've never been able to master. Other than that, there's nothing a Jeep or other service station can do better than me to maintain my Jeeps.

Years age in my maxima I got new tires from sears and I got home and went to take the wheels off to clean the inside of the rim and I couldn't get the tires off. They just hammered the lug nuts on with an impact gun. I took it back and was like you got 15 min to retorque these lugnuts.
