How many times can it break down in a month.

I've got a 13 grand Cherokee v6 with just over 21k. My jeep has broken down on me 4 times now with in a month for the same issue. P0394 cam sensor problem. Had it to the dealer each time and they keep throwing more parts at it. First time in they replaced a coil pack, a connector and a can sensor. Second time they replaced the PCM and reprogram. Third time they say that there was a pinched wire and ran a new one and didn't even try to hide it. It looks like shit with a random blue wire showing towards the rear of the engine. And trip 4 they decided to replace a camshaft and another sensor. I've never owned a car that craps out every week. Granted I blame the service department and Chrysler for poor support. Should have been fixed the second or 3rd time at the most and I have a good feeling that check engine light will be on a 5th time next week. Has anyone else with the v6 had any thing similar like me.

I have a 14 v6 that keeps throwing error codes as well. It's so frustrating and I totally feel your pain.

sounds like you need to find a new dealership for service.

Re: How many times can it break down in a month.

Are you actually breaking down and needing a tow?

Thanks. Sad part is where I live the surrounding dealers all have shitty reviews.

Escalate your case. Call Chrysler customer service and give them hell. You won't get anywhere unless you're proactive about it.

I would sell that thing. Nothing sucks more than having a car that's constantly giving you troubles and a dealership that can't figure out shit, then on top of that a car that's already been rigged up by the dealership with shoddy work.

Re: How many times can it break down in a month.

Just out of curiosity, what is your build date?

It'll be shown on the manufacturer sticker, located on the left side front door.

July 2012 is the build date. And got case with Chrysler. Trying for a buy back. Last time the jeep was in the shop as per Chryslers engineers they put the camshaft in it and they don't even know how to fix it.
