Re: Really?!?!...

I bet if the Stoner who was responsible for tightening the earth strap was not so wasted on the production line, the problems would be far less

I've never seen anything like this.
I think one thing you have to look at is Jeep owners are loyal and they tend to post everything about their vehicles. If you look at a lot of these other forums people don't post that much good or bad. I own a Ford Fusion that I use for transportation back and forth to work. I have it because it gets good gas milege and I drive 35 miles one way to work and I don't want to run up the miles on my jeep. I have looked at the fusion forum a couple times but never posted and it seems almost no one else with a fusion has either. Its because I really don't care about it I drive it to work and home and its fine but to me its just a cheap car. When I first got it the trans would slip from 2 to 3rd when cold this was a known issue they called it shift flare. I looked at the forum and a couple others had posted about it but I never did. The dealer showed me something from Ford saying it was normal with this trans when cold. So I just took it knowing it does this once a day when cold and dealt with it. Had this been my Jeep doing this I would have been posting about it on this forum. So I think if you look at a lot of those other fourms there isn't much volume.

Haha... mere coincidence, right? No, Jeep has a MAJOR issue here. It almost completely ruined my vehicle and others here as well. The random stalling on the road was my issue as well... Hopefully fixed now... EDIT 2013.05.14 - NOT FIXED... I am Lemon-ing my car...

I'm sure Jeep is learning right now, and hopefully firing whoever is responsible for the bad ground issues on a bunch of our vehicles. I certainly would feel more secure buying one produced three months from now than one that was manufactured a month ago.

LOL -- I should have read this whole thread first because I just posted that as well... That pretty near killed my vehicle and was certainly responsible for killing a few computer modules in my case.

Yeah but the bad ground is few and far between. As i and others said, if it were commonplace or even remotely commonplace it would be all over publicly, not something only seen on enthusiast message boards.

Re: Really?!?!...

I'm sure that most of these people building this Jeep really don't give a @% $#. More money and less work is generally all most of these people care about. Get rid of the stupid unions and start holding these idiots accountable. The quality would increase as you got rid of the dead weight.

Re: Really?!?!...

Problem with a grounding issue is that it could appear in many different ways, many of which will look to the system like a shutdown and not necessarily set a code.

This is where CJFs computers may be just starting to see a pattern. With what has been happening for any code (and there are many) referencing high voltage, low voltage, or loss of communications I would suggest checking all grounds just to be sure.

ps don't be so fast to blame workers, it could be a robot with an issue.

Re: Really?!?!...

Jeep is listed by JD Power as having 178 problems per 100 vehicles. So either 100% of all Jeep's have at least one problem or another percentage of vehicles have a lot of problems.

So 50% of vehicles having a problem is definitely plausible, it just depends on what and how severe the problem is. I know I can find a problem with any new car made today, whether it is a trim issue or mechanical. Nothing is ever perfect.

Re: Really?!?!...

I just want everyone to know that it has been 4 days and even though the tech heard the issues i have with my jeep in a matter of minutes they have still yet to tell me what the problems are and they are giving me the old "ill call you as soon as i know something, i promise!" speech. since im sure im going to be asked what the issues are here is the list.

1)rear clunk noise (just had rear suspension replaced TSB)
2)mis aligned rear hatch (getting fixed for the second time)
3)left side interior panel noise going over bumps (louder than radio)
4)under steering wheel noise/creak (louder than radio)
5)popping noise in front end when making a turn in either direction


as to some of the comments about not being loyal to the brand because we are posting about it, i am very loyal that's why im not trading it to another brand. I love my jeep but these problems are ridiculous and after the dealer stated to me that they are having problems with the 14 even though it does not involve ALL 14s apparently it is effecting a lot and ive now spoken with two dealers in ny and 2 in nj about the issues and the 14s.

Again the point of the post was to express my experience with my jeep and the dealership i dealt with to repair it.
