Thumbs down New trailhawk. Rough start.

Just acquired new 2017 jgc trailhawk this week with 5.7. Steering wheel heat shutting off after few mins and car stalled in intersection today. Very disappointed on these issues. Only 160 miles into vehicle. Thoughts on issues. Thank you.

Re: New trailhawk. Rough start.

Take it to your dealer and have him diagnose and fix it. There are threads out here dealing with the heated wheel shutting off issue. Here's one...

Re: New trailhawk. Rough start.

Took vehicle to dealer today. Not good. Can not fix heated steering wheel since FCA does recognize as problem. Had 2106 Summit before never had issue which was explained. Explained the options in the posts.

Also can not fix stalling issue since there are no codes. Have t wait till it stalls again I guess. Hopefully not while on the freeway.

Oh well. Hope for the best.

Re: New trailhawk. Rough start.

Good news found root cause of stalling issue today. The throttle box was bad and was replaced once dealer was able to identify codes by replicating in a test drive scenario. TG

Corrective actions on steering wheel heat issue will also be handled with an expected billeting by Jeep in mid quarter.

Kori all set with your team. My issues have been logged. Thank you
