At Low Speed Turns, Left And Right, Ie In A Parking Lot Or Turning At An Intersection, Popping And Groaning From Front Suspension/steering Assembly. Very Audible And Ratcheting Feel Can Be Felt In The Frame And Steering Wheel. Not An Issue When Driving Straight Or At Speed. First Trip To Dealer…could Not Duplicate. Next Day, After Contacting jeep Consumer Service, The jeep Was Taken Back To The Dealer And I Test Drove The Vehicle In The Parking Lot For The Service Consultant. The Popping/groaning Noise Was Evident In Every Turn And The Car Was Taken Into The Service Area For Suspected “suspension” Problem. Next Day Contact With Dealer…they Think It Is Either The Axles Or Transmission. Called jeep And They Called Dealership. I Was Then Told By jeep They Were Replacing The Axles. Subsequent Msg From Service Department Confirmed They Were Changing The Right Front Axle But It Was Back Ordered. Now Two Days…no jeep, No Transportation, No Loaner. I Am A Master Army Aviator With Thirty Years Of Flying. I Know When A Machine Is Broke Or About To Be.

2014 jeep cherokee Limited, 6 Cylinder, Purchased On April 21, 2014 With 321 Miles On It. There Was A Slight Shimmy In The Front End That They Told Us Was A Flat Spot In The Tire That Would Work Itself Out And The Transmission Would Have To “learn” My Way Of Driving. On May 30,tt 2217 Miles I Brought The Vehicle Back Tot He Dealer For Hesitation In The Transmission And Shuttering And Grinding In The Front End. The jeep Has Been Back To The Dealer 6 Times For Shuttering And Grinding In The Front End When Proceeding From Stop Or Low Speed After Being On The Highway At A Constant Speed For Several Miles. Shuttering Can Happen When Turning Or Going Straight. I Have Also Reported Several Transmission Issues To Them With The Cars Inability To Downshift Going Up A Hill And Or To Up Shift When Coasting Down Hills. At One Time As I Was Entering The Highway, I Tried To Accelerate To 55 And The Car Would Not Go Over 30 Mph. I’m Glad There Were Two Lanes Or I Would Have Been Rear Ended. Car Was Very Jerky When Proceeding From A Stop And Would Often Suddenly Jerk Forward After A Hesitation To Even Move. Car Has Been Reprogrammed 3 Times, Had A New Valve Body Installed, A New Transmission Installed And Two New Axles Installed Two Days After The Axles Were Installed The Shuttering And Hesitation In Transmission Started Again. Dealer Has Failed To Get Back To Me.

Front End Axle Boot Leak And Subsequent Shake/vibration In Front End On Acceleration And Right Turns Mostly. Went Into “limp Mode” Upon Driving During Low Speeds On More Than One Occasion With Check Engine And Service Transmission Lights Coming On. No Good Computer History Stored In Engine Computer To Determine Problem Even Happened. Shake Has Continued Even With Replacement Of Both Front Axles. Limp Mode And Warning Lights Haven’t Happened Since Transmission Wiring Harness And Transmission Computer Were Replaced . Has Been Serviced By Two Local Dealerships For Over A Month And Have Had Customer Service Contact With Chrysler/jeep Customer Service About Issues Since Transmission Problems. Engaged In Lemon Law Action Because Purchase Dealer Has Stated On More Than One Occasion That The Shake Is A Characteristic Of The 2014 Model Of jeep cherokee, “all Of Them Have It On Their Lot” So There Is Nothing To Fix. I Just Don’t Want This To Be A Larger Issue With More Vehicles Involved So I Am Reporting My Problems.

I Have A 2001 jeep cherokee And Began To Notice The Problem Toward The End Of 2012 Or First Of 2013. When I Would Reach A Speed Of Around 55 Mph, The Front Wheels/steering Wheel Would Begin To Vibrate, Shake Or Whatever You Want To Call It. It Is A Violent Vibration That Is Pretty Scary And Feels Like You Cannot Control The Vehicle. It Subsides If You Immediately Slow Way Down. The Problem Has Gotten Progressively Worse. It Now Would Start Around 45 Miles An Hour Or So, Depending On How Smooth Or Bumpy The Road Is. The Bumpier, The More Easily In Begins The Wobble. When I Recently Researched It Online, It Is Called The “death Wobble”. I Have Never Put In “non-conforming” Parts, Nor Have I Used My Vehicle Off-road Or Abused It. I Have Maintained My Vehicle And It Has About 160,000 Miles On It. I Had Just Taken It In To See If The Shaking Can Be Repaired, And The Person Working On It, Replaced Almost Every Part Associated With The Front Suspension Etc. In What He Thought Had Corrected The Problem, It Has Only Moderately Reduced The Symptoms. So Far, About $800.00 Worth Of Repairs That Have Not Corrected The Problem. I Don’t Think I Want Any Of My Tax Dollars To Bail Out Chrysler Corporation If They Do Not Fix The Problem At No Cost To The Consumer. I Saw Their Forced “acknowledgement” Of The Problem And I Also Saw That They Will Not Pick Up The Cost Of Trying To Fix The Defect. Very Disappointed And Will Not Purchase Another Chrysler Product. *tr

Since The First Day Of Ownership Of New jeep cherokee 10/3/1999, There Has Been A Grinding Sound Coming From The 4-wheel Drive Transfer Case. Selling Dealer Replaced Transfer Case Lubricant. Mechanic Said Chrysler Used “substandard” Lubricant. Grinding Continued. Repeated Attempts For Selling Dealer (begnal Motors) To Fix Were Not Successful. Differential Replaced At 9585 Miles By Sawyer Motors In Saugerties New York. Metal Shavings Found In Transfer Case. Warping In Gear Bolt Holes. Dealer Said Transfer Case Should Be “pristine” At 9,000 Miles. Grinding Returned At 13,000. Worse On Deceleration And During Rain. jeep Zone Rep. Says Chrysler Is Aware Of The Problem. Doesn’t Know How To Fix It. Even Said Problem Is “normal”. This Exact Problem Reported Several Times By Ntsha In 1999 Model. On 6/19/2000 Chrysler Rep. Wants To Replace Entire Transfer Case. Value Of Vehicle Has Been Reduced. Will Lose 5,000 If I Sell Now. Unsure Of Safety Issues. Chrysler Customer Support Is Shameful. They Have Lost Records Of My Calls. However, Chrysler Rep Explained If 4-wheel Drive Lever Is Placed In The Wrong Position, Damage Can Occur. Sawyer Motors Owner Bob Siracasano Says He Drove Another 2000 Model That Didn’t Make The Sound. Zone Rep. Peter Hewitt Says He Cannot Guarantee That Once The Transfer Case Is Replaced, The Sound Will Not Go Away. This Unacceptable. This Is A Defect. Do You Agree? I Have Had A Loaner Car For 21 Days. I Spent $24,000 And Now Know Chrysler Has A Trackrecord Of Using Poor Quality Parts, Bad Customer Support And Uncooperative Dealerships. Consumers Need The Nhtsa To Stand Up For Us! Please Investigate. Thank You.*ak

I Have A 200 jeep cherokee Sport, 4wd. I Also Had A 1996 jeep cherokee Sport, 4wd. Both Have The Same 2 Problems. #1 Is A Broken Drivers Seat. The Bracket Is Too Small And Splits Near The Bolt Holes. You Can’t Drive Like This, The Current One (2000) Started With A Small Noise When I Was Exiting The Car. The Next Day It Let Loose On A Bumpy Road On A Corner. I Didn’t Think Much Of It The First Time With The 1996, Which I Traded For The 2000, But Since It Has Happened Again, I Did Some Research And It Is A Common Problem. I Stumbled Onto This Site: Http://vlane.com/poll/30/2001-jeep-grand-cherokee-has-your-driver-side-front-seat-broken-on-this-jeep Problem #2, And More Serious Is A Huge Wobble, Shimmy, Shake Problem At Around 50 Mph. So Much So That You Feel As If The Car Is Going To Be Thrown Off The Road Or Flip. Also This Problem Developed On My 96 jeep Before I Traded It For This One, And Now Has Started On This 200 jeep, So Again Seeing A Pattern, I Did More Research And Found More People With This Problem. Here Is Just One Site: Http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f0e6f51/0 Please Help! These Are Safety Issues Not To Mention Possible Design Flaws That Are Costly To Repair. Thank You. *tr

My jeep First Started To Shake Violently When I Was Exiting Onto An Off-ramp. I Pulled Off The Road; It Was Awful. I Took It To A Repair Shop And They Could Not Find Anything Wrong As The Issue Did Not Occur Again Right Away. However, As Time Went On It Did. It Now Happens Rather Frequently And It Is Terrifying Every Time. I Have To Get It Repaired (new Track Bar) Before Something Tragic Happens. Please Help! This Is A Known Issue And Yet No Recall Has Been Issued Yet. By The Time One Is, Due To Accidents, I Will Hopefully Have Mine Fixed. Therefore, This Complaint Is My Plea On Behalf Of Other jeep Owners. When This Happens, It Honestly Feels Like The Front Wheels Will Likely Fly Off; It’s Rather Disturbing For Those In The Vehicle And Those Driving Nearby In Other Vehicles. *tr

Recently I Have Noticed That At Speeds Of Around 50-60 Mph My jeep cherokee Begins To Violently Shake When Brakes Are Applied Or After Passing Over A Bump. While Researching This Online I Have Determined That It Is Similar To Other Complaints That Are Being Characterized As “death Wobble.” This Is A Very Dangerous Condition And Appears To Be Directly Contributed To Faulty Front End Component Design On jeep cherokees/wranglers. I Have Found That If I Am Not Braced And Prepared For This, That This Could Easily Escalate Into A Very Unsafe Condition Resulting In A Possible Accident/crash. While Researching Online, It Appears That This Is A Very Common Condition Among jeep Owners. Thank You For Your Time And Consideration On This Matter. *tr

The Entire Rear Axle Was Replaced At The Advice Of jeep Service. They Claimed That The Wheel Bearings Would Not Not Seat In The Axle As The "races" Were Worn Beyond The Point Of Holding Them In. Because I Needed The Vehicle For My Business, I Had No Choice But To Have Them Repair It While They Had It Apart As I Did Not Have Time To Do The Job Myself. It Was A Three Week Wait For Parts As It Was. Then I Noticed The "musty" Smell. Upon Futher Investigation I Discovered The Entire jeep Was Saturated Under The Carpets On Both Sides. Mold Everywhere. No Wonder My Allergies Were Killing Me. I’ve Since Gutted The Vehicle And Bleached The Entire Floor Areas. I Am Now In The Process Of Coming Up With A Solution To The Problem So I Can Pass It On To Other jeep Owners. Chrysler Has A Bulletin Out On A Procedeure To Clean The A/c Drain But It Does Not Work As It Comes Back Each Year. I’ve Found That Gluing Nylon Screening In The Air Intake Under The Hood Keeps All Of The Debris That Clogs This Drain Tube Out Of The Heater Box. Now I Am Working On A Way To Stop The Water From Running Back Into The Dash Area Through The Firewall Where It Drains Out Into The Frame. Not One Dealership Would Talk To Me About This. I Know That They Know About It Because Of The Bulletin. Also, I Found That The "vents" Behind The Rear Fixed Glass On The cherokee Have A Small Holding Cup And A Tube Which The Water That Enters That Area Drains Into, What I Couldn’t Believe Was That It Drains Into The Rear Of The Vehicle, Inside, Which Results In The Entire Rear Of The Vehicle Becoming Wet Under The Rear Rug. This Problem Is Solved By Punching A Hole Through The Floor And Extending The Factoy Drain Tube Through The Floor So The Water Drains Outside The Vehicle Where It Belongs. I Am A Car Buff And Pretty Knowledgeable About Repairs And I Could Not Believe My Eyes When I Saw These Design Flaws. They Are Blatantly Obvious.
