AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT GOES ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY AFTER CAR IS STARTED. SPOKE TO CHRYSLER/JEEP AFTER CONSULTATION WITH LOCAL MECHANIC WHO IDENTIFIED THE ISSUE AS A DEFECTIVE CLOCK SPRING. THIS SAME ISSUE WAS ADDRESSED WITH CHRYSLER/JEEP WITH JEEP WRANGLER 2008 - 2010 WHICH USES THE SAME CLOCK SPRING (REFERENCE : NVS-212PCOR;PE11-019-AUGUST 5-2011) RESULTING IN EXTENSION OF WARRANTY TO 3 YEARS OR 150,000 MILES.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

11/3/2014 - CANAL WINCHESTER, OH
BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE USED. EACH OF THE TWO TIMES WE HAVE FILLED UP THE TANK WITH GAS THE TANK HAS OVERFLOWED SPILLING AN ESTIMATED PINT OF GAS OUT OF THE TANK AND DOWN THE EXTERIOR OF THE VEHICLE AND ONTO THE GROUND. EACH TIME GAS HAS SPILLED ONTO THE DRIVER AS WELL. RESEARCHING THIS ISSUE IT APPEARS THAT REPLACING THE GAS TANK RESOLVES THIS ISSUE. I FEEL THIS IS A DANGEROUS SAFETY ISSUE THAT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED WITH A RECALL. REF. SERVICE BULLETIN NO.: SB-14-003-13, NHTSA ID NUMBER: 10052148.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

11/3/2014 - GROVELAND, MA
HEAT DECIDED TO NOT WORK ON THE FIRST 30 DAY W/ SNOW AND ICE. PASSENGER VENTS ARE BLOWING LUKE WARM AIR, AND THE DRIVERS SIDE BLOWING COLD AIR. ALSO, NO AIR AT ALL COMING FROM THE BLOWER AT THE DRIVERS FEET. NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS AS I HAD READ 100'S OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE BLEND DOOR NOT OPERATING PROPERLY ON JEEPS OF ALL TYPES. THIS IS A $1000 FIT, AND THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THE BLEND DOOR. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE OUTRAGE!
