ENGINE

7/17/2015 - PITTSBURGH, PA
I WAS DRIVING MY 2012 JEEP PATRIOT ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN SIMULTANEOUSLY, THE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL LIGHT STARTED BLINKING RED, MY CAR STARTED TO JERK FORWARD, AND LOST POWER. THIS REOCCURRED SEVERAL TIMES ON THE WAY TO GET IT LOOKED AT. EACH TIME IT HAPPENED, I HAD TO SHUT THE VEHICLE OFF, WAIT A FEW MINUTES, AND THEN RESTART. I TOOK IT TO A JEEP DEALER AND WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING AT IT, THE GUY SAID IT WOULD BE ABOUT $600 TO FIX (EVEN THOUGH I STILL HAVE POWER TRAIN WARRANTY). THIS TO ME LOOKS LIKE THIS IS A REOCCURRING PROBLEM THAT JEEP IS AWARE OF, BUT IS NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT. LUCKILY EACH TIME THIS HAPPENED, I WAS ABLE TO PULL OVER AND AVOID AN ACCIDENT, OTHERS MIGHT NOT BE SO LUCKY. UNTIL THIS PROBLEM IS RESOLVED, MY JEEP IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

7/8/2015 - SCHAUMBURG , IL
A NOTIFICATION CAME ON SAYING GAS CAP, A WEEK LATER CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. I WENT FOR THE DIAGNOSTIC IT READ TROUBLE CODE P0456. WHICH IS AN EVAP SYSTEM LEAK DETECTED. THERE ISN'T A POSSIBLE CAUSE FOR THIS. REPORTED FIXES ARE REPLACED EVAPORATIVE SYSTEM INTEGRITY MONITOR (ESIM) ASSEMBLY OR REPLACE THE FUEL FILLER CAP. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER AND THEY WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING BECAUSE I WAS OVER 36,000 MILES ( I WAS UNDER THE THREE YEAR MARK). I'VE REPLACED THE GAS CAP, BUT I STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM, WHICH IS A NOTICEABLE DECREASE IN GAS MILEAGE AND ACCELERATION. I HAVE AN EXTENDED WARRANTY BUT IT DOESN'T COVER ANYTHING RELATED TO EMISSIONS. ...UPDATED 09/28/15

WHEELS

6/5/2015 - NEW SHARON, IA
WHILE TURNING INTO A PARKING SPOT THE BOLT IN THE BALL JOINT BROKE CAUSING DAMAGE TO THE AXLE ,BALL JOINT ,AND A-ARM. AFTER HAVING THE JEEP LOADED ON A FLAT BED AND TAKEN TO A DEALER FOR REPAIR THE MECHANICS TOLD ME I WAS LUCKY IT HAPPENED IN A PARKING LOT RATHER THAN ON THE BYPASS I HAD JUST DRIVEN AT WHICH THE SPEED LIMIT IS 70. IF IT HAD HAPPENED THERE IT MOST LIKELY WOULD HAVE BEEN A VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT BEING THE JEEP WOULD HAVE BEEN UNCONTROLLABLE. HAS THERE BEEN ANY TALKS OF A RECALL FOR THIS PROBLEM ? I AM HEARING THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT HAPPENS A LOT WITH THE FACTORY INSTALLED PARTS BUT THE AFTER MARKET PARTS SEEM TO BE OK SO FAR. I AM SURE YOU ARE THINKING IT MUST BE MY DRIVING AND OFF ROADING BUT I ONLY DRIVE PAVED ROADS AND HAVE NEVER HAD A TICKET IN THE 34 YEARS I HAVE BEEN DRIVING.
