ON 9/24/2016 I WAS DRIVING IN FLORIDA GOING ON VACATION AND THE MOTOR (PENTASTAR V-6) STARTED MISFIRING. TOOK IT TO A JEEP DEALERSHIP IN FORT WALTON, FL AND WAS TOLD THAT IT NEED A TUNE UP. WAS CHARGED $308.67 FOR THE TUNE UP. DROVE THE VEHICLE ABOUT 10 MILES AND THE MISFIRING STARTED AGAIN. TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD IT NEEDED A NEW HEAD. THEY REPLACED THE HEAD AND WE TOOK THE VEHICLE AND STARTED BACK TO OUR CONDO AND IT STARTED MISFIRING AGAIN. WE LEFT THE NEXT DAY AND RETURNED TO OUR HOME IN WEST VIRGINIA. TOOK THE VEHICLE TO A DEALERSHIP HERE IN CHARLESTON, WV AND THEY SAID IT WAS A BAD COIL. WE WERE AGAIN CHARGED AND THE TOTAL WAS $279.27. IT APPEARS TO BE FIXED.
