Thumbs down Very Unhappy with 2014 Jeep Cherokee

My car stalls randomly (approximately every 1000 miles) while I'm driving. There is NO warning. This last time the car stopped when I was traveling 70 miles per hour on HWY 5 - just died right in the lane!! It has also stalled at busy intersections, on onramps, huge hills etc. I finally - after 10 visits to the jeep repair shop - understand from the dealership that the car needs a new engine to fix the problem. BUT they say this is acceptable under jeep guidelines and won't pay for the new engine... I've put over 20 quarts of expensive synthetic oil in my car over the past year and never know if the car will be safe to drive. This is the WORST car I've ever had and I'm disgusted with Jeep.

By the way - I just found out it needs a fifth recall - part still in development (as always). When I asked the woman who told me of this new development, she couldn't explain what the risk is while we wait for the new part. In 2 1/2 years of owning this piece of crap car, I've had five recalls and over a dozen stalls... I'm so angry and bummed.

It may have something to do with the start/stop function. Do you have this on your Jeep? If so, disable it each time you drive and see if the engine stops. Has your Dealer checked for any codes? This does not sound like an engine replacement problem to me; it has to be something in the electronics.

this forum periodically gets fake trolls who make up false accounts, a small percentage of some of these new accounts are from people who do not even own the car. after a real jeep representative comes on the trolls tend to disappear. be skeptical of people who make claims of burning through in 20 qts of synthetic oil in a year. Some one is now just claiming getting angry and bummed after 2 years of dangerous driving, 10 separate repairs , all still under powertrain warranty but says the dealer wont fix it under warranty... , it bothers me when trolls waste our time

Yep, would definitely recommend that the mods watch this one, way to suspect. Clue one, HWY 5? Wrong vernacular for a certain road on the West Coast. Clue two, Jeep repair shop? Wrong vernacular for warranty repairs.

Definitely calling shenanigans, this many problems people search and find our forum and start asking for help, not complaining and a real person will ask way before 2.5 years of bad ownership.

that stinks. sometimes you have to take the hit & move on. meaning the next time it's fixed and running right, trade it & be done with it. I did that with my Subaru, & never looked back
