Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Replace left side brake light bulbs 3 times in two months. Then took it to the dealership and had them repair it three more times before the electrical problem behind it was found and repaired correctly. I could have been pulled over with as many times the brake lights were not operating or been rear ended and injured as a result of the bad system Chrysler had.
