While driving the vehicle on a highway in AZ the front panel of the slidingsky sunroof flew off the roof. Have been issues with this roof since purchased brand new in nh. Had brought it to the dealership at least twice previously for ongoing rattling, incomplete closure and excessive wind noise from this roof. Eventually, they supposedly replaced the roof unit but the issues have continued ultimately resulting in this latest issue of the front roof piece literally blowing off the vehicle. It has been brought into a dealership in Arizona for repair and we expressed our concern over this potentially being a hazard to other drivers on the toad that could result in injury to others. The dealership expressed no opinion or concern other than they would replace the piece that came off the vehicle

The seal between the window and the top of the driver door has been replaced twice by the dealer. The seal continues to crack allowing wind and water to enter the cabin. The sound is loud enough to drown out the radio and is distracting. This occurs while the vehicle is in motion.

On September 24th I was driving and the floor mat got pushed forward and wrapped around the exposed steering column. I had to stop the car in the middle of a busy street to get out and manually pull the floor mat out of the steering column because I was unable to steer the car even to the side of the road. Then, January 15th I was driving through the imperial dunes area on the way to California and the hard plastic strip that covers the roof rack hardware (I do not have a roof rack so Jeep put a strip in there to cover the hardware) broke in half and flew off my vehicle while going 70 miles an hour into the traffic behind me.
