problem #6

My vehicle went in for a routine oil change in March of this year. Since then my engine light has contributed to come on. I have taken my vehicle to the dealership I purchased the new vehicle from to figure out the issue five times over the course of this summer. They have claimed to repair components of the vehicle, yet the light is still on. I do not feel safe driving in a vehicle that a service department can not figure out what's going on.

The vehicle started by itself while parked. The ignition had been turned off and keys removed for several hours. This has happened twice. I discovered the vehicle running, doors locked and ignition in the off position. To turn off the enginei inserted the key, turned it to the on position and then off. This occurred once in my garage, causing carbon monoxide exhaust to enter the living quarters. It happened a second time while parked away from home, with the keys removed. The vehicle was stationary, because it was placed in park when the engine was turned off.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 5,600 miles
See police report and attached pictures. Driving slow on a backstreet at less than 25 miles P\H. brand new 2017 stock Jeep Wrangler sport. Less than 6,000 miles. I am now a horrified woman that knows nothing about why my new Jeep Wrangler catches on fire out of no where while in motion! once we saw fire flames, smoke and red oil on fire coming out from engine area and below the vehicle drivers side, we quickly stopped on residential street. Me, my 70 year old mother who is sick and my 24 year old autistic daughter had to jump out of this fire trap vehicle screaming and crying!!! this was an unexplained and spontaneous fire!!! why" no reason behind it and nothing that I did to cause it. The fire was luckily and quickly extinguished by good samaritans and city workers near by. The fire department was called and showed up along with police officer. Fire department told me to write a complaint on these vehicles because they have had to respond to many Jeep Wrangler fires in the last 10 years. I was shocked and horrified, how can this be??? how bad this could have turn out to be if city workers where not near by with a fire extinguisher". Jeep needs to be investigated. Please protect the consumers and Jeep Wrangler owners who are unaware of these fire traps. This is serious and dangerous fire issues on Jeep Wrangler. I pray you start an instigation and recall so that nobody else has to go through this horrific experience! updated 8/3/18
