I have a 2014 Jeep Patriot that I've owned for three years. Purchased used, after an accident, was looking to get a safe dependable car - HA!
Within six months, the ignition control unit went out - driving along and suddenly my car won't go over 30 miles an hour. At the time, this was a covered repair. Otherwise, I'm looking at $600. Strike one.
Fast forward to a year later. Again, I am driving, and the car won't go over 30 miles per hour. Can't be the same thing, but YES, it is. Luckily, we are "covered" that the part was still under the two year part and labor (by two months). Should have been a warning. Strike two.
So now...suddenly car isn't moving. I'm thinking it's the ignition module again. So, tow it to the dealer. Great news! Not the ignition module, it's the TRANSMISSION THAT HAS GONE OUT ! This time it's a $4000 REPAIR. AND the rack and pinion steering is leaking, which is 'only' another $2000 to be repaired.
I contact Jeep- after reading on the internet HUNDREDS of complaints about this transmission issue. No dice. Their explanation? Since the car was purchased used, and is (get this) 10K over warranty, they won't cover it. Although they did tell me it WAS a PART FAILURE, nothing we had done to cause this problem.
Somebody tell me how a car that is four years old can have this happen and there's no recourse. This is just awful. Beware folks, don't buy Jeep!!!
