 A purchased 1993 jeep grand cherokee- the day i purchased this car from a local bristol auto dealer (king philip motors) the car stalled while shifting gears... this car is an automatic, however while driving a constant 70 mph on the highway, the car struggled to shift between first and second gears. it revved. there was a transmission leak that i discovered and in one day all the transmission fluid had leaked out of it. upon parking the car it stalled out and while idle the car would rev heavily and shake. driving home on the highway, (while in drive) i could not accelerate past 750 mph for fear of breakdown as the car would not go into a higher gear. the needle that shows the rpm was dancing wildly between second and third gear. *tr

 When shifting from park to reverse or drive the transmission doesn't always engage. you have to try several times. at 55-60 miles and hour on the freeway, the air conditioner blows warm air. you have to stop the vehicle and let it set before the air conditioner resumes. and the information module shows that the brake lights are out when they aren't. we have had it put on a machine to clear the module and it still flashed an incorrect message. when driving down the highway, and you press the gas to pass a vehicle it doesn't always go into high gear, it drags and you have to let off ot it and keep trying.

 #1- concerning rusted rotors. (recall 98v005000/front brake rotors). we purchased this vehicle used 9-16-97. shortly thereafter we discovered that the vehicle had corosion/rusted rotors. we were informed by the service department, that the rusted rotors were not covered by the extended warranty we purchased. that was 4/98. september of 2000 i discovered the recall while doing some research. this time i contacted bobette thomas at jim marsh service about the rusted rotars. she took the information and called me back later that day. i was informed that the recall did not affect my vehicle. we purchased it used and do not know where it originated. we believe the rusted rotars are a product of improper manufacturing processes. i am requesting that jeep repair or replace the defective parts and honor the recall. #2 since purchasing this used vehicle we have had repeated fuel injector problems. we have taken it to be serviced for fuel odors on 8 different occassions in the past 3 years. on three of those occassions we were told nothing was wrong. yet the smell continued. there is obviously a problem with this vehicle's fuel injector system. again my vehicle is experiencing intermitant fuel odors. it is no longer under warranty and we a failure rate as extensive as ours has been is not acceptable. i believe had the original problem that is causing this repeated failure, been diagnosed when initially taken to the dealership our warranty would have resolved the issue. i would like this problem addressed in it's entirety. #3 rear hatchback doorlocks and latch. 1-12-98 i reported a lock problem and the closure problems i had been having. although i was given a new keyless entry remote. the rear hatch has never closed or locked 100% of the time. i recently discovered this part is also under recall. i would like jeep to repair or replace the parts in question. #4 front axle vibration listed on due bill. never corrected.*ak

 93 jeep grand cherokee car fire (5/7/2001; about 4:15 pm)i have a story to relate; hopefully there might be something to learn from itmy wife and i were traveling to bwi to drop off our son so he could catch a plane back to chicago. a few miles before the i-695 n exit, we started smelling a burnt rubber or perhaps exhaust type of smell. my son was driving and i suggested he get in the outside lane and slow down to see of the smell got worse or went away. all the engine gauges read fine. as we were trying to decide what to do, the car suddenly took a couple of hard jerks and there was a loud bang. the engine was still running, but the car was coming to a quick stop. we were in the outside lane, but right at the i-695 exit so there were 2 more exit lanes on our right. we couldn't get to the shoulder. the car came to stop quickly; it didn't appear to want to coast even when i suggested my son move the transmission lever to neutral. all of a sudden there was a lot of smoke coming out from under the rear of the car. at first i hesitated to get out of the car for fear of being hit by other traffic and we couldn't see to our rear because of the smoke. when i realized there was no traffic coming past us, i got out of the rear seat and looked under the car; there were flames. i yelled at my wife and son to get out of the car and we all went across to the shoulder of the road. the jeep burned totally. . later in speaking to the fire captain, he told us that the rear differential of the car had been cherry red. they had put 700 gallons on the car to put out the fire and cool of the differential. it appears the differential had failed (i believe it was the input bearing where the drive shaft connects), obviously gotten very hot, and locked up causing the drive shaft to break off at the differential (that end of the drive shaft was resting on the ground). when the things started breaking, there must have been some rupture of a fuel line or the fuel tank; then there was fire.*a
