Grand Cherokee

My Jeep Cherokee 2012 Jet model went in for its 120,000 service yesterday and I was advised the rack and pinion is leaking and that I will need to have it replaced and the cost would be $6k-$7K. The car has never been off road and I was been working from home since Covid March 2020 in Vic. How long can I drive it around with the leak and has anyone else experienced this issue and what was the cost please.

Grand Cherokee WH (2005-2010)

My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee WH has developed a fault in the ignition immobiliser which means it mostly refuses to start. (Runs great once it does randomly fire) Ordered parts 3 months ago through Jeep and one had to come from USA. Now been told there were none in stock and it has to be manufactured and may not come through until well into 2021. Any one have any options re how to get the car on the road reliably again. (I have had Jeeps for 20 years now to tow our horse float. So it is risky to head out with the horses on board if the car is not functioning properly.)

We love our 2020 Grand Jeep Overland which is diesel. I personally wouldn’t buy a v8 as are known fuel guzzlers. Ours is not expensive on the open road and not bad around town either.
As for the warranty department that’s a whole new question. Can’t say we’ve been happy there.

So what is the problem with the warranty department when it comes to jeeps. I’ve heard some bad issues is it true.

My 2011 stalls when petrol is below 1/4 tank and going up hill.
Changed fields filters, saddle tank and I think from memory pumps.
Anyone got any other ideas. Happened 4 times now after the above process of elimination and I am all out of ideas.

Probably somewhere down the line, someone has installed the fuel supply and return line onto the wrong terminals as the return line is always shorter. I have seen inexperienced mechanics commonly make this mistake. This could be either mixed up on either the engine side or tank side depending on the cars setup. Let know if the hose swap doesn't fix your problem as i would be extremely surprised.

Hi John.
That makes a lot of sense to me.
Thank you so much. I will get my mechanic to take a look and let you know for sure.

Grand Cherokee WK (2010-2021)

The rear shock absorbers on my 2017 Overland are leaking and need replacing. The car has travelled 59,000km on sealed roads, no towing, no off road. Seems to be a manufacturers fault in my view. I’ve never had to replace shock absorbers so early in any car I’ve owned. Is anyone else having this problem? I’ve written to FCA and waiting for a response. I’m not happy about replacing the shocks at my expense.

Given my recent experience with Jeep i.e. totally blown motor on a 2016 Grand Cherokee diesel, I'd be hesitant to recommend any of their products. Especially seeing 2012 through 2014 was considered to be a problematic time for their products. The dealer networks seem good, but you can only put some much lipstick on a pig

I owned a 2011 for 5 years that was why I bought a 2017. You need a 2014 to be throughly checked by a motoring club before you buy. Do not expect support from FCA, they put it all back to their dealers, and really do not care.

I know this post is old but for those who don't know !!Looks like someone led you astray ..The overlands have a HIGH OUTPUT 4.7 Motor in them . The others have a power tech motor ..lower HP and are different ,, Also different hookups depending on years .You can make them work but the sensors are different. the fuel injectors are different ,different pistons,different cam shafts . different heads ..
