Failure of 2004 Jeep grand cherokee transmission at 38,000 miles
Posted by on
I purchased my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee new in 2003. I am retired, and do very little driving. In June, 2011, at 38,000 miles, my transmission went out and it was necessary for me to completely replace it. The cost was $2,459.93. I feel this reflects a inferior product manufactured by DaimlerChrysler. A transmission should not go out after 38,000 miles. I have religiously maintained my vehicle at all times. I have bought my first and last Jeep - for sure.

You're right - that is premature. I looked for 5 minutes, and I couldn't find that this was a common problem. In fact I didn't see any transmission problems.

Isn't there a 10 year 100,000 mile guarantee?

Ouch! Missed by less than a year. That hurts. Good question, o_f.

>36000 miles and 4000 dollar repair
Posted by on
I have a 2007 Grand Cherokee. The engine light came on. Took it to Jeep dealer and I was less than one month outside of regular warranty. Vehicle has less than 36000 miles. I was told that it would cost nearly 4000 dollars to tear apart engine to repair a swirl valve that had gone bad. The swirl valve has to do with emissions so the car does not pollute the air and complies with EPA. The emissions warranty is supposed to be good for 80000 miles or 8 years. Neither dealer or corporate office will honor the warranty as emissions.

Trying to say that it is the engine. I will now drive with billboards on my Jeep urging people not to purchase one.

Biggest mistake of my life. What a nightmare.

The warranty documentation should have some better detail on exactly what is covered as an "emission." You may want to dig it out and see if there's any language that can help you in your, um, discussions with Jeep. Good luck.

You said it yourself, it is outside of warranty.
