You are in the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee
What is this discussion about?
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Aug 24, 2013 (3:12 pm)
I think we need to file a class action lawsuit against Chrysler. I found out that the problem with my Jeep 2011 Grand Cherokee is the dreaded TPIM. This has gotten ridiculous. As everyone else has noted, I have to wait six to eight weeks. We need answers. Chrysler has given me the run around.

Did you find out yet that it is your TIPM and you won't get the new part till mid to end of September if your lucky?

Any owners out there as a sad jeep owner that want's to take on the mighty giant Chrysler? I think we would have better luck if we all write to the National Transportation Safety Board and keep telling everyone you know about this problem on all the social media networks. CarComplaints dot com is loaded with these stories.

I've been without my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee since July 12th. I'm being told that there are over 25,000 TIPMs on backorder. Supposedly the company that makes the TIPM (it is not Chrysler that makes it) is going bankrupt and Chrysler does not own the rights to manufacture the part. It's such a shame. Such a fabulous car up until this point and now I'm just disgusted with it!

Agreed. All around. I had no problems until this. Does anyone have any update on the backorder? My new ship date is now 9/10/13. The dealership wrote up my service ticket on 7/25 and I haven't had my Jeep since. Sounds to me like Chrysler won't do anything about this since they don't make the part but what are they going to do for their customers who paid good money for their cars?!?!

They don't care but it's pretty clear it's out of Jeep's hands right now. The part is on backorder and not made Chrysler. Without a warranty Jeep will not do anything. I am calling Corporate to start hollering at someone who will listen b/c the service dept can't help anyway.

The ship dates they are telling us mean nothing. My jeep has been at the shop since July 12th and they have given me 4 different ship dates. Everytime it gets close to the ship date, they revise it. My ship date was also Sept 10 but now they are saying its September 19. I'm sure in another week or so they will give me a totally new date!
#1101 of 1240 Class Action Lawsuit!
Aug 26, 2013 (7:02 am)
There are enough of us on just this thread to get a class action lawsuit started. I'm sure there are hundreds of others that have this problem that are not on Edmunds. Let's sue Chrysler and force them to fix our vehicles or replace them with new ones. This is absurd! It's their fault that they chose to use a defective part made by a substandard company and we are the ones that are having to pay for it, either directly (those without warranties), or by not having transportation or by putting ourselves at risk of getting stranded every time we go anywhere.
Does anyone know how to get the ball rolling on a lawsuit?<

I am having the SAME problems with my Jeep, and am at a stand still. One person tells me I HAVE to take it to a dealership (30 miles away), and another says to try a couple of different things. I need to get the thing fixed so I'm not having to borrow a friend's car!
My car was having trouble starting for a couple of weeks, and finally wouldn't start at all. It seemed as if it wasn't getting fuel, so I took it in and had the air filter changed (which was dirty), and the fuel injectors cleaned out. It started okay for a day, and then BAM...wouldn't start at all. Friends came over and replaced the battery (which I discovered was inside the car and underneath the passengers seat!!), and it started right up! I drove it all evening and didn't have a single problem with anything! The next morning I came out to go to work, and it is completely dead again!!! Ugh..... Where do I go from here?

Same issue here w/ our 2011. Some days it was start, but then it just stopped and the battery was wearing down overnight. We were also told August 22 for a TIPM but it has not come in yet. We've had the car at the dealer since the end of July. Before that we had it at a local repair shop starting on July 3, who ended up replacing both fuel pumps and the battery ($2,000+). They finally had it towed to the dealer. Chrysler would NOT provide a rental car because we are out of warranty, so we also spent $800+ on a rental. We finally ended up buying a Toyota 4Runner because we just can't be without 2 cars and the rental was too expensive. We're hoping we can sell the GC if/when the part comes in. We are beyond upset with Chrysler and can't believe that a part on national back order is not a recall. I've see this issue goes beyond GC. A number of Wrangler posts were talking about it also.
