2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
>1yr. old-rotors have been replaced
Jeep has been recalled potential fire
hazard - transmission jumps, lunges,
bangs into gear at almost any speed.
Dealership said this is normal for
electronic transmission. BS. Safety is
a major concern when a 4000 pound
vehicle lunges into gear at speeds
around 60 mph. DiamlerChrysler has
called this violent jerking motion
a "burp" and a "bump". Market value is
adversely affected by this defect. They
tried to fix the defect one time by
installing spider gears that did
nothing. After that they decided it
wasn't a problem after all. Dummies,
why try to fix something if nothing is
wrong? DO NOT BUY THE NEWER JEEPS
I'd liked the look of the vehcile but
now I'm so disgusted, I hate to see it.
Recall these Jeeps before more people
are killed. Do the right thing and
stop looking at bottom line. You will
earn the respect of your customers.
