Vehicle2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI bought my Jeep used last year with 24,000 miles on it. Up until now it has been absolutely wonderful. However,a few weeks ago I started experiencing loss of acceleration when turning. Then this week, I took a left turn and it would not accelerate at all. I ended up rolling to the other side of the road and was luckily able to pull over. Today I spent $950.00 replacing the electronic shift module. The car has currently only 37,000 miles which of course is just out of warranty. I am very disappointed to learn after the fact that this is a common problem. There needs to be a recall on this vehicle. This is a serious safety hazard.

I bought a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee from CarMax in VaBeach last June with about 25K miles. Two days ago, I was driving in traffic and suddenly I lost power. I could floor the accelerator and the car would barely move forward. All the other gears were fine. Also, when I looked down at the gear indicator lights, ALL seemed to have a box around them (PRND)! This would indicate that I was in all gears at the same time! I got the vehicle home and let it sit overnight. The next morning I drove it and NONE of the symptoms were present (shifted fine). It does sound like the electronic shift module mention before (an intermittent problem is usually electrical). I have an appointment with the CarMax Repair folks on Thursday. But since the car is not exhibiting the symptoms, I don't know what they can do. I'll keep you posted.Report it
