2004 Jeep WRANGLER Steering Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1043777
 Internal NHTSA #10567359
 ManufacurerChrysler Group LLC
 Model Year2004
 File date01/06/04
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThe vehicle has exhibited the "death wobble" almost as long as i've had it. I purchased the vehicle brand new. At 50-55 mph, the front-end shakes uncontrollably. Sometimes the shaking is instigated by a bump - most often it starts simply by reaching the aforementioned speed. The only way to stop it is to slow down (which is not always an easy option at highway speeds) or put it into 4wd while moving. I've take it to multiple dealers and mechanics, and no one has been able to rectify the condition. While it doesn't happen every single time i cross the 50-55 mph threshold, shakes more often than not. It's terribly alarming, certainly unsafe, and completely appropriate for a recall and cost-free fix.
