 Description of the problem2012 jeep wrangler sahara unlimited. Chrysler group llc is betting on the fact that each and every person filling out this nhtsa form clicks the 'no one died & no one got hurt' button so a recall will never be issued! That is their fix! Approximately twice a month years 2016 to present, while driving on city streets or highways at any speed, jeep has lost speed quickly and has concurrently lost the ability to accelerate. It feels as if the engine is bogging down. Simultaneously the check engine light will illuminate. Have to immediately pull off the road each time. The jeep has never turned off nor stalled. The problem has always fixed itself after a few moments on the side of the road. Each and every time, the check engine light turns off by itself. I have taken the jeep in for service to my long time trusted mechanic. The mechanic could not replicate nor find a code. Because of the risk of fire that i read about plaguing these jeep models, i feel very afraid to drive my jeep anywhere let alone go off into the wilderness offroading. I have read hundreds of similar stories on sites such as this. I cannot believe nothing, not one thing has been done about it. Shame on chrysler for turning a blind eye but will take your money to diagnose the problem for days and months knowing what the exact issue is. Again, chrysler is betting on the fact everyone of us will click the nhtsa boxes that say no one was injured and no one died. That way, no recall will ever be issued. Chrysler group llc hopes you are out of warranty, if not, they will push until you run out. Then they blame rodents chewing on wires etc... Ludicrous
