Those who own or lease a 2016-2017 Jeep Patriot should know that a high volume of customer complaints regarding persistent and concerning engine issues have been reported in recent months. Jeep customers have raised concerns about engines that shut off for no discernable reason while in motion, as well as other reports of engines stalling or failing in some way. Although the manufacturer has issued one safety recall affecting these vehicles, many customers continue to experience ongoing engine problems with no permanent solutions in sight.
One driver of a 2017 Jeep Patriot SUV stated that they have experienced several instances in which their vehicle has shut off while idle, primarily when sitting at a red light. The engine shuts off completely, forcing the driver to crank the engine several times before it comes back on. Three separate trips to the dealership have not provided any insight into the root causes of these failures. Several other drivers have reported similar concerns and frustrations about these engine failures and safety risks. For now, they’re left waiting for the lasting fixes they need.
