06' Water pump plus other other issues....
Just wanted to share some info-on a recent trip to the Jersey shore my 06' Commander decided to eat a water pump stranding my family on the side of the road, not cool (4.7/ 27K) has this been a common reported issue or one off, I owned over a more than my share of vehicles, from daily drivers to all out track vehicles and have lost only one pump other than this one and it was electric, also worth mentioning is the air selector is not working consistently, one of the rear passenger doors is not unlocking properly and no its not the child safety feature, its only on the drivers side, odd? Also the vehicle vibrates upon hard breaking as well as squealing again I had this checked at the dealer and they claimed to have lubed all the brake components and that the pads are fine but my experiance this is telling me warped rotors/bad pads or a combo of both, as I mentioned this vehicle has only 27K and is not a daily driver, it's a mall rat for the kids, weekend away ect... and it seems like it's one thing after another, this is my first Jeep and I have to say the quality seems to be questionable, any info would be helpful. Thank you.
As a side note- Freehold Jeep in Freehold, New Jersey, The service dept. was able to get us repaired the following day which was great as we were stranded, but the service manager was such a huge ass, my only hope is someone treats him and his family as he treated us in a similar situation, I would not recommend buying or servicing from them on this factor alone, as the post above shows your going to need service at some point and dealing with BS attitude is just not worth it.
