Jeep Grand Cherokee Water Leak Problem Is Leaving Drivers Soaking Mad

December 21, 2012 By: LemonLaw Category: Car Lemon Law, jeep grand cherokee, water leak

The Jeep water leak claims continue to pour in and many quickly turn into significant recoveries, including repurchases for our clients.  At first, we were seeing that a majority of these claims were revolving around Jeep Wranglers, however recently we have noticed the water leak problem has expanded into all of the other models, especially the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

We have seen Jeep Grand Cherokee drivers who deal with wet floor boards as a result of water leaking from the left and right pillars and the cowl panels, as well water leaking from sunroofs and ceiling lights due to faulty roof seams.  And unfortunately, the dealers often cannot find out exactly where the leak is coming from.

If you are suffering with a Jeep Grand Cherokee water leak, make sure you obtain a repair invoice each and every time you take your car back to be serviced.  Sometimes, when they cannot find the leak, service advisors may opt to keep a repair ticket open.  This does not mean that you are not entitled a repair invoice.  Even if they keep a repair ticket open while they try to find the leak, each visit qualifies as a repair attempt and once you are in back in three times, you may be entitled to significant remedy under State or Federal Law.

If you are suffering with a Jeep Grand Cherokee water leak, give us a call at 1-800 LEMON LAW or fill out our Get Rid of Your Lemon form.  We will glad to review the situation and see if we can help at no cost to you.  Chances are we will dry those tears and get back on the road to recovery.

    My 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaks through the interior lights, and the side column bars on both side. Vehicle is not under warranty anymore because I bought it brand new in 2008, however, I only have 24,000 miles. I took pictures of the water leaking on the side bars. I noticed it leaks when it snows and the snow starts to melt on the vehicle rooftop it appears as though the windshield at the top is not shield. What do I do if I do not have money for repairs or to take it to a repair dealer because I know they will charge me?

        Sadly, if you are out of warranty, the repair costs will fall on you. That is why it is essential to have this repaired while under warranty if possible. And if it is repetitive under warranty, look into your rights.

          My 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaks through the console lights, driver and passenger side pillars. This happens after a snow storm when the snow or ice on the rooftop melts. I’ve taken it to a Jeep dealership for repair. One time they said the drains were plugged, another time they said the sunroof was misaligned. I was told to always remove the snow from my roof, which I do. But there often a thin layer of frost or ice remains. It is impossible to get it all, since I park outside and live in the northeast. Nevertheless, I’ve owned other vehicles with sunroofs that are parked outdoors and have never leaked. I contacted Jeep Customer Care – 800-992-1997 and asked what Jeep would recommend and was told to bring it to the dealership and they would investigate the issue. But, I can’t get an appointment for another week; by then the leaking will have stopped. We all know that the real problem is poor design. I asked the rep if Jeep would assume the cost for cleaning out the drains after each snow storm, and was told no. So, basically, every time it snows, I should bring my Jeep to the dealership and have them blow out the drains so that it won’t leak inside and pay for it. This is ridiculous. I’ve owned many vehicles with sunroofs and none leaked like this. If there is a class-action suit, I’d like to be informed.
