2021 Renegade Trailhawk
I have a new Jeep as of maybe 1 1/2 months ago. I went to start my car at work and all of these lights went on Service ABS, service Transmission, service Hill start assist, service 4WD, service steering torque…. I drive to the closest dealership and leave the car for them to look at. They call and tell me that wires were eaten by rodents and it’s going to cost 1,000 just to splice wires back together because of all of the parts they need to drain and move. Oh and it’s not covered under the warranty at all. I have heard of people leaving a Jeep sitting for a while and aren’t driving it, or they park in a barn, or in the winter when animals are trying to find warmth they nest in the engine of cars are not driven. But it’s summer I’ve barley owned the car, I drive it every day a lot. I park in a garage. I have bird seed and dog food in my garage that is untouched and not in special containers. These mice, rats, chipmunks choose to skip the seed, suet and dog food to chew my wires. How long did this Jeep sit on the lot at the dealership? How is this not covered under any warranty? How do I know the wire wasn’t hanging on by a thread and it just snapped now? I’m so upset that I have just over 2000 miles one this car and this is what happens. Does anyone have any insight on this? I feel like there should be some sort of warranty.
