This has happened multiple times when highway driveway. Since I bought this car for my teen daughter thinking it was a safe car....
I don't have faith in the dealerships so am trying to find a reputable mechanic to look at. Unfortunately we have had every common problem listed on this website. Don't buy a Jeep.

engine overheats when driving highway. Yellow warning light comes on above temp. gage and car slowly disengages, slowing down until at a standstill. Took to Dealership and they tried to diagnose problem, could not find anything wrong..told me to "keep an eye on it". If it happens again bring it back! Don't want to risk it and end up stranded. Need to return to Dealership.
