so fed up with my jeeps t.o.b

hey all just about to drive my jeep off a cliff..... im so fed up with mopars t.o.b. its honestly ridiculous. i have 2014 wrangler sport 6 speed wiyh only 11000 km on it. i bought it brand new... around 400 km t.o.b went on it and dealer replaced it. well at first they played dumb and said they couldnt hear the noise (which is clearly a lie) so eventually after numerous visits to the stealership the fixed it. i swear after 200 km after that it went again. kept goin back to stealership and told thjem the noise was back.... 4 visits back they continued to deny therewas a problem, so one day i absolutely snapped in there and made as big of a scene as i could. it was quite the show i must say. they agreed to actally replace my entire clutch.... so i picked it up and it seemed like a brandnew car.... but then after 150 km after guess what happened again? the t.o.b yet again. every time i relaese my crappy mopar clutch you can hear the bearing grinding or rattling around. i cant take it any more i don't know what to do any more. even if i bring it back and they do fix it it will just go bad on me a few days later. so whats the point lol sad to sat you buy a 30 000 $ car and its just junk. mopar really needs to get there sh*t together.how hard is it for them to except the fact they made a faulty part and to fix there mistake. its just a bearing !!!!!!! i dont want this to further damage my jeep. they even sad when they replaced the clutch the the t.o.b was putting force on my pressure plate and left metal debris in my tranny. WHAT DO I DO???????????????? even if i went aftermarket id apparently need to still use the mopar. t.o.b. i heard the national one isn't any better so im stumped.

Well I mean step one is to chill out a bit.
Step two is to sell the jeep and buy a silverado if you don't like the jeep.

I was just trying to make a joke. But in reality, I always say that spending money on something you aren't happy with is a waste of money. If you really want a silverado more than a jeep, then get one.

As for your issue, this thread might be useful. Throwout Bearing just replaced 2 weeks ago

I had a friend with a similar problem and the 4th gear test eventually told him that it wasn't actually his throwout bearing.

Try a different dealership and if that doesn't work call Chrysler.. But remember be nice and you will get a lot more out of the person you are dealing with. I had to do it for a different problem but they will make it right

Yeah mine sounds like a tractor when it idles. Bought it new in 2014. 13k miles on it. Only does it when it's warm but haven't had any problems with it lol. But it is annoying sounding.

I agree on being nice at the dealership - any of them you go to. If you're rude, you wont get helped faster, they will take longer and will, hours later, come back with "I don't know. Drive another X miles and we'll look at it." This forum is filled with so much information I'm still amazed. I log in almost every day to look at things just to learn and am never let down. If you read something on here that really makes sense, note it down and ask the service person to take a look or just say it is an idea of what could possibly be wrong. When you talk to them, be as calm and polite as possible and try to be understanding. If it helps, get as much information to them as possible and have a friend drive you away so you're not stuck just sitting there. Good luck to you and your jeep.

I suggest you storm in to that dealer and tip over the drink machine, followed by throwing your shoe at the service writer. Then, if they still don't hear the noise, leave an upper decker in the restroom.

That'll show them service people who's boss.

Do you hold the clutch down at red lights? Ride the clutch on hills? If not, call South Bend Clutch in Mishawaka, IN and get some high quality aftermarket parts from them.

2013 Wrangler...Once in the neutral it rattles like a handful of mettal bearings in the empty beer can. Did this since day one when I bout it brand new. 33K miles later still does the same thing but clutch works well, no other problems...so I just drive and beat the hell out of it... dealer told me it's common with JK's so I made them to put this statement in writing. Not sure if it would help but it gives me peace of mind...

This not horribly uncommon. Mine does it. After reading about people spending hours at dealerships and flipping over their drink machines I have decided to live with it.

Leave an upper decker in the restroom....laughed so hard. Is that the same as needing to stand up to saw it off? Ha

When I posted, there was a section in the OP that said: "I should have just got a silverado". Looks like that part was removed though.

Haha! I was just being my usual smartass self. I don't get into the pissing match about which brand is better.....kind of like to make fun of them all.

Kind of like the old man telling his kid that he had to walk 6 miles to school every day, and the kid replies "Grandpa must have driven a Ford then"!

Or.....Speed Limit 65, Chevies just do the best you can!

Or ....Mopar=Nocar

They all have their problems, and don't even talk to me about the over-rated foreign junk; even if they are built in the USA.
Dealer support and how the vehicle fits the individual is where it all is when it comes to any one brand!
I currently have a 2015 Ford F350 Dually Powerstroke....so far, a great truck, and will pull a mountain, and if a Dodge dealer anywhere within 400 miles would have had a dually on the lot equipped the way I wanted it, I might be driving one of those! I am really liking the new Mopar stuff.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled program!
