My new JK died on me!

About four months ago I leased a wrangler unlimited Sahara edition. I fell in love with it. I've taken it off-road a couple of times, nothing too hardcore. I went and spent way too much on new wheels and tires. I planned to buy it out when the time was right and then start really upgrading it. Last Friday as I was driving somewhere with my 6 month pregnant wife, the jeep died on us in the middle of a fairly busy road. it lost power, the steering wheel locked up and the breaks did too. After an agonizing time getting it towed, we finally got it to the dealership. I was pretty devastated, how could my wrangler do this to me.

The service dept said a fuse had blown in the engine, but they didn't know why. I was very concerned because if I was on the freeway or in the middle of nowhere it could have been a very dangerous situation. My service advisor suggested I call Chrysler, so I did. I expressed my concern and how a new car shouldn't be having this type of problem. They gave me a case number and suggested I drive it over the weekend and see how it feels, so I did. Yesterday morning my wife and I were on our way to go hiking and it happened again, on an even busier street. I had it towed again to the dealership, and they didn't really know what to say.

I'll be calling Chrysler tomorrow again and I'm hoping they'll be understanding. I definitely won't feel safe driving that car anymore. Does anyone have any advice, or had a similar situation? I'm pretty bummed out because I really love the wrangler but feel let down.

Cheers,
