So I should have taken my own advice and waited to do the recall..........
After three failed attempts by the dealership to complete the recall on Friday, the instrument cluster is now unresponsive and the car is not driveable. Good news is they have me in a rental. Bad news is that the instrument cluster is on back order with no estimated shipping date.
They said that each recall notice they complete is a unique download that they have to do (because of the different specs for each vehicle). Each attempt failed at 95% complete except for the third which is when the instrument cluster became non-responsive. The vehicle runs but no information or gauges are available. The sales manager even offered to pull one off of a new Grand Cherokee but I guess they have to be preprogrammed with the exact mileage at the factory since it is the odometer as well.
I'll give an update as I get more information from the dealer. Hopefully it's pretty soon because I hate making payments on a vehicle that I am not driving. Trying to be upbeat about the whole situation but driving a rental spec Charger around is making me miss my Jeep more and more each day.
