2016's New Shifter Wire Harness Recall Soon ! ?

Just when I felt "comfortable" buying my 2016 75th Laredo, 14 May & pick up in 5 -10 days, Recon Green w/ ORA1 & Tow, I see this News at Allpar site this morning. Apparently FCA US will be issuing a Recall (~37,000+ G.C.'s) on the New Shifter. The New Shifter may be locked in Park or Neutral after a Stop, IF a Wire Harness was Improperly Crimped. An "INTERLOCK ISSUE" ?

Disgusted comes to mind, . . . depressed ? Been nearly 11 months without wheels and actually considering waiting for the 2017's, but the overall Look of the 75th was to hard to resist, and when I FINALLY saw one at a dealer online, 200 miles away, I called and Made the Purchase. SUCKS knowing I haven't even seen IT or sat in it yet, and Already it's gonna have the Center Console "manhandled to see if some damned wires are Crimped"! FCA can change management Faces all they want; Ain't gonna Fix the Core issues at the Factory Level ! Should I of bought a TREK 21 speed Hybrid bike instead ?

Assuming (ugh I hate to do that) the "other issues - TSB's", which there are a few, can be Easily delt with, I will start USEing my new toy as Built/Intended, so if inclined, I will try to Revitalize the Old 'Show & Tell' Thread with lots of Lou's Adventures, and perhaps others will once again get Inspired to join in !
Till Then . . . Happy Recalling . . . !

That might be the most comforting and disconcerting statement I've ever seen typed. I dig it. Of all the recalls this one might be the least intrusive, minus the amount of consoles and trim that the "techs" are likely to damage

Easy is actually an understatement. Getting the top of the console off is almost as easy as opening your fuel door lol. In other words don't worry about it.
All manufacturers have recalls and tsb's. It's all good, there is absolutely no reason to be disgusted. You'll love the Jeep.

LOL Lou... if your new one was built after Feb 2016 you don't need to worry about it.

19 Feb. to be "precise," So Far !? Thanks Bones I did the research yesterday and in fact also informed 'GOVERNOR' (?) in another thread - he revealed 3 Fantastic Photos of His New Limited 75th and I informed him of the potential issues via S28. Boy that RECON Green looks SUPER, check it out, can't hardly wait to see mine (Laredo form w/ORA1 & Tow, black cloth) in a few days !
Have no doubt I Will be "showing it off" here too!

edit; Those GOVERNOR photos are on page 214 of the "What did you do to your wk2 today" thread !
