I thought I had knocked out the multitude of new car gremlims but looks like bubbling dash and corroding hood are the next contenders. I keep thinking just this one more thing but its been a lot of stuff for 3 years. starting to question if this will be a 10 year car that I had intended. I'm a bit afraid to think what will happen when I actually get some real time and miles on this vehicle.

I hear you on that. I'm concerned with that as well. I think I had like 4-5 recalls and a bunch of other piddly things on my 14 over the almost 3 years I had it. At this rate my 16 is on track to far surpass that.

I absolutely love my HA but this kind of stuff is really getting old, not to mention disappointing. To the point where I wonder if someday I'll see a repair procedure outlined in a recall or RRT that states... "Jack up the steering wheel and replace the vehicle underneath it."

lol yeah same here I love the vehicle and I want to keep it but I have been to the dealer more times in the last 3 years with this vehicle than I have my previous 30 years of driving other vehicles all combined. guess we will see how it goes but when the water pump fails if they tell me I cant drive it for 2-3 months because of back order something like that would be the last straw. so crossing fingers they get their act together with parts supply.

If "Jeep Cares" monitors threads on this forum, why is the best you can do is to offer assistance with setting up an appointment for service? My eight year old grandson could do that. How about assistance to those who have chronic problems such as transmissions that still don't shift smoothly even after they have been out for about three years?

I have often thought the same thing. Making an appointment at the dealer that anyone can do in 5 seconds with their eyes closed is not assistance. Deeply researching and getting in touch with people in the know at jeep concerning topics that multiple people have issues with and giving back hard facts, answers or timelines would be a start and what people want.

Re: Camshaft replacement?

In case you guys haven't noticed, Jeep Cares only posts for something that involves easy assistance. If you really have problems, that's when they become silent as if they haven't read the thread at all.

It's not their fault though. They don't have any authority on anything. And that's unfortunate because what happens is that they just become a nuisance to the forums wherever they troll and at the end a nuisance to the brand.

So basically they're here to monitor how the brand is fairing and reports back.

If FCA really "cared" about how they're doing, they should be offering definitive solutions especially for the people who care to be vocal about it.

Imagine that.

Re: Camshaft replacement?

Brought this TSB/RRT to the attention of my dealer's service manager. Being so freshly released they were not yet aware of it. They tried checking my VIN against the RRT list of VIN's but apparently that info hasn't been made available to them yet on TECHCONNECT, so they'll keep checking periodically over the next few days. They're pretty sure my VIN will be in there.

This affects the Durango as well... but for us, GC's built between 1-9-16 and 4-5-16. My build date is 1-11-16, so my bad luck.

Then we'll have to see if the new intake camshafts are available or on backorder.

I talked to their master tech and he told me it really isn't as bad as it sounds. The camshafts are accessible from cover plates at the front of the heads, so the heads and intake don't need to be removed.

Re: Camshaft replacement?

Incredible stuff! Firstly NHTSA lets them get away with an RRT instead of a recall on a camshaft that is missing a "feature" got to love this political correct bull crap! Then they have 100 cams in stock across the US! Good luck getting one. What a joke. Hi by the way

Re: Camshaft replacement?

LOL... a week later and my dealer is still checking daily to see if my VIN shows up in VIP for this issue.
