My 2013 is in the shop.

New member here with a 2013 GC Laredo. Took possession on 11Sept2012 and was able to put 310 miles on the Odo. Drove it to the tint shop on Friday and it lost the serpentine belt on the way. Looks like the Alt pulley took a dump. We're somewhat disappointed, but we're optimistic that this is just an isolated issue with defective part. Time will tell.

With that said, we're still pretty impressed with the vehicle. Our first Jeep. It's well loaded and has 20"s. Got the Hemi. We can't wait to get it out of the shop.

Thanks, AAAA.

Stuff happens. It could've been worse. just glad this didn't happen while I was out of town.

I'm very happy with my GC.

Hmm, interesting.

I lost the serpantine belt on mine too. Here is a link to the saga :

Love seeing such a positive attitude as it is only a small setback and you will get it back better than before

I feel your pain, GMWK2.

My service tech informed me earlier that they're having to order an allterntor pulley, a new tensionor , power steering pump and a new serpentine belt.

Repairs might be completed by tomorrow. (A man can dream, can't he..??)

Where are you in your situation?
