TIPM Recall

Great news on the recall work!

What do they say is wrong that adds up to $3660? Unless you have an extended warranty covering the '11 or the powertrain warranty is still in effect and would be out of pocket VERY little... I'd get a second opinion before doing anything.

How many miles are on your Jeep? Have you actually noticed any of the problems they mention?

Re: TIPM Recall

I'm just at 45,000. I haven't noticed any changes or problems whatsoever.
This is what I can read off the paperwork;
Main oil seal...??? Something or other
Reseal pan gasket
Steering gear, steering fluid, alignment
Induction...??? Something or other
Plugs...??? Something or other
Rear Diff...??? Something or other
Coolant Service
What I can make out is;
Engine, transmission, drive axle, transfer case
Engine cooling system
Coolant recovery reservoir
Transmission...???

I certainly intend to get a second and possibly third opinion before authorizing any work. I also have a couple of uncles and my Dad to consort with as well.

TIPM Recall

Hard for me to believe they kept the Jeep for 5 hours... did the recall work... and noticed $3700 worth of problems during that time. They sound like a busy dealership... so even harder for me to believe they gave it THAT much attention.

Consider doing this. Firestone offers a $10 coupon deal for a comprehensive vehicle inspection. Cheapest inspection you'll find. Print the coupon online and make an appointment online. Tell them you just bought the vehicle and want it evaluated thoroughly from head to toe. Definitely DON'T tell them there's potential problems. It takes them about an hour to do the inspection. See what they come up with on their own.

I did this a week or two after buying my '11 Laredo X in Nov 2014 and they gave it a clean bill of health... and mine is pushing 70k miles... so Firestone has generated a bit of "trust" in me. They're nothing like they were 15 to 20 years ago.

Your dealer may have been nice for the recall... but they really have me questioning their ethics for repair work.

Let us know how it goes.

Now of course they wouldn't be a dealership if they didn't find additional work that needs to be performed....$3660 worth...we'll have to look at that a lil later while I review my warranty, I'm certain it all has to be covered under warranty, I purchased my 2011 in December 2014 so my baby is only 3 1/2 months new to me.

However so glad to have BabyBoy back in my life even if only gone for a few hours!

That's good news on the amount of time they completed the recall work compared to the original quote.

What type of work are they saying will be $3660 of additional costs?

Re: TIPM Recall

You've given me great food for thought and I will do exactly that. I will contact Firestone in a day or two and make am appointment. I'm so glad for this forum and the wealth of knowledge and expertise. I'm not mechanically inclined and outside of normal maintenance I've never had to deal with body shop or dealerships regarding invasive work. What you said makes much sense and I didn't stop to think, I was overjoyed with getting my vehicle so I can get back to my schedule on my terms.

Re: TIPM Recall

The $10 Firestone inspection includes tire rotation... so take advantage of that if you need it. Can't wait to hear what they come back with. Don't forget us! ;-)

Re: TIPM Recall

Hello everyone. I purchased my 2011 GC 5.7 in the spring of 2013. Since then I've had to deal with a plethora of recall issues that I've been reading about on this forum. Regarding the TIPM issue, my vehicle wouldn't start. Only repeated cranking. Tried all of the suggested remedies but nothing worked consistently. Finally took it in after the recall notice was issued and everything seems to be working fine. Startup is a bit "robust" but I think that may be due to the copper plugs I installed myself. I know I didn't gap them as well as I should have. Lol. I completed the survey that Chrysler/Jeep emailed me and I guess my negative review and the fact that I said I've had way too many recalls was the reason they sent me a $200 gift voucher.

Most of that is not needed, check your manual or Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - Maintenance information and schedules. Some really good reading at wk2jeeps. Most of the stuff they called out are inspection items.

-Unless you tow, transmission service not required until at least 60K (and can go longer).
-Rear differential/transfer case fluid exchange could be required at 36K, but can wait if you don't tow
-Coolant service not due until 5 years or 100K
-If V8, plugs were due at around 32-36K
-If V6, plugs aren't due until 100K
-Regarding alignment, are your tires wearing poorly? If not, probably fine until you replace the tires
-Fuel induction service not needed (use a top tier fuel and drive happy)

Sounds to me like they were trying to up sell big time ... for longevity, you can't go wrong with early fluid replacements, but according to the owner's manual, unless you tow, operate a taxi or are in very dusty areas, it is not needed at that interval.

Having said all of that, if your rear main seal is leaking, that may be covered under the 5 yr/100K powertrain warranty ... worth the question to the dealership, worst case they say is not covered.

Hope this helps.

Re: TIPM Recall

Too much to read through here...so this might not be new information:

The recall was expanded to include certain 2012 - 2013 GC's and Durango's. No parts available yet; first letters will be mailed out on 4/24/15 and parts should be available shortly after that. The new recall number is 15V115000. Here's a link:

Re: TIPM Recall

I received the recall notice today. It applies to certain 2011 through 2013 model year jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles. I have a 2013 Overland to which the recall applies. Repair is free of charge but the part is not currently available. There will be a follow up recall notice when the part becomes available. I think I will contact my dealer to see what it knows.

Trans service is at 64k if you tow. Later if you do not.
Diff is at 24k if you tow. Later if not.

Re: TIPM Recall

Am coming up on 23k on my '12 and just got the TIPM recall notice. However like the alternator recall, they have no parts.

Wonder how long NHTSA allows a recall to be in effect without any replacement parts.

And starting to get some misfires on #2 (others are 0 or 1)
