Servicing wise they are ok, just when it comes to the nitty gritty stuff, they start to fob you off. It's all incentive based for service departments to not find things wrong under warranty. If you feel there is something wrong that might need fixing, crack the whip, get everything in writing, they turn to buckle under that kind of pressure. At least I have found that.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Aaaaaaand another recall:

Nearly 907,000 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep SUVs and cars are being recalled for alternators that can fail and heated power mirror wiring that can short and cause minor fires.
The recalls, posted Thursday by U.S. safety regulators, push the total number of recalls so far this year to over 500, totaling more than 51 million vehicles. That’s a full-year record on both counts, due mainly to massive General Motors recalls of more than 30 million vehicles.
Chrysler recalled 184,215 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees earlier this week for a wiring problem that could disable air bags and seat belt pretensioners.
The largest of Thursday’s recalls covers nearly 470,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees, Chrysler 300s, and Dodge Chargers, Challengers and Durangos from the 2011 through 2014 model years. The alternators can fail, causing the 3.6-liter V6 engines to stall unexpectedly.
The problem also can cause the electrical system to fail, as well as knock out power-assisted steering, antilock brakes and electronic stability control. It can even cause fire or smoke, according to documents Chrysler filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
NHTSA opened an investigation into the problem in July, and Chrysler began its own probe in August. The company analyzed warranty complaints and alternators that had failed. The alternator generates electricity to recharge the battery and run other devices.
Chrysler investigators traced the problem to heat fatigue in an alternator diode. Chrysler said it received 322 complaints about the problem, while 55 people complained to NHTSA. The company said it knows of one crash related to the problem, but no injuries or fires.
The company will replace the alternators with upgraded versions for free. Owners will be notified in November. The company says customers who see warning lights or suspect a problem should contact their dealers.
The recall affects cars and SUVs sold mainly in the U.S. and Canada, but some were sold in Mexico and overseas markets.
The second recall covers almost 437,000 Jeep Wranglers from 2011 through 2013. Water can find its way into the heated power mirror wiring harness and cause corrosion. That can cause a short and could cause a minor fire and smoke, as well as cause loss of function of the mirror.
The problem was discovered in February after three Wranglers in Canada were damaged. Chrysler says it has 26 complaints about the problem, but it knows of no fires, crashes or injuries.
Dealers will move the wiring and install a protective shield to keep water out at no cost to owners, starting in December. Most of the Wranglers are in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, but more than 78,000 were sold overseas.
The total number of recalled vehicles already has shattered the old full-year record of 30.8 million that was set in 2004.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Thanks Snuke.
Has anyone seen the actual recall notices for these? I can't find them on the wk2jeeps website.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

He doesn’t usually put the recalls on there from what I have seen.
It seems Aus won’t be effected by this, maybe the 4x2 is as it only affects the 160 amp alternator in the 3.6L and as we get the tow package as standard we get the 220 amp as standard.

“The first recall, which affects 470,000 2011-2014 model year vehicles equipped with Chrysler's 3.6L Pentastar V6 and 160-amp alternators, addresses a potential defect which can lead to failure of the alternator itself, resulting in a vehicle stall or potentially a fire.”

I got rid of a Pajero diesel due to this happening more times than i was ok to live with. I knew the Grand Cherokee diesel also had a DPF in the exhaust pipe but i believe it is a lot closer to the engine being at the bottom of the engine bay compared to the middle of the car on the Pajero and thought that the DPF being closer to the engine will have hotter exhaust temps and wouldn't experience this issue. Man, i hope this DPF issue is NOT a common occurance
I know of two others apart from me with the same fault. I have only had my 2014 GC Overland for 3 weeks. It has 850km on the clock. Last weekend, I was getting ready to go fishing and then the Exhaust Filter nearly full alarm came up followed immediately by "Service Electronic Throttle Control". I took it into the dealer and they told me that it needed some highway driving. They "Force regenerated it" and it worked fine until yesterday when the same problem came up again. I contacted Jeep Assist and they are going to tow it to the dealer tomorrow.

Now I'm getting worried. We did drive for about 45 minutes on Friday at normal highway speed, so I think it must be a bigger issue than this.

I notice a post from a guy on Facebook who had a similar issue (had this happen 6 times). He said that his problem was finally found to be "an incorrectly fitted diesel
pipe/hose that goes to the DPF was kinking"

I'm now very concerned because we were planning a trip to Adelaide for Christmas, and not relishing the prospect of being stranded in Bourke.

Do you happen to brake using your left foot? There have been reports on here that you get the service electronic throttle message when using brake and accelerator at the same time. It does apparently reset with an ignition cycle.

Hopefully it happens one more time before your trip and you can make them replace the DPF. What is your build date?

And whats wrong with Bourke, Jim. Lovely place and plenty to do there. Ride on paddle boat and have a hamburger and visit Fred Hollows grave and and and .......... the list goes on.

And dont forget theres Simmo's Outback Car Care garage in Bourke that will fix the pesky DPF problem........eventually.

So look forward to breaking down in Bourke Jim. Embrace it, dont deface it.!!
