Re: Product Safety Recalls Australia

Well yeah, they have to be pedantic and accurate, it’s a recall.

Not only do they call it (ALSO WK) they do a Coke and call it (WK-NEW)

Re: Product Safety Recalls Australia

I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong, My understanding is that in AUS the previous model was a WH which the US called WK, with the 2011 model AUS moved to WK and the US stayed with WK but unofficially called it WK2.

Cheers

Re: Product Safety Recalls Australia

They had moved to WK, prior to 2011. Thee may have been a delay date wise due to a delay in us getting the WK compared to US.
But they were calling it WK back in 2008 - Chrysler—Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Commander vehicles—Front Brake Calipers

You're right Adam. Our '07 WK is officially a WH in Oz. It is listed on her insurance and rego papers as a WH not a WK.

ETA: Just reading Snuke's post - it looks like they are known as both. (and also I wonder if that recall has been done on ours? Must go back and check. Thanks Snuke. )

Re: Product Safety Recalls Australia

This article is in the latest automotive industry news letter.


JEEP is recalling 648 current-generation WK Grand Cherokees in Australia after discovering an issue with its 'Ready Alert Braking System' (RAB) that affects the feel of the brake pedal.

It comes as a part of a global recall of 25,250 WK Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos that was issued earlier this month, with 18,700 of those sold in the United States.

The Australian recall relates to WK Grand Cherokees built between October 11, 2011 through to October 1, 2012. The facelifted version that arrived in July 2013 is not affected.

The RAB system prepares the brakes for emergency situations when the driver quickly releases the accelerator, thereby anticipating an emergency brake stop. It uses the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) pump to set the brake pads against the rotors to reduce the time required for full braking.

A statement on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's product recalls website says the vehicle's Ready Alert Braking System “may result in the driver experiencing a hard brake pedal feel”.

“Due to increased resistance the driver may not push the pedal as intended, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle,” the statement said.

The Fiat Chrysler Group Australia confirmed that an investigation into the issue determined that "brake-fluid flow was being restricted too much".

It also confirmed that the Fiat Chrysler Group was alerted to the issue when a supplier advised them about the performance of a component that accommodates the RAB system.

Jeep points out in the release that the brake function was not lost and was in compliance, but that “pedal feel was not consistent with customer expectations”, suggesting that the issue was more related to driver comfort than safety.

It also said that it was unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

Jeep's Australian arm is advising owners to contact their local dealer who will carry out an inspection of the braking system and update the software to optimise flow and restore "appropriate pedal feel".

Late last year, the American car-maker issued a recall of the 7800 Grand Cherokees in Australia due to a fault with its electronic safety system that affected the instrument cluster display. The fix involved a free software update.

Earlier in 2013, the Chrysler Group issued a global recall of 2.7 million vehicles after the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) declared that Grand Cherokees built between 1993 and 2004 and Libertys (sold here as Cherokees) produced between 2002 and 2007 had potentially faulty fuel tanks that could cause fire in the event of a rear collision.

The US car-making giant disputed the claim but issued the recall regardless in an effort to allay customer's concerns.

Re: Product Safety Recalls Australia

You would think they could give a better time frame as 648 JGC's are 2 weeks worth of cars, but they have given 12 month production window.

Re: Product Safety Recalls Australia

I had my car in for the Nav map upgrade today, and requested them to apply the recall brake fix.
I was advised that according to their computer, my car was not in that list for the patch. Go figure?

It probably is……I had a conversation with my dealer service manager about the recall today.
He advised the update hasn't been released to dealers yet, the WITECH system they use doesn't have it available.
Once it comes up it will identify affected VIN numbers.
In the meantime they can't book anyone in - I'm supposed to get a phone call when the WITECH comes good.

Nope, they will get on it right away - all you have to do is provide them with your E-number.
