Althought i wish it had never happened, they stepped up as much as they could to make it right.
i got the jeep back today. It ran fine for the 40 miles i put on it today. I will be driving 2hrs home tomorrow and will be dropping the skidplate next week just to check and make sure it isnt still leaking.
Between the free car rental, free tank of gas and reimbursement for the local service charges i am happy with the effort Dean (service advisor) and Huntington Beach Jeep put in to trying to make it right.
I will report back next week, hopefully to tell you all there is no more leak.
As I mentioned, they replaced the upper sump gasket on ours twice. It still leaks. Ours went in again for the 20, 000km service, and they looked again. They have now ordered a new sump, and will fit when it arrives.
Im interested, have you had a look under your car? Check to see if the ABS brake cables have been cable tied to the suspension. In the factory they are clipped to the suspension, but appatently when they have to pull the hubs off the clips snap, and the only fix is cable ties. Piss poor I say!
