There is a white TH at my local dealer. Looks great. If only the vented seats were available (for MY15 in the US they are), I would have changed from my diesel order....

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

So - I rang the dealer 1st thing - can you bring it in? No I am about 250km away - no worries just take it to your closest Jeep Dealer - Ring Cessnock Jeep - no problems apart from the fact my Jeep Service guy is not in today - no worries I am going away but my wife can drop it in on Thursday - all good booked in. Driving around doing my second job when I get back in the car and there are fresh warning lights stating that FCW is not available 4WD not available and try as I might I can not get the park brake off. Ring roadside assistance - 90 min later a guy turned up and had a look - made a few phone calls and then disconnected the battery in the hope that it would reset the system (he did make comment that the battery post could not tighten properly as it is the wrong size) anyway that didn't work and the car had to be towed - 90 min later tow truck turned up - still couldn't get the park brake off so he dragged it onto the tow truck (can't imagine that is good for the tyres!). Tow truck drives off and I am still three suburbs from home!!! Anyway Cessnock Jeep tells me they will ring me tomorrow (hopefully with some good news!). My second job is as a professional photographer so I have been very picky waiting for the right weather to take a shot of my car in pristine condition - didn't imagine my first shot would be from a smart phone with the car very dirty!

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Argh.... I was wondering today about how you got on.

Here's hoping they can find the issue. Keep us posted.

Ouch, there have been a few tragic stories floating around, mine got hit 24 hours after pickup, someone else did a transmission, yours with a park brake issue on the back of a tray truck, I'm hoping for some good luck stories!

No worries.
I seemed to have missed the recall on the KL CRD. Do you have a link?

Belt noise in the diesel only, requires main serpentine belt replacement
It's on the list...

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Actually this TSB interests me
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/Misc/Cheroke..._21_027_14.pdf
It lists incorrect change ratio for 3rd gear. I noticed the change points are terrible under particular circumstances.
There is a left turn near me with a 45* gradient uphill and the car always picks 3rd and flat spots and i have to kick down to 2nd to get the car to move at all....

*correction, that's a diesel TSB as well

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

They're not recalls - they're TSBs. They are not an automatic apply - only if your vehicle experiences said issues.

An example is, there is a transmission shifting TSB just issued in the last week or so for the WK2 CRD. We don't need that applied to our Overland because we have a very smooth transmission already and have no complaints.

TSBs are different to Recalls.

I am keeping an eye on the KL TSB's though but since mine hasn't been built yet, the point is moot - it is more of an exercise in info gathering rather than an exercise in any thing requiring action.

The second TSB you listed - it states CRD. It doesn't apply to you.

My bad, I knew this but I'm wrangling a 4yo this evening whilst surfing for phone updates and checking on my tail gate issue.

You have my sympathy regards to the 4yo. I remember that stage - it ain't pretty. They get better though - Son is 11 now.

Hope you get that tailgate issue sorted also.
