I can't see any obvious changes with the update.

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Okay, so we got the S55 Recall and my beloved wife freaked out about it; vowing not to drive the KL until the recall is sorted.

However through necessity my wife is forced to continue to drive our KL and just as I anticipated, there still has been no dramas from our Cherokee; despite the S55 recall. I mean, FCA don't actually say "don't drive the car" in their recall letter.

But I'm glad to read those recent comments from Senior Members in the WK2 "Media Thread" about it. Thanks SJ&L, SNUKE et al, :-)

Anyhow our KL is going in for the 24 months service next week, so I'm sure that they'll do the diagnostic test for the S55 recall; if not I'll ensure that they do. I'm hoping that like SJ&L's KL, that our vehicle is okay and doesn't require the replacement harness. After nearly 2 years our Cherokee has been faultless, so here's hoping that this recall doesn't ruin our run :-)

Maybe SJ&L can shed more light on the S55 subject for others here

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Please let us know if you get S55 done, Mopar still say no parts available.

Re: MY15 KL Limited

My VIN number input into the Moparowner site/recall section states: Parts are available.

Anyway, S55 was completed on mine yesterday (they also did another owners KL as well). As Mopar says, parts are available but highly unlikely (or unlucky) that you will need replacement of the harness.

Here is the TSB. Scroll down to the SPECIAL NOTE on page 3.

http://www.wk2jeeps.com/Misc/Cheroke..._RC_S55_16.pdf

ETA: The TSB says parts not available but it's dated Oct.

Glad that your Limited is going great Marty. Mine is fantastic as well. I think after two years I was expecting at least a little rattle or a creaking but she's as quiet and tight as the day I picked her up which was today 2 years ago.

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Hi SJandL, thanks for the S55 info. I've printed it and will take it with me when the KL goes in for Service tomorrow. With only 5% of vehicles affected, you gotta be pretty unlucky to have to require a complete harness replacement.

No rattles, creaking or squeaks on our KL either, but she has lost that new car smell now

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Had our 2015 KL (V6 petrol) in for the scheduled 18 months / 36,000km Service today. Cost = A$388.

No dramas with the service, and they connected the Starcan Diagnostic Tool to scan for faults; none found. So the S55 recall doesn't affect our vehicle.

Tonight I was thinking about a Map Update for our KL. The current version in our car is 2013-Q2. After a little bit of research, it appears that no further Map Updates are available for the (Aussie) KL yet. Is this really the case, or does anyone have any news on Map Updates for our KLs?

Cheers,

Marty

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Good news re: S55 recall.

Regards map updates - heard that April is a possible release for an update. (don't hold me to that though )

Re: MY15 KL Limited

12 December 2016 and our KL Limited is now 2 years old, and 26,000km.

Still no issues or concerns; not even a rattle or squeak, and it continues to drive beautifully.

I'll continue to keep her clean & tidy too, as she will make a good trade-in for a new generation Grand Cherokee in 2018

Re: MY15 KL Limited

After two and a half years of truly enjoyable and trouble-free motoring, our Cherokee is in for repairs. Not mechanical repairs, but for cosmetic repairs.

We were in a fender-bender last week. All occupants are fine, and the damage doesn't look that bad, but we were impacted directly on the front right hand tyre, so not sure if there is any suspension damage at the moment.

The car has been towed for assessment and we should know next week sometime as to the extent of the damage. If we have to get parts in from the USA, it will be interesting to see how long that takes.

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Here are the costs of repairs for our Fender Bender (in Australia):

: The Labour for Repairs is $4,000.00
: The Genuine "Jeep" (suspension) Parts is $11,000.00
: The Total Cost of Repair is $15,000.00

We should receive our car from the repairer on 16 June 17; ..... in 5 Weeks. Got to wait for parts to be shipped in from the USA.

Ouch! What a bugger Marty. Glad everyone's ok though. Hope the 5 weeks goes quickly for you.
