Build Date??????

Have just picked up my new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, (stone white Hemi... AWESOME) but slightly alarmed to find after waiting 4 months for delivery, the build date is 1st Nov 2010. The compliance plate into Australia is 06/11, has anybody seen it hanging around in the back streets over there for the last six months? Confusing..... Should I be trying to get the latest software updates installed or dosn't it matter?

Re: Build Date??????

Drive the Jeep and take note of any problems. If problems are apparent, you can scan the TSBs and see if you are experiencing the symptoms that are dealt with by the TSB. A full list is at Milous' site:
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_tsb.htm

A TSB is not a recall. The dealer is obligated to confirm that you are experiencing the symptoms before they apply the update. So be prepared to explain what you have experienced, particularly if it matches with a symptom covered by a TSB.

Your dealer can check via the VIN number whether any particular TSB has already been applied. Some reports on this site seem to indicate that some dealers do the brush off, rather than doing a proper check. If they say a TSB has been applied, but you don't trust their verbal report, they should be able to show you a printed output. If one dealer is a pain, you can always find another.

Good luck with the new WK2!!

Re: Build Date??????

Mate I bought a stone white Laredo in Brisbane and am having trouble deciphering the sticker to establish a build date, how do you figure it out?

Howdy, I was just going off the details of purchase on my invoice... But l have since discovered the almost blank sticker near the latch on the drivers door which has year/month and VIN across the top of it. All the boxes on the label are blank except "E-mark data not required" written through the middle of it... dunno if that helps any...
