Choosing which recalls to apply

I have two outstanding recalls on my 2014 WK2. First is the dreaded sun visor recall (a good example of when the cure is worse than the disease). The second is the steering column control module reprogramming.

I am fairly adamant I don't want the visor recall applied. However, I wouldn't mind having other recalls fixed.

Have others had a good experience with dealers telling them you only want certain recall campaigns applied to your vehicle and not others? Any tricks to convincing them to comply? Do you have to coerce them or is it a fairly common occurrence for them to encounter owners rejecting the offer of recall repairs?

The sunvisor fix is a spacer only.....simple 5.minute fix. Just had it done today and they did 3 recalls in less than 30 min. Brake booster, sunvisor and bcm.update.

Ya, agreed. Ignore the sun visor scare posts. Trust me, I'm anal, and they don't have to gut the liner like some have said. They just loosened that corner and put in the spacer, no big deal or evidence of repair.

Haha, I don't know about that. Having this visor recall performed just seems like a pointless risk to take.

I guess we'll see what happens with my dealer interaction once a "real" recall comes around (i.e. one that I believe affects my safety). Thanks, guys!

All I'm saying is it was worrying about nothing for me and from what I can see from posts on here that is the common experience, haven't seen even one post of a nightmare visor wiring recall install.

I suppose we could have different definitions of "nightmare" then, given the example in the thread I linked there. I would consider that a nightmare/validation of my concerns.

There are always exceptions, nothing is perfect. Can't go through life picking out the exceptions. Gotta judge on the majority and that's " a harmless procedure" by far.

I agree that nothing is perfect. I also concur that the overwhelming preponderance of people seem to be happy with the how the procedure was performed on their vehicle.

However, the way I perceive this visor recall remediation is that there is a nonzero risk for zero reward. Ergo, the payoff matrix doesn't make sense. Obviously, my strategy would change if I ever had the headliner dropped in the past or anything else that would increase the risk I experience by *not* having it fixed.

Re: Choosing which recalls to apply

Valid concerns, no matter what the apologists say. The service writer talked me into having mine done but mine is black so it hides the greasy fingerprints. What isn't hidden, however, is the big scratch on the dash from when they replaced the HVAC controls in search of an intermittent electrical fault (after originally replacing the radio in the search)....

At the next repair visit, they had to replace some sort of oil sensor (temp or pressure, they didn't say which) because it was throwing CEL lights. They didn't replace the top engine shroud correctly (it was just lying next to the engine under the hood) and now (for months after the repair) there is a constant PCV/crankcase vapor/oil smell that I get to learn to deal with or try and go convince them to try and fix.

The only way to have zero problems with Jeep service is to have zero service performed, which is impossible as we all know. The risk/reward question is therefore valid in my experience.

Re: Choosing which recalls to apply

Back to the OPs question. Just take the recall notice you want to have done to the dealer. Most will do the work you want.

I realize your a big Jeep fan, as are most of us on this site. But, there is no way your dealer could have performed those three recalls in 30 minutes. And did them correctly.

Not possible at all, even with three techs working on the vehicle at the same time. The brake booster recall alone would take more than 30 minutes all by itself! That's if it was done correctly. According to Mopars instruction sheet for the recall, which lists 0.9 hours to test and install the foam shield on a booster that doesn't need to be replaced. 1.2hours for a booster replacement, if required.

The sun visor wiring safety recall lists a repair reimbursement time of 1.3 hours;

I'm fully aware that some techs may be able to do some recall work much quicker that the time allotted but all three in a half hour..... can't see it!
