Freeze on RENTAL recalled vehicles too! Oh my...

"A federal law took effect Wednesday that requires rental car companies to fix any recalled car before it's rented out. Until now, remarkably, it was perfectly legal to rent out a recalled car that had not yet been repaired."

Rental companies now have to repair recalled cars - Jun. 1, 2016

What are rental companies going to do with all the 2014/15 Jeep GC's that are under a relatively bogus recall for the shifter? Remember the recall will only change the software to make it a tad more "idiot" proof.

That's a LOT of 2014/15 vehicles that can't be SOLD and now can't be RENTED either...... Perhaps car companies will fight recalls even harder now instead of agreeing to make safety improvements. This law may result in the "recall" threshold being raised since once something is labeled a "recall" the consequences seem pretty severe for vehicles that are still extremely safe. Of course the big rental car companies would support it as more regulation hurts their smaller (35 or more cars but less than huge) competitors more.

It could also have the opposite effect, Dan. Impacts like this to large fleet buyers can also put more pressure on the manufacturer to get the fixes done quicker, or hopefully even do a better job of designing parts and software in the first place.

Re: Freeze on RENTAL recalled vehicles too! Oh my...

This recall is complete SHIT. I mean WTF people can't read what gear the car is in before opening the door?? We have a 2013 300 on recall because STUPID PEOPLE CAN'T READ, and I couldn't buy a left over 2015 inventory for the same idiotic reason. #UGH

I just bought a 16 high altitude and have to say, other than the leather surround (which I will get used to), the new shifter is easier to use. It also sits at the perfect height to rest your hand. So...yes it is what it is...but I still don't think 800k+ vehicles needed to be recalled and stop sales because of it.

Well, it's not what you think that matters... it's what the Feds and FCA think that does.

Well that's true but we can still write those idiots. Maybe we should tweet Trump [NO I'M NOT TRYING TO TURN THIS THREAD POLITICAL]

LOL... and as like with politicians it will most likely fall on deaf ears.

Look at the bright side... it got you into a 16 HA.

I never had an issue with my 14's shifter but others out here have. But I definitely can see the potential for missing the gear you want in a situation that requires a fast gear change, like avoiding a parking lot collision.

Next to the early build 8-speed trans shifting problems, there's not another subject out here that's been posted about on this forum as much as that shifter has been.

Re: Freeze on RENTAL recalled vehicles too! Oh my...

The new 300 shifter is a dial... Explain how that helps in "fast" gear changes.

I admit I've been absent from the forums for some time. But this shifter thing...DAMN. I've driven a 300 with it for 2.5 years, no problem. Seems like an "1D10T" error all the way.
