What were the low speed issues? I think mine has the same problem.

They usually do RRTs automatically without asking when you are in for other things

I was thinking the same thing until i read here in the forum there's a chance their witech laptops might not have the latest laptops to spot your TSB issues which means a wasted day.

No they did not. They did the one I wanted and two others.

If you look at the one for the ELSD, it is dated 2/19 ... today is 2/18. It will probably be put in the system overnight tonight.

Instead of asking about each one, go to the bottom of this page and click on the WK2Jeeps link. Then click on the 'table of contents', then 'recalls and TSBs'. Near the top of the list they are listed in chronological order, newest on top. Below that they are listed again based on system. When you select one, it will open a PDF file of the actual TSB, just like the dealer sees.


To get you started;

The main thing for me was when you go around a corner or are in traffic at 20 to 35 mph when you step on the gas the torque converter would go into full lockup and then step on the gas a little more and it would unlock. It made as fell as though it were in too high a gear but really it was the converter locking up. It was annoying in a slow moving condition. The shifts were always smooth on mine and still are it just made the trans more responsive.

This is not an RRT its a TSB which means you have to ask for it or complain about the condition.

Exactly so when you're complaining about a condition and want certain TSBs done there shouldn't be any resistance from the dealer especially since the TSB refers to your vehicle. Running the VIN might not always come up with the conditions someone is experiencing.

Each TSB has instructions ... you really should read a few just so you understand. Some will only be done if the vin indicates the vehicle qualifies. Others are only approved is predetermined error codes a present. Many are as you suggest, and will be done if the customer indicated their vehicle has the specific condition.

If you go to the wk2 site as you suggested,there are quite a few that can be done on the 2014s 3.6 and 5.7 models that are in the U. S. so that should be able to do them based on that. Sometimes these service people that greet you at the desk seem to be somewhat put off when you have more info about the vehicle then they do.
