Re: Owned car for 2 weeks, 2 recalls..

That looks like a scam call to me Steve. The reference to Jeep International is a clear giveaway.

And edited to add, no - I haven't received any message.

Re: Owned car for 2 weeks, 2 recalls..

Looks like you are in Oz?

Try this sub forum:

Export Grand Cherokee 2011+ - Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum

These are known issues, the passive brake recall (brake booster) isn't a major issue here as I understand it. It relates to brake feel after water has got into the booster and frozen. The wheel alignment issue is well known, and the CV boots issue is affecting cars of specific build dates. I've had my limited for 2 months with no issues, but not expecting that to be the case indefinitely.....

edit: here is a link to all the TSBs related to the wk2:

Thanks Benn0..

I'll have a look at that forum to see what others have posted..

I checked Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2011-2016 Grand Cherokee Service Bulletins and Recalls but didnt see anything that matched the SMS i got.. although, that website was last updated on the 1st of July so it might be behind.

Surely if it was legit, braking would be spelt correctly.

LOL, I didn't notice that SJandL.

So if it is a fraudulent SMS what was the point of it?? I'm assuming the landline number is the cost of a local call..

Re: Owned car for 2 weeks, 2 recalls..

One of your mates having a lend maybe?

Also there is no recall listed on the Govt site that we don't already know about.

Chrysler

Re: Owned car for 2 weeks, 2 recalls..

could be one of my mates.. but no idea how they would send a SMS message from JEEPIntl (no number attached).. Maybe a SMS spamming service.

Or, it's an actual SCAM where they pick up your car and never return it.. :| No way would i let anyone pickup my car in the first place..

I should of read the message properly before posting..

Re: Owned car for 2 weeks, 2 recalls..

I got this letter few weeks ago from Chrysler... Maybe the same issue, different way to describe. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1405059253.731810.jpg


Oh... the message said to arrange for the vehicle to be collected??? NO WAY. Take it to the dealer. Yes, it could be scammers, with the knowledge of the recall, trying to hook you.

Sent from my iPhone using JeepGarage

Re: Owned car for 2 weeks, 2 recalls..

And a letter (on company letterhead) is the standard way for recalls to be advised as well as the Govt body being informed. Never ever through an SMS that:

a: Uses a company name that does not exist.
b: Bastardises the English language.
c: Promises to collect your vehicle, fix it and then deliver it back to you all within 24 hours no less. (That surely should have been a red-flag given CJD Australia's rep).

The number including the Australian Country Code of +61, also indicates that it has been generated overseas.

I would actually report it to SCAMwatch just as a heads-up.

Toyota was hit a couple of years ago with a different type of scam.

Toyota Australia warns of sms and email scam

And I'd expect the random guy on the end of the phone line would have said he works for Jeep and is coming over to pick it up.....
