Then why don't you drive your computer to work, and leave the Jeeps to those of us who want hard working quality built vehicles.

Cars have had computers since the early 70's. I love my jeep, but I call them as I see them. Safety issues are big deal and this stuff causes harm to the brand.

I agree that it causes big harm to the brand, and Jeep should have come up with the fix a lot quicker than they did. I am happy that they did find a fix, I just hope consumer reports comes back and revisits the recommendation, or we will all pay the price when it comes to selling them down the road. After this latest update and recall, I thing the biggest complaint is that the thermometer is a few degrees off, and if that is the biggest problem, I think we can live with that (I would like it fixed, and hope they do).

Re: Recall 2014 JGC

Jeep gets burned at the stake. Maybe we should be driving a Toyota.

Re: Recall 2014 JGC

Better be safe and buy a Honda...

(Honda recalls 344k vans because they may randomly jam on the brakes) Honda recalls 344,000 Odyssey vans for software glitch - latimes.com

Meh, it is what it is, a recall like every other company. I'll get my notice, I'll bring it in and I'll somehow go on living.

Recall update hit my dealer today. Just happened to be in for an oil change. What luck. Only took them 30 minutes for everything.

That just shows that Toyota is more proactive in solving their problems. It has nothing to do with the quality of their vehicles.





























I can play devil's advocate once in awhile.

Re: Recall 2014 JGC

I don't mean to come off harse here, but why are the hardcore "Jeepers" so defensive about CR dropping their buying recommendation for the 2014 Jeep GC? Come on people...really, you're actually blaming the Jeep buyers themselves for giving the negative rating, and resort to bringing up the recalls from Japanese vehicles?



Just accept the fact that it's Chrysler/Jeep's fault for launching the 2014 GC before working all the bugs out, plain & simple. Is Jeep the only company guilty of doing this...of course not, but to place the blame on the buyers because they complained to CR of issues is the argument of an 8 year old.

Seems like a reaction on both ends.... At one extreme you got the CR humpers that take every word as gospel, at the other extreme you have the hardcore Jeepers that can't believe what they are seeing and it must be lies.... and hopefully most of us are just reasonable human beings somewhere in the middle.

Dropped my overland off this morning around 7:30. Now I get call around 4:15 stating that the recall flash took longer than expected and that they need to do a RRT or Rtt? As well. Expect a delay I will not see her till tomorrow as also need alignment.

Re: Recall 2014 JGC

Just Wow.

Glad to see a few owners of said vehicles took their vehicles in for recall fixes. It would be nice to hear feedback post adjustments vs. this incessant cat fighting over bullshit.

Note the PFD attachment above states the repair is a reprogramming of the instrument cluster and ABS module, and tightening of the alternator ground wire on the right frame rail. No parts needed. Hope for those effected that it is a simple cure.
