Agree it is getting a little thick isn't it.

Took mine in today and had the recall completed. No noticeable difference to anything which is the way it should be. All went fine but you should allow 3-4 hours it is a long software update.

I think I'd trust the 30 minute guys work than the guy that took 7.5x longer than the time allotted

Just saying...

I took mine last Friday for the transmission flash and had the instrument cluster recall done while I was there. The recall alone took 2 hours or more. I waited on mine thinking it wouldn't take long (and them saying it wouldn't take long since it's just a flash). I never doubted the extra time because both the tech and manager stayed late to finish it up. On a Friday. Plus the manager showed me the progress on 2 separate occasions. If you're going to have the recall done, allow some extra time.

Re: Recall 2014 JGC

The paid time is .4 hours. But it also mentions that it is a very long download. So maybe the dealer gets paid to hook it up and disconnect it.'They may not get paid to stand around while the download and installation are taking place.

Re: Recall 2014 JGC

Good to see the recall is out, get it done folks.

As for those lamenting the 'safety' of their vehicle, you need to a) know the risk (you may lose abs/esc and brake warning light) and b) understand the risk. The risk of the fault occurring is not necessarily high, these features are required. What's the risk you will need your abs/esc on a given day? pretty low I would hope (i needed my abs once in a year on an icy road, managed before that without, other than those 2 times I had an accident).

The recall states the risk is higher, but the risk is already so small.

If you honestly believe you can't take a chance with safety, I recommend you do not drive/cross the street/climb the stairs/bathe with your toaster.

Why do you have to be so douchey about this? Maybe the people who don't feel safe when they see CELs for air bags and ABS don't want to put their passengers at risk? I know I wouldn't want to be driving my son in a vehicle with no air bags with all the jokers on the road that I have to put up with on a daily basis.

It's the owners right to make this decision when it comes to his or her family, it's also their right to ask for a loaner until the issue is fixed with their vehicle. So please just stop with the internet tough guy act.

My dealer said it weill be about 4 hrs - no loaner available. I called Jeep Customer care - there is no plan on making loners available.

Agree Bill they don't charge time and just sit there and watch it download for 3-4 hours they go off and do something else and come back when its finished.

Unless things have changed in the past couple decades, dealers tend to get screwed on warranty work. Its as if the labor allowance is based on a hyperkinetic wizard doped up on Red Bull and crack.

There are three different allowances, depending on whether one flash, two flash, or both and the tighten of a bolt.

With one of the participants, I suspect it will still be on when my extended warranty expires. With decreasing actual value that would make Greece blush.
