Recall 2014 JGC

Report Receipt Date: OCT 17, 2013 NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V483000 Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM , ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL , SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC Potential Number of Units Affected: 91,559 All Products Associated with this Recall JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 2014 Manufacturer: Chrysler Group LLC SUMMARY Chrysler Group, LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured January 8, 2013, through August 20, 2013. Due to a disruption of computer communications and loose alternator ground wires, the affected vehicles may experience random illumination of multiple instrument cluster warning lights, loss of cluster illumination and loss of anti-lock brake system (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) function. Because of these conditions, the vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 101, "Controls and Displays," and No. 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems." CONSEQUENCE A loss of ABS and ESC function reduces the driver's ability to control the vehicle. Drivers would not be warned of brake system failures or any other failures which would be illuminated on the dashboard display. Either condition increases the risk of a crash. REMEDY Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the ABS and instrument cluster module software and tighten the alternator ground wire, free of charge. The recall is planned to begin in November 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N58. NOTES Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov. 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland: Review

But, but, everything is fine. It's all Consumer Reports' fault.

What gets me, is the Jeep is a GREAT new vehicle, with over 60 onboard computers. One computer glitch and everyone bitches to consumer reports. Apple released IOS 7 a month ago, and has already had 3 updates, and no one complains, but they expect Jeep to be perfect with their first release of 60 new on board computers and a totally new operating system. Give them a chance to update and fix things.

Yeah, until you have a brake failure without warning and your wife n kids perish in a car accident. Yeah, let's give them time. Last I checked, nobody is in danger when their phone fails.

You are comparing a couple very minor Apple IOS 7 cellphone issues with transmission and electrical problems in a JGC? Wow!

To my knowledge, has not been a single case of brake failure. Electronic glitches, but no mechanical problems. Dash may have gone out, but you can still drive and stop. Like I said, people expect perfection, and they will not get it in a first production run.

Transmission is an easy fix with a computer update. So the transmission was a little rough. All fixed now with the updates.

FYI . abs failure is not brake failure. ABS are a good thing, but they are not a magic bullet. Without abs you still have full function of your 4 wheel power brakes.

Yes. This statement was just stating the obvious. Since the brake warning light is one of the ones the software is causing to stay lit, it is not going to change color if there is a brake problem. But the reason for the recall has nothing to do with the brakes.

So, yes, in the unlikely event you had a brake failure that you didn't notice in the feel of the pedal, you would not have the advantage of a warning light.

Once the lights on the dash go out after a couple of restarts, all the warning lights start working again.

Of course we expect perfection. It's a 40K SUV. Iphone is 600 dollars. No room for error when safety is involved.
