I hear u, agree, and would like to do the same....but.....

Good luck over time to us though. Physical only fix, doable, but since this is a software only flash of 4 control modules I would imagine it is now part of the baseline rev level such that it comes along for the ride with any future "improvement" flashes to those modules. They may also be connected in that one rev level requires the others "synced" to a certain rev. I know I'm guessing all over the place but I just think "they" are going to win on this one in the end. Also, this will likely become very very "sticky" with service departments from dealer ownership and FCA corporate pressure especially if FCA feels it's related to Mr. Yelchin's demise. My guess is the only way to avoid this is to forgo future improvements and never have one of these 4 cm's flashed again which I guess is possible.

I just got my postcard from FCA yesterday advising me of the software fix. Already called my dealer and the earlier appointment they have is for August 10....

Just had my '15 GC in for service and they did the "fix" for the recall- no more opening the door to back up! Now if your door is open and you take your foot off the break while in gear, auto park engages and puts the car in park. This is only with no seat belt- with seat belt fastened you can drive with the door open- See vid attached. Not sure I like it- safety is important but it feels like a "big brother" thing....

Hi WesO--we'd like to make sure you get in earlier than that for your recall. Did you already take the August 10th appointment? If you can PM your servicing dealer, that would be great!

There is a non-zero probability that people sufficiently bereft of the concepts of using the parking brake also would not be wearing the seat belt.

I wonder, if I have a lifetime warranty, if I could just trashcan the recall notices for which I do not give a rat, and then should I consider selling, schedule a day or two to have all of them installed.

You may want to consider what potential liability you may face if God forbid someone driving your vehicle gets injured or worse. Could you be liable if you ignored getting the recall performed? I don't think you want to find out.

What happens if you open the door first then shift from park to reverse with your seat belt off?

Doesn't matter the sequence. It will go into autopark.

Look like FCA US is a lot more on the ball then the Canadian arm.

I just got my recall notice in the mail which consisted of this card on how to put the vehicle into park and to use the parking brake.

My letter also indicated, "a permanent remedy for this condition is currently under development. FCA is working to finalize a remedy by the 4th quarter of 2016". Granted that probably has to do with the fact that I have the diesel power train.

Re: Shifter Safety Recall S27 (14/15) Repair PDF - 2.3 Hour Repair Time

Dropped my 2014 Grand Cherokee off for the S27 recall and they are stating 3.5 hours to complete, they said people are coming in fast and furious for this recall unlike some of the others.

Very happy with this rental benefit on the maxcare, I hand them my keys to my GC and they hand me keys to the rental and I'm out the door. If the work is estimated more than an hour I just take the free rental. This has got to be like the 15th (6 of them recalls) free maxcare rental in a little over 3 years since I have had the Jeep. Always good vehicles too, GCs RAMs, challengers, chargers, never any econobox junk, I think the worst I got was a minivan once. Got another RAM 1500 4 door, 4x4 v8 today. If I were getting rides or paying for a rental for this many visits I would have been furious with this GC but the easiness of the free maxcare rental makes it a transparent quick drop off and pickup. Its a nice side benefit on the maxcare.

This is what I'm going to do as well. My recall notice went into the can. I simply do not want them screwing with my vehicle to "fix" a non existent problem. There is NOTHING mechanically wrong with this shifter. The "problem" as it appears, is that the bulk of the people who are having difficulty using it, are either so dumbed down, or else just plain too careless in order to operate it correctly.

Let's be honest here. How hard is it to move a lever until the letter "P" lights up on it before you take your hand off of it? While at the same time double checking by moving your eyeballs to the instrument panel to make sure it say's "P" also, before taking your foot off the brake pedal.

The only problem I'm seeing with this shifter, is the fact Chrysler Jeep engineers made the mistake of thinking the average purchaser of their vehicles actually possessed some common sense. They have found out the hard way, common sense isn't always so common. The recall was and is unnecessary. This may sound cruel, but they should simply let Darwin work as intended. However, lawyers in this country would not let that be possible, without bankrupting Jeep in the process.
