Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

The dealer called me 2 times today to let me know what was happening. STAR decided that it was a bad radio and they need to order a new one. It should be here Friday and be done Friday afternoon. They gave me this morning a 2014 Cherokee as a loaner. Good thing it is a loaner otherwise the person who owns it would be having tranny updates as well, that thing is harsh through every gear. I have been polite during the whole process just wanting it to get fixed and enjoy my vehicle, I even said that to the service manager which he was hoping I wasn't taking it out on the advisors.

Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

Well no radio yet. They had the jeep for a few days and the new radio was suppose to be in on friday. By 3pm, they called to say it was still in transit and won't be here until Tuesday. They gave me the option of taking back my Jeep or sticking with the Cherokee,that was an easy dcision as I'll take mine back..so we have to go back again to finally get it done.

Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

They should order their parts through Amazon Prime. Two days and they even deliver on Sunday.

I think Jeep needs to look at their parts distribution system. Having Lee Iacocca processing everything from his desk in the corner of a dark basement just doesn't cut it any more. It took a week to get a front wheel bearing for my MY14.

I had to have the screen changed twice and the head unit changed once on my Acura (it's not just a Jeep thing). Each time the parts were there the next business day. Ultimately the problem was solved, as I hope yours will be ... Soon!

Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

Good luck with the radio fix SnoFire...at least you weren't given an older crappy Chrysler 200 loaner with warped rotors, and that smells like an ash tray!

That's what I was given as loaners when taking my old 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited in for warranty service.

Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

Tuesday came and went with no call from the dealership on the radio. Just got a call from dealership and the radio still hasn't arrived, says it is on back order. Won't arrive until 6/26. Just wow...

Not surprising really, FCA's definition of a "Just In Time" inventory system seems to be that parts are available within a couple months...give or take. Every part is B/O as far as I can tell. Disappointing, but not surprising. They're so busy building new vehicles they can't be bothered with diverting inventory to fix broken Jeeps.

You'll be lucky to get it on 6/26. On 6/26 they can easily tell you it will be 7/15, then end of July, then it is coming any day. Look, it isn't one thing that is the problem with the service. It is basically everything. I recently called around to have an issue fixed and every place told me to come back in a week to even look at it. Don't like it? Look bub, go somewhere else. The truth is that they don't care about providing a high level of service. They just want to sell the cars and present them as being a "good value."

Now, I wonder how long until this catches up to them when repeat customers (like myself) say "I'm done with Jeep" (like I am).

That's weird. I had my 8.4AN radio replaced a few weeks ago. It took my dealer 1 day to get it.

At least you can get the parts for that German car in a timely manner. Even when stuff has to come from the Motherland it generally gets there in less than a week.

And I work on both of mine so the crack is affordable.

Re: Thinking of dropping my Jeep

I have no problem if my future supermodel smokes crack, it will keep her from ballooning up like a wood tick...
