Re: Recall Alert affecting 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee

thanks PJS for posting this!

i went on jeep.com to verify with my VIN#...no records of recalls. i did find the bulletin listed in the auto blogs & the Office of Defects Investigation (ODI)

i called my Jeep dealer, they had no alerts about this. they said sometimes the media gets ahold of info. quicker than it's official release.

i'm so confused!

You're welcome and please call me Peter.
There's no harm in printing this out and going to your dealer for a chat just to make sure. Or try the 800 number in the Recall notice.

Not trying to scare anyone -- just a friendly heads up.

Re: Recall Alert affecting 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee

thanks Peter, i did call the Chrysler 800 # and talked to a guy who said there was no records of recalls in their computer system. the Jeep dealer said i could bring it in & they'll take a look at it for peace of mind. i may swing by there this weekend.

Re: Recall Alert affecting 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee

this recall and prior 2010 airbag recall seem to be a result of assembly line screwup, not design flaw.

Re: Recall Alert affecting 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee

It's a retaining clip for gosh sakes. There have been no reported incidents either.

Get it done at your next service.

Anyone who takes it in for just this recall is crazy paranoid. Not a big deal.

I remember in a previous vehicle that there was a computer upgrade. Turns out, it took a day of computer upgrades for it all to complete... And, I never noticed anything different once it was done.
