Re: Australian SRT issues

Got my car back today after 2 days at service to fix a few issues
Had the transmission TSB done and I must say the difference is night and day. Very happy with the result. The gear changes in all modes are now very smooth and seamless.

Had the aircon TSB done as well and again very pleased with the result. The temperature now has a memory and stays on the same temp when I re start the car.

Still a few things to go but the difference has put a smile on my face I can assure you. Maybe that has to do with putting the Borla S-type on today as well.

Re: Australian SRT issues

New fuel door
Re- align flares, way out of whack
Re paint callipers, chips in them when I picked it up
Maybe a new steering column now, problem with the clock spring in the steering wheel
New passenger head rest, squeaking like a bitch.

They are looking after me though, just taking a bit longer than I would like.

Re: Australian SRT issues

I have had a search re- voice navigation problem and only found the issue still unresolved up to late last year. Basically when i say ' Navigate To' and then location , i get a lovely ladies voice telling me 'speech destination not possible in this location' Does anyone know if there is a fix for this as yet.

Re: Australian SRT issues

I have the dreaded driveline clunk, which seems to be getting worse and annoying the hell out of me. Hopefully software update can fix it . Happily no other quality issues have appeared. Shame Jeep quality is not up to Toyota standards. Have had new Landcruisers, sedans and work trucks for years and hardly a rattle,squeak or mechanical problem at all. The jeep is fun to drive though.

I've just started noticing the driveline clunk in my car too.. Its low speed mostly around 40 to 50kmh downshifting.. Really sounds like the rear diff. Deff annoying and something I want resolved. Question is it easily resolved?
Cheers

Re: Australian SRT issues

Mine clunks as well. I am not so fussed as I cam from FPV's and Ford thought that 50mm of driveline backlash was acceptable.
I got used to the clunking, and I am sure you will too as the combination of drive by wire/ AWD and performance driveline are all working towards a clunking car.

Haha yes I remember my new VY SS sounded like a clapped out garbage truck when I changed gears!!
Might just have to get a really loud exhaust to drown out the clunks
