Re: Air bag light

Thanks for the links MDBones. I'm aware of the P67 recall and I actually gave a copy of this to the dealer on 20/3/14, but here in Aus it is noted for MY14 GC - mine is a MY12. So the dealer said it...

Re: Product Safety Recalls Australia

I think I'll give my contact at DFT a ring and see if they agree that JA can rely on RMS and then take no further responsibility themselves.

Re: Jeep GC pulling to the left

There is a TSB for this issue, but not sure if it applies to your 4x2.

I had trouble with my alignment until I took it to a better tyre place who were able to sort it out.
