Re: 36k miles. Total transmission failure!

I am having my second transmission replaced at 72,000 miles, my first was at 33,00 miles. I won't even go into the valve head replacement, or 730N failures:mad: Oops I just did.

Re: How is Your High Mileage WK2 Holding Up?

Re: Transfer Case

It's personal preference, I don't believe in "lifetime" oils. They are supposed to inspect it based on the service schedule.

Re: Trade In???

I bought the lifetime warranty before my transmission died at 33000 miles. Had I not had it, the Jeep would be gone. I wouldn't have risked it for the unreliability. I already replaced the GPS...

Re: Safety Recall P14 / NHTSA 14V-154 Brake Booster Success Poll

I just called the dealer. They only get so many parts I was told. Still on the list, going into the 4th month.

Re: Safety Recall P14 / NHTSA 14V-154 Brake Booster Success Poll

I am amazed that a 2014 gets a booster before an older WK2. I am on 3 months wait and I live in a road salt state. Chrysler should work oldest to newest models and north to south to get these done....

Re: Chrysler extends left cylinder head warranty to 10 years or 240 000 KMs

Not the engine, just the left cylinder head. If the right side goes at 101000 it doesn't apply.
