Took the car back for the pressure sensor replacement and the thread is stripped on the oil cooler so it's on back order from the USA... car is still running but yet another problem for me.Transmission may finally be fixed, new firmware flashed again, no news on the other faults and although they had it for 3 days they forgot to do the oil pressure sender so It's going back again....
I have just ordered a my15 TH inI emailed the list to the dealer at least a few weeks before which was what peeved me, they had the opportunity to book it in for a longer period, instead I feel it was glossed over. Particularly the safety recall which they said they would do but has now been postponed until the next visit.
Transmission shift, needs a flash and re-learn
R05 (i think, safety recall)
Broken rubber stopper on the cargo blind RHS
Intermittent dropouts on bluetooth for phone (could be phone and not car, but check for updates)
Outdated maps on GPS (they told me march 2013 is the latest version)
Issues with ambient air temp
Issues with ACC cruise turning off alone
Issues with park sensors going off while the car is stationary and no obstacles in sight.
Issues they attended to
Oil change & filter, all checks and standard service
broken rubber -no
Bluetooth, tested with iPhone (i run android) no fault found and no updates
Maps- no updates available
Air temp -no
Park sensors -no
I'm sure there were more on the list but to be honest the only ones I really cared about were the transmission, bluetooth and safety recall. I made it clear that I was less worried about the other issues.
I feel I just got a standard service, the bluetooth parings were reset so I repaired my phone but the same issue occurs(I've repaired multiple times).
There are maps available for the newer jeeps 2015 and I suspect they are a newer version (as voice control seems to have more support), maybe they are incompatible but what does that mean? I bought a June 2014 car with March 2013 maps, is that the best I will get? They were over a year old before the model hit Aus. they are now 2 years old and the car is only 9 months from release. My wrong assumption was that a brand new line of cars with brand new tech would have brand new maps.
anyhow enough ranting, they are giving me a spare car for 2 days next month to address my issues.
edit* P.S I was a bit cheeky and emailed them a link to another website that listed all of the TSB's for the KL.
I know someone who actually prints them out and leaves them on the front seat when he drops his car off.
I have just ordered a my15 TH in
Mango Tango .
What shpuld the latest map version be, 2013 seemsvery olffor a 2015 car. Garmi are selling 2016 maps ontheir hand helds. Are maps automatically updated with eachservice/ firmware upgrade????
Good on you SimonsJeep and welcome :thumbsup:First time here. In the market for a family (kids 9,7,5) car. Kids really keen on a Jeep, largely due to Richmond footy club sponsorship....
I love the recon green colour of the 75th anniversary edition. The only thing I regret about my KL Limited purchase is the colour. I was swayed by the husband and the child at the time - so went with True Blue but I really wanted eco-green (which has been discontinued now) so I'm all in favour of the recon green.Thoughts on the green (special edition)
In my case, and I'm not alone here, I provided my Salesperson with a VIN, a Build Sheet, and the date the ship arrived in Melbourne, all thanks to JeepGarageAnd good point, Marty. I've looked around plenty of dealers, selling plenty of makes, in the last month or 2. I've just been staggered at the lack of knowledge, poor selling skills....

In your particular case (95% city driving) it appears that the 2.4 would be fine. The 2.4 in my 2009 Honda Odyssey is kinda gutless, but does the daily drive job satisfactorily. I use 95RON in my car. The rear sill in the KL does appear quite high, but my 12 year old doesn't seem to have a problem seeing (out) over it.
We've had Sunroofs in our cars for nearly 10 years. The KL Cherokee has five (5) automatic positions and a "wherever you like opened" positionAnyone have the panoramic sunroof? I've never had a sunroof, much less a panoramic one. Does it get too windy or is it noisy? Kids are really excited by the idea
We only have one 13 year old. However I often drive her and three of her friends to the Movies, Shopping Mall, Sports, School Events etc etc. So 3 x 13 year olds appear to sit in the back quite comfortably.Anyone with kids using a Cherokee? We have 2, soon to be 1, in child seats and 3 in total and just wondering how you've found the room in the back.
I know how you feel. It's something about the mystique of Jeep that has kept me intrigued and interested in the brand over the years.I'm at the "Gee whiz what about a Jeep and now I've sat in one and watched 15 hours of reviews and am really excited about getting one and I just want to talk about it to anyone and everyone" stage.
