I have blown my front diff bearings. Its currently getting rebuilt vehicle is now out of warranty (103,000km) but I have been complaining about the service 4wd light coming on continually. They have found a faulty sensor and after I pushed to find out why the sensor failed and the on going gear noise they fond the problem. ill keep you informed.

How do you guys feel about WH Grands? I just cant imagine taking mine away on a long off road trip without it breaking down

Nah..... I love the concept, the traction, the way it drives, and most of all the power! BUT, if I was to do another Cape or Outback trip, I'd be straight back into something Japanese......
Isn't it amazing how one can have so much faith in an entire country's motor vehicle industry!

Default WH faults

I seem to have an ongoing problem with my 2005 WH CRD with oil leaks.

So far.

Transmission electrical plug.
Air intake box.
Transmission oil cooler supply line-recall.
Transmission pilot bush.
Oil temperature sensor washer not sealing.
Diff pinion seal.

This in only 56,000ks,dealer assures me that it is not a common problem but I would like to hear if anyone else is having similar problems,particularly with not long to go on warranty.
Cheers,Dick.

My WH is on the road pretty much all the time and i have no quarms at all about taking it anywhere...I'm rackin up the kilometers fast....it hasn't given me any real probs at all yet, cept for fuel consumption.......it's shockin.........I don't suppose my heavyish right foot helps much either..lolol....I reckon i can get better economy out of it once it's outa warranty and I'm allowed to tinker with it....My ZG regularly gets 1000ks out of a single tank......Kim

My 2006 WH CRD (with only 30,000kms - I know, gotta get out there more):
- Got the 'Service 4WD system' flashing light once - fixed per TSB
- ABS shudders braking uphill, usually when cresting a rise
- Fuel consumption as bad as 18.5l/100km in city cycle
- Gas struts for bonnet fail to hold bonnet up for more than a minute - ouch!
- Rear left suspension creak - fixed under warranty
- Seat memory for driver 1 cannot be reset, intermitent problem
- Mopar front tow hooks for WH will NOT FIT THE CRD model - the turbo oil radiator plumbing fouls the plate of the towhook. I bought the hooks in U.S. (same part number as Oz WH part), so cannot return them. If anyone has successfully got an angle grinder onto the baseplate of these hooks and fitted them around the turbo radiator plumbing - please let me know! (I'm about to try grinding them down - gotta have recovery points for any serious off road fun).
- Otherwise pleasantly surprised with the reliability and lack of problems, great car, just needs a lift and some bash plates

Default Brake Shudder Uphill

I noticed a couple of complaints about brake shudder up hill. I found this on: http://www.wkjeeps.com/recalls/wk_recall.htm

2006 - 2007 (WK) Jeep® Grand Cherokee
(XK) Jeep® Commander
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a model 245 two speed transfer case (sales code DHX).

The software programmed into the Electronic Brake Control (EBC) module on about 296,000 of the above vehicles may allow a momentary delay in braking when coasting up a hill during certain conditions. This could increase the vehicle’s stopping distance and cause a crash without warning.

Repair
The EBC module must be reprogrammed (flashed).

Cheers…….. Kenjo

Sat Nav flakey but never when getting serviced, they MAY replace it next time (52,000kms so far).
Updated SD card with Eastlink Melb on it quoted at $400!
Seat memory probs in that it won't remember to go back which for me being 186cm was real handy
Otherwise big improvement on my previous 1998 laredo but some of those CRD problems posts scare me.

WH Grand 5.7 Hemi
42000 km so far.

Sat nav screen calibration went out and the whole unit was replaced.
I have a very slight hemi shudder during light accel, i heard a jet chip fixes this and those odd unusual feeling gear changes.?

My rear seats creak where the latches lock to the chrome bars.- i always thought it was the rear susp but if i fold the seats down - no creak.

The interior air control doesnt turn off the air to your feet when dialled, this gives me icy feet and legs with aircon on.

Front brake pads totally worn out and the disks needed skimming at 40000 km.

Slight rear diff whine at 100km and light load.
