the recall around the gear selector when people thought the car was in park but it wasn't. Cant remember the recall number, but it was a drama so they re issued a recall on the recall.

Its been a battle Benn0 but yeah at least they are looking. Having it breakdown on them has been helpful. It surprised me when they said it had behaved itself for two days in a row.

well picked up the car this morning. Everyone was happy, and watched the wife drive away. ....

She rang me ten minutes later, car has gone into limp mode, 'Service Throttle Control". You've got to be fu#*ing kidding. Guess that rules out the throttle body.

Rang the dealer and told them its on its way back and have a loaner ready. They were speechless. Nearly 4 weeks they have had it. And to add insult it was handed back with no fuel in it, in the yellow, and not even washed. They had driven it 281 K,s in that time and it was left with them on half a tank. WTF

Ive given up on Jeep Benn0 and I've almost given up on the car. Its pretty bad when you get used to not being able to drive your own car cos its in the workshop being UN FIXED by the people that warrant the bloody thing...I am also firmly convinced that they genuinely dont give a $hit. It is just mind boggling that this can happen these days. Words fail me

Would make for a good current affair / ACCC story.

I read some stuff on the American forum recently and owners there are experiencing the same "don't care" attitude with FCA and dealers. I saw one thread where FCA had responded directly to a post in a positive vein, which indicates they do look at the forum, but it may be that they're just dishing out platitudes rather than action. As for FCA Oz, it seems the current corporate policy is "keep silent and carry on (doing nothing)".

The more I get used to the Jeep environment the more I realise you have to depend on independent suppliers and workshops to keep what is otherwise a mostly great car on the road. I've found US Parts based in QLD are good, and when servicing is due I've got two independent local Jeep specialists in my sights. IMO small businesses are generally hungrier and more customer focused than these bloody awful corporate monsters.

Picked up the car yesterday morning after nearly 6 weeks without it. Drove it to work and then home in the afternoon which is over an hours trip and the car went well. The car has been reliable for 3 or 4 days while at the dealers also where it would have limped by now. Looks like the boost sensor was the issue after a lot of trial and error. The selector recall was done at the same time and I reckon its using more fuel but I will keep an eye on that, but its running really well....at the moment. Will test it out with the caravan when I get a bit of confidence back in it. Keeping everything crossed..There were a few codes that needed looking into and that took a bit of sorting until the culprit was found. Geez I hope its right now.
