  1. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    That sounds more like my BMW ( which also displays the gear on the screen). In my Jeep I think it is more of Neutral or not Neutral position. But I hope you are right. have you followed the saga of the airplane manufacturer that decided to fix a hardware issue with software? It hasn’t gone well...
  2. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    So what is the purpose of this gear position sensor on our highly sophisticated machines? It is there doing what? No, not buying your argument :bandit:
  3. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    I stand corrected if someone has seen the gear positioning sensor. As to why I think ( or thought) there isn’t one, why would you have a sensor and not use it to show the current gear in the screen like all other cars with such a sensor do.,Like the 2021 does now? But that also may be a...
  4. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    So far we know 2021 got a sensor to tell what gear the transmission is on, ours don’t have that. They may have even added a temperature sensor, who knows. But it seems they are struggling with a solution based on software alone. At this pace, a new design for the clutch will come out about the...
  5. Recall Notice 21V-028 [1/28/21]: Manual Transmission / Clutch Overheat Covers All 2018-2021 Jeep Wranglers Produced by January 22, 2021

    Well written. Worth re-posting. As long as FCA follows with a re-designed clutch. At the end that’s the cause of the problem. People not knowing how to drive are driving other manual cars with no issue other than premature wear.
  6. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Oh and you mentioned you are making payments. You are in a better position than if you had paid cash. Your creditor lost its collateral, check with them and I pretty sure they will jump in with you to get their collateral back.
  7. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Wow. Unbelievable that you are in this predicament. That picture is your ticket to a new Jeep. But I would add to the complaint damages beyond the Jeep. Third party says inconclusive, while under warranty and they decided you are guilty. That’s completely backwards. Any good lawyer in the field...
  8. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I don’t get it. 5,000 miles your Jeep burns and what? Did insurance pay for it? What did they say was the cause? How could it not be covered under warranty?
  9. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    I bet the couldn’t dodge the bullet with a shady solution thru software. New clutch assembly has to be.
  10. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    So now they say they don’t have a solution yet. Does this mean the software trick didn’t fly? Go figure.
  11. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    :movember: Hum, there are three other cars with manual transmission in my garage. No recalls. :lipssealed::lipssealed:
  12. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Wow, I have replaced many clutches but never a Jeep one. That is a weird disc. First it doesn’t have shock absorbing springs that I can see, and what the heck is that sprocket and what does it do? Would someone mind to explain? I have attached a picture of a typical disc for comparison.
  13. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    Which brings back the question how is the recall fix going to measure that temperature?
  14. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    One of the big questions is how will they read the temperature of the clutch. So far we have heard of software changes, not adding hardware.
  15. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    The only time a clutch builds up temperature is while it is slipping. If the clutch is right, and the driver knows how to drive that time of slippage is very short while you engage the clutch (let out the pedal). If there is something wrong (the driver or actual mechanical failure) and the...
  16. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    You got it. You know the statistical anomaly: 95% of drivers consider themselves above average:facepalm: :CWL: Mathematically impossible, but of course you and I belong to the right of the curve.:giggle:
  17. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    My Jeep just clocked 50K miles. No issue whatsoever with the clutch. Most people here claim years of experience with manual transmission and a good number of people complain about the clutch on their Jeeps feeling funny, making noises, too soft, and list goes on. Mine feels great. I wouldn’t...
  18. Clutch Recall (FCA W12 | 20V-124) on 2018-2020 JL Manuals [overheating clutch pressure plate]

    You do know that “voluntary” recall does not mean voluntary to you, right? It means that FCA has decided to do it before the government mandates them to do it. It is mandatory to us.
