  1. Stuck in "I" Status for 17 days

    The length of the inspection delay doesn't necessarily correspond with the severity of the issue. Prolonged "I" status means that some defect has been found in the build that is awaiting rectification. Some of the most common were bolts for which the head has snapped off from being over...
  2. 2 DOOR JL build/order discussions master thread

    Have any 2dr Rubi owners here replaced their rock rails and would be interested in selling the OEM parts? I did some trail damage to the driver's side rail and am looking to buy a replacement. Send me a PM if interested.
  3. Can We Get a 2dr JL Forum?

    I think there's enough interest in this as demonstrated by the "2 DOOR JL build/order discussions master thread" that become a home for general discussions by 2dr owners. It has over 14,000 posts.
  4. Door Lock Button Requires Multiple Presses

    They replaced the steering damper to address steering shimmy and rare instances of wobble on bumps. Details here:
  5. Door Lock Button Requires Multiple Presses

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I am aware of the fact that you cannot lock the door using the exterior buttons with your hand wrapped around the handle. I just press my thumb on the button with no other contact on the handle and the issue occurs. My second fob is not with my vehicle, so...
  6. Door Lock Button Requires Multiple Presses

    Had my dealer look at this when I had it in for steering issues (fortunately fixed). Service tech took seven presses over five seconds before the driver's door would lock. Same on other doors. The tech then said this is perfectly normal and his son's Chrysler 300 operates exactly the same. I...
  7. Steering wheel wobble?

    Above is the original issue with my May/18 build JL from three weeks ago. It went the back to the dealer immediately after I found out about the unofficial bulletin to replace defective steering dampers. They discovered that my damper had a date stamp that was well within the range of defective...
  8. Door Lock Button Requires Multiple Presses

    Do you have proximity keyless? I'm guessing, but it seems like the system may be taking time to confirm the fob has not been left inside the vehicle so it won't accidentally be locked in.
  9. Door Lock Button Requires Multiple Presses

    What's normal for the operation of these door handle buttons? Mine will occasionally lock the first time I press the button after closing the door, but that's rare. The vast majority of times, I have to wait around 5 seconds after closing the door before a button press is recognized. In that 5...
  10. Steering wheel wobble?

    Well that sucks. I didn't get a date and don't know if I will get one. It seems next to impossible to get anything out of FCA Canada.
  11. Steering wheel wobble?

    Thanks for posting this, particularly the attachment. After assessing “no fault found” on my steering issue, I went back this morning with my iPad displaying your attachment. They immediately put my Jeep up on a hoist and found the date code was 105, well before the 257 threshold. They’ve...
  12. Steering wheel wobble?

    I don't know, but I'll definitely follow up. Thanks.
  13. Steering wheel wobble?

    Most of my miles are highway miles.
  14. Steering wheel wobble?

    I experienced a low speed death wobble for the first time last Friday on my stock 2dr JLR with 7k miles. When making a right turn from a side street, I hit a mild bump at 20 mph with the front wheels near but not fully straight. That induced a wobble that lasted at least 5 seconds until just...
  15. Near Death Wobble

    It wasn't a full death wobble, but a mini version in my JLR 2dr with 6k miles. I was turning off of a side street with my wheels nearly straightened out when I hit a bump which started a side to side steering oscillation that lasted at least 5 full seconds. I'm guessing I was doing around 20mph...
  16. New JL owners: How long from date of order to delivery

    If you don't get a VIN within days, it may mean your dealer does not have allocation. Ask for an updated Priced Order Confirmation (POC) that will have your status. If it does not have a VON or VIN, consider going to another dealer because your order has not been booked by FCA. Once you get a...
  17. 2 DOOR JL build/order discussions master thread

    Hi Cristina. I've largely been off the forum after receiving my JLR six weeks ago and I'm surprised at the number of long timers on this thread that are still waiting. I saw that your rail journey has ended and I assume that it just has to get by truck to your dealer. How far away is that? For...
  18. 2 DOOR JL build/order discussions master thread

    The white on black look is definitely what sold me on white paint. I posted below why it's not what I would really like in colour and why I didn't feel I had much choice. Now that I have it, I have no...
  19. 2 DOOR JL build/order discussions master thread

    Hence the black fenders and top so I can spot it during our July blizzards and safely drive back to my igloo;)
  20. New JL owners: How long from date of order to delivery

    If it's in I status for more than a day, you have a quality issue that needs remediation. That can take days to weeks to resolve depending on the problem and backlog of repairs.
