I finally got mine in for the recall today. And I drove home in this. The great thing is that if they can't get parts, I keep driving it! Boy, is it nice. Can't wait to get my baby back, though.
It is outstanding. Hard to compare, but I think it is tuned better for that kind of running. It really feels stable and doesn't dance around as much in the suspension or the steering.How is the Mojave at higher speed on rough pavement compared to the Rubi? My clutch grabs more midway though the pedal release...perfect actually. I like this manual trans and clutch more than any I've owned in the past, and I've owned plenty. That's why I'm apprehensive about allowing the dealership to mess with it. The pics of pressure plates exploding is of great concern though....
HANG ON THERE! A POSITIVE report from an FCA service dept? Something definitely not right here...Got my baby back!
They had it done in a couple hours on the day I dropped it off, but forgot to call me! The Gladiator was fun, but I missed my Jeep.
The clutch feels no different at all, which means it feels perfect,, so I'm certain now that it was right from the factory. The assembly line was going very slowly when mine was built, so I think they had time to bleed that sucker correctly. They also had all the parts they needed and it easily passed the clutch test. I also had them order a tiny plastic piece for the soft top that broke off and they updated the Uconnect. All is well, and +1 for a great dealership service department. They are top notch. I'm glad I got to spend the weekend with that Gladiator. It was a fun fling while it lasted!
Centerforce clutch. Prevent this failure AND way better to drive.I had the recall done and it says they installed the :SLEEVE: as per notice. My concern is that this won't be enough down the road. I know there have been a few people that had catastrophic failers causing major damage and Jeep blamed it on driver error. One driver, in particular, stated that he has had several vehicles with manual transmissions without issues prior to this. I like driving mine and don't think I could go with an auto but now I'll have this image in my head. Shouldwe all be worried about a $13,000 damage bill down the road? Is there anything we can do to prevent this?
I've been looking into this but I hate that we have to do this on a new under warranty Jeep to prevent a known problem that Jeep doesn't seem to want to cover. That and talking the wife into spending $2,000 on a vehicle I just purchased may be difficult lolCenterforce clutch. Prevent this failure AND way better to drive.
