If we can help with anything, please let us know!Mine (2018 JLU Sport S, 37s, 4.88 gears, 20k miles) has been at the dealer for a month now. Pressure plates have no eta. Mine originally passed the recall even though I told them it was slipping in 2-6. When they finally took it apart the plates were black and blue from heat. Glad it didn't self destruct.
These days if its not theirs they could give a rats a**! Sad!So, what rattle can will match the factory frame rail paint the closest?
Seems like the tech couldn't be bothered with washing the brake fluid off when he/she replaced the clutch line...
Do these guys work on their own cars the same way? I had to go back and have them finish the recall, as they forgot to put the cover over the low pressure line, and remove the clip. At the same time they replaced the steering box, and tore up the drag link boot, and just left it ripped up. And now after washing the car, noticed that brake fluid ate threw the paint on the frame rail. At this point, can Jeep just pay me to do my own work? If someone is going to tear my brand new car up, it might as well be me.
I had issues with either my dealer or with Jeep Cares themselves from this very forum. I had to have my clutch replaced for the same reason, never had an issue with my dealership and I've only chatted about this issue here when someone from Jeep Cares contacted me through here. So some big whig customer service guy contacts me, and I ask a few questions, no different than we ask questions here.Contacted my dealer about the recall and was supposed to take it in Thursday. Well the rattle trap didn't make it and the clutch blew on my way home from work. Had been out of town for work and was about 45 minutes from home. I have it towed to the nearest dealer and they told me i need a new clutch and it will be $2300. I asked about the recall and the known issue and they gave me a big run around since they can't do the dump test they have no way to see if its faulty unless they pull it all apar and that would be a charge. When i told them not to touch it for that price i got told that will be 129 for them to tell me that the clutch was gone. I pmed jeep cares to get involved. I refuse to pay for a known faulty recalled part when i had an appointment scheduled.So currently my jeep is held hostage at the dealer while i work this out. Anyone else have their clutch actually go out on here and issues from the dealer?
I wish I could predict lottery numbers as well as I predicted the outcome of this thread... it died, and the guys who jumped to centerforce as a solution are now dealing with Chewbacca sounds.My opinion is that people are needlessly freaking out about this recall. This thread replaces the “welds are bad” thread that peaked in 2019 and eventually died.
A very few unlucky people are affected by this. The ones who were affected before the recall have it the worst; i.e. the forum member whose Jeep went up in flames. The rest of us should just move on until the recall is ready.
Is your clutch slipping under load? If not, move on. Spending thousands on an aftermarket clutch before your stock one needs replacement is crazy.
I have over 30k miles on my 2018 and it’s a joy to drive. I’m not losing sleep over this, but am checking this thread often to see when a fix is available. (I understand the “fix” may be nothing more than an inspection or moving a wiring harness, and that’s ok.)
I've got 10k plus on my centerforce and I love it. My JL feels like my old 4.0 TJ. I can let out the clutch at just about any time without feeding in any throttle and I can get moving without stalling. Climb a curb? No problem. Reverse up a driveway with an incline? Just chugs right up. A very diesel-tractor feeling. It's rewarding and satisfying every time.I wish I could predict lottery numbers as well as I predicted the outcome of this thread... it died, and the guys who jumped to centerforce as a solution are now dealing with Chewbacca sounds.
Now that the hysteria has subsided, I went ahead and got this done. I dropped off at 9:00 and my Jeep was ready to pick up by 1:00. It passed the stall test, was bled, and the protective sleeve was installed.
33,000+ miles and still a joy to drive.
Now let's wait for the seatbelt campaign starting next month to begin so we can all haul our butts back to the dealerships... ugh.
