Hi BIGDOGS,At around 300 miles, we began to notice a strong burning smell through the vents of our JLU Sahara. No more nice new car smell! We thought maybe it was a label or something new burning off the exhaust or engine, but 2 weeks went by and it got worse. Then got dense white smoke out of the vents and it made my wife and I both sick. Called the dealer and they couldn't get us in for 1-1/2 weeks (!). Got it in and they determined it is a bad heater core. Took another week for the core to arrive. Now they've installed it and apparently broke the gear shift and God knows what else, so it's in the shop for another week waiting more parts. Assuming they finally get it fixed this coming week, I'm expecting them to have gotten rid of the smoke damage and make sure it has no leaks, no rattles, and no scratched-up interior. We LOVE our first Wrangler (have had other Jeep models) but our service experience isn't going so great!
We are terribly sorry to hear that you experienced this! If you are in need of additional assistance while your Wrangler is at service at the dealer, please send us a PM with your VIN and mileage.
