How is this not a recall? Went to the dealer for the 60k or whatever was due and they said, your radiator is leaking. The mechanic said, yeah, they all do, but Mopar has since fixed the seam issue.

Again, if they know its an issue with the 2018 JL, how is this not a recall?

I don’t think this is very common. I’ve been on this forum for 3 years and haven’t seen much talk. My 2 2018’s have no issues.

your leaky radiator isn't a safety issue.

from the interwebs:

What constitutes a car recall?

A recall is issued when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat, or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards. When your vehicle, equipment, car seat, or tire is subject to a recall, a safety defect has been identified that affects you. There are two types of vehicle recalls – safety and emissions.

And Jeep JLs take 6 quarts of engine oil.
J/K about the last part.

Looks like the recall did not apply, checked last night and the sticker says 1202018, 30Apr2018.
