2021 Rubicon
My last car was a Lexus IS 250 ... and I'm seriously missing the idea of dropping it off, getting a coffee from their lounge, and then driving away at most a couple hours later... Super bummed.

Agreed. I traded in a BMW X5 for the Rubicon. While the Rubicon is much more fun to drive, I am not happy I had the "axles locked" status being reported in 2H with less than 50 miles on it. First dealer I had an appt with turned me away because it was a Friday and said "they never do diagnostics on a Friday" WTF -- complaints to the GM went unanswered. Took to a second dealer who was much more accommodating and even got me a loaner/rental (though I had to pick up and return off site) but simply performed a reset of the computer to clear the status and said they had never heard of the axle locker sensor problems discussed extensively on this forum and elsewhere. Didn't have any service issues with the BMW in 70K miles, but if I did at least they did have coffee and snacks in the waiting room...

For those of you having the the service locker message and those of you worried you might get it I would read this thread.

https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/locker-position-sensor-potting-dana-44.59581/

I did mine a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't that bad. Jeep/ Dana aren't addressing the issue so you might as well.
Pretty pathetic considering people are paying 60k for these rigs and having to pull shit apart and play mr gadget with potting sensors lol

I completely agree.. I had my JKUR for 10 years and had a couple of recalls but not near the issues I've had with my JLUR. I still love having it but newer isn't always better. And Jeep needs to step up their game when dealing with these issues.
