20 recalls? Whats that, about once a month or so, like a custody order from the Family Court. Thats great, Jeep seem very keen to keep a close eye on every car they sell. Unlike Nissan, i never hear from the buggers

I now have a MY17 diesel JGC and it's VIn isn't listed and neither was my MY 2012 diesel I traded. Mate at work with MY16, not listed. So perhaps many may have had the firmware update at some point. It would be good to know if it pertains more to the petrol variant than the diesel. In which case, don't let the truth stand in the way of a good story is the winner here as not too many of the petrol versions are good for 3500 kg towing. Note to self, should update picture and description.

and now for the latest TOYOTA Recall dated 06APRIL2020.....check your vin number here;
https://www.productsafety.gov.au/re...uger-hilux-prado-and-land-cruiser-my2013-2019

FAULT:
The fuel pump on affected vehicles may stop operating. If the fuel pump stops working, warning lights and messages may display on the instrument panel, and the engine may not run smoothly. This can result in the vehicle stalling and the vehicle may not be able to be restarted.



@Bluey yours could be amongst them and the good news is spare parts are months away......... lucky your not going anywhere......


Here's some Toyota spin on the problem...........https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04...do-recalled-over-defective-fuel-pump/12128104

I hate pumps in fuel tanks, such a dumb idea.

Only applies to petrol motors and no diesel models affected

As far as i know its only petrol cars going by the model numbers
At least they have came clean and will fix it not like there injectors in the 120 series prado
Nice try @Drover but being a cruiser driver im not worried about anything apart from not being able to go away with it

Sorry just commenting on the Everest. Mine is a 2019 model. Mine is a 3.2l model 6 speed and not on the list but I know some people who have the other model that have been notified.

Well with most of these things you need to check the VIN # to be sure, no ID other than VIN and its always the safest way to check.......model variations often have similar parts......... Follow up is always good @Middo

Latest FCA recall on Grand Cherokees WK2 Diesel 2014-2015.


It is an important one to get done......................

Of course the knockers will start up displaying their knowledge.

FCA Australia Pty Ltd — Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK) MY2014-2015​

What are the defects?

In some vehicles the signal from the crankshaft position sensor may fail.

Toyota assured me this morning they know exactly where my crankshaft is, same place they've always put them, including 2014 .... phew :amen: :D
Of course the knockers will start up displaying their knowledge.
I have no clue where Jeep put them .... neither does Toyota :cheerful:

Well the Jeeperific had one of its rare, if ever visits to the dreaded Dealer today, an hour an half later, software upgraded so if flywheel senor craps out the cam sensor covers for it and we don't have a flame out happening at speed, certainly not something I want to happen...............
