Thank you for reaching out to Jeep Wave!

I can certainly understand why you'd be requesting this information and it would be my pleasure to get this email answered for you!

I had a moment to review your contact here Jeff, and with the VIN provided I am showing your vehicle to have no recalls whatsoever!
i guess i just keep an eye on the temp. gauge and play with the fan when i check the oil. ride on and carry a lot of TUMS for the stomach

"We found in our system that Recall V54 in your vehicle is still incomplete. We would like to advise you to bring your vehicle in a FCA dealership for your vehicle to have V54 recall completed."

The work was done at a Jeep dealership and they've confirmed that the reimbursement check is on its way. I'm not sure what part of this transaction they're considering "incomplete", but as long as the check clears I'm satisfied!

That's because you brought it in and paid for it before there was a recall. They want you to bring it back to assure the replaced part is the most current. The actual recall was still never performed.

No Notice?

I'm starting to get a little concerned about this. I have a 2016 latitude 2.4 4x4. 36k miles. I thought the notices were supposed to be sent out in July. I've got nothing from FCA and my VIN doesn't bring up anything in the FCA VIN recall lookup. I thought ALL 2016's had the bad fan. Is it possible that mine has a good fan? I've thought about taking it in and telling the dealer "my fan is making funny noises" just to see if it is the old style fan and what they would do about it. Only downside would be footing a $500 repair bill until i can get a refund. Thoughts? Thanks

Call Jeep Customer Service 877-426-5337 and tell them your notice hasn't come yet. They can check to see if your VIN is included.

Thanks, but that was essentially useless. The rep I spoke to said my vehicle is not under recall for V54. It may be later, but isn't now. She stated i should just keep driving it. Which, at 36k miles, seems to be pushing my luck if I have the old style fan. Which brings me back to my initial question. Is there any chance my vehicle was built with the bearing fan and not with the bushing fan?
