mine is under the recall. it also says, recall incomplete due to parts and remedy not available...this sounds like a serious issue, for them not to have a solution is unacceptable. i do not feel comfortable driving to visit family, or even on the highway to work. why should i risk stalling in mid-drive??
I'm on the wait list also. It's only serious under very explicit environmental conditions. You have to be using 10% ethanol fuel, high power demand in conjunction with high altitude and/or high ambient temperature, the fuel pump may experience cavitation causing a lack of fuel pressure. How comforting. Does it stall and die ? Burp and fart ? Vapor lock where it's totally dead ? They are keeping what happens a guarded secret. They're just telling you what the cause is. Ain't they sweet ?
In my case, I don't have to worry about altitude, I live outside of Houston, ain't no altitude here, this part of the state is a filled-in swamp. Now, I DO have high ambient temperatures, it gets hotter than the hinges of hell here. I rarely punch the gas as I try to maximize MPG. I also use ethanol fuel as most stations here have that.
Of course I want it fixed ASAP, telling us there is a problem but don't have the parts to fix it is idiotic at best and a big corporate CYA on the part of Jeep in case you DO break down. This is like going to the dentist with a severe toothache and the dentist says you need to have a tooth pulled, it's impacted and infected but adds, "I don't have the equipment to do that.". So what good is that dentist ? So what good is it for Jeep to tell us of a recall and NO idea when it can get fixed ?? CYA on Jeep. They didn't tell you to NOT drive it, they didn't tell you TO drive it. You'd think the Jeep idiots would know that ambiguity favors those not making the statement...they are liable if anything happens.
I did make sure my AAA card is up to snuff. Been a member since 1998, used it twice, but I fear I'll be getting to know the AAA operator quite well since I bought this glorious poorly-backed vehicle...
I am still driving mine daily simply because it's the only vehicle I have to drive. I have no choice and I'm seriously upside down on it (only made 2 payments so far). If I do get a notification when parts are available, I'll post it here so others know.
