Great question . I'm still waiting for local dealer to have the brake booster recall parts. The recalls are beginning to pile up on my GC.

Seems like recalls are piling up for all manufacturers. Getting my Corvette done next week after six months. We don't build cars in this country anymore, we assemble globle parts.

It doesn't seem like safety is an important factor anymore. They should be working around the clock, day and night for these recall fixes!

Look at how long the N23 recall took to get straightened out. Not looking good.

Where's Jeepcares?

I was told by my Jeep dealer that they have not received the replacement parts and that we would be notified by Jeep ( not the dealer )when the parts were available.
I asked if the dealer had a waiting list and was told they don't do waiting lists ( Great customer service).

The government has mandated that all manufacturers send out interim letters notifying customers of the recall, even if the repair has not yet been identified and if parts are not available. Our FCA engineers are testing various alternatives and once the solution is identified, it will be released. All affected customers will receive a second notification via mail. Please keep in mind all recalls are VIN specific.

After looking into that recall further, we do have parts available. Please check your PM for more information.

I received the letter notifying me of booster recall parts being available about a month ago.

If your dealer doesn't have the parts, try another dealer. The dealer I purchased my JC from had no parts for my brake booster recall for over 6 months with no promised date. I had three pending recalls and was told there were no parts for any of the three. I called another dealer, they had parts in stock for all three recalls and were able to do the work. Guess which dealer gets my next new car business.

I got the letter and authorization form for the P60 alternator recall. (I had previously received a letter saying there would be a recall once the fix was determined.) Seems the fix is to replace the alternator. I haven't had any issues but I'm glad they're being proactive.

I'll call tomorrow to schedule the replacement.

My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 54,000 miles has a bad alternator bearing in it and its making a whistling/whining noise. The dealer diagnosed it and said it would be about $700 to fix, with most of the cost coming from the $600 alternator. The checked and its not part of the alternator recall. Seem rather odd though. I would think that most parts on a $35,000 vehicle should last longer than this. I called Chrysler and double checked and they verified that it is not part of the recall and not covered by the drive train warranty.

I'm going to have my local auto electrical shop put a new bearing in the alternator. Overall, I am rather disappointed in the this vehicle between all the recalls that it has had (head replaced, brake booster and sun visor) and the $2,300 in drive train repairs it needed at 45,000 miles that it needed (front axle, rack and pinion and front differential) I will be hard pressed to by another Jeep again. I voiced this opinion on a recent Jeep survey and I got a call from the dealer to make sure that there wasn't something they did wrong. Other than getting charged $90 for diagnostic fees for repairs needed that I thought might be covered under the drive train warranty, they have been fine. The problem is the quality of the vehicle. Don't get me wrong, it drives great and is a solid vehicle, it just shouldn't need $5,000 worth of repairs in the first 4 years of ownership.

This is my 4th Jeep including the CJ7 and combined they haven't needed this much in repairs.

Whoa! That is scary. Might want to replace the serpentine belt too.

Sorry to hear that. Was your alternator covered under the recall? How many miles on it? Was it making any noise?

I still haven't gotten around to getting mine fixed. I pulled the belt off and the bearing felt okay. It just makes a little whinning noise. Which I am sure is not good. Really disappointed that an alternator when bad at 54,000 miles and that it wasn't covered under the power train warranty and that there is a recall on so many of the alternators.
