I took my Jeep in for the heated seat recall in 2008. They replaced the driver's side, but said the passenger's side was fine. This morning I opened the door and the whole passenger side of my truck and the entire roof had caught on fire from the seat!!! Thanks a lot Jeep!
i had mine replaced under the recall just last month. my driver seat didnt work before. but now after they fixed it it works awesome. i guess i cant compare to before because they didnt work, but i did notice they didnt clean up their mess. foam all over the floor.

My wife had the recall done when it came out. Now she's getting notices of a recall on the recall. What did they screw up? We're wondering if it's a problem to worry about now that the warmer weather is here. Can it wait until fall?

i recently had the 2nd recall done on my 2004 grand cherokee. the first recall was a complete success but after the 2nd recall the seat heaters do not put out any heat on low and on high the heaters are hot in the center and cold on the edges of the seat. the bottom line is the fix is totally unacceptable. i recommend not getting the recall done.

I had my recall done yesterday on my recently purchased WJ. I can not tell if the seats are heating up or not. Granted it is warm out but the previous heaters worked great. I am thinking that either the dealer screwed something up or the things barely put out any heat.
I've heard that the heaters they install on the recall are barely noticeable on low. You should feel it on high though, on a hot day it should give you sweaty balls and be a little uncomfortable.

Well I went it sat in both seats with the heater on high for about five minutes. The drivers seat I felt no heat on the bottom or backrest. The passenger I felt heat on the backrest only. I looked under my drivers seat and there is two connectors not connected to anything. The passenger I could see as well. The dealer I took it to is pretty bad and this reconfirms this. It seems that the dealer didn't do the recall incorrectly. Service is crap!

Hey guys, my 03 passenger side seat almost caught fire yesterday. Smelt something burning, didn't know if it was coming from car in front of me or what. Out of the corner of my eye I saw smoke rising from underneath my jacket that was sitting on pass seat. Did some searching and found out about the recall. My question is, will the dealership replace my leather from the burn mark? And if so, think I could talk them into replacing drivers side leather as well. Not that my leather is overly worn, but I just think its gonna look silly with an old and new seat cover.
I waited till mine stopped working. Took mine to Whitten Brothers Jeep in Ashland Va. They did and good job and work great! I have no complaints.

A lot of people complaining about their jeeps catching on fire. All only posted once in this thread and none in any other thread. Interesting.
