That is such malarkey (not you, but the battery issue).. In real world situations, batteries don't hold 100% of their charge for any more than three years, + or - a few months and to perform an adjustment that depends on 100% output, all the time and in all conditions is ludicrous and shortsighted, IMO. The tolerances are too tight.
Bottom line is that they released the software as a fix to a hardware problem and now it's causing more problems. New batteries cost $185 and new actuators cost $700 just to hide a problem that could more easily be solved by people using their parking brakes and testing a solution in real-world conditions.
I think it's time to say goodbye to any future Fiat/Chrysler consideration.
