Default Jeep have done it again.

Why anyone would by a Jeep is way out of my realms of thought.

Do they research, talk to people or just blindly follow the advertising?

When I searched for Jeep on Google News, it let me read it:

JEEP owners have been advised to continue driving potentially dangerous and uninsured vehicles despite a major recall, one owner claims.

More than 7000 vehicles were included in a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Australia recall notice issued in September. But parts necessary to fix a defect that can cause vehicles to abruptly change gear to neutral are unavailable.

Rohan Mayer, who bought a Jeep Cherokee Sport last year, said he returned it to his local dealership the morning after receiving the recall letter.

“They didn’t take it very seriously. Everyone denied any knowledge of the recalls, which was infuriating,” he said.

His insurer told him the vehicle would no longer be covered because it had been deemed unsafe.

He claimed FCA told him “customers are expected to keep driving and call the dealership if the issue occurs”.

“I will not put my wife and daughter at risk like this and I think it is completely unreasonable for FCA to think their customers would carry on business as usual, potentially without insurance,” he said.

Mr Mayer said he found the replacement car that the dealership initially lent him was also subject to the recall notice.

He said he has been given no timeline of when the necessary parts would arrive.

“It’s ridiculous. I don’t feel safe driving that car. All I can do now is wait,” he said.

An FCA spokesman said concerned customers should speak to their local dealership.

“FCA has been in contact with every customer affected by this recall and that communication will continue until the matter is resolved.”

Brighton Jeep referred questions to Jeep HQ.

So why would an insurance company refuse to insure the vehicle? It sounds to me like operator error - didn't put it in Park and didn't apply the handbrake. That's two things done wrong. Do manufacturer's really need to account for such stupidity?

Personally, I'd be happy to continue to drive the vehicle until it's fixed.

sounds suspiciously like insurance companies gearing up for a way to make a little more cash out of people - interestingly if they claim its no longer covered are they ceasing direct debits from clients bank accounts for the premiums?

So lets get it clear. The loom has a short and puts the transmission into neutral. not a sudden loss of control or braking, just put it back in drive, at worst turn the key too accessory and back on. The insurance, YOUI in this case, looking to get out of a possible claim, we all know how insurance companies like to pay out. And this makes a headline, why because it's a Jeep?

And not one Jeep in Australia has been reported as having this issue.

What about the Challenger autos going into limp mode at will? Sudden loss of power, Does this make headlines? Or even get MMA to have a recall to fix the problem??? Or even acknowledge that there is a problem.

we have a comment because it is indeed a jeep..... love to have something to rag on, and yes the Challenger thing probably should be looked at - and on saying that if it did end up in a vehicle recall which resulted in an insurance company stating that the vehicle's involved would no longer be covered until the issue was rectified I would be making the same comments. That insurance companies are there not to look after their customer's but their shareholders. The byproduct of which is tha bulk of their customers are looked after, not always in the most appropriate way though

Yes. They need to design for foreseeable driver errors. Jeep have changed the design of the shift lever to one that causes ambiguity for the driver, so they should fix it.
I'd be happy to drive the car until fixed, as the scenario that would cause the car to roll away is rare, and being aware of it would be adequate.
