Grand Cherokee

  • 97,000 miles
The N23 recall was performed which was a software update that now recognized that the transfer case actuator motor was bad. The dealer replaced the transfer case motor at a cost to me of $900. After 3 months of driving the "4WD system" error pops up again on my dash and I can't put my vehicle into 4WD lo again. Apparently, there is a service bulletin about this - service bulletin number: 21-022-14 rev. A. no one from Chrysler informed me about this so I had to research the problem for hours on my own. This is bad business and the public should be informed of this.
