Have you talked to a Lawyer about what how you would come out if you sued the dealership for selling you a recall Jeep? Are there any aftermarket clutch companies advertising a cure for this problem? I would imagine that they (aftermarket companies) would be on this like flies on doo doo!

I know Centerforce and ACT both have been getting a lot of press on Jeep forums for their excellent products. It's not clear however if they correct whatever then problem is (seems like its possibly due to misalignment between the bell housing and block). And so far it's not very clear if Jeep will reimburse for them. Dealer has also stated that Mopar will not allow their upgraded clutches to be used as correction either.

found an updated PDF on the NHTSA site with a tentative schedule of repairs by model year. Looks like it was already published back in August, and then updated again in mid September. Ive spoken to the dealer several times since then, and he had no idea such a schedule existed. The scariest bit is the current timeline has the 22's slated for NEXT AUGUST

**09/12/2023: FCA US will notify dealers and begin notifying owners, in phases, starting with the 2023 model year vehicles on or about 11/30/2023, 12/19/2023 for 2018 model year vehicles, 04/18/2024 for 2019 model year vehicles, 06/04/2024 for 2020 model year vehicles, 07/02/2024 for 2021 model year vehicles, and 08/01/2024 for 2022 model year vehicles

I called the dealer again on Friday 11/10, and based on a phone call with their Stellantis rep, my vehicle may get bumped up in line because technically it falls into the dealer owned inventory category. He seemed to think it may be "a few more weeks", but this is me not holding my breath.

I did get to do some truck things recently tho. Among other things, I hauled a crabapple with a 400lb rootball. Gravity helped a lot with the last 20 inches into the hole I dug. Thank goodness for spray in bedliner...

Some of my worst/most aggravating experiences with cars have been related to warranty situations (not so much recalls).  I never hesitated in going four-wheeling in a rental/loaner--I even did it in a Ford Escape (all-wheel-drive), and filled it with red dust.  I had a great time four-wheeling in a loaner Tacoma, even ripped a mud flap off in the process.  No one ever complained; they seemed generally happy to not have me scowling around the dealership.  Some people have even done track days in loaners . . .

It should be amazing that you get this level of drama with a clutch issue.
