So I got one of those “Vehicle Recall” notices in the mail


Why? I can think of many reasons.

    Wonder if that recall will apply to my 2000 Cherokee? Nah, probably not.

    My wife has received several recall notices for her Malibu explaining that her car may have a life threatening issue and parts to correct said issue “may” be available in six months….or so. Each notice. GM mind you.
    I’ve had a ’96 and a ’97 cherokee sport, two wheel drive, as it does not snow down here.
    The ’96 never had any of the crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor issues until my teenage children got ahold of the car. Beyond that, they just trashed it. Burned the back tires bald, broke the drive shaft. Wrecked it.
    The ’97 that my son drove seemed to have them habitually.
    I loved that ’96 Jeep.

    As for the rear end collision and the fuel tank leak, I did get rear ended in the ’96. I had a trailer hitch. The Dodge Durango that hit me had a plastic front end. I drove home. The Durango got towed, sans coolant.

    • Did you click on my link? I mean, the main reason my jeep probably needs to be looked at is because it’s been parted out and otherwise sold for scrap since 2010. I mean, I don’t want to say that it’s a big reason, but it’s definitely a BIG reason.
