As cars are more electronic than ever, the vast majority of problems that news owners typically experience are software related. No idea how FCA plans to address these welding issues, as I don't feel like spot fixes are really a solution.

in the worst case scenario they might have to do a buy back which reminds me, lemon laws should be looked at and considered if it comes down to that.

They wont be spot welding, that's a given. And to be honest if I was a new JL owner I'd be asking for a replacement model instead. $50k for a new JLU and they want to put a band aid on something this serious.

if they do a buy back I won't be surprised they get fixed and sold elsewhere in a market that would be more receptive to such models.

We'll need to wait and see just how far reaching this issue is, before we can determine the best route for FCA to take. If it only affects the estimated 4% of models, then they can easily get away with just doing some spot repairs.

last time it was well into the million marker, I just hope this time around they learned and have lessened the odds of it spreading that far.
