Two questions.

1. Can I check the day somehow?
2. If I just bought the vehicle would they have fixed the problem before selling it to me?
Stick on driver(left) door edge, upper left says DATE OF BUILD which is the month and year. Bottom right of same sticker, MDH, month/day/hour.

Ah thanks, I didn't notice that, I checked I was September 4, 2015 which sucks for two reasons. I'll be included in this recall as I don't assume they would have done the repair prior to selling the vehicle and because Sept 4 was the day before a long weekend.

Build Date - September 4, 2015

My dealer been calling and sending post cards to me for 3 months about this recall, brought it in today to get the recall done and my oil changed, they call me at home about a hour later and tell me your Jeep is ready, I go get it and they tell me they don`t have parts available yet for recall RO27, check back in the 2 or 3 months, what the ****!!

LOL. Not surprisingly either as the R27 has been supeceded by R67 with a different part. Not that they probably even knew that...

Sent from a tiny mobile device with fat thumbs...

I just got my recall notice in the mail for Recall R27/NHTSA 15V-393 for "The power liftgate control module on your vehicle may experience a corrosion induced high resistance short circuit in the power liftgate control module electrical connector(s). The power liftgate control module electrical connector(s) could allow water intrustion and cause the module to become inoperative and/or cause a fire."

Have had the lift gate recall "fixed" one time and now it opens part time again! Had it in the shop two weeks ago and during a drizzle rain with an arm full of groceries it wouldn't open....😡😡😡
