Update. According to the service guy, the handbrake sensor is located in the spare wheel well, which they found to be full of water. No idea how that happened, we did have torrential rain a few days before the issue poked its head up, but I didn't see anything to suggest the car had leaked anywhere. Service guy is leaning towards blocked drain holes in the sunroof but I didn't have any other symptoms to suggest this was the culprit, like wet floor etc. I know there was a recall for water getting into the back hatch and causing problems, maybe that was it. The part required isn't in Australia at present and may take at least 2 weeks to get here.
Here we go, I'm thinking, all the Jeep service complaints I read about may have some traction. I then read that Jeep sales are down 50% in Australia and my heart sank a bit lower. Last night I received a call from a car rental company. They are delivering, to my door, a hire car to use while my car is out of service. When my car is ready, I can drop it at the dealership and they will pick it up and I drive my car home. That is great I thinks, I can deal with a Corolla or Hyundai in the interim.
A brand new Chrysler Pimp model, sorry, 300C, turned up this morning.
How good is that!
Cars have problems and things can go south after that, like no parts in the country, the company's response is how you judge them.
I still love my Jeep, and more than happy with the way they are handling this.
