Engine/Transmission/Etc. Updates - what are they for
I dropped in to a local dealer the other day to see if there were any recalls on my (somewhat recently purchased) 2007 Compass. The man said no, but there are PCM, transmission and who knows what other updates available.
OK - since I've never driven a modern Jeep I don't have a clue how to tell if I actually need the updates or not. If not, then why spend the money. If I do, then I don't mind - it's apparently part of auto ownership now. As you can image, this is all new to me - paying for updates for a vehicle and in fact, updates to begin with.
However, I digress. Has anyone ever had these updates done and if so, what are they supposed to fix? Like I said, if they are supposed to fix problems A, B and C and I'm not having those, why pay?
