RE: 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee SE - cracked manifold - $ 975.00 for parts and labor Hello, I am the owner of a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee SE which has developed a crack in the exhaust manifold. I spoke with the dealer from whom I purchased the vehicle two years ago and was informed that this defect does not pose a serious enough safety issue to warrant a recall. The dealership also informed me that the repair/replacement of this item was estimated to be about 975.00 for parts and labor. My concern is two-part: First, does the exhuast along with carbon monoxide which is leaking from the manifold eventually make it's way into the passenger compartment posing a health risk? And second, does this leaky exhaust negatively affect the emissions system of the vehicle causing an environmental risk? I have spoken with several other Jeep owners who have the exact same problem who were as surprised as I was that no recall has ever been issued. Jeep needs to take responsibility for their poor design and, at no cost to the owner, replace all Jeep manifolds which have developed this same problem. Sincerely,

Mike Elicson
