Re: 2014 GC Totally $#@% dead

@marosenb - finally got on the computer to view this thread and now see the picture! Nice vehicle!

Spoke with the lawyer just now and Chrysler has made an offer I am happy with to basically wash my hands of the vehicle. I'm not obligated to even buy another Chrysler product, but we will most likely be buying another GC. I can't see buying anything else at this point.

While I am tempted to just keep this vehicle, as we've grown attached to it (problems and all), I am looking forward to a fresh start with a vehicle that hasn't had a bunch of modules replaced already, including the transfer case.

I think this time I will get one with the towing package, just in case, but other than that we'll probably be looking for an identical replacement if we can find one.

Should take a couple weeks for the buyback to happen. Guess I have to start car shopping again and then hope that lightning doesn't strike twice.

AMC,
I think you are making the right decision. Even of it is good now, that vehicle had too many concerns for you to be comfortable with long term.

Re: 2014 GC Totally $#@% dead

See STAR Case S1308000238 - sound familiar ? New ones should have the fix even if we are not told what it is for now. Suspect there will be a check on all '14s are they come in for service. Wonderful thing about the internet is that nothing stays secret for long. Too bad CJF has not realized that yet.

I believe it will be dealt with yes but it only affects some vehicles. Those who are concerned about it may PM me.

How do you look up Star case numbers? My dealer opened a star case regarding my blind spot issue on my summit.

Upgrade to the Overland they come with the tow package and you'll love the ride with the air suspension.

There are 2 different STAR Cases. One a dealer can open which is actually a Technical Assistance Case that the support centre will follow up on and the other are the are ones posted for dealer info.

The second ones are the ones that are pretty important as they are a summary of a number of cases opened with Chrysler and offer information about what was gathered from prior issues.

Your STAR Case is specific to your dealer and or you could refer to it if you went to another dealer but the dealer who opened it would need to give that to you. Only the district service reps can see that other than the dealer.

Thank you for clarifying.

I'm sure I would, but the budget was already maxed out with the limited.

I'm not pushing one over the other, but you might find bigger discounts now.
