You are one very rare and lucky person. I wish I was you, we like our Summit very much but we seem to be having one problem after another with it. We bought our in May 2013 and I believe it was a march or april build.
Here's a list of our issues so far: Nav system radio/ mulitiple different problems, Passive entry, Clunk in rearend, N85 recall, paddle shifters loose, TSB for wire harness under the dash, headliner rattle. I quess we are lucky because there are a lot more issues that others are experiencing that we haven't YET. I quess time will tell.
I would look at the Acura MDX or the Mercedes GLK 350 for the same money. The GC seems to have a lot of quality control issues and problems. Again,we really like our Summit just gettiing really burned out going to the dealership every other week with a problem.
Bought a new Kia Optima SX-L Turbo around the same time and not one single issue period. The car has been perfect, maybe Chrysler could take some lessons from the guys at Kia. No disrespect intended either, its just they seem to take a lot of pride in their product quality. This is my third Kia since 2007 and not one has every given me problems. Thought about the Sorrento but its just not fuffy enough for me yet. I wouldn't by aother Ford for ahile either, to many damn rattles in them. Since 2007 I purchased 2 Shelby's, 2 F-150 Platinums, 1 Raptor, 1 Edge, 1 Focus everyone was the top of the line an I had multiple issues with everyone of them. That's why I decided to switch product brands and I'm having even worse luck with my Summit.
