The service department have been helpful here however they have no technical data or feedback (No flagged fault NO PROBLEM) as yet and I cant find too much info on the 8 speed tranny on the net but they are going to follow-up my concerns. Have read that others also have the same highway drive temperatures so it seems normal but is it correct. (93degC I believe is hot for a transmission unloaded).
The owners manual states to down shift if excessive shift cycling occurs to prevent overheating when towing. I just want to know from JEEP what to expect, it's not that HARD is it or am I just expecting too much.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Hi Guys,

First time post for me. I wish it was a more positive one. I bought a Grande Cherokee Overland CRD delivered in August. It has overheated since day one. Strong coolant burning smell coming from car like it has bee thrashed. Jeep diagnosed the fault as a faulty PCM not sending a signal to the high speed cooling fan, ordered a new one and said it would be a few days. Now 8 weeks later still no PCM or even a time frame to get one. Apparently all new PCM's have been assigned to new vehicles and they cannot spare one off the assembly line. To add to this 4 weeks ago we were driving down the street and the vehicle shuddered violently under braking, then the dash lit up like a crhistmas tree (error messages: 4wd unavailable, ABS disabled, traction control disabled, cruise control stopped working etc). This fault was diagnosed as a wheel speed sensor but these parts are not available either. So for a new vehicle with 3,000klms on it, half of its life has already been spent in the garage waiting for parts. This is not good enough. We are now persuing legal action through the Australian Consumer Law. My advice from our experience HOLD BACK!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Just an update on my previous post. The wheel speed sensor arrived and was installed yesterday however this did not fix the problem so now they believe there may ba a major mechanical fault and it is back to the diagnostics. * weeks for a PCM, still not delivered. 4 weeks off the road with the wheel speed sensor now back to the drawings board. This Brand new vehicle has only been on the road for 3 weeks. QUALITY!

One out of 100, 000 has to be a lemon and unfortunately it looks like you got it.
Ask them for a new one.

I'm still waiting for the delivery. Your mishap makes me nervous. Chrysler is not renown for quality n reliability.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

A little bit of good news. I got a phone call this afternoon and the wheel speed problem is apparently fixed. The whole hub was replaced as apparently there was foreign material (swarf from when the hub was machined) within the hub. The hub was taken off another new car in the lot so hopefully this has sorted that problem. Now just need a resolution to the overheating (i.e. a new PCM), and some compensation and extended warranty. I will kep this forum updated.

Sorry to hear about those issues. How bad is the oil leak?

Took vehicle to another dealer.
Leak was the result of a loose oil pressure switch. All updates applied and problems rectified.
Picked car today so far all good.

I would have thought that would mean all Jeeps at least on that delivery, would have the same issue, or there was something different done to my car or it has something else wrong.

Anyway it's currently working well again and is great to drive after a couple of days in a little Kia loaner. Was told it will never happen again, will have to see...
Update: Car has now done 8,000kms and haven't had the limp mode issue again which is great. Still having the Nav/Radio screen freezing issue from time to time but the dealer said there is now a fix for that so have to take it in. Also have had the dash display completely shut down, no speedo, no gauges, nothing and they said they hadn't heard of that. Also had the speedo display but without any numbers or graduations on it last night so that's another new one for me.

USB power slots seem to be selective about charging and front cigarette power stopped working after I used the compressor but they may just be a fuse.

On a side issue, I discovered during towing that the tow ball was never fitted properly and the nut was half-way down the thread! Luckily I was pulled over by another driver who noticed otherwise I would have made an absolute mess doing 90kms with a full trailer load.

Pardon my colloquial Englishism, but your dealer is a fkn idiot.
Not only is there a fix for your dash illumination issue, itís an official recall.

Stopped reading to type this, just read the rest of your post.
I doubly agree with my first statement.
Who are they, as I would like to know to never take my car there?
