Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

My vehicle is a MY14 LTD. I have noticed the trim inside the tailgate on the passenger side, does not seem to line up, and feels like there is nothing underneath ad the trim seems to bounce. Has anyone else noticed this on their's. I am unsure if this is a design issue, or mine has a problem.

My LTD doesn't have this problem, the trim has no gap, both panels fit tightly together with no noticeable give.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

A couple of times, the radio has locked and can't change stations or do anything else. Still plays fine on the station it was set to. Next time started the car, all good.

Laredo CRD

When taking off with the QL at entry/exit it seems to get stuck with 'raising' continually flashing. Only stops when I put into sport mode or hit 100km and it goes into 'aero' height.
Had the digital speedo display 3 flat lines. Had to change it to the analog to know what my speed was.

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!
Overheated new car, I would be getting a new one, as your engine is now been stressed. No tests will show this, other than time.

The QL stuck in raising is a known fault and there is a update for it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Not a fault as such, but thought we should post our experiences with the pitiful resolution of the camera's that Jeep Australia supply for the Laredo.

The unit Jeep supply and fit is substandard; grainy fish eye picture in the day and useless at night. Not only that, it points too far down and gives no sense where the Jeep is in relation to the reversing path (though I get a good view of the number plate!). I find mine is useless for reversing between pylons at my parking bay as by the time I see the closest one I have already bumped into it.

Jeep Australia denies any issue with these cameras. They say it does the job, even though under consumer law they could be considered as not fit for purpose given its uselessnes at night. Jeep Australia also deny this is widespread problem and suggested that mine was fitted incorrectly. I referred them to the main Jeep Garage Australia site pages. Even my dealer sticks to the story that all is ok and apparently I'm their only customer who has complained about it. The dealer also says that the lens view cannot be adjusted from its downward position.

I have also expressed a similar view regarding the camera and am still waiting for a reply from the dealer. You don't show a location in your profile so it is hard to see if we are in the same area.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

I keep getting the alarm - Service Air Suspension System - Immediately - Has done from 2 days old and dealership has no idea why. They just re-flash the module and hope all is going to be okay - It never leaves any error codes. Anyone else having this problem?

Yes I had a similar problem with air suspension a few weeks ago. It was a small hole in one of the airbags. Was off road for 3 weeks while one was ordered from US. All good now.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Hi All

Got new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and clocked 250 kms. But having few issues...... Any recommendations???

1. Strong tyre burning smell when driving car. Smell is from the front tyres. Not sure if its because the car and tyres are brand new

2. At random times the driver side front speakers stop working for a few seconds and then comes back on. Happens on radio / USB / DISC / AUX

3. Front seat memory adjustment didnt work couple of times but now seems to work

Any suggestion will be helpful

Thanks
Abhi
