I just bought a 2014 Overland about a week ago... It has been in the shop twice now because of issues. The radio has a mind of its own. Yesterday she didnít want to start. Last weekend the backup camera didnít work. The car is not giving any error code to the dealer so now I am having to record when the jeep is acting up for the dealer to believe me. I have about had it with the overland. I contacted Chrysler yesterday to get these issues expedited. I drove her for two days and she left me stranded on the side of the rode because the radio decided to turn all the way up and blow the heat on 90... I couldnít do anything to the jeep. I pulled over opened the door and turned her off but she didnít want to turn off herself... So I got the hell out and called the dealer. Towed her in... Called me two days later. Truck was fine. I have no idea what to do. Itís something new every other day.
I am having loads of issues with my Overland with only 500 miles. Uconnect being one of the big things. I have spoken to over five people at jeep and uconnect and no one can give me a straight answer. I had no issues with my 2011 Overland and right now I wish I could trade it back. For those people thinking of buying a 2014 wait a couple of months, I wish I had now, there are just way too many issues.
I have read a lot of these forums and am astounded that so many are having the same issues as me. These vehicles were supposed to turn Chrysler around and the 2011 did but these 2014 are going to put a black eye on them all over again. I have owned jeeps for over 18 years, I have never had so many issues before and its getting very aggravating.
I called jeep today checking on my ordered summit(scheduled to be produced 3/8 but no movement yet) I asked about the unconnect issue and was told that they are aware of the issue. The representative told me that if you have an iPhone, iPhones have some kind of security measure that locks out. She said it is not an issue with uconnect but with the Apple software. I hope either way I do not have issues. My iPhone is at version 6.1.3 and they are good with 6.0. Her recommendation was not update my iPhone anymore. Not my idea of a solution
For 47k for a new summit, i would hope that when mine comes these issues will be resolved. almost bought a 4runner but liked the options on the jeep gc summit
