I only have just over 300 miles on our 2014 Limited, and we're an "Android family," but *knock knock* no issues so far.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit issues!

Well lets see,, I love my new Jeep, I have had it for 16 days and have put 1500 miles on it. Uconnect has been dead almost from day 1. My liftgate isn't aligned properly, I had several small scratches in the paint at delivery, and now,,,,, my battery was dead and i had to jump start it. $54,000 cash for a new car and all these problems worry me that the future might hold even more issues. Was thinking i should ask the dealer to extend the warranty from 3 to 5 years for free. Tomorrow i will be taking it in to have these issues addressed which means i am subjecting my new Jeep to further troubles because the dealer will have it all day without me being there to watch over it! SCARY

Wow that is incredible I can't wait to hear how the repairs and negotiations go for you! Agreed for the top of the line(non srt) you would expect perfection...hell for a 25k everything should be perfect

Yeah, my knock knock did nothing to save me. Mine died over the weekend. Hoping the tow truck didn't damage it at all while leaving it in a lot over the weekend and then towing to the dealer tomorrow morning. Hoping its something simple.

Guess i need to add to this. Today when i got ready to take it to dealer, battery was dead again. I connected the cables, let it charge for a few minutes, then went to push start button and all i got was a loud pop! that seemed to come from under the dash. I couldn't tell if it was the speakers, or something else. After that happened it did start a few minutes later. What could of caused the pop/explosion sound? Dealer said they might need to keep it for a few days. They gave me a caddi to roll that looks like lt has been in a demolition derby competition.

Got home from Dealer. Everything was #&@(ed! They didn't fix even 1 of my problems! they said there was nothing that could be done about the liftgate being out of alignment, unless they cut out the rear window. They never addressed the uconnect issues, and instead went to the battery issues(prob. caused from Uconnect) They said i have to bring it back tomorrow so they can load test it for the entire day again! And,,, to make matters worse, they scratched the front bumper while removing the cover on the park assist, they took out a piece in my dash and scratched the leather dash, and when i told him about these things, i was told "come on Jim, it's only a car" ONLY A CAR! I paid $54,000 for this Jeep and don't appreciate them being so ignorant! Can't wait for Wed. so i can leave it there all day again.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit issues!

Albert Einstein (probably incorrectly) has been quoted as saying, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result." I'm not casting dispersions on your sanity, but don't you think it's time to find another service department?

Have seriously been considering just that. The only problem is the next closest service dept. is 70 miles away.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit issues!

Maybe give their service manager a call and see what he (or she) says.

Damn James that's crazy? Where did you order your Jeep from? I'm in NM to but I'm in Albuquerque, we ordered a Summit also, but we did it last Saturday. I don't believe it will be here until end of May or Mid June, but I hope we don't experience any of your issues...I feel for you...Maybe you need to get on the horn with Jeep. That is way ridiculous for a 54K ride...
