Indeed, if it is real, then you need a "lemon law" attorney. There are many of them, and as with hiring any professional, you will need to try to determine which one will give you the appropriate quality legal services, have good prices, and be someone you can work with.
The seat heat in my 2014 Overland did come on once when I had not set it to do so. The navigation also got lost once, despite a clear view of the sky for obtaining the GPS signals. Overall, the entire navigation system is far, far too slow, and insult to those of us who wrote big checks to buy these vehicles. Even though we paid a pile, I'm sure all of us would have gladly paid a few hundred dollars more to have a fast, state of the art navigation system, and some other missing things such as 10-way,not 8-way, seats.
My Nav works fine. You should get yours fixed. Many GPS devices stay on standby (basically a lock) when you shut them off, in case you need them shortly they will come back on instantly. The Jeep seems to go into a WARM GPS boot even if you shut the car off for a minute. That part is stupidly slow (i.e. Activating GPS, I believe is doing a warm GPS lock). A cold GPS lock can take many many minutes.
Even on perfectly blue sky days, GPS satellites can be harder to lock on than a stormy cloudy day. Weather has little to do with it. My Radar Detector loses lock once in while. My phone rarely does, but sometimes can have a less accurate lock. Some devices have good compass/gyro to get you through a bumpy GPS signal (i.e. a tunnel).
I think it's perfectly fine and probably wise to use anonymous identity online. His/Her post sounds quite consistent with lots of posts. Bet ya it's not a late in the year built Jeep. Really dumb comment and I know who said it
The issues could be fixed. I suspect he needs a new Radio. At some point Jeep upgraded the radio. Later builds have them. Some got warranty replacements. Others have no issue. I suspect I have a later one. Overall I love it.
I think every ones threshold of what they need to put up with varies. I'd probably be pretty unhappy too. I'm so glad I accidently ended up with a late in the year build. I think I avoided the xmas tree recall (and the rather bumpy fix), older radio nightmares and earlier transmission firmware problems.
One person got his Jeep replaced from an early build to a late build and sounded like he was in heaven. Some dealers are quick to replace radios. But even that can be tricky because the radio is so coupled to the car, changing it, has it's own set of issues and risks. It all depends so much on the dealer.
