I just purchased my first Jeep this past weekend, on 8/17! I got a 2014 GC Limited with the Lux II package and upgraded UConnect Nav system. I have a few questions that I've been searching this forum for.
Seeing your post, my first question is how do you know the build date of your Jeep? I've got a piece of paper that came in the Jeep with a barcode, the type of vehicle, some other ID numbers it looks like, and a timestamp (Jun 5, 2013 11:39). Would this be the build date? Besides that, all the paperwork only has the date of purchase on it. (I bought it from the lot, not an order).
With that being said, if Jun 5 is my build date, should I be concerned about the radio? A few things I have noticed so far: cannot for the life of me find out how to get the turn by turn directions of the nav into the EVIC cluster (this is supposed to be an option, right?), the outside temp is clearly wrong a decent portion of the time (saying it is 70 in Austin, TX in the middle of the afternoon in August is a dream), and my "analog" speedometer went blank one day when in a parking lot (it came back on later that day, and the weird thing is the digital speedometer option continued to work the whole time.).
I know that's a lot, and this may be the wrong place to post it, but you comment of the build date is what got me started. Sorry for any newbie mistakes!
