I will call the dealer tomorrow, I think he did not realized he fixed it ... the car feels great in all aspects ...

Dealer called that he got a new 730N unit and he recommends to replace it ... to be sure. After the navigation started working, had only one problem. I was stopped at US border crossing and playing with the navigation to find a POI nearby. The unit restart itself and for a few minutes, navigation was frozen with the coordinates from my previous stop. Anybody had this issue? Very happy with the jeep. I like 730N better than my previous garmin unit. I did a longer trip this weekend, added an intinerary with multiple stops and routing was very good.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

The rear windows make a loud howling sound when they are being rolled up. Sometimes it make that sound and sometimes it doesn't. I hope I don't get ding for that when I turn it in LOL

Oh and the transmission is super lazy. I BS you not, if I have to pass on a two lane road way I would shift the transmission down myself long before I pass the car. LOL

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

I had a rattle - today they discovered it was in the overhead console.
Has anyone noticed the distracting reflection of the A/C vents in side mirrors? Should be a dull finish to avoid this. Otherwise - still in love ! ♥

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

Minor but slightly annoying problem....my media center 430 that came with the X package "forgets" it's satellite radio presets sometimes. When I use the steering wheel mounted control to advance to the next preset (which may be a hundred channels up) it sometimes goes to the next channel in line instead (10 to 11 instead of 10 to 130). If i cycle through enough, it will sometimes "remember" and be fine again. Weird, but not enough of an issue to bring it in to be dealt with. Wonder if Jeep will come up with a software update that fixes it - I'd bring it in then...

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

I'm actually scheduled to bring in my Laredo with X to service on Monday - the 430 still is having issues - there are times when it works fine, other times the screen goes berzerk and starts flashing back and forth and I can't turn it off or change the volume/stations...I'm guessing they are going to have to replace it.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

Until they get the stalling figured out on my two V-6 Grande Cherokees when pulling away from a stop sign, I wouldn't buy another one. I am really irritated that on a $37,000 vehicle, the choke or engine fuel mixture doesn't work properly. I have to be careful pulling into fast moving traffic because the engine nearly dies and then recovers about 300 yards further on (on both 2011 Jeeps that I have). Dealer can't seem to fix this. Do we have to live with an problem like this? I now have 1,200 miles on mine and there has been no improvement in performance with this issue. Yes, you guessed it, I am not a happy Jeeper. By the way, this is my 6th and 7th Jeep Grande Cherokee over the years since 1995.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

The cruise control on/off button is dead from the factory. It is going in to get checked later this week.

15 years passing the name plates, and you still add an E to the Grand? I think Ford added the E long ago!

When you buy one, it's Grand. When you purchase a pair, it's Grande.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

The track skip button on the back of the steering wheel is wearing out already. I have to press it upwards 3, 4, 5 times sometimes to get it to skip to the next track. Other times it takes a single press. Sometimes I press the track up button and it goes back to the start of the current track.
