Re: Biggest Disappointment

-The infamous "shudder" issue it's getting really annoying.
-No key fob confirmation on remote start.
-No power mirrors
-When it rains, the droplets that collect on the back-up camera lense. Can't see bunk behind me.

Re: Biggest Disappointment

Second these:

-When it rains, the droplets that collect on the back-up camera lense. Can't see bunk behind me.
-Instrument panel cluster. You can't see the analog speedometer unless the steering wheel is cocked as high as it can go.


Also:

- A pillars are way too big. They block the view in turning, at the stop sign, etc.
- Hard to find a comfortable position with the driver's seat. Especially the lumbar support. I was impressed by the comfort feel in the seat of an MDX during test drive.

Re: Biggest Disappointment

Some things I'd suggest Jeep Do A Bit Different:
  1. Seat Too Firm - The overland seats are VERY firm / rigid. Perhaps they will break in but it wasn't the plush seat I was expecting
  2. Seat Bottom A Bit Too Narrow - I feel like I'm sitting on the seat's side bolsters most of the time
  3. Dash -
    1. The bright green headline dash lights need to be dimmed / dim-able
    2. Can see the analog speedometer as it is blocked by the steering wheel
  4. 430N - the Bluetooth phone software needs some work as it is only intermittantly successful in completing a call in an area with good cell coverage. I've had complaints that the peson receives the call but can't hear me. I don;t even know they answered the call. The in-dash phone makes no sound indicating that it has connected to the party you are calling. You don't know if it is dialing or another problem call with no sound.

Re: Biggest Disappointment

The wife and I really love our new Jeep and have very, very little to complain about. I do think that it is a glaring omission for Chrysler, and many other car companies, not to include HD Radio capability in the factory systems. Seems like they are too deeply in bed with Sirius otherwise this would be a very simple add-on.

Other than that, my only complaint is that it doesn't clean itself.

Re: Biggest Disappointment

I agree with DJWeaver:

Dash -
  1. The bright green dash lights need to be dimmed / dim-able.
I am thinking about cut/paste some window tint over the areas "neatly" to tone it down. Thoughts?

Re: Biggest Disappointment

The headlight indicator isn't that bright, must be a whole lot of aging eyes in this forum, lol
