I'm not knocking Jeep... cause I want to get one. Just bewildered about some of the 2014 issues occurring.
I think that whatever brand you check you'll find things like this. Those you are not following on a forum you just don't know about.
Acura/Honda have a great rep. When I bought my '11 MDX people were complaining about "Low Battery" warning and transmission shudder. For almost a year, Acura blamed the customers for "over using accessories" and taking too many short trips. It turned out to be the sensor was set wrong. They then did a firmware update for the transmission. Whatever the problem, they must have thought it could cause internal problems. It was the only firmware update I ever saw that included changing the transmission fluid. A lot of folks, including me, had doors that never looked like they were closed. The dashboards were all shifted to the left (uneven gaps) for a number of years. Acura made no attempt to correct it, year after year.
I had a great dealer, but Acura was nothing to write home about.
As I mentioned in a prior post, a Jeep was the only car (of 14 purchased new) that never went in for warranty work.
I am not defending Jeep ... they are far from perfect. Just saying if you check almost any auto forum, you'll see the dirty underwear.
