I'll agree with that assessment wholeheartedly. I have a '08 Buick Enclave that I bought in July of '07, one of the first batch to hit the dealerships. I've really loved this vehicle, and for me it's been practically trouble free, but the '08 MY are evidently having a very high catastrophic failure rate of the tranny between 60k and 100k miles. The fix to avoid this can cost $2k. Tranny replacement is $3k to $4k. Most owners were covered under the 5 year powertrain warranty. I've passed the 5 years, so I'm buying the Jeep. But I'll be getting the MaxCare Lifetime warranty, as I hope to keep the Jeep at least 10 yrs. You buy your ticket and take your chances!

Glad to hear of the "fixes"..what about the center console you mentioned?

I've seen multiple hundreds of BMW and Mercedes(and other manufacturers)with flawless paint. The flaws in my paint would be, and are, totally unacceptable for these high end customers/dealers/manufacturers.
I can speak from my BMW experience....a while ago, a new 2001 740I Sport...just flawless, in and out, and the paint job.... perfect. Can still pass anything on the highway, except......a gas station

Only issue with mine is a random smell inside... Smells like some type of fluid burning or very hot, no leaks and cant smell it outside of vehicle, temperature is normal, someone mentioned on a thread i started that the hemi has tons of stickers that melt and smell.
Hope its just that.
Other than that, i cant stop driving my first hemi equipped GC.

When I went by my dealer tonight I got out and looked at a limited that was aligned waaaay to far to the right too. Jeep really should have had this crap taken care of by now.

Re: Those who have a 2014, any problems? or problem free?

I had the Uconnect system freeze once and the shifter was broken on mine upon delivery, but the dealer has a replacement on order to fix this issue. Other than that, everything else has been flawless and I just rolled over 150 miles.

Re: Those who have a 2014, any problems? or problem free?

I have a rattle in the rear somewhere that's audible when driving over some of the concrete freeways around here. The dealer is going to look at it this Saturday. Aside from that I haven't had any issues.

Haven't had too many issues aside from the uconnect freezing. This is my first jeep, so I guess I'm probably biased and not afraid to completely love everything. The one thing that is KILLING me though, is that the Bluetooth won't stay connected when I turn the car off with my iPhone 4S. I have to pair it every time I want to go hands-free. Hopefully there'll be an update with the software soon.

I repaired it myself by just lifting the console panel up and reseating it properly.
I've seen a few on cars.com and they have the same misfit panel. Where are all the QC inspectors or does the UAW have no vision plan (highly doubt it) to get these folks some glasses and see what they are missing?

Re: Those who have a 2014, any problems? or problem free?

No issues here! Only problem I had was getting registered on Uconnect. Was more of a website or server issue and the registration got hung somewhere in the middle where the Jeep thought it was registered but the server didn't and wouldn't let me download apps or use the mobile app for remote starts etc. All got resolved after a series of phone calls to uconnect CS and restarts of the system.
