Break the fuel pump? Really?

Not really. But it did require a decent amount of force.

There has to be something wrong with your setup- I have now gone to 3 different gas stations (4 fills) and have never had a problem with the cap less. Is it possible the rubber flap is defective ?

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

My 14 Summit popped up a message on the nav screen today that said " Vehicle Phone Not Ready - See Dealer". I noticed Bing search not working.
Wonderful, guess I'll be visiting the dealer soon and I'm sure they won't know what to do.

Well, it worked fine tonight. Not sure what was wrong the other day but it just didn't want to go in. Today I put it in and out several times and not a problem at all. Weird. Same gas station too.

Loving my 2014 GC - Only problem I've had is needing the dealer to replace the A/C compressor on day 2. Appears that the original compressor was DOA - should have been diagnosed before delivery. Other than that, all is good.

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

A little over 300 miles and two weeks and almost all is well. I posted my observations re: the odd outside temp readings (stuck on colder than air temp and moves up after maybe 10 minutes, but not all the way to the outside temp - that takes longer, if it ever happens. Example 43 degree outside temp reading during two drives today - it was 68 and then 70 out). There was some ballpoint pen on the door panel leather - dealer says Chrysler will address that. Other than that, it's quiet, it's smooth and I really enjoy it. The UConnect 8.4" system has been fine - and I like that it reminds me when there's a Red Sox game on.

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

Going on a week with my Limited and only a couple small issues. UConnect for some reason takes forever to bring up my traffic/weather station when I use the traffic button. Easier to just program the station as a favorite and go to it that way. Only other issue is a small paint defect in the driver for right below the chromed trim under the window. Bugs the shit out of me, but I'm not about to screw with the factory paint finish. My 2011 JK Unlimited took $6k worth off hail damage at 5 months old and it's now two different shades of yellow. I actually hope it gets pummeled again this season on that side so I can have all that work redone by a better body shop.

GC h has Ben great other than those minor issues though.

Just got my new 2014 GC Laredo. Loving it so far! The only issue I'm having (other than Bluetooth not remembering my DROID bionic-not the end of the world) is I notice a slight click/tick sound behind the steering wheel/instrument cluster when the it shifts around gears 6 and 7 at low speeds (15-25mph). It definitely sounds electronic and not mechanical, and it does not affect the driving at all. I believe it only happens when I'm in ECO mode though. I've only had the car since Saturday and haven't noticed it every time (only have 180 miles on it). I will be going on a short road trip this weekend, so I plan on really noting when I actually hear it. Has anyone else heard a similar noise?
