Having used my in-laws Highlander I can totally say that it has to be the worst infotainment system I've used, closely followed by Chevrolet's MyLink.

This is also why I opted for the JGC than a Honda Pilot. Their head unit did not impress me.

Consumer Report also rated the Grand Cherokee as the worst of the worst... I tend to not pay attention to publications with Dissociative Identity Disorders because it is hard to know what motives determined each unstable personality to write an article.

I agree i typically dont listen to CR concerning vehicles they are good on other products though. These were owner satisfaction survery results vs some CR opinion. I posted it exactly for the reson thst it was good to see the Japanese vehicles not favored for once. At the end of the blurb they did state it was too bad CR recommended very few Chysler vehicles.

Re: 8.4 uconnect highest satisfaction July 2016 CR

Uconnect system is excellent. Never any problems with it and it just always work well and is very easy to use. My wife has a 2015 Honda Odyssey Touring and as much as I like Honda vehicles, the system is usually just a huge pain to use. Trying to put in an address while driving with voice recognition is usually the most ridiculous process ever and you will literally want to kill yourself attempting it lol. With Uconnect, simply state the entire address all in one shot and your done and it typically works the first time everytime. In the Honda, you literally have to state the address, wait for it to read it back, then the street, then the city, and it usually gets everything wrong anyway. It is by FAR more unsafe than if they would have just let you input stuff while driving.
