I have one like that and it's crap, jerky on reversing, useless in bright sunlight & dark. Oh and did mention no gridlines

About the only redeeming feature is it's view onto the towball for hitching.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Since 30k service and 3 updates have been applied, a few weeks ago, I have noticed that the litres per hundred kms readout in the cluster display responds a lot faster. And before the service my around the town number was about 9 or 9.2 lts and now it gets down to 8.6, will have run a couple of tanks of juice and see if im getting more distance to the tank.

My around town is 11 in stop start traffic.... I suppose that is what happens with oversize tyres and a lift.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I don't reckon a lift is going to hurt your fuel consumption in stop start traffic.

That mentioning a lift in context with stop start fuel consumption is irrelevant. Tyres... sure.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yep, I am getting 12 doing the school run and going to the shops. Lots of cold motor driving in a hilly area, and the bigger tyres, and right foot. But on the open rd I get back down to 8-9.....

The cruiser used to be 14+.....
