Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hitting the road from Melbourne in a couple of weeks. Up to Karumba etc then across to Cairns. MY14 GC CRD will be due for a half life service then. Anyone had experience with Irelands Jeep in Cairns. Basic oil change and grease thats all. If no good can get the service done in Townsville.
Any advice?

Do you get your oil from there too?

Heading in to see the Dealer about sludge on walls of the coolant bottle on Monday still can't get them to put the details of the oil that is being used when servicing my vehicle but I am told by email that I will be given details when I go in. LOL... nothing in writing!
Well I'll be requesting it be noted on the service docket.
Let me see how this pans out. They better be using some thing that's designed for dpfs with euro spec or I'll be changing the oil and filters myself with another long letter to JEEP Australia.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi All, been a while since I've posted. Trust all I well with you all.
Removed the Air Filter cover, and also found the air filter had split all the way through on one corner, with the other 2 sides split open - but no open all the way as yet.
Off to the dealer we go.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Bout time another vehicle took the heat from us

Holden recalls 26,000 Colorado utes and SUVs because they might catch fire

Quote:
The latest safety bulletin makes Holden the most recalled car brand so far this year; last year Holden had the equal highest number of recalls with Jeep, with each issuing a record 14 notices.

Checking in Qld dealers and it appears they are all using a dealer Castrol Oil and no it does not the require specs, but they tell me that they have clearance to use this oil from Jeep Australia, so i supply my own oil. Mobil ESP

Hey Bluey, you can't go wrong with Irelands in Cairns. They are probably one of the best dealers/service centers I've come across. Good service and reasonably well priced...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Been a while since last posted - Ive recently had a couple of gremlins pop up in the jeep. Recently the alarm has been going off at random times for no reasons, and while driving the red alarm light comes on solid. Usually this light is only on, blinking, when the car is locked to indicate the alarm is set. Doesnt affect the car in any way while driving. Dealer applied a software update for the issue and it appears to have sorted it so far. Cant recall the TSB as im at work.

Other issue is a bit more of a pain - the head unit touch screen will no longer register your touch inputs. The only place you can get it to register is at the bottom where you would select media, climate etc, problem is if you did touch there it would act as if you touched the skip track song button, so it was registering the touch as higher then it was. Tried all the resets etc - took it to the dealer yesterday, they advised that it would need to be replaced, something to do with that year/model radio having issues, so its must have come up before. Build date for car was 4/2013. Either way at least it will be sorted, will probably take 2 weeks to get the new radio here and installed.

I dont recall reading of anyone having these issues on here before but could be wrong, so figured id mention them. Cheers.

The bright side is that they might replace your head unit with the new DAB one.
