Yeah, not the best looking car going around. GC does look more stylish by far.

Just a follow up on the above, I checked my Air Filter and I also found that the sealing gasket was split in a number of places, so seems to be a general problem with these Filters.
I fitted my Ryco one and I am glad to report that the quality is excellent and maybe even better than the original, the filtering medium in the genuine has 64 elements compared to the 70 in the Ryco, so more filtering area. As to the gasket seal is is identical being a soft type of silicone, even down to the same shape and colour.
Very happy to use this filter and save some money as well.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yep, typical, happy as I am with ours, even with one limp mode incident, I just don't feel confident about owning it long term.
I really do hope the all new Pajero is ticks all my boxes whenever it finally comes out.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Does the Laredo come with a rear cargo blind? I have two and am wondering if one is saleable, or if I should just bury it under the house.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Fair comment. Maybe I should bin it and save the space under the house for redundant AV and computer equipment.

Unfortunately we don't have the "LEMON" Laws that the US seem to have. If you go through the forums on JG quite a few seem to have been bought back by Jeep in the US. My experience thru the ACCC here was it became the dealerships responsibility. Had the April 13 built vehicle 4 days, 120km and returned to dealer, never drove it again. They just could not fix (Engine Vibration,HVAC,No Screens) due to lack of spares and too many electronic issues at the time. 3 months from original delivery date I receive a new replacement (July built). This one was all working fine until it's 1000km service other than the cooling system seemed a little weak for our summer heat but some updates were done!
It's going in on Monday again for the HVAC issue with JA permission to actually change some components in the system to try and investigate what's going on instead of just throwing updates at it. Unfortunately they thru all the updates available at this vehicle in an attempt to resolve the HVAC issues. In doing this they also did the transmission update that I had requested not to have done as mine was fine. Now it has the 1st to 2nd lag again and the diesel braking downshift is very harsh at low speeds (back to where it was 12 months ago). 14-104 was also carried out but still the clatter returns on occasions and other days it's absolutely perfect. This vehicle has never let me down and it performance is fantastic but I am totally disappointed in Jeeps ability and the onboard diagnostics to identify and rectify any abnormal issues with this vehicles systems.
