Ah, but Jeeps and water don't mix you know.

You could try to hire one of course but don't do it with Hertz.

I was in Switzerland a couple of weeks ago and hired a sweet little Jeep Renegade from Hetrz.
This is what I got instead.

ugly little duckling, a Nissan Joke.

One good point, the reversing camera was brilliant, one in back, one in front and one in each side mirror giving a 360degree view. Good for parking in tight spots or on the edge of things.

You couldn't turn up to "camp Jeep" with it though its a bit too "camp"

Echoing your *sigh* Captain.

The location looks fabulous, but then I'm a sucker for a good scenery shot (oh - and the wine). That wouldn't go astray either.

Steve - You hired a Renegade and got a Juke!. Did they run out of Renegade's?

It would have been great for you to get the Renegade and report back on it.

Funnily enough, I found myself googling 'Jeep Hire' in Europe. Not for this year, but maybe next year - if they run it again.

Interesting to have a reversing camera in the front. I think the French were inspired by the Italian army as they invented this feature with their tanks during WWII. It made retreating a lot safer! (I'm Italian - keep your pants on)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yes in the Hertz minivan/suv Jeep Renegade (group Z) "or similar." it says.
I was hoping to test it out because its not released here yet.



In Hertz France you could Hire a Renegade also, but I suspect the insurance would forbid taking it off road. Also it probably wouldn't pull the skin off of a rice pudding with only a tiny engine.

Jeeps are quite popular in Switzerland it seems, I noticed quite a few MY14 JGC's and loads of Wranglers and I only saw 1 x Toyota Prado the entire week.
I was there on a work trip not for driving around but did manage to get a look at a bit of scenery.



The Nissan complete 360 parking view with 4 cameras was a good little gadget.
Split screen, with dynamic gridlines and beeping sensors and everything. A good idea on a hire car which hasn't got any corners on the body that are visible from inside the cabin.


I'd like to stick a little camera on the front of the JGC and another on my caravan for rearview. Thinking of doing the Customtronix setup that's talked about on a another thread here.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can you imagine a Laredo with 4 crap cams? If you tried to use them, it would be like driving in a whiteout.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I erroneously posted this elsewhere, so this is a duplicate

It seems that there are new maps for the 2014 JGC for North America.

Chrysler Group | Jeep | Grand Cherokee | 2014 | CHRYSLER GROUP- 2015 NORTH AMERICAN MAP FOR UCONNECT® 8.4A OR 8.4AN NAVIGATION SYSTEM (RA3/RA4) | HERE

But I can't find any reference to new Australian maps. Has anyone seen anything? The release of the NA maps gives me some hope....

Negative Ghostrider, what they are selling at $150US a pop is 2013 maps - so a mere 1 year newer and thus still 2 years old.

Idiots

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi All,

I'm finally picking up my MY15 JGC Overland on Wednesday!! My girl's in Bright White. Just wondering if there are any Bright White Limited owners out there that would be interested in swapping your black wheel arch trims for my Bright White Overland trims? I've read a few posts where Limited owners are going to the trouble of painting theirs. Anyone interested?
