Deep breath.

Don't take crap from the dealer.

Ring FCA in Melbourne while standing at the dealer counter and suggest a conference call.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Also, at my last service, they left the car parked in the street for a few hours. 4 weeks after the service I received a final notice of parking infringement ($106). They did not tell me that there was a parking ticked issued against my car. When I left the car there I parked inside their garage not in the street.

I called them about the ticket and they said "sorry, we forgot to let you know. Just pay the fine and we will reimburse you". I paid the fine online and wrote the receipt number on the infringement notice and gave it to them. They won't reimburse now unless I provide a proper receipt from authorities. What a joke.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

If GMWK2's advice does not work, make the ACCC your friend. It seems FCA are on shaky ground with them, and each complaint looks like it is acted upon quickly by FCA.

Jeep dealers don't understand anything other than FCA or NCAT and most of the time not the first one.

Smash them with FCA complaints or NCAT, they will back down but dealing with them directly does nothing.

Just quietly, I bet the leather discolouring and transfer is actually from the products applied during the leather treatment when you bought the car.

Sounds like Parramatta Jeep. But they are all just as bad.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Wondering what users are replacing their stock MICHELIN LATITUDE TOUR HP's with?

I'm happy with the Michelin's but they are a tad pricey. I'm 90% bitumen travel and really bought my rig for towing.

I've done 25k and they're ok but was thinking of buying another set pre tax time. There's a minefield of options out there now in the 265/60RT18 range.

Just one site alone: https://www.tyroola.com.au/tyre/265-60-r18/

I went with Copper SRX tyres https://www.coopertires.com.au/our-range/SRX

Had them on for about 5,000 Klm's now. Awesome in all conditions (except off road of course) and so quiet. Have also noticed 1/2 Lt per 100 Klm improvement in fuel economy.

Cheers, Craig

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi Tillsy,
Glad to hear someone here has mentioned these tyres. I am almost ready for new rubber and these are on my shortlist.
I would be very interested to hear your opinion so far. Was it the 285r6018s that you went with?
If so do they fit without issues given that they are a bit wider?
Overall diameter is slightly up on the originals too as far as I can see. Did you go with a spare ...wondering how and if that fits inside??
Thanks in advance.
Cheers,Guy

I stuck with standard size. I haven't been off-road with them as such, but been through some dug up roads (clay sludge) and they felt real good. Day to day driving is very quiet - you do hear a hum from the tread on the bitumen but it's a nice hum... can't think of another way to explain it

Thumbs up Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I went with the Mickey Thompson ATZ's in the standard size. Done about 10k so far and all is good.
