Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Salmo,
I see the Taiko arrives in Melbourne on Tuesday 12th.
Left Auckland today and 4 days later your beauty is here.
Mine was an ORDER and CJA advised me that ORDER's have priority over floor stock. Wish theyd read their own Procedure Document.

Can give you 2 contacts within CJA manageement if you get frustrated.

I hope that isnt the case for you.

Bluey

Loose air tank, recalls, etc, etc means Chrysler and Fiat still do not take quality control seriously. When they will learn a lesson.

Whilst driving home tonight I tested the 'auto high beam control'. I think I pissed off a lot of people. Didn't seem to work.

It works, but dips a bit too late for my liking.

I did, but the engineering students took over my keyboard.
Did I mention Engineering Students?

My auto high beam is faultless. It amazes me how it detects everything. On the rare occasion because the car is angled the wrong way it can be a bit delayed not picking up the oncoming car but overall it probably does a far better job than I can do manually. It detects cars overtaking and drops the beam. It detects cars at side roads and drops the beam. My wife loves the audible voice telling me of the speed limit. Annette is only too pleased to be now redundant in that role.

I think it's fine but Sam (husband) thinks it is a little slow so he would agree with GMWK2 in that regard.

He tends to leave it as is on Auto but I do see him wince sometimes and mutter 'bugger - sorry mate' on occasion just because he wants to leave it to do its thing but I have noticed that he does intervene on the odd occasion.

That's a personal preference though and not a rebuke of the auto system of the vehicle. As I said, I think it's fine.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I will never complain about service costs for the Jeep. Just got off the phone to a friend and he has just picked up his Ferrari 360 Spider that was in for its 70,000kms service and it cost him - $15,300.00.

He has an itemised list of what they did but there was actually nothing that he can pinpoint that was actually wrong. Labour came to $8000.

His last service was 13,000kms ago and he says it drives just exactly the same as when he handed it over to them a week ago.

I feel so much better about the $375 service for MY14.

(But I do understand a Jeep is not a Ferrari but still....)

57, 000kms service intervals? I'd buy a ferarri for that...
