A couple of days ago the traffic was backed up at the traffic lights and my Nav displayed a car accident, but there was no debris on the road when we passed!! The next afternoon the Nav still showed a prang at the same intersection. I will try it again this afternnon.

My trans shifting seems to be getting rougher also.
I believe there is a trans flash update available to fix the problem but i have not had it done yet.

Just had my tow bar replaced so all good now.

They also put a 12 pin plug on instead of the 7 pin large round. I now need to change the plug on the van but it will probably be better as I can now use the 12 pin for the ESC connection instead of a second Anderson plug as it is a bit crowded around the hitch. i will put a separate switch in the ESC wiring so it can be turned off when off roading.

Now for the camera and park sensors!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Most of the time my contacts work ok when using the VR, but i can not get it to ring mum, it goes and finds random contacts for me to choose from. Most other commands work pretty well as long as i speak nice and clearly for it.

Took the car for a bit of a run this morning, Hallett Cove - Deep Creek - Victor Harbour - Hallett Cove. 186 kms between filling up used 15 lts, approx 8.3lts per 100ks. kept the speed about 80, hit 90 and 100 a couple of times. No steep hills, just rolling & undulating. Did a little bit of dirt road work, 4WD/low, QL2 and used down hill descent. Would be nice if 4WD low would engage at very slow speeds rather than having to stop QL is great on the dirt, hit a few corrugated patches and the air suspension really smooths out the ride.
Got about 850 on the clock now. Staying at 80km/h is so hard, the car is very quiet, almost no road noise and so smooth.
I also like the way the nav is set for a destination it shows up in the speedo for the next turn required
So far very happy.

Congratulations, very nice looking vehicle. Now remember to give the same attention to your other partner.

So Friday came with an interesting 'next day mail' package in the mailbox..... And low and behold it's a cheque and a somewhat apologetic letter. Who would of thought after all the arguments and cranky phone calls, that we will actually get paid for their stuffup (even if they call it goodwill)!

Either way, take note of the two names on the bottom of the document. Haven't dealt with them directly before but it's handy to know who is who in such a secretive company that doesn't even advertise their postal address.

I hope you guys (and girls) won't ever need to take it that far, but it's handy to know just in case you can't get anywhere with the customer service staff
