The nearest dealer is 7.7km away!! Your experience is unacceptable, I have owned 6 new cars in the past 10 years and have NEVER heard of such poor service before.
They said that to me twice when it was towed. They said get it back off the dealer but asked the tow truck driver and he said there is no extra charge. The jeep assist people just read off the manuscript. Did you have to pay?

In the absence of any scientific proof (anecdotes don't count IMO), I'd put electronic rust protection in the same category as Brock's energy polariser and Hiclones. Besides, the auto industry are pretty good at anti-corrosion techniques at the manufacture phase.

My daughter drives a 1998 Toyota, full of stone chips. These have had no more than the slightest discolouration from minor surface rust, and some of these chips are 10 years old!

Such a pity as they look great and protect the door. I will be pulling them off and getting side steps in the next few weeks.
I have posted a formal "Thanks" Colozzie. Good of you to let all know of your disappointment in the side strips and a warning to future buyers to be careful and seek out quality (if possible). That's why we are all on this site.
Merry Christmas.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Please allow me to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS and prosperous NEW YEAR...and let's hope we all can keep on jeeping (providing our damn diesel filters don't block up).

Hi Colozzie, if you like the strips so much, why not have a professional panel shop fit these on using their own 'trade grade' double sided tape? It's a shame the product may be good, but the only issue is the tape. Worth a try - I think!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Let me say I have enjoyed being on this site. Had many a discussion on this site, via private message and private emails with persons like "The Captain' and "Robo_70" who have left this site now for various reasons. I remember Captain Slobodan wanting us all to get together etc. Realistically, that rarely happens. People come and go on this site and one day I too will add to those statistics. I note many new names listed on the site now and remember the excitement prior to the launch of this car. The excitement on waiting your turn to get on the Wharf camera's for a sneak preview. When my turn came I had no idea how to use the camera and headed straight off into the bushes and my time was up before I regained control of the camera. It's been a good year overall. Probably next year many names on this site will find their way onto the MY15 forum. I have enjoyed the trip and it has been a pleasure reading everyones comments. Once again, Merry Christmas and remember to keep your jeep close to the family barbeque or dining table so you can keep making that fleeting glance over your shoulder at her beauty.

It doesn't matter who you talk to or what you read there will always be claims it works and claims it doesn't work.
I was a maintenance supervisor at a large power station that had cathodic(electronic) protection on most of the pipe work that was in the ground. From what I saw the pipe work that had cathodic protection, although had small amounts of surface rust, was not showing any major rust problem. The pipework without the electronic protection was not holding up very well with rust flaking.
Most major industry uses cathodic protection on the pipework for new installations.

From my observation electronic rust protection does work.

I agree Cathodic protection does work, but, in most cases a sacrificial anode is used, in the report (and I am not familiar with the install instructions) indicated that the negative terminal was being used as the anode, this means I also agree with the report as saying it would be useless.

Merry Christmas to you and your family as well Webber. And you're so right - this site is brilliant (Thanks to Scott and everyone else involved). No MY15/16 for us - We'll probably wait out the warranty and then some, and then take a look at maybe '17/18.

I will be joining in the Cherokee threads though come June. (hopefully )

Still, 6 months in now and 14000kms on the clock and she's still running perfect. An absolute joy to drive.

Am going out now to clean her. We are hosting a big thing tomorrow including a few folk that we haven't seen in quite some time (yes - I'm all sorted and ready to go ) and I cannot let her be seen for the first time, in the state she is currently in. (Can't really see well out of the rear window at the moment it is so covered in dust and dirt and that would be one of the cleaner parts ).

So, once again all the very best, have a great Christmas and New Year.

Merry Xmas and a safe New Years to all. My car will spend Xmas and New Years at the workshop but luckily I'm not at home (so couldn't drive anyway) and in Fiji for Xmas. Hopefully fixed when I'm back early in the new year so I can take it on a long drive towing the boat for next leg of my holidays

We get NO warning.
The "Warning" in the EVIC and limp mode occur at the same time, so you can't do what the warning is telling you to do.
There must be an anomaly in either Aus specific or more likely export programming that causes this fault.
In the US, the warning does come on before limp mode is forced, as it should be.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Webber, if you are still in touch with Bruno, i hope things are better as I know it turned to shit for him a while back.

Everyone have a safe time on the roads with all the crazies out there.
