Do some searching in the forum, I vaguely remember someone having a similar rattle and finding something had come loose under the dash.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi All,

I read somewhere that Milous? will provide a "Build Sheet" that details your vehicle. So you can check its not DCR instead of Granite for example.

Do I PM Milous for that or does it get sent as a matter of course?

Thanks in advance.

Gr8Ness.

Can't work your video, but check the silver heat shielding around the bottom of the exhaust pipe that would be just under your feet on the drivers side - if it almost touches the exhaust it will rattle in some conditions - just bend it away a fraction.


The other one is a bolt on the firewall approx equal with the bottom of the steering wheel - you'll have to search for the thread on it to remove the panel and identify it though ( it is sometimes loose )

Made me laugh Mate.... I hope get a decent vehicle. Been watching your build status along with a few others on here.
Best of luck to all of us.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I confess Rocksfly. The colour references were for your benefit.

It was intended to 'lighten the moment' for you. I doubt I'd be as patient if My White Overland with Beige interior turns out to be something different.

I do think though that you were the unlucky 1 in 1000. So thanks for taking the hit for the team

I think luck definitely plays a part. Whilst many forum members have disappointments (or horror stories), many more have had a good run and that is all I want.

I bought a car in a few years ago that was an absolute lemon, and I'd waited nearly four months for that. I was so keen for that car to be good. I wont say what make, but the colour was Citric Acid. For those that recognise that colour name will know the company and car model.

Good luck to us all.

I'll keep watching the progress of mine and others through the build and delivery timeline. I am surprised how many are for Brisbane owners, all ordered around the new year.

Gr8Ness

Took my GC out today in the mud under the escort of two Land Rover Defenders. Let's just say they were impressed.
Didn't get it bogged, despite the stock tyres.
Had an awesome time.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Cheers Gr8Ness,
Realised it was for me and thinking how you knew I might be reviewing this and other threads have me cause to enjoy the reference.
There does seem to be a bunch of stuff going wrong for quite a few folk. I think I've taken the view that more people post about what's wrong with their vehicle than those who have good things to say. Those people are to busy enjoying their vehicles and simply getting on with their busy lives..... That's not to say we are any less busy, just a damn sight more anxious.

All the best, back to waiting and checking for the correct colour.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Nice pic Bigskiddy. Is that a smile I see on you face?

Gone over the 20,000km mark now - due for service on Wednesday and yes, Rocksfly and Gr8Ness, forums are a drawcard for the folk that have issues.

Nearly a year old now - came off the line on April 13 2013. Couldn't ask for a better vehicle.

There is an old saying that goes 'Don't meet trouble half-way'

With all this rain you don't even need to wash it afterwards.

Just as I got back on the bitumen at Moss Vale it pelted down.

Tomorrow it goes to the dealer to get the oil leak fixed, I guess they can clean it underneath for me.

Mine will be sharing the workshop with yours SJandL.

Do you know where your oil leak is?
