Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I've read those two threads Snuke... not much in them for me. The BAFX unit looks very similar to the one I added the picture of, however I'd like to hear from someone with the exact one. There's tons of them on eBay for under $9... I suppose I should just get one given that!

Cheers,
Steve

No, only the dealer can do it.

I'm shopping for new tyres, did a fair research. What are your opinions on Bridgestone 265/60R18 D697 LT? Thanks.

Hi Guys, Some quick questions

Anyway to enable power windows after unlock without engine running or accessories on?

Also, anyway to increase the default volume setting of the text message reading system?

Thanks

Yeah this is the most stoopid arz thing hey? I always think twice about opening the sunroof... because I know for sure I'm going to get annoyed with having to re-energise so I can close it.

I reiterate: it's like no one ever test drove these things as if on a "daily use" basis.

Ciao,
Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

[QUOTE=mmcrh;1026036]Sending this post at the dealership awaiting assessment of "premature death" of front tyres... ]

Here's result of wheel alignment. The culprit is Toe, in particular Front increased by 11-12mm for no apparent reason between 3k and 7k as all driving has been exclusively on flat highway, and tyre pressure always 38psi. The increase baffles technician who opens a case with Chrysler. In the interim, I have to soldier on.

I'm asking collective wisdom of forum members: can anyone shed some light on possible cause of shift in toe? Thanks in advance.


Front: Toe (mm) Caster Camber
Left Right. Left Right. Left Right
From factory. -14.3 -11.9 5"07' 5"26' -0"59' -1"23'
Aligned at dealer, mileage 3k. 0.5 0.6 6"23' 5"41' -1"08' -0"53'
Report at mileage 7k. 11 11.7 5"32' 4"47' -0"50' -0"13'

Rear:

From factory. -2.1 -3.5 -1"25' -1"39'
Aligned at dealer, mileage 3k. -1.0 -4.5 -1"24' -1"40'
Report at mileage 7k. 2.6 2.5 -0"44' -0"56'
