Yeah maybe, but that aside, I really like his 'Crossfire' that he has in his sig. I've always loved the shape of them. There are a handful of them on Carsales, not that expensive and I've always just wanted to go 'What the heck - let's just get one' but have never been bold enough.

Maybe one day...

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Another story in the Daily Telegraph this morning bashing Jeep GC on fuel consumption. It's based on a UK Choice investigation but doesn't seem to correspond with the experiences of owners on this forum plus my own monitoring unless of course they are fiddling the computer system VW style .

Seems someone was unhappy with their Jeep, but all the issues sound fixable, and common on early 2013 build MY14s.

After purchasing the 4WD in 2013, it was beset with problems including burning smells in the car and steering which constantly pulled to the left.
The vehicle also went into limp home mode three times, leaving Mr Sethi’s wife and young son stranded in the car without power.

Ha Ha funny, but seriously, what a clueless bogan, and unfortunately for him probably a clueless dealer / mechanic .



He Spent $8K doing that video.

The complaints related to directly in the article and the "rap" do appear to be simple and fixable.

The steering to left thing is the camber adjust TSB back in Nov 2014 - fixed for free
and the limp mode would be the DPF software flash in Dec 2014 - fixed for free
not sure about the "smells" but they'd chuck in a free Charcoal cabin filter according to another TSB.


One point I agree on is we do need "lemon laws" to make sure manufacturers don't send out sloppily manufactured product and that dealers don't just fob off their customers with issues, which appears to have happened to this dude to get him to this point.

I can understand where he is coming from, even simple issues are amazingly hard to get fixed at some dealers, it'd be easy for a lay person to get lost in it and think the car is a dud.

The dealer network is 90% of the issue, cars will never be fault free but they should actually be fixed, not made worse.

I only recently had my issues resolved after significant FCA escalation and an NCAT lodgement.
