4) Uconnect-my 3 G phone will not stay connected. Uconnect says they are adding phones as the software is being upgraded.
Love the car-very sad about the issues
Has anyone else experienced these problems or did I buy a dud?
I can't help you with #3 as I can't find anything in the full Cherokee manual about Eco Mode. We are talking about a JEEP and JEEPS are not known for getting the best mpg nor did I expect that.
As to #4, I have an extremely cheap Android Samsung Galaxy Tracfone (less than $100). Sometimes when I am working in the garage I will turn my Cherokee's 8.4N on. It will immediately pair with my Tracfone which is still in the house in my bedroom and stay paired until I shut my Cherokee's 8.4N off. I think the issue is with your phone and not with the Cherokee. Uconnect only pairs with specific versions of bluetooth. I just had the free firmware upgrade (13.48.3) done to my Cherokee's Uconnect. With the upgrade when in the garage I can even bluetooth pair to my Tracfone in the house and then use Pandora over my wifi in the house while not using any minutes or data off of of my Tracfone.
Respectfully, I have a couple of suggestions for you. Stop running to your dealer with imagined problems. I don't really see one real issue among your 4 supposed problems but I do see an uninformed owner. Here are my 2 suggestions:
1.) Read throughly on both Jeep Garage.org and Jeep Cherokee Club.com as to how your vehicle is supposed to operate.
2.) Call 1-800- MyJeep, Auburn Hills Chrysler Headquarters, and politely request they send you the 4 FULL manuals that go with your Cherokee. You are entitled to one FREE copy of all 4 full manuals with FREE shipping with the purchase of your Jeep. When they arrive sit down and read them cover to cover. I think you will find that you really don't have any problems.
Relax, enjoy, and stop being so uptight. I really don't think you have any problems yet.
