Hi Folks,

Heading to dealer tomorrow to pick up DW's new Cherokee Limited. Got the ADII.

I have a MY2014 so can't tell you. What I can tell you is that I belong to a Chrysler paid focus group of MY2014 owners and the overwhelming opinion is that they are glad they bought the MY 2014 as they don't want to deal with start/stop even though it can be turned off. This is what they told Chrysler but I doubt it will make a difference as Chrysler has to meet EPA mpg guidelines and start/stop is how they are doing it.

I have a 2015 TH V6. Stop/start works great. I use it all the time. My wife says she hates it, but she won't even try it. I think if you use it a few times, you will find it is pretty seamless.

I test drove a Volvo a few months ago with the Stop-Start system and although it felt "weird" at first, I soon forgot about it.

Glad to hear from dldoom that the Cherokee system appears seamless. Looking forward to seeing this technology on our 2015 Cherokee

Re: 2015 Cherokee

Thank you kindly for all the input folks.

Took the KL (yet to be named) on a weekend road trip - wedding. Start /stop worked great. Found you should give it just a "fraction" of a second from removing your foot from the brake and stepping on the gas. Again, only a fraction of a second. We both like it and as was pointed out above, if it were in a situation where it was a hassle you can always turn it off.
Coming home it started to rain. As DW, was reaching for the wiper switch the wipers came on by them selves. Gave DW, (and me) a bit of a start. I asked her if she rotated the switch - she said no, she was just reaching for it.
The ACC distance control will take a bit of getting use to though as well as the +/- speed controls. Went to de-accelerate with the "set-" button and "held it". I might as well of hit the brakes hard. Just got to learn the little intricacies of the car.
All in all, the car is great. Road and handled quite well. Ride was good - even with ADII. Only option she didn't get was the phone charging pad. Will start checking mileage after a few tanks of gas and the first oil change.

Thanks again,

Johnny Canuck

Congrats! As for the wipers, if she moves the speed selector on the stalk to the off position, they will not come on automatically!

I leave my wipers on all the time and let the Rain Sensitive Windshield Wipers manage them. What's really cool is how they vary the speed depending on the intensity of the rain.

I like it. Reminds me of the gas golf carts. I'm learning how to keep it from shutting down the engine if I know it's going to be a short stop; like not coming to a dead stop. Normally I just let it do its thing. It's pretty smooth.

Re: 2015 Cherokee

Picked up my new Cherokee Limited on Wednesday. Got 250 miles on it with a lot of it in the city. Just love the stop/start. City lights take forever to change and the idea of not wasting gas appeals to me. Engine is running before I can hit the gas pedal.
