In Vegas we only have 2 options: foot to the floor or stopped. Nice to be able to go now.

Re: 2016 Cherokee Arrived at Dealer today

First 1000 miles and first impressions:

It really does make a difference in performance in sport mode.

Have finally learned the button presses when starting up. Hit A to turn off the auto engine stop, turn knob to sport mode, hit accept on the screen.

The brakes are still making noises when stopping, but I figure they haven't fully seated yet. Tried to do a few hard stops to bed them, but the nanny kicks in. So, I will let them seat themselves eventually. It doesn't really matter.

The battery on one of the fobs died. Went to the dealer and they said to expect to change the battery often as it is always transmitting data. Cheap enough. You might get a hint when the back tailgate doesn't respond as the sensor is further away than those in the door handles.

This is the first vehicle I have had with auto windshield wipers. They work fine but it is a bit strange to not have to touch levers to switch them on. Same for the auto lights, work as advertised.

So things are fine with the Jeep. Still happy and no transmission issues whatsoever. Love the stereo system, it rocks. Stay tuned for a 2k report.

Re: 2016 Cherokee Arrived at Dealer today

So far i have stayed away from any tranny flashes with my 15 V6 as thats what sowered me on my 14 TH with the dam down shifting only went to 3 rd gear and if i didnt wait 3 seconds at a stop it would start out in 3 rd gear and 4 to 5 seconds it would start out in 2nd gear and sometimes 1st gear. Chrysler said to order a valve body and the dealer did but the tranny guy said thats not going to help lol. So instead of going lemon law dealer made me a great deal on a 15 limited FWD as i dont need a 4x4 here in ca and so far its been great. Theres a big gain in track times going from 4x4 to FWD and also better mpg. Heres 2 1/8 mile runs at the same DA altitude on the 14 TH and 15 limited FWD.

I lived out in Vegas for about 4 years...that does a lot to explain my auto insurance rates. Heh.

Congrats on the new ride...after a year-and-a-half, I am still in love with my 2014 Trailhawk. May good luck always ride with you...
