1. Dealer knew very little about the vehicle when I ordered it and then made a great effort to outlearn me. When the truck arrived at the dealership, I called and told them I thought it has arrived (from secret knowledge). They seemed surprised and stated that the truck was out front unloading it as we speak. I scheduled pickup for the following day. When I arrived, my wife and I went over the checklist. I will now separate the dealership into two categories: Sales and Service. Sales knocked it out of the park. They ordered more DEF for me when they ran out (They sell Ram's and knew it needed it). I showed two relatively minor issues to the service guy (passenger taillight out of alignment and the fuel door poorly fit). The service guy stated that wasn't his problem and they were not a body shop. I thought, hmm what a curious answer. light bulbs began to go off. I then asked him to update the UConnect software and he stated that dealerships can not do that if the VIN doesn't ask for an update. I asked if he would check or ask the mechanic to check and he stated they don't do that. I then stated that he would check, right and he stated no. At this point I want to punch this dude. The sales guy looked at me and tried to defuse the situation by installing my new weather mats and asking if they looked okay. So then, I needed side steps and skid plates. I had already paid for these and was at their mercy. I bit my tongue and sat down to wait. The side steps were installed and look great on the truck. The dealership then took the vehicle to get extra undercoating. When the truck returned, it was 340 PM. The service guy told me that it takes 2.5 hours to install the skid plates and he would be unable to accomplish that. I told him it was an hour job and why would he lie to me. He stated that they have never installed the plates before and wanted to pad the time if there was any issues. He then told me to reschedule at my convenience. He then walked away. Once I do get the skid plates installed I will have a conversation with the general manager / service manager about how I will walk away from my free oil change, and any extra spendage of fundage because of service guy "Brad" at Ziegler in Downers Grove. on to the truck:

2. My wife and I spent a week tooling around Chicago in the new Jeep and then drove it to Austin Texas for Thanksgiving. ACC is the best thing in the world. This vehicle was simply amazing to drive. We averaged 28.9 Miles per gallon and it was amazing. Once in Austin, we drove to my Uncles gun range to shoot and have some fun. We went through some muddy areas and a lot of unimproved roads to get there. No issues. The Jeep handled everything with poise. I noticed while we were there and I fueled up the DTE came up with 701 miles. I was knocked over. My wife and I drove back yesterday from Austin to Chicago (non-stop). Driving in this truck is effortless and we had three drink stops for ourselves for every fuel stop. Jeep and JNAP should be applauded for there efforts. They certainly set the bar high. Last evening, I was sitting in traffic next to a new Land Rover and the other guy was checking the Jeep out. Simply an amazing vehicle. To steal a jingle, ... I'm loving it!
Run, don't walk to the next Jeep dealer when it comes time for service. Updates are their job. They may say that is the current update, but we know better. Your dealer should be bending over backwards to make you happy when you spend this much $$$ on a Jeep. Go to a dealership that actuarially wants your business, rather that on that treats you like you are bothering them.

Ziegler jeep in downers grove Illinois and their piss poor attitude is one of the main reasons why I didn't buy my 2014 overland there. Make sure you don't over do it during the test drive because the police out in that Illinois suburb have the same attitude.

Owen H:
Man really sorry to hear this. Can you imagine the response the guys at JNAP that build these JGC's would have? They build a fine unit and some dealership alienates a customer for life this way. Dealerships are independently run and I have seen this with every manufacturer.
For what this JGC cost you can buy a new BMW or Merc.
I hope these marginal dealers get their head out of the sand soon or all the fine work to build a quality product will be wasted.

We all know that Jeep and Chrysler reads these forums so you reps for the company might want to note what happened here...

I will be picking my SFU up most likely mid Jan in Houston and do believe that the dealership there is more customer oriented...

I think you made the right choice then.

I wanted to swap mine out for Mich AT2s but the week the Jeep came in I had to do some traveling and couldn't go straight to the tire shop, so I put too many miles on them to really trade them as like new.

I have the 18" Mich tires that came with the OR2 package.

Duck season started here on Thanksgiving so my new Jeep is...VERY muddy. We've had freezing/thawing conditions here and things are a mess. I haven't gotten the Jeep stuck yet, but I've spent a lot of time in Mud Mode on the 4WD and having to really flog it to get where I need to be. The 4WD system does a great job of using technology to compensate... but these tires have no grip. Even steering is hard. This morning the road to the blind was frozen, but it was nasty coming back out this afternoon. I wasn't even getting enough traction to steer - I was having to turn (tires were just slide, no turn being made) then hit the throttle to pull the front around. I never had to do this with the AT tires I've run in the past.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

I was going to order a Diesel Overland with Advanced Tech and ORA II, but found one that was almost identical (except it had the CD player) at a local dealer. So I wrote a big check last weekend, and finally upgraded from a 2001 Laredo. All I can say is WOW! I'm glad I waited all year for this. This vehicle is powerful, capable, efficient, and refined.

I'll post a more thorough review once I've had a chance to really break it in, but for now I'll share a few photos and initial impressions. Keep in mind I'm in a high state of initial enthusiasm, I'm sure I'll uncover more issues with time

Fit and Finish: 9.5 - I have only found one problem so far, and it's minor. It looks like something pressed up against the rubber weatherstripping on the rear passenger windows. It cut the rubber a little. Other than that, this vehicle looks gorgeous on the inside and out. Everything feels really solid. I don't see anything blatantly misaligned. The leather stitching and interior finishes are superb, and I didn't notice any flaws with the painting or body component fit.

Technology: 9.0 - I didn't know I needed all this cool technology. The blind spot sensor is invaluable, should be standard in all vehicles. UConnect is great. Very easy to setup and use. At least there are physical / analog controls for some key functions (compared to vehicles like the Volt where it's all touch). For the GPS nav, I'm still trying to figure out if I'll be able to display the red and yellow lines showing traffic congestion (I have that on my Garmin, and really miss it). I love how I can just walk up to the car, touch the handle, and it unlocks. And remote start has been useful with the exceptionally cold weather we've been experiencing.

Power: 9.0 - This thing can fly! I have to temper my enthusiasm when climbing up a big hill. I've barely got my foot on the gas pedal and I'm going 85 MPH, but it doesn't feel like it, and I have to slow down. When you need to quickly accelerate, there's about a 1-second lag... and then you reach lift-off speeds. I'd prefer a more instantaneous response, but it's still quite gratifying and gets the job done. Once it kicks in, you keep on going. Passengers in the rear seat were certainly impressed, and maybe a bit nervous

Efficiency: 9.0 - I'm upgrading from a gas guzzling V8 that gave me maybe between 7-15 mpg, so this is a dream for me. I'm averaging in the low to high 20s now (with instant mpg in the low 30s on flats and slight inclines), and I keep waiting for the tank to get low, but it hasn't! I'm still running on the full tank from the dealer. It's mind boggling. I would've filled up my old Jeep twice in this timeframe now. I still have yet to buy diesel from a gas station

See attached for some photos I shot on Mt. Tamalpais in Marin, which is just north of San Francisco.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Congrats. I finally found one on the ground or more specifically on the way to the dealer. Could have had one some time back but I was determined to get the brown interior in the summit and in this area nearly every floor car has the black. Regardless you have the first reported diesel picked up on the ground that I've seen. Good work and enjoy.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Hey Guys,

Iíve been a little scarce, but I wanted to weight in.

Iím almost at 1000 miles, and this thing has been awesome. Iíve wholly had a similar experience with mild quirks in Uconnect, but otherwise flawless operation of most systems.

I do live in the mountains (where a Jeep truly belongs) and so I thought Iíd highlight a few things Iíve experienced there.

Engine block heater - works great. The plug is just long enough to reach the gap at the fender/headlight on the passenger side, and ďpeak outĒ. Extension cord works from there. Iíve had only one cold start incident, with otherwise flawless operation. I did have a sputtery start following day long block heater use, but this was after a day of parking outside in -20 ambient with 50mph winds in an exposed area. my MIL (check Engine light) came on, and has remained on for a day since. Service advisor is going to pull the code on Monday, and I will post an update if it was anything other than super cold fuel, and a tough start.

Cold weather Diesel use - I fuel at the Kum&Go by my house. They advertise that their Diesel is pretreated with Power Service Diesel additive. However, Power Service recommends doubling the dose of additive below 0 degrees, and I noticed quieter and smoother running at below zero temps with additional additive in my tank (following the incident above).

Yakima Ski Rack - I attached mu yakima rack, and it interfaces well with the factory rails. Skis up to about 140cm will not contact the tail gait when it is opened. Longer skis will get loaded with tips forward to prevent tail gait contact.

Custom Tint, Inc. - This shop in Frisco CO has provided the following pain protection. Front bumper, grill, headlights, 18inches of hood, door handle cups, full rocker panel, and rear view mirror coverage. It looks awesome, and should protect these surfaces from rock damage as well as anything possibly could.

Tires - I replaced the Michelins with Goodyear AT Adventure with Kevlar in the stock size. These tires run quietly, and have great traction in deep and packed snow. Mileage on dry pavement appears to be in line with the stock tires. Iíve been getting 27-28mpg average with 90% highway miles.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

I have gotten to the point where I have driven and lived with my new jeep enough to share some initial impressions.

Buying experience: This forum provided me with valuable information that helped to make my buying experience relatively easy. I had been looking for a diesel 4wd vehicle for several years and had become aware of Jeep Garage before the official announcement of a diesel Grand Cherokee. I followed the discussions in the various forums here off and on. I learned about the various affiliate programs available and was able to know about all available options and pricing and extended warranties. When I went to the dealer to finally place my order I was well equipped with the knowledge of exactly what I wanted and what I should pay to get it. I felt that I was able to negotiate a fair deal. I know others got better deals but I also know many will get worse. I did have to help educate my dealer a little bit but they were pretty helpful and overall I have been pleased in the experience to date. I was also fortunate that I waited to order until after Jeep began actually shipping. Once my order went in, production seemed to be running smoothly and my vehicle arrived in just over one month. Pickup went smooth. My Jeep had a full tank of diesel and a full tank of DEF. My salesman had learned about the vehicle and went over everything with me.

Fit and Finish: Excellent. I have no major complaints so far. There are a few minor issues. My gas fill door is slightly out of alignment. Also there is a strange bump out in the cloth covering under the dash in the passenger footwell area. Not big deals. Everything seems to be tight. The cabin seems well insulated. I do not hear much diesel clatter when inside the cabin. The seats are comfortable and easily adjusted.

Engine and Transmission: Just what I was hoping for. Power seems plentiful and quickly accessible. I spend a lot of time in the western mountains of Maine and the northern part of the state. Driving through areas that sent my Toyota searching for gears have not been a problem (my Toyota has 200,000 miles of great driving so owes nothing). No harsh downshifts and lots of power when needed going up-hill or passing. The added fuel efficiency is great too. I am used to getting 10-15mpg. I am now getting 22-28 mpg through 4 tankfulls. I would love to see the low 30ís others are reporting but I donít think I will see those numbers driving where I drive. Maybe the mileage will go up during the summer with summer mix fuel. It would have been nicer if the engine heater block cord was a little longer. I will not pull a trailer with any real weight until next spring so I do not have any feedback on towing yet.

Technology: So far so good. I am still learning all that the Jeep has. I have read others comments and issues but so far I have not had any. The display is nice and easy to use. There are more stations available between radio and satellite than I care to learn about. Sound is good, not great, but this is not a real complaint. I had no problem pairing with my iphone. Nav seems to work well, I do wish it showed elevation. Remote start is nice. I like that the steering wheel heats up with remote starts. The cabin has heated up well and quickly even on cold days. I also like the auto dimming hi beams. Still getting used to the shifter.

Other: I switched out my tires for the winter. I put Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7ís on for winter. I have had great luck with Nokians for years so plan to run the original Michelins during the summer and the Nokians during the winter until they wear out. I will then get better all-season tires. I do like the look of the 18 inch wheels. I installed mud flaps. I also put in Husky mats and a Mopar rear mat. All work well and fit well. I put my Thule rack on the top. I wish that the Jeep still had the flipper rear glass. With a box installed on top, the rear door barely opens. This is disappointing. I am afraid this may scratch the paint on the rear spoiler. I am used to driving a larger SUV that had more body roll. The Jeep corners better and feels tighter as I drive it around. (This last observation is probably not fair since I am comparing my new Jeep to a 12 year old truck). I have not noticed any of the odors that others have complained about. Finally, I have not had the opportunity to go off road yet. We have had some real icing and I do not want to chance it. I guess at this point I will wait until Spring.

Overall I am very happy with my purchase. The SFU is delivering as promised!

I'm looking at those Goodyears as well. I have the stock Michelin's and was not impressed with the snow traction but they seem great on dry roads. I've been averaging around 20 mpg with a lot of city and near zero temperatures.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

I just got out of a 2012 WK2 Overland Hemi and into a Overland Diesel. I have put just over 2K miles on my Overland EcoDiesel already (did a couple road trips within FL and tow my skiff down to the Keys just about every weekend). Good gas mileage under 75mph (hoping it is a little better at higher speeds). I've noticed a drop in gas mileage to about 18-20mpg at 80mph.

Towing my skiff, I usually keep it under 75 and can still accomplish 20-22mpg on average.

Overal impressed with the powertrain and overall fit and finish. Having owned a couple of Mercedes W163 MLs in the past, I couldn't be happier with my switch to the latest WK2 Jeeps.
