Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Its nice hearing the positive stories. You have to remember that most of the happy people never post, just the people who have had problems and want to share their problems.

Im looking forward to the Jeep. Ive been following my jeeps journey. She left the Penn/Maryland border this AM. Hopefully shell be closer to NJ by tomorrow morning.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

10,500 miles on mine have had nothing but a good experience....all updates and recalls were performed by my dealer on the normal timely basis...

Drove 3000 miles on a trip to the East Coast in October, 31 miles per gallon and flawless performance the whole way including the GPS that took us through a lot of crazy East Coast towns with no problems at all.

Was one of the very first one to get Dom's plate, put it on and never looked back,getting second oil change on Monday and topping off DEF before we leave for Florida for six weeks in January, expecting another flawless performance while I'm gone ....That's why we bought this truck, very happy so far.... 2014 black Summit CRD

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

10500 miles on my Limited 4x4 diesel. Lifetime mpg is 28.


Had lurching issue with the transmission. This started around 5000 miles right after I plugged in a cheap OBDII adapter. The truck started going into regen every 150 miles which caused fuel economy to tank and the display started going wonky. I took the truck in, they flashed the TCM (even when I told them that I thought this might have happened due to the OBDII adapter).


So, while I think it would be good if the OBDII interface would better handle funky adapters with these possible counterfeit elm chips, I really can't fault the truck or Jeep for my cheapness .


So, would I buy the same vehicle again? At the drop of a hat.

I'm going to amend this. I'm a programmer... if I spent all my time building checks into every bit of code I write to try and take care of every eventuality, I'd never make any progress.

So this was simply a case of me being cheap.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Man I wish we could just place our order! Anyone know if car play will make it into the JGC lineup? Saw the 19 speaker system in the Summit was on hold now.

This is the first person I heard of that pulls an airstream with the crd. That is my plan also, I have a 19 ' airstream but planning to get a 25'. I dont think it weights as much as yours, but glad to hear its working well. Do you tow in sport mode or normal? How about setting up your weight dist hitch with the air suspention.

A tad off topic, but since you asked:

Here's a brief recap of my first towing experience with my diesel Grand Cherokee:

- towed a 25' Airstream from Las Vegas to Pasadena and back.
--GAWR Front Actual 3140 lb
--GAWR Rear Actual 3700 lb
--Trailer 6600 lb
--Combined trailer/vehicle 13440 lb
--Average OAT 60 F
--Propride 3 Hitch and Direclink brake controller

- EVIC fuel milage averaged 19.5 mpg to Pasadena and 18.4 on return trip
- Engine performance
--EVIC oil temp climbed to 257 on long uphill pulls (12 mile 6% grade)
--Coolant temp climbed to on notch below red area on gauge
--Slowing from 55 to 50 mph stabilized engine temps
--Temps quickly recovered on level or downhill grades
--Engine torque and power were not an issue
- Transmission performance
--EVIC transmission temp climbed to 203 once, but mostly stayed at 195
--Gear shifts were smooth and appropriate for the load (ECO mode OFF)

Overall, my first towing experience was very positive. The biggest limitation is tongue weight, especially if you are carrying passengers/cargo in the Jeep. I carried no cargo in the Jeep and you can see with full fuel and DEF I was max'ed out on the front and rear axle loading with just my spouse and I in the Jeep. A good weight distributing/anti-sway hitch and brake controller are a must. Setting up the weight distributing hitch is pretty simple. You make sure the Jeep and the trailer are on level ground and then disable the air suspension via the UConnect settings Interface. There is some debate over ECO mode OFF vs. towing in Sport mode. If you use ECO mode off, your weight distribution will change when the Jeep goes into Aero mode. Lastly, I highly recommend finding a CAT scale and using it to set up your hitch.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Picked up my CRD today. It is an excellent vehicle. No issues with fit or finish. Drives like a dream. Installed Dom's plate when we got home, so I'm ready for any renegade puddles I may encounter. The dealer was a breeze to work with, and they matched the quote I received from Ziegler on the 8/120 maxcare.
