I had a burning oil smell in the cabin it ended up being the carpet next to the gas pedal touching the coolant pipe going to the heater core melting and burning the carpet put a standoff in there problem gone.

Re: oil smell on shutdown

2000 miles, and I smelled it to a couple times, thought maybe it was still some new car smell getting burned off underneath. It's going for it's first oil change, so I'm going to crawl under there before and after it goes in. Hope it's not a problem, we traded our troubled(meaning Jeep didn't know what to do with it) '13 hemi for this because she didn't want anything but the grand Cherokee, and she drove MB, BMW, Audi. If it's a problem, looks like we're getting a Q7(her second choice) or '15 escalade.

You read the horror stories about a few JGCs on this forum, but do a thorough review of the Audi Q7 as well. No manufacturer is immune to a few bad apples, or lemons as it were. I have heard and read horror stories from Audi Q7 owners that were literally left stranded with throttle issues. Audi could not identify the issue and told the owners, "we can't help you, we don't know what the problem is". This not the norm for Audi, just understand it happens to ALL makes. Good luck either way.

Brainstormed, totally understood. This is our 11th jeep vehicle(wranglers, cherokees, grands all pretty trouble free)in the family in the last almost 17 years, so we are pretty loyal to jeep, one grand got retired with 250k miles, another has 210k and still going. Wife just said, if we have problems with this one, we try something else. I realize sometimes a model has a problem, as all cars do, (our beemer's radio had a mind of its own) hence we traded our '13 for a '14 grand cuz jeep didn't know what to do with it. The Q7 just happens to be what she would try next or the new Escalade. Her dad's '03 escalade has been pretty trouble free in 130k miles, and he's not real anal about vehicle care. We were going to buy an unlimited wrangler to replace the '13, and give the diesel time to work out any bugs, but she said, "I love my grand"...that sealed it, we came home with another one. Very happy with this one so far, wife just will be quick to switch if this one has NON-FIXABLE issues.
