1st time Jeep Owner

Hi all,

glad to find this site and group. Have been member of other auto forums and really found it worthwhile. Living in Australia and looking forward to going off road with our new 2014 GC 4x4.

So we've had it for just over a week and love it except for some "gremlins" we've found. Wondering if anyone else has discovered these and has some answers. The dealer is sort of helping but I reckon they could be doing more.

The A/C has a mind of it's own - set it for 21C which takes ages to get cool then if you adjust it 1 degree warmer it goes straight to hot! Takes on average 10 mins to cool back down. Passenger side often Has anyone else had this problem and what was the fix? I am putting pressure on the dealer to replace the ac system.

The other one is a flapping or rattle type noise underneath just in front of driver position - can't tell where it's coming from exactly.

Anyway, hopefully all just new model new car bugs that are easy fixes cause it's a nice ride and we hope to have it a long time.

Cheers

Welcome...

You might want to also check out WK2Jeeps.com - 2011-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The rattle MIGHT be a bracket that I think is covered in one of the TSBs there.

Depending on your build date and your engine you might also encounter a few other items that can be annoying, but not serious. Surf around.
